  2. 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. :)

  3. Column formatting for Lookup Columns

    There needs to be an easy way to format Lookup columns the same way regular columns can be formatted. I tried putting in JSON, but it keeps giving showing [OBJECT] [OBJECT] in the column.

  4. 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.

  5. view formatting support click to call using href=tel:

    Expand the SharePoint View formatting schema to support click to call URLs. This would allow a url such as <a href='tel:555-555-1212'>555-555-1212</a> to be created using SharePoint's json view formatting. Today 'tel:' protocol is not supported. The following is an example of the requested syntax to create a click to call url from data in a "Phone" column.

            {
    
    &quot;elmType&quot;: &quot;a&quot;,
    &quot;txtContent&quot;: &quot;[$Phone]&quot;,
    &quot;attributes&quot;: {
    &quot;target&quot;: &quot;_blank&quot;,
    &quot;href&quot;: &quot;=&#39;tel:&#39; + [$Phone]&quot;
    }
    }

  8. file sharing inconsistent across browsers

    Hi!

    I have just setup a brand new office 365 developer account and I am playing around with it to make some tests.

    One of the things I'm trying is:


    • create a plain html file with an image source to a random online image


    • share a link


    • open the link without being authenticated


    behavior:


    • google chrome: shows html and image without errors


    • firefox: shows html and image without errors


    • edge: shows a blank page (document not rendered), no console errors



    • internet explorer: shows the page without image and with a console error (note that the console error appears regardless of…

  9. docker

    Since the SPFx version is evolving in fast pace, won't it be good idea to release a official docker image for each version ?

  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. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    Prior to Modern Pages, we used to connect web parts to send data from one part to another. E.g., select a document from a document library and display a preview of it in a Page Viewer web part. It's so annoying that SharePoint no longer has that feature. Modern Pages seem to be less Modern than they should be. It's like a beginner's web page instead of something you can actually do real work in.

    You should be happy to hear that we are working on this capability and it’s already supported with 3rd party web parts. More details will be released using our guidance and social media channels during the first quarter of 2019.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. Custom List, version history filter by column name

    When review the version history in a list it good be nice to have the possibility to filter by column name. It would be like a kind of track changes by column.

  20. 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…
