  1. An API for fetching the list to which a command extension is attached

    Currently when the extension(command set) is used for a list/library, and when the same library view is shown in modern page, the list title returned in a SPFx command set extension refers to the SitePages library when the list is surfaced through a list web part on a site page.

    The command set extension is reading the title from this.context.pageContext.list.title.
    Because the page in context comes from the site pages library, this chain will refer to the site pages library.

    can we get an API for fetching the list to which a command extension is attached

  3. Please stop removing fonts (font sizes) from modern pages

    It ssems suddenly MS has removed the 17pt fontsize from Modern Pages, resulting in all our pages that used this font to revert to the next higher: font 18pt, which is way too big. Also in all sites the theme was changed from 'Blue' to 'Teal'? This resulted in the fact we had to redo dozens of pages in dozen of sites. Waste of valuable time.

    Please stop from removing font sizes or changing themes without pior notice.

  4. unresolved case related to DLP policy in Sharepoint

    • Case #: 20357756
    • Created on: Saturday, June 6, 2020 4:21 PM
    • Title: DLP policy in sp
    • Description: We have been testing DLP Over-ride function in Sharepoint and found a bug- If a policy is once overridden for a file by person X (doesn’t matter the owner or not), any other person Y can choose the file (not opening the file) and share it directly without having to over-ride except in one case i.e if Y opens the doc, click at “More Options” at the Policy tip displayed and ignores it(doesn’t actually Over-ride it). Could you please…

  5. Modernize React Framework and Scaffolding

    I appreciate what is being provided, allowing development on the front end is great. However it would be nice if the toolset was able to align more closely with modern React development. This request is for 1. at least a fork of the framework provides a more functional API using current React constructs: the choice of modern ECMAScript instead of TypeScript, hooks instead of classes, composition instead of inheritance. 2. And a starter app scaffolded that utilizes this new API to the framework.

  7. .NET Core + CSOM add option to change the "modified by" user name

    The new support for .NET Core with CSOM is based on an admin user authentication with access token. We can't assign a user to the be the item "modified by" property. It automatically takes the admin to be the "modified by".
    This is important since the end user was the one who performed the action and not the app admin.

  8. Metadata explaination

    Hello,

    Our company is currently moving our files to SharePoint and will be adapting to Metadata file sharing.
    We have a lot of different kind of Metadata, documents and employees and want to be very clear what should be filled in as Metadata. Some of our Metadata need some more explanation of what to be filled in. Is that possible to add? For example a text that appears when you click on a small question mark. We also want to be able to do this with the different alternatives if that is possible.

    What do you think, is that possible?

  9. Allow to use or at least find published to Marketplace SPFx solutions on SP2019

    Currently it's not possible to find published to Marketplace SPFx solution on SP2019.

    It would be good to have possibility to achieve SP2019 users with SPFx solutions that currently published to Marketplace. Such solutions could have description or even links to packages that could be used for SP2019.

    Or if it possible - publish process to Marketplace could be extended with additional package that could be used for SP2019

    Another idea is to extend SPFx schema additional property - Url to SP2019 package (or to custom page where additional description could be posted for SP2019 users that want to install…

  10. When we have more than 5000 items in a SharePoint Online list which we need to display in a custom form, we can only display 5000 items def

    When we have more than 5000 items in a SharePoint Online list which we need to display in a custom form, we can only display 5000 items in the form, and to display more than 5000 items we need to write a recursive ajax function using REST API.
    So that it will concatenate the items in each recursion and then can be able to display more than 5000+ items, but each iteration/recursion pulls only 99 items out of 5000+ items at a time.

    I have to recursively/iterate the piece of code 50 times to pull 5000 [i.e. 5000/99] items to…

  11. Version Metadata Not Working in Labels

    Hi All,

    I have a customer who is about to walk away from SharePoint online as we can’t get the metadata of the version of the document into the footer. They’re going to go to livelink or docuware.

    What’s the problem?

    This may sound small but industry standard document management requires that footers of documents can contain metadata, most importantly the version of the document so when a user prints the document the document can have the correct controls embedded right the way through the document. It’s called Document Control.

    SharePoint online allows us to create content types and, through…

  13. Automated Flow for Collect Feedback to replace the Collect Feedback SharePoint 2010/2013 Workflow for Office documents..

    We need an automated Flow for Collect Feedback to replace the Collect Feedback SharePoint 2010/2013 Workflow. I need to route Office documents--specifically, Microsoft Word, or Visio Drawings, Powerpoints, or spreadsheets, to stakeholders (Engineers) for their feedback. Specifically, these are procedure documents that require redlines (Tracked Changes) and the ability for the reviewer to edit/add comments. Word already does that, yes, but I need to be able to run a SharePoint Workflow that is NOT an Approval workflow. It's to be used for collecting redline feedback, reviews, tracked changes, and routing to several users. Not including that Collect Feedback Workflow in…

  16. Add option to set default layout on Library webpart

    There is no way to set the default layout of the Library webpart to compact list or tiles unless you create a view first and use that. It would be handy to have the option in the default webpart settings to choose either List, Compact List or Tiles layout by default.

  17. Add web part size information to web part context

    Expanding on the WebPartFormFactor concept, it would be great to be able to natively get information about the size of the current web part zone hosting the web part. This would allow us to more easily offer optimised UX based on how the web part is being displayed (eg: if the web part is in a 1/3 or 1/2 width zone, show fewer items per row than if it's full-width).

    This can currently be achieved with native JS measuring element widths and resize handlers, but it'd be much cleaner and more reliable to have native integration, especially as more layout…

  19. Fix the problem with multiple line text field entries not appearing as they are written in a native form. This information should export.

    enable the multiple text line information to export as is into Excel and interface to it's original entered values, not the code for interoperability.
