  1. Allow default collapsed state for subtasks in SharePoint Tasks list

    Add a functionality into a SharePoint Tasks list using which we can set the default state of sub-tasks as collapsed instead of expanded.

  3. Block creating and importing duplicate items in the SPO list

    It would be great if the system could block creating and importing duplicate items in the SPO list. I think this would be helpful to reduce the number of items in the list.

  4. Bug: View with grouping on Date column formats date incorrectly in filter

    When creating a view that has grouping defined on a date column, if you choose to show groups expanded by default, clicking on the group header passes the date incorrectly and thus shows no results on the individual date page. However, if you change the view to show groups collapsed by default, this works properly. More details in this SP StackExchange post: https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/281518/date-column-grouping-header-links-to-page-with-date-format-incorrect-and-no-resu

  5. Hide a certain choice from the choice columns in List Library

    We would like to have a feature that only a certain user can choose the choice (menu to choose from) from columns; for example, only admin user can see a certain choice in the choice columns.

  6. (empty) filter on task list views

    When I create a standard SharePoint Task list and use a filter in the standard view, there is an option called "(empty)". That option is there if one or more items in the task list has an empty value for that column.
    I propose that selecting the filter option "(empty)" (checking it) will result in the list being filtered to all items where the value is empty in that column. Today all items are shown even if I only check (empty) option.
    Refer to MS case: #20328572, where I reported as a bug, but it is "by design" according to…

  8. Modern List Quick Edit needs work

    The Modern List quick edit experience is less than ideal. There are several drawbacks compared to the classic experience.


    1. The items are big and this leaves less space on the page if you need to add a large amount of items. The classic experience is more like a table and is formatted a bit smaller which gives you the ability to see far more lines while editing and more time before you have to start scrolling down.


    2. When you get to the bottom you have to manually scroll down to the next item as it's only partly visible. In the…

  9. Save the attached files in the list items into local

    It would be great if we could right-click the file name in the list item to directly save the attached Office files such as Excel or Word to local without opening them.
    We currently cannot right-click the file name to save the attached Office file to local because the only available extension is html, so it gets saved as "Doc.html". Although we can download the file by opening it, this is a time consuming way.

  10. Make the compact list view actually compact

    Right now the compact list view is quite extended and spread out. There's a double interline between each item (the empty space is as high as the text's height. This can hardly be called compact. Padding should be reduced more and the font size could be reduced one point so the list can be more compact.

  11. When saving a date to SharePoint item, use the browser's Time zone. Not the user profile or the site regional setting

    The users of SharePoint online may change the Time zone they are in occasionally. They may travel from cost to cost for a few days then come back.
    Using the time zone in profile may be wrong when calculating the UTC of the date-time entered. Also, the date-time of the "Created" field.
    Since everything in "Modern" UI is Client-side based, so should the current user's Time Zone. Most computers I know, are running windows 10 with the automatic time zone.

  12. Use Modern Site Pages to View or edit SharePoint List items

    The out-of-the box View and Edit pages in modern lists are fairly limited - and we can no longer edit them in SharePoint Designer.
    Obviously we can create powerapps to edit them, but I think it would be great if we could create and use Modern Site Page Templates that take a ListItem as a parameter and allowed you to view / edit some or all of the item columns, and customise the layout of the page.
    When using linked lists, you could then also use web parts to display and link to child and grandchild list items

  13. Allow filter on a column multi choice

    Allow filter on a column multi choice

    When you design a colum with the option choice ( with the option: select severals )values), after you can't filter on this column. It'snot really understanding. Please implement this possibility.

    The total number of items in a custom list view will not be displayed unless the view is scrolled.
    If there are lots of items it takes time to scroll and there is no way to know the exact amount immediately.
    Please add a feature to let users know the total number of items even without scrolling.

  15. Search feature for user information lists

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザー情報リストでの検索機能
    Search feature for user information lists


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online では、ユーザー情報リストの画面で登録ユーザーが複数ページにわたる場合に、一括してユーザーを検索する機能が用意されていないことを確認しております。

    ユーザー情報リストから特定のユーザーを探すにあたり、ページ毎に確認することは非効率的で時間を要します。

    ユーザー情報リスト内でも、リスト内検索機能のようにリスト内のユーザーの検索ができる機能の実装を希望いたします。

    We have confirmed that currently in SharePoint Online there is no feature to search users collectively when the registered users span over multiple pages on the user information list screen.

    Having to check each page is inefficient and time consuming when searching for a specific user from the user information list.

    We hope a feature can be implemented to search for users in the user information list like the list search feature.

    We hope for a SharePoint feature to allow any desired column to be specifed as the "Title" column.
