  2. _vti_bin/ directory susceptible for html content injection attack with op parameter

    Sharepoint should perform input validation on op parameter in URL for services under _vti_bin/ directory. Currently, it allows client input to be printed directly in the response

  4. 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…

  6. OfficeJs

    OfficeJs Addin Forward current message: Header and Body as an attachment.

    Can you please create an API endpoint that will allow a developer to forward the current message Header and Body as an attachment to an address. At the current Moment I believe when we try to forward a message as an attachment we have a message body with no header.

  7. 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?

  8. Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items

    Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items. Works fine if under 5k items in the source list. This is contrary to the documentation on using rest - either update the documentation or fix this issue.

  9. Integrating Azure AD user profiles to SharePoint Online through People Search Results page

    There is a need for a mechanism to integrate Azure AD user profiles directly to SharePoint pages. Currently, the sync happens through Exchange Online. It takes around 72 hours for the changes to reflect in SharePoint. If there is a method to display the user profile details directly in SharePoint through the People Search Results page, it can eliminate the delay in displaying the changes through the sync process. This can be helpful while designing Employee Directory or Staff Directory for the organization.

  10. Add more SPO Webparts that follow common design principles

    Currently the WebPart for "Sites" in SPO Modern is very limited in what you can do. Yes it shows the sites, but then you cannot control the colors of the part, whether there is a default image (or one you can add) or even ad your own titles (making it kind of like a link).

    Similarly using the Highlighted content WebPart allows you to see cards with images where you can filter to only those sites/pages you want BUT - you can't control the subtext nor remove the "author" . - Basically - a new Card WebPart should be created…

  11. 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

  12. IDs are conflicting between multiple SharePoint calendars when download them in local outlook

    In SharePoint, you can add multiple calendars, but each calendar use auto-increment ID field, which can conflict with other calendars EventID when you download these events as .ics in your local outlook.
    Because outlook use .ics eventid to create a new event in your calendar. Now when you download events from the SharePoint calendars, they might have same IDs and outlook either wouldn't add same IDs event or in some case it will remove the exiting event with the same ID.

    I went through with Microsoft support and they agreed it is a restriction on SharePoint calendar object that we…

  13. Site updates on close of Site set-up status panel (which appears during new site creation using custom site design)

    When creating a new site using a custom site design(with action to add webpart to landing page etc), a panel with close option(at top right corner of the panel) will open up on the right showing the set-up status for the new site. If the user click on close of the panel during the site updation process or after the site updation process completion the site does NOT show custom site design updates.

    Manual refresh of the page to see the updated site should be avoided.

  14. REST oData $filter should be able to work with managed metadata

    This is not supported using the $filter option. The only way to filter using REST is to pass a CAML query but not very convenient.

  15. CSOM: DocumentSharingManager.UpdateDocumentSharingInfo () API fails if filename contains % or # in it

    We are simply updating sharing of document which resides in SharePoint online using CSOM API.

    version: Microsoft.SharePointOnline.CSOM.16.1.7813.1200

    DocumentSharingManager.UpdateDocumentSharingInfo () API fails if filename contains % or # in it . No error though but return '0' UserSharingResult and sharing is not getting applied.

    Note: If filaname does not have % or # then API works without issue.

    Is new UpdateDocumentSharingInfo () API available to accept ResourcePath instead of string for url. Please help me out.

    I also tried other API ShareObject() but unfortunately this also did not work if file path (including filename) has "%" or "#" (reference: https://github.com/SharePoint/PnP/tree/master/Samples/Core.ExternalSharing)

  19. Add logic to check if Automatic / Manual Site Storage limits is set for Tenant in CSOM

    At the moment there is no possibility to check if the tenant quota management is set to automatic or manual (Site storage limits) in CSOM.

    Please add an new property to Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.TenantAdministration.Tenant to get and set the quota mode.

    Example:

    Tenant.StorageQuotaMode = StorageQuotaMode.Automatic
    Tenant.StorageQuotaMode = StorageQuotaMode.Manual

  20. view formatting support click to call using href=tel:

    Expand the SharePoint View formatting schema to support click to call URLs. This would allow a url such as <a href='tel:555-555-1212'>555-555-1212</a> to be created using SharePoint's json view formatting. Today 'tel:' protocol is not supported. The following is an example of the requested syntax to create a click to call url from data in a "Phone" column.

    {
    "elmType": "a",
    "txtContent": "[$Phone]",
    "attributes": {
    "target": "_blank",
    "href": "='tel:' + [$Phone]"
    }
    }
