  1. Allow extending SharePoint Admin Center using SPFx

    It would be nice to have the ability to extend some of the functionality in the SharePoint Admin Center. Specifically, the ability to deploy SharePoint Framework Web Parts into the Admin Center (via an App Page?). Currently, the community builds lots of SPFx Web Parts to fill the gaps in the Modern UX.

    Such Web Parts include:
    Theme Manager
    Site Design Studio/Manager

    These are SPFx solutions that have been built to help better manage our environments through a UX experience (as there isn't one via First Party). It would be nice to have a centralized location where these SPFx solutions…

  2. Expose REST Endpoints in the SharePoint UI

    Here’s an idea I had a while ago based on a conversation I had with some of the other SharePoint MVPs: expose the REST endpoints and documentation right in the UI for those who have the appropriate permissions. It could be a little icon at the bottom of any page where there are relevant end points. All content is security trimmed anyway, so no one is going to see an endpoint they can’t use (though if they can fathom the docs they can know what endpoints there are available).

    Think about it:

    You’re on a List Settings page, and you…

  3. Add support to hide List View Command Set buttons

    In the classic experience it's possible to hide ribbon buttons and menu options in the ECB. In the modern UI this currently isn't possible.
    Please add support to also hide OOTB List View Command Set buttons and ECB items in the modern UI.

    In the Classic view this could be done by a Custom Action:

    <CustomAction
    Id="RemoveRibbonButtonLibrary"
    Location="CommandUI.Ribbon"
    RegistrationId="101"
    RegistrationType="List">>
    <CommandUIExtension>
    <CommandUIDefinitions>
    <CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.Library.Actions.ExportToSpreadsheet" />
    </CommandUIDefinitions>
    </CommandUIExtension>
    </CustomAction>

    But this currently doesn't work for the Modern UI.

  4. Azure Event Grid integration for all Office 365 platforms (SharePoint, Outlook, Dynamics 365 etc)

    All Office 365 platforms, starting with SharePoint should be integrated with & emit Azure Event Grid events! Imagine a user creates or views a file in SharePoint Online and an appropriate Event Grid event is emitted and subscribers notified. Or imagine an Office 365 email is sent or received an appropriate Event Grid event is emitted and subscribers notified etc.

    Current solutions require polling change logs which is extremely inefficient, does not scale well & suffers from throttling issues.

    The detail of events emitted should be configurable so that all or partial meta-data is supported.

  5. Provide an option to hide webparts in modern webpart toolbox

    Please give us the option to hide webparts on a site level from the webpart toolbox. E.g. if I don't want my users to use the twitter webpart or any other custom or OOTB webparts. Currently there is no way to control what webpart is visibile on what sites. We could do this in classic by adding/removing webparts from the webpart gallery. Some webparts just don't make sense on certain sites. Some webparts don't work on certain sites. There are so many reasons, this is just a must-have!

  6. JSON Formatting: regional settings with date

    When using @now to format views/columns using JSON the date is taken as the US style (mm/dd/yyyy) regardless of the regional settings of the tenant. It would be useful if it either uses the date format of the tenant, or allows the user to specify the date format. For more details of the problem see here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/msonline/en-US/21712788-fafa-4898-9cee-897d1b3afb88/modern-list-view-formatting-with-uk-dates?forum=onlineservicessharepoint

  7. Allow external accounts to interact with Graph endpoints listed here-https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/concepts/permissions_r

    Enable Graph endpoints for external users (Microsoft accounts). More info here on the restriction-
    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/concepts/permissions_reference

    This may require some more security controls for the admins as well.

  10. Support excel like functions in view formatting.

    Currently list formatting supports excel like expressions. It would be nice it it also supports excel like functions like IsNull or IsBlank.

  11. Add more actions to rowFormatter schema

    Maybe this isn't the right place but:
    Consider adding a few more actions to the rowFormatter's customAction property. Currently we have:
    "defaultClick",
    "executeFlow",
    "share",
    "delete",
    "editItemProps"

    In addition to these we could use the following to round out basic list/library operations in custom views:
    "checkIn"
    "checkOut"
    "openVersionHistory" - should do exactly what the option does for documents/list items
    "publish"
    "alertMe"

    View formatting is awesome, really great user experience and a very easy to support light-weight dev solution, so let's finish it up!

  13. Need more Number Formatting options for SharePoint List columns

    For columns set as Number in SharePoint Lists, please add the same number formats as found in Excel (General, Integer, Currency, etc.). Currently I have ID numbers showing with commas, and it's annoying. The only workaround seems to create ANOTHER column with a calculated field. But this has been complained about on various forums across the internet. Please add this. :)

  14. Let Sharepoint CDN deliver JSON files

    Currently the Sharepoint CDN does not deliver JSON file formats for private or public, even though it is 'whitelisted' as allowed file extension.
    We configured the CDN following the official sites, which even shows an example how to enable the delivery of JSON files. However, it is not working.

    Other file types like JS,TXT or others are delivered without problem. When querying a JSON file though, the server responds with a 404.

  15. Workflow Contenty Type bug - "No SharePoint properties found"

    Like a number of other users who've reported on the forums, all of our Workflows that use a Content Type are broken: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/14d98357-24fa-4038-a97c-8c02c8022ca0/word-quotno-sharepoint-properties-foundquot?forum=sharepointgeneral&prof=required

    Microsoft has recommended we post here, although this seems more like a bug fix than a feature request.
    That said, if you like SharePoint Workflows to work with Microsoft Office, then please vote for this bug fix!

  17. Set Custom Home Page

    A useful feature would be to change the SharePoint collection home page to a subsite. There is the option to Make Homepage for the site under the Page tab however this doesn't work.

  19. Extend SPListItem[string fieldInternalName] to use Internal as well as Display Name

    Users have the ability to change the display name, which could then have the unintended consequence that they break code in a web part or elsewhere because the code is looking for the field based on its display name that has now changed.

    Users can;t change the internal name though. So it would make sense and be a more safe way to program web parts etc if we had a simple way to get the field value based on the internal name of the field.

    Eg a developer creates a field named FinYear, then after it is created they change…

  20. Integrating Azure AD user profiles to SharePoint Online through People Search Results page

    There is a need for a mechanism to integrate Azure AD user profiles directly to SharePoint pages. Currently, the sync happens through Exchange Online. It takes around 72 hours for the changes to reflect in SharePoint. If there is a method to display the user profile details directly in SharePoint through the People Search Results page, it can eliminate the delay in displaying the changes through the sync process. This can be helpful while designing Employee Directory or Staff Directory for the organization.
