  1. Enhance view and column formatting


    • Provide an out of the box facility via the web interface to allow users to make selections to modify the formatting rather than having to generate the JSON themselves.

    • Allow the JSON to be specified with a file reference rather than having to put the code directly in a field. (See also user voice entry: Allow View Formatting to reference external file, https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/35836723-allow-vi...).

    • Prompt for updating view formatting JSON when someone with appropriate rights changes the display width of a field.

    • Allow the Name field for a document to be formatted via view formatting and improve the formatting capabilities…

  3. Filter Pane (All Promoted Links)

    We would like to have the possibility to display the filtered selection values alphabetically sorted at the "Filter pane" on the right side.

    Unfortunately this is not the case at the moment.

  4. Allow users with READ permissions to set their own default view

    Until recently users with Contribute and Read permissions could select their own default view of a list. That feature was removed in the last few weeks. On 10/24/2019 I submitted Ticket #:17267395, and was told that by design users must have EDIT or higher to set a personal default view. Please put this back the way it was. Many readers and contributors to a list really liked having their own default view and are upset that they lost it. At the same time, those users should not have Edit permissions that allow them to Add/Remove/Change entire columns and even delete…

  5. Fix task list showing ID instead of Task Name in modern view

    Please fix the issue now showing with the Tasks list and the Task Name.

    In classic view, the Task Name field shows correctly. In the modern view, the Task Name field shows the ID number of the record instead of the name.

    Support told me to vote for this idea: "Modern experience for Task List" (https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/31844641-modern-experience-for-task-lists#comments) but this problem is just showing in the comments.

    PLEASE FIX THIS.

  7. Two-Way-Sync between SharePoint and Excel

    It should be feasible to sync updates from Excel to SharePoint Online list. We can import the Excel sheet to a SharePoint Online list or export a SharePoint list to Excel file. However, the sync between them is one-way.

    Changes made in the SharePoint list can be written to Excel, but any changes that we make in Excel won't written to SharePoint list automatically.

  8. I want to use all columns for custom list Validation settings

    ■Title(件名):
    カスタム リストの "検証の設定" において、すべての種類の列を利用可能とする機能の実装を希望する。
    I want to use all columns for custom list Validation settings


    ■Description(内容):
    カスタム リストの "検証の設定" において、"ユーザーまたはグループ" 列や、"複数行テキスト" 列の指定が出来ず、比較検証が出来ないため、"ユーザーまたはグループ" 列や、"複数行テキスト" 列を含む現在 "検証の設定" で利用できない列を利用可能とする機能の実装を希望する。
    "User or group" and "Multi-line text" columns cannot be chosen for custom list Validation settings, and comparison validation cannot be done as a result of this problem. Thus I hope that the columns that are currently unusuable (like "User or group" and "Multi-line text" columns) in Validation settings can be made usable.

  10. Add ability to grant permissions per columns for view lists of Custom lists

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online のカスタム リストのビュー一覧に列単位のアクセス権を付与する機能の追加要望

    Add ability to grant permissions per columns for view lists of Custom lists


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のカスタム リストのビュー一覧において、現状では列単位にアクセス権限を与えることができません。例えば特定の列のみ、 [ユーザー A] は閲覧が可能だが [ユーザー B] のみ閲覧は不可などの列単位のアクセス権限の設定ができれば、アイテムごとに権限を付与するよりも、より大きい単位での管理が可能になり、業務の効率化に繋がります。そのためこの機能の追加を要望いたします。

    In the current design, we are not able to grant permission for each column at view lists in SharePoint Online Custom lists.
    It will be great if we could grant permissions for a specific column, for example, [User A] can see the column while [User B] is not allowed to see it. We believe that it will improve the work efficiency rather than granting permissions just for each…

    In the SharePoint Online's list settings, there is no option for personal view in the "Someone changes an item that appears in the following view" part under "Send Alerts for These Changes". Please make it so that personal views can be selected in the notification settings as well.

  13. SharePoint Calendar Alert

    Please include option to set an alert on a SharePoint Calendar. Currently, the only workaround (I'm aware of) is to open the calendar from Outlook and set the alert on the calendar event. I'd like to be able to notify myself and team members about important dates on our SharePoint Online team calendar.

  16. Increase the availability of customization for Quick Links in List.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): クリックリンクのカスタマイズにつきまして

    Increase the availability of customization for Quick Links in List.


    ■Description(内容): ​​
    クリックリンクは [リスト] のレイアウトであれば、画面の幅に合わせて 1 列、もしくは 2 列で表示されるが、2×2で表示されるのを1×4で表示する、もしくは、すべて縦並びで表示するなど、表示方法を制御する方法を希望します。
    また、あわせて、表示されるリンクの文字色を変更する機能も実装されることを希望します。

    In the case of displaying the [List] layout, the click links will be displayed in one or two columns according to the screen width as a default behavior.

    It is convenient if there is an option that allows selecting the display method, such as displaying with 1×4 or 2×2 or displaying all in a vertical format. Besides, We hope the feature enhancement to change the text color of the displayed link too.

    ■Description(内容):
    カ スタム リスト上でフォルダーを作成した場合、クラシック UI では [ アイテムの編集 ] をクリックすることで、簡単にフォルダー名称を変更することが可能です。
    しかしながらモダン UI では、画面上部の "クイック編集" から名称を変更するか、フォルダーの "詳細" を表示し、画面右側のフォルダー名をクリックしてフォルダー名を変更する操作のため、クラシック UI と操作性が大幅に異なることを確認しております。
    変更方法が分かりにくいため、クラシック UI と統一し、 [アイテムの編集] をクリックすることで、簡単にフォルダー名称を変更できるよう機能の修正をお願いします。
    When creating folders on custom lists in Classic UI, the folder name could be changed easily by clicking on Edit Item.
    But in the Modern UI, name is changed by either using Quick Edit on the top of the screen, or display folder details and click on the folder name on the right side of the screen to change it. Both ways are completely…

    Currently option columns are added to a links app and grouped.
    Grouped columns can be sorted in descending and ascending order, but we would like to add a function that can sort in any given order, not only descending or ascending order.
