  1. Why not sharepoint can be edited with dotnet using C# or VB using

    if SP pages allow to edit using C# or VB language it depends heavily on java and json why not MSFT own languages

Need to have ability to have custom groups for Webparts

          • When we are inside a folder, we should see the metadata of the folder in the right pane until we select the files/folders inside the folder.

            Please show metadata of the folder in the detail pane when user is inside the folder. They should also modify the folder metadata when inside a folder. Bad user experience. Alfresco and other collaboration tools works that way.

            • Embedding of iFrames doesn't allow customizing of zoom %. To obviate need to scroll, customizing zoom % view would be helpful.

              Existing iFrame embed add-in doesn't allow customizing of zoom %. To obviate need for scrolling horizontally or vertically, customizing zoom % for viewing of smaller web parts would be helpful. (Tried CSS links and JS scripts but they are stripped out of HTML by SP 2013.)

              • Fully client-side deployments without App permissions

                All of the scaffolding solutions you have tutorials for require the ability to package and deploy using SharePoint Apps uploader & deployer. That step is by definition not client-side because SharePoint administrators must upload it to their App system which resides on the server-side.

                What if I need to scaffold solutions locally then move them into an on-premises SharePoint 2013 site that does not permit Apps? Am I just going to have to undo all the work you have done by recodingit into the older fashion deployment for the script editor?

                • Cascading Lookup Site Columns

                  Something that I feel is still missing from SharePoint to this day is to create a Lookup Site Column that gives a different set of options depending on another Lookup Site Column. To give the set of steps on how this would work:

                  1. User clicks on a lookup field for example called "Country" and selects "United States".
                  2. A field for example called "City" now gives a set of Cities within the United States, whereas if the user selects "Germany" for example it would select all cities in Germany.
                  3. The user selects a City for example "Chicago" and…

                  • Remove the 5000 View Threshold for REST API or CSOM

                    There is no need to limit View Threshold when querying against REST or CSOM. Remove the Threshold in order to pull large data.

                      • Intercept page events, such as publish and save

                        When a page event occurs. Allow the webpart to get this action and dismiss it, e.g. ‘No you can’t publish this page until this property is equal to x’

                          • 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…

                                      • Site Design and Site Script - increase cumulative actions to atlest 50 or

                                        show some other way to handle bundle of actions to run in the background instead of showing the execution of actions in the script.
                                        User like to wait for the system to perform background tasks but not the limitations to the features .
