  1. Support SharePoint 2016/2019 with .NET Standard APIs

    While the SharePoint online version is supported, we would like to see the SharePoint on-prem versions (SharePoint 2016/2019) supported with .NET standard CSOM APIs.

    https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329220-sharepoint-dev-platform/suggestions/16585795-support-net-core-with-csom
    ^ this only allows for SharePoint Online .NET Standard CSOM support.

    Many customers have significant investments and longer term roadmaps to get to SharePoint Online, but in the interim would like to start developing solutions that can be more easily converted to work in SharePoint Online along with being able to leverage the latest version of the Microsoft technology stack - that is growing the skillsets / toolset familiarity without waiting for longer term plans…

  2. Allow us to develop custom modern forms with custom edit experience

    We would like to be able to create an SPFx form and associate it with the List/Content type Disp, Edit, New form so that no matter how a user finds a list item (search, OOB list view, custom list view, etc) they see our custom form. Currently our only option is to create a completely disconnected experience in which we write a custom list view that points to custom form pages.

    Alternatively support field customizers with edit model to enable custom field editing experience.

  3. Share an ‘early warning’ from Microsoft of SharePoint Online changes that could potentially ‘break’ custom CSS

    Is there a way to obtain an ‘early warning’ from Microsoft of SharePoint Online changes that could potentially ‘break’ custom CSS rules and formatting.

    Currently, custom formatted SharePoint Online sites simply break when CSS changes are released that alter tags or divs that have been targeted.

  4. Provide support for LivePersonaCard in 3rd-party solutions

    The LivePersonaCard control, which renders a user's full profile card, can be loaded in a SPFx solution with LoadByComponentId. However, it is unclear whether this will be supported in the future.

    The PnP reusable controls has a Pull Request to provide developers with a LivePersonaCard control, but it is currently in holding pattern until it can be confirmed that LivePersonaCard (and LoadByComponentId) will be supported.

    Please empower 3rd party developers to build rich user-aware SharePoint solutions by providing solution for the live persona card.

    Cross-reference: https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-controls-react/pull/353

  5. Allow List / Library Layouts (Compact, Tile) to be active by default and/or via URL

    Currently users can switch their View layout manually between List, Compact List, and Tiles. However, developers customizing a View cannot set any of those as default, nor can we direct a user to a particular Layout.

    This request is for any or all of the following 3 modifications:


    • Allow one of the Layouts to be set as default so visitors see the correct layout without having to be directed to switch the layout manually (which, by the way, users never do anyway). One super convenient way to accomplish this would be to detect the use of "tileProps" in the View…

  6. Add MFA Support for .Net Standard CSOM

    With the new support of CSOM with .Net Standard we should be able to acquire tokens with accounts that have MFA enabled and not just regular accounts that don't have added security.

  8. Automate Daily News and Events Digest

    In an education environment we need to have an automated daily news and events digest.

    Would like to have included links to all News posts published in the last 3 days, along with an Events list of all calendar events in the upcoming 3-7 days.

    Students and Staff SHOULD NOT be able to unsubscribe.

  9. Modify gulp tasks to support node_modules in a parent directory

    As per described here https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/4853
    It would be very useful that gulp tasks support that the node_modules folder is in a parent directory, so that we can use pnpm shared-workspace-lockfile = true

  10. add filtering and sorting capability to quicklinks webpart

    Add filtering and sorting capability to Quicklinks webpart.

    I love the ability to filter and sort highlighted content, but do NOT like how it displays the content type icon over picture, the modified by user info, and the site name (redundant text noise). I love the simplicity of the quicklinks display of image and title, but need quicklink content to be filterable and sortable like you can in highlighted content.

    Add a way to customize how highlighted content is displayed (just image and title like the quicklink webpart does).

    or

    Please add the same filtering and sorting capability to the…

  11. ValidateUpdateListItem Permissions should not change value of a readonly column with contributor permissions

    Contributors should not be allowed to change readonly fields, they cannot with the classic update method.
    But I tested that if a user with contributor permissions uses a javascript / REST with ValideUpdatelistem, he/she is able to update a readonly field.
    I find normal that a full control user can do it, but not a contributor.
    I find no reason, the classic update method does not work, but yes using ValideUpdateListitem.
    There are other ways not to include fields you don't want the user to fill, without making it readonly, and if you make it readonly and you need a…

  12. Update page section cmdlet

    I wish to update a section on a sharepoint page using Powershell. There currently seems to be no cmdlet that allows you to do this. There is a a Add-PnPClientSidePageSection method, that allows you to add a section but nothing of the sort to update an existing section.

  14. Please Fix - Adding calculated lookup column breaks Lists when creating new List from existing List.

    I created a List in Teams and opened in SharePoint Online to customize it.
    I can create a 'calculated column' and set information type as 'Lookup' and point to data within the list I'm creating.

    This works as expected however, if I want to reuse this List (Create new list from existing list) the creation breaks. I get an error "Parameter targetListName references a resource that could not be found".

    If I take out the calculated list 'Lookup' column, I can reuse the List.

    Please Fix.

  15. Set Default Column Values using a Site Script Verb (Site Design)

    I am a fan of Site Designs; however, I would like to be able to set Default Column Values on lists and folders.

    You could complete this action using the UI or the Set-PnPDefaultColumnValues PowerShell complete. Sadly, this is not in acceptable to the average “business user” and required administrator input.

    Please add a verb called setDefaultColumnValues to SharePoint Site Scripts?

  16. View Existing Assigned Permissions to SP AddIns

    Once permissions are applied to a Service Principal name via _layouts/15/appinv.aspx, it is not possible to see the permissions applied there after. Please build some functionality via the GUI so we can see each (XML) permission applied per Client ID and at what scope it was defined. These service principal names do not appear as 'SharePoint Apps' in the site contents page like other AddIns do, hence we can't click permissions and view them.

  17. Subscribe to list notifications For 'Lists'

    Subscribe to list notifications currently supports only document library events and not 'Lists'.

    I read the consideration as well in which it says 'you can subscribe to events from libraries (but not lists)'.
    But it will it be a great feature if it is supported in the upcoming SPFx versions.

    When adding the formatterJSON for a view allow another JSON value to choose the layout of the view e.g. List, Gallery etc. This is available through the UI but not in the Site Design schema.

  20. Allow directly fetching latest published version of an item or page

    When versioning is turned on, it's possible to hide drafts, either from everyone except the creator or just from users without edit rights. When presenting items from lists, either in custom solutions or using the built-in list webpart, this means that the general viewer may be presented with a different view than a user who is responsible for creating or checking content.

    In order to display a consistent "end user experience", we have to manually fetch a specific version (the latest version that has _ModerationStatus eq 0). In the built-in list view webparts, this isn't even an option.

    Drafts are…
