  1. JSON formatting: add support RTF multiline text fields

    JSON formatting supports a few field types, but currently we cannot do any kind of JSON treatment on multiline RTF columns.

    The JSON formatting framework outputs @currentField as text inside the selected elmType.

    I propose two possibilities which are not mutually exclusive to improve compatibility:

    elmType: html

    this elmType would assume the content of the @currentField to be well-formed html, and just use that at the column cell's content.

    @currentField.html
    This selector would treat the contents of the currentfield as well-formed html, and would allow it to be inserted inside an elmType.

    Bonus points if the html tree can be…

    • Provision to delete blocked users from SharePoint online after Azure AD Sync

      There is no provision to delete blocked users from SharePoint Admin Center after the Azure AD Sync has been completed. The result is that, the users who leave the organization still comes up in the SharePoint Staff Directory. While the Azure AD and SharePoint sync was performed, the blocked users were not filtered out. Also, the Synchronization properties are not available in User Profiles in SharePoint Admin Center since it's on-premise. Therefore, there should be a mechanism to place the filtering or update the filtering in the Admin Center for blocked users.

      • Fully client-side deployments without App permissions

        All of the scaffolding solutions you have tutorials for require the ability to package and deploy using SharePoint Apps uploader & deployer. That step is by definition not client-side because SharePoint administrators must upload it to their App system which resides on the server-side.

        What if I need to scaffold solutions locally then move them into an on-premises SharePoint 2013 site that does not permit Apps? Am I just going to have to undo all the work you have done by recodingit into the older fashion deployment for the script editor?

        • JSON formatting: Add .parse() and .split() operands

          JSON formatting is nice and dandy, I would like some more operators though.

          Specifically .parse() to interpret the contents of @currentField as a JSON object, and split() to interpret is an an array, split by whichever operator is provided.

          • Rest api filter support tolower and toupper

            In the documentation the odata filter methods of tolower and toupper are not supported. This seems strange as this is a very common way to ensure matching of data even when text case is unknown. Without this functionality it is difficult if not impossible to do case insensitive searches.

              • Provide a way to view an HTML file in the browser reather than downloading the file. This totally defeats the purpose

                SharePoint Online does not provide a feature for placing a html file for viewing but rather it downloads the file. This totally defeats the purpose.

                    OfficeJs Addin Forward current message: Header and Body as an attachment.

                    Can you please create an API endpoint that will allow a developer to forward the current message Header and Body as an attachment to an address. At the current Moment I believe when we try to forward a message as an attachment we have a message body with no header.

                    • Linked to item lookup column (from a different list) pops up dialog box - but JSON button/icon/href display doesn't open dialog box

                      I created a column that is a linked to item lookup field to a different list and pops up a dialog box to that item when clicked. I only get @currentField.lookupId or @currentField.lookupValue for the JSON formatting - and would like to have the "@currentField.lookupUrl" so that I can display a button or different link text - yet have it act like the "linked to item" link which inherits whether or not it opens in a dialog box from the "advanced settings" or the list.

                      • UserProfile.BatchUpdate.API is not working anymore. Please fix.

                        I am using the UserProfile.BatchUpdate.API for like 2 years without any problem. I have accidentally noticed that the API is not working anymore. It is not important, if i trigger the sync job with one user or multiple in the JSON file or if i try to sync multiple attributes or one attribute, i am just getting an internal error like this one:

                        Job ID: 07bb3ef9-60a2-46d0-a467-396b9428abf5

                        Logged errors: Failed to import the custom properties due to an unexpected error.

                        Please fix the api!

                          Please open source the CSOM code. This would allow community to add features like throttle support, .net core and others. Microsoft could update it from time to time to add new support for new APIs etc... also.

                          It would allow the community to port it to platforms and runtimes that MS are not yet able commit time to doing.

                            As CSOM proxy assemblies will need to be 100% aligned with the server side APIs and they are automatically generated on daily basis in our build process, we cannot open-source them or it would have a severe impact on the agility of us shipping new features on weekly basis in SharePoint Online.

                            SharePoint engineer coordinates, however, the open-source PnP CSOM extension work, which gives you the capability to extend the CSOM without impacting the oob CSOM lifecycle. This means that the community can add additional capabilities and features without negatively impacting the normal release process and agility of releasing new features.

                            You can use PnP CSOM NuGet simply by adding that dependency to your project and it will add all needed dependencies, so it’s as simple as referencing oob CSOM NuGet, but you get more.

                            PnP CSOM is currently used by 14k tenants on monthly basis and it has more…

                                  • Office UI Fabric as web components

                                    Office UI Fabric is an awesome library, which contains a lot of components and UI elements. It's a great library to build UI experiences for SharePoint and Office 365.
                                    The downside is, that the most feature-rich version of the library built with React. If you want to use this library, you should use React without much options. There is Office UI Fabric JS out there, however it's not actively supported and developed as React one. Also it's difficult to reuse it in other frameworks. Office UI Fabric is must-have library in almost any SharePoint Framework solution.

                                    SharePoint Framework has framework-agnostic…

                                      Usage Report in SharePoint - More detail needed.

                                      For the usage report in SharePoint, ability to customize the fields and date parameters.

                                      Also the SharePoint Usage report showing HITs and Unique users’ needs to have a fuller more complete description of how the data is collected and what falls into each category, for example:
                                      - A hit, does this include users on the SharePoint site, windows explorer view, One drive sync, etc?

                                      • Option to disable telemetry in SPFX and PnP Libraries

                                        I would like the option to disable telemetry as part of the gulp commands when creating production packages and referring to PnP Libraries that also track telemetry from within.

                                        e.g. gulp bundle --ship --notelemetry

                                        • Site Design and Site Script - increase cumulative actions to atlest 50 or

                                          show some other way to handle bundle of actions to run in the background instead of showing the execution of actions in the script.
                                          User like to wait for the system to perform background tasks but not the limitations to the features .
