When you need a consistent and reliable approach to creating similar lists, you can create one from an existing list. When you do this, the entire list structure is copied, including views, formatting, and columns. However, the actual content of the original list isn't copied.
You can create lists in Microsoft SharePoint, the Lists app in Microsoft 365, or Teams. Learn to get started with Lists in Microsoft Teams.
The following steps use the modern Microsoft 365 experience. Sites shown are lists from an example site.
From the Lists app in Microsoft 365, select +New list or from your site's home page, select + New > List.
On the Create a list page, select From existing list.
Select the site that has the existing list, select the list and then Next.
Enter the name for the new list, and if you want add an optional description.
Note: If you want the new list to appear in the site navigation, check the box Show in site navigation.
