Preview
Connected Field makes it easier for you to enter data into your SharePoint lists and document libraries. By creating relationships between columns you limit the number of possible values, preventing input errors. With advanced features like filtering and sorting by view, additional filters, in-place value entry and more, you make your system more intuitive and easier to use.
  • Create categories and subcategories for your documents across the system
  • In the middle of create an invoice and just realized you are missing the customer? Add it directly from the invoice, without going to a different list and losing your work
  • Save time and errors typing in values
  • Run the installation file to extract and install the product. You must be a farm administrator to accomplish this task.
  • Create a new list called Product Categories, and fill it with sample data.
  • Create a second list called Products, and add a regular lookup field to Product Categories, name it Category and fill this list with sample data.
  • Create a third list called Sales
  • Add a lookup field to Product Categories, name it Category
  • Add a Master-detail lookup field and define it according to the following:
    • In the lookup section define the field as a lookup to Products.
    • In the Parent Field select the Category field you (the lookup to Product Categories).
    • In Link Column choose the Category(the field that was mapped to Product Category in Products the filtering field in the lookup list).
  • Now add a new item to the list and see that as you choose a value from Category field, the Products field will be filtered accordingly (no page refresh is needed).
