  1. Enable to add web parts programmatically to newly created modern sites

    Currently, it's not possible to add a web part to a newly created modern site (communication or team site):


    • Adding a web part is not supported in site designs.

    • Adding a web part with PnP (CSOM: ClientSidePage.AddControl; PowerShell: Add-PnPClientSideWebPart) removes all default web parts.

    It would be good to support either scenario or, even better, both.

  2. Add Full Width Web Part to Modern Team Sites

    this is half the story (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/web-parts/basics/use-web-parts-full-width-column)

    But there are plenty of business reasons why you need to create an spFX web part that would use the full width of the screen.

    I don't know why microsoft needs to dictate that you have 1244 px to show you content on a team site, and not 1 pixel more.

  3. Create SPFx webparts inside or from another SPFx webpart or extension

    As described in https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/3110

    Untill SPFx version 1.4.1 there was an option to use the ClientSideWebPartManager to create webparts from another webpart. Currently we are working some time already on a custom 'widgetzone' with an easy dragging and dropping grid layout (Muuri, https://haltu.github.io/muuri/), user zones and a lot of other awesome stuff which isn't supported by the default SharePoint grid. (which is off course understandable)

    Currently I am not seeing another path to make this possible, so for now we have to stick on the SPFx 1.4.1 release. I do understand this is something not many companies will encounter,…

  4. Allow Property Pane Groups and Group Fields to be hidden

    Richer editing experiences can be written when group fields and groups can be hidden via property pane configuration - much like group fields can be disabled by passing true to the disabled property.

    The 'disabled' property is not enough for building rich and dynamic editing experiences. Especially when groups of fields need to be disabled based on other properties. We need 'hidden' as well as 'disabled' and preferably the ability to hide groups as well as group fields.

    The current solutions for dynamically showing property pane controls involves creating wrapper controls and frankly when it comes to developing SharePoint sites…

  5. Improve the field lookup in rest calls.

    When doing a lookup to another list item, Fields like Choice, lookup to lists from another site, users, and many other are not available and developers are forced to make several calls to get the information that could be received in one.

    Also lookedUp fields are not refreshed when making a second call if the item has changed sending incorrect information the the user.

  6. Add support to create list / document library based on custom template to REST API

    If I save list as template I cannot use this template to create new list via REST API because it does not accept template name as input parameter: This is possible in CSOM by passing ListTemplate parameter (https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/255947/creating-a-document-library-from-custom-template-with-folder-structure-inside-us)

    In REST it is possible just to pass ListTemplateTypeKind as BaseTemplate parameter and there is no parameter for custom template name so it is not possible to create new list/library based on custom template (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/working-with-lists-and-list-items-with-rest)

  7. SharePoint modern page template error when accessing model details panel

    Hi, I just want to submit a bug with the modern page template.
    When creating a site in another language than English (Example french), the site pages templates folder will be named "Modèles" in french. When you edit a page template and access the details panel to display the properties, it will throw an error.

    My solution was not rename the "Modèles" folder by "Templates" and everything is fine now.

    I've reproduce the issue on 2 tenants.

  9. Multi-Geo for ISV Tenants

    We are an ISV and are seeing new customers who have Multi-Geo enabled tenants. We are wondering how we can get Multi-Geo activated for our tenant so we can develop and test our solution on Multi-Geo environments. The minimum requirement that is put on customers is 500 users, as an ISV we will not get to that number of users in our tenant.

    Any advise how we can develop and test against Multi-Geo is appreciated.

  11. Organize/Tag Demos

    Wealth of knowledge in Community Demos. Help me find that knowledge often buried within. Perhaps with tagging - Audience - Dev/ITPro/Citizen, App compatibility, Product type, Release cycle stage, Currency - current/archive... Alternatively discover through transcripts and text search.

  13. EndPoint RenderListDataAsStream full compatibility with Task List (template 171)

    If a Task list (template 171) has fewer than 5000 items, the performance of the RenderListDataAsStream endpoint is inappropriate (try with 4999 items). If the list has 5000 or more elements the performance becomes excellent. I know that the tasks lists are not compatible with Modern UI, but this should not affect the RenderListDataAsStream endpoint as well.

  15. Deactivate feature using site scripts and site designs.

    There is a verb to activate feature. Sometimes we require to deactivate features which are not required while creating sites. Can there be a separate verb for deactivating features? Also activateFeature but it works only at web level features. Can we have it extended to activate at site collection level?

  16. Allow clientId instead of resourceName when requesting webApiPermissions

    When using the SharePoint Framework, you should be able to request webApiPermissions via the resource client Id OR the resource name.

    We have a multi-tenant application that's deployed to a couple dozen tenancies that we would like to rename. However, since permissions are requested by name, any attempt to rename the application may be met with our users having to go through the install process again. Being able to instead request access via the clientId would allow us to safely rename without having to worry about our users losing access.
