Unable to Create a List from another Team or site

Muhammad Noman Sohail 21 Reputation points

In a Team site, I have created a List in Team or site in SharePoint Online.

Since there is no option for List to “Save as template”, I want to use the same list in another Team or site using > Site Content > New > List > From existing list

Earlier two weeks back, I had created “List” using Team or site that was showing in the list of Team or site. But unable to find previous Team site under “Select a Team or site”. I am the owner of both Team or site

Clue: Whenever I create a List in Team or site that disappears “From existing list”

Am I missing something?

    Hi @Muhammad Noman Sohail ,
    Click "follow" the shrepoint site from which you want to copy the list. Then refresh the site which you want to create a new list, and you will find that the site you just followed appears under "Select a Team or site" .
    If you are the person who created the site – it automatically makes you follow it. If you were not the person who created a site, just click the Follow button in the upper-right-hand corner of the site(as shown below).

    In addition,“Save List as Template” is missing in SharePoint Online modern sites. But you can use PowerShell to fix it.
    If you need, you can refer to this link: https://www.sharepointdiary.com/2017/08/sharepoint-online-save-list-as-template-missing.html
