Creating lists from Excel sheets

When you start moving "legacy" applications created using Excel spreadsheets in your company to a system-designed platform such as SharePoint, you may realize that you need to create a bunch of lists and fields for each spreadsheet.

It can take a lot of time and effort for your team and could discourage or slow down the digital transformation.

To help with this movement to SharePoint, Microsoft has designed a way to create a SharePoint list based on an Excel spreadsheet, facilitating this process.

When creating a list, you can select From Excel.
