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".

  1. 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.

    • Provide items version history with CSOM

      Provide the Version History feature on list items with CSOM, i.e. provide which metadata has changed with the previous value.
      Currently, the only way to retrieve versions is through the FileVersionCollection/FileVersion objects which provides only the VersionLabel, CreatedBy, CreationDate and Version Url.

      Ideally, we would need a ListItem object holding all the attributes and values for each version - or at least the attributes that have changed.

      • Allow SharePoint Sites created via O365 Groups to be managed in SharePoint Admin Center

        Each Office365 Group creates a new SharePoint Site, this is not currently shown in the Sharepoint Admin Center so it is not possible to manage specific sharing rules, storage and compute quotas and other advanced settings. Such sites should appear in the Site Collection lists to be manageable.

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • 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…

              • Finish the SharePoint Framework documentation

                Trying to learn a new framework is hard enough when the documentation is complete. Sadly the SharePoint Framework Reference at https://dev.office.com/sharepoint/reference/spfx/ is not even close to anything that could be considered thorough. Much of it consists of a bare minimum that describes what an item is but not how or why you would want to use it. Some items are described with the name of the item itself, a circular reference that informs no one of anything. Many items have no description in the description column for the item. And far too many links land on pages that only say…
