Column formatting is a new Office 365 feature. We’ll begin rolling this feature out by the end of October.
This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 20506.
How does this affect me?
The column formatting pane allows users (inside modern lists and document libraries) to customize the look and feel of columns in list views by specifying a text format called JSON. This JSON text can either be written from scratch, or copied from our documentation and tweaked to fit the specific scenario. To access the column formatting pane, users can do it through the dropdown menu associated with a column in a list view, and click “Format this column.” Permission to add and edit columns in the associated list is required to use this feature.
We’ll be gradually rolling this out to First Release customers by the end of October, and the roll out will be completed by the end of November.
