  1. Ability to add full width web parts to pages

    The full width section on communication pages only allows the hero and images web part. It would be great if we could deploy custom full width web parts that can be added to this section.

    • Column CommandSet Extension

      An additional SPFx Extension to support adding a command (menu item) to the Column dropdown of a Modern ListView.

      It could be configured very similarly to the field customizer extensions. Something like:

      columnCommandSets={"FieldName":{"id":"columncommandsetID","location","someLocationValue","properties":{}}}

      Then for location (similar to the ListView Command Set extensions) a few locations could be provided:
      SortSection
      FilterSection
      GroupBySection
      ColumnSettingsMenu

      Within the Column CommandSet Extension itself you would have these methods:

      onListViewUpdated(event: IColumnCommandSetListViewUpdatedParameters): void

      onExecute(event: IColumnCommandSetExecuteEventParameters): void

      The standard methods of onDispose, onInit, onProvideServices should also be included.

      interface IColumnCommandSetListViewUpdatedParameters {
      /**
      * The currently selected ListView rows, at the time when the event occurred.
      */
      readonly…

      • Provide method for extending out of box SPFX web Parts

        Much like the classic SSOM model of extending OOB web parts, provide a way (or open source them ;-)) the SPFX web parts to allow Devs to build upon what you have already built.

        Its a bit old school, but has value in providing Devs a way to extend existing web parts leverage them and tweak them according to specific requirements. Perhaps with a change caveat that if you change it does not update our custom ones based upon it.

        • Enable Communication Site Pages to work with custom Site Columns and Content Types

          If communication sites are meant to replace the classic "publishing" pages, site developers will need to be able to make use of custom Site Columns and Content Types as we have in the past. Currently developers can add custom elements to the Site Pages library in which Communication Sites pages are created, but those custom elements do not display when the pages are put in edit mode or the form to edit the page's properties is displayed.

            • Allow users to move content easily to new folders or subfolders created.

              Please allow users to move content around easily. It is a bit frustrating having to redownload images or other content onto my computer, just to reupload it to the new folder.

              • Anonymous users used to access the embedded JS add-ins in Excel Online now they cannot.

                Excel files can host add-ins in them. And when the users opened the Excel file on Excel Online through a Edit No-signin link, they could activate the addin. Now they cannot. Only authenticated users can see these add-ins. This change in behavior causes problems to people like us who try to embed add-ins in Excel files and share them.

                • Allow calling an HTTP-triggered Flow after installing SPFx solution in a site

                  When creating sites using a site design (recipe), one of the available verbs is calling an HTTP-triggered Flow to perform some additional configuration on the newly created site.

                  When installing SPFx solutions in a site, we should similarly be able to specify an HTTP-triggered Flow to be called as a part of the installation process. This would not only allow developers to provision configuration beyond what's currently supported with Feature XML, but also create a consistent development experience across the different workloads (site designs vs. SPFx).

                    • Allow to use Office UI Fabric Icons and other fonts as Command Set icons

                      It would be great if we are able to use font icons instead of url to images for Command Set extensions buttons icons.
                      This allow 3d party extensions look more aligned with 1st party (same style, same icon color)

                      • Filters and sortings in RelatedItemsList don't work after installing CU's

                        We have a Sharepoint Farm 2016 upgraded from 2010 and 2013. Each month we install the CU in order to always be up to date.

                        Today I noticed that the filters and sort options in a RelatedItemsList of any DispForm don't work anymore. Each call returns 0 elements (empy array).

                        By clicking on the column header the menu opens but no filter values are loaded since the server returns an empty array. By sorting on column no results are returned too, so the list results empty.

                        The installed CU us the 16.0.4561.1000, July 2017.
                        Same beaviour installing CU 16.0.4588.1000.

                        • Extensions: Property Pane / SideBar Placeholder (Right)

                          Please provide a well-known placeholder for the property pane or better a similar placeholder that let us create a sidebar.

                          Having this ability would let us create powerful sidebars/toolbox extensions. This would be a super cool enhancement!

                            • Need expansion of the number of characters that can be used in a REST Call from SharePoint Designer Call Action

                              The number of characters available before the REST Call returns BadRequest is much too low. This is especially true when using SharePoint Designer Call action to copy a document from one library to another. Another option would be to configure the call for copyTo to use parameters so that the entire call is not required to be in one URL, instead the parameters could be added to a the parameter dictionary

                                At the direction of your help staff we use Chrome as our main browser. As of last week, filtering is not working, and when I spoke with two different support from 365 they told me that Chrome will no longer be supported and that we need to switch to IE, which we continually have problems with...locking up constantly.

                                • Extensions : application customer include a left-nav placeholder which will allow options to hide, pane or customise

                                  there are many requests for leftnav customisation options which often come in business requirements. Nav is always something that users get quite excited about.

                                  why not combine this with the work being considered on new placeholders for the application customizer

                                  include a simple script way of specifying that you want

                                  no left hav
                                  narrow left nav with icons only (like VS code)
                                  standard left nav but in flyout pane to conserve space(like modern details pane)
                                  fully customised and specified in extension

                                  • Enhance FieldLink class with additional properties - ShowInEditForm, ShowInDisplayForm, ShowInFileDialog/DIP

                                    This idea was originally posted here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/31414426-enhance-fieldlink-class-with-additional-properties
                                    I added it here as this is the correct place for CSOM Server-side ideas.
                                    Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFieldLink and Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.FieldLink does not publically expose properties to set ShowInEditForm, ShowInDisplayForm, ShowInFileDialog/DIP. This is only possible to set using CAML markup. It would be great to be able to set this using the object model, both server side (for On Prem) and client side.
                                    In addition the On Prem client object model does not contain all available properties recently added to SharePoint Online client object model suggested here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329220-sharepoint-dev-platform/suggestions/15147075-enhance-fieldlink-class-with-additional-properties
                                    Can you please also add these to On Prem…

                                    • Field Customizer: Ability to call ootb render method

                                      Allow to call out of the box render for cell in custom field customizer.

                                      Use case:
                                      based on user permissions render out of the box LinkTitle cell or custom copmonent with additional logic.

                                      This scenario is needed for all types of fields that are rendered as complicated HTML, not just text (LinkTitle, User or Group fields, etc.)

                                      • Allow Karma extensibility

                                        At the moment the Karma configuration is completely closed down, you cannot make additions to it like what you can do with webpack. It would be great to have something similar to extend the Karma configuration to our needs like adding additional reporters, like for example have a way to include HTML test reports. This would make unit tests a lot better / easier compared to checking the console output.

                                        • SpFx Hide page until WebParts Load

                                          Simply hide the page canvas until all SpFx WebPart promises have resolved for modern sites

                                          This would conceivably
                                          1. Improve page load performance by not forcing the browser to display several loading gifs/fading animations at the same time
                                          2. Improve user experience by displaying a complete page to the user rather than the page "jumping" constantly during the first 3-10 seconds of loading
                                          3. Allow developers to add minor CSS updates to the page prior to render using the SharePoint Framework without noticeable "jumping"
