  1. Add “assessment setting” to the custom list in Communication Sites

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):コミュニケーション サイトのカスタム リストに [評価の設定] 項目の追加を希望します。
    Add “assessment setting” to the custom list in Communication Sites


    ■Description(内容):
    プライベート サイト コレクションや Office 365 グループ サイトでは、カスタム リストにおいて [評価の設定] より "いいね!" の機能の有効化が可能であるが、コミュニケーション サイトでは [評価の設定] 項目自体が表示されず有効化が出来ない状況。
    コミュニケーション サイトにおいても "いいね!" を使用するため、[評価の設定] 項目の追加を希望します。

    For Private site collections and Office 365 group sites, we can activate the function "Like" from “assessment setting” in the custom list, however, it is not possible to activate “Like” function in Communication Sites because the item “assessment setting” is not displayed on the communication sites.
    Therefore, it will be great that the “assessment settings” will be added to the custom…

  2. Enable copying items in the list more easily

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): リストの個々のアイテムを簡単にコピーしたい
    Enable copying items in the list more easily


    ■Description(内容)
    リスト内のアイテムを簡単にコピーできるような機能の実装を希望します。
    現在個々のアイテムをコピーしようとすると、クイック編集やコンテンツと構造、テンプレート等になる。
    項目数が多い場合や、管理者以外が編集する場合等は対応に苦慮するため、簡単にアイテムのみをコピーする機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, I am aware that we have to use the feature of Quick edit, Content and structure or templates to copy each item in the list because the feature to copy each item directly is not available. It might be hard to handle if there are many items to be copied or when editing by non-administrators.
    In order to improve the usability, I hope the feature will be implemented to copy each item easier without using other features.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  3. Improve the feature to display the borders of the table properly in the modern UI.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    モダンUIのカスタム リストにおいて、複数行テキストに挿入した表の罫線を表示させる機能について

    Improve the feature to display the borders of the table properly in the modern UI.


    ■Description(内容)
    カスタム リストの列に複数行テキスト形式の列を作成し、その列に表を挿入した際に、クラッシック表示では表の罫線が表示されるが、モダン表示だと表の罫線が表示されない。
    表の機能として、罫線の表示がないと大変見にくいため、モダン表示のカスタムリストにおいても、列内で表の罫線が表示されるように機能拡充を希望します。

    I am aware of that when I created multiline texts on the columns of custom lists and inserted the table into the custom list, the borders of the table were not displayed in modern UI despite the table borders were displayed in the Classic UI.
    It is hard to see the table without borders, so I hope the feature will be improved to display the borders even in the modern UI.

    Thank you for your…

  4. Show document library and list descriptions in Modern UI

    When creating a list or document library one of the primary fields to enter is the description. In classic UI this used to be shown above the view when users navigated to the library. The only place I can see the description being displayed under Modern UI is in the library settings. The description is a critical piece of information in assisting users with knowing the purpose and intended usage of the library/list. Can we please have it back or some other way of providing similar custom usage or information to the user on the primary UI into a list…

  6. Sort order with numbers is wrong

    I have files with a number at beginning in filename.
    The sort-order in Library is:
    1
    11
    12
    2
    3

    Correct would be:
    1
    2
    3
    11
    12

    Please fix that. Thank you

  7. Document set views

    Allow Views within Document Sets. Currently you don't appear to be able to add customer views inside document set folders.
    Allow views to permeate the Document Set structure, for enhanced sorting.

  8. Integrate SharePoint metadata and views with Windows Explorer

    I still monitor this suggestion ..

    https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/7196959-integrate-sharepoint-metadata-views-with-windows
    .. and once a month without fail someone is commenting saying how fundamental and necessary this is. Please reconsider as this is a major roadblock in our adoption and causes us to have to go against Microsoft best practice and use folders in a SharePoint library to organise our data so we can sync locally.

  10. Shorten Default "Files" URL from "Shared%20Documents" to "Docs"

    This suggestion affects SharePoint Document Libraries and Microsoft Teams...

    The URL for the default "Documents" document library in SharePoint is "Shared Documents", which in a URL is actually "Shared%20Documents" as spaces cannot exist in URLs and must be handled with the %20 character substitution.

    This means that instead of being able to send a nice clean human readable URL to a file like:
    https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Marketing/Docs/Collateral/design.docx

    We end up with:
    https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Marketing/Shared%20Documents/Collateral/design.docx

    There are two (2) issues here:
    1. Confusing "%20"
    2. Unnecessary added length "%20Shared" can all be eliminated

    This is confusing for users.

    I would even go so far as to…

  12. View in File Explorer for Edge

    The "View in File Explorer" library menu item found only in Internet Explorer was very useful. However, consistent with Microsoft guidance, I've lately been using Edge for most of my work. Is there any chance that the same item could be allowed in Edge? Thanks.

  14. Prevent the garbled characters for the folder/files name via Browser View.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):圧縮 zip フォルダーをドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードした場合に、ブラウザーから確認した際のファイル名文字化けについて

    Prevent the garbled characters for the folder/files name via Browser View.


    ■Description(内容):
    Windows 10および Windows 7 のどちらにおいても、圧縮 zip フォルダーをドキュメント ライブラリにアップロードし、ブラウザーから確認を行うと該当フォルダー内のファイル名文字化けが起きています。そのため、この文字化けが回避できる機能の追加を希望します。​

    We recognized that the file name in the zip folder is garbled when uploading the compressed zip folder to the Document Library and confirming them by the browser (It occurs for Windows 10 and Windows 7). Because of this event, the users have a difficulty in finding the right file smoothly.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved to prevent the garbled characters regardless of single/double byte characters as soon as possible.

  15. Modern filters dont show all used metadata values in the list/library

    Modern filters don't show all 'used' metadata values in the list/library, metadata filter values are only shown if they appear on the first page.

    Simply put if you have items not shown on the first page, their associated metadata values will not show in the filters meaning users wont even know they exist.

    We cant use Modern views because of this, users keep reporting that they cant find items they know exist. its a total white wash...

  17. Column width resizng should be more discoverable

    Column width resizng in modern doc lib should be made more discoverable. Today you can resize by hovering the cursor between column headings and drag the divider. however the divider is not visible at all unless you hover over. would be great to make it light grey or something.

  20. Enable deleting the version history for the files at once in SharePoint Document Library.

    ■Description(内容):
    現時点での SharePoint Online の機能ではドキュメント ライブラリなどに保存されているファイルのバージョン履歴はファイル毎でしか削除を行うことできない。
    また、バージョン履歴の保持数を保持しているバージョン数よりも少ないバージョンに設定を変更しても、アイテムの編集を行わない限り古いバージョンが保持されたままの状態となる。
    作成されているバージョンをサイト単位またはライブラリ単位で一括削除や一括でバージョン履歴の保持数を指定した値に変更する機能の追加を希望いたします。
    Currently, we can only delete the version history of files stored in Document Library by each file.
    Also, the old version will be retained unless we edit the items when we change the setting of the preservation numbers of version history to less than we preserved.

    Therefore, we hope to add the feature that can be bulk deleted versions by each site or library or change the preservation number of version history to the…
