  1. Please add custom css capability for list form body json

    Hi,

    While header and footer allows custom CSS, this is missing in body section which is forcing us to opt for external solutions. Please allow "style" attribute in the body section too.

    Thanks.

  2. improve accessibility

    Running scans on several SharePoint pages we've bumped into a few accessibility issues that seem consistent across the platform.
    1. Color contrast with icons in the header do not meet WCAG 2.0 AA standards
    2. Content is not always contained within a landmark
    3. ARIA tag issues
    - Elements with an ARIA role that require child roles contain them
    - Ensures role attribute has an appropriate value for the element

    Please work to improve these accessibility issues across the platform to improve access for everyone.

  3. Enable SharePoint to directly open OFT files in Outlook (not only save as option)

    Outlook templates in my team are a useful way to improve productivity and message consistency. Presently using OneNote as the means to have these accessed and used, but moving to SharePoint have found they can't be opened in the native application (Outlook). I really would like this addressed as it detracts from what otherwise is a really good way of bringing work information and tools together.

  4. Edit/change 'text' column to 'calculated' column

    I want to change/edit 'text' type column to 'calculated' type. I see other datatype options when I try to edit but 'calculate' type is not there. I get calculated type only when creating new columns but not when I need to change/edit columns. This feature is very useful for customers like me.

  5. Fix the ability to expand empty fields over REST for multi-lookups

    Currently if any field on an item being looked up to as part of a multi-lookup is empty, the REST API throws an error and returns no items.

    Expected or Desired Behavior:

    Expanding a lookup field where multiple selections is enabled, and the expanded field on the lookup item is null, omits the field.

    Observed Behavior:

    An HTTP 5000 error is returned.

    For example, the error message is Cannot get value for projected field Assignedx005fEMail., where Assigned is a "Person or Group" column and EMail is the user's email address. This occurs if the user has no mailbox. …

  6. Use MS SP Rest API v1 (via a SP app) to change content of the “Modified By” field w/ a string of preference

    Using the MS SP Rest API v1 (via a SP app) allow to change content of the “Modified By” field with a custom value like "acme" (where "acme" is not a username but the name given to the SharePoint app at the time of registering it) instead of SharePoint app for a file uploaded using the app.

    Having a meaningful defined as "Modified By" of importance for tracking and audit purposes.

  7. Don't hide the full-width option from web parts!

    This is really frustrating. I'm trying to use the Planner web part and it only has 4 columns, my screen is not ultra wide, yet it is artificially restricting the amount of horizontal space the web part is allowed to take up - even though I chose the single column layout. This causes the 4rth planner bucket to get cut off with a scrollbar. This is really annoying that I can't have an option to easily use the full-width of the page.

  8. Infopath Designer Online Power Automate App

    SharePoint forms
    If you're like most InfoPath developers, you learned InfoPath to interact with SharePoint. SharePoint is great, but the default forms are a bit pedestrian and don't allow for customization or business logic without InfoPath. Well, integrate all of InfoPath desktop into the default forms. Power Apps is not my answer, make SharePoint Forms better.

  12. Publish SharePoint Framework applications to the marketplace in both SharePoint Store and Teams Store

    As I am submitting a SharePoint Framework solution to the marketplace and allow user to install by themselves. I know this feature is currently only target on the SharePoint Site but not Teams store, there is currently no option to only target Microsoft Teams store for SharePoint Framework based extensibility.. However there are more development on the Teams App with SPFx, is there any roadmap to allow partner to publish the solution for both SharePoint and Teams store.

  13. Empty field on expanded lookup columns causes error on SharePoint REST API

    If we try to expand a lookup column and one of the expanded field has no data this will cause the error "Cannot get value for projected field Userx005fEMail" and will return no value.

    For instance, this will return a error if one of the user email has not been initialized.
    /_api/web/lists/getbytitle('My List')/Items('39')$select=User/Id,User/EMail&$expand=User

    Lookups to other lists also crash if we don't fill all the expanded fields with something.

  15. Walkthrough guide and samples on how to deploy to the Office Store

    Create a walkthrough guide on how to extend SPFx and deploy solutions in to the Office Store. There are enough resources on how to create SPFx solutions but we need sample solutions and documentations on the process to follow leveraging sample applications deployed to the Office Store.

  16. Switch to sass (Dart-Sass) instead of node-sass

    Node-Sass and libsass are deprecated. While still maintained, no new features will be added.
    This is especiall true for "@use" which is replacement for "@import" which will be phased out in the future.

  20. Scrolling of pinned columns in Filter pane (currently have to use 'See All' to view more than 5 items)

    To add a scroll bar to each of the (possible) 3 pinned columns shown in the Filter pane.

    On average, I have 10 different values per column and the most used ones are not in the first 5 of the Filter list.

    You cannot change the order of the Filter list as it is based on the number of instances of each value within the column. In my case, the ones with the lowest number of instances are the most used! Hence the need to scroll
