Documents now offers a Compact List view. If it has been there before I haven't noticed it.

It popped up in our tenant no later than yesterday, not sure how long we've had it. Doesn't look like it's usable in the Document Library web part (yet).

 

Is there any observable difference in this view other than taking up less space per row?

Nothing more than you’ve observed Matt. I’m amazed, though, how much I’m still stumbling across in addition to all the formal comms we get!

It's great that it has a compact view. Too bad this isn't the default. I can ask for it to compact view and I want this to be the norm for my entire site but as soon as I close it out and come back in it is all uncompacted again. Any idea of how I can make the page and if possible the entire site "compacted"

Thx

I would also like this, I have a current client requesting this.

Hi , does anyone use this in the sharepoint app on tablets?

I have this compact list view on my SharePoint online on Windows desktop but not in my SharePoint app on iPad for example.

@John Wynne Really like the feature, but the list settings needs to have a toggle to default the behavior as needed.  The modern view has far too much white space...so much wasted screen real estate.

@CanadaOneStopShop @John Wynne Did anyone ever figure out how to make the Compact List View the default view?

@AEC_Mike I still don't think there's an option for it yet, in the UI anyway. There's a user voice asking for compact be to be able to be set as default for a view here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/38057041-default-...
