The Cascading LookApp field enables you to turn SharePoint Lookup columns into "Super Lookup" columns that include the following additional capabilities:
- Cross-site Lookups – Unlike the out-of-the-box Lookup columns, with Cascading LookApp you can now create a lookup to remote lists, which are located in various sites.
- Cascaded Lookups – Who isn’t familiar with this SharePoint limitation?? Now you can easily filter you Lookup fields by other field on the same form, such as in the most common scenario: Region > Country > City.
- Filter Lookup by view – When you create a Lookup field, you can have it filtered by a selected view of the referenced list (unlike the out-of-the-box Lookup field that always displays all items from the looked-up list.
- Quickly created new items in the looked-up list – you can now create new items in the looked-up list, directly from the New/Edit form of your current edited item. No need to close that form and go to the Looked-up list – save time!!
