  1. 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.

  2. Enable 'Export to Excel' on non-IE Browsers

    We can use the 'Export to Excel' functionality in lists and libraries in Internet Explorer, but it doesn't work in Chrome or other browsers, even though the ribbon button is enabled. Instead, we get errors that look something like this:

    RootFolder=/sites/mysitename/Lists/mylistname

    As I understand it, this is because the functionality uses ActiveX. However, in this modern world we know that people are using different browsers very frequently. This should work in all browsers or at least fall back to a CSV export if it can't…

  3. 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.

  5. Ability to lock columns in Datasheet view

    As a SPOL user I want the ability to lock column heading/columns while viewing a list in a Datasheet view. With the current functionality if you have a very long list of items, or many columns then the user can easily get lost.

  6. Make Column formatting real easy and not with JSon

    Column formatting in SharePoint online.
    Why so complicated that you have to use Json.
    It doesn't fit in with the idea of modern pages and modern UI.
    Should be as simple as selecting a format....

  7. Add calculated column type "HTML"

    Add a calculated column type "HTML." This would allow for greater creativity and flexibility within lists, and allow for project status dashboards.

  8. Unify the information between Exchange Online calendar and SharePoint Online calendar.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名: Exchange OnlineとSharePoint Onlineの予定表の連携について
    ■内容:
    現在、 Exchange Online の予定表を利用しているユーザーと SharePoint Online の予定表を利用しているユーザーがいる。
    そのため、Exchange Online の予定表とSharePoint Online の予定表を連携させて利用したい。

    また、クライアントのOutlookを介さずにOffice 365 内で利用できるように機能を改善してほしい。
    =====
    Unify the information between Exchange Online calendar and SharePoint Online calendar.

    Currently, we have multiple users who use the Exchange Online calendar and the SharePoint Online calendar each.
    Therefore, I would like to use Exchange Online calendar and SharePoint Online calendar in conjunction with each other for increased usability.

    I also hope the feature will improve to enable using within Office 365 without going through the client's Outlook.

    Thank you for your continued support.

  9. Export list to excel on OSX

    Exporting a list to Excel is a crucial feature. In large mac environments, not having this prevents lists from being utilized at all

  10. Print button for lists

    An option to add a print button to the menu would help improve useability as a common issue I've come across with lists is users wanting to be able to print easily

  11. New Experience - People & Groups columns should show picture (& status)

    In the classic experience, when chosen the column type 'Person or group' to show Picture or Name+picture+status this worked as expected. In the New experience, all columns of this type show the name with hover property to see the ID card of this person, while groups don't show anything.

    For the status, I understand that with the multiple-platform vision it's possible that this will never return.
    But for the pictures, it should at least show as expected.

    Also: if a group is chosen, the option to display all members without popup would also be a good feature

    thx
    A.

  12. Graph SharePoint list data

    I use sharepoint lists data in combination with Tableau and Power BI to give graphs. SharePoint 365 you can only use Excel and it's not live and can't auto refresh. Having the ability to get graphs and pivot graphs onto a sharepoint page from a list would be an awesome feauture.

  14. 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…

  15. Freeze column headings for Quick Edit Mode

  16. 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.

  18. Graphs and charts for SharePoint lists

    Make a set of charts and graphs available as App Parts to consume SharePoint list view. Bar, Line, Area, Pie, Donut and Gauges at least.

    It seems odd that a platform which is used by so many organisations to record data has to rely on external chart libraries such as Google or third party Apps to provide visualisation of that data. Should be built-in!
