  4. Save modern list as template

    Please provide Microsoft supported feature for "Save as a template" with or without content for modern lists and modern sites. This feature was previously in 2007, 2010, 2013 and I believe 2016 via the Publishing feature. It seems to not be recommended any longer or error prone

  7. Please provide a bulk list loader that actually works

    When migrating large lists into an SPO site for the first time, or doing large-scale maintenance on a list (e.g. loading a new section into a data dictionary or glossary list) there is currently no tool available in Modern Lists to process a data upload like this. The current "Create a List from Excel" is crippled by a ludicrously low row-limit and offers no options to configure the throttling row-count. Neither does it offer an "append" option.
    Instead we are forced to rely on dodgy PowerAutomate scripts which have to be tailored to an individual list each time they are…

  8. Please enable Lookup columns to select multiple values as Choice columns do

    We used to have the option to select multiple values from a Lookup results drop-down, just as Choice columns can, but this seems to have been disabled in Modern Lists.

    Please reenable the multiple selection option for Modern List Lookup columns

  9. Enable Duplicate value suppression in a List view when there is no qualifying column visible

    If I have a List which has rows including a classification column and a detail column, and I have a view of the list which shows only the classification values, I should be able to choose to suppress duplicate classifications appearing when I have no qualifying detail, but it appears this is not possible.

    This annoying feature prevents a List from being filtered easily by a self-view which has only category/classification values in it. We have to make the categories/classifications a separate list. It also means I get filter values (from my separate list) which may have no details for…

  10. Add an option to filter Lookup column selections based on another column in the current list

    Please modify the Lookup Column definition to add a new configuration option, after the "In this column" option, and before the "Add a column" config, as follows:

    Filtered by:
    [name of another column in the current list as filter]
    + [optional name of a 2nd column to filter on]

    Where the + next level filter is specified, a dynamic (next+1) option should be offered automatically as soon as the next level filter field name is entered.

    The results displayed in the filtered drop-down lookup list should be filtered as AND(Filter1, Filter2, Filter3,...) where the filter values are (a) specified in…

  11. Reflect column formatting in Microsoft Lists Gallery View

    In Microsoft Lists, we can easily apply column formatting using conditional formatting or using JSON in Advanced mode which works successfully for the compact and list views. but I noticed that when switching the view to the gallery view, the column formatting is never applied!

    It would be great to be able to reflect the same formatting on the gallery view as well!

  14. Images aren’t displayed in expanded rich text in the modern UI

    クラシック UI に変更することなくモダン UI で画像を表示できるようにしてほしい。

    If you save an image to a multi-row (expanded rich text) column in a list, in the SharePoint modern UI, when you return to the entire list the image is not displayed.
    If you go back to it having saved it from the classic UI then it is shown correctly.
    Please make it possible to have these show without requiring you to switch to the classic UI.

  15. Easier way to manage alerts on lists

    Housekeeping alerts on list takes too long. You can go into Ste Settings and User Alerts but then have to go into each person listed (and we have 100s on some of our Team Sites) via a dropdown and click Update just to see whether there are any alerts for an individual and if there are which lists they are for. It would save so much time if when we have the list open that we want to review alerts for, there was a way to Manage all Alerts for that list (all I get is Set Alert and Manage…

  16. Please pop up a warning message when a user tries to bulk delete items in the folder

    I as an admin would like to prevent multiple items get deleted by mistake. It would be great if any warning pop-up will be prompted when someone tries to delete multiple items at once. This final warning message may prevent a mistake.

    When choosing options in a multiple choice column in a list, it is possible to search for specific items when only one is specified, but when multiple options are selected for an item, you cannot search by names of options, so please make this possible in this case, too.

    With SharePoint list and Excel association, I’m using PowerAutomate to update columns and custom property to change value in the cell automatically. However, the change won’t reflected in Excel for the web. I would like Excel for the web to support custom property and reflect value.
