    Closing as this is not an enhancement. It’s a potential issue in existing capability and reporting these in UserVoice is not the right way to get things sorted out.

  2. Not intuitive AT ALL. WHy so many steps to publish!?!!!

    Scrap the whole program and think through how to set up the functionality of Sharepoint. All I'm trying to do us publish my site and it is unnecessarily complicated. Nothing is intuitive, would take a month to tell you everything. Scrap all the code and rebuild the entire program from scratch...so it makes sense. Remove all of the "Overthinkers" from program engineering staff (have them work on something else). To many redundant, over thought out processes that make simple processes too complicated. I feel like I am forced to look through 10 drawers of beautifully detailed knives and I desperately…

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, there was no concrete or actionable input on this one.

  3. Reverting to modern theme

    Hi,

    I changed a team site them to classic in SharePoint Online. I cannot find a way to revert back to modern look, I'm currently stuck with the classic look.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now.

    This is actually a security feature in the browsers which are blocking mixing https and http requests on the same page and we cannot solve that for you in SharePoint side.

  7. Open source the CSOM

    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.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. We are still committed on providing .NET Standard version of the CSOM, but are not planning to change the engineering processes to have CSOM released as an open-source version.

    This change would require significant changes on how the engineering processes work and would have impact on the agility of providing capabilities through CSOM and REST APIs. As we are investing heavily on the Microsoft Graph API surface, we are not planning to allocate resources to this work.

  8. Scrap "client side web parts". You can do all this with normal javascript so why complicate it?

    Scrap client side web parts are just HTML and JavaScript but require the developer to install configure and use a whole suite of old hat wannabe command line software. This is a step back to the ancient art of command line cryptic development. Really, even notepad more advance then this.

    We do acknowledge that moving from classic JavaScript development to more structural industry standard patterns require some changes in your development process, but we absolutely want to standardize and move SharePoint development models aligned with what other platforms do. This changes might feel huge and even step backward, but it’s highly beneficial for the larger customizations. With the SPFx and client-side web parts you also get centralized control and governance, which is not there with random embedded JavaScript models like with Script Editor web part. We absolutely understand your feedback, but looking into adoption numbers (metrics of usage) of the SPFx, there’s really no reasons for us to turn back from this journey which we started a few years back.

  9. It should be possible to "save teamsite as a template"

    To save a site as a template used to be so easy! But now you need to be a developer to do this for modern teamsites or communication sites! Why??

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now.

    Classic save site as a template capability was designed in away which is no longer valid implementation style in the cloud.

    We are in a journey with the Site Designs and Site Scripts potentially provide end user driven export capabilities, which could be used to achieve similar outcome, but we are not planning to provide classic “Save site as a template” capability in the modern SharePoint sites.

  10. new-pnpsite

    Allow creation of modern sites using the cmdlet "New-PnPSite" using an Azure App ID. Currently this errors with "App-Only is currently not supported".

    App-only creation fo modern sites are not currently supported, so New-PnPSite cmdlet cannot also do this. This cannot be solved until the native API supports app-only, so we would rather recommend updating the request towards supporting this capability in general, not only specific with new-pnpsite.

  11. Share the code for the OOB modern Webparts

    Please can you share the code for all the OOB webparts on the github SPFX repo?
    Developers can then use these as examples of the methodology and improve upon them. An important factor would be related to presentation as those not familiar with react have to understand how this works.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now.

    We do however review and provide input on the SharePoint PnP / Dev community activities and we do suggest on having a look on the activities and open-source projects on this side. See http://aka.ms/sppnp

    We are not right now at least planning to share our code as such but will be using SP PnP as a channel to provide patterns and practices for developer activities.

  12. SharePoint online Templates

    How about having the ability to save templates for SharePoint content, sites and list, regardless if SharePoint is set publish or not.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now as many of the templates simply cannot be saved as a template as the capability technically cannot be supported.

    We are looking into having native support for saving Site Designs from the existing modern sites and there is PowerShell / API level support for templating through SharePoint PnP (open-source) initiatives.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now as that would be a security risk and normally all browsers would anyway block mixing both http and https. This is really not even something what we can control in the SharePoint side as it’s dependent on the browser settings.

  14. SharePoint 2016 On Premise _api/Web/Lists('listID')/subscriptions support (WebHooks)

    Please provide subscriptions API (_api/Web/Lists('listID')/subscriptions support (WebHooks)) SharePoint 2016 On-Premise which helps in webhooks, desktop notifications, mobile/push notifications and cross platform notifications to name a few.

    Webhook are supported in SharePoint Online and in SharePoint 2019 and even thought they’d absolutely also provide additional value on older versions, we cannot provide them without significant platform changes, which cannot be justified for the older versions.

  15. Combining different extension Types

    Right now SharePoint Framework Extensions support three different types of extensions: ApplicationCustomizers, FieldCustomizers and CommandSets . Can we combine two extensions under one project. Example: Based on selected List items in the list, do some customization in the header bar using Application Customizer. Please suggest.

    This is absolutely supported and you can have as many extensions or web parts in single solution talking between each other. There are numerous options for the components to communicate with each other. One of such options is demonstrated in following sample in SharePoint GitHub – https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-webparts/tree/master/samples/react-rxjs-event-emitter. Since this is not really a new feature request, we will close the issue. Would suggest having questions and discussions in StackExchange, GitHub or in SP Tech Community.

  16. Cannot resolve schema file path in manifest.json using SPFx.

    When I create a new SPFx webpart, "$schema" path is wrong in WebPart.manifest.json. It must be "client-side-component-manifest.schema.json", but current is "clientSideComponentManifestSchema.json".

    Thx for submitting this. This is clearly a bug and should have been already addressed with the v1.2 release. In future, if you have seen any specific bugs or random issues, we would recommend using https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues issue list to start a discussion with SharePoint engineering. Uservoice is mainly for the new feature requests and possible issues can, unfortunately, get hidden here. Thx anyway for the submission and please let us know in the issue list if you still have any questions.

  17. List-Library Settings Access via CSOM

    Provide extra capabilities to deal with SharePoint List settings using CSOM.

    Currently some of the properties of List are not accessible using CSOM.

    Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, we need to have more specific requests around what’s needed. We would appreciate more specific properties which you need so that we can evaluate exposure of them one-by-one. Thx.

  18. Get-PnpTenantSite Enhancements

    Get-PnPTenantSite -Detailed -IncludeOneDriveSites
    We would like to have the following:
    • we would like to be able to target only onedrive sites and/or group sites
    • we would like the report to run quickly as per the GUI report in the admin console - that seems to run a similar query in about 2 min.
    • we would like a report to show all onedrives / groups / sites created after date

    Thank you for your input around the SharePoint PnP PowerShell. PnP CommandSets are however not part of the official product, so we support and have a discussion around them in the GitHub. In this case, would suggest creating a new entry to the issue list in the PnP-PowerShell repository at https://github.com/SharePoint/pnp-powershell/issues with these details. Asks are understandable and absolutely reasonable. Do also remember that PnP effort is dependent on the community contributions, so we cannot guarantee on the timelines for addressing any requests.

    Thx for your suggestion and time taken for providing us your input.
