  1. Implement the Character input restrictions for the discussion board.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):ディスカッション掲示板において、投稿タイトルへの文字入力制限の実装を希望します。

    Implement the Character input restrictions for the discussion board.


    ■Description(内容):
    ディスカッション掲示板において、投稿のタイトルに "%" や "&" などの記号を使用すると、返信をする際にエラー発生や動作が不安定になり業務上運用が難しいため、文字の入力制限の実装を希望します。

    When using the discussion board, if the user enters the specific symbol such as "%" or "&" to the title of posts, the error occurs and it makes the behavior unstable with the replying. Hence, we have a difficulty in using the discussion board in our operations at present.

    Therefore, we would like you to implement the Character input restrictions to suggest unusable characters for the users.

    Thank you for your continued support.

  2. Enable the variable display in the calculated column of a list, depending on date and time.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):リストの集計値列にて日時によって可変表示を行えるようにしたい

    Enable the variable display in the calculated column of a list, depending on date and time.

    ■Description_JP (内容):"NOW" 関数や "TODAY" 関数を組み合わせた条件式を作成した場合、日付列として条件の計算を行う動作とならないため、可変での制御が行えない。そのため日時においても条件の計算を行うことをできるよう機能拡充の要望をします。

    In case I create the conditional expression combined with "NOW" and "TODAY" functions, I am unable to control it variably since the behavior does not indicates the conditional calculation as a date column. Therefore, I hope the relevant feature to be expanded so as to calculate any condition.

  4. Connect SharePoint Online Lists with Outlook for Mac

    SharePoint Online lists (e.g., the task app, the contacts app, etc.) cannot sync with Outlook for Mac. They should. There are solid reasons for businesses and governments to use Apple hardware and OS with Office 365 and SharePoint Online, but the functionality to include SPO lists in Outlook is only for Windows and not for the Mac OS Outlook client. Please change!

  6. Search only in one or some columns

    In List and Document libraries search only in selected columns. If I am finding any document with for example my name inside the documents or items, the all documents where I am author is found. It may be good only in some situations but not at all.

  8. Column Formatting String Operations

    Add additional string options to Declarative Customization Column Formatting. Specfically:

    Unary Operations:
    length
    toLowerCase()
    toUpperCase()
    trim

    Binary Operations:
    indexOf
    lastIndexOf
    endsWith
    startsWith

    Additional Operations:
    replace
    substring
    padStart
    padEnd

    The order of operands, the return value, and the functionality would all match their JavaScript equivalents.

    Having these would greatly increase the power of Column Formatting both in terms of string formatting but also with powerful conditional formatting. Without these basic operations, Column Formatting is still pretty limited.

  9. Upload Image in Picture Column Type

    It would be great if lists allowed you to upload images on the picture column, bit of a pain always linking it up.

  10. improve the setting to modify the above limit of version control.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):バージョン管理の上限値の設定をテナント単位、もしくはサイト単位にて変更する設定について

    Regarding the setting to modify the above limit of version control setting per tenant or site.

    ■Description_JP (内容):バージョン管理の機能について、リスト / ライブラリを多く作成している場合、リスト / ライブラリごとに設定するのは非常に手間がかかります。そのため、バージョン管理の上限値の設定をテナント単位、もしくはサイト単位にて変更する設定を実装していただきたいです。

    I am currently creating a tremendous amount of lists or libraries along with the feature of version control and that actually causes me a lot of troubles because of the necessity for creating per a set of list or library. Therefore, I hope the setting to be available that could enable me to change the above limit of version control function per tenant or site.

  11. 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.

  14. Append-Only Comments field on a Modern UI list doesn't preserve a Modern UI list edit and view experience

    When adding an Append-Only comments field on a list with the Modern UI, changes the New, Edit and View form to the classic form experience. Removing the Append-Only Comments field, reverts the list back to a Modern UI list form experience.

    It would be good to incorporate the Modern Comments ability to a list item as a setting to enable Comments on the list items which behave like the modern Comments in SPO.

  15. Modern experience for Task lists

    Half our lists are not normal lists but task lists. Often both normal lists and task lists are combined in themed processes with lookups.

    It would be really great if the task lists can also switch to the modern experience. It is getting really annoying now to have a mixture of classic and modern experience within the same site/for a single process. Specially for the end user there is need in consistency. Also to introduce the modern experience properly it is much better when a total site can be changed at once and not only a few apps.

  16. enable me to restrict the number of displayed items along with a modern UI.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 : 新 UI では [表示するアイテム] にてアイテム数を制限しても全件表示される

    ■内容: [ビューの編集] より、[アイテムの制限] - [表示するアイテム] をライブラリまたはリストに存在するアイテム数より小さく設定した際に、従来の UI では指定したアイテム数で表示されるが、新 UI では ライブラリまたはリストに存在するアイテム全件が表示されるため、新 UI でも表示するアイテム数の制限ができるようにしてほしい。

    In case of setting of the [Item Limit] - [Item to Show] through [Edit View] as fewer than the number of items in a library or list, I am able to show exactly the same lists as the specified number of items within a classic UI. However, I can only display all of the items in the library or list in a modern UI, and therefore I hope I will be able to restrict the number of items…

  17. implement the feature enabling to modify the value of ID column.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 : カスタム リストのID列の値を変更できるようにして欲しい

    ■内容: カスタム リスト現時点の動作では、ID 列の値は、アイテムが投稿された順番に 1 から始まる整数の連番で表示され、一度設定された既存のアイテムのID値は変更できない状況です。運用上、不便であるため変更できる機能を実装してほしい。

    I am currently aware of the behavior of custom list that I am unable to make any changes for the ID column value of existing item once set since its column shows only the serial integer numbers started with 1 in order of posted items. Considering our business operation, I feel it inconvenient if I would be unable to change the ID value of the previous item once set, and therefore I hope the feature to be implemented that could enable to modify it.

  20. 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…
