  1. Add calculated column type "HTML"

    Add a calculated column type "HTML." This would allow for greater creativity and flexibility within lists, and allow for project status dashboards.

  2. Quick Search on new Sharepoint Lists MISSING

    "old" sharepoint lists have a wonderful quick search function of the entire list we use ALL THE TIME.

    New SharePoint lists do not. WE DO NOT WANT TO USE NEW LISTS UNTIL THIS QUICK SEARCH IS ENABLED

  4. Ability to lock columns in Datasheet view

    As a SPOL user I want the ability to lock column heading/columns while viewing a list in a Datasheet view. With the current functionality if you have a very long list of items, or many columns then the user can easily get lost.

  5. Print button for lists

    An option to add a print button to the menu would help improve useability as a common issue I've come across with lists is users wanting to be able to print easily

  6. 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.

  8. Graph SharePoint list data

    I use sharepoint lists data in combination with Tableau and Power BI to give graphs. SharePoint 365 you can only use Excel and it's not live and can't auto refresh. Having the ability to get graphs and pivot graphs onto a sharepoint page from a list would be an awesome feauture.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. Fix the issue of disappearing list items

    Fix the issue of list items disappearing and reappearing.

    We have an ongoing issue with list items randomly disappearing, not available in search, etc., only to have them reappear hours later or sometimes not at all. This makes things very inefficient for our project team, which relies heavily on SP lists to manage our work. It's been reported multiple times but MS keeps closing the issue as they can't recreate it. (Because it's random - duh).

  13. 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.

  14. Type as you find filter in modern list UI

    We need a "type as you find" filter on the modern list UI. Preferably one that covers all columns and one that is per column The drop down filter per column is actually quite useless if there's more than 5-10 unique entries in the column.

    Then it ought to be a "type as you find" form instead.

  15. Add minor versioning functionality to lists

    Lists only allow for major versions. Major versions signal that the information or data is "production-ready," but in lists, that is not always the case. For example, the default "Announcements" list that comes with SharePoint Online could easily involve the drafting of an announcement that isn't ready for prime-time, because it hasn't been reviewed and/or approved by another author. With minor versioning, SharePoint authors could keep the draft version from being seen and inadvertently consumed by site visitors until was ready for publishing, at which point it could be set as a major version.

  16. Discussion List Threading

    The new default look for discussion lists is beautiful, but we need to be able to easily see threaded replies. For example, if I'm replying to an existing reply, the only indication that it's in response to an existing reply is the note "In response to Sally Jenkin's post". It's not visually associated with the reply (not ordered underneath it, much less indented to see a series of replies). Threading would be tremendously beneficial. I've seen several forum posts that take you through changing the view to a standard list view, but that takes away from the clean design.

  17. Support Field level Permissions

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

  18. 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.

  19. Show the site name on Excel Online with the accessing user’s language

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Excel Online に表示されるサイト名をユーザーの言語設定に合わせて表示してほしい
    Show the site name on Excel Online with the accessing user’s language


    ■Description(内容):
    第 2 言語に設定している言語ユーザーにて Excel Online を表示した場合、画面左上に表示されるサイト名が第 2 言語のサイト名ではなく、既定の言語のサイト名で表示される場合がある。

    ブラウザーの画面を更新すると第 2 言語に設定している言語のサイト名で表示され、その後は第 2 言語に設定している言語のサイト名で表示される。

    以下は検証手順

    ※ 以下の手順は Internet Explorer の inPrivate ブラウズで検証し、サイト名を変更後、ブラウザーを開きなおし、再度サインインをしてから検証しています。
    1) SharePoint 管理センター から、既定の言語を英語で設定してクラシックのチームサイトを作成する
    2) [Site Settings] - [Language Settings] から第 2 言語を 日本語で設定する
    3) 日本語ユーザーにて [サイトの設定] - [タイトル、説明、ロゴ] からサイト名を変更する
    3) 日本語ユーザーにてサイトにアクセスし、日本語のサイト名で表示されることを確認後、ドキュメント ライブラリに Excel ファイルを保存する。
    4) Excel Online でファイルを開くと日本語のサイト名で表示される
    5)英語のユーザーにてサイト名を変更し、変更後のサイト名で表示されることを確認後、Excel Online でファイルを開くと変更前の一番最初のサイト名で表示される。
    6) 再度日本語のサイト名に変更し、Excel Online を開くと一番最初にサイトを作成した際の英語のサイト名で表示される
    ブラウザーを更新すると正常なサイト名が表示されるが、ユーザーが初めて Excel Online を開いた際に正常にサイトに表示されているサイト名が表示されることを希望します。

    When the user’s language is same as secondary language, and the user change Open Excel Online, the site name…
