I have 2 lists "People" and "Meetings". I can create meeting and add multiple people to meeting using lookup column. Now, I also have a field in People list called "Meeting assigned" where it should be autopopulated with the meetings certain user is assigned with while creating item in meeting list.

Any suggestions on how to go about this?

You are basically asking about the reverse lookup. You can get this done using the relational list.

  • Thanks for the reply but is there a way I can store the information in a column because I need to perform some filtering on those fields later. Any thoughts on that?
