  2. SPO anchor links need to work after authentication is completed

    Microsoft's engineering team confirmed that after authentication is completed and redirected to the original SharePoint URL, the fragment (#anything-after-the-hash) part in original URL is missing due to its current design. This is part of a browser limitation as the browser itself doesn't send the URL fragment to the server.

  3. Allow extending SharePoint Admin Center using SPFx

    It would be nice to have the ability to extend some of the functionality in the SharePoint Admin Center. Specifically, the ability to deploy SharePoint Framework Web Parts into the Admin Center (via an App Page?). Currently, the community builds lots of SPFx Web Parts to fill the gaps in the Modern UX.

    Such Web Parts include:
    Theme Manager
    Site Design Studio/Manager

    These are SPFx solutions that have been built to help better manage our environments through a UX experience (as there isn't one via First Party). It would be nice to have a centralized location where these SPFx solutions…

  4. Make webhooks for changes on the site metadata

    Allow developers to start a webhooks subscribtion on changes to a site, for example: When a site is connected to a hub site, when a site is promoted as a hubsite, when the theme is changed, navigation is changed and such events.

  5. Modernize React Framework and Scaffolding

    I appreciate what is being provided, allowing development on the front end is great. However it would be nice if the toolset was able to align more closely with modern React development. This request is for 1. at least a fork of the framework provides a more functional API using current React constructs: the choice of modern ECMAScript instead of TypeScript, hooks instead of classes, composition instead of inheritance. 2. And a starter app scaffolded that utilizes this new API to the framework.

  6. Sync SPFx solution with both extensions and webpart to Teams

    The "Sync To Teams" option in the SharePoint App Catalog throws an error if you try to sync a SPFx package with both Extensions and WebParts:

    {"error":{"code":"-1, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.UnknownError","message":{"lang":"en-US","value":"Unknown Error"}}}

    It should be possible to sync a SPFx solution package with a mix of Teams components and other components. This will allow us to use our existing SPFx solution packages and not have to create seperate packages for Teams

  7. Reduce miss-reading news articles

    Hi everyone,

    I use SharePoint online with modern UI. I want to know how to notice if someone missed reading News articles?
    If unread notices appear in "unread boxes" and disappear after reading, miss-reading may be reduced.

    Thanks & Regards

  8. unresolved case related to DLP policy in Sharepoint

    • Case #: 20357756
    • Created on: Saturday, June 6, 2020 4:21 PM
    • Title: DLP policy in sp
    • Description: We have been testing DLP Over-ride function in Sharepoint and found a bug- If a policy is once overridden for a file by person X (doesn’t matter the owner or not), any other person Y can choose the file (not opening the file) and share it directly without having to over-ride except in one case i.e if Y opens the doc, click at “More Options” at the Policy tip displayed and ignores it(doesn’t actually Over-ride it). Could you please…

  10. Please stop removing fonts (font sizes) from modern pages

    It ssems suddenly MS has removed the 17pt fontsize from Modern Pages, resulting in all our pages that used this font to revert to the next higher: font 18pt, which is way too big. Also in all sites the theme was changed from 'Blue' to 'Teal'? This resulted in the fact we had to redo dozens of pages in dozen of sites. Waste of valuable time.

    Please stop from removing font sizes or changing themes without pior notice.

  11. 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…

  12. Use Sequence parameter to sort ListView Command Set in menu

    The sequence parameter (int) in the custom action schema should allow us to sort the action within the whole menu.

    Actually it's only used to sort SPFx actions among themselves.

  13. 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.

  16. An API for fetching the list to which a command extension is attached

    Currently when the extension(command set) is used for a list/library, and when the same library view is shown in modern page, the list title returned in a SPFx command set extension refers to the SitePages library when the list is surfaced through a list web part on a site page.

    The command set extension is reading the title from this.context.pageContext.list.title.
    Because the page in context comes from the site pages library, this chain will refer to the site pages library.

    can we get an API for fetching the list to which a command extension is attached

  17. Standardize the look of new Yeoman-generated SPFx web parts

    Creating a web part using the Yeoman generator should produce a web part that is visually indistinguishable from an out-of-the-box SharePoint web part. It should encourage new developers to adopt the UI Fabric look without requiring additional efforts on their part.

    On newly created web parts using the SPFx, the CSS styles are inconsistent with the first-party web parts.

    For example, the .container CSS class defines box-shadow: 0 2px 4px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), 0 25px 50px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1); and max-width: 700px;

    None of the other out-of-the-box web parts define a shadow or a max width.

  18. Restrict app-only applications from accessing certain sitecollections

    When registering a SharePoint App on tenant level with Sitecollection permissions, all sitecollections can be accessed using an App-Only context in that tenant.

    We have lots of customers who want to exclude some sitecollections to be accessed, for example those labeled in AD with a sensitivity label, or tag, or certain URLs.

    Please make it possible to support this.
    A good place to do this, is in the Azure Portal.

  20. Please provide templates with the same features as in SPD in Power Automate

    If you are forcing users to convert to PA, then there must be equivalent capabilities as in SPD. Please provide equivalent templates of "Approval", "Collect Feedback", and "Collect Signatures". Allow for workflow history logging. Provide capability for sequential appprovers. It is impossible for me to convert all my workflows to Power Automate when all of the capabilities/actions in SPD 2010 workflows are not available in PA.
