  1. Allow publishing of content type hub content types via Graph API

    This is a re-post of another user voice with nearly 300 votes shifting to the context of the Graph API instead of CSOM (per the response from Microsoft rejecting the first proposal because of the context of CSOM)

    https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329220-sharepoint-dev-platform/suggestions/15147111-allow-publishing-of-content-type-hub-content-types

  2. 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.

  4. Automated Flow for Collect Feedback to replace the Collect Feedback SharePoint 2010/2013 Workflow for Office documents..

    We need an automated Flow for Collect Feedback to replace the Collect Feedback SharePoint 2010/2013 Workflow. I need to route Office documents--specifically, Microsoft Word, or Visio Drawings, Powerpoints, or spreadsheets, to stakeholders (Engineers) for their feedback. Specifically, these are procedure documents that require redlines (Tracked Changes) and the ability for the reviewer to edit/add comments. Word already does that, yes, but I need to be able to run a SharePoint Workflow that is NOT an Approval workflow. It's to be used for collecting redline feedback, reviews, tracked changes, and routing to several users. Not including that Collect Feedback Workflow in…

  5. When you add both a list properties webpart and a file viewer webpart on a single page (in the same section), both do not work.

    When you add both a list properties webpart and a file viewer webpart on a single page (in the same section), both do not work. Can this be checked and fixed?

  6. Version Metadata Not Working in Labels

    Hi All,

    I have a customer who is about to walk away from SharePoint online as we can’t get the metadata of the version of the document into the footer. They’re going to go to livelink or docuware.

    What’s the problem?

    This may sound small but industry standard document management requires that footers of documents can contain metadata, most importantly the version of the document so when a user prints the document the document can have the correct controls embedded right the way through the document. It’s called Document Control.

    SharePoint online allows us to create content types and, through…

  7. Support "object-fit" style attribute for list column formatting

    The list of supported style attributes should really contain "object-fit". Right now it is not supported. It's handy for scaling images properly.

  9. Font sizes in events webpart description field fixed .

    The font sizes in the description field of an event are not configurable you can only choose the default fonts (header/normal etc.).
    This results in the plain text (normal) and list (bulleted list) fonts being different sizes.

    Please make all fonts configurable just like in normal modern pages.

  10. Pro-grammatically update Author's name on the image banner of SharePoint page

    Dear Microsoft Team,

    The author name located on top left corner of UI SharePoint page is linked with "authorbyline" property field.

    However after updating this field via PowerShell script and in .NET code CSOM PnP, the change of author name does not sync to the SharePoint page.

    It would be nice pragramatically updating the author name is supported in the next release.

    This request would bring value to the business when migrating bulk pages from a third party intranet site to SharePoint Online so that instead of manually updating each SharePoint migrated page with the author name and publish it,…

  11. Create Site Policies programmatically

    Hi.
    I'm trying to find a way to create site policies using Powershell together with the PnP framework.
    I need to provision new site policies to a selection of site collections on my tenant.
    At the moment it's possible to get and set the policies using PnP. But there is no option to add/create a site policy.

    ps,
    Tried to do the same thing using a PnP Provisioning template. But ran into a, I believe, known error:
    Sorry, something went wrong
    An unexpected error has occurred.

  12. When we have more than 5000 items in a SharePoint Online list which we need to display in a custom form, we can only display 5000 items def

    When we have more than 5000 items in a SharePoint Online list which we need to display in a custom form, we can only display 5000 items in the form, and to display more than 5000 items we need to write a recursive ajax function using REST API.
    So that it will concatenate the items in each recursion and then can be able to display more than 5000+ items, but each iteration/recursion pulls only 99 items out of 5000+ items at a time.

    I have to recursively/iterate the piece of code 50 times to pull 5000 [i.e. 5000/99] items to…

  13. Allow to use or at least find published to Marketplace SPFx solutions on SP2019

    Currently it's not possible to find published to Marketplace SPFx solution on SP2019.

    It would be good to have possibility to achieve SP2019 users with SPFx solutions that currently published to Marketplace. Such solutions could have description or even links to packages that could be used for SP2019.

    Or if it possible - publish process to Marketplace could be extended with additional package that could be used for SP2019

    Another idea is to extend SPFx schema additional property - Url to SP2019 package (or to custom page where additional description could be posted for SP2019 users that want to install…

  14. Metadata explaination

    Hello,

    Our company is currently moving our files to SharePoint and will be adapting to Metadata file sharing.
    We have a lot of different kind of Metadata, documents and employees and want to be very clear what should be filled in as Metadata. Some of our Metadata need some more explanation of what to be filled in. Is that possible to add? For example a text that appears when you click on a small question mark. We also want to be able to do this with the different alternatives if that is possible.

    What do you think, is that possible?

  15. Reduce cost for additional SharePoint storage

    Hi,

    Would be great if you could consider lowering the costs for additional SharePoint storage. 0.2 $ per GB per month is one of the most expensive storage now a days in the market.

    Any timeline planned or already considering to lower the costs?

    Thanks

  17. .NET Core + CSOM add option to change the "modified by" user name

    The new support for .NET Core with CSOM is based on an admin user authentication with access token. We can't assign a user to the be the item "modified by" property. It automatically takes the admin to be the "modified by".
    This is important since the end user was the one who performed the action and not the app admin.

  18. Implement support to invalidate custom property pane controls

    At the moment custom property pane controls cannot invalidate the whole property pane. This means if you enter an incorrect value for your custom input, the property pane will still apply it (or the apply button will be enabled).

    It would be great to have a way to make it possible to invalidate the property pane like the OOTB property pane controls. This would have a huge benefit for all the controls of the @pnp/spfx-property-controls (https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-property-controls) project which is used in a lot of projects.

    More details for this can be found in this issue on Github: https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/3440

  19. Give us the ability to call an api from a site script and not just a flow using the triggerFlow action

    Currently we can trigger a flow from a site script using the triggerFlow action as described here.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/site-design-trigger-flow-tutorial

    However it would be nice to extend this to allow us to trigger a webhook or another endpoint (eg azure function).

  20. Add the css for 'text-overflow' in Column Formatter.

    I want to truncate the string which crosses the width and add '...' at the end. Currently I am able to do that except for adding the '...'. It can be done if the column formatter supports 'text-overflow: ellipsis'.
