Cross site lookup?


  • Hi

    Currently we are planning and testing a solution using SharePoint Online.  I believe what we are after is simple but can't seem to make it work.

    We have one Site Collection.  In this Site Collection we have several sites and sub sites.  These are:

    TestSite and TestSite1 each have lists.  We'd like these lists to lookup information from each other.

    For example, TestSite has a list of sales people and related information.  TestSite1 has a list of customers and related information.  In the TestSite1 list we'd like to lookup and "attach" a sales person to the customer.

    It seems there are ways with and without apps to have a lookup within a site.  So, /TS1-SubSite can lookup information from /TestSite1 but so far can't look across sites.

    If anyone could help out we'd greatly appreciate it.
