  1. Wrap column headers in a Sharepoint list.

    Is there anyway to wrap the column titles in SharePoint online? We have several column headers in our list that are being truncated due to being too long.

    Behavior when changing the name of list columns


    ■Description(内容):
    新規リスト作成時に [既存のリストから作成] 機能を使用し、列名を変更したリストを既存のリストとして指定し、リストを作成した場合、列名を変更したユーザーの言語により、動作が異なる。

    2. サイトの第一言語とユーザーの第一言語が一致しない場合 : 変更前の列名でリストが作成される

    上記 2 の場合でも、変更後の列名のリストが作成されるように機能の拡張を希望します。

    When creating a new list, using the “Create from existing list” function, if a list is created from a specified list with edited column names, the subsequent behavior changes depending on the language used by the user who made the change.


    1. If the site’s primary language and the user’s primary language are the same, the list is created with the edited column names

    2. If the site’s primary language and the user’s primary language are…

  3. Allow for a deleted List column to be restored from Recycle Bin

    Currently, deleting a column creates a permanent data loss. This is very dangerous situation since introduction of modern sites because members of sites are granted Edit permission by default which allows them to edit lists and delete columns.

  5. Bring back the checkin/checkout functionality on list items

    Users need the ability to check out a list item so that it cannot be modified by anyone else. We continue to get complaints about users overwriting each other's changes. Need the check in / check out functionality returned with SharePoint Online.

  6. The Sharepoint native task app should already be in the modern experience, with a new layout and new features. Following the modern model of

    Timeline - Gantt View in Modern Experience
    Timeline in Modern Experience Gantt View

    The tasks app should allow a timeline to be created and displayed in the modern experience of sharepoint online.

    Tasks needs to be created and searchable in the modern experience. Just like it use to work in the classic experience.

  7. Allow filter and ordering look-up field

    When you have a large amount of look-up items, it would be nice to be able to sort/order the field. Currently when using a lookup field that points to a larger list, it currently is setup for ascending order based on ID; however, it seems that it could be more practical to be Decending order as new items show first in the list when choosing your look-up option in the form. In either case, currently there is no ability to control the order or even filtering of a look-up field. I think this could be a nice and easy enhancement…

    Please add a way to print items in a custom list as a report in a similar way to how they can be seen in the item detail view screen on the modern UI.
    It takes work to convert data from an Excel file into a report. It’s especially inconvenient when you want to only print a single item, so it would be convenient if you could print as-is from the item…

  18. Show list items when using "search this site" (modern experience) SP2019

    SP2019 on prem doesn't return list items when a user for a modern team site searches on the on-site search box (modern experience). Documents and pages are returned, but not list items.

    This has been fixed on SP online, but not on SP2019.
