I have two fields: one "Department" and two "Team Member".

When I select say "Claims Department" from the first drop down I would like the second drop down to be populated with the "TeamMember" of only the "Claims Department".

I would like to achieve this with 1 or 2 SharePoint lists due to easy editing due to turnover and easy training hand off from IT.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to stay away from InfoPath.

  • These are what are known as Cascading dropdowns. You can use SPServices or REST api to achieve this. REST api is recommended though. markrackley.net/2014/05/20/… – Akhoy Jul 26 '15 at 5:04
  • Where do you want to place the cascading dropdowns? In any list forms? or on some web part page through custom web parts? Please help me to help you... – Naveen Jul 27 '15 at 6:09
