  1. Add web part size information to web part context

    Expanding on the WebPartFormFactor concept, it would be great to be able to natively get information about the size of the current web part zone hosting the web part. This would allow us to more easily offer optimised UX based on how the web part is being displayed (eg: if the web part is in a 1/3 or 1/2 width zone, show fewer items per row than if it's full-width).

    This can currently be achieved with native JS measuring element widths and resize handlers, but it'd be much cleaner and more reliable to have native integration, especially as more layout…

  3. Fix the problem with multiple line text field entries not appearing as they are written in a native form. This information should export.

    enable the multiple text line information to export as is into Excel and interface to it's original entered values, not the code for interoperability.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
