  2. Bring back list functionality from 2010

    When we upgraded to 2016 we no longer have certain list functionality:
    -No way to display the description for a list. This was great for providing users with additional information.
    -When editing a list in quick edit, allow all entries to display rather than limiting. In addition, improve the speed for when you select more than 100 entries to display at one time.
    -When deleting items from a list allow user to scroll down list to select all the items they want to delete rather than just what shows on their screen.
    -When pasting items into a list from excel,…

  4. Export only selected items to Excel

    Add the ability to Export to Excel only the selected items on a list. Currently, the entire list gets exported without filtering in the version of SharePoint that we're using.

  6. remove hidden column from quick edit

    When you have set certain columns to not be visible within the new or edit form, you are still able to modifiy these columns by setting them in your view and then quick edit the view.
    Please remove these columns in order to let the user experience the same editable fields

  7. Collapsed group View not working on large lists

    With large lists (over 5000 items), setting a view to display groups collapsed, does not work in a modern view. Please provide the ability to collapse the groups in view, to provide a quicker response time for the end user, versus having to enumerate all the items in the list, expanded out.

  9. Enable geolocation field in Sharepoint 365

    I see that it's possible to create a map view for the geolocation field in SharePoint, but not for the web-based Sharepoint 365. Please enable this field as default within 365 for online users.

    See here for desktop instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/create-a-map-view-for-the-geolocation-field-in-sharepoint

  10. Add filter by view and search to recycle bin

    We have thousands of documents in our recycle bin. I have no way of filtering them to those belonging to the specific view that I am searching for to recover deleted documents from. The only thing I can do with the gear is switch the view types. Please add filtering and search features to the recycle bin.

  11. Way to disable details pane on a per list basis

    By using custom forms, be it javascript based or via PowerApps, one has the ability to put business logic in the data input (e.g. hide certain fields based on usercontext, enable validation of certain input, etc.).

    The details pane is handy, except for these situation, because it allows users to bypass all these valiations.

    Please allow for a way to disable this panel for certain lists so the data input doesn't get corrupted by wrong data input.

  12. Ability to Freeze Headers in SharePoint Lists

    I would think the ability to freeze headers in lists (some become very large) and being able to see the header (similar to how Excel provides the ability to freeze headers) while scrolling should be a given.

  13. Easy column formatting for SharePoint lists

    I get that JSON gives ultimate flexibility for column formatting, I really do - BUT - please can we have some basic if-then-else value-based column formatting options built in to the list field definition user interface?

    It would really help the rest of us who are not coding geeks and don't have the time to understand the ins and outs of the very convoluted JSON syntax.

    And while you are about it, please can we have TODAY() or NOW() and ME() functions enabled for calculated fields?

  14. hide/disable the Recent Activity in the details pane

    Implement a configurable switch to hide/disable the Recent Activity in the details pane. Should be configurable at the user, library or tenant level.

    Users find it annoying when the details pane keeps refreshing as other users update a list item or document; it makes the details pane constantly refresh and appears to "flicker" causing a poor user experience.

  16. Add Modern contact list

    Self-explanatory : please add contact list template as modern list.

  17. Setting for freezing column headings

    Please add a LIST setting to control freezing column headings. The New Experience doesn't seem to allow freezing column headings which makes viewing data very difficult.

  18. Show document Name in list field lookups

    When linking a sharepoint list field to a document library, we need a method to be able to select the "name" field of the document library. At the moment we can only return the Title, which when navigating is to select the linked document shows nothing as folders and documents dont have "title" by default.

    Also need the ability to select the root folder.

    Trying to build an index (list) that cross references projects with documents and without this it is very hard - almost impossible

  19. Lookup data from a list on another site

    Need the ability to add a lookup column on a list in one site that pull data from a list in another site. There are paid plugins that do this, they call it "cross site lookup", but this should be available by default in office 365 sharepoint.

  20. Enable voting on "Likes" in actual item screen even after clicking the items.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): カスタム リストにて、アイテムをクリック後に「いいね!」の操作を可能にしてほしい

    Enable voting on "Likes" in actual item screen even after clicking the items.


    ■Description(内容):
    現在カスタム リストへアクセスし、アイテム一覧画面にて、「いいね!」の操作が可能だが、アイテムをクリック後は、「いいね!の数」が表示され、「いいね!」の操作が出来ない。
    アイテムをクリック後でも、「いいね!」の操作が出来るよう、機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, I recognize that "Likes" Posting is possible at Screen of the Item list of the first layer when accessing the Custom list. After that, the Number of Likes will be displayed automatically after clicking on the item and the user cannot click "Likes" from the pages.

    In order to improve usability, I hope the feature to be implemented that enables voting on "Likes" even after clicking the items. (in actual item screen)

    Thank you for…
