If you want to find out who has created a SharePoint site, list or library: Sorry! There is no way from SharePoint user Interface!! You can't get "Created By" or "Created On" values anywhere.
But PowerShell is our rescuer! Lets find who has created a SharePoint list using PowerShell:
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue #Get the List and Web $web = Get-SPWeb "http://portal.crescent.com/sites/Sales" $list = $web.lists["Sales Docs"] #Get Creator and Created date of the given List Write-host "List Created by:"$List.Author Write-host "List Created on:"$List.Created #Get Site collection Creator and Created Date write-host "Site Created by:"$web.Author Write-host "Created on:" $web.Created
