I suggest you ....

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add managed metadata term store operations to REST API

    Currently term store operations are only available via JSOM. It would be nice to see this added to the REST API as well.

We absolutely understand the request and seeing vote counts around this, will help to further prioritize this work for next sprints.

    • Provide CSOM and REST API for recurring calendar events

      There is no obvious way to get details about a recurring calendar events through the CSOM or REST API.

      When querying a calendar list only one item is returned for the calendar recurrence item. Only one field identifies this is a recurring item. the fOccurrence field is a boolean field.

      When using the server side object model, properties are available to expand recurring calendar events to get the individual recurring items.

      The only way to do this for client applications is to go back to using list.asmx which is not great and I'm not sure how long this will be…

      • UserProfile.Manipulation.CSOM is needed on premises

        Now we can update UP properties via CSOM in O365, but not on premises. I would appreciate if this can be included on-prem, my customers 80% of the time are still on-prem

        • List.NavigateForFormsPages support in CSOM

          Currently it's not possible to set the List.NavigateForFormsPages property through CSOM as it is in the server API.

                  Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that this is absolutely in our roadmap and we are planning to address this request in future. Good to have though also the vote counts, so that we understand the demand around the request, which helps on prioritizing our internal work.

                • Allow publishing of content type hub content types via CSOM

                  You cannot currently use CSOM to publish content types in a content type hub in O365. Right now you must imitate the page post back to do it.

                  • REST API citizenship! (surface, roadmap and change log)

                    Besides the lack of detailed documentation around the REST API, given its importance as a major entry point for apps, it needs to be treated with more respect as a service offering. It's currently being updated in CUs and on SharePoint online without any notification of the changes being made (such as the $metadata endpoint appearing - was it in the August 2013 CU for on-prem?). We either need it to be released in a non-breaking change model (URL versioning such as the Twilio model), or messaging needs to be improved so we know when things are going to be…

                    • Provide the ability to write to Managed Metadata via app-only policy

                      App-only policy in the SharePoint App Model is very restricted regarding Taxonomy operations. Even if an app is granted full control over the tenant, it lacks the permission to do anything but read operations on Taxonomy. Please provide the ability to create Groups, Term Sets and terms using app-only policy.

                      • Import XsltListViewWebPart definition

                        It is actually possible to import the definition of a XsltListViewWebPart via LimitedWebPartManager in CSOM. However, not all properties are supported. Important properties like XmlDefinition, Toolbar, ViewStyle, .. are being ignored. There's no possibility to have everything set correctly not even manipulating the backed view after importing the WebPart. Please read also this discussion:

                            Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion. We are looking into closely on the input from the community around this and more specifically around the needed scenarios for the placeholders so that we could also potentially provide also specific customizers based on your requests – rather than just having an empty placeholder. Stay tuned!

                                    Please provide a well-known placeholder for the property pane or better a similar placeholder that let us create a sidebar.

                                    Having this ability would let us create powerful sidebars/toolbox extensions. This would be a super cool enhancement!

                                    • Line up list item pagination with REST API using $top and $skip

                                      Actually, the only way to paginate list items using the new REST APIs is to use __next property. There's no way to have a full working pagination using $top and $skip token as for any other REST call.
                                      See my comment here:

                                      • Programmatic way to configure search with CSOM

                                        There's currently no better way to configure search indexed and managed properties than export/import configuration. It's a huge pain when building search related apps and a black box, we need something better

                                        • Add CSOM support for connected WebParts

                                          At the moment it does not seem possible to create WebPart connections via the Client Side Object Model.
