  3. Too much whitespace

    Please make sharepoint lists look more like excel spreadsheets. There is wayyy too much whitespace and the amount of scrolling is ridiculous.

  4. hide add column

    Currently in Microsoft Lists the "+Add Column" is always visible which takes up part of the view space. This column will never have data in it as it is just a place holder. As such it should not be there. The + symbol by itself, should be more than sufficient if you want to add a column. And/Or in the drop down menu for each column you can add a "Add Column" option.

  9. Items are listed in unexpected view in the exported Excel file

    If you try to export large list in Excel under the following conditions, view problem occurs in the exported Excel file.
    1. You have a list which has more than 10000 items.
    2. Creating a filtered view in this list that has a column index.
    In this scenario, the list is shown in the expected filtered view, but if you export this list view into Excel, the filtering won’t be exported as expected and items IDs are listed in wrong order in the exported .iqy file.
    Please improve this exporting behavior to correctly display items in the expected view.

    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online の動作では、クラシック UI およびモダン UI のリストのハイパーリンク列で起動するブラウザーを指定したリンクの作成が行えない。

    Under the current SharePoint Online functionality, there is no way to create links that will open in a specified browser for within list hyperlink columns in either the classic or modern UIs.
    Having to paste links into the desired browser yourself takes extra work, so please add the above function to make things more convenient for users.

  13. total functionality for calculated number and currency columns

    In a list view, have the ability to apply the "Totals" functionality for a Calculated column that produces data type returned as a Number or Currency. This would lead to a better user experience for calculations, or reproducing, but changing, the math function for a column. For example the sum and average would be available for a calculated column that was replicated.

  14. @mention in List comments

    As we adopt Lists, we realize that we have several meetings looking at items in existing lists. We like the ability to comment on items and that has alleviated some meeting time, but it's tough to get people to check for updated comments or responses.

    Please make it possible to @mention another user in a list item's comments and let that notification come in via Teams by default (maybe offer a setting so people can ask for email notifications).

    About the column types that can be chosen at column creation in Modern UI lists

    モダン UI のリストで列作成時に選択できる列を全種表示されるように、機能の改善を望みます。
    現在、モダン UI のリストで [+] または、[+ 列の追加] から列を作成しようとすると、以下の列種別は [その他...] を介さねば作成できない動作を確認しております。

    When creating new columns in Modern UI lists, please change it so that all column types are displayed.

  17. Please enable access to list item comments from list web parts

    The latest List Comments feature (rolled out Dec 2020 onwards) seems not to work from a list web part on a modern page in SharePoint Online. The Comment command bar button and Comment icon in the Title field area do not appear in an embedded list.

    Also when selecting a list item and opening the details panel using the ℹ button on the command bar, the comments icon does not appear there either (unlike the details panel that opens from an ordinary list view page).

    Is this intended behaviour or are fixes for this going to be rolled out? To…

  18. Modern Calendars Filtering by Properties

    The new modern experience calendars cannot use many of the functionalities standard list views have, for example filtering by properties.

    The fact these filter options are still available, but just give meaningless error messages makes me think this is more of a bug than a suggestion, but after speaking to Microsoft support this is 'expected behaviour'.

    The closest you can get is adding url parameters to add FIlterFields, but these views can not be saved and only provided as links for users.

    Please allow all the great functionalities within list view settings to work in modern experience calendar views!

  19. Hide list columns based on user permissions

    When creating a list, have the option to hide a column based on permissions to that site. For example:

    A List has 5 columns however 2 of them columns are for the use of the internal team only.

    Site visitors when accessing the list will only see 3 columns and hide the 2 internal team columns based on their permissions.

  20. Allow formatting column headers in list view using JSON formatting

    The JSON formatting feature of list views is great. I use it very often and many client like the new looks formatted using JSON.

    However there is no way to format the column headers in list view using JSON.

    Please allow formatting column headers in list view using JSON formatting as this is much needed feature.
