  1. Extensions: Property Pane / SideBar Placeholder (Right)

    Please provide a well-known placeholder for the property pane or better a similar placeholder that let us create a sidebar.

    Having this ability would let us create powerful sidebars/toolbox extensions. This would be a super cool enhancement!

    • Allow calling an HTTP-triggered Flow after installing SPFx solution in a site

      When creating sites using a site design (recipe), one of the available verbs is calling an HTTP-triggered Flow to perform some additional configuration on the newly created site.

      When installing SPFx solutions in a site, we should similarly be able to specify an HTTP-triggered Flow to be called as a part of the installation process. This would not only allow developers to provision configuration beyond what's currently supported with Feature XML, but also create a consistent development experience across the different workloads (site designs vs. SPFx).

        • SpFx Hide page until WebParts Load

          Simply hide the page canvas until all SpFx WebPart promises have resolved for modern sites

          This would conceivably
          1. Improve page load performance by not forcing the browser to display several loading gifs/fading animations at the same time
          2. Improve user experience by displaying a complete page to the user rather than the page "jumping" constantly during the first 3-10 seconds of loading
          3. Allow developers to add minor CSS updates to the page prior to render using the SharePoint Framework without noticeable "jumping"

          • Add additional permissions to GraphHttpClient

            With the graph GQL gone, having this "easy" method to query Graph API directly from SharePoint when already authenticated is a huge must have.

            For example I'd ask priority on the permissions that let you fetch Recent Files, Trending Files, Trending People, and Planner tasks for the current user. Those make the most sense to be featured on intranet home pages. We do this currently (and it is quite messy with adal.js, particular when it comes to token refreshes), but has lots of end user value.

            I have 4 custom web parts today in a SEWP. One gets recent documents,…

              Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. This is planned to go live late 2017 or early 2018. Tenant administrator can grant additional scopes to be exposed to the SharePoint Framework solutions. This was announced in the Ignite 2017.

                Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion. We are looking into closely on the input from the community around this and more specifically around the needed scenarios for the placeholders so that we could also potentially provide also specific customizers based on your requests – rather than just having an empty placeholder. Stay tuned!

                • Extensions: Support Development in Local Workbench

                  Today, application extensions in SPFx (command sets, application customizers & field customizers) can't be tested within either the local or SharePoint Online hosted workbench. This is a bummer and a big step backwards to such a cool aspect to the development story with SPFx.

                  I get that you need a list to work with, but at a minimum, the workbench could have a static list with static data and no other functionality for us to test the customizations on.

                  My wish is that Microsoft adds support to the workbench for extensions before GA.

                  • Warn when using preview SharePoint Framework features

                    The latest version of the SharePoint Framework Yeoman generator contains a mix of features that are GA and preview features (for example connecting to MS Graph, web part connections, extensions). Whether the generated solution can be run in production depends on the features used to build the web part. With that, when bundling the project, the toolchain should warn of any experimental features being used in the project which would prevent the solution from being deployed to production tenants. This would help developers avoid deploying solutions depending on experimental features to production tenants, only to see the deployment fail.

                    • Give opportunity to remove or deactivate standard SPFx client webparts

                      It would be great to have the possibility to remove or deactivate certain standard client webparts like the "yammer feed".

                      Many companies don't even use yammer and it would just confuse users. Or at least have the possibility that the yammer client side webpart is only shown, when yammer is activated for the tenant.

                      This is also explained in stack overflow:

                      https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/225552/is-it-possible-to-deactivate-remove-uninstall-a-default-client-side-webpart

                      • Ability to add full width web parts to pages

                        The full width section on communication pages only allows the hero and images web part. It would be great if we could deploy custom full width web parts that can be added to this section.

                        • Column CommandSet Extension

                          An additional SPFx Extension to support adding a command (menu item) to the Column dropdown of a Modern ListView.

                          It could be configured very similarly to the field customizer extensions. Something like:

                          columnCommandSets={"FieldName":{"id":"columncommandsetID","location","someLocationValue","properties":{}}}

                          Then for location (similar to the ListView Command Set extensions) a few locations could be provided:
                          SortSection
                          FilterSection
                          GroupBySection
                          ColumnSettingsMenu

                          Within the Column CommandSet Extension itself you would have these methods:

                          onListViewUpdated(event: IColumnCommandSetListViewUpdatedParameters): void

                          onExecute(event: IColumnCommandSetExecuteEventParameters): void

                          The standard methods of onDispose, onInit, onProvideServices should also be included.

                          interface IColumnCommandSetListViewUpdatedParameters {
                          /**
                          * The currently selected ListView rows, at the time when the event occurred.
                          */
                          readonly…

                              Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that this is absolutely in our roadmap and we are planning to address this request in future. Good to have though also the vote counts, so that we understand the demand around the request, which helps on prioritizing our internal work.

                            • 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…

                              • Field Customizer: Ability to call ootb render method

                                Allow to call out of the box render for cell in custom field customizer.

                                Use case:
                                based on user permissions render out of the box LinkTitle cell or custom copmonent with additional logic.

                                This scenario is needed for all types of fields that are rendered as complicated HTML, not just text (LinkTitle, User or Group fields, etc.)

                                • CSOM .NET async support

                                  CSOM for both Silverlight and JavaScript have an ExecuteQueryAsync method. This is not available for the .NET version.

                                  Currently, ExecuteQuery blocks the current thread and in the context of an ASP.Net application this is very resource intensive - the request thread cannot be used to service other threads whilst ExecuteQuery is waiting for a response.

                                  ASP.Net applications only have a small number of threads proportionate to the number of cores and the lack of async support makes it very difficult to write SharePoint provider-hosted add-ins capable of handling large numbers of concurrent requests.

                                  • Provide method for extending out of box SPFX web Parts

                                    Much like the classic SSOM model of extending OOB web parts, provide a way (or open source them ;-)) the SPFX web parts to allow Devs to build upon what you have already built.

                                    Its a bit old school, but has value in providing Devs a way to extend existing web parts leverage them and tweak them according to specific requirements. Perhaps with a change caveat that if you change it does not update our custom ones based upon it.

                                    • 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.

                                        • Allow users to move content easily to new folders or subfolders created.

                                          Please allow users to move content around easily. It is a bit frustrating having to redownload images or other content onto my computer, just to reupload it to the new folder.
