  1. [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).

    • Not intuitive AT ALL. WHy so many steps to publish!?!!!

      Scrap the whole program and think through how to set up the functionality of Sharepoint. All I'm trying to do us publish my site and it is unnecessarily complicated. Nothing is intuitive, would take a month to tell you everything. Scrap all the code and rebuild the entire program from scratch...so it makes sense. Remove all of the "Overthinkers" from program engineering staff (have them work on something else). To many redundant, over thought out processes that make simple processes too complicated. I feel like I am forced to look through 10 drawers of beautifully detailed knives and I desperately…

            • Allow page-level application extensions

              Currently, application extensions can work with known locations, and with toolbars for lists, but there is no (supported) way to create extensions that would allow you to add toolbar buttons to pages.

              If we want to add a button that is visible when a user is editing a modern page so that they can do stuff within the page, there isn't a (supported) way to do that.

              For example, I want to add a button for my content editors that verifies their content for WCAG compliance, or make sure the content adheres to corporate guidelines before they save the page.

              • Enable configuring sp-page-context settings on the workbench

                when developing spfx webparts that will serve as listforms (for example added to edit form.aspx), we can use sp-page-context splits and splits item to determine the list and item we are working on.

                it would be nice if the workbench could let us configure these parameters so that when developing, we could mimic the real environment.

                  • Make CSOM license Linux friendly

                    CSOM has restrictions on distribution for Windows platform only. Make the CSOM license linux friendly because tons of people want to use CSOM platform independently to avoid having to use the REST API.

                        • Linked to item lookup column (from a different list) pops up dialog box - but JSON button/icon/href display doesn't open dialog box

                          I created a column that is a linked to item lookup field to a different list and pops up a dialog box to that item when clicked. I only get @currentField.lookupId or @currentField.lookupValue for the JSON formatting - and would like to have the "@currentField.lookupUrl" so that I can display a button or different link text - yet have it act like the "linked to item" link which inherits whether or not it opens in a dialog box from the "advanced settings" or the list.

                            • 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?

                              • Add a tabbed web part section (or let me build one)

                                I would like to add a few lists and libraries to a "modern" page. Instead of laying them out in one column or multiple columns, I'd like to have a bar of tabs (or what Fabric calls a "pivot") across the top of the web part section that allows users to change between content views.

                                This is a very common UI pattern, and I'd ideally like a web part section like this provided by SharePoint. If that's not possible, it would be helpful if SPFx supported building not just custom web parts, but custom web part sections that could define…

                                    • Please create a Vue.js SPFx Template

                                      Please add in a template for Vue.js to be used for SPFx as the current options are Knockout and React when creating a new web part. Attempting to configure all of the files for Vue.js is cumbersome and frustrating as there are multiple referenced projects that seem to differ from one another and none work for me.

                                      • Update documentation to show that you use createSPList verb to update an existing list

                                        Please update the documentation from "Use the createSPList verb to create a new SharePoint list."
                                        to something like
                                        "Use the createSPList verb to create a new SharePoint list or update an existing list"

                                        as it is not clear from the documentation at the minute..

                                        • Support for wildcards at beginning of SQL queries

                                          According to Microsoft documentation, "Prefix matching is also supported with phrases specified in property values, but you must use the wildcard operator (*) in the query, and it is supported only at the end of the phrase." This is extrememly limiting. Why can't the wild card be anywhere in the query? This functionality would be great.
