Lookup data from a list on another site
Need the ability to add a lookup column on a list in one site that pull data from a list in another site. There are paid plugins that do this, they call it "cross site lookup", but this should be available by default in office 365 sharepoint.

In an internal developed dynamic site environment with multiple sites, cross site lookup would dramatically enhance utility of data sets developed by individual groups within an organisation and enhance use of SP for info sharing and collaboration

Ditto! On our internally hosted SharePoint, i can create a list on the parent site, and lookup values from other lists created on the sub-sites. This functionality is not there on the online version of SharePoint. Really frustrating.

Hey, yes, please, it would be great to be able to choose lookup to another SharePoint site, e.g. in a project list on site A I could add a column which connects to lookup list of "Vendors" on site B. Please! :-)
I agree. This would be very useful and is a requirement we currently have.
