  1. Row Height in Modern List

    Modern list views do not render multi-line text fields correctly horizontally in that a lot of the text near the bottom of the field either can only be half seen or gets cut off completely. Please give users the ability to change the height of the rows just like we can with the width of the columns. What's the point of a multi-line text field if I can't read all of it?

  2. Enable hiding subtasks and displaying only the main task in the Task List by the default.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名: タスク リストにおいて、既定でサブ タスクを非表示にしたい。
    ■内容:
    タスク リストの利用において、メイン タスクのサブ タスクとして作成するべきところで、ユーザーがサブ タスクのサブとしてタスクを作成してしまことがある。
    タスク リストは既定でサブ タスクが表示される動作の為、サブタスクのしてにの下に並べるように表示させようとして誤ってサブタスクを作成している可能性がある。
    既定でサブ タスクを非表示であれば、ユーザーの誤操作を防ぐことができる可能性がある。

    既定でサブ タスクを非表示とし、メイン タスクのみを表示できるようにしてほしい。

    =====
    Enable hiding subtasks and displaying only the main task in the Task List by the default.

    I am concerned about the user is creating tasks as a sub task of subtasks in the case of that the users are supposed to create as a subtask of the main task when using the task list. Since the subtasks are currently displayed in the task list, there is a possibility of erroneously creating a subtask when trying to display it…

  3. Enable automatically displaying full-text of the "Multiline Text" column on the list item screen for Custom List via modern UI.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名: カスタム リストの新 UI にて、リスト アイテム画面の "複数行テキスト" 列の表示を自動的に全文表示したい。
    ■内容:
    カスタム リストの新 UI にて、リスト アイテム画面を表示した際、 "複数行テキスト" 列の内容が [すべて表示する] をクリックしないと全文表示されない。
    そのため、リスト アイテム画面を表示した際に内容がすぐに確認できず、非常に不便である。

    従来の UI もいつまで利用可能か未定のため、カスタム リストの新 UI にて、リスト アイテム画面の "複数行テキスト" 列の表示を自動的に全文表示できるように機能の改善を要望します。

    Enable automatically displaying full-text of the "Multiline Text" column on the list item screen for Custom List via modern UI.

    I am aware of that the full text will not be displayed unless the content of the "Multiline Text" column is clicked "Show all" when displaying the list item screen in the new UI of the custom list by default. As a result, the user feels very inconvenient…

  7. Enable current user filter to new list and modern page

    In classic experience, we can add "current user" filter and link it to a web part (i.e. list itself or on a page where we can add the list).

    To be able to use the new experience, I need to have this option available.

  8. Provide the increased the limit on the number of characters for the "URL" column of the Linked Apps.

    I have noticed that the limit of the number of characters in the "URL" column of the Link application sets 255 characters by default. However, if the file or folder name is Japanese (double-byte), the URL becomes longer and easily exceeds the limit of the number of characters when registering the file in the Document Library as a Link destination. Therefore, I hope the feature will be increasing the limitation for the number of characters in "URL" column as soon as possible.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!…

  12. 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."

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  16. 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!

  18. 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

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

    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 export if it can't…
