  1. Enable geolocation field in Sharepoint 365

    I see that it's possible to create a map view for the geolocation field in SharePoint, but not for the web-based Sharepoint 365. Please enable this field as default within 365 for online users.

    See here for desktop instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/create-a-map-view-for-the-geolocation-field-in-sharepoint

  2. 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."

    Option to enable/disable Lists functions


    ■Description(内容):
    今後リリース予定の Microsoft Lists の機能をオン・オフ切り替える設定 (PowerShell 等) の追加を希望します。
    Microsoft Lists の詳細情報を確認できない状態でのリリースは管理者として懸念があるため、Microsoft Lists の機能を既定でオフにしたいと考えています。

    We would like to be able to enable or disable Lists features that are scheduled for release (using PowerShell etc.).
    Feature releases where the details are unconfirmed cause issues for administrators, so we would like to be able to disable Lists features by default.

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Hide Details Pane in Modern List

    Please add the ability to hide or disable the details pane in Modern Lists.
    Users find this annoying and there is no reason that this should be visible all the time.

  12. 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.

  13. JSON column formatting and hidden fields

    Right now, in order to add the reference to the column in JSON (column/view) formatting, you have to show that column in the list view.

    Instead, it would be useful to refer to hidden field to format a column.

    背景として、部署の変更等に伴いサイトを移行する必要性がある場合、リストやライブラリのサイズが 50 MB 以上であるため、迅速な移行かつ柔軟な活用をしたいと考えています。​

    We have confirmed that in the current feature, list templates have a size limit of 50 MB.

    Thus we hope that the maximum size for list templates to be increased to 50 MB.

    The reason is that if there is a need to migrate sites due to changes in departments etc, the size for lists and libraries will go beyond…

  15. Filter List Using User-Selected Date Range of a Column in SharePoint Online

    Create a feature where a user can filter a list based on a date. The built in quick filter only allows you to scan by days since today (Last 3 months, Last 3 weeks, etc.) or select individual days. I'd love a feature that allows the user to enter a "beginning" and "end" date and any dates between that range are displayed.

  16. Read Only List Columns

    This is a very common scenario where you need a COLUMN that is only editable by certain permission levels or by a workflow, flow, or other automated process. The column configuration screen should have several settings for New, Edit, and View forms.

    Read Only Column
    1) Read-Only
    2) Locked on New Item
    3) Locked on Edit Item
    4) Editable (Normal)

    Group or Permission Level allowed to Edit


    Viewable On (Checkboxes)
    1) New
    2) Edit
    3) Display

    Permissions required to always Edit
    1) Approve
    2) Cancel Checkout
    3) Specific Group ________

    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.

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

    *English follows Japanese
    Right-click on attachment file name
    ■Title(件名):
    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 clicking…
