  1. SPFx: ESLint instead of TSLint

    TSLint is deprecated nowadays as ESLint supports TypeScript. However, we cannot replace TSLint with ESLint in SPFx projects because TSLint task is a part of the build process internally. It would be nice to use ESLint by default.

    A couple of GitHub links about the topic:
    - https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/4972
    - https://github.com/microsoft/rushstack/pull/1592

    A couple of interesting historical facts:
    “In fact, it all started a long time ago: the last release of the tslint kernel was already in 2016. And this is the moment when it is time to start saying “last,” if someone still says “last,” because that release was really the…

  2. Use Sequence parameter to sort ListView Command Set in menu

    The sequence parameter (int) in the custom action schema should allow us to sort the action within the whole menu.

    Actually it's only used to sort SPFx actions among themselves.

  4. SPFx Key/Value Pair Properties that support Read/Write

    Provide a SharePoint Framework mechanism/API that allows for Site or Site Collection Read/Write of Key/Value pair properties for use in SPFx related configuration and customizations. Similar to how the property bag was used in classic.

    One use case is for storing configurable properties or even user personalization configurations written and read by an SPFx solution.

    This is one of many uses cases that would make this feature valuable, so in addition to your vote, please feel free to comment with additional ways in which this feature could provide additional value.

  5. Custom Access Request Form

    There should be a way to register a webhook / set a alternative page for access request when a user is denied access to a site. We have an auto approval process that uses rules but there is no way to use it.

    We were able to do it on premises

  7. Update @microsoft/sp-office-ui-fabric-core to depend on office-ui-fabric-core V-10.0.0 or higher+

    So I have been doing a lot of digging into which version of office-ui-fabric-core SharePoint uses. Turns out that it uses office-ui-fabric-core V-9.6.1 which if you are aware was released before Fluent Design Language was a thing. Now I get that sharepoint doesn't fully use Fluent Design Language, but because all documentation on Fluent points to UI Fabric Core and the documentation for SPFx does too it leads to a lot of confusion since a lot was added starting with version 10.0.0 of office-ui-fabric-core. Now I get that we could simply clarify the documentation for SPFx so that it mentions…

  8. Allow Visual Studio to debug SharepPoint-Online-Apps

    Moin Moin.

    Can You, please add the functionality used manually in "https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/use-app-catalog" to Visual-Studio's deployment-logic, in order to acheive, that a debugging-session for a SharepPoint-Apps can be used with SharepPoint-Online.
    It effectively means, that Visual-Studio is deploying the app "manually" using the HTTP-Api the browser is using, and then starting the debug-session with the correct Visual-Studio-Browser/User-Debugging-Context.

        Tschüß,
    
    Michael.

  9. Single query to get max document ID when library has more than 5000 items

    If document library has more than 5000 items it is not possible to execute one query to select maximum document ID (something like SELECT TOP 1 ID FROM XXX ORDER BY ID DESC). Only option is to loop in steps/pages of 5000 which can take a lot of loops due to possible large number of documents in document library or to find creative approach to increase ranges but still simple statement will perfect solution.

  10. Allow to display classic SharePoint-hosted add-in inside MS Flow tab

    Many customers want to display SharePoint-hosted add-ins (located in the App Web) inside MS Teams tab, but it's not possible. It's very weird when you can attach any website like Google, but you cannot attach another product from Microsoft Office 365 ecosystem...

  11. Extensions: Command Set asynchronous checking for visibility

    It would be great to be able to check if a command needs to be visible or not asynchronously, enabling the possibility to use Rest API checks and query user authorizations, list item properties, etc

  13. SharePoint Migration CreateSPAsyncReadJob Export Permissions

    In the following article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/apis/export-amr-api the CreateSPAsyncReadJob supports a number of items.

    It states 'Permissions are expected to be covered in a subsequent version.' is expected to be covered in a subsequent version.

    Is this feature on the roadmap? If it is, do you know when this will be released?

    To get permissions subsequent calls need to be made to each item to get the permissions and build them locally

    Would also be great to include permission changes in the StartChangeToken. At the moment if a permission is changed in a library the StartChangeToken does not flag this as a…

  14. Allow publishing of content type hub content types via Graph API

    This is a re-post of another user voice with nearly 300 votes shifting to the context of the Graph API instead of CSOM (per the response from Microsoft rejecting the first proposal because of the context of CSOM)

  15. Add a querystring to disable data-interception

    As the data-interception propagate is getting more and more deployed in the out of the box components (navigation, quick links, ...). The idea is to add or querystring to the target URL set on the navigation or in the Link (in quick links) so the target page ignores the data-interception when loading (like the data-interception was off).
    Example:
    - I add a link in navigation to [Site]/Lists/SomeList/AllItems.aspx?DataInterception=Off
    - The allitems.aspx page (the view page) will ignore the data received from the source page and load completely.

    It's really needed, this data-interception is causing a lot of problems in the navigation…

  16. Add modern webservice API functionality to supported API as graph

    There are two modern webservices used in SharePoint for getting followed sites, frequented sites, news posts, etc for the current user. As asked about on Github (https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1689) and as mentioned in this uservoice (https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329220-sharepoint-dev-platform/suggestions/34075903-api-support-for-followed-sties) a bunch of folks would like to have some kind of official support/usage for this. If this is not possible, we would like to ask to add these functions to Graph / SharePoint REST

  17. Reduce cost for additional SharePoint storage

    Hi,

    Would be great if you could consider lowering the costs for additional SharePoint storage. 0.2 $ per GB per month is one of the most expensive storage now a days in the market.

    Any timeline planned or already considering to lower the costs?

    Thanks

  19. know "who viewed this document" in CSOM

    In CSOM there is no way to know "who viewed this file". In the sharepoint UI (web browser) there is a way (but it's not working fine with some file types like .jpg). I understand this information is taken from the analytics but this level of details is not available through CSOM. It would be great if you can provide this informnation in CSOM and if file types like jpg and other related excluded types also provide this information.

  20. CSOM What's new

    There is no official site specifying the "what's new" for each nuget package. Even more, for the latest release (16.1.20017.12000) there is in the internet no site mentioning the differencies... for previous releases there are few msdn blogs with the name of the properties (not for all versions) but only the names, in the official MSDN documentation there is no reference for these new properties.
