Sync options from Microsoft List choice column to Sharepoint folder choice column?

Copper Contributor

Hello, lovely people!


I'm looking for a chance to sync a choice column's options from a Microsoft List to a choice column's options in a SharePoint library folder, the idea being that whenever I add, edit or remove an option, those changes are reflected on the same choice column's options.


For this specific instance, I have a Microsoft List for inventory management that has a choice column for the product type (e.g: Laptop, Smartphone, etc.), and I want to sync all changes I do for the available options in the Sharepoint library folder's choice column for the same thing, so if I add the option for a "Printer" in the list's column, it would also be available in the folder's, and if I remove the "Laptop" option from the list's, it would also be removed from the folder's.


Thanks in advance.

if the list and library is located on the same site, you can create a third list with your options [PC, Phone, etc.]. Then on your list and library you create a lookup column instead of a choice column. You then maintain the “choices” in the third list and the two columns would be accordingly updated
