  1. 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.

  3. Fix the issue regarding sharepoint list column name

    Sharepoint will not be able to issue the xml list of lists when one of the column is named with symbols only such as "***" or "-" . If this is causing issues they should either be resolved or the column should not permit being named in this way.

    thanks

  4. BUG: Online workbench doesn't reflect the theme colors of the parent web properly

    There is a bug in the Online Workbench that you are not able to test theming on your web parts when the following two themes will be used:
    * Dark Yellow
    * Dark Blue

    As documented in the Issue on GitHub https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1064

    This would be really beneficial for testing web parts and how they look like when different themes will be used.

  6. JSOM/CSOM Threshold issue

    Please enable support for CSOM/JSOM/REST query to process request for large list rather than hitting into threshold issue. Even the column is indexed and you query based on the indexed column, threshold error is returned.

  7. Provide method for extending out of box SPFX web Parts

    Much like the classic SSOM model of extending OOB web parts, provide a way (or open source them ;-)) the SPFX web parts to allow Devs to build upon what you have already built.

    Its a bit old school, but has value in providing Devs a way to extend existing web parts leverage them and tweak them according to specific requirements. Perhaps with a change caveat that if you change it does not update our custom ones based upon it.

  8. Provide client side API to manipulate ContentType XmlDocuments

    As far as I know, there's no way to manipulate XmlDocuments collection of ContentType objects.

    On server side, we can directly use SPContentType.XmlDocuments to manipulate the collection, but I didn't find any client side way to do this.

    Neither CSOM, nor REST API nor Web service provide something able to reach my goal.

    XmlDocuments collection is useful to store content type related configuration. There is OOB configuration like policies, or receivers stored in this collection, and some 3rd party data too (at least we are trying to).

    Thanks

  9. SPFX > Use query builder in Propertypane

    I would like to use the SharePoint Query builder. As we are used to have in the Web-part properties (like the CEWP).
    In SPFX I would like to use it in the Propertypane of a SPFX webpart.

  10. Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items

    Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items. Works fine if under 5k items in the source list. This is contrary to the documentation on using rest - either update the documentation or fix this issue.

  12. Allow Karma extensibility

    At the moment the Karma configuration is completely closed down, you cannot make additions to it like what you can do with webpack. It would be great to have something similar to extend the Karma configuration to our needs like adding additional reporters, like for example have a way to include HTML test reports. This would make unit tests a lot better / easier compared to checking the console output.

  13. Provide gulp task to deploy JS bundle to Office 365 CDN (Like deploy-azure-storage)

    It would be great to see a task to deploy SharePoint Framework App/Ext JS to Office 365 CDN. The azure gulp task deploy-azure-storage deploys assets to azure automatically and helps speed up the production process. Currently we have to manually upload resources or script manually (which is time consuming). It would really help with making Office 365 CDN easier to use.

  14. Enhance FieldLink class with additional properties - ShowInEditForm, ShowInDisplayForm, ShowInFileDialog/DIP

    This idea was originally posted here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/31414426-enhance-fieldlink-class-with-additional-properties
    I added it here as this is the correct place for CSOM Server-side ideas.
    Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFieldLink and Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.FieldLink does not publically expose properties to set ShowInEditForm, ShowInDisplayForm, ShowInFileDialog/DIP. This is only possible to set using CAML markup. It would be great to be able to set this using the object model, both server side (for On Prem) and client side.
    In addition the On Prem client object model does not contain all available properties recently added to SharePoint Online client object model suggested here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329220-sharepoint-dev-platform/suggestions/15147075-enhance-fieldlink-class-with-additional-properties
    Can you please also add these to On Prem…

    * onDispose method to release resources
    * split buttons support (commands in sub menu)

  16. Enable configuring sp-page-context settings on the workbench

    when developing spfx webparts that will serve as listforms (for example added to edit form.aspx), we can use sp-page-context splits and splits item to determine the list and item we are working on.

    it would be nice if the workbench could let us configure these parameters so that when developing, we could mimic the real environment.

    2. for displayGroupsAsAccordion=true add an option to collapse all other groups when one is being expanded like it usually happens in accordeon

  19. Search API filter Office 365 Group sites by GroupType

    We have the ability to use the search rest api to search for Office 365 group sites with query similar to:
    /_api/search/query?querytext='groupname WebTemplate%3AGroup'&trimduplicates=false&Properties='EnableUnifiedGroups:true'

    Which has the added benefit of also searching Private groups.

    Please add the ability to further refine this by GroupType, such as only Unified group sites.

  20. App catalog Trust prompt for external dependencies too in the SharePoint Framework

    It would be great if all the referenced external dependencies (scripts) were listed in the trust prompt in the app catalog,
    eventually the same for scripts dynamically loaded through the SPComponentLoader with the external scripts dynamically loaded should be declared.
    This would prevent any way of code "injection" without the explicit consent of the app catalog administrator
