Inside our SharePoint online site collection >> i created a custom content type named "DC" which has the built-in document content type as its parent. then i went to our document library as usual >> enable content type management >> assign the newly created content type to the library. but i got this new message, which i were not getting before:-

so what this message is trying to say ? and is my above steps of assigning a custom content type to our document library still valid? or things have recently changed?

Thanks

    Hi @john john ,

    In September 2021, Microsoft changed content type publishing working mechanism to improve performance and make newly published and updated content types available to sites faster. This message is just a notice to end users. you can ignore it. To know how the new content type publishing works, please refer to this article: What’s changed in content type publishing.

    The steps in your post of assigning a custom content type to a document library are totally correct. Now there is also a new way to add published content types directly to a list or library:

    • Select Add column in the library.
    • Select Content type in the menu.

    • In the drop-down list, all published content types and custom content types available are listed.
      List item
    • Select the published content type that you want to add. Select Apply to confirm the addition.
