we use Lookup fields to connect Lists with e.g. Document Libraries. In the SharePoint web view, you can easily navigate to the document or folder by this. If you open the same thing in SharePlus, the Lookup field content is not even shown as a link and so also not working. I know about the splus:// connection, but I think Lookups are somewhat better, because they keep correct also on modifying an item.
Is there a possibility to come?
Thanks in advance.
Thank you for posting at IG forums!
As I understand, lookups do not link to the document directly but get a column of their metadata.
How do you see this in a web browser? Can you post a screenshot?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
I think you are right: The looked up content is shown in SharePlus, but without any link to anything. In SharePoint I have a link to the properties of the references item and from there to the document folder itself (if the lookup field is a document share).
Find here a screenshot out of SharePoint:
The "TestFolder" link links to the properties of the TestFolder. The link in these properties then point to the "TestFolder" contents.
I too am interested in having Lookup columns that are linked to items provide the same functionality in Shareplus as in Sharepoint. Having functioning links to items on other lists is useful. In Sharepoint I have looked at the URLs of the links from both the item being Lookedup in its own list and from within the list with the Lookup. They are both links to ListForms of the same type with only difference between the two links being the link in the lookup column has a ContentTypeID. Will shareplus show the link if the ContentTypeID is added somehow to it? I am not a developer so forgive my ignorance.
A lookup looks for information in the column of another list. The best you could have is a lookup that gets URLs from another list. If these URLs, used the SharePlus URL Schema SharePlus would open the item, in its UI, when tapping the link.
There is one limitation to this: SharePoint doesn't allow links (to LINK type of field) that start with other protocol than HTTP(S). This makes impossible to add links that start with SHAREPLUS:// to LIKY type of fields. The workaround is to put the links in rich text fields.
If the URL value in the field is a common URL, SharePlus will open the web view.
I hope this helps making this clearer.
If the lookup field is a document share, I have a link in SharePoint that takes me to the references item's properties and then directly to the document folder. | roof painting cost nz
