SharePoint Cross-Site Lookup greatly extends default SharePoint Lookup function. It is a great help to users who want to search information in different sites.
SharePoint Cross-Site Lookup provides users with an out-of-box tool to search information in different sites. SharePoint list settings support intra-site lookup field but cannot meet end users' demands when it comes to looking up information on other sites in one site collection. SharePoint Cross-Site Lookup provides additional features and cross-site lookup solution.
“SharePoint Cross-Site Lookup allows users to refer to a list from a different site in one site collection and supports conversion from cross-site lookup column to default lookup type, for this reason, altering the content of cross-site lookup column in datasheet view could be done easily”, said Henry Zhang, the CTO of Brandysoft. “What is more, SharePoint Cross-Site Lookup has another new feature called find-as-you-type, which makes all the objects which are listed in the Dropdown list with the same letter as input word shadowed and chosen quickly. It also supports FILTER function of cross-site lookup items by selecting view of the lookup list”, Henry added.
Since its release, SharePoint Cross-Site Lookup has been applied by nearly 100 companies around the world. It has been proved to be a powerful tool to lookup information in different sites for SharePoint users. “With SharePoint Cross-Site Lookup, I can easily create a cross-site lookup column and search information on different sites. Furthermore, the find-as-you-type function makes it easy to select objects by one keystroke; all the words with the typed letter is shadowed and filtered in the dropdown list. It is actually a helpful assistance”, one user commented.
