Hi,

 

Does anybody know if Microsoft is going to enable the lookup columns to reference to lists outside a SharePoint Online site?

 

Now, with the new Lists App, you can share a list with an O365 group, just certain people or even have a private list for yourself. So, it would make sense that a lookup column can be referenced to a list outside a site, as that list can be shared with everyone in the organization. 

This would be quite handy as you could reference directly columns like "name of customer" from the "customer list" and so on...

Do you mean a lookup that is defined in a central place and that can be across sites? If so, we already have it through the content type hub that is being modernized by Microsoft

Exactly. Do you have docs on hand to test it out or this still on the roadmap?
