I am here to get your advise and opinion. As well as the Pro's and Con's for each option you suggest.
A custom list within SharePoint allows you to create a list whereby you can generate / design a form to collect certain data. The custom list also allows you to enable the Content Type which means you can create different forms by sharing the same column names.
For example: I got 5 paper forms (Absence Request, Holiday Request etc.) which I like to implement into SharePoint to safe paper but as well as have a better process / structure.
Here we have 2 options:
1) either we create 5 different custom lists
2) or we enable content type and create 5 different types within 1 custom list.
What is the catch / problem?!
I am still a newbie with SP and still learn new stuff as going along :) and I came across an article about the 5.000 limit threshold in SharePoint!
What is your opinion about such implementation: should I stick one custom list per form (individually) or rather have all forms within ONE custom list.?!
Will this cause any issues in the future ?! I am in planning things ahead and don't want to regret this after a while.
