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'

This should have been a basic feature to freeze at least first column
The fact that the first column automatically freezes in "Edit in grid view" mode but can't do the same in the regular view is silly. Please, Microsoft?
This fearture would facilitate the shift from Excel to List.. Today it is the main excuse people tell us about the fact they don't want to switch because they got lost
This feature would significantly improve the functionality and efficiency of using lists in SharePoint.
It's been almost 2 years since this has been first requested. Are there any updates?
I agree with everyone - this should have been one of the basic, or at least one of the early functionalities introduced. This is a feature that would be beneficial for many of the SharePoint lists that we have already.
This would be a great feature. I have multiple clients with multiple SharePoint lists that have columns they would like to freeze as they scroll 'right' to view or update other columns when in Edit Datasheet view.

This is a basic functionality that should have been introduced when the locking of the header rows was introduced.
When scrolling to the right it is impossible to see what row is linked to what title (or other column)
We would benefit from this a lot. Staff are having difficulty keeping track of who they are looking at.
Please add freeze column in SP 2013

Please add the freeze row and column selection in SharePoint lists. This will make it much easier to work with large amounts of data in a list. Not being able to freeze the column heading row and some columns makes it extremely difficult. This is Nov 2020. It should be done quickly.
Our users request this feature more than anything else. It would be a great time saver when trying to edit lists with a large number of columns.
Prefer to have this important function for easy tracking, reference and minimize typo error while key in information in List.
When working with bigger lists, the left most column is often a name or identifier, losing track of this when scrolling makes the list very difficult to read.
Roger Lysnes commented
This is almost as important as freezing the top row (title row). Very easy to lose track of where you are when you don't see the left column.

Our organization would benefit from this functionality as we have key lists with many columns, the first few columns are identifiers which then scroll of screen when panning right.
