User is viewing my SharePoint List in Classic Experience only and have trouble saving their entry

Copper Contributor

Hi all,


Have created a SharePoint list and share it out with my business users, and so far have reported a few observations here:

  • User reported that they are viewing the SharePoint list in classic experience instead of modern experience which I want them to be.  Have changed the setting under List Settings - Advanced Settings to force the page to load in modern experience by default instead of system detect however it doesn't seem to resolve the issue
  • User also reported that whatever item that they opened up and edit, it does not save the entry when they click on the Save button.  There is a simple error message says "The server was unable to save the form at this time, please try again" - does not seem to be much helpful and have researched solutions online (including activating a user control module under site settings) but does not seem to resolve the issue as well


Wonder if this is caused by my permission settings? I have break away the permission settings for my list from my SharePoint site and have granted it to my user access solely on the list itself only.


Appreciate for all the inputs, thanks!
