  1. Bring Back Barcode Creation in lists

    You used to be able to enable Item content types in a lists to be barcodes. This was very useful in creating inventory lists. Please bring this back!

  3. 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!

  7. Behavior when files with the same name are stored in a site resource file

    サイトのリソース ファイルに同名ファイルが格納される際の動作について
    Behavior when files with the same name are stored in a site resource file


    ■Description(内容):
    カスタム リストの複数行テキストにファイルをアップロードした場合、既定でサイトのリソース ファイル内に保存されますが、その際に同名ファイルが存在した場合、自動的にファイルが上書きされる動作となっております。
    ファイルによっては、残したいファイルもございますため、ファイルアップロード時に同名のファイルがあった場合、上書きの可否を確認する、またはファイル名の後ろに番号が追記されるような形で重要なファイルの上書き保存を防ぐような機能の実装を希望致します。

    If a file has been uploaded to a multi-line text in a custom list, by default it is stored in the site resource file. However, if a file with the same name already exists, it will be automatically overwritten.
    Since there are files that we want to keep unchanged, in cases where a file is uploaded with the same name as an existing one, please make it so that the user has to give their…

  8. Format option to remove the comma from Number columns

    We assign clients a customer number and people around the business (and several systems) do not recognise these numbers if they conatin commas.

    It is currently impossible to remove the comma in a Sharepoint List Number column.

    I've seen users come up with enterprising workarounds using formulae to convert numbers in to text strings but all of these then stop the ability to filter or sort by the standard number methods (eg client 10 is listed before client 2,3,4 etc).

    This is staggering really - such a basic formatting option - I can't believe it's not been implemented already -…

  10. 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.

  11. Pagination in Modern List View Formatting

    Self Explanatory: Pagination in Modern List View Formatting

    I have a Modern List in SharePoint Online where I have applied View formatting for displaying items. Now I'm trying to add pagination in the list with view formatting. But I am not sure whether this can be achieved?

    I would like to see the Pagination option while using View Formatting in Modern List.

  12. Enable freezing the header rows/columns of Lists in SharePoint Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    リストの先頭の列名の行を固定し、リスト アイテムのみスクロールしたい

    Enable freezing the header rows/columns of Lists in SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のリストにて、先頭にある列名の行を固定し、リスト アイテムのみスクロールできるようにしたい。
    アイテム数が多いリストを確認する場合、スクロールすることで列名が隠れてしまい、確認しにくい。
    列名が固定されることでアイテムを確認しやすくなるため、列名がある先頭の行を固定し、アイテムのみスクロールできる機能の実装を要望します。

    I would like to freeze column headers at the top of the page so that users can scroll list items only.
    It is inconvenient when users scroll through a large amount of item because the column header is not frozen at the top.
    In order to make it much easier to view items in a list, please add the option to freeze the header rows/columns of Lists in SharePoint Online.

    Thank you for your consideration.

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

    現在モダン UI のリストにて、添付された Office ファイルをクリックして開くと Office Online で開かれる。
    [サイト コレクションの機能] にある [既定でクライアント アプリケーションでドキュメントを開く] という機能は、ライブラリに対して適用される機能であり、リストの添付ファイルには適用されない。
    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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Add filter by view and search to recycle bin

    We have thousands of documents in our recycle bin. I have no way of filtering them to those belonging to the specific view that I am searching for to recover deleted documents from. The only thing I can do with the gear is switch the view types. Please add filtering and search features to the recycle bin.

  17. 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.

    Option to change the display layout of lists in the modern UI


    ■Description(内容):
    UI 変更により表示形式が変わったリストのアイテムの表示について、以前の表示レイアウトと新しいレイアウトを選択する機能の追加を要望します。
    リストの表示に併せてテキストを構成して運用していましたが、UI の変更に伴いそれらの表示が崩れて表示されるようになってしまいました。
    影響も大きいことから、標準機能として表示を選択できるよう機能拡充の早急な対応を希望します。

    Please allow us to choose between the new and old layout for the display of list items when display formats change due to UI updates.
    We previously composed and used texts in list views, but due to the UI changes they have become jumbled.
    This has a large impact on us, so please allow us to choose between display layouts immediately.

  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.
