Here is my scenario.
We're using SharePoint for project management, so I have a List of tasks that needs to be performed and another list containing elements for when people have worked on the tasks. That is, whenever a person has spent some hours on a task he must add an element
to the second list specifying when he did the work, who did the work, how long he worked on it and which task he worked on.
In a scenario where there are alot of tasks on the Tasklist it becomes very tedious to find the task in a dropdown menu on the NewItem form of the second list. Therefore I would like to add a column to the TaskList containing a link for each task so
that when you click Task1's link you will be directed to the NewItem form of the second list with the Task field in the NewItem form set to Task1.
My original idea was to use the url of the NewItem form to specify the value of one of it's fields such as:
If that makes any sense. But I haven't been able to find any way to do this.
Does anyone have any idea of how I can make a link in the TaskList to redirect me to the NewItem form of the second list with a field value set based upon which link is clicked?
