I have a requirement where a List needs several Content Types, each of which will inherit some standard columns from a parent content type:
e.g. these are the content types and fields:
ParentConentType: Make, Model, SerialNumber
In this example, if I create a new PCContentType, I will be presented with a form containing fields: Make, Model, SerialNumber and HasExternalKeyboard. If I create a new TillContentType, I will be presented with a form containing fields: Make, Model, SerialNumber
So far, all good. What I need though is the Make and Model to be different lookup lists for PCContentType and TillContentType.
The ParentContentType can have Make and Model fields set as lookups on large lists containing all the possible values for Make and Model.
If I create the fields at child content type level, then they won't have the same column name (which will make it hard to show this info in views).
So what are my options?
2) something I don't know about yet to allow the child content type to re-define the lookup
