Microsoft has announced that it will be launching new modern SharePoint Online lists, as well as Microsoft Flow and PowerApps one-click integration options.
These lists are intended to offer users a fresh way of collaborating on structured information directly via team sites, with the aim of helping work groups with the organisation of content. A number of features that are likely to prove useful to enterprises are incorporated into the modern SharePoint lists, including data grouping, filtering and sorting capabilities, and list columns, designed to make using SharePoint Online easier.
Among other key capabilities are the option to edit and view details of all items within the information panel, with no need to exit the list; a Quick Edit function for editing items on a list in bulk, to enhance productivity; alerts, approvals and versions for automating basic business processes; and managed tags for metadata, images, people and other rich data types, for enriching static information.
Microsoft Flow is a solution for automating the exchange of data and workflows between third-party and Microsoft services and SharePoint. The one-click integration lets users develop and release Flows from SharePoint lists before modifying or storing them in SharePoint. The PowerApps integration will let them use SharePoint lists for the building of mobile apps or forms, with no requirement for code to be written.
Office 365 customers will start receiving the updates during early August.
