Cannot add options to player dropdowns in the player list

As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to take advantage of the existing CoreGui player list and add options to player dropdowns that can integrate with my experience’s features. I often need to create my own player list as a result of not being able to add options.

If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my development experience because I could make better use of the default player list in an experience and avoid overengineering a custom leaderboard just to add a few features. Additionally it could make a case for intuitive feature design such as easy party management in experiences reliant on matchmaking.

Expanding on a use case: matchmaking party management.

Consider the Avatar Context Menu. It is a feature rooted in the CoreGui that developers can interface with by using the relevant SetCore options. In a world lobby where players can walk around and interact with each other, I can use the ACM and include options to invite users to a party.

I wish to do the same with the player list. I may have a situation where it is neither convenient nor appropriate to use the ACM (ACM is proximity-based) and it may be more intuitive and UX-friendly for players to simply be able to access the existing leaderboard to click certain options I provide. Mocked example that replaces the examine feature in the dropdown:



Thanks for sharing your use case! We’ll share this with the player list team.
