How to Stop SharePoint Lists from opening in Microsoft Lists?

Copper Contributor

Hello,

 

Suddenly my SharePoint lists are opening in Microsoft Lists! Please, does someone know how to stop this? It is confusing everyone! Is it a bug? I found a post that says this is the "new default" behavior for opening SharePoint lists! This simply can't be. Maybe it's a virus? Is anyone else experiencing this? Please help!

 

Thanks. .

Hi @Kathryn Birstein,

By default, SharePoint lists will open in the Microsoft Lists app. According to the SharePoint admin message centre, Site owners can navigate to the Navigation Elements settings page and configure a new setting called “Lists in Sites”, which will enable lists to always open in their associated SharePoint site.

you can try to change this by using classic SharePoint setting, by navigating https://{tenantname}.sharepoint.com/sites/{sitename}/_layouts/15/navoptions.aspx

or going to the SharePoint Site classic settings and changing Navigation elements. Site owners can navigate to the Navigation Elements settings page and configure a new setting called “Lists in Sites”, which will enable lists to always open in their associated SharePoint site.

OK, found the "Navigation Elements" setting. Any idea what the logic is for lists suddenly opening in Microsoft lists? This is causing CHAOS among my clients and there seems to be absolutely no reason for this change!

Hi @Kathryn Birstein,

@LeonPavesic I just Googled for how to stop this. This is highly disruptive, confusing, and leaves us in IT scrambling to explain to our customers why the sudden change. Lists is great in itself, but forcing it onto users is unwanted, particularly with discarding the UI of the site you're on. :anger_symbol:

Hi @cujones4,

I completely understand the concerns regarding the recent change in how SharePoint lists open in Microsoft Lists. This change has come as a surprise and has caused some disruption.

your feedback is valuable, and we Microsoft will continue to monitor user sentiments and provide any necessary clarifications or improvements.

In the meantime, if you prefer lists to open in their associated SharePoint site, you can adjust the setting in the "Navigation Elements" to achieve this.
