When you add a modern page to a site, you can add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page.

This article describes the List web part, which allows you to display a list from your site on a page and customize it with your own title, view, and even size.

Types of lists you can use are custom lists, announcement lists, contact lists, and issue tracking lists.

Users can view, filter, sort, and group the list, or go to the list page by clicking See all. Additionally, formatted columns, nested groups, and attention view can be displayed in the web part.
