  1. Transfer "Edit columns in form" in a site script

    The same way we can specify which columns will be in each view in a list section of a script. We should be able to choose which columns will be by default in the edit form ("Edit columns in form" NOT power app)
    We create sites with Site designs and this can be very helpful.

  2. 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…

  3. Allow the ability to select a 'Picture Library' for the Image Gallery web part in SharePoint online

    Image Gallery web part in SharePoint doesn't allow you to pick a 'Picture Library' when selecting the 'Dynamically display images from a document library' option.

    This seems like an oversight.

  4. adding columns should affect only local document structure

    Adding a new column in a subfolder adds the same structure to the whole Sharepoint. I cannot in my wildest dream imagine how anyone can think this is a good idea. I cannot think of any (actually good) file structure that works like this. This is one of the worst design choices I have encountered. I mean, Microsoft in general is truly bad at most user experience, but this just goes beyond what I can comprehend.

    At least allow it to be a choice if columns are global or local.

  5. Make sure everything that is available from the SOAP api is available from CSOM

    Currently you cannot get some things from the CSOM/REST api that you can get from the SOAP API.

    • For SharePoint Lists - Getting the AnonymousPermMask property requires the Lists.asmx soap web service.

    • For SharePoint Sites - Getting the NoIndex, AnonymousViewListItems, and AllowAnonymousAccess property requires the Sites.asmx soap web service.

    • Listing all site collections in a web app also requires SOAP.

    We definitely need to go through everything in the SOAP API and make sure that all still-relevant properties and operations can be done with CSOM/REST.

  6. Listing SharePoint Site Collection URLs in a Web App should have a special permission to avoid giving too much admin access

    Listing site collection URLs in a web app should be a special permission by itself. Many times you end up giving full admin rights to a user just because you need that ability. And this forces you to violate the principal of Least Permissions.

    Make the ability to give access to list site collections without being a full admin.

  7. Display list of attendees for an Event

    In the Event webpart, we should be able to see a list of anyone who has added the event to their calendar. It seems like an obvious request, but an organiser would surely want to see who's attending their event?

  8. 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

  11. Site Design View Customer FormatJSON Choose Layout

    When adding the formatterJSON for a view allow another JSON value to choose the layout of the view e.g. List, Gallery etc. This is available through the UI but not in the Site Design schema.

  12. Allow directly fetching latest published version of an item or page

    When versioning is turned on, it's possible to hide drafts, either from everyone except the creator or just from users without edit rights. When presenting items from lists, either in custom solutions or using the built-in list webpart, this means that the general viewer may be presented with a different view than a user who is responsible for creating or checking content.

    In order to display a consistent "end user experience", we have to manually fetch a specific version (the latest version that has _ModerationStatus eq 0). In the built-in list view webparts, this isn't even an option.

    Drafts are…

  13. titleresource in view class in CSOM

    We can access to titleresource for lists and fields and to nameresource in content type. (get AND set)
    Unfortunately, it seems titleresource is missing in view class.
    That would be great to help in translation management.
    Thanks

  15. Forms - allow for visibility of external recipients' email addresses or name

    When creating a Form, I need to create forms that has to be sent out to not only staff but also external private emails. Currently there is no way of externals to access the link to the Form unless I select "Anyone with the link can respond" but that then means that all responses will return as "Anonymous" which does not help me tracking who has responded and who has yet to respond. Is there a way that you could allow for the option to either have the responses as "Anonymous" or have the responses show the email address of…

  16. 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.

  17. Please Fix - Adding calculated lookup column breaks Lists when creating new List from existing List.

    I created a List in Teams and opened in SharePoint Online to customize it.
    I can create a 'calculated column' and set information type as 'Lookup' and point to data within the list I'm creating.

    This works as expected however, if I want to reuse this List (Create new list from existing list) the creation breaks. I get an error "Parameter targetListName references a resource that could not be found".

    If I take out the calculated list 'Lookup' column, I can reuse the List.

    Please Fix.

  18. make Sharepoint OLEDB connection string compatible with the standard, allow easy import / export from and to SQL Server

    It is very hard to import from / export to Sharepoint lists into / from MS SQL Server on a computer without admin rights. Both are Microsoft products. I am an BI expert based on Microsoft technologies since 1999 and MS products are the most terrible data sources and targets: Excel and Sharepoint.

    It is very hard or not possible to automate ETL between Sharepoint and SQL Server on a system without admin rights and without "Flow" premium features.

    • SSIS OLEDB provider doesn't work in SSIS, because the Sharepoint connection string doesn't comply with the standard and SSIS will support…

  19. Let users create Lists in Teams even DisablePersonalListCreation is set to true

    By following the guide to "Disable creation of personal lists" (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/control-lists) and set "Set-SPOTenant -DisablePersonalListCreation $true" users can't create Lists within Teams anymore.
    The "Create" button is inactive. There's no valid reason why DisablePersonalListCreation has an impact on creating Lists within a Teams Channel where the list is saved in the SharePoint site of the M365 group which is assigned to the Teams.
