    • Administrator awareness of present of non-NoScript sites

      Given the (awesome) new features with easier access to retrieving bearer tokens for secured resources, this is also potentially opening up huge security issues. Since anything on a page can access the consented permissions, script injections can be used to use on these sites in non-expected ways.

      SharePoint today has a feature to prevent some malicous scripts from being executed on a page through the NoScript setting, although this is only present on all sites for newer tenants or the Modern sites. There are many tenants and site collections out there that still are script enabled; either before the default…

        • Write to Web Property Bags

          The ability to both read and write to the various property bags would be very helpful. Currently it's possible to read from a web property bag, but not to write. It'd be even better if the other property bags supported this.

          • Allow the ability to know when a cooment has been made on a modern page so that a flow can be attached to it.

            At the moment it is not possible to know when a comment has been made on a Modern UI Page. If that comment is blasphemous, it will need to be removed asap. A way of doing this would be to attach a flow to the page so that when a comment is made an appropriate person can be notified. That person can then take appropriate action on the comment, including removing it.

            • Users with SharePoint Admin roles should be able to add (and remove) Site Collection App Catalogs

              A user that has been granted the role SharePoint Admin should have administrative rights over the site collections. This should include being able to add (and remove) site collection app catalogs. This should be particularly true when that user is also the site collection administrator.

              The error message says "Must have Manage Web Site permissions or be a tenant admin in order to add or remove sites from the site collection app catalog allow list"

              Site Collection administrators have manage web permissions, minimally, yet are unable to do so. This doesn't make sense. This was reported as a bug but…

              • Provide option to convert existing site to communication site

                For customers who are trying to completely modernize their large SharePoint implementations, it should be possible to convert an existing site collection to use the communication site template.

                It can simply be a powershell command that applies all the features/etc. it needs.

                It doesn't need to change existing content, just apply the styles and create the typical landing page for a communication site.

                It'll make it easier to adopt upcoming features (like adding sites to hubs, etc.)

                • Make it possible to completely hide an SPFx web part at runtime

                  It should be possible to create a web part that will decide to hide or show at runtime -- for example, when you want to say "Don't show this webpart if there are no results", and it should show no spaces or gaps in the page.

                  Although it is possible with CSS to approximate this, there is always a gap in the page.

                  I would suggest that you make the web part visible in Edit mode, regardless of its settings, so that page editors can access the web part settings.

                  • SharePoint Extensions on Classic Sites

                    Please, make it possible to use SharePoint Extensions on Classic sites in order to use common components throughout the tenant. A good example is the Footer, we want to use the same footer so we don't have to build two different components in two different technologies.

                      • Provision SPFx (.sppkg) add-ins on a site on-premise

                        ALM API is available now for SPO. SPFx now is available for SP2016 on-prem, too, since Feature Pack 2. But still there is no way to provision .sppkg files (either form local disk or from AppCatalog) on a site. Please, add this. There is no migration path from provider-hosted add-ins to SPFx add-ins for our applications now, because method LoadAndInstallApp() which worked for .app files does not work for .sppkg files.

                        • Cacluate total values

                          When on SharePoint Online, and coming up to the sum in the data list view. Example: one column has item sales price, another has quantity sold, another has cost to make, last sales tax. I like to make a column that will tell me the profit of that item for that day of everyday for that month. So when I set the sum for the total field, it would actually some me, instead of it being blank and I have to go through a 12 step process to view the totals.

                                Before December, when you shared with an external user with email address, it added the user as a person part of your Active Directory. Now when you share with an external user, a Sharing Link is created and the person signs in with a code.

                                It used to be that when a document was Shared externally, a managed property called "ViewableByExternalUsers=TRUE" it would bring back document shared externally. Since the new Sharing Links, this managed property doesn't seem to pick up that a document is shared externally.

                                Also on the https://[tenant].sharepoint.com//_layouts/15/siteanalytics.aspx?view=19 used to display any documents that was externally shared.…

                                    • Modern page extensions

                                      It would be great to add commands to the command set of a modern page, with similar events to list view extensions e.g. onListViewUpdated > onPageUpdated, and onExecute.

                                      The API should enable easy and reliable access to important page information like field data, published state, whether it is promoted as news, etc.

                                      • Extensions: AppCustomizer - Register Event Listeners in Modern Page DOM

                                        It would be great if there was a controlled way to leverage AppCustomizers to register event listeners in modern pages. This capability will empower enterprise developers to create sophisticated auditing and usage reporting solutions for SPO. e.g. Tracking how many times a given user has downloaded files by tracking the “click” event on the file download button and coupling that event with page context information.
