      • BUG: Online workbench doesn't reflect the theme colors of the parent web properly

        There is a bug in the Online Workbench that you are not able to test theming on your web parts when the following two themes will be used:
        * Dark Yellow
        * Dark Blue

        As documented in the Issue on GitHub https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1064

        This would be really beneficial for testing web parts and how they look like when different themes will be used.

        • TSLint

          Make SPFx projects compatible with TSLint VSCode extension by either moving the tslint.json file to the root folder or by creating a new tslint.json at the root that instructs the VSCode extension to look for rules on the config folder

          • SharePoint Framework Extension

            Sub: SPFX Extension - Subsite link override - Modern Experience

            In classic experience, we are redirecting the users to a provider hosted site request form instead of out of the box site request page(/_layouts/15/newsbweb.aspx) using custom action. We are trying to create a SPFX Application Customizer to replace this functionality by getting the Subsite button element by name and attaching a click event which will redirect the users to the provider hosted site request form. But the logic is not 100% working as there is delay in rendering the dropdown values on new button click.

            What is the right way…

            • External CSS and Source Maps during development

              During Development debugging CSS can be hard because all style resource are directly embedded on the page. Whenever I like to inspect a particular element it point to the workbench HTML somewhere and the origin of the CSS definitions are located.

              My suggestion is to treat CSS/SASS files during development in workbench as external files with source maps that point to the original SASS file rather then directly embed the CSS.

              In production the behaviour can stay the same.

              I think this feature would be beneficial for many developers.

              • Provide a method of setting composite index on custom lists via rest APIs

                Provide a method of setting composite index on a custom list via rest APIs. Currently, we can set single index on custom list fields. Setting composite index is only available via UI.

                • Provide a ChangeType for Data Governance label modifications in the Change Log

                  Currently any application of a Data Governance label to a List Item has only a SystemUpdate Change associated with it, even if the Label was applied manually by a user. When trying to detect a change in Label, this necessitates the inspection of every List Item following a SystemUpdate Change to see whether or not the _ComplianceTag field has changed.
                  Ideally, we would be able to make a ChangeQuery that did not include all SystemUpdates, but did include changes which involved the modification of a Data Governance Label.

                    • Column Formatting String Operations

                      Add additional string options to Declarative Customization Column Formatting. Specfically:

                      Unary Operations:
                      length
                      toLowerCase()
                      toUpperCase()
                      trim

                      Binary Operations:
                      indexOf
                      lastIndexOf
                      endsWith
                      startsWith

                      Additional Operations:
                      replace
                      substring
                      padStart
                      padEnd

                      The order of operands, the return value, and the functionality would all match their JavaScript equivalents.

                      Having these would greatly increase the power of Column Formatting both in terms of string formatting but also with powerful conditional formatting. Without these basic operations, Column Formatting is still pretty limited.

                      • Column Formatting Alt Attribute

                        Add the ability to specify the Alt attribute in Declarative Customization Column Formatting.

                        This is a required attribute for img elements to provide alternate text for an image if the image cannot be displayed or if a user is using a screen reader.

                          • Enable Modern Experience in lists on Add-In Webs, or remove the "Exit Classic Experience" link

                            Writing this here because this seems like a bug in SharePoint rather than something I could fix with coding help in StackExchange.
                            While working on a new Add-In for work, I discovered that a Picture Library that we have stored on the Add-In web is showing the "Exit classic experience" link on its view pages; however, for some reason the link doesn't work.

                            The library is a template-standard Picture Library, which is implied by the documentation to be at least not incompatible with Modern Experience. The page I am seeing this on is a list view page which is generated…

                            • Provide client side API to manipulate ContentType XmlDocuments

                              As far as I know, there's no way to manipulate XmlDocuments collection of ContentType objects.

                              On server side, we can directly use SPContentType.XmlDocuments to manipulate the collection, but I didn't find any client side way to do this.

                              Neither CSOM, nor REST API nor Web service provide something able to reach my goal.

                              XmlDocuments collection is useful to store content type related configuration. There is OOB configuration like policies, or receivers stored in this collection, and some 3rd party data too (at least we are trying to).

                              Thanks

                                  I would like to use the SharePoint Query builder. As we are used to have in the Web-part properties (like the CEWP).
                                  In SPFX I would like to use it in the Propertypane of a SPFX webpart.

                                  • spfx cli

                                    Add an SPFx-CLI (like Angular CLI) for scaffolding new items to SharePoint Framework Solutions. I know one could re-run Yeoman to add other elements but as SPFx Solutions evolve it would be nice to have something line spfx (g)enerare (a)sset list, spfx g a ct (Contenttype), spfx g (e)xtension command -name mythisandthatcmd

                                    • Target Audience property for SPFx web parts

                                      I understand the SPFx web parts are running in the user’s context. It would be helpful if the new framework has the target audience property

                                      • Add CSOM API to choose content database and quota when creating site collections

                                        In the April 2014 Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2013 (released on 7th of May 2014) you published the possibility to create site collections remotely via the CSOM API.

                                        Till today it's not possible to choose a desired content database where the site collection should be stored in or to configure a quota template.

                                        Senior Program Manager Vesa Juvonen from Microsoft wrote a detailed blog article about this topic and received a broad response from the community where many people need these missing features.

                                        See here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vesku/2014/06/09/provisioning-site-collections-using-sp-app-model-in-on-premises-with-just-csom/

                                        • Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items

                                          Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items. Works fine if under 5k items in the source list. This is contrary to the documentation on using rest - either update the documentation or fix this issue.
