  1. Add IFC format as a global open 3D standard for Building-oriented objects in Sharepoint Spaces

    Once the Sharepoint Space has been rolled out among all tenants, it would be nice to have a wider and especially accessible 3D data format range.

    Regarding Architectural, Engineering, and Construction objects, there is a global open standard based on 3D smart objects called IFC (Industry Foundation Classes), developed by buildingSMART International (+ info https://www.buildingsmart.org/standards/bsi-standards/industry-foundation-classes/ )

    It would be a consistent approach from Microsoft to implement this 3D format in Sharepoint Spaces since is a global and open Standard.

  2. 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…

  3. Add Last Publish Date as an option in News Web Part

    Currently the only date visible on a Modern homepage with the News Web Part is First publish date. Even after the article has been updated, the date remains the same. Please include the option to select Last Publish Date/Last Modified Date to be visible from the News Web part.

    Currently the only work around is to hide the date altogether and open the article to see the last updated date.

  4. Using the 'Send an Email' Funcitionality on a news update from Sharepoint, allow the entire article to be in the body of email.

    When you are emailing an article from a Sharepoint, it sends a link to whomever is recieving the article. What I would like to see is a functionality where the article itself is sent in an email as opposed to just a link.

  5. Allow Admins/Owners to restrict who can recieve emails sent from Sharepoint

    When you have a Sharepoint page that has the News feature on it, members on that Sharepoint can send articles from the news reel to anyone in the organiztion in the form of an email.

    What I would like to see is a feature that allows an owner of the Sharepoint to restrict who those emails can get sent to. This way confidential information can't get sent around on accident.

  7. 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.

  8. Listing SharePoint Site Collection URLs in a Web App should have a special permission to avoid giving too much admin access

    Listing site collection URLs in a web app should be a special permission by itself. Many times you end up giving full admin rights to a user just because you need that ability. And this forces you to violate the principal of Least Permissions.

    Make the ability to give access to list site collections without being a full admin.

  9. Make sure everything that is available from the SOAP api is available from CSOM

    Currently you cannot get some things from the CSOM/REST api that you can get from the SOAP API.


    • For SharePoint Lists - Getting the AnonymousPermMask property requires the Lists.asmx soap web service.


    • For SharePoint Sites - Getting the NoIndex, AnonymousViewListItems, and AllowAnonymousAccess property requires the Sites.asmx soap web service.


    • Listing all site collections in a web app also requires SOAP.


    We definitely need to go through everything in the SOAP API and make sure that all still-relevant properties and operations can be done with CSOM/REST.

  10. Tab order to comply with WCAG

    As a municipality we are imposed to follow the EU directive for Web Accessibility WCAG which, among other things, specifies how the tab order on a website need to work.
    "Users should be able to tab through interactive items in a logical order, usually from left to right and top to bottom."
    We need to be able to set tab order on the websites manually or that the websites automatically sets the tab order to comply with the EU Web Accessibility directive WCAG for tab order.
    As long as Sharepoint Online does not comply with theese specifications then we can…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Event for list item comment

    List item commenting is a really nice addition. I have already stumbled upon case(s) where customers want to run a flow for newly added comments. What I am suggesting is to shoot off an event when a comment is added/manipulated. Basically, commenting = item updated

  17. 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.

  19. Update React for SPFx1.4 for SP2019.

    If we don't upgrade React to 16.8 atleast then we can't use react hooks,

    > so can't use latest fluent UI controls as they all use react hooks
    > can't use latest validation libararies like react-hook-forms as also rely on same
    > can't use latest version of PNP.JS/controls

    That makes mostly like an abandoned platform rather. Most of the customers with us are on-prem, so this is essential for the future SharePoint IMHO
