  1. 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…

  3. 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’

  8. Make internal SP links display the same icon as its target

    In SharePoint, .url items currently display a generic web page icon no matter what the link leads to. It would be great if it could work similarly to shortcuts in WIndows, where it is apparent which file type it points at.

  10. 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?

  11. develop different way to validate a new sharepoint webhook subscription for notifier URLS that cannot support responses

    some packaged platforms like Slack have incoming webhook capability and will give you notifier URLs. But these urls cannot respond back to a validation message and the required webhook subscription in SharePoint can never be created.

  12. 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…

  13. 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)

  18. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. 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..
