Format View JSON in Modern Lists Help

Occasional Contributor

Hi Guys

 

When using the 'Format View' pane in a SharePoint Modern list, I can create some basic JSON which works (i.e highlight 'DueDate' in red if the date entered has already past). 

 

However, if we want to keep that JSON file in a library such as Site Assets, so its centrally maintained, can we put a URL linking to it, in the 'Format View' pane?

@robtaylor1996 no I don't think so, it's expecting JSON code, not a link to it. I keep mine in Notepad++ files in OneDrive.

@RobElliott Thanks. We need to use the same JSON in many sites, is there a best way? Also some option to maintain the sites in the future in one hit as such.

@robtaylor1996 no there isn't. That's why I keep the JSON in notepad++ files then copy & paste as necessary. There's no way that I know of to update multiple sites in one go.

@RobElliott That would make a great uservoice suggestion. We used to be able to do that with our xslt.
