Column totals missing in modern list views
Column totals missing in modern list views.
This is an often used function, and the workaround to set the list back to classic will only be a temporary solution.

What's confusing is that the "Totals" option is still available in the View Settings screen, it just doesn't show in the actual view. I was helping a new associate the other day with creating views, and the Totals option was something they really needed. So we have to switch back to Classic experience to get that. Not cool.
You should be doing more than just "considering building this functionality". It already existed in previous versions of SharePoint. And there's been no update on this request since April 2017?
I concur with all that have asked why we should have to beg for previous functionality to be reinstated, just because someone at Microsoft decides it's no longer important or needed. I'm still hurting from the deprecation of Access Web Apps, which was also pulled from service without a functional replacement.
I'm all for change and typically embrace it, but not when it means taking backward steps in an attempt to move forward.
Many are desperate for this feature - please bump up the priority list. Thanks!
We need this please

Why do we constantly have to request functions we previously had? And then act like we've been given this brand new function when it has returned?

How could Microsoft be "Thinking About It" - this is a basic function for SharePoint for years.

I would like to see that this added back in also! This is not a good work around.

We would need this functionality as part of our process. It is very pathetic to see MS, removed the functionality that was used very frequently till the previous version of SharePoint. Bring back the functionality.
Team, We've had this capability in SP for knowing my stake holders on the count of a library/list. Now, when we switch to MUI, I can't because count or sum items.
PLEASE Microsoft!!! We've had this capability forever and now when I want to FINALLY switch to modern sites and pages, I can't because I am required to put totals in list web parts on landing pages. Come on!!
I do not understand why we have to beg for functionality that was part of SharePoint for more than a decade.
shame on MS for a reckless and irresponsible approach. Stop bringing and building features that nobody needs and asks. If they are "in addition" to what existed before - is fine, but not "instead" as MS does now.
Please Microsoft, include this feature. It is extremely useful. I have created a complete IT billing system that charges each department for all Office 365 and Azure usage based on user as an example.
Getting the count and totals while using a SharePoint list is super functional and I have replaced many excel spreadsheets or Access Database apps because of that function. Especially now that you have the group by function so easily available adding in totals would make the product have immediate value for many business processes.
I have been implementing and upgrading to SharePoint modern sites and have experimented with Power BI embedded and using a Native modern SharePoint list and I have to say, hopefully your artificial intelligence engine is working, as there is an opportunity to merge the two technologies together in a hugely productive way for end customers.
For now, the modern SharePoint list is still much needed as the embedding of Power BI into a SharePoint Page still has nuances if you are strictly looking for data.
However, I truly believe that a SharePoint list should soon be feeding directly into the common data model. Basically , SharePoint just becomes a Artificial Intelligence front End with the common Data model feeding the global artificial intelligence data silos.
You can collect hundreds of millions if not billions of tenants metadata and feed it into the AI engine for some pretty interesting results. I believe that you could adapt a common business processing engine that new businesses would simply tap into and be up and running.
Anyway, please bring back totals if you can!

While Microsoft takes a lot of effort for new features/functionalities to be adopted, they should make more effort to communicate what features/functionalities will not work when making the adoption.
Any update on this? Been almost a year since Microsoft chimed in. We just converted our entire intranet to modern sites, lists and libraries. Now I have to revert some back to the old UI.
Its a shame, I can get all this stuff automatically if I use Quickbase.
I really need this functionality as we use the SharePoint list for business data analysis. Please give an update on when this function will be made available.
This functionality is key to almost every list I have. I really enjoy the look of the new lists, bet require the SUM functionality.
Microsoft, Can you please provide an update on timing of adding the totals functionality to modern list views?

Please add this functionality to Modern view soon!
It's taken me ages to find out this isn't standard on the new view - back to classic. This is such basic functionality that users have become to depend on.
