Send Total of Child List to Parent List


Posted by jennifer_little - Feb 27 ’17 at 08:33


I have a parent list called Projects for example. I have a child list called tasks which is linked to the parent list with a unique project ID. I want to calculate the total of all related child tasks and input the project total into the parent list. Example shown below:


Parent List - Projects

Project ID      Project Name     Project Total

000-001         Project a             £15.00


Child List - Tasks

Related Project ID       Task name         Task total

000-001                       Task 1                 £10.00

000-001                       Task 2                  £5.00

    You can calculate the total either in a workflow or with JavaScript directly in a 'Project' form containing a Related Items control with the related tasks. Please, find a sample in the thread:

    Make sure that the task is something that your child is interested in and can see value in. This will help them to be more motivated to complete the task. Secondly ukwritings review said, provide encouragement and praise when your child completes a task successfully. This will help them to feel good about themselves and increase their confidence.
