I am currently making a sharepoint Lists application for my company's recruiters to assist in their campus recruiting process. So far this consists of two lists, the first, Candidates, is a simple list with a candidate's name, school and other basic information as shown below: enter image description here

The other list, Candidate Feedback, is a place for our recruiters to give feedback on the candidates and has a one-to-many relationship with the Candidates list: enter image description here

Ideally what I want is to be able to have a column in the far-right of Candidates labeled "Add Feedback for Candidate" with edit buttons similar to the leftmost column. Clicking these buttons should bring up the form for the Candidate Feedback list.

I have spent some time digging around but can't find a way to do this. Any help is greatly appreciated!



A simple approach would be to use a script editor or content editor web part on the page sitting above the list view that has a button that redirects the user to the new item form of the child list or opens the child list new item form in a modal.

  • Is there a way to do this such that when the form is pulled up it already has the name of the candidate entered in the form? Jun 8 '15 at 21:52
  • That will require some script to to, you would need to pass a param over to the newitem form of the child list and then have code receiving that param that prefills data. That is a more complex method, but it is doable. Jun 8 '15 at 22:17
