List or Library . stp templates


Posted by Hubbaroo - Jan 15 ’15 at 10:11

Are there procedures for using the Cross Site Lookup and or Forms Designer in a list or library on Office 365 as a design platform. Saving the list or library as a .stp template. Uploading them to another Office 365 site collection. So far I have had to export / import the forms and delete / re-create the cross site lookups.

We will also be creating site templates and will need details on that process.

Once again, thank you!

    It will work only if source lists of the Cross-site Lookup column have the same ID at the original and the target sites. But it seems that it's impossible in Office 365. So, yes you should re-create lookups each time you transfer the list. Also, you can modify their schemas programmatically via CSOM. As for forms, you can save them into a template but first you need to modify them via SharePoint Designer:
