I'm dealing with an issue where two or more people are not able to work in a modern list at the same time. The SPO list that I'm working with has a few text fields, one choice field, one date field, and is filled with a few hundred rows.

If a user is editing an item (ID=111) and another user goes into the list and updates and saves a different item (ID=222), the fist user has their choice field selection reset to the default value.

Steps to reproduce
Create new Team Site
Create a list (modern exp.)
Add a choice column
Add some choices
Add several items to the list

Open two browser sessions
Browser 1: edit a list item using the quick launch panel and select a choice value (don’t save)
Browser 2: edit a different item, select a choice value and save your changes

Result (wait ~30 seconds)
Browser 1: selected choice value is reset before the user has a chance to save

Is there anything that can be done to fix this or is reverting to classic SharePoint or creating a PowerApp the only option?

  • What does "selected choice value is reset before the user has a chance to save" mean? Which browser you are using? Modern library or classic library? Quick edit or edit form? – Emily Du - MSFT May 19 at 10:20
  • @EmilyDu-MSFT 1) It's outlined in the scenario above. 2) Edge, FF, Chrome 3) Both modern list and library experience 4) Quick edit panel and edit form in the modern experience. – Taco_Buffet May 19 at 14:57
  • Have you opened a support case in the M365 admin center? If this is an issue with the service, there isn't much we'll be able to do to help you with your question. – Trevor Seward May 29 at 0:09
  • I dont think this is a concurrancy issue. It sounds like a rerender of the page. This is quite common in the modern experience. – Johan Brännmar May 29 at 6:39
