  2. Allow web part property updates when not in page edit mode

    Currently it seems that web part properties can only be updated when in page edit mode but it would be really useful if we could update properties when in read mode as well.

    The idea is that we can use web part properties as a place to store cached data which might be expensive in processing terms to extract from a content source but which might not need to be extracted on every page load. So the data and an associated timestamp could both be updated but only when needed. This process works just fine but only when in page…

  4. Make triggering a Power Automation flow from site script free again

    Recent licensing changes for Power Automate has made the Request - When a HTTP Request is received trigger a Premium action. This essentially removes the ability to call a Power Automate Flow from a Site Script since every user making the call would now require premium licensing.

    Whats worse, is any Flow that was previously configured to use this trigger from a site script can no longer be updated and saved. You are given an error message about inaccurate licensing and prevented from saving. So anyone who had been using it for Site design and site script automation can no…

  5. Custom error message for Sharepoint Add in when the app is down and 502 (bad gateway) error is returned.

    There will be instances when our app goes down. In such cases, when the end user tries to access a Sharepoint website where the add-in is added as a web-part, they see a 502 error. Instead, would it be possible to add a custom error message that can be configurable through the manifest file?

  7. Properties update bug

    Hey,

    We had problem with update of a Sharepoint item's property ( Single line of text).
    The max length of this property is 255 chars.
    We updated properties with a string that contain 250 char ( most of it is spaces).
    The API didnt block this update of the property, but afterwards this file didn't open on local application.

    That was a big bug for us because it locked more than 100,00o file in our system.

    Regards,
    Tal.

  8. Option to remove social media functionality from Sharepoint

    This is only really useful if everybody in the company uses it. I'd rather Sharepoint developers spent their time on something useful, like a functional search engine.

    For example, I look at my Sharepoint profile probably once a year. If someone posts something I need to see there, I'm not going to see it for months.

    This overlaps with social media functionality on Teams and numerous other products. Remove it from Sharepoint. No one in their right mind is going to seriously use it.

  9. CDN Edge Server behaviour when passing through API

    CDN Edge Server behaviour when passing through API


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint サイト内のニュース Web パーツ内に画像ファイルを設置している。
    CDN エッジ サーバーを設定した際、開発者ツールから確認しても API を通しているために 画像ファイルに CDN が適用されていない。
    内部的に適用されているかを明文化するとともに、適用対象外であれば、対象となるよう変更を希望。​
    We have image files saved in the News Web Parts on our SharePoint site.
    When setting up the CDN Edge Server, the image file is not applied to the CDN because it is passed through the API even when checked from the developer tools.
    We would like to clarify whether it is applied internally and hope that it will be changed if it is not applicable currently.

  11. Surface ListViewCommandSet commands on the preview pane for documents

    In Modern Document Libraries we have the Preview option in the ECB that opens the document in the Browser. While Previewing the document it seems we have SOME of the option that are present in the ECB for the item in the list view (Share, copy link, download,Copy To, and Version History) displayed at the top of the page.

    It would be great if we could have our own commands surfaced at the top of this preview page as well.

  19. SharePoint modern page template error when accessing model details panel

    Hi, I just want to submit a bug with the modern page template.
    When creating a site in another language than English (Example french), the site pages templates folder will be named "Modèles" in french. When you edit a page template and access the details panel to display the properties, it will throw an error.

    My solution was not rename the "Modèles" folder by "Templates" and everything is fine now.

    I've reproduce the issue on 2 tenants.

  20. Improve the field lookup in rest calls.

    When doing a lookup to another list item, Fields like Choice, lookup to lists from another site, users, and many other are not available and developers are forced to make several calls to get the information that could be received in one.

    Also lookedUp fields are not refreshed when making a second call if the item has changed sending incorrect information the the user.
