  1. Expose REST Endpoints in the SharePoint UI

    Here’s an idea I had a while ago based on a conversation I had with some of the other SharePoint MVPs: expose the REST endpoints and documentation right in the UI for those who have the appropriate permissions. It could be a little icon at the bottom of any page where there are relevant end points. All content is security trimmed anyway, so no one is going to see an endpoint they can’t use (though if they can fathom the docs they can know what endpoints there are available).

    Think about it:

    You’re on a List Settings page, and you…

    • Managed metadata navigation term set sorting

      When a term set has 'Use default sort order according to current language' set in its custom sort tab the setting gets automatically set to 'Use custom sort order' when a user creates a new page. This fits the definition of a software bug because it is an an unexpected result and unintended behaviour. In all other settings in the term store administration and in site settings they only need to be set once and they stay set. But this one you have to go and set it back to the 'default' one after creating each new web page in…

      • Provide an option to hide webparts in modern webpart toolbox

        Please give us the option to hide webparts on a site level from the webpart toolbox. E.g. if I don't want my users to use the twitter webpart or any other custom or OOTB webparts. Currently there is no way to control what webpart is visibile on what sites. We could do this in classic by adding/removing webparts from the webpart gallery. Some webparts just don't make sense on certain sites. Some webparts don't work on certain sites. There are so many reasons, this is just a must-have!

        • Ability to Freeze Headers in SharePoint Lists

          I would think the ability to freeze headers in lists (some become very large) and being able to see the header (similar to how Excel provides the ability to freeze headers) while scrolling should be a given.

          • Add support to hide List View Command Set buttons

            In the classic experience it's possible to hide ribbon buttons and menu options in the ECB. In the modern UI this currently isn't possible.
            Please add support to also hide OOTB List View Command Set buttons and ECB items in the modern UI.

            In the Classic view this could be done by a Custom Action:

            <CustomAction
            Id="RemoveRibbonButtonLibrary"
            Location="CommandUI.Ribbon"
            RegistrationId="101"
            RegistrationType="List">>
            <CommandUIExtension>
            <CommandUIDefinitions>
            <CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.Library.Actions.ExportToSpreadsheet" />
            </CommandUIDefinitions>
            </CommandUIExtension>
            </CustomAction>

            But this currently doesn't work for the Modern UI.

              • Enable geolocation field in Sharepoint 365

                I see that it's possible to create a map view for the geolocation field in SharePoint, but not for the web-based Sharepoint 365. Please enable this field as default within 365 for online users.

                See here for desktop instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/create-a-map-view-for-the-geolocation-field-in-sharepoint

                      • Extend SPListItem[string fieldInternalName] to use Internal as well as Display Name

                        Users have the ability to change the display name, which could then have the unintended consequence that they break code in a web part or elsewhere because the code is looking for the field based on its display name that has now changed.

                        Users can;t change the internal name though. So it would make sense and be a more safe way to program web parts etc if we had a simple way to get the field value based on the internal name of the field.

                        Eg a developer creates a field named FinYear, then after it is created they change…

                        • Web part for displaying existing Delve reports and organization chart in a SharePoint Online page

                          There is in need for either a Web Part or a method to show the already existing Delve reports and Organization chart on a SharePoint Online page. This can eliminate the effort and the need for depending on other mechanisms/tools for showing these details on a normal SharePoint Web Part Page. The same goes for integrating other applications such as ServiceNow with SharePoint Online.

                          • Need to be able to see all text in a column in a view in some way

                            For all column types that don't currently wrap in views, e.g. single line of text, please either:
                            1) add a tick box Wrap Yes/No for each column
                            2) add a tick box Wrap Yes/No in the view for all columns
                            3) add a tick box Wrap Yes/No in the library settings
                            4) or show all text when hovering over a column item in a view

                            Views are currently unmanageable unless you make sure in the content of a column any differences in text are right at the beginning of the text. Which really isn't how life works...

                              • Creating image maps in SharePoint online

                                There is no direct Image Mapping option available in SharePoint online. The images have to be either broken down and individually linked or other methods such as Image Mapping using Excel and PowerPoint has to be done. This requires more effort especially if there are many images or the image is really big and has lots of mapping to be applied.

                                • 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

                                    • Column Formatting changes Date column display to ISO format

                                      Column Formatting - fix date display when using @now in column. Add formatting to set the background-color of the currentField based on another column date value being @now + 86400000 (1 day) changes the display of all date columns to ISO8601 format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ). I can set the column formatting on those columns to fix this, but if I group by a date field, those values don't attend to the column formatting.

                                      Any way to avoid the date display changing to the ISO8601?

                                      • Custom List, version history filter by column name

                                        When review the version history in a list it good be nice to have the possibility to filter by column name. It would be like a kind of track changes by column.

                                        • Make internal SP links display the same icon as its target

                                          In SharePoint, .url items currently display a generic web page icon no matter what the link leads to. It would be great if it could work similarly to shortcuts in WIndows, where it is apparent which file type it points at.
