  1. Provide CSOM API for Enabling/Disabling the option "Allow items in this list to be edited using Quick Edit and the Details Pane"

    Provide CSOM API for Enabling/Disabling the option "Allow items in this list to be edited using Quick Edit and the Details Pane".

    After migration of SharePoint Previous versions to SharePoint online, there are instances where the quick edit or edits from details pane needs to be disabled, for lists across thousands of site collections. This is very challenging task if has to be done manually for huge scale of site collections.

  2. Add an option to disabled fixed header and footer on SharePoint Extensions

    Fixed header and footers sometimes take up too much space on modern pages. I've had several customers ask for the extensions to be fixed to the top/bottom of the page, rather than to the top/bottom of the screen.

  3. API for "Create Team from Template" with Site Design

    We can do templating on SharePoint, through Site Designs and Site Scripts. We now also have the option to "Create a Microsoft Teams from Template".
    Unfortunately, both do not work together. We either have a templated SharePoint site with a generic Teams or a templated Teams with generic SharePoint site.

    I would love the possibility to combine both templating options. Preferrably with an API from day 1.
    This would give us an end to end templating scenario, where we can create preconfigured Teams with a preconfigured SharePoint site. (In the future, hopefully with a preconfigured Planner etc as well ;)…

  6. Allow optional permissions to webApiPermissionRequests so admin can approve some

    Allow users to specify multiple permissions in webApiPermissionRequests that admin can approve only some of them (not all or nothing).

    Also would be great if the application can request more/different permissions based on user configuration during runtime:
    Make a request to resource X
    Get access denied
    Prompt the user and open a new "request" for that resource during runtime

  8. Intercept page events, such as publish and save

    When a page event occurs. Allow the webpart to get this action and dismiss it, e.g. ‘No you can’t publish this page until this property is equal to x’

  9. SharePoint Add-in Document Library in AppWeb Does not render PowerPoint

    SharePoint Add-In AppWeb Document Library allows to create PowerPoint however once it is created, you click on the PowerPoint and it does not render. it throws an error. Word, Excel works fine however this might be an issue with OWA Office Web Apps and PowerPoint Online. This issue started appearing from Jan 2018 across all Office 365 tenants. Is there any resolution from Microsoft on this? https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint-Developer/Can-t-open-PowerPoint-files-from-a-Library-inside-an-Add-In/m-p/163739#M4419

  10. REST oData $filter should be able to work with managed metadata

    This is not supported using the $filter option. The only way to filter using REST is to pass a CAML query but not very convenient.

  11. Workbench: allow to change size of the canvas to match real pages

    It'd to have a button in the workbenches (local, online) to allow us to apply the "layout" (different boxes sizes, flowing behavior, etc) of a team site or a communication site so we can double check rendering of our webparts work well with production dimensions, flowing behavior etc...

    Today the only way to try to mimic that is the tablet mode in the workbench, the browser debug tools or just resizing the window. This offers a poor experience and doesn't guaranty me my webpart is in the same rendering context.

  12. Improved API feedback around throttling

    Currently working with the API's for drive, graph, sharepoint are very difficult due to the throttling that can be encountered.

    Each api offers different guidance to avoid throttling. Example are:
    1) use a special user-agent header
    2) respect the retry-after header

    Speaking with microsoft representatives they instruct us to perform major api processing in off peak hours. Additionally tenant's can have hard locks placed on them.

    This request is to get better information around tenant usage returned in the API's.

    1) If a tenant is hard locked, tell us in a distinct message so that don't just hammer the requests…

  13. Requires a support of "ActivateFeatureOnDefault=False" in SPFX.

    Currently there is no way to control feature activation in SPFX solutions. Features always gets activated even if its needed on demand.

  14. IDs are conflicting between multiple SharePoint calendars when download them in local outlook

    In SharePoint, you can add multiple calendars, but each calendar use auto-increment ID field, which can conflict with other calendars EventID when you download these events as .ics in your local outlook.
    Because outlook use .ics eventid to create a new event in your calendar. Now when you download events from the SharePoint calendars, they might have same IDs and outlook either wouldn't add same IDs event or in some case it will remove the exiting event with the same ID.

    I went through with Microsoft support and they agreed it is a restriction on SharePoint calendar object that we…

  16. Support OData $inlinecount operator in REST API

    The OData v3 specification (which I believe the SharePoint REST API is supposed to be v3) supports an operator to include the total row count for a query in the response. The Project Online /api/ProjectData endpoint supports it as well. However it seems the /api/Lists endpoint does not for some reason.

    Could you "fix" this so the Lists API is OData compliant?

    See section 10.2.3.6 here: http://www.odata.org/documentation/odata-version-3-0/odata-version-3-0-core-protocol/

  17. Enterprise Deployment of SharePoint Framework Apps in an On Premise Platform

    There is currently no good way to do enterprise level automated deployments of an SPFX addin into a SharePoint 2016 on Premise environment..

    Consider a case where there are 1000 site collections and we would need to deploy an SPFX app to all sites automatically. Currently there is no way to perform this deployment in an automated fashion. It is not possible through powershell, csom, c# or in an administrative UI.

    Having this ability would solve a large hole in capabilities with SharePoint Framework

  18. Add build parameters for overriding default config.json and package-solution.json locations

    Currently SPFx build process assumes that project only has one config.json and one package-solution.json file. For projects that are deployed to multiple tenants this limitation should be removed.

    Easiest way would be to add some build parameters that can be used to override locations of those files. e.g.
    gulp package-solution --ship -solutionfile mycustomfolder/package-client1.json

  19. Embedding of iFrames doesn't allow customizing of zoom %. To obviate need to scroll, customizing zoom % view would be helpful.

    Existing iFrame embed add-in doesn't allow customizing of zoom %. To obviate need for scrolling horizontally or vertically, customizing zoom % for viewing of smaller web parts would be helpful. (Tried CSS links and JS scripts but they are stripped out of HTML by SP 2013.)

  20. API support for followed sites

    There's an undocumented API (https://tenant.sharepoint.com/vtibin/homeapi.ashx/ ) to follow sites and query data around those concepts. For corporate intranet scenarios, we often want to present the data a different way, surfacing native SharePoint capabilities. In order to add a "follow" button on an SPFX web part, we'd need an API to access that.
