  2. list grouping

    Would like ability to hide the column title when modern list grouped by column. For instance, if I have 3 items in the "Widget A" column, and group by that column, the results will return like:

    Widget A: yes
    Widget A: no
    Widget A: maybe

    It would be helpful to be able to remove the column title "Widget A" from the grouping results for a cleaner appearance. There were ways around this in Classic experience, but not in Modern.

  3. Remove the Indication for newly uploaded/created item in Sharepoint.

    Remove the indication for newly uploaded file in MS Teams.
    A half star like indication which is displayed on the top left corner of the file name which indicated that the file is newly uploaded must be removed.

    Or is there any way to remove it.

  4. Lists in read only mode: ability to comment on items

    To be able able to comment on an item in a list from MS Lists you need to have a read AND write access. It's crucial for our team to be able to add a comment with a read only access. This is the only way to preserve the integrity of a list shared with multiple users.

  5. restrict a view the visitors group in a a SharePoint list based on value in a specific column

    Example: I have a SharePoint list that will have some lines that are indicated in a column if confidential or not, and wished that the visitors could see the list, except the lines indicated as confidential.

  6. Archive List Entry Option Instead of Just Delete

    Sometimes we need to be able to retrieve a list entry that had been previously deleted. It would be great if we could just archive an entry and unarchive it when we want it active in the list again.

  7. Add ability to filter the Calendar view (by status, category, assigned, etc.)

    Please add the ability to filter by other columns in the Calendar view of a list and also see all the columns in the Details pane. The calendar view is great, but it's really difficult to use as an editorial calendar (for example) when you can't filter the calendar by status, topic, category, assigned to and other common editorial fields. We want to be able to see everything by month, but then filter down to see what's planned in a specific category.

    It's also very annoying that in the Calendar view, when you click on an item, the details for…

  10. hide rename column

    As a corporate site on SP 2019, there are a lot of scenarios where we will not want our users to be able to change list column display name either using quick edit or directly on the list or from list settings. There is no provision in specific permission as such. We can try alternative workaround based on java script however that has risk of being overwritten with next update. Kindly introduce a permission to either hide rename column or not allowing users to change column display name in SP 2019. This is particularly in Modern view.

    If you create a list with more than 12 reference columns, they cannot be displayed on the PowerApps screen.
    The currently upper limit on the number reference columns and list fields is too low for use in large scale companies, so please raise it.

  12. Add color coding and Start/End Date to Microsoft Lists Calendar View

    Being able to color code is crucial when your looking at a shared calendar with multiple projects amongst a team. Additionally being able to designate a start and end date so a project sans over multiple days is a great way to see how many priorities you have going on at once.

    For Lists to be functional for a team, these are two crucial must haves!

  13. Allow to set value for external field on modern experience

    We have a large number files in document library in classic site collection. The library has external fields. And we use Quick Parts, so the extended properties of external field can be inserted into documents.
    Now we want to switch to modern site experience, however we lose the capability to set value for external value.

  14. Enable filter and sort options for all List columns

    In the modern list views, there is no consistency between view columns about whether the column can be used for filter and/or sort operations - some can, some (apparently) can't, and there seems to be no obvious reason why or way to fix it.

    Please make filter and sort (asc/desc) options available in the column drop downs for all columns in a List view..

  15. SharePoint Online list search results is missing "Edit" button in the top or context menu for selected items

    SharePoint Online list search results is missing "Edit" button in the top or context menu for selected items. It was there before and did a great job for our business. I called Microsoft support and was told it was by design. I would like it be added back.

  16. “My Lists” text in Lists storage locations

    “My Lists” text in Lists storage locations


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Lists から新規リストを作成した際、保存先をマイリスト(OneDrive for Business)かSharePoint サイトか選択できるようになっておりますが、「マイリスト」という表記では保存先が、OneDrive for Business であることがわかりにくいと感じます。

    保存先が明確に判断できるような表記に変更することで、今後の運用に沿った適切な保存先にリストを保管・管理ができるようになると考えます。

    When creating a new list from Microsoft Lists, you can choose from ‘My Lists’ (OneDrive for Business or a SharePoint site, but it is not clear that ‘My Lists’ refers to OneDrive for Business.

    Please change this so it is easier to understand what location it refers to, so people can more smoothly manage their list storage locations.

  17. Calendar View New Item Date

    Calendar view for a list:

    When creating a new item in calendar view, automatically populate the date using the day that was selected for new item. Add column option for date selected in calendar view.

    This would make the calendar view much more user friendly for new item entry.

  18. Customise Column Name According to View

    It would be fantastic to be able to override the column display name on certain views saved in SharePoint.

    Use Case:
    I have a SharePoint list that contains a single column called Deadline that's value remains the same no matter what kind of list item it is, however its column definition might change depending on the kind of list item it is.

    Example:
    Say you had a view that showed you only the relevant columns required for an EDM task and a view that showed you only the relevant columns required for a Print task – however, both the views…

  19. Custom Date Formats

    Currently, as far as I can tell, there are only two ways to define how a date will appear in SharePoint lists, as Standard or Friendly.

    There really should be way more flexibility on how a date appears in SharePoint lists, like there is with Cell Formatting in Excel.

    Example: 05-12-2021
    Custom Format: DD-MMM-YY
    Result: 05-Dec-21
