I have created the list with Name “QuickStatus” but there is no option for directly go to the list and view the content.

Conclusion:

  • In order to go to the list directly type the name of the list after your app name

Example: “http://app-guid.contosoapps.com/sites/sphostedapps/<AppName>/Lists/QuickStatus/Allitems.aspx”

  • To View List Settings Click on the “Modify View” from the ribbon. You will see the “Settings” link on the top as shown in below screen. Click on the link and you will redirect to setting page.
