  1. Should be able to use recurring event individual items' fields (e.g. start time, end time) in calculated column

    Currently, if you use a recurring event's field like Start time in calculated column, it is using the main event's start time so it is treated as 1 item. In other word, Start time = Start time of the first event and End time = End time of the last event. We want to be able to use the start time of the individual item created by the recurring event instead.

    Context: We have a SharePoint Online calendar list that people are using as a sign up sheet. What we want to do is to create a simple view that…

  2. Create and Automatically Sync a SharePoint List from an SQL Table

    I know there are ways of achieving this with Power Automate etc. However just like the functionality to create list from Excel document, it would be great to create a list from and SQL Table connection, this would also stay synced.

  4. New list design

    Classic SharePoint list element view -> I spotted the Information at a glance; with the new design I always have to go search for it - what a step back!

    Editing and list element link field open link in new tab and versioning were also way easier before.

    We have conditional formatting set up to change the colors of rows in a custom list, but this does not carry over to the Excel version when exporting it. Please make it so that conditional formatting for colors applies when lists are downloaded as Excel files, too.

    I'm trying to move O365 SharePoint lists from one site to another. I've already tried creating the template from the list with contents and download/upload to new site. However, with this approach the version history is overwritten.

    Is there a way to copy/move the lists with all version history intact?

  7. Add a feature to show all the result of the detail window in SharePoint List items

    When you add the multiple lines of text columns to items in the list or library and the columns includes 4 or 5 lines, you have to click More to get all results. So, we would like to have a feature that can view all texts in the columns as the desired result.

  8. 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

  9. Support modern HTML field editor in IE 11

    Modern HTML field editor is breaking in IE 11 when text size is updated.

    Modern HTML field editor does not support uploading images as the classic editor does.

  11. Enable the List [Edit Form] workflow to optionally change the list Form Heading

    When using the [Edit Form] menu on the modern list view to modify the columns visible in the form, include an option to change the default form heading to a more meaningful caption, e.g. change "New Item" to read "New Subscriber"

  12. Sharing sharepoint lists and list items to external users with ease

    The configuration of lists does not allow sharing lists items or even an entire list to external users unless they have access to the whole site! That would be an amusing feature. Seriously.

  13. "Button" column type for SharePoint Lists

    It would be very useful to be able to format a "Button" column in a SharePoint List to initiate an action based on the content of another column (or columns) in the sharepoint list. The Button column should be able to take one of the following actions depending on the driver values:
    * launch an MS Form
    * trigger a PowerAutomate Flow
    * Navigate to a designated URL, either in the site or external to the site

    The button caption is a text field, but may be derived from a calculated value based on other columns in the list.

    The…

  14. Ability to change Save option to Submit New List form SharePoint List

    Hi there, 

    Currently, You can customize a list on PowerApps by including buttons such as submit and clear but unfortunately, the save and cancel options still remain on top of the new form request. It is quite confusing for an end-user. Would it be possible to remove the "save and cancel" options from a new item from a SharePoint list? Or even give the option to change the name of the save and cancel options? 

    Thank you!

  17. When user is in New Item form, the Cancel button should take them to previous page they were on, not the list.

    We have a link to the new Item form from our site page. When a user clicks on Cancel from the new item form, they are taken to the list and can see all of the content in the list. Due to personal information being in these lists, we want the user to be redirected back to the page they clicked the link from.

  18. A new level of abstraction

    I have a sample for example: consider item requests which include One master list for requests and one detail lists and one attachment Library as operational data. Also I have Product List as a Master-data List. I want a data organization like package to group all of this related lists and library in to a package smaller than a site. This package can have their related pages for presentation and data entry purposes and documentation purposes (event it can share site columns for efficiency)
    Thanks in advance

    "最も人気のあるアイテム" の廃止を取りやめるか、同様に確認できる機能を追加してほしい。
    The amount of views for each item can be checked by using "Most popular item", but the feature has been abolished and the "Site usage" replacement feature cannot be used to check.
    We hope that either "Most popular item" can be brought back, or add a feature that can similarly be used to check.

  20. Add a feature to lookup and retrieve only items larger than the certain value in the lookup columns

    It would be great if the SPO list could automatically lookup and retrieve only items larger than the certain value in the lookup columns.
