Migrate SharePoint Lists to Tenant

Occasional Visitor

Hi guys,

 

I would like to move a list from tenant1 to tenant2.  Any idea on how to do this?

 

I want to take my existing list(s) including column settings (choice columns, number columns, etc.) from one tenant eg. tenant1sharepoint.com/sites  to tenant2sharepoint.com/sites

@ClaudeViret1300 Use PnP Provisioning for list migration from one tenant to another.

 

For more information, check:

Column settings like JSON formatting, Min-Max or Default values etc. will not be copied to destination list if you use export to excel and import for migrating list from one tenant to another tenant.

 

Better, use PnP Provisioning method explained in my response above OR if you want this list in multiple tenants, check if you can create & use Custom list templates in SharePoint Online/Microsoft Lists

If OP has those then yes I 100% agree with you, PNP Provisoning is the way to go :)
Question is then if the person in question has PowerShell Experience, The right accesses and permissions to do this etc. If not then importing an excel and importing it (and doing those small modification) might be easier
