  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Conditionally show or hide columns in a SharePoint list or library NEW, Edit & DISPLAY forms

    The new feature "Conditionally show or hide columns in a SharePoint list or library form" is great when working with the VIEW form: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/list-form-conditional-show-hide#specify-conditional-formula-to-show-or-hide-columns

    Can this feature be extended to include NEW, EDIT and DISPLAY forms?

    It would not replace PowerApp forms, but rather give editors and site owners ability to add very basic logic into their SharePoint forms.

    For example: =if([$Category]=='Product Management','true', 'false')
    If this formula were applied to a field in a NEW or EDIT form (of a SharePoint list or Library), then the field would only be visible when the Category field’s value was set to ‘Product…

  11. 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.

  12. Change Default Sharing Setting for All New Team Sites to 'Anyone with Link'.

    I have the default sharing setting in the SharePoint and OneDrive and Office365 Admin Centers to 'Share with Anyone with the Link' when a new Team Site is created. However, when I try to share a document on a new site, that option is grayed out and an Admin has to go into the SP Admin Center to change this. I am requesting that this bug be fixed, so you can share with Anyone with the Link, as set in the Admin Center settings.

  13. 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).

  14. 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?

  15. Column formatting Office URI

    Can you please allow the JSON column formatting to support the Office URI schemas - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/client-developer/office-uri-schemes?

    This would allow simple links to open documents from a library as templates.

    At the moment, if I construct an <a> tag then it will reject anything that does not start with http.

  16. 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…

  18. Site Design View Customer FormatJSON Choose Layout

    When adding the formatterJSON for a view allow another JSON value to choose the layout of the view e.g. List, Gallery etc. This is available through the UI but not in the Site Design schema.

  19. Allow directly fetching latest published version of an item or page

    When versioning is turned on, it's possible to hide drafts, either from everyone except the creator or just from users without edit rights. When presenting items from lists, either in custom solutions or using the built-in list webpart, this means that the general viewer may be presented with a different view than a user who is responsible for creating or checking content.

    In order to display a consistent "end user experience", we have to manually fetch a specific version (the latest version that has _ModerationStatus eq 0). In the built-in list view webparts, this isn't even an option.

    Drafts are…

  20. titleresource in view class in CSOM

    We can access to titleresource for lists and fields and to nameresource in content type. (get AND set)
    Unfortunately, it seems titleresource is missing in view class.
    That would be great to help in translation management.
    Thanks
