  1. Allow us to create sections and layouts from SPFx app

    Please allow us to create sections and layouts on modern pages that we can control with either by user defined ID or class.

    By this way, I can have tabbed functionality on modern pages.
    Solution at high level:
    - User can select the tab count from the app
    - Sections are created based on the number
    - User can change the layout too
    - They can add the web parts on corresponding sections

    Once user selects the tab, we can display the corresponding section and hide the others.
    Give us a method to create dynamic sections from SPFx app.

  2. Environment Setup Too Complicated - Citizen Developer

    I am a citizen developer and have very little software development background. The SharePoint Dev Platform environment setup is:

    (1) Too complicated (installing node.js, gulp, yeoman, dev certificates etc)
    (2) Fills me with fear (e.g. using npm to download hundreds of files from unknown places)

    SharePoint is a Microsoft product, development for which should be handled by a development environment installer such as Visual Studio Community Edition. Within Visual Studio Community Edition I should just be able to click 'SharePoint Framework' and the environment should then be setup to support SharePoint Framework development. No command line, no going off to…

  3. BUG Found - Time Zone bug

    SYMPTOM:
    - O365 user sfox@kellylyonslaw.com receives and email
    - She then copies (drags / drops) that email into SharePoint Company Docs folder.
    - If the email message is viewed in SharePoint, the date is +7 hours (which is GMT from Arizona). That is, it reflects a 7-hour difference on when the email was received in Outlook
    - As part of diagnoses we have looked at the Email Properties (header) itself within the Outlook 365 Desktop App
    - The Email properties / headers reflect that the Item was received with the same +7-hour difference, too
    - We have verified that the…

  4. SPFX component type for container of other web parts or alternate section format

    I'd like to be able to have one web part that shows or hides another web part, or a web part that can contain other web parts. The system has section layouts, now, but I'd like to take that a step further.

    This comes up because I've been looking for a solution to have a SharePoint modern page that can switch between two different views to a document library - a custom web part, and the standard web part. When I was trying to find a modern solution, I did see that older versions of sharepoint have had a fairly…

  5. Update React for SPFx1.4 for SP2019.

    If we don't upgrade React to 16.8 atleast then we can't use react hooks,

    > so can't use latest fluent UI controls as they all use react hooks
    > can't use latest validation libararies like react-hook-forms as also rely on same
    > can't use latest version of PNP.JS/controls

    That makes mostly like an abandoned platform rather. Most of the customers with us are on-prem, so this is essential for the future SharePoint IMHO

  6. Māori language

    Can we have the Māori language added as an option to the Language Settings of a Site Collections? In Aotearoa New Zealand, the Māori language is experiencing a renaissance and being from a University that is promoting the use of the language it would help a lot if we could have SharePoint sites that utilise the ability to switch from Māori to English.

  7. Fix the problem with multiple line text field entries not appearing as they are written in a native form. This information should export.

    enable the multiple text line information to export as is into Excel and interface to it's original entered values, not the code for interoperability.

  8. Allow us to download a hubsite along with its associated sites as a solution template

    I would like to download a hubsite along with its subhub sites as a solution to avoid wasting time in creating the site all over again

  9. Add web part size information to web part context

    Expanding on the WebPartFormFactor concept, it would be great to be able to natively get information about the size of the current web part zone hosting the web part. This would allow us to more easily offer optimised UX based on how the web part is being displayed (eg: if the web part is in a 1/3 or 1/2 width zone, show fewer items per row than if it's full-width).

    This can currently be achieved with native JS measuring element widths and resize handlers, but it'd be much cleaner and more reliable to have native integration, especially as more layout…

  11. Automated Flow for Collect Feedback to replace the Collect Feedback SharePoint 2010/2013 Workflow for Office documents..

    We need an automated Flow for Collect Feedback to replace the Collect Feedback SharePoint 2010/2013 Workflow. I need to route Office documents--specifically, Microsoft Word, or Visio Drawings, Powerpoints, or spreadsheets, to stakeholders (Engineers) for their feedback. Specifically, these are procedure documents that require redlines (Tracked Changes) and the ability for the reviewer to edit/add comments. Word already does that, yes, but I need to be able to run a SharePoint Workflow that is NOT an Approval workflow. It's to be used for collecting redline feedback, reviews, tracked changes, and routing to several users. Not including that Collect Feedback Workflow in…

  12. When you add both a list properties webpart and a file viewer webpart on a single page (in the same section), both do not work.

    When you add both a list properties webpart and a file viewer webpart on a single page (in the same section), both do not work. Can this be checked and fixed?

  13. Allow to use or at least find published to Marketplace SPFx solutions on SP2019

    Currently it's not possible to find published to Marketplace SPFx solution on SP2019.

    It would be good to have possibility to achieve SP2019 users with SPFx solutions that currently published to Marketplace. Such solutions could have description or even links to packages that could be used for SP2019.

    Or if it possible - publish process to Marketplace could be extended with additional package that could be used for SP2019

    Another idea is to extend SPFx schema additional property - Url to SP2019 package (or to custom page where additional description could be posted for SP2019 users that want to install…

  16. Modify gulp tasks to support node_modules in a parent directory

    As per described here https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/4853
    It would be very useful that gulp tasks support that the node_modules folder is in a parent directory, so that we can use pnpm shared-workspace-lockfile = true

  17. Modernize React Framework and Scaffolding

    I appreciate what is being provided, allowing development on the front end is great. However it would be nice if the toolset was able to align more closely with modern React development. This request is for 1. at least a fork of the framework provides a more functional API using current React constructs: the choice of modern ECMAScript instead of TypeScript, hooks instead of classes, composition instead of inheritance. 2. And a starter app scaffolded that utilizes this new API to the framework.

  18. Sync SPFx solution with both extensions and webpart to Teams

    The "Sync To Teams" option in the SharePoint App Catalog throws an error if you try to sync a SPFx package with both Extensions and WebParts:

    {"error":{"code":"-1, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.UnknownError","message":{"lang":"en-US","value":"Unknown Error"}}}

    It should be possible to sync a SPFx solution package with a mix of Teams components and other components. This will allow us to use our existing SPFx solution packages and not have to create seperate packages for Teams
