We have multiple teams that are working on separate aspects of the same project. Each team has their own sub-page of the project.

What I wanted to be able to do is to have one master Action Item/Issues log for the entire project, then each sub-page could see that list and add to it or update it as needed.

However, when I go into the sub-pages, SharePoint has the ability for me to create a new Issues Log for that page, but I can't seem to pull in or link to an existing one.

Is this possible?

As per my understanding (correct me if I am wrong) you want to add a list view web-part on a page. for this follow below steps:

  1. Navigate to sub-page and click on Edit page option from Settings (Gear icon a t the top of your page).

  2. Click on Add a Web Part

  3. Select the required list from the Apps categories.

  4. Click on Add button.

  5. Save the page.

Please refer below image to select the list from categories:

  • Unless I am misunderstanding your response, I think it's different. So, here is what I was trying to do: Create a master page with two sub-pages for each of the teams. On the master page, create an issues log For each of the sub-pages, have a filtered view of that master issues log for that team (this I was just going to do via a filter on a specific field). What I'm struggling with, is that I can't seem to see the Issues Log that was created for the Master Site when I go to edit the sub-site.

  • You cannot add the list from parent site to subsite as a list web part using SharePoint default capabilities. Mar 5, 2020 at 15:51
