Today I want to describe a feature in modern SharePoint that allows you to
connect two lists and libraries and dynamically filter them based on the value selected from one of the lists or libraries. I know this all sounds a bit
confusing, so let Dr. Zelfond explain this.
Perhaps it first makes sense to explain what I am talking about. Say you have two lists. One is a list of clients with the corresponding client information (client name, address, status, etc.).
SharePoint Online enables users to create dynamic filters that connect lists and libraries. This is done by creating a filter view on the list or library, which then links it to another list or library in the same site. The linked list or library will then be filtered according to the criteria set up in the filter view. Dynamic filtering can be used for many purposes such as displaying related information and providing more efficient navigation through large amounts of data. With dynamic filtering, users can quickly find what they need without having to manually go through each item one by one. Additionally, dynamic filtering allows users to easily update their views when new items are added or removed from either list or library, ensuring accuracy and consistency across all connected sources of data.
