  1. API for "Create Team from Template" with Site Design

    We can do templating on SharePoint, through Site Designs and Site Scripts. We now also have the option to "Create a Microsoft Teams from Template".
    Unfortunately, both do not work together. We either have a templated SharePoint site with a generic Teams or a templated Teams with generic SharePoint site.

    I would love the possibility to combine both templating options. Preferrably with an API from day 1.
    This would give us an end to end templating scenario, where we can create preconfigured Teams with a preconfigured SharePoint site. (In the future, hopefully with a preconfigured Planner etc as well ;)…

  2. Deactivate feature using site scripts and site designs.

    There is a verb to activate feature. Sometimes we require to deactivate features which are not required while creating sites. Can there be a separate verb for deactivating features? Also activateFeature but it works only at web level features. Can we have it extended to activate at site collection level?

  3. [MODERN PAGES] Add web for adding CSS and Javascript on Sharepoint Modern Pages

    Add support for adding CSS and Javascript on Sharepoint Modern Pages.

    Here is an example implementation on github, but certainly my organisation will not implement it (straight out of github project), unless Microsoft can push this capability to Sharepoint:
    https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-webparts/tree/master/samples/react-script-editor

    Please see this image for more details, where I am trying to suggest adding a new Web Part for Scripts+CSS:
    https://i.imgur.com/dtpIzdY.png

    This capability is available in old Sharepoint Pages, so hopefully it should be easy to push in Modern Pages (which I really like to use).

    Regards

  4. Support adding custom CSS to modern pages

    It is silly that and "NoScript" turns off the ability to use css. There is a big difference between making a page readable and writing a web application. Fearing unspecified security issues, large company administrators select "NoScript" to be safe, making sharepoint online the ugliest content management system in the market.

  5. Allow certain parts of a Modern page to be hidden

    Outside of the standard areas of a Modern page that can be customized through apps (top placeholder, bottom placeholder, and web parts), we would love the ability to hide other parts of the page in order to achieve a customized look and feel.

    We are selectively hiding features such as:
    - Hub nav
    - "Composite header" which includes:
    - Site logo
    - Site title
    - Top nav
    - Follow/Share buttons
    - Search box

    We are relying on injecting override CSS with our Application Customizer Extension. This is not a reliable method as it's not supported. Certain html id values such…

  8. Enhance CreateContentType with Group property to defined the content type group

    The CreateContentType function does not support "Group" property that sets the content type group to which it belongs. The same is available for CreateSiteColumn.

  9. [MODERN PAGES] add responsive design for tables

    HTML responsive design principles should be used for all pages. All elements within modern pages should implement simple concept of HTML responsive design.
    Tables lack width lock with width & height of viewscreen, nor does allow to set fixed (or percentage, or em/px) widths per whole table, or individual column or line.
    Currently this limitation heavily impact UX on any published modern pages, hence the read does not always see the whole published content (if window size is more narrower that the page/table size).

  10. Provide a way to view an HTML file in the browser reather than downloading the file. This totally defeats the purpose

    SharePoint Online does not provide a feature for placing a html file for viewing but rather it downloads the file. This totally defeats the purpose.

  11. Site Manager Copy/Move sites

    Hi,
    I just find this: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/work-with-site-content-and-structure-30fcaad9-02b1-4347-8b03-e1ccc5a4c19f#bm4
    (Important)
    Microsoft means serieously that will replace the Site manager functions like Copy/Move sites by Copy/Move files?
    This is like replacing car by skates.
    Is there any reasonable cause? Or with Sharepoint online slow functions is now comming new era of slow and no functions?

    I would like to know this, since support of Sharepoin in our company is getting down with every new update (its getting towards XP - Vista story)

    Thank you

    Ivan

  12. Support for enterprise content types is SharePoint site designs.

    Currently, the site design schema does not support an action to add enterprise content types. It would great to not have to use the content type syndication hub. We should be able to apply a enterprise content type to one or more site collections via site designs.

  13. JSON to be able to set Layout and Background

    With site designs for modern there are a lot of options available however the ability to change Layout to 'Standard' or 'Compact' and the Background to say 'Strong' is lacking.

    Can these please be made available?

  15. find way to convert existing publishing pages to modern, having over a thousand pages makes it unreasonable to switch to modern experience.

    Content from publishing pages exist in database, should be way to leverage this to convert existing publishing pages to modern experience. Consider customers with thousands of existing publishing pages - not just oh start over with new communications site.

  16. UI support for Site Designs and Site Scripts

    All the management occurs programmatically. It would be great to manage Site Designs directly from the new SharePoint admin center. E. g.: Manage scope, Set default design, Site Designs and Site Scripts overview etc.

  18. view formatting container

    JSON View formatting looks different in a webpart compared to in the list/library.

    Can we have access to the container HTML element for the list rather than just to the individual rows? (when writing the JSON)

    When creating a grid of floating tiles, they do not align properly when the viewed as a webpart. They are displayed in a jagged stair-case. It works fine when looking at the list/library.

    I would attached an image but that doesn't seem to be in this site's feature set :(

  19. List column formatting - extend this to the Sharepoint web part

    IN SHORT: Can List Column Formatting be extended to the Sharepoint List web part?

    LONGER VERSION
    Column Formatter was released in Q4 2017, and it has done excellent things for small businesses who thrive on good business processes. Personally we use it to show "lead urgency" for incoming work, which is really simple formatting, as well as more complex rules, e.g. our deadlines traffic light system takes about 7 fields (project status plus multiple deadline fields for different stages of the project) and presents a nice colour-coded "next deadline" that gives us a visual overview of all projects' stages.

    BUT…
