SharePoint 365 Questions

Hello,

I have created a SharePoint List where information will entered primarily via mobile devices by employees. Based on a "Yes" condition in one of the fields, I want to send an email to the employees Supervisor (which would be a lookup based on the employee). Because mobile devices do not utilize the lookup function, do I need to set a rule that identifies the Supervisor once the record updates from the mobile device? I did utilize rules on the SharePoint desktop version previously; however, information was not entered via mobile devices but directly on the desktop.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi @FlinnRandalJ-5432
Per my test, people could receive email when you enter information by mobile, the feature works on mobile too, you could operate just like on the desktop.

Yes, the email function does work. My real question is relative to the "Lookup" function on the mobile device. It appears lookup is not available.

Thanks

Hi @FlinnRandalJ-5432
Sorry, I could not get you clearly, what "Lookup" function do you mean, is it "look up" column or something else?

Hello @YiLu-MSFT

I have a list called "Employees" and another list called "Work Performed". I wanted to have an "employee name" field in the Work Performed that was a lookup from the Employees list. At this point, I am using a Choice field in the Work Performed list. This makes updates and changes to the employees more difficult. I know this is available via the desktop version but it appears not available via mobile devices.

Is that accurate; and, if so is there a work around?

Thanks
