  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.

    • 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.

        • 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.)

          • 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.

                  Thanks for your feedback! We like your suggestion and it’s being added to our backlog. We don’t have yet specific schedule for this, but item has been added to upcoming plans for the SPFx and since request does make sense and has been requested from other sources as well, this will be most likely implemented.

                • Finish the SharePoint Framework documentation

                  Trying to learn a new framework is hard enough when the documentation is complete. Sadly the SharePoint Framework Reference at https://dev.office.com/sharepoint/reference/spfx/ is not even close to anything that could be considered thorough. Much of it consists of a bare minimum that describes what an item is but not how or why you would want to use it. Some items are described with the name of the item itself, a circular reference that informs no one of anything. Many items have no description in the description column for the item. And far too many links land on pages that only say…

                  • The search history on the Delve page

                    On the Delve page of Office 365, there’s a search history displayed under “Contact”.
                    There’s no way to delate or clear the search history.
                    It would be really helpful if a function of clearing search history can be implement.

                    • 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.

                      • Content organizer processing timer job should process documents in folders

                        Currently this content organizer only processes documents at the root level. I believe it is a bug / by-design in method ProcessWaitingFile of class Microsoft.Office.RecordsManamgement.RecordsRepository.EcmDocumentRoutingWeb. This method iterates through documents at the Drop Off library root folder level but does not include documents at sub folder level. This is apparent an oversight as 3rd party tools such as Colligo does not trigger the Content Organizer during file uploading and IF your implementation uses folders under Drop Off Library to secure contents then this timer job cannot pick them up.

                        Please just include a "Scope='Recursive'" to the CAML Query and everything…

                        • Enable saving sites that contain SPFx web parts as templates

                          Creating site templates that include preconfigured web parts on the landing page is a common requirement. We can add and configure classic OOB web parts on a landing page and save the site as a template, and we can do script injection customisations and save the site as a template. However, if a site includes an SPFx web part, we get the error message:

                          "Sorry, this site can't be saved as a template. It contains apps that don't work in templates"

                          This is currently a blocker in an area where a SharePoint Framework approach would otherwise be ideal.

                                I work for a company that has many locations with poor bandwidth. Connectivity is sometimes intermittent.
                                I have worked around this issue in the past using the technique described at https://yetanothersharepointblog.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/rendering-json-from-an-xsltlistviewwebpart/. While it is 'kludgy' the way I had to to it, ,the results were fantastic. I suggest that SPFX embrace this technique to deliver a webparts initial data when the page containing the webpart is initially rendered.

                                I envision a that in the sharepoint UI when a user edits a webpart, on the toolpane there would be a button called 'data' or something below the existing 'Configure' button.…

                                  The recently released Dialog class in the SharePoint Framework is a lovely idea but doesn't go nearly as far as it should and is currently very limited in its usefulness. I would like to request the following enhancements:

                                  1. Allow a parameter for a custom Title; currently they always say only "Alert" and "Prompt" and cannot be changed

                                  2. Allow specification of the classic alert icons (info, warning, question, error)

                                  3. Allow specification of a custom icon, preferably from the Office UI Fabric

                                  4. Allow specification of traditional button sets (ok, ok-cancel, yes-no, etc.) and/or custom button sets using a…

                                  • Add Persian Language to SharePoint

                                    Persian Language is already supported by Office, but not other related products.

                                    It'll be great if Persian Language is supported by SharePoint too.

                                      • Add Follow/ Un Follow feature in Modern Document Library

                                        Document Library with a Classic view have a feature to Follow a Document, but in new Modern view Document Library, this feature is missing. Many of our clients are asking for this so that they can add document as their favorite. Any idea whether SharePoint Engineering team is working or not? If yes, then when can we expect this to roll out?

                                        • Document versions search

                                          There is no way to OOB to search and find content within document versions.
                                          Many times a modified document by a user get overridden by another user and there is no way to search previouslyedited document ,its content or metadata.

                                          We are facing the difficulty in Ediscovery situation where Legal would like to see and put on Hold all the documents where users have made the contribution in the past. Currently it only shows the latest published version.
