  1. Re-establish Content Type for list items PLEASE

    What's happening? The Content Type drop-down menu suddenly disappeared from the NEW Item list dialog box! If we EDIT an item in Dialog box mode, the content type drop-down is available. My new client is VERY unhappy about being inable to select a content type (one of 11) to enter new data.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    "ワークフローの状態" 画面の保存について
    Allow us to save “workflow history” of each item

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のワークフローで、各アイテムの "ワークフローの状態" 画面にある "ワークフローの履歴" を保存したい。ワークフローの履歴をまとめたリストがあるのは知っているが、アイテムごとの "ワークフローの履歴" を保存できるようにしてほしい。

    We would like to save “workflow history” of each item from “Workflow Status” page for SharePoint Online workflow.

    We know there is a list of workflow history, but if I can save for each item, it would be more usable.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  3. 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.

  4. List filter

    Better data mining for lists and libraries. An app to filter list data based on criteria and then select columns and rows based on the filters. Allow multiple selections for column and row.

  5. Enable downloading list attachment files directly regardless the file extensions.

    リストの添付ファイルのダウンロードについて

    Enable downloading list attachment files directly regardless the file extensions.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    リストに添付したファイルの拡張子により、Office Online 上で開けず Office クライアントで開いてから [名前を付けて保存] をする必要があるため、工数がかかってしまう。
    ファイルの拡張子に関わらず、[添付ファイル名で右クリック] - [対象をファイルに保存] (IE11の場合) で Office ファイルをダウンロードできるようにしてほしい。

    たとえば、以下の拡張子が Office クライアントで開いてから [名前を付けて保存] をする必要がある
    ・xlsm
    ・xlsb

    We are aware that some file extension types (i.e. xlsm/ xlsb) cannot be opened on Office Online when we try to open attachment files on Lists. It requires us to open the attachments via Office Client first and click [Save As] button.

    For reducing workloads, we would like to be able to download attachment files by simply…

  6. 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.

  7. Enable List Preview for ALL types of List not just Custom Lists

    List Preview should be able to surface any type of list not just a custom list, as it is much the neatest way of embedding list content such as Contacts, Tasks, Favourite Links into another page.

    In the current settings, I can select only 30 min slot when adding events at Event web part, so that I would like to choose arbitrary times when I registered new events.

  9. Way to disable details pane on a per list basis

    By using custom forms, be it javascript based or via PowerApps, one has the ability to put business logic in the data input (e.g. hide certain fields based on usercontext, enable validation of certain input, etc.).

    The details pane is handy, except for these situation, because it allows users to bypass all these valiations.

    Please allow for a way to disable this panel for certain lists so the data input doesn't get corrupted by wrong data input.

  11. Enable immediately updating/reflecting the term set after changing in the Custom List.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):カスタムリストにおける用語セットの反映時間の短縮化について

    Enable immediately updating/reflecting the term set after changing in the Custom List.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現時点の動作では、カスタムリストにおいてアイテムを作成時に変更した用語を選択して保存すると、用語セットの変更情報が反映するのに最大24時間を要する状況です。反映に時間を要する状態では、運用上問題が多いため、即時反映するよう早急な機能の改善を強く希望します。

    As a current behavior of the Custom list, we realized that it takes up to 24 hours to reflect the site when you change/select items in the term set and save it.

    Since updates are not immediately reflected, our business is greatly affected. Therefore, please improve the feature that enables immediately updating/reflecting after changing the term set.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Sorting and displaying of issued date for Blogs

    ■Description(内容):
    ブログをコンテンツ検索 Web パーツでサイトのページに表示する際に、発行日時でソートができる機能の実装を希望します。
    [PublishedDateOWSDATE] を管理プロパティにマッピングすることで可能とはなりますが、マッピングすることなく、標準機能でソートができるべきであると考えています。
    また、表示形式を "MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM" ではなく "YYYY年M月D日" など、他の形式に変更できるようする機能を希望します。
    発行日時を任意の形式で表示する集計値列を作成し、管理プロパティにマッピングすることは可能ですが、その場合は 表示される日時の前に "string;#" と表示される動作になる為、要望に合いません。

    We would like to sort blogs by issued date when it displayed at Content Search Web Part.

    Mapping [PublishedDateOWSDATE] to Managed Property make us available this behavior but still this should be as a standard feature.

    In addition, it would be very nice if we have the option for the date display format with Japanese style, instead of "MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM" format.

    Even we create calculated column which is…

    In case of setting of the [Item Limit] - [Item to Show] through [Edit View] as fewer than the number of items in a library or list, I am able to show exactly the same lists as the specified number of items within a classic UI. However, I can only display all of the items in the library or list in a modern UI, and therefore I hope I will be able to restrict the number of…

  15. Modern Experience - Respect Library Setting "Open in client application"

    When modern view is turned on and you click on the file name, it launches in Word Online. It does not respect the "Open in the client application."

  16. Allow users with READ permissions to set their own default view

    Until recently users with Contribute and Read permissions could select their own default view of a list. That feature was removed in the last few weeks. On 10/24/2019 I submitted Ticket #:17267395, and was told that by design users must have EDIT or higher to set a personal default view. Please put this back the way it was. Many readers and contributors to a list really liked having their own default view and are upset that they lost it. At the same time, those users should not have Edit permissions that allow them to Add/Remove/Change entire columns and even delete…

    SharePoint Online のカスタム リストのビュー一覧に列単位のアクセス権を付与する機能の追加要望

    Add ability to grant permissions per columns for view lists of Custom lists
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のカスタム リストのビュー一覧において、現状では列単位にアクセス権限を与えることができません。例えば特定の列のみ、 [ユーザー A] は閲覧が可能だが [ユーザー B] のみ閲覧は不可などの列単位のアクセス権限の設定ができれば、アイテムごとに権限を付与するよりも、より大きい単位での管理が可能になり、業務の効率化に繋がります。そのためこの機能の追加を要望いたします。

    In the current design, we are not able to grant permission for each column at view lists in SharePoint Online Custom lists.
    It will be great if we could grant permissions for a specific column, for example, [User A] can see the column while [User B] is not allowed to see it. We believe that it will improve the work efficiency rather than granting permissions just for…

  18. Drag & Drop for list items

    Drag and Drop:
    The list item attachment process is the cumbersome. There is already drag and drop capability within the document library- is it possible to extend this capability with list items? It would make a huge impact in our daily work.
