  1. Freeze Column Headers

    Would love to see the ability to freeze column headers at the top of the page when a user scrolls through a long list.

    • Column totals missing in modern list views

      Column totals missing in modern list views.

      This is an often used function, and the workaround to set the list back to classic will only be a temporary solution.

      • Prioritize large list management in SharePoint Online

        Large list management has to become a priority. Even with the most thought out and careful planning, inevitably something will come up and you need to make a change to a list or library. Once that goes over 5,000 items, it becomes impossible to do anything management related to the list, which actually hinders it's use. Users can continually add files, but you can't do anything to help them.

        This has to be addressed in some fashion, whether it is allowing APIs like REST and CSOM to bypass this restriction so they can perform basic administrative operations or giving us…

          Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that the ability to add indexes to lists of any size is available to SharePoint Online customers as of March 2018. You can now go to “Indexed columns” in List or Library Settings page, and add indexes even if your list has more than 5,000 items. For up to 20,000 items, the indexing should be near instantaneous. For lists with more than 20,000 items, indexing will use a background process and may take some time, usually minutes, but possibly longer if there are a lot of items and if SharePoint is busy serving other requests. Similarly, you are also able to remove indexes that you no longer need.

          We are continuing to work on making larger lists work better, so we will keep this item open. Please don’t hesitate to send feedback if you are running into issues while managing your large lists, and…

        • Enable the ability to paste images directly into multi-line text boxs instead of just URLs

          Currently you need to paste a URL in a MLTB but if someone is looking to clip and paste a image from their PC, this become a pain. Can we please just paste directly into the MLTB?

          • Modern experience for Task lists

            Half our lists are not normal lists but task lists. Often both normal lists and task lists are combined in themed processes with lookups.

            It would be really great if the task lists can also switch to the modern experience. It is getting really annoying now to have a mixture of classic and modern experience within the same site/for a single process. Specially for the end user there is need in consistency. Also to introduce the modern experience properly it is much better when a total site can be changed at once and not only a few apps.

            • Remove the 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields

              There is currently a 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields. This restriction impedes ability to save Urls that might include hash values are long query strings. Some examples where this is really common are links to SSRS reports (with parameters) and Search urls that contain refinements.

              • Allow lookup columns brought up from different list into calculated columns

                Dear Microsoft, this limitation causes a huge impact in our organization - we have been trying to migrate from MS Access into Share Point due to the collaboration it brings, but the limitation of not being able to use "lookup columns" from other lists into "calculated columns" is pretty bad. It affects negatively our ability to compare and do calculation with values from different fields. The whole purpose of MS Access is to run these queries, but since MS shifted to Share Point we thought that was possible as it not. Please do what it takes to make this happen! …

                    SharePoint should support Field-Level permissions. It is very common to need the ability to show/hide field values depending on current user permissions

                        • Allow survey list owners and administrators to view the incomplete survey user names

                          Allow survey list owners and administrators to view the incomplete survey user names. When the survey went live, the count showing at overview.aspx under "Number of Responses:" doesn't match the actual number or responses shown in "all responses".

                          Is possible to give any view or option to owners of the list to check the incomplete survey user names.

                          It will helpful for all. Thanks

                          • Lookup on lists over 5,000

                            Lookup Columns that go to a list that contains more than 5000 items does not work even if that list is indexed. Indexing allows users to see items in the list in a normal view, but when trying to do a lookup to that list from another site or library, there is no filtering applied. It would be nice if some filtering could be applied to the lookup feature to help narrow the results shown in the lookup.

                                  • Unify the information between Exchange Online calendar and SharePoint Online calendar.

                                    *English follows Japanese

                                    ■件名: Exchange OnlineとSharePoint Onlineの予定表の連携について
                                    ■内容:
                                    現在、 Exchange Online の予定表を利用しているユーザーと SharePoint Online の予定表を利用しているユーザーがいる。
                                    そのため、Exchange Online の予定表とSharePoint Online の予定表を連携させて利用したい。

                                    また、クライアントのOutlookを介さずにOffice 365 内で利用できるように機能を改善してほしい。
                                    =====
                                    Unify the information between Exchange Online calendar and SharePoint Online calendar.

                                    Currently, we have multiple users who use the Exchange Online calendar and the SharePoint Online calendar each.
                                    Therefore, I would like to use Exchange Online calendar and SharePoint Online calendar in conjunction with each other for increased usability.

                                    I also hope the feature will improve to enable using within Office 365 without going through the client's Outlook.

                                    Thank you for your continued support.

                                    • Make Column formatting real easy and not with JSon

                                      Column formatting in SharePoint online.
                                      Why so complicated that you have to use Json.
                                      It doesn't fit in with the idea of modern pages and modern UI.
                                      Should be as simple as selecting a format....

                                      • Modern list experience: Fix filtering for Managed Metadata columns

                                        the Sharepoint modern list experience is great, but incorrect filtering implementation for Managed Metadata columns prevents us from moving on to this new look.
                                        Symptom: when creating a list Filter based on a "Managed Metadata" column, the behavior is as follows:
                                        if the term set on which the Managed Metadata column is based on, contains more than 20 items, the user will have the ability to filter only on the first 20 items via checkboxes. All items in the term set beyond the 20th will be unavailable for filtering. This is because there is no ability to provide a filtering…

                                        • Row Height in Modern List

                                          Modern list views do not render multi-line text fields correctly horizontally in that a lot of the text near the bottom of the field either can only be half seen or gets cut off completely. Please give users the ability to change the height of the rows just like we can with the width of the columns. What's the point of a multi-line text field if I can't read all of it?
