  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Add new header layout called "Extended" in setSiteBranding properties

    Currently for Site Design Script under "setSiteBranding"'s "headerLayout", the only available options are still "Standard" and "Compact". Please add the new "Extended" option that's available through the UI.

  6. 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

  7. Ability to edit a link in a document library

    When adding a link to a library (whether via New>Link or dragging a .url file in), that shortcut can not be overwritten or edited. You have to delete it and create/copy a new file. This is a usability issue for users who expect it to work like other file types.

  8. 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.

  9. Cannot reference field name when formatting Display Form, but it works when formatting a column in list view.

    I can reference a list field by [$TFID] when formatting a list view's column, but when I try to reference the same field when formatting the display form's header with JSON, that reference to that field doesn't work. That field contains a calculated value.

  11. Event for list item comment

    List item commenting is a really nice addition. I have already stumbled upon case(s) where customers want to run a flow for newly added comments. What I am suggesting is to shoot off an event when a comment is added/manipulated. Basically, commenting = item updated

  14. Tab order to comply with WCAG

    As a municipality we are imposed to follow the EU directive for Web Accessibility WCAG which, among other things, specifies how the tab order on a website need to work.
    "Users should be able to tab through interactive items in a logical order, usually from left to right and top to bottom."
    We need to be able to set tab order on the websites manually or that the websites automatically sets the tab order to comply with the EU Web Accessibility directive WCAG for tab order.

  15. Add IFC format as a global open 3D standard for Building-oriented objects in Sharepoint Spaces

    Once the Sharepoint Space has been rolled out among all tenants, it would be nice to have a wider and especially accessible 3D data format range.

    Regarding Architectural, Engineering, and Construction objects, there is a global open standard based on 3D smart objects called IFC (Industry Foundation Classes), developed by buildingSMART International (+ info https://www.buildingsmart.org/standards/bsi-standards/industry-foundation-classes/ )

    It would be a consistent approach from Microsoft to implement this 3D format in Sharepoint Spaces since is a global and open Standard.

  17. Use of internal column names when configuring the body of SharePoint forms

    I would like to be able to use internal column names when configuring the body layout for forms. The display names is dependent on the language settings which is far from ideal. As it is right now I have to enter all possible language display names for all columns.

  20. 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…
