  1. allow the list owner to determine what is shown in the create an item +NEW drop down

    Currently the new drop down does not give us a way to edit what field show up in it. I would like to have the choice of what appears in this drop down

  2. Specify which library is used as the default when uploading files in a rich text field

    Allow admins to specify which library is the default selection in the dialog box used when uploading files in a rich text field. Currently, all libraries that a user has access to will appear as values in the drop down list. Many times, the library that is used as the default selection is not the correct one and often users don't pay any attention to that.

  3. connected web parts (list & library) as consumers

    The new dynamic data capabilities are great, but would be much better if lists and libraries were capable of being dynamic data consumers as well as sources.

    My scenario currently is that I've got a list of suppliers, a list containing their evaluations, and a document library containing their certifications. It would be terrific if I could link these on a page, so that selecting a supplier would filter down the list of their specific evaluations and their certifications in a document library view.

  4. Allow changing format settings for multi-line text column in “Rich-Text” format

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    "リッチ テキスト" 形式の複数行テキスト列における書式設定について

    Allow changing format settings for multi-line text column in “Rich-Text” format


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online では、Google Chrome や Firefox、Microsoft Edge のブラウザを利用している場合、"リッチ テキスト" 形式の複数行テキスト列に入力を行う際に、フォントなどの書式設定を変更することができないことを確認しています。
    それに対し Internet Explorer では、書式設定のメニューが表示され、フォントなどの変更が可能であることを確認しています。
    Internet Explorer 以外のブラウザでも同様に書式設定を変更することができるよう機能の追加を希望します。

    If we use Google Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge to see SharePoint Online page, when typing words to multi-line text column in the “rich-text” format, we are not able to change the font or other formatting. Only in Internet Explorer the menu to change the format settings is displayed and we can make changes on the multi-line text column in the “rich-text” format.

    Controlling feature to allow users to view the information only related to themselves


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、SharePoint Online のリスト アイテムをサインインしているユーザー アカウントに関連する情報のみ表示させる方法として、"ユーザーまたはグループ" 列にて [Me] 関数を用いた制御にて可能となるが、[Me] 関数にてユーザーのフィルターをする場合は "ユーザーまたはグループ" 列のみが可能となるため、他の列においても [Me] 関数にて制御を行えるように機能拡充を要望します。
    また、"ユーザーまたはグループ" 列での [Me] 関数の制御以外でも、SharePoint Online のリスト アイテムをサインインしているユーザー アカウントに関連する情報のみ表示させユーザーごとで制御される機能の実装を要望します。

    By controlling with [Me] function at "User or Group" column, we are able to restrict users from seeing list items related to other users. However, filtering users by [Me] function can be performed only on "User or Group" column. It will be great if we could use [Me] function at other columns as well.
    In addition to that, I…

  7. Allow site owners to only share views with specific users

    In a large organization, it is vital that site owners have the ability to share list views with only specific users, thus ensuring the organization-wide Views list remains manageable.

  8. enhance list view filtering options to collectively filter then produce results

    Enhance list view filtering options to allow multiple filtering options to be collectively run THEN count the view total.

    It is evident that the first filtering used on a view, such as a date range, must filter results under 5,000 versus the collective filters returning a count of under 5,000. An example of what I mean by “collective filters” is setting a view to filter on data range + location + other criteria, etc. While our SharePoint 2007 environment was able to do this, SharePoint Online appears to be much more limited with its collective filtering abilities. In other words,…

  9. Improve the behavior in list item edit form on Modern UI lists

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Modern UI リストの "リスト アイテム編集フォーム" について

    Improve the behavior in list item edit form on Modern UI lists


    ■Description(内容):
    リスト アイテム編集中のフォームが閉じられることにより余計な工数が生じ業務に支障が出ている。
    Modern UI リストにおいてリスト アイテム編集時に、編集フォーム以外の他画面をクリックすることで、編集フォームが閉じられてしまい、編集内容の消失により、再入力の手間がかかる。
    新規アイテム作成時は、他画面をクリックしても、フォームが閉じられることはない為、編集時も同じ仕様にしていただく事で、運用時の無用な混乱を避けたい。
    または、リスト アイテム編集フォームにおいて、フォーム外をクリックして閉じられた場合にも、編集した内容が保存されるようにしてほしい。

    When editing list items on a Modern UI list, if you click another window or screen while editing it will close the editing form. Because of this we sometimes lose the edited contents and it requires us to re-edit the form.
    It is time consuming for us, therefore, please stop closing the editing window even if we clicked another screen, just like when we create a new item.…

  11. save as a template sharepoint online list

    Need "Save as a Template" for custom lists in Sharepoint Online for O365 enabled groups (e.g. Teams). We repurpose lists and rebuilding them takes time and labor. If we could save a list (and have choice to include data) as a template this would save numerous hours recreating the same list.

    At Modern UI lists, when we click saved items, and click links at look up column, then scroll the displayed window, it is not available to scroll till the bottom of the window (depend on the number of column or using browser).
    I would like you to allow us to scroll till the bottom of the window for item details of target list.

    Allow us to sort items from newer to older in quick graph web part


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のモダンサイトでは、クイック グラフ Web パーツが展開されております。
    その中のデータの並び替えについて現在の機能では、ラベル付きの列 (1 行テキスト) でのみ並び替えができる動作となっております。
    また、並び替えなしの場合古いアイテムから 50 件が表示されていることを確認しております。
    しかしながら、最新のアイテムから順に表示させる並び替えの項目がありません。そのため、並び替えの機能を最新のアイテムから順に表示されるよう機能の拡充を要望します。

    We would like to see the feature to sort items from newer to older in quick graph web part at SharePoint Online Modern sites.

    At current feature, we are able to sort data only at labeled column (single line text), and items are displayed only 50 with older to newer order.

    The wrapping width is different between Multiline Text column when creating/editing list items, and display form when the saved item is displaying.

    This difference will cause some trouble in our operation, I would like you to be consistent the wrapping width or provide us the feature to change the width in any.

  19. DisplayName for security groups in "Target Audiences" column

    We can set security groups as target audiences in SharePoint Online list items.
    However, security groups do not appear in DisplayName but in DistinguishName when "Target Audiences" column is shown in listview.
    Could we have DisplayName for security groups in "Target Audiences" column?
