  1. make SetComplianceTagWithExplicitMetasUpdate an external method that does not error out upon usage

    this method exists but it is poorly documented and some have claimed its for internal use only...also document the ComplianceFlag paramater and what the internal ENUMs are

  2. Need SharePointOnlineCredentials to work in Dot Net Core

    I really need the SharePointOnlineCredentials class to work in Dot Net Core under CSOM. It is so simple to use, and your work around(s) are complicated and not possible for me. I work for a large company with a large online SharePoint site. The corporation refuses to give out application codes to work around my security, but I can create a user and password to login to the SharePoint site and update files. Why can I not automate this in Dot Net Core? The work around(s) for this one feature are crazy. Days of coding to run into brick walls…

  3. Properties Window in MS Word

    when saving a word document into Sharepoint a properties window appears, however the window to select the data is very small and difficult to use as you can only see two Terms of References at a time. Can this box be made bigger?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  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. Support for specific column type for Field Customizers

    Right now Field Customizers only work for specific fields (based on internal name) or new defined field. Is there any provision to make the field customizer run for specific field type say User and Group across all the lists. Please suggest.

  9. 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…

  10. know "who viewed this document" in CSOM

    In CSOM there is no way to know "who viewed this file". In the sharepoint UI (web browser) there is a way (but it's not working fine with some file types like .jpg). I understand this information is taken from the analytics but this level of details is not available through CSOM. It would be great if you can provide this informnation in CSOM and if file types like jpg and other related excluded types also provide this information.

  12. Allow appOnly Apps to update UserProfiles and TaxonomyStore

    As mentioned here

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/add-in-permissions-in-sharepoint

    and here

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/app-only-elevated-privileges-sharepoint-add-in

    it ist stated, that using AppOnly Permissions is restricted for UserProfile and TaxonomyStore (whereas Taxonomystore is unclear).

    However, as now CSOM supports .Net core, but only with AddIn-Model authentication, we have no possibility to use that to update UserProfiles or TaxonomyStore in an automated way in the backend using .Net Core.

    At least if that documention is still correct.

    Currently we have to use a service user and .Net Framework CSOM to do that tasks. But this on the other way prevents us to use new technologies for example in Azure, which is…

  13. Site Design script triggerFlow verb alternative awaiting the result and add custom texts in the process of applying a custom site design

    The end user experience might come not so ideal in case of applying a custom site design e.g seeing waiting for progress state in case of simple action e.g. adding to a hub site with 10sec to 3min and then as a last action triggering flow which immediately results. It might causes a meaning the whole operation is finished and further confusions like "Is it/ or is it not finished yet?" Could it be so that:
    1) the platform offers e.g. runFlow with a timeout parameter (in future possibly also a nice way showing to end user actual time to…
