PowerShell script: Create all column types in the Custom List and create data for those items

Creating a SharePoint list along with all column types and
related data is obviously helpful for users. However, it can take a long time,
involving many steps to get to that point. Moreover, when creating a large number
of items using Quick Edit in the Tasks list, you are limited to dragging one
item for copying, rather than using multiform data. In this article, we’ll show
you how to create a Custom List with the following data types using PowerShell
