  1. Adding Apps from Catalog or Store using CSOM API

    As provisioning process, we would love to either add apps from app catalog or store directly using CSOM APIs. This should include the 'I Trust it' model as well. This will help in automating the entire site/sub-site provisioning and making sure apps are available after site is created.

      Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. We’re planning to provide ALM APIs to support the installation of add-ins from the app catalog to sites. Store automation is not unfortunately in short-term plans due to complexity with licenses.

    • 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…

      • Add support for library packages in the SharePoint Framework

        When building web parts I'd like to be able to extract common code to a separate library that can be shared amongst the different web parts.

          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.

        • Add support for Single Page Applications to the SharePoint Framework

          Angular2 provides an excellent user experience, especially when tied to Bootstrap (v3 or v4) suitable for creating immersive experiences where the whole of the SharePoint chrome is replaced (other than the top bar).

          However integrating it with the SharePoint REST API framework is cumbersome and unless extensive work is undertaken to mock SharePoint the unit testing and rapid deployment is very unpleasant if possible at all.

          The SharePoint framework provides a rapid deployment and unit testable mechanism for developing SharePoint functionality but is limited to single web parts.

          Please extend the model so that it can be used to create…

          • Add additional permissions to GraphHttpClient

            With the graph GQL gone, having this "easy" method to query Graph API directly from SharePoint when already authenticated is a huge must have.

            For example I'd ask priority on the permissions that let you fetch Recent Files, Trending Files, Trending People, and Planner tasks for the current user. Those make the most sense to be featured on intranet home pages. We do this currently (and it is quite messy with adal.js, particular when it comes to token refreshes), but has lots of end user value.

            I have 4 custom web parts today in a SEWP. One gets recent documents,…

              Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. This is planned to go live late 2017 or early 2018. Tenant administrator can grant additional scopes to be exposed to the SharePoint Framework solutions. This was announced in the Ignite 2017.

            • Ability to upgrade all Apps in environment on update in App Catalog via Store or Side load

              Currently when you deploy an App, any instances of the App will not upgrade until manually done via User Interface. It would be great to be able to Upgrade the App in the App Catalog from the Store or via Side Loading and it upgrade all instances at once.

              • Ability to run development and production versions of the SP Fx web parts in two different site collections

                Currently, the SharePoint Framework solutions are deployed as tenant wide app packages. Thereby, all instances of the web parts refer the JavaScript files from the CDN location specified in the packaged that is deployed in the app catalog. We need the ability to run Development, Staging and Production environments as different Site Collections in the same tenant.
