  3. Add a querystring to disable data-interception

    As the data-interception propagate is getting more and more deployed in the out of the box components (navigation, quick links, ...). The idea is to add or querystring to the target URL set on the navigation or in the Link (in quick links) so the target page ignores the data-interception when loading (like the data-interception was off).
    Example:
    - I add a link in navigation to [Site]/Lists/SomeList/AllItems.aspx?DataInterception=Off
    - The allitems.aspx page (the view page) will ignore the data received from the source page and load completely.

    It's really needed, this data-interception is causing a lot of problems in the navigation…

  5. SPO anchor links need to work after authentication is completed

    Microsoft's engineering team confirmed that after authentication is completed and redirected to the original SharePoint URL, the fragment (#anything-after-the-hash) part in original URL is missing due to its current design. This is part of a browser limitation as the browser itself doesn't send the URL fragment to the server.

  7. Allow Visual Studio to debug SharepPoint-Online-Apps

    Moin Moin.

    Can You, please add the functionality used manually in "https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/use-app-catalog" to Visual-Studio's deployment-logic, in order to acheive, that a debugging-session for a SharepPoint-Apps can be used with SharepPoint-Online.
    It effectively means, that Visual-Studio is deploying the app "manually" using the HTTP-Api the browser is using, and then starting the debug-session with the correct Visual-Studio-Browser/User-Debugging-Context.

        Tschüß,
    
    Michael.

  8. Allow List / Library Layouts (Compact, Tile) to be active by default and/or via URL

    Currently users can switch their View layout manually between List, Compact List, and Tiles. However, developers customizing a View cannot set any of those as default, nor can we direct a user to a particular Layout.

    This request is for any or all of the following 3 modifications:


    • Allow one of the Layouts to be set as default so visitors see the correct layout without having to be directed to switch the layout manually (which, by the way, users never do anyway). One super convenient way to accomplish this would be to detect the use of "tileProps" in the View…

  12. Option to remove social media functionality from Sharepoint

    This is only really useful if everybody in the company uses it. I'd rather Sharepoint developers spent their time on something useful, like a functional search engine.

    For example, I look at my Sharepoint profile probably once a year. If someone posts something I need to see there, I'm not going to see it for months.

    This overlaps with social media functionality on Teams and numerous other products. Remove it from Sharepoint. No one in their right mind is going to seriously use it.

  15. Add the css for 'text-overflow' in Column Formatter.

    I want to truncate the string which crosses the width and add '...' at the end. Currently I am able to do that except for adding the '...'. It can be done if the column formatter supports 'text-overflow: ellipsis'.

  16. Reliable CDN for SharePoint assets (e.g. sp.js)

    Not sure if this is one for the Dev team but, it would be really nice to have a reliable CDN where we can reference SharePoint assets like sp.js etc.

    It seems that when using for example the following in an extension config.json:
    "path": "https://static.sharepointonline.com/bld/_layouts/15/16.0.8824.1211/SP.js",

    That older versions are not maintained and are deleted (randomly without warning, yay).

  19. DITA authoring using SharePoint and Word Master/Sub Documents

    DITA authoring is used primarily for documentation, when multiple authors are working on different components, often with an approval workflow. It is very useful for producing agendas and minutes for government or board meetings, technical documentation of various sorts.
    DITA environments have two key parts: a library of document "components", and a container for a "map" that collects and orders those components into a publishable document. The final product is output to various formats, typically PDF, e-Book or html.
    There are already DITA authoring tools that use MS Word as the base authoring platform (Quark, DITA Exchange), because most authors…
