    • Administrator awareness of present of non-NoScript sites

      Given the (awesome) new features with easier access to retrieving bearer tokens for secured resources, this is also potentially opening up huge security issues. Since anything on a page can access the consented permissions, script injections can be used to use on these sites in non-expected ways.

      SharePoint today has a feature to prevent some malicous scripts from being executed on a page through the NoScript setting, although this is only present on all sites for newer tenants or the Modern sites. There are many tenants and site collections out there that still are script enabled; either before the default…

      • Extensions: AppCustomizer - Register Event Listeners in Modern Page DOM

        It would be great if there was a controlled way to leverage AppCustomizers to register event listeners in modern pages. This capability will empower enterprise developers to create sophisticated auditing and usage reporting solutions for SPO. e.g. Tracking how many times a given user has downloaded files by tracking the “click” event on the file download button and coupling that event with page context information.

        • Provision SPFx (.sppkg) add-ins on a site on-premise

          ALM API is available now for SPO. SPFx now is available for SP2016 on-prem, too, since Feature Pack 2. But still there is no way to provision .sppkg files (either form local disk or from AppCatalog) on a site. Please, add this. There is no migration path from provider-hosted add-ins to SPFx add-ins for our applications now, because method LoadAndInstallApp() which worked for .app files does not work for .sppkg files.

          • 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 the ability to know when a cooment has been made on a modern page so that a flow can be attached to it.

                At the moment it is not possible to know when a comment has been made on a Modern UI Page. If that comment is blasphemous, it will need to be removed asap. A way of doing this would be to attach a flow to the page so that when a comment is made an appropriate person can be notified. That person can then take appropriate action on the comment, including removing it.

                • Field Customizer: expose List Item data to TypeScript API

                  Currently there are some problems with getting List Item data from API for Field Customizer: event.fieldValue that is available in onRenderCell event sometimes contains not what actually expected or what is not enough.
                  For example, Hyperlink or Picture field has 2 properties that should be available in Field Customizer: url and descripbtion, but only url is available now.
                  Of course, most of the needed values could be requested via REST but it would slow the rendering for the column significantly.

                  Given that the information is already preloaded on the page, ideally this information should be exposed via an SPFx TypeScript…

                  • 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).

                    • Users with SharePoint Admin roles should be able to add (and remove) Site Collection App Catalogs

                      A user that has been granted the role SharePoint Admin should have administrative rights over the site collections. This should include being able to add (and remove) site collection app catalogs. This should be particularly true when that user is also the site collection administrator.

                      The error message says "Must have Manage Web Site permissions or be a tenant admin in order to add or remove sites from the site collection app catalog allow list"

                      Site Collection administrators have manage web permissions, minimally, yet are unable to do so. This doesn't make sense. This was reported as a bug but…

                      • SharePoint Extensions on Classic Sites

                        Please, make it possible to use SharePoint Extensions on Classic sites in order to use common components throughout the tenant. A good example is the Footer, we want to use the same footer so we don't have to build two different components in two different technologies.

                            The ability to both read and write to the various property bags would be very helpful. Currently it's possible to read from a web property bag, but not to write. It'd be even better if the other property bags supported this.

                            • 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.

                              • Modern page extensions

                                It would be great to add commands to the command set of a modern page, with similar events to list view extensions e.g. onListViewUpdated > onPageUpdated, and onExecute.

                                The API should enable easy and reliable access to important page information like field data, published state, whether it is promoted as news, etc.

                                • Provide option to convert existing site to communication site

                                  For customers who are trying to completely modernize their large SharePoint implementations, it should be possible to convert an existing site collection to use the communication site template.

                                  It can simply be a powershell command that applies all the features/etc. it needs.

                                  It doesn't need to change existing content, just apply the styles and create the typical landing page for a communication site.

                                  It'll make it easier to adopt upcoming features (like adding sites to hubs, etc.)

                                  • Make it possible to completely hide an SPFx web part at runtime

                                    It should be possible to create a web part that will decide to hide or show at runtime -- for example, when you want to say "Don't show this webpart if there are no results", and it should show no spaces or gaps in the page.

                                    Although it is possible with CSS to approximate this, there is always a gap in the page.

                                    I would suggest that you make the web part visible in Edit mode, regardless of its settings, so that page editors can access the web part settings.

                                    • 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:

                                        • 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.
