MC297558: Modern lookup columns

This new feature, Lookup columns, will allow you to connect a list to a column from another list you have on your site. Once connected, you can easily “lookup” other information and include this in your new list. This makes it easy to maintain team-level, centralized lists that contain information you use repeatedly. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82156.

Microsoft Lists: Improved lookup fields

Create lookup fields in modern list UI – no settings page required! This means you can program a list item (column) to ‘lookup’ another set of data of pre-populated, managed choices.
