  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Add support for library packages in the SharePoint Framework

        When building web parts I'd like to be able to extract common code to a separate library that can be shared amongst the different web parts.

          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…

            • Increase the size limit of 50mb for zip file generate while using built-in document set downloader page

              While using the /_layouts/DocSetExport.aspx?List={ListId}&ID={ItemId} link, we found that the zips created for documents whose total size exceeds 50mb is corrupted, in the Sharepoint online environment. It would be nice if this limit is increased

                  • Extensions: Application Customizer - Loading JS Files in <HEAD> Tags

                    The current architecture of the SPFx Extensions allow for us to populate "Placeholders", such as PageHead and PageFooter with content.

                    If we need to load JS files though, be them stored within SP or externally, we would need to add external references into the <HEAD> tag of the page.

                    We can use the current placeholders to dynamically update the <HEAD> tag, but this seems less then optimal.

                    Classic UCA's allowed for multiple JS references, as well as the sequence in which they were loaded. (Ex: Load jQuery prior to loading a Utility JS file that is dependent on jQuery.)

                    Replicating…

                      • Hope to have such a function which can let administrator check other departments’ recent activities in Delve

                        It would be really helpful if an administrator can check recent activities of unrelated departments, such as frequently accessed documents, users’ work details and visit traffic to files etc.

                        • App catalog Trust prompt for external dependencies too in the SharePoint Framework

                          It would be great if all the referenced external dependencies (scripts) were listed in the trust prompt in the app catalog,
                          eventually the same for scripts dynamically loaded through the SPComponentLoader with the external scripts dynamically loaded should be declared.
                          This would prevent any way of code "injection" without the explicit consent of the app catalog administrator

                            • Open Source or at least Source Open the Yeoman Generator

                              Plain and simple, I was hoping to see the source of the generator get released. The main reason is to see how things are done and how we can possibly improve on your process.

                              I'm fine if you don't want to go full open source in the sense where you take PR contributions from the community (although I don't understand that reason), but at the very least you should do what's considered **source open** where you share the source code but don't accept PR's & contributions.

                              • Search API filter Office 365 Group sites by GroupType

                                We have the ability to use the search rest api to search for Office 365 group sites with query similar to:
                                /_api/search/query?querytext='groupname WebTemplate%3AGroup'&trimduplicates=false&Properties='EnableUnifiedGroups:true'

                                Which has the added benefit of also searching Private groups.

                                Please add the ability to further refine this by GroupType, such as only Unified group sites.

                                • Add Full Page App Component Type

                                  It's been brought up multiple times in different places, but I'm not sure if this is the same issue as other SPA-like suggestions linked to at the end of this submission. I think this would give us the ability to deploy a SPA so IMHO this could be merged with all of them.

                                  I'd like to have a new component option for SPFx projects: full page app. I want to define 100% of what goes into the canvas, blocking the user from making any configuration changes in edit mode. Ideally I'd like two types of pages to write to: one…

                                  • Spell Checker in Wiki Pages

                                    Currently, the Spell Check option is only available on the the Publishing Sites. It would be great if we have this spell checker option in the SharePoint Site Collection Wiki pages without activating Publishing features.

                                    Thanks & Regards,
                                    Bhanu

                                    • Extend GraphHttpClient to entire Graph ressources

                                      Congrat to introduce the availability to connect graph ressources more easily (without ADAL).
                                      GraphHttpClient is currently limited to Groups (not members) et report. It will be very usefull to extend to all graph ressources. Developper could build amazing dashboard with multi origin information.

                                      • Ability to run development and production versions of the SP Fx web parts in two different site collections

                                        Currently, the SharePoint Framework solutions are deployed as tenant wide app packages. Thereby, all instances of the web parts refer the JavaScript files from the CDN location specified in the packaged that is deployed in the app catalog. We need the ability to run Development, Staging and Production environments as different Site Collections in the same tenant.
