  2. 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.

  3. Fix task list showing ID instead of Task Name in modern view

    Please fix the issue now showing with the Tasks list and the Task Name.

    In classic view, the Task Name field shows correctly. In the modern view, the Task Name field shows the ID number of the record instead of the name.

    Support told me to vote for this idea: "Modern experience for Task List" (https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/31844641-modern-experience-for-task-lists#comments) but this problem is just showing in the comments.

    PLEASE FIX THIS.

  4. Freeze column(s)/pane

    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'

  5. Lookup data from a list on another site

    Need the ability to add a lookup column on a list in one site that pull data from a list in another site. There are paid plugins that do this, they call it "cross site lookup", but this should be available by default in office 365 sharepoint.

  6. Connect SharePoint Online Lists with Outlook for Mac

    SharePoint Online lists (e.g., the task app, the contacts app, etc.) cannot sync with Outlook for Mac. They should. There are solid reasons for businesses and governments to use Apple hardware and OS with Office 365 and SharePoint Online, but the functionality to include SPO lists in Outlook is only for Windows and not for the Mac OS Outlook client. Please change!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  13. 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.

  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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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. 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.

  20. SYNCHRONIZE CONTACT LIBRARY

    We've a Contact Library on Sharepoint, and it's synchronized with Outlook. We've also our smartphones (Apple and Android) synchronized with Outlook, but we saw that only Personal Contacts are synced.
    It'd be great to have also the Other Contacts synced.
    Regards

    Daniele
