  1. Extensions: Application Customizer - Loading JS Files in <HEAD> Tags

    The current architecture of the SPFx Extensions allow for us to populate "Placeholders", such as PageHead and PageFooter with content.

    If we need to load JS files though, be them stored within SP or externally, we would need to add external references into the <HEAD> tag of the page.

    We can use the current placeholders to dynamically update the <HEAD> tag, but this seems less then optimal.

    Classic UCA's allowed for multiple JS references, as well as the sequence in which they were loaded. (Ex: Load jQuery prior to loading a Utility JS file that is dependent on jQuery.)

  2. Provision SPFx (.sppkg) add-ins on a site on-premise

    ALM API is available now for SPO. SPFx now is available for SP2016 on-prem, too, since Feature Pack 2. But still there is no way to provision .sppkg files (either form local disk or from AppCatalog) on a site. Please, add this. There is no migration path from provider-hosted add-ins to SPFx add-ins for our applications now, because method LoadAndInstallApp() which worked for .app files does not work for .sppkg files.

  3. Make it possible to completely hide an SPFx web part at runtime

    It should be possible to create a web part that will decide to hide or show at runtime -- for example, when you want to say "Don't show this webpart if there are no results", and it should show no spaces or gaps in the page.

    Although it is possible with CSS to approximate this, there is always a gap in the page.

    I would suggest that you make the web part visible in Edit mode, regardless of its settings, so that page editors can access the web part settings.

  4. SPFX ListViewCommandSet > use Fabric UI ICON

    Within the SPFX 'extension' framework, there's no way to specify an icon for a ribbon button - list view extender.

    This blog post mentions it - but no resolution ;
    https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/642

    Ideally, there would be a property for ; officeFabricIconFontName

  5. Add an option to disabled fixed header and footer on SharePoint Extensions

    Fixed header and footers sometimes take up too much space on modern pages. I've had several customers ask for the extensions to be fixed to the top/bottom of the page, rather than to the top/bottom of the screen.

  6. spfx-extension should allow customization of a CommandSet for a page.

    We'd like to add additional buttons/commands to the CommandMenu when a user is viewing pages in our SharePoint online tenant. I thought creating an extension using spfx would allow this but it appears limited only to ListViews.

  7. Updating existing projects to newer SPFx builds

    When building an SPFx project on current version of SPFx build, it is very hard to upgrade this to the latest SPFx builds that are coming out after while still enjoying all the new features that are a part of that latest version.

    This includes breaking changes that prevents the code from compiling, but also more importantly: added configuration options and features to the different config files that are a part of the project, or changes to the schema that adds a few more options that are a part of the new SPFx build.

    These changes today have to be…

  8. SPFX ListView Extension should also work in the list(preview) webpart

    When adding the "List (preview)" web part to a modern page, i expect that ListView Extension do also work in this webpart.

  9. make the SPFx workbench wider

    When developing a web part for "supportedHosts": ["SharePointFullPage"] it will be nice to have the full width of the page while debugging in /_layouts/15/workbench.aspx too.
    It is very hard to see just half the width of the final web part.

  10. Allow for admins to specify CDN location when installing SPFx App package

    I'd like to have the option for an admin to 1) load upp the script and other resources in a customer owned or managed CDN location and 2) allow the admin to specify that location when adding the .sppkg file into the app catalog.
    This would allow for more flexible usage of SPFx applications and also allow enterprises to have better governance of the script resources - which would increase the adoption of SPFx and also allow ISV's to create more solutions.

  11. Extensions : application customer include a left-nav placeholder which will allow options to hide, pane or customise

    there are many requests for leftnav customisation options which often come in business requirements. Nav is always something that users get quite excited about.

    why not combine this with the work being considered on new placeholders for the application customizer

    include a simple script way of specifying that you want

    no left hav
    narrow left nav with icons only (like VS code)
    standard left nav but in flyout pane to conserve space(like modern details pane)
    fully customised and specified in extension

  12. Extensions: AppCustomizer - Register Event Listeners in Modern Page DOM

    It would be great if there was a controlled way to leverage AppCustomizers to register event listeners in modern pages. This capability will empower enterprise developers to create sophisticated auditing and usage reporting solutions for SPO. e.g. Tracking how many times a given user has downloaded files by tracking the “click” event on the file download button and coupling that event with page context information.

  14. Open Source or at least Source Open the Yeoman Generator

    Plain and simple, I was hoping to see the source of the generator get released. The main reason is to see how things are done and how we can possibly improve on your process.

    I'm fine if you don't want to go full open source in the sense where you take PR contributions from the community (although I don't understand that reason), but at the very least you should do what's considered source open where you share the source code but don't accept PR's & contributions.

  15. Field Customizer: expose List Item data to TypeScript API

    Currently there are some problems with getting List Item data from API for Field Customizer: event.fieldValue that is available in onRenderCell event sometimes contains not what actually expected or what is not enough.
    For example, Hyperlink or Picture field has 2 properties that should be available in Field Customizer: url and descripbtion, but only url is available now.
    Of course, most of the needed values could be requested via REST but it would slow the rendering for the column significantly.

    Given that the information is already preloaded on the page, ideally this information should be exposed via an SPFx TypeScript…

  16. Mega Menu Item Customizer (SPFx)

    It would be great to have an SPFx Extension for mega menu items, similarly to Field Customizer.
    It will allow to add custom icons/pictures, change rendering to have, let's say title and description, and so on.

  17. Make SPFx projects compatible with TSLint VSCode extension

    Make SPFx projects compatible with TSLint VSCode extension by either moving the tslint.json file to the root folder or by creating a new tslint.json at the root that instructs the VSCode extension to look for rules on the config folder

  19. JSON formatting: Add .parse() and .split() operands

    JSON formatting is nice and dandy, I would like some more operators though.

    Specifically .parse() to interpret the contents of @currentField as a JSON object, and split() to interpret is an an array, split by whichever operator is provided.
