  1. Enable more editing options for Rich Text in 'Multiple Lines of Text' List Column

    For 'Multiple Lines of Text' List Column, we are having a lot of editing options when it's set to the 'Enhanced Rich Text' type. In comparison, there are only a few options when it's set to 'Rich Text' type, and we even have to start with HTML format of texting. It'll be really nice if we could have a more user friendly interface and more options for the 'Rich Text' type as well.

  5. Add ability to convert a column in a custom list from single-line text to a user or group column

    SharePoint Online カスタム リストの列を、1 行テキストからユーザーまたはグループ列に変更できる機能を追加してほしい。
    Add ability to convert a column in a custom list from single-line text to a user or group column


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online カスタム リストの列を、"1 行テキスト" から "ユーザーまたはグループ" に変更したいが、現在の機能においては列の編集の対象項目の中に "ユーザーまたはグループ列" が無いため、変更ができない状況です。
    列の編集の対象項目が増えると利便性が高くなるため、機能の拡充を希望します。

    I want to convert a column in a SharePoint Online custom list from “single-line text” to “user or group”, but at present there is no “convert to user or group” option among the editing items for columns, so it cannot be done.
    It would be more convenient if there were more editing options for columns, so please add this.

  6. Ability to limit sharing of sharepoint list to a specific custom view

    Currently, when a list is shared, the shared user can view ALL the different views created for the list.

    It would be great if the sharing capabilities can be limit to a specific view(s).

    For example:

    A sharepoint list consist of all IT assets by department (Accounting, Operations & Construction). Site owner creates a custom view for the Accounting department that list only the IT assets that belongs to the them. Should have the ability to share this view only.

  7. Smart Date Column Filter

    Can we please get better filtering options when selecting date columns. Just the basics really. Filter by month/year heirarchy without having to add calculated columns just to separate these out.

    Users find it confusing to have to go to a "Month & Year" column to easily filter for dates in October 2019 instead of what every other system does which is provide this functionality build into the date column.

  8. Inherited View Details

    We use Lists to manage matters assigned to each member of a team.

    Each Team Member's default view filters the list down to only those matters assigned to them.

    There is another view that is the same in every respect apart from the absence of this filter - ie, it shows everyone's matters.

    When we add a new column to the List generally, if we want it visible in one of those views we will want it visible in the other view as well.

    Similarly, we want those views to be as visually similar and familiar as possible.

    It would…

  9. Edit in grid view when column is grouped by

    Actually it is impossible to edit in grid view when a list is "Grouped by" in a column.
    It could be so productive to be able to edit in grid view while the grouped by.
    Thanks for the help !

  10. SubSites cannot lookup list in Parent Site

    Frustrating that i can do this in on our internally hosted Sharepoint but not the online version.

    I have a list on my parent site that needs to be referenced on various subsites. It appears that this cannot be done using SharePoint online. This is really frustrating and means duplication and maintenance of two copies of the list.

    Please port this functionality across to sharepoint online

  12. Enhance SharePoint Online's list functions

    Enhance SharePoint Online's list functions


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online リストにおいて、特定の列にて登録された内容を受けて別の列の選択肢を絞り込むという機能を使用したいが、現時点においてそのような機能の提供がされていない状況です。
    希望としては、自分の名前を入力すると連動してリーダーの名前が自動で表示されたり、もしくは所属部署を選択すると所属する人がプルダウン リストの一覧に出るようにしたいです。
    しかしながら、現段階で上記の運用を実現しようとすると、特定のユーザーを指定した際に別のユーザーを別の列で表示させる必要があり、現状では二度入力が必要となってしまい、工数がかかってしまいます。
    Excel クライアントでは上記動作の実現が可能であり、SharePoint Online でも上述の動作が実現できれば大幅に工数を削減でき利便性向上が見込まれるため、機能拡充を希望します。

    Currently there is no list function in SharePoint Online which narrows options down based on the content registered in certain columns.
    I would like functions so that, for example, entering one's name would automatically display their leader's name, or entering one's department would fill up a list with the members who belong.
    There is a way of realizing the above right now. But it would take some extra work as, when certain users are specified in certain…

  13. First Release tenants modern experience list built-in auto-detect JSLink stopped working

    If we had a list that had a column with a custom JSLink, the modern list experience would detect it and fall back to classic new/view/edit item forms.
    In first release as of 2 weeks ago that stopped working and it will now open the item panel on the right.

    Please bring back the auto-detect feature and fall back to classic on these lists like before.

    Feature is described here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/modern-experience-customizations-customize-lists-and-libraries#when-does-the-built-in-auto-detect-automatically-switch-rendering-back-to-classic

    Opened a support ticket but support said to report issues on first-release in a user voice, not in a support ticket.
    Hope this is the right place.

  14. Please give an option to remove "See More" in Announcements.

    SharePoint Online (Modern List)
    Please give an option to REMOVE the "See More" selector for Announcements.

    A lot of our users to do not notice the 'See More' button, so only read the first few lines of an Announcement body text.

    Example:

    Body

    Ex eum modus euismod, magna legendos qui et, sed feugiat adipisci eu. Vel odio iisque et. Mei te pericula molestiae mnesarchum. Eos te erant nonumy

  15. edit/new FORMs in lists with lookup columns don't display foreign related columns

    new/edit FORMs should show and update columns linked to related foreign data as users select values in the lookup field

    for instance a teachers list with a lookup column for their Dept ID and related Dept Title. As one goes to add a teacher, new form should display the Dept ID lookup column and Dept Title AS WELL and as user chooses a Dept ID and leave the field to another, update the related displlay-only Dept Title column with correspondent data of the chosen Dept ID.

  20. Working with Lookup Columns to lists that preside in another site

    My challenge! I am working with SharePoint Online. I have list A in a sub site which has lookup columns to 2 other lists B and C which are in different sites. These lookup columns are site columns and for completeness all sites are in he same site collection.

    There are various now defunct SharePoint 2010 workflows that ran, sending out emails to and updating values, where the email names were pulled off the master lists B and C from list A.

    I am in the process of re-producing the functionality using Power Automate and new PowerApps forms.
