  1. 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.

  3. Prioritize large list management in SharePoint Online

    Large list management has to become a priority. Even with the most thought out and careful planning, inevitably something will come up and you need to make a change to a list or library. Once that goes over 5,000 items, it becomes impossible to do anything management related to the list, which actually hinders it's use. Users can continually add files, but you can't do anything to help them.

    This has to be addressed in some fashion, whether it is allowing APIs like REST and CSOM to bypass this restriction so they can perform basic administrative operations or giving us…

    Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that the ability to add indexes to lists of any size is available to SharePoint Online customers as of March 2018. You can now go to “Indexed columns” in List or Library Settings page, and add indexes even if your list has more than 5,000 items. For up to 20,000 items, the indexing should be near instantaneous. For lists with more than 20,000 items, indexing will use a background process and may take some time, usually minutes, but possibly longer if there are a lot of items and if SharePoint is busy serving other requests. Similarly, you are also able to remove indexes that you no longer need.

    We are continuing to work on making larger lists work better, so we will keep this item open. Please don’t hesitate to send feedback if you are running into issues while managing your large lists, and…

  4. Enable the ability to paste images directly into multi-line text boxs instead of just URLs

    Currently you need to paste a URL in a MLTB but if someone is looking to clip and paste a image from their PC, this become a pain. Can we please just paste directly into the MLTB?

  5. Allow lookup columns brought up from different list into calculated columns

    Dear Microsoft, this limitation causes a huge impact in our organization - we have been trying to migrate from MS Access into Share Point due to the collaboration it brings, but the limitation of not being able to use "lookup columns" from other lists into "calculated columns" is pretty bad. It affects negatively our ability to compare and do calculation with values from different fields. The whole purpose of MS Access is to run these queries, but since MS shifted to Share Point we thought that was possible as it not. Please do what it takes to make this happen! …

  6. Remove the 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields

    There is currently a 255 character restriction on Hyperlink fields. This restriction impedes ability to save Urls that might include hash values are long query strings. Some examples where this is really common are links to SSRS reports (with parameters) and Search urls that contain refinements.

  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.

  9. 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.

  13. Modern list experience: Fix filtering for Managed Metadata columns

    the Sharepoint modern list experience is great, but incorrect filtering implementation for Managed Metadata columns prevents us from moving on to this new look.
    Symptom: when creating a list Filter based on a "Managed Metadata" column, the behavior is as follows:
    if the term set on which the Managed Metadata column is based on, contains more than 20 items, the user will have the ability to filter only on the first 20 items via checkboxes. All items in the term set beyond the 20th will be unavailable for filtering. This is because there is no ability to provide a filtering…

  15. Support Field level Permissions

    SharePoint should support Field-Level permissions. It is very common to need the ability to show/hide field values depending on current user permissions

  17. Automate populate Person field with [Me] value

    It would be helpful to be able to automatically populate a List Person field with the name of the user adding an item to a list. Option would need to allow for easily overriding the automatic entry.

  18. Freeze column(s)/pane

    Add the ability to freeze columns in list views.
    E.g. first 3 columns are horizontally frozen, the remainder of columns can be horizontally scrolled.
    Basically the same as Excel's 'Freeze Panes'/'Freeze First Column'

  19. Row Height in Modern List

    Modern list views do not render multi-line text fields correctly horizontally in that a lot of the text near the bottom of the field either can only be half seen or gets cut off completely. Please give users the ability to change the height of the rows just like we can with the width of the columns. What's the point of a multi-line text field if I can't read all of it?

  20. allow saving modern site list as template (for O365 Group Generated Sites)

    The O365 group generated modern team sites do not allow you to save lists as templates which makes it extremely time consuming if you have to generate a new list with same/similar columns & formatting. The only alternative is to use a traditional team site and loose the group features.
