  1. 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??

  3. Site Design and Site Script - increase cumulative actions to atlest 50 or

    show some other way to handle bundle of actions to run in the background instead of showing the execution of actions in the script.
    User like to wait for the system to perform background tasks but not the limitations to the features .

  4. Expose PopWindowPosition from sp-property-pane

    When using the PropertyPaneLink method, the popupWindowsProps property contains a window position property. This property has an associated enum in the type definition, however that enumeration is not public. Also, intellisense in VS Code does not show the label.

  6. RegistrationType of Command Set Extension

    Hello,

    How to make the Command Set extension to work for all types of Lists? What value need to be given for RegistrationType in elements.xml? We don't want the entries to be added for each and every listtype. Just RegistrationType=List should be sufficient for all list types. Please suggest.
    Thanks!

  7. Fix the issue regarding sharepoint list column name

    Sharepoint will not be able to issue the xml list of lists when one of the column is named with symbols only such as "***" or "-" . If this is causing issues they should either be resolved or the column should not permit being named in this way.

    thanks

  8. 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.

  9. Using add-in only / app-only permissions with search queries in SharePoint 2016 (On Prem).

    Currently we're not able to leverage the SharePoint Search API using the app only permissions within SharePoint 2016 (On-Prem). It should work the same way as it does in SharePoint Online (supports search queries).

  13. Allow page-level application extensions

    Currently, application extensions can work with known locations, and with toolbars for lists, but there is no (supported) way to create extensions that would allow you to add toolbar buttons to pages.

    If we want to add a button that is visible when a user is editing a modern page so that they can do stuff within the page, there isn't a (supported) way to do that.

    For example, I want to add a button for my content editors that verifies their content for WCAG compliance, or make sure the content adheres to corporate guidelines before they save the page.

  14. SharePoint.Modernization.Scanner

    The April 1, 2019 Modernization upgrade is coming, but the SharePoint.Modernization.Scanner app doesn't work. We cannot identify what will be affected by this April 1, 2019 change.

    Unfortunately, my company has/will not pay for Developer Support, which is what the Microsoft Support help desk is asking us to do to fix this problem.

    I suggest that Microsoft fix the scanner and/or allow us to OPT OUT of the April 1, 2019 change.

  15. Instead of telling us what the product can do, wouldn't it be nice if you told us how to do it. If microsoft would simply display solutions

    Instead of telling us what it can do wouldn't it be nice if you actually showed us how to do something like BCS. I am tired of hunting for hours to find solutions to program BCS when Microsoft could actually tell us how to. I don't need to hire 25 people from India to do it, I just need to know how. SHOW ME!

  16. Enable configuring sp-page-context settings on the workbench

    when developing spfx webparts that will serve as listforms (for example added to edit form.aspx), we can use sp-page-context splits and splits item to determine the list and item we are working on.

    it would be nice if the workbench could let us configure these parameters so that when developing, we could mimic the real environment.

  17. Make CSOM license Linux friendly

    CSOM has restrictions on distribution for Windows platform only. Make the CSOM license linux friendly because tons of people want to use CSOM platform independently to avoid having to use the REST API.

  18. Certificates Created by SharePoint

    Since 2010 there are a set of SharePoint Deployed Certificates for SharePoint Security Token Service, SharePoint Security Token Service Encryption, and SharePoint Services. When a Farm is Created, the SharePoint Root Authority is not set to be trusted. When a farm is created or when a server is joined into a farm the SharePoint Root Authority could be added in as trusted to potentially mitigate slowness that may be experience per this KB:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2625048/site-slowness-because-of-sharepoint-sts-certificate-crl-checking
