  1. Dynamic Column width for default Title column in SharePoint List

    Currently the default "Title" column does not have an adjustable width in the new modern SharePoint view only, classic view is unaffected.

    So if the column contains 1 row and the cell contains very little text the column width will not adjust to fit the width of the text and leave a large empty space, pushing adjacent columns to the right off the screen.

  2. Adding geolocation field to SharePoint Lists

    One of the hidden gems in Sharepoint is the new geolocation field. A geolocation field enables you to annotate SharePoint lists with location information. In columns of type Geolocation, you can enter location information as a pair of latitude and longitude coordinates.

    For whatever reason, there's no way to add a new geolocation field via the UI. Instead you have to go through some hoops with PowerShell (see: http://zimmergren.net/technical/sp-2013-getting-started-with-the-new-geolocation-field-in-sharepoint-2013) and/or script (see: http://mysharepointinsight.blogspot.com.tr/2013/05/adding-geolocation-field-to-sharepoint.html).

    As I understand it, there's an MSI package (SQLSysClrTypes.msi)that must be installed manually on the WFEs in an on premises installation to enable geolocation, but…

  3. Remove the limit of 5000 items as result in a view

    You can have millions of items in a list, but as soon as the view you are using returns more than 5000 ítems then you get an error, the only solution is to create filters and indexes to this view, and it has to be done before reaching the 5000 ítems limit, otherwise there won't be a way to create the indexes / filters.
    I know about this workaround because I created a support case in Microsoft Premium, here you have the reference: [REG:116022413747778] Sharepoint History list has been lost or can't be seen

    Apologies for late update here. We’re going to close out this suggestion, directing folks to recent updates we shared at Ignite 2017 around smarter indexing and UX improvements to better manage querying and displaying content from large lists (for more details check out this Ignite session: https://myignite.microsoft.com/videos/53861). For specific scenarios or feedback on this approach please post new suggestions (noting that SQL will never scan more than 5k rows, so specific feedback/suggestions where the current approach still blocks scenarios would be welcome). Thanks!

  4. Submit attachments into SP List using Power Apps

    Hi,
    It would be great that we can store the captured invoice into SharePoint List

  5. Show me all my followed sites in one place

    I'm looking at the new SharePoint page (formerly Sites) and I can't see an way of viewing at the full set of sites that I'm following. There are five of the sites I'm "Following" in the Sidebar and I can see some of these (and others) that I'm following on the main page (solid stars) under "Frequent". There doesn't seem to be a way of just listing all the sites that I'm following, which I could do before.

  6. Create a webpart for modern pages where users can rate the page and metadata about the page is shown

    Pages that contain an internal knowledge base it would be nice to show some metadata, like an info Square, where it can show metadata (what process, Customer, Product it applies to) and the rating. Also let the reader rate the page.
