Parent - child relations

  Asked By: Marcus    Date: May 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3569

I'm new in this group. I'm trying to achieve parent-child relationship
between lists and/or document libs. For example, I want to keep minutes
of meetings in sharepoint. Each meeting shall be kept in one list, but
also I want to write items of each minutes of meeting and relate which
item belongs to which meeting. In summary, when I open a minutes of
meeting, I want to see all the items belong to this meeting. Is it
possible to do it?

There are quite a few Meeting site templates that do this on the site
level rather than the list  level. Your access to those templates
mostly just depends upon what version of SharePoint you're actually
running. Are you trying to do this because you don't have access to
those templates?

Thank you for your reply. I have access to these templates I checked
them but I am trying to create a project site which collects all
documents/data of a project. Using meeting  templates looks like a
solution but causes to create meeting site for each meeting, which
will cause to have about 500-600 meeting site per project. And we
have about 50-60 projects on going and increasing. Meeting is not the
only object that needs parent-child relationships actually, that is
why I was trying to solve it using lists  if possible. It is possible
to link two lists, I tried to create two lists, one meeting minutes,
another meeting items  with a column meeting minutes id. I couldn't
achieve to show the items in the same view with the meeting minutes.
Is it possible?
