SharePoint lists and libraries – improved image columns

From Microsoft Corporation

MC219652, Stay Informed, Published date: Jul 31, 2020

Updated August 19, 2020: To ensure the best possible experience for our users, we are delaying some of our deployments to reduce the amount of change flowing into the services. Please see the updated roll-out timeline below.

We’re introducing a new Image column type to lists and libraries. Using this column, list and library users will be able to add a single image file from their computer to an item in a list or a library.

When this will happen
We will be gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release customers at the end of August (previously early August) and expect to complete the rollout to all by mid-September (previously mid-August).

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 64872.How this will affect your organization

List and library users will see a new column type called Image when adding new columns.

Once an Image column is added to a list or library, users can:

  • Add an image using the list or library form.
  • View, replace, or remove the image when viewing the item or file properties in the form.
Upload image

When users are browsing the list on a mobile device, they will be able to upload an image from the mobile device simply by taking a photo with their camera.
What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify list and library users, update your user training, and prepare your help desk.
