HOW TO Move a list from one SharePoint to another

Contributor

In classic SharePoint you could save a list as a template, download it, and then upload it to a new SharePoint. I need to move a list (and it's contents) to a different SharePoint, how does one do that in Modern Online SharePoint?

@smithme one easy way to do it is with a flow in Power Automate.

And for the templating, use the new list templates feature that allows to create a Site Script from an existing list and provision it as part of a list design
I can't find any SharePoint actions in Power Automate that would let me copy a list to another SharePoint?

@smithme there is no specific action to copy a list, you need to have created the list you want to copy to, then in the flow use Get items  -> Apply to each -> Create item so the flow will loop through the current list and for each item it will create an item in the new list:

Okay that makes sense to me.

But, there is now way to copy the list structure, is that correct?

@smithme when you create a new list you can choose to create it from an existing list which copies the structure though not the items.
