  2. I want to develop SP2016 web parts in visual studio on Windows 10 PC and deploy onto SharePoint Server like I did in SP 2010. How?

    Why is it so hard to find information? I want to develop SP2016 web parts in visual studio on Windows 10 and deploy into SharePoint Server Farm. I was able to do this in SP 2010. How to and where are the instructions? This shouldn't be that hard? Why do I need a 2008 server to develop/build SP 2013 or SP 2016 web parts? Makes no sense?

  3. I am no one here, but my idea is bit of new ms-batch that is used from inside of normal audio mp3 as data batch that can do multitask

    use any normal mp3 audio data box where normal ms-batch is then stored inside, and rename mp3 format to batch that will then be read back by ms-apps.
    just some new bit of MS users idea.

  4. More Accessible On/Off

    SharePoint seems to be backwards in Accessibility. The framework seems to be accessibility last, rather than accessibility first. I am working on making our content more accessible, and find it somewhat confusing that there is even a mode to switch to rather than simply enabling by default. Is there a way for us to turn on accessibility by default in the SharePoint Online administrator settings?

  9. Improved Modern way to implement and use tagging to replace folders

    As I understand it, we are supposed to be using tags to organize content in a document library and eventually abandon folders.

    In the modern UI, tagging is harder to use, defining and assigning tags are also difficult to understand and is less friendly to use in the UI. For example, it is easier to choose from a multi-select choice list than it is to select tags.

    Microsoft needs to re-implement the file tagging feature to be more user friendly.

  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.

  11. Allow to display classic SharePoint-hosted add-in inside MS Flow tab

    Many customers want to display SharePoint-hosted add-ins (located in the App Web) inside MS Teams tab, but it's not possible. It's very weird when you can attach any website like Google, but you cannot attach another product from Microsoft Office 365 ecosystem...

  12. 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?

  13. SPFx Teams Personal App, hide app header that contains redundant tab

    If developing complex solutions as SPFx Teams Personal Apps, the top header that contains a tab with the name of the app is useless and uses screen real estate without bringing any functionality.
    Further more, if you have custom navigation in your app, it becomes cumbersome.
    I would like the option to hide it and have my personal app, with my custom navigation, occupy the whole available space.

  14. There should be a flow trigger which can run on any changes in subfolders as well.

    There is a need to create a trigger that can run once any changes are performed in any of the subfolders. Without this user need to create multiple scripts which are very time consuming and difficult to maintain.

  15. 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…

  16. OOTB SPFX WebParts combination with custom ones documentation

    Provide documentation of how we can use OOTB SPFX webparts together with custom ones, in particular connections between webparts.
    e. g. OOTB listview webpart can be a datasourse for OOTB list webpart, but if I need to develop custom list web part I don't have any info on which events and which info I'll receive for it. Of course in this case obviously only on 1 item selection and properties of the item or just id of the list and item... But I think documentation will be helpful, espesially because previous request of open sourcing OOTB webparts was declined.

  17. workflow

    It was mentioned in
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/sharepoint-2010-workflow-retirement-1ca3fff8-9985-410a-85aa-8120f626965f?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US that starting August 1st, 2020, SharePoint 2010 workflows will be turned off for any newly created tenants, workflows will be removed from existing tenants as well.
    It is not clear if this addresses SharePoint add-ins with workflows developed in visual studio.
    also what is the migration plan from these kind of workflows so that we have a packaged solution on appsource?

  19. Please provide templates with the same features as in SPD in Power Automate

    If you are forcing users to convert to PA, then there must be equivalent capabilities as in SPD. Please provide equivalent templates of "Approval", "Collect Feedback", and "Collect Signatures". Allow for workflow history logging. Provide capability for sequential appprovers. It is impossible for me to convert all my workflows to Power Automate when all of the capabilities/actions in SPD 2010 workflows are not available in PA.
