Article Summary: What is a Call Out in SharePoint 2013


The SharePoint 2013 Callouts provide a rich but lightweight details experience for the users. Callouts are used, for example, in document libraries. A callout displays a limited, but important, amount of the information about an item. In the document library case, the callout houses some contextual information to allow users to get a preview of the details as well as a set of frequently used commands for users to act on. Many SharePoint 2013 features make use of callouts




Known limitations of the callout behavior are:

SharePoint does not display callouts for external content sources.
SharePoint does not generate callouts when rendering in UI Version 14 mode.
SharePoint only displays callouts for specific lists, depending on the list's template. For example:


Document libraries display callouts Task lists display callouts The announcements lists does not display callouts
