Can I create list in SharePoint online using SharePoint 2010 List template..


  • Hi,

    In our SharePoint 2010 (On-Premise) environment we have couple of lists which have Info Path forms.

    We want to move these lists to SharePoint Online.

    Will below procedure works in SharePoint Online?

    1. Save SharePoint 2010 on premise List as a Template

    2. Download this list template from SharePoint 2010

    3. Upload this list template to SharePoint Online

    4. Create a new list in SharePoint Online using uploaded List template

  • Hi Amit,

    I tested this scenario in my environment, and the list templates with InfoPath forms worked fine in SharePoint online.

    Remember that the form cannot contain any other resources that from the site in on-premise as that would cause an error.

  • If it didn't have infopath forms and only had lookup columns, would it work if you moved the lookup lists first?
