  2. make the SPFx workbench wider

    When developing a web part for "supportedHosts": ["SharePointFullPage"] it will be nice to have the full width of the page while debugging in /_layouts/15/workbench.aspx too.
    It is very hard to see just half the width of the final web part.

  5. adding script code to Sharepoint

    I would like to add script code from a Jira widget. The purpose of this is so that employees can quickly use this widget to submit a ticket.

  6. Support SPFx Command Bar and Context Menu on ODFB default library modern view

    Recently SharePoint App Add-in stopped working at ODFB default library modern view and SPFx is not supported there either, so there leaves no option to customize on ODFB default library.

  7. Use of internal column names when configuring the body of SharePoint forms

    I would like to be able to use internal column names when configuring the body layout for forms. The display names is dependent on the language settings which is far from ideal. As it is right now I have to enter all possible language display names for all columns.

  8. Environment Setup Too Complicated - Citizen Developer

    I am a citizen developer and have very little software development background. The SharePoint Dev Platform environment setup is:

    (1) Too complicated (installing node.js, gulp, yeoman, dev certificates etc)
    (2) Fills me with fear (e.g. using npm to download hundreds of files from unknown places)

    SharePoint is a Microsoft product, development for which should be handled by a development environment installer such as Visual Studio Community Edition. Within Visual Studio Community Edition I should just be able to click 'SharePoint Framework' and the environment should then be setup to support SharePoint Framework development. No command line, no going off to…

  9. Set Default Column Values using a Site Script Verb (Site Design)

    I am a fan of Site Designs; however, I would like to be able to set Default Column Values on lists and folders.

    You could complete this action using the UI or the Set-PnPDefaultColumnValues PowerShell complete. Sadly, this is not in acceptable to the average “business user” and required administrator input.

    Please add a verb called setDefaultColumnValues to SharePoint Site Scripts?

  10. Transfer "Edit columns in form" in a site script

    The same way we can specify which columns will be in each view in a list section of a script. We should be able to choose which columns will be by default in the edit form ("Edit columns in form" NOT power app)
    We create sites with Site designs and this can be very helpful.

  11. Subscribe to list notifications For 'Lists'

    Subscribe to list notifications currently supports only document library events and not 'Lists'.

    I read the consideration as well in which it says 'you can subscribe to events from libraries (but not lists)'.
    But it will it be a great feature if it is supported in the upcoming SPFx versions.

  12. SPFX component type for container of other web parts or alternate section format

    I'd like to be able to have one web part that shows or hides another web part, or a web part that can contain other web parts. The system has section layouts, now, but I'd like to take that a step further.

    This comes up because I've been looking for a solution to have a SharePoint modern page that can switch between two different views to a document library - a custom web part, and the standard web part. When I was trying to find a modern solution, I did see that older versions of sharepoint have had a fairly…

  13. Allow 3rd party native clients to call SP.Oauth.NativeClient Authenticate endpoint

    Description:
    Currently _api/SP.Oauth.NativeClient/Authenticate API endpoint is locked so that you can call this endpoint only if bearer token is granted by specifics MS azure apps.
    This is only way to get SP authentication cookie by bearer token and it seems that every MS mobile apps use this method to acquire authentication cookie. Teams, mobile sharepoint app etc...

    When developing mobile apps you are now forced to do multiple authentications to open Sharepoint page or forced to store client credentials order to call vtibin/idcrl.svc/ which is another way to get SP authentication cookie programmatically.

    Problem:
    You can't create azure app…

  14. Microsoft learning pathways - hide asset from all playlists

    I'd like to be able to hide a particular asset from all playlists. For example, in our orgainsation we have restricted the creation of new Teams so we'd like to hide the asset "Get your team up and running" from all the playlists that it appears in.

    Currently, we have to search through all playlists and if that asset exists in one, we have to copy the playlist, remove it from the new playlist, the hide the original playlist.

  15. adding columns should affect only local document structure

    Adding a new column in a subfolder adds the same structure to the whole Sharepoint. I cannot in my wildest dream imagine how anyone can think this is a good idea. I cannot think of any (actually good) file structure that works like this. This is one of the worst design choices I have encountered. I mean, Microsoft in general is truly bad at most user experience, but this just goes beyond what I can comprehend.

    At least allow it to be a choice if columns are global or local.

  16. Make "pin to top" available progammatically

    There seems to be currently no way to pin a document to top in a document library programatically CSOM/JS/PnP. I would like to have the option to pin items to top, without the need to do this manually (we could use this for deployment scenarios).

  17. Display list of attendees for an Event

    In the Event webpart, we should be able to see a list of anyone who has added the event to their calendar. It seems like an obvious request, but an organiser would surely want to see who's attending their event?

  18. Group list commands in SPFx ListView Command Extension

    Currently, when we deploy the SPFx ListView Command Set extension solution, each command becomes a separate button. How can I group them under one group like the default new icon, which we have in the list? Please give a provision for the same.

  19. View Existing Assigned Permissions to SP AddIns

    Once permissions are applied to a Service Principal name via _layouts/15/appinv.aspx, it is not possible to see the permissions applied there after. Please build some functionality via the GUI so we can see each (XML) permission applied per Client ID and at what scope it was defined. These service principal names do not appear as 'SharePoint Apps' in the site contents page like other AddIns do, hence we can't click permissions and view them.
