  5. Official documented Api needed to fetch modern Pages View count

    SharePoint modern pages Social bar View count apparently does not use Search Managed property ViewLifeTime or ViewsLifeTimeUniqueUsers. Fiddler traces shows that some Internal Apis are used to fetch modern pages social bar view count. It would great if Microsoft release Public documented API so that custom SPFx web parts/extension in need of modern page view count, could utilize the API

  6. When creating an SPFx Extension for a custom header, provide a configurable property that allows the composite header to be hidden

    When developing a SharePoint Framework Extension to display a custom header and/or footer, the SharePoint Composite Header can be very redundant to the custom header.

    The Composite Header (css classname is 'ms-compositeHeader'), is what SharePoint provide out of the box and includes the square site logo, site name and navigation.

    When creating your own custom header that includes all of these things and possibly more, the existence of the Composite Header is redundant and can be confusing for users...(Ex: redundant navigation).

    While CSS can be used to hide this, such a technique is not playing within the rules of only…

  7. Allow Site Collection App Catalog location be configurable

    We live in a tenant where we have over 25 different companies. When it comes to customizing and supporting the tenant catalog is too broad, but the site collection catalog adds support nightmares with syncing and managing the apps and installs in each one. It would be great if the site collection admin could choose an additional Site Collection app catalog to pull from. This would allow for us to manage company specific apps in a Company site collection catalog much like the tenant catalog while still getting site specific catalog items from the site collection catalog. In this model,…

  8. SPFx Webpart - Have custom group in Modern Pages

    Currently there are no ways we can have a group created for custom SPFx webparts developed. We have to use the existing groups mentioned here, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/web-parts/guidance/simplify-adding-web-parts-with-preconfigured-entries#predefined-modern-groups. Need to have ability to have custom groups for Webparts

  9. SharePoint App Id/Secret registration owner details

    Currently we have business case where SharePoint App registration(SPO App ID/Secrets) are vastly used by users for their applications. I had discussion with MS Development support engineer and there is no way to track the owner of SPO app registration (SPO App ID/Secrets).

    It would be helpful if during registration of SPO app id/secrets, the owner information also be asked, so that whenever SPO App registration expiry comes near by, customer can notify that your SPO app id expiration coming please renew app secrets so that business application keeps running.

    Preferable solution would be online connector and also Powershell commands…

  10. Surface ListViewCommandSet commands on the preview pane for documents

    In Modern Document Libraries we have the Preview option in the ECB that opens the document in the Browser. While Previewing the document it seems we have SOME of the option that are present in the ECB for the item in the list view (Share, copy link, download,Copy To, and Version History) displayed at the top of the page.

    It would be great if we could have our own commands surfaced at the top of this preview page as well.

  12. Make InvalidateList JS api accessible to SPFX extensions

    SPFX extensions give us ability to add our own commands and to show/hide them based on different conditions e.g. state of the selected documents/

    These commands usually change the state of the document, but onListViewUpdated from BaseListViewCommandSet is not triggered automatically (which is fine) and there is no way to manually trigger onListViewUpdated.

    Through some google searches I found that there is module itemInvalidator with method invalidateCurrentItemSet. But it is hidden from JS API users.

    The onlu options we have now are:
    1) reload whole page - unacceptable in most cases
    2) make user to reselect the item - one…

  13. Make triggering a Power Automation flow from site script free again

    Recent licensing changes for Power Automate has made the Request - When a HTTP Request is received trigger a Premium action. This essentially removes the ability to call a Power Automate Flow from a Site Script since every user making the call would now require premium licensing.

    Whats worse, is any Flow that was previously configured to use this trigger from a site script can no longer be updated and saved. You are given an error message about inaccurate licensing and prevented from saving. So anyone who had been using it for Site design and site script automation can no…

    We have image files saved in the News Web Parts on our SharePoint site.
    When setting up the CDN Edge Server, the image file is not applied to the CDN because it is passed through the API even when checked from the developer tools.
    We would like to clarify whether it is applied internally and hope that it will be changed if it is not applicable currently.

  17. Option to remove social media functionality from Sharepoint

    This is only really useful if everybody in the company uses it. I'd rather Sharepoint developers spent their time on something useful, like a functional search engine.

    For example, I look at my Sharepoint profile probably once a year. If someone posts something I need to see there, I'm not going to see it for months.

    This overlaps with social media functionality on Teams and numerous other products. Remove it from Sharepoint. No one in their right mind is going to seriously use it.

  18. Properties update bug

    Hey,

    We had problem with update of a Sharepoint item's property ( Single line of text).
    The max length of this property is 255 chars.
    We updated properties with a string that contain 250 char ( most of it is spaces).
    The API didnt block this update of the property, but afterwards this file didn't open on local application.

    That was a big bug for us because it locked more than 100,00o file in our system.

    Regards,
    Tal.

  19. Developer Site Template - Better Wikis, Git Repositories, and Code Sharing

    Currently we have communication sites which my business partners love. I however struggle with getting my development team to love SharePoint sites. It would be nice if there was a template for developer focused sites. For example a way to create API swaggers. A Git Repository that could be used to connect to Azure, Azure DevOps, other Software development platforms.

    Also the creation of wikis and tagging similar to Confluence sites would be nice. As a program manager I would love to have my program documentation as well as my developer documentation all on a single platform.
