Add SharePoint Site from Parent Site Collection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts,

    This is my first post to the forum but have been using your published advices from long time and Thank you very much for the support.

    I now have a situation where I have a full fledged running SharePoint 2013 site at a url http://xxx.abc.gov.om/; this site contains Document Library, tasks list, and lots of other small/big applications. Recently I configured the Project Server 2013 under the same site collection and the url for my PWA site is http://xxx.abc.gov.om/pwa

    The project server is configured correctly and everything is working fine.

    We observed one issue in estimating the workload on a resources because the tasks gets assigned to resources either by projects in PWA or by the task list configured at parent site http://xxx.abc.gov.om/

    We want to track the work load on each resource and want to see all the tasks assigned to the resource. I found a way out of doing it by using option of "Add SharePoint Lists". Now the problem is that I can add the task list from any of the PWA subsite but I cannot see the option to add the task list available in the parent site at http://xxx.abc.gov.om/

    I cannot move the production site inside the PWA as it is already in production, can you please suggest some option by which I can add the task list in the parent site into the PWA option.

    any Help is appreciated

  • Hello,

    As you have seen, the task lists / sites have to exist in the PWA site collection to be able to add them to PWA. To use the out of the box "Add SharePoint Lists" you will need to move the sites to the PWA site collection. You can either move the site or just create a replica site on PWA and copy the task list data over to that. You could probably programmatically add the task list to PWA by automating the copying of the data to the site in the PWA site collection... Not ideal but the only option I know of.
