Linking List with Document Library and creating a combined view

New Contributor

Hi

 

We have a regular committee with agenda topics and accompanying files (slides, excels, ..).

 

I have now created a list of topics with date, type, results, presenter etc. and a document library with a lookup-column to the topics. So each document belongs to one topic, but a topic can have zero, one or many documents. From the modelling point of view this fits. Attachments to list items would not suffice, because I also want to manage the document library as such (sync, alerts, filter etc...)

 

I now need a proper, user friendly view that shows all at once. For example:

GroupBy Date, then GroupBy Topic, then all documents (if any).

 

The problem is that I dont know how to show the many documents that belong to a list item in a view. Is there a way?

 

The other (workaround) idea is to provide a link (per item) to a preconfigured view (of the document library) that has all documents that belong to this item.

 

I am relatively new to sharepoint, so bear with me if this is a stupid question or one that has been asked many times before.

 

Thanks, Sebastian.

Hello @Sebastian8008 

 

have you tried to use WebPart connections?

 

See here for more information: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/connect-web-parts-in-sharepoint-b457668c-d843-4b1b-8977-a...

 

I think the chapter Filter a list based on a selection in another list or library can help in your scenario.
