Multiple hierarchies sharing same children

Is there a way that you can assign multiple parents for a list member? Or when you need to build an alternate hierarchy sharing the same children of primary hierarchy, you have to create a new 'child-list'? Thanks.

Unfortunately, you have to have another "clone" child list and then link the two lists later using a formatted line item set the original list

 

You can use FINDITEM(original list, codes of the clone list) to automaticall match them

What's annoying is that I have to create a text property on the original list for the FINDITEM to work.

When you create both lists, can have a formatted line item of list 2 against list 1 and vica vera, so you can avoid having text properties, but you do need formatted line items to march each list
