  1. 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.

  2. Streamline new webpart generation by asking fewer questions

    When generating a new webpart, I'm asked for solution name (which as far as I can tell is only used to create folder if I don't use the existing current folder). Instead, I'd like to be asked first which folder I'd use and if I elect to use the current folder, no prompt for solution name needs to be shown. Same goes for component type when I'm targeting SP16 as that's the only option. WebPart Description can be skipped entirely and it is editable afterwards anyways. That's 3 questions instead of 6.

    While this is partially possible by using parameters,…

  3. IListViewCommandSetExecuteEventParameters spfx current list

    The IListViewCommandSetExecuteEventParameters that a custom ListViewCommandSet recievs onExecute only contains the selectedRows. If several webparts are placed on the page. There is no way to tell which list or library the user is selecting items from.

    I would like the IListViewCommandSetExecuteEventParameters to include the ListId.

  4. 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’

  5. DITA authoring using SharePoint and Word Master/Sub Documents

    DITA authoring is used primarily for documentation, when multiple authors are working on different components, often with an approval workflow. It is very useful for producing agendas and minutes for government or board meetings, technical documentation of various sorts.
    DITA environments have two key parts: a library of document "components", and a container for a "map" that collects and orders those components into a publishable document. The final product is output to various formats, typically PDF, e-Book or html.
    There are already DITA authoring tools that use MS Word as the base authoring platform (Quark, DITA Exchange), because most authors…

  8. Add-ins Read Perms for Multiple Lists

    When I create an Add-in, I can request Read permission for a single SharePoint List in the AppManifest.xml file. Later, when the user installs my Add-in, SharePoint asks her/him for the name of exactly one list to grant my Add-in read access.

    I want my Add-in to have the ability to read from multiple lists from unrelated site collections, but I don't want to request read access for the entire tenant.

    Please modify SharePoint Add-in security so the user has the option grant an Add-in access to multiple lists for which she/he has access across the tenant.

    For example:
    If…

  14. Expose PopWindowPosition from sp-property-pane

    When using the PropertyPaneLink method, the popupWindowsProps property contains a window position property. This property has an associated enum in the type definition, however that enumeration is not public. Also, intellisense in VS Code does not show the label.

  16. RegistrationType of Command Set Extension

    Hello,

    How to make the Command Set extension to work for all types of Lists? What value need to be given for RegistrationType in elements.xml? We don't want the entries to be added for each and every listtype. Just RegistrationType=List should be sufficient for all list types. Please suggest.
    Thanks!

  17. 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

  18. Requires a support of "ActivateFeatureOnDefault=False" in SPFX.

  19. Using add-in only / app-only permissions with search queries in SharePoint 2016 (On Prem).

    Currently we're not able to leverage the SharePoint Search API using the app only permissions within SharePoint 2016 (On-Prem). It should work the same way as it does in SharePoint Online (supports search queries).
