  1. Way to disable details pane on a per list basis

    By using custom forms, be it javascript based or via PowerApps, one has the ability to put business logic in the data input (e.g. hide certain fields based on usercontext, enable validation of certain input, etc.).

    The details pane is handy, except for these situation, because it allows users to bypass all these valiations.

    Please allow for a way to disable this panel for certain lists so the data input doesn't get corrupted by wrong data input.

  2. Append-Only Comments field on a Modern UI list doesn't preserve a Modern UI list edit and view experience

    When adding an Append-Only comments field on a list with the Modern UI, changes the New, Edit and View form to the classic form experience. Removing the Append-Only Comments field, reverts the list back to a Modern UI list form experience.

    It would be good to incorporate the Modern Comments ability to a list item as a setting to enable Comments on the list items which behave like the modern Comments in SPO.

  3. Enable "Inviting a SharePoint Calendar to a meeting"

    We would like to be able to invite a Teams calendar to a meeting in outlook.
    This would enable us to easily maintain an updated team calendar of Team meetings/events as well as travel activities of different temamembers.

  4. SYNCHRONIZE CONTACT LIBRARY

    We've a Contact Library on Sharepoint, and it's synchronized with Outlook. We've also our smartphones (Apple and Android) synchronized with Outlook, but we saw that only Personal Contacts are synced.
    It'd be great to have also the Other Contacts synced.
    Regards

    Daniele

  5. Enable freezing the header rows/columns of Lists in SharePoint Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    リストの先頭の列名の行を固定し、リスト アイテムのみスクロールしたい

    Enable freezing the header rows/columns of Lists in SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のリストにて、先頭にある列名の行を固定し、リスト アイテムのみスクロールできるようにしたい。
    アイテム数が多いリストを確認する場合、スクロールすることで列名が隠れてしまい、確認しにくい。
    列名が固定されることでアイテムを確認しやすくなるため、列名がある先頭の行を固定し、アイテムのみスクロールできる機能の実装を要望します。

    I would like to freeze column headers at the top of the page so that users can scroll list items only.
    It is inconvenient when users scroll through a large amount of item because the column header is not frozen at the top.
    In order to make it much easier to view items in a list, please add the option to freeze the header rows/columns of Lists in SharePoint Online.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  6. Add filter by view and search to recycle bin

    We have thousands of documents in our recycle bin. I have no way of filtering them to those belonging to the specific view that I am searching for to recover deleted documents from. The only thing I can do with the gear is switch the view types. Please add filtering and search features to the recycle bin.

  7. Modern Experience - Respect Library Setting "Open in client application"

    When modern view is turned on and you click on the file name, it launches in Word Online. It does not respect the "Open in the client application."

  9. Allow us to control locking time for Office files

    *English follows Japanese

    Allow us to control locking time for Office files


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online 上の Office ファイルを Office クライアント アプリケーションで開き、終了した際に、何らかの理由で正常終了できなかった場合に、ファイルに対してロックがかかる。
    60 分もロックがかかるのは不便なため改善してほしい。

    We would like to see the feature to unlock or control locking time of Office files if files are locked when it unsuccessfully closed with some reason.

    It is too inconvenient to wait 60 min until the file is unlocked.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  10. List filter

    Better data mining for lists and libraries. An app to filter list data based on criteria and then select columns and rows based on the filters. Allow multiple selections for column and row.

  11. Re-establish Content Type for list items PLEASE

    What's happening? The Content Type drop-down menu suddenly disappeared from the NEW Item list dialog box! If we EDIT an item in Dialog box mode, the content type drop-down is available. My new client is VERY unhappy about being inable to select a content type (one of 11) to enter new data.

  12. Allow users with READ permissions to set their own default view

    Until recently users with Contribute and Read permissions could select their own default view of a list. That feature was removed in the last few weeks. On 10/24/2019 I submitted Ticket #:17267395, and was told that by design users must have EDIT or higher to set a personal default view. Please put this back the way it was. Many readers and contributors to a list really liked having their own default view and are upset that they lost it. At the same time, those users should not have Edit permissions that allow them to Add/Remove/Change entire columns and even delete…

  13. Add ability to grant permissions per columns for view lists of Custom lists

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online のカスタム リストのビュー一覧に列単位のアクセス権を付与する機能の追加要望

    Add ability to grant permissions per columns for view lists of Custom lists


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のカスタム リストのビュー一覧において、現状では列単位にアクセス権限を与えることができません。例えば特定の列のみ、 [ユーザー A] は閲覧が可能だが [ユーザー B] のみ閲覧は不可などの列単位のアクセス権限の設定ができれば、アイテムごとに権限を付与するよりも、より大きい単位での管理が可能になり、業務の効率化に繋がります。そのためこの機能の追加を要望いたします。

    In the current design, we are not able to grant permission for each column at view lists in SharePoint Online Custom lists.
    It will be great if we could grant permissions for a specific column, for example, [User A] can see the column while [User B] is not allowed to see it. We believe that it will improve the work efficiency rather than granting permissions just for each…

    We would like to save “workflow history” of each item from “Workflow Status” page for SharePoint Online workflow.

    We know there is a list of workflow history, but if I can save for each item, it would be more usable.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  15. Enable downloading list attachment files directly regardless the file extensions.

    *English follows Japanese
    Right-click on attachment file name
    ■Title(件名):
    リストの添付ファイルのダウンロードについて

    Enable downloading list attachment files directly regardless the file extensions.


    ■Description(内容):
    リストに添付したファイルの拡張子により、Office Online 上で開けず Office クライアントで開いてから [名前を付けて保存] をする必要があるため、工数がかかってしまう。
    ファイルの拡張子に関わらず、[添付ファイル名で右クリック] - [対象をファイルに保存] (IE11の場合) で Office ファイルをダウンロードできるようにしてほしい。

    たとえば、以下の拡張子が Office クライアントで開いてから [名前を付けて保存] をする必要がある
    ・xlsm
    ・xlsb

    We are aware that some file extension types (i.e. xlsm/ xlsb) cannot be opened on Office Online when we try to open attachment files on Lists. It requires us to open the attachments via Office Client first and click [Save As] button.

    For reducing workloads, we would like to be able to download attachment files by simply clicking…

  17. Pagination in Modern List View Formatting

    Self Explanatory: Pagination in Modern List View Formatting

    I have a Modern List in SharePoint Online where I have applied View formatting for displaying items. Now I'm trying to add pagination in the list with view formatting. But I am not sure whether this can be achieved?

    I would like to see the Pagination option while using View Formatting in Modern List.

  18. Format option to remove the comma from Number columns

    We assign clients a customer number and people around the business (and several systems) do not recognise these numbers if they conatin commas.

    It is currently impossible to remove the comma in a Sharepoint List Number column.

    I've seen users come up with enterprising workarounds using formulae to convert numbers in to text strings but all of these then stop the ability to filter or sort by the standard number methods (eg client 10 is listed before client 2,3,4 etc).

    This is staggering really - such a basic formatting option - I can't believe it's not been implemented already -…

  19. Drag & Drop for list items

    Drag and Drop:
    The list item attachment process is the cumbersome. There is already drag and drop capability within the document library- is it possible to extend this capability with list items? It would make a huge impact in our daily work.

    Microsoft Lists の詳細情報を確認できない状態でのリリースは管理者として懸念があるため、Microsoft Lists の機能を既定でオフにしたいと考えています。

    We would like to be able to enable or disable Lists features that are scheduled for release (using PowerShell etc.).
    Feature releases where the details are unconfirmed cause issues for administrators, so we would like to be able to disable Lists features by default.
