I'm currently looking at how make a task list templated, that all works fine and shows up as an app in the Add Apps area, however in the Task List I want to template there are columns where the content is a reference to another list on the site.

enter image description here

Is there a way to template a collection of lists as part of one application and maintain those relations?

The task list would be created on the same tenant and would be a on a subsite.

  • Where are you creating the new task list using template? In same SharePoint site?tenant where the referenced list is added? or in different site? Commented Sep 3, 2019 at 11:00

Unfortunatly lookup list items have to be redone when using a template. The template will not hold on to the relationships between the list items. You will hve to delete the lookup values and re-enter them each time you use the template.
