reusing a sharepoint list

Jump to solution

HI

I have a list in one of my sites. I have created another site and would like to use the same list/workflow, what is the best way to implement that?

I have created the list and its content as a template and uploaded that into my new site, is that the good way to implement it?

Yes! The best way is the save the site as a template. If you have any fields that are lookups in the list they will not carry over properly. You will have to delete those fields and recreate them. Make sure the list they point to are already there. Also note the workflow will not carry over. You have to export the workflow, then import it into its destination.

I meant to say if you have lookup fields that will NOT carry over properly.

I saved my list as template and uploaded it into my new site. Now I have to upload the workflow as well.In this case I have to keep track of two workflows, if there is a change in the the business process then I have to apply the change in both of them, is there a way to eliminate that and have both list be connected to one workflow. Hope my question is clear.

I thought I seen somewhere here in the community where someone said it was possible. But I don't remember where and I've never tried it. I can try and search for ya though. Starting a new question might help.

I believe you can try writing one WF and having others just calling this

one.
