  1. Provide clear support statement for SPFx with IE

    Right now there is no clear statement regarding the supportability of IE with SPFx. Since IE 11 is still supported for O365 and SharePoint Online, customers assume that it is supported with IE as well.
    Currently SPFx is impossible to use with IE because of performance issues and very bad memory leaks in IE. The more content and web parts are on a modern page the worse it gets. Thus, I suggest that you either fix those issues, or make a clear statement that SPFx is not supported with IE anymore. This would really help customers in making their decisions.

    • Create SPFx webparts inside or from another SPFx webpart or extension

      As described in https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/3110

      Untill SPFx version 1.4.1 there was an option to use the ClientSideWebPartManager to create webparts from another webpart. Currently we are working some time already on a custom 'widgetzone' with an easy dragging and dropping grid layout (Muuri, https://haltu.github.io/muuri/), user zones and a lot of other awesome stuff which isn't supported by the default SharePoint grid. (which is off course understandable)

      Currently I am not seeing another path to make this possible, so for now we have to stick on the SPFx 1.4.1 release. I do understand this is something not many companies will encounter,…

      • SPFx Key/Value Pair Properties that support Read/Write

        Provide a SharePoint Framework mechanism/API that allows for Site or Site Collection Read/Write of Key/Value pair properties for use in SPFx related configuration and customizations. Similar to how the property bag was used in classic.

        One use case is for storing configurable properties or even user personalization configurations written and read by an SPFx solution.

        This is one of many uses cases that would make this feature valuable, so in addition to your vote, please feel free to comment with additional ways in which this feature could provide additional value.

          • When creating an SPFx Extension for a custom header, provide a configurable property that allows the composite header to be hidden

            When developing a SharePoint Framework Extension to display a custom header and/or footer, the SharePoint Composite Header can be very redundant to the custom header.

            The Composite Header (css classname is 'ms-compositeHeader'), is what SharePoint provide out of the box and includes the square site logo, site name and navigation.

            When creating your own custom header that includes all of these things and possibly more, the existence of the Composite Header is redundant and can be confusing for users...(Ex: redundant navigation).

            While CSS can be used to hide this, such a technique is not playing within the rules of only…

            • Ability to deploy MS Flow Definition through .sppkg, similiar to how we can provision list and libraries.

              The deployment of SPFx components along with associated list and attached flow can be done with-in a single package so that minimum exclusive configuration is required for any developed solution.

              • API for "Create Team from Template" with Site Design

                We can do templating on SharePoint, through Site Designs and Site Scripts. We now also have the option to "Create a Microsoft Teams from Template".
                Unfortunately, both do not work together. We either have a templated SharePoint site with a generic Teams or a templated Teams with generic SharePoint site.

                I would love the possibility to combine both templating options. Preferrably with an API from day 1.
                This would give us an end to end templating scenario, where we can create preconfigured Teams with a preconfigured SharePoint site. (In the future, hopefully with a preconfigured Planner etc as well ;)…

                • API support for followed sites

                  There's an undocumented API (https://tenant.sharepoint.com/_vti_bin/homeapi.ashx/ ) to follow sites and query data around those concepts. For corporate intranet scenarios, we often want to present the data a different way, surfacing native SharePoint capabilities. In order to add a "follow" button on an SPFX web part, we'd need an API to access that.

                    • Enterprise Deployment of SharePoint Framework Apps in an On Premise Platform

                      There is currently no good way to do enterprise level automated deployments of an SPFX addin into a SharePoint 2016 on Premise environment..

                      Consider a case where there are 1000 site collections and we would need to deploy an SPFX app to all sites automatically. Currently there is no way to perform this deployment in an automated fashion. It is not possible through powershell, csom, c# or in an administrative UI.

                      Having this ability would solve a large hole in capabilities with SharePoint Framework

                      • Office UI Fabric as web components

                        Office UI Fabric is an awesome library, which contains a lot of components and UI elements. It's a great library to build UI experiences for SharePoint and Office 365.
                        The downside is, that the most feature-rich version of the library built with React. If you want to use this library, you should use React without much options. There is Office UI Fabric JS out there, however it's not actively supported and developed as React one. Also it's difficult to reuse it in other frameworks. Office UI Fabric is must-have library in almost any SharePoint Framework solution.

                        SharePoint Framework has framework-agnostic…

                          It would be great to have an SPFx Extension for mega menu items, similarly to Field Customizer.
                          It will allow to add custom icons/pictures, change rendering to have, let's say title and description, and so on.

                          • Add support of SharePoint Framework solution packages to the AppSource Store

                            The latest adjustments in the Microsoft Store police allows store's add-in to works with conjunction with another add-in that is available only from the provider. The solution package (.sppkg) build with SharePoint framework is not classified as 'add-in'. Thus, we cannot add add-in in the Store that depend on SPFx solution and there is no way of delivering customizations to the modern page.
                            I can offered two options for solving this issue: 1) Adjustment of point 4.18 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/store/validation-policies#bk_4) from the Store policy to allows SPFx modifications 2) ApPSource store to start allowing .sppkg solution packages to be added

                              Outside of the standard areas of a Modern page that can be customized through apps (top placeholder, bottom placeholder, and web parts), we would love the ability to hide other parts of the page in order to achieve a customized look and feel.

                                  • Official documented Api needed to fetch modern Pages View count

                                    SharePoint modern pages Social bar View count apparently does not use Search Managed property ViewLifeTime or ViewsLifeTimeUniqueUsers. Fiddler traces shows that some Internal Apis are used to fetch modern pages social bar view count. It would great if Microsoft release Public documented API so that custom SPFx web parts/extension in need of modern page view count, could utilize the API

                                    • spfx-extension should allow customization of a CommandSet for a page.

                                      We'd like to add additional buttons/commands to the CommandMenu when a user is viewing pages in our SharePoint online tenant. I thought creating an extension using spfx would allow this but it appears limited only to ListViews.

                                      • Parameter for passing specific Site Design in Modern Team site Creation

                                        While creating the Modern communication site programmatically through Rest API/ Graph API there is a parameter available to choose the site design.

                                        Title = "title
                                        Description = "description
                                        AllowFileSharingForGuestUsers = false
                                        Classification = "classification"
                                        SiteDesign = CommunicationSiteDesign.Topic

                                        But while creating the modern team site programmatically there is no option to choose the Site Design, by default it is picking up the default Site Design. Even though we can create multiple site script and site design for Teams site, we are not able to specify a site design at the time of provisioning the Group.
                                        Is there any possibility to choose…

                                        • TypeScript is way out of date - bottomline - if your going to go open source... then go open source and keep up to date with the industry.

                                          TypeScript 2.4..... all of the major UI frameworks are in the Industry of UX are rocking 2.8 or higher, even 3. MS you have to stay ontop of this or SPFX will die on the vine.
