  1. 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…

    • Modern list experience: Fix filtering for Managed Metadata columns

      the Sharepoint modern list experience is great, but incorrect filtering implementation for Managed Metadata columns prevents us from moving on to this new look.
      Symptom: when creating a list Filter based on a "Managed Metadata" column, the behavior is as follows:
      if the term set on which the Managed Metadata column is based on, contains more than 20 items, the user will have the ability to filter only on the first 20 items via checkboxes. All items in the term set beyond the 20th will be unavailable for filtering. This is because there is no ability to provide a filtering…

      • Column Formatting String Operations

        Add additional string options to Declarative Customization Column Formatting. Specfically:

        Unary Operations:
        length
        toLowerCase()
        toUpperCase()
        trim

        Binary Operations:
        indexOf
        lastIndexOf
        endsWith
        startsWith

        Additional Operations:
        replace
        substring
        padStart
        padEnd

        The order of operands, the return value, and the functionality would all match their JavaScript equivalents.

        Having these would greatly increase the power of Column Formatting both in terms of string formatting but also with powerful conditional formatting. Without these basic operations, Column Formatting is still pretty limited.

        • Allow the ability to know when a cooment has been made on a modern page so that a flow can be attached to it.

          At the moment it is not possible to know when a comment has been made on a Modern UI Page. If that comment is blasphemous, it will need to be removed asap. A way of doing this would be to attach a flow to the page so that when a comment is made an appropriate person can be notified. That person can then take appropriate action on the comment, including removing it.

          • Modern Filter webpart

            It would be nice, if we have modern filter webparts as similar as Classic pages (like Query Filter Webpart)

            • Column Formatting Alt Attribute

              Add the ability to specify the Alt attribute in Declarative Customization Column Formatting.

              This is a required attribute for img elements to provide alternate text for an image if the image cannot be displayed or if a user is using a screen reader.

              • Spell Checker in Wiki Pages

                Currently, the Spell Check option is only available on the the Publishing Sites. It would be great if we have this spell checker option in the SharePoint Site Collection Wiki pages without activating Publishing features.

                Thanks & Regards,
                Bhanu

                • (Bug) Get which documents are external Sharing via search working

                  Before December, when you shared with an external user with email address, it added the user as a person part of your Active Directory. Now when you share with an external user, a Sharing Link is created and the person signs in with a code.

                  It used to be that when a document was Shared externally, a managed property called "ViewableByExternalUsers=TRUE" it would bring back document shared externally. Since the new Sharing Links, this managed property doesn't seem to pick up that a document is shared externally.

                  Also on the https://[tenant].sharepoint.com//_layouts/15/siteanalytics.aspx?view=19 used to display any documents that was externally shared.…

                    • Cacluate total values

                      When on SharePoint Online, and coming up to the sum in the data list view. Example: one column has item sales price, another has quantity sold, another has cost to make, last sales tax. I like to make a column that will tell me the profit of that item for that day of everyday for that month. So when I set the sum for the total field, it would actually some me, instead of it being blank and I have to go through a 12 step process to view the totals.

                      • Provide option to convert existing site to communication site

                        For customers who are trying to completely modernize their large SharePoint implementations, it should be possible to convert an existing site collection to use the communication site template.

                        It can simply be a powershell command that applies all the features/etc. it needs.

                        It doesn't need to change existing content, just apply the styles and create the typical landing page for a communication site.

                        It'll make it easier to adopt upcoming features (like adding sites to hubs, etc.)

                        • Enable Communication Site Pages to work with custom Site Columns and Content Types

                          If communication sites are meant to replace the classic "publishing" pages, site developers will need to be able to make use of custom Site Columns and Content Types as we have in the past. Currently developers can add custom elements to the Site Pages library in which Communication Sites pages are created, but those custom elements do not display when the pages are put in edit mode or the form to edit the page's properties is displayed.

                            • Apply the same process when creating documents in libraries

                              Depending on the way it is performed, depending on library settings, depending on browser file creation in library is always a different process. I think it would be nice for end users if the process would be the same all the time:
                              - ask the user for a file name
                              - if mandatory metadata (without default values): display metadata form
                              - then open document (in client or web application)
