  1. Differential queries for Users and Groups

    Requesting that the Sharepoint REST API will make available a resource to perform differential queries for Users and Groups.

    A differential query is an API request that returns all changes made to specified entities during the time between two consecutive requests.

    This is useful in scenarios where we aim to sync Sharepoint's users and groups collections to an external repository.

    For example, such a feature already exists in Office 365's Graph API. See here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/ad/graph/howto/azure-ad-graph-api-differential-query

    • Improved administration for Alerts of Announcements and Discussions

      Currently when creating alerts for Announcements and Discussions, Admins are limited in how these can be managed, once an alert has been created, if you need to remove the alert you may have to go through every user that has the alert one at a time to be able to delete the alert, there should be a feature in Powershell that allows admins to manage user alerts so that they can be updated or deleted globally.

      • SPFx Multiple deployment profiles

        The current state of the framework does not provide different web parts to have different deployment profiles - one for prod, one for dev, and one for staging / test.

        Currently, in order to move application from dev to test, one needs to create a build and upload it to the app catalog. Usually, developers do not have access to the app catalog and this is managed by architect or administrator.

        Having different spapp packages deployed and prepared by the solution architect will ease the process of development.

        • Use Vue.js instead of standard rendering

          It would be great to be able to (easily) use something like Vue.js instead of hacking around with XSL or rearranging forms with jquery on PreRender() etc. This would be great for Views too.

          Something like Vue.js would also be relatively comprehensible for power business users, not just developers. It could be abstracted too, to make it even easier.

          • WithDraw custom action/wokflow is needed

            SharePoint lacks label/watermark functionality to change status to Withdrawn on a previously approved and locked document without changing version. Work around with C# code in a Custom Action and in Event Receivers.

            • ItemModertorStatusChanged event receiver

              ItemUpdated event receiver is a very rough async process that blocks SharePoint functionality heavily. It can't be empty since workflows communicate with SharePoint using it. My Suggestion is to introduce a ItemModertorStatusChanged event receiver. To obtain backwards comptibility, it should be a tick box when creating a workflow in SharePoint Designer to use ItemUpdated or ItemModertorStatusChanged event receiver.

              • Allow 'eq null' REST filtering on Rich Text columns

                When I try to apply a REST filter on a Rich Text column (named 'Comment' for example) in this way
                $filter=Comment eq null

                I get an error:
                The field 'Comment' of type 'Note' cannot be used in the query filter expression

                I understand that most filter expressions on RTF would drain performance, but checking RTF columns for null (or not null) should be quick.

                Could you please consider allowing 'eq null' REST filtering on Rich Text columns?

                • SharePoint list linked with Access Displays #Error

                  When a SharePoint list is linked to an Access database (2010, 2013, 2016 or 365), and that calculation results to Null, not the null value is displayed but an #Error is the value in the field. This bugs my application. Please fix.

                  • Anyone else is affected by this SP73009 outage - 'Users may be unable to activate or use SharePoint Online Sandbox Solutions'?

                    Started a new site collection and uploaded my solution (which has been working fine in other site collections on the same tenant). And I get an error saying solution cannot be activated. Then I notice this SP73009 'Users may be unable to activate or use SharePoint Online Sandbox Solutions' Service degradation that's been around for 5 days!!! (since July 22) - with no progress or any indication for resolution...and Microsoft is also saying that they're not aware of customer impact! I spent 45 minutes on the phone with Microsoft and the rep sends me here...

                    • Add new "site administrator" permission role to SharePoint

                      The "Site Collection Administrator" role has full control over all sites in a site collection even though they are not listed as a user on a site.

                      A "Full Control" user has full control of a site within the site collection. Please consider creating a "site administrator" role that gives a user Full Control of a site and all subsites.

                      Currently, a full control user of a site can create subsites and assign permissions, but if they give "full control" permissions to another user, they may be removed themselves and no longer have access to the site (or even know…

                        • Do not apply Site scoped UserCustomActions on appwebs

                          Site scoped usercustomactions are currently applied also on the appwebs When you try to load files in the Custom action using the server relative URL the file cannot be loaded because of the different (app) domain. This will result in a http 500 error message (instead of http 404). We have seen cases where standard SharePoint components (peoplepicker, etc.) stop functioning because of these errors.

                          Custom Actions should only be applied on the sitecollection and "normal" subwebs.

                                I created the SharePoint list "Global Address List" with standard columns and added the same list in the Outlook app (for all clients) as an add'tl contact folder. So far, so good.
                                Now, when I add the new column "class" (which is a "Choose" field) in this list, how can I also see this field in my client Outlook application ?
                                My earlier service request was processed by Nikolay Nikolov, Microsoft Office 365 Frontline Support Engineer, Email: v-2ninik@microsoft.com, who advised to put in this idea for further development as this functionality is not available currently ...

                                • Having calendar invites to Site Mailbox show up on site calendar

                                  Would like to have the ability to send a calendar invite or meeting request from Outlook (exchange) calendar to Site mailbox and have it show up in the Sharepoint site's calendar. Right now, Sharepoint will not add the event to calendar created in SharePoint online as the SharePoint calendar is not associated with site mailbox in anyway.

                                  Also exchange calendar cannot be overlayed with SharePoint calendar as this feature is not available in SharePoint Online.

                                  • Online editing capabilities for Access documents in Sharepoint

                                    Our team would really benefit from having online editing capabilities for Access documents available to all users of Sharepoint regardless of the user's ownership of desktop Microsoft products.

                                    • Saving outlook attachments directly to Sharepoint

                                      With the volume of attachments that are received via email, and ensuring that the documents within those attachments are saved appropriately for probity, governance, access reasons, please provide the facility to be able to save directly into Sharepoint from outlook.

                                      The 'old' and 'traditional' method of saving directly into windows explorer 'server' file locations is perfect and needs to be replicated in O365.

                                      Regards

                                        • End users have access to change sharing permissions on files and folders within SP libraries

                                          Allow end users that only have contribute rights to SP libraries to change permissions to files and folders that they have shared with external users. Not having to request permissions from a SP admin to approve first.
