  6. Allow optional permissions to webApiPermissionRequests so admin can approve some

    Allow users to specify multiple permissions in webApiPermissionRequests that admin can approve only some of them (not all or nothing).

    Also would be great if the application can request more/different permissions based on user configuration during runtime:
    Make a request to resource X
    Get access denied
    Prompt the user and open a new "request" for that resource during runtime

  7. Improve Popup Behavior when consuming APIs secured with Azure AD within the SharePoint Framework

    When using the AadHttpClient within a SPFx WebPart, a popup appears that is currently necessary to facilitate authenticate to Azure AD (part of ADAL JS). While this is understandable if the user needs to supply additional authentication components, if the user has the necessary rights to the Azure secured API, no popup should be presented.

    Scenarios where this behavior is not acceptable:
    - Pages with multiple third party data sources (user is bombarded with popups)
    - High traffic landing pages (like corporate home pages) where look & feel are crucial

    Documentation on behavior:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/use-aad-tutorial

    GitHub Issue relating to this:
    https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1471

  8. Intercept page events, such as publish and save

    When a page event occurs. Allow the webpart to get this action and dismiss it, e.g. ‘No you can’t publish this page until this property is equal to x’

  9. Requires a support of "ActivateFeatureOnDefault=False" in SPFX.

    Currently there is no way to control feature activation in SPFX solutions. Features always gets activated even if its needed on demand.

  10. IDs are conflicting between multiple SharePoint calendars when download them in local outlook

    In SharePoint, you can add multiple calendars, but each calendar use auto-increment ID field, which can conflict with other calendars EventID when you download these events as .ics in your local outlook.
    Because outlook use .ics eventid to create a new event in your calendar. Now when you download events from the SharePoint calendars, they might have same IDs and outlook either wouldn't add same IDs event or in some case it will remove the exiting event with the same ID.

    I went through with Microsoft support and they agreed it is a restriction on SharePoint calendar object that we…

  11. Support OData $inlinecount operator in REST API

    The OData v3 specification (which I believe the SharePoint REST API is supposed to be v3) supports an operator to include the total row count for a query in the response. The Project Online /api/ProjectData endpoint supports it as well. However it seems the /api/Lists endpoint does not for some reason.

    Could you "fix" this so the Lists API is OData compliant?

    See section 10.2.3.6 here: http://www.odata.org/documentation/odata-version-3-0/odata-version-3-0-core-protocol/

  12. Add build parameters for overriding default config.json and package-solution.json locations

    Currently SPFx build process assumes that project only has one config.json and one package-solution.json file. For projects that are deployed to multiple tenants this limitation should be removed.

    Easiest way would be to add some build parameters that can be used to override locations of those files. e.g.
    gulp package-solution --ship -solutionfile mycustomfolder/package-client1.json

  14. Support changing Calendar view Overlay using APIs

    Right now in the SharePoint Online Client APIs (Whether it is CSOM or REST) we can't change the CalendarSettings properties to override the current Overlay Calendar of a View.

    It used to be doable in SharePoint 2010/2013, but on SharePoint Online CSOM there is no CalendarSettings member of the View.

    The closest we can get it the HtmlSchemaXml which includes the AggregationCalendars node but it's read only.

  19. Write to Web Property Bags

    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.
