  1. 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!

  2. Add an option to truncate/show all by default "Multiple lines of text" column in a Sharepoint list

    It would be really great if there will be an option to truncate or show all the content of a "Multiple lines of text" column in a Sharepoint list.

  7. Allow us to set any time/minutes to set new events at Event web part

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    イベント Web パーツの時刻の設定について
    Allow us to set any time/minutes to set new events at Event web part


    ■Description(内容):
    イベント Web パーツにてイベントの登録を行う場合、日時の時刻設定が 30 分間隔のみの選択となるため、任意の時刻に設定できるよう機能拡充を要望します。

    In the current settings, I can select only 30 min slot when adding events at Event web part, so that I would like to choose arbitrary times when I registered new events.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. Discussion List Threading

    The new default look for discussion lists is beautiful, but we need to be able to easily see threaded replies. For example, if I'm replying to an existing reply, the only indication that it's in response to an existing reply is the note "In response to Sally Jenkin's post". It's not visually associated with the reply (not ordered underneath it, much less indented to see a series of replies). Threading would be tremendously beneficial. I've seen several forum posts that take you through changing the view to a standard list view, but that takes away from the clean design.

  10. Add approve/reject multiple documents and items in Modern Libraries and Lists

    In the new list and document libraries, there are no way to approve multiple documents at once. In the classic view, the button Approve/Reject is available in the ribbon, so you can select multiple items and approve them all.

    I suggest to add a button in the new menubar with the option to approve/reject items or documents. This button must be visible when you select multiple items in the "Pending" state.

  11. Add the function of sorting files through Mobile View in the Document library.

    I assume there is no function of view creation for mobile devices currently. I really hope the function will be implemented to sort files through Mobile View in the Document library as well.

  12. Allow using [Open Documents in Client Applications by Default] feature in lists

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    モダン UI のリストに添付したファイルをクライアント アプリケーションで開く機能の追加について

    Allow using [Open Documents in Client Applications by Default] feature in lists

    モダン UI のリストでも添付された Office ファイルをクライアント アプリケーションで開く機能や設定を追加してほしい。

    When clicking Office files attached to a list in the Modern UI, the files will be opened with Office Online, not Office Client.
    The feature [Open Documents in Client Applications by Default] in [Site Collection Features] is prepared for libraries, so we are not able to use this feature for lists.
    For improvement of usability, make [Open Documents in…

  13. Export filtered list

    I'd like to be able to export a filtered list to Excel. Currently you can filter the list down to the data you want, but when you click "export to Excel" with the data filtered, it still exports the entire list, not the filtered information.

  14. Quick Search on new Sharepoint Lists MISSING

    "old" sharepoint lists have a wonderful quick search function of the entire list we use ALL THE TIME.

    New SharePoint lists do not. WE DO NOT WANT TO USE NEW LISTS UNTIL THIS QUICK SEARCH IS ENABLED

  15. Hide Attach file in modern list

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Modern UI のリストにおける "複数行テキスト" 列を編集時に表示される [ファイルの添付] について

    Hide Attach file in modern list


    Modern UI のリストにおける "複数行テキスト" 列を編集時、[編集] タブから [ファイルの添付] を実行するが、本文内にファイルが添付されない。
    この [編集] タブ内の [ファイルの添付] は、Classic UI のリストにおいてリスト アイテム自体にファイルを添付するための機能であると考えられ、Modern UI のリストにおいて "複数行テキスト" 列を編集する場合にも [編集] タブ内にそのまま表示されている状態にある。
    Modern UI のリストにおける "複数行テキスト" 列編集時においては不要な機能のため、非表示化を希望します。

    We fail attaching files when editing multiline text in modern list. As far as my understanding goes, that ‘Attach Files>Edit’ menu in classic list is to attach files to the item itself and it looks like doing nothing in modern list. Hide Attach file in modern list.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  16. Copy Task

    Duplicate/Copy And Rename Task

    My department manages a request queue using a task list in SharePoint. We have a lot of reporting deliverables that are recurring on daily/weekly/monthly etc. basis. We enter in the report name and date as the task name while all the other fields stay the same. It would greatly improve time spent in data entry if there was the capability to duplicate a task and just rename it instead of having to do an entirely new entry each time.

  19. implement the feature enabling to modify the value of ID column.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 : カスタム リストのID列の値を変更できるようにして欲しい

    ■内容: カスタム リスト現時点の動作では、ID 列の値は、アイテムが投稿された順番に 1 から始まる整数の連番で表示され、一度設定された既存のアイテムのID値は変更できない状況です。運用上、不便であるため変更できる機能を実装してほしい。

    I am currently aware of the behavior of custom list that I am unable to make any changes for the ID column value of existing item once set since its column shows only the serial integer numbers started with 1 in order of posted items. Considering our business operation, I feel it inconvenient if I would be unable to change the ID value of the previous item once set, and therefore I hope the feature to be implemented that could enable to modify it.

  20. Append-Only Comments field on a Modern UI list doesn't preserve a Modern UI list edit and view experience

    When adding an Append-Only comments field on a list with the Modern UI, changes the New, Edit and View form to the classic form experience. Removing the Append-Only Comments field, reverts the list back to a Modern UI list form experience.

    It would be good to incorporate the Modern Comments ability to a list item as a setting to enable Comments on the list items which behave like the modern Comments in SPO.
