We have a SharePoint 2013 Web Application, which contains two Site Collections:-
- Team Site.
- Enterprise Wiki.
And I have created 2 Site Collections because of the following differences:-
- Each Site Collection had different permissions.
- They are based on different template. Where inside the Enterprise Wiki we create Wiki Pages, etc. while for the Team Site we have a general Calendar, Document Library, Announcement List.
Now we want to create a new Customer Site, where we will have a Sub Site for each of our customers. This new customer Site will have different permission compared to the current 2 Site Collections, and each customer sub site will have 4 issue tracking lists. Now our current team site collection has an issue tracking list and there are columns that I can re-use inside our customer site’s issue tracking lists.
So which approach is better to follow:-
To create a new site collection for the customer site, and for the shared columns I will be managing them from the two site collections.
Or to create a new sub site under our current team site, this will enable me to re-use the already existing columns, but I will have to stop inheriting the site permission and define a new permission for the customer site.
Can anyone advice?
