  1. Support for enterprise content types is SharePoint site designs.

    Currently, the site design schema does not support an action to add enterprise content types. It would great to not have to use the content type syndication hub. We should be able to apply a enterprise content type to one or more site collections via site designs.

  2. Change Default Sharing Setting for All New Team Sites to 'Anyone with Link'.

    I have the default sharing setting in the SharePoint and OneDrive and Office365 Admin Centers to 'Share with Anyone with the Link' when a new Team Site is created. However, when I try to share a document on a new site, that option is grayed out and an Admin has to go into the SP Admin Center to change this. I am requesting that this bug be fixed, so you can share with Anyone with the Link, as set in the Admin Center settings.

  3. Site Manager Copy/Move sites

    Hi,
    I just find this: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/work-with-site-content-and-structure-30fcaad9-02b1-4347-8b03-e1ccc5a4c19f#bm4
    (Important)
    Microsoft means serieously that will replace the Site manager functions like Copy/Move sites by Copy/Move files?
    This is like replacing car by skates.
    Is there any reasonable cause? Or with Sharepoint online slow functions is now comming new era of slow and no functions?

    I would like to know this, since support of Sharepoin in our company is getting down with every new update (its getting towards XP - Vista story)

    Thank you

    Ivan

  4. Developer Site Template - Better Wikis, Git Repositories, and Code Sharing

    Currently we have communication sites which my business partners love. I however struggle with getting my development team to love SharePoint sites. It would be nice if there was a template for developer focused sites. For example a way to create API swaggers. A Git Repository that could be used to connect to Azure, Azure DevOps, other Software development platforms.

    Also the creation of wikis and tagging similar to Confluence sites would be nice. As a program manager I would love to have my program documentation as well as my developer documentation all on a single platform.

  5. view formatting container

    JSON View formatting looks different in a webpart compared to in the list/library.

    Can we have access to the container HTML element for the list rather than just to the individual rows? (when writing the JSON)

    When creating a grid of floating tiles, they do not align properly when the viewed as a webpart. They are displayed in a jagged stair-case. It works fine when looking at the list/library.

    I would attached an image but that doesn't seem to be in this site's feature set :(

  6. find way to convert existing publishing pages to modern, having over a thousand pages makes it unreasonable to switch to modern experience.

    Content from publishing pages exist in database, should be way to leverage this to convert existing publishing pages to modern experience. Consider customers with thousands of existing publishing pages - not just oh start over with new communications site.

  7. UI support for Site Designs and Site Scripts

    All the management occurs programmatically. It would be great to manage Site Designs directly from the new SharePoint admin center. E. g.: Manage scope, Set default design, Site Designs and Site Scripts overview etc.

  8. view format comment

    Please change the JSON parser for view and column formatting to use JSON with comments. I'd like to make a few notes in the JSON and at this point I'd have to create a hidden field to do it.

  10. JSON to be able to set Layout and Background

    With site designs for modern there are a lot of options available however the ability to change Layout to 'Standard' or 'Compact' and the Background to say 'Strong' is lacking.

    Can these please be made available?

  11. Infopath forms abilities to SharePoint forms

    SharePoint forms
    If you're like most InfoPath developers, you learned InfoPath to interact with SharePoint. SharePoint is great, but the default forms are a bit pedestrian and don't allow for customization or business logic without InfoPath. Well, integrate all of InfoPath desktop into the default forms. Power Apps is not my answer, make SharePoint Forms better.

  13. SharePoint Site Design extremely slow

    Applying site designs can be fast sometimes, but most of the times it is extremely slow………
    Even the simplest Site Designs (creating a few additional document libraries) takes ages to complete.

  14. Transfer "Edit columns in form" in a site script

    The same way we can specify which columns will be in each view in a list section of a script. We should be able to choose which columns will be by default in the edit form ("Edit columns in form" NOT power app)
    We create sites with Site designs and this can be very helpful.

  16. Add single spacing option to SharePoint modern form

    It appears that there is no option to control space settings within a form. The default seems to be 1.5 spacing instead of single spaced. This is problematic when emailing a form as the text appears wider spaced than it needs to be. The GUI should include a spacing option.

  18. List column formatting - extend this to the Sharepoint web part

    IN SHORT: Can List Column Formatting be extended to the Sharepoint List web part?

    LONGER VERSION
    Column Formatter was released in Q4 2017, and it has done excellent things for small businesses who thrive on good business processes. Personally we use it to show "lead urgency" for incoming work, which is really simple formatting, as well as more complex rules, e.g. our deadlines traffic light system takes about 7 fields (project status plus multiple deadline fields for different stages of the project) and presents a nice colour-coded "next deadline" that gives us a visual overview of all projects' stages.

    BUT…

  19. Enhance addSPField with internalName property as required

    If the displayName property is not specified, the internal name will be based on the display name. An internal name should always be a required property.

  20. Please add custom css capability for list form body json

    Hi,

    While header and footer allows custom CSS, this is missing in body section which is forcing us to opt for external solutions. Please allow "style" attribute in the body section too.

    Thanks.
