  2. 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"

  3. 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.

  4. "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.

  5. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. hide field type icons from new item form list

    Now an icon displays next to the label for each field in the form for a new list item. It looks very cluttered, it would be nice have an option to turn off the icons for a list form with a checkbox.

  15. Use proper datatypes

    There are established concepts of types in most programming languages and databases, if not all.

    I guess the intention to use things like "Numbers" is meant to simplify things, but it does not simplify anything when you try to build apps or flows that communicate with a list or a sharepoint library.

    please make it possible to ask for Int, Float, Boolean etc like C#
    I guess this is already implemented on the db, but please make it available in the apis and connectors etc..

  16. Default Format for Modern List View Web Parts

    If you are using a Tile Format in your list, you are unable to set this format as the default on the Modern List View Web Part.

    You can initially set it by going directly into the list and formatting a view with the Tile Format. This will set that view to the Tile format and the List View Web Part on the home page will show tiles.

    If a user goes directly to the list and changes the format back to list, their home page will now show the list instead of the tile.

    Would be great to make…

  17. Audience targeting: limit number of groups shown in drop down menu

    Give us the option to define what groups users can select for audience targeting of news. All groups in the organization are shown but we would like to limit what groups are shown when users are creating news posts. Needed to make our Intranet more user friendly for intranet contributors.

    Currently when the "Title" column in SharePoint lists is clicked, an "Edit menu" for the appropriate item will be displayed on the right hand pane.

    We hope this feature can be improved to show the "Edit menu" when other columns other than "Title" are clicked on as well.

  19. Display custom message when no items in list or library, using list view formatting

    It would be great to display a custom message when there are no items in list using list view formatting.
    We can check using rowindex if there are no items in list.
    Also will help in reducing white space when adding the webpart to page

  20. Lists: remove unnecessary vertical spaces between items

    In SharePoint Online (Modern UI), if I create a list and i I create "Multiple lines of text" column whose text type is "Enhanced rich text" the new column unnecessarily adds vertical spaces below the text.
    Please corrected this!

    Thank you in advance, Fabrizio.
