  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).

        • Enable ListItem SystemUpdate via REST

          Allow REST clients to update list items a la SystemUpdate. That is, REST clients should be able to update list item metadata without creating a new version and without affecting system columns like authors and timestamps. The same idea for CSOM was recently implemented and I'm puzzled why the REST API is always left behind.
          The CSOM idea:

          • 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.

            • Field Customizer Evolution: Forms, Quick Edit Mode

              Please, consider next enhancements to Field Customizer (and Modern List UI):
              1. implement modern Quick Edit mode
              2. Add "edit" mode to field customizer
              3. Make field customizers (both view and edit modes) applicable on forms, panels, quick edit mode, etc.

              • BUG: Online workbench doesn't reflect the theme colors of the parent web properly

                There is a bug in the Online Workbench that you are not able to test theming on your web parts when the following two themes will be used:
                * Dark Yellow
                * Dark Blue

                As documented in the Issue on GitHub https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1064

                This would be really beneficial for testing web parts and how they look like when different themes will be used.

                  • External CSS and Source Maps during development

                    During Development debugging CSS can be hard because all style resource are directly embedded on the page. Whenever I like to inspect a particular element it point to the workbench HTML somewhere and the origin of the CSS definitions are located.

                    My suggestion is to treat CSS/SASS files during development in workbench as external files with source maps that point to the original SASS file rather then directly embed the CSS.

                    In production the behaviour can stay the same.

                    I think this feature would be beneficial for many developers.

                    • Column Formatting String Operations

                      Add additional string options to Declarative Customization Column Formatting. Specfically:

                      Unary Operations:
                      length
                      toLowerCase()
                      toUpperCase()
                      trim

                      Binary Operations:
                      indexOf
                      lastIndexOf
                      endsWith
                      startsWith

                      Additional Operations:
                      replace
                      substring
                      padStart
                      padEnd

                      The order of operands, the return value, and the functionality would all match their JavaScript equivalents.

                      Having these would greatly increase the power of Column Formatting both in terms of string formatting but also with powerful conditional formatting. Without these basic operations, Column Formatting is still pretty limited.

                      • Provide a ChangeType for Data Governance label modifications in the Change Log

                        Currently any application of a Data Governance label to a List Item has only a SystemUpdate Change associated with it, even if the Label was applied manually by a user. When trying to detect a change in Label, this necessitates the inspection of every List Item following a SystemUpdate Change to see whether or not the _ComplianceTag field has changed.
                        Ideally, we would be able to make a ChangeQuery that did not include all SystemUpdates, but did include changes which involved the modification of a Data Governance Label.

                        • 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"

                                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!

                              • Allow to use Office UI Fabric Icons and other fonts as Command Set icons

                                It would be great if we are able to use font icons instead of url to images for Command Set extensions buttons icons.
                                This allow 3d party extensions look more aligned with 1st party (same style, same icon color)

                                    Sub: SPFX Extension - Subsite link override - Modern Experience

                                    In classic experience, we are redirecting the users to a provider hosted site request form instead of out of the box site request page(/_layouts/15/newsbweb.aspx) using custom action. We are trying to create a SPFX Application Customizer to replace this functionality by getting the Subsite button element by name and attaching a click event which will redirect the users to the provider hosted site request form. But the logic is not 100% working as there is delay in rendering the dropdown values on new button click.

                                    What is the right way…

                                    • Allow non-Typescript option in generator-sharepoint

                                      Although Typescript is perfectly fine, some organizations do not want to spend time acclimating their processes around it when they are comfortable writing in es2015 with webpack and normal linting.

                                      Some MS Pros even take it out after generating new projects! https://medium.com/@Mizzle__Mo/replace-typescript-with-es2015-for-sharepoint-framework-applications-4385d9071c4c

                                      It would be great if this could be an option in the generator-sharepoint. I'd be happy to venture a PR if you were to make the generator available on github.

                                      • 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.

                                          Provide a method of setting composite index on a custom list via rest APIs. Currently, we can set single index on custom list fields. Setting composite index is only available via UI.
