Newly added items are now coming in master list dropdown in sharepoint online. I have dropdown named Hospitals which is a lookup column from Hospital list. Now I have added new items in lookup/child but these are not appearing in master list dropdown.

This is a delay problem. You added an item to the source list, but the target list (lookup column) is not updated immediately. Please refresh the page and wait for a few minutes for it to be displayed automatically.

  • We are facing this issue in one of our site which is converted to classic for some reason. Newly added item is not showing in target list.

  • Only this one site collection has encountered this problem, right? You try to delete the newly created item before converting to classic, will this problem occur after re-creation?
