The SharePoint Cascading Lookup Plus Field type is a new lookup field type that brings added capabilities that implementers found lacking in out of the box SharePoint Lookup fields: Cascading fields ("master-details"); Cross-site lookups; Filtered lookups; Dual (two-way) lookup

With SharePoint Cascading Lookup Plus Field you can:

  • Create cascading fields
  • Easily filter field values by other fields in the same List. Example: Want to display "Region", "Country" and "City" fields, where each one filters the next field?
  • Create a two-way connection between lists
    By using this feature you finally can implement a true relational model in SharePoint (yes – just like in "normal" database applications!).
  • The SharePoint Cascading Lookup Plus field enables you to create "dual lookup" field. In other words, when you create a lookup from one list to another, a reverse lookup is automatically created. For example: when you create a lookup field in the “Orders” list that connects each order to a customer in the “Customers” list (see below), a reverse lookup will automatically be created in the customers list.

Lots of options, 3 in 1 product!

This is a great product that really combines three major features that can be useful to any SharePoint implementation. You can do cascading columns, two-way lookups for order entry systems and simple cross-site lookups all from the same product. The skins are a plus, and there are a ton of options when you configure your lists with this field type. This product receives 4 stars though for the lack of documentation and the problems encountered when using site templates. If these two issues are addressed, then it easily becomes a 5 star product.

SOX Framework optimized through cascading lookups

I think the product brings useful extra functionality to sharepoint. Once you have started using it to optimize sites you cannot live without.

Product Reviews

Pros
Enhanced the user experience as the lookup funcionality provided a good overview between the mani lists holding information.
The filter option through views makes it easier to find the relevant items to link.
Cons
Lookups costs power and can quickly slow down the speed on the sharepoint site.
