  1. Difference between Edge and Explorer

    I've been with both Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge and I notice that when pasting in multiple columns of information on Edge it'll all go to one cell block, but on Internet Explorer it spreads out like it should. I would try to make it more universal as with the Internet Explorer version.

  2. Allow lookup columns brought up from different list into calculated columns

    Dear Microsoft, this limitation causes a huge impact in our organization - we have been trying to migrate from MS Access into Share Point due to the collaboration it brings, but the limitation of not being able to use "lookup columns" from other lists into "calculated columns" is pretty bad. It affects negatively our ability to compare and do calculation with values from different fields. The whole purpose of MS Access is to run these queries, but since MS shifted to Share Point we thought that was possible as it not. Please do what it takes to make this happen! …

  4. 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."

  5. Automate populate Person field with [Me] value

    It would be helpful to be able to automatically populate a List Person field with the name of the user adding an item to a list. Option would need to allow for easily overriding the automatic entry.

  6. Enable the ability to paste images directly into multi-line text boxs instead of just URLs

    Currently you need to paste a URL in a MLTB but if someone is looking to clip and paste a image from their PC, this become a pain. Can we please just paste directly into the MLTB?

  8. Graphs and charts for SharePoint lists

    Make a set of charts and graphs available as App Parts to consume SharePoint list view. Bar, Line, Area, Pie, Donut and Gauges at least.

    It seems odd that a platform which is used by so many organisations to record data has to rely on external chart libraries such as Google or third party Apps to provide visualisation of that data. Should be built-in!

  10. Enable 'Export to Excel' on non-IE Browsers

    We can use the 'Export to Excel' functionality in lists and libraries in Internet Explorer, but it doesn't work in Chrome or other browsers, even though the ribbon button is enabled. Instead, we get errors that look something like this:

    WEB
    1
    https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/mysitename/vtibin/owssvr.dll?XMLDATA=1&List={BF80F884-1DDC-4B28-B088-4F8A60F410C2}&View={8A06B7A1-44A1-4082-88FB-A88899D69303}&RowLimit=0&RootFolder=%2fsites%2fmysitename%2fLists%2fmylistname

    Selection={BF80F884-1DDC-4B28-B088-4F8A60F410C2}-{8A06B7A1-44A1-4082-88FB-A88899D69303}
    EditWebPage=
    Formatting=None
    PreFormattedTextToColumns=True
    ConsecutiveDelimitersAsOne=True
    SingleBlockTextImport=False
    DisableDateRecognition=False
    DisableRedirections=False

    SharePointListName={BF80F884-1DDC-4B28-B088-4F8A60F410C2}
    RootFolder=/sites/mysitename/Lists/mylistname

    As I understand it, this is because the functionality uses ActiveX. However, in this modern world we know that people are using different browsers very frequently. This should work in all browsers or at least fall back to a CSV…

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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
