  1. Add ability to reorder playlists within a subcategory in M365 Learning Pathways \ Custom Learning

    Add ability to reorder playlists within a subcategory in M365 Learning Pathways \ Custom Learning. Currently the last added playlist shows up at the top of the subcategory page. This requires us to add custom playlists to a subcategory in reverse order of how we'd like it displayed and means we have to recreate the subcategory if we want to add a new playlist in a specific place at a later time.

  2. Ability to deploy MS Flow Definition through .sppkg, similiar to how we can provision list and libraries.

    The deployment of SPFx components along with associated list and attached flow can be done with-in a single package so that minimum exclusive configuration is required for any developed solution.

  3. onDelete Method for SPFx web part

    Provide an onDelete() method that occurs when a web part is deleted from a page. This will allow for the web part to remove any files related to the instance being deleted.

    Thanks for your feedback! We like your suggestion and it’s being added to our backlog. We don’t have yet specific schedule for this, but item has been added to upcoming plans for the SPFx and since request does make sense and has been requested from other sources as well, this will be most likely implemented.

  4. Access to re-use modern field render controls

    Modern lists/libraries have controls to render all fields in a modern view - specifically the hard ones like people picker and taxonomy picker.

    Exposing these as re-usable modules in a SPFx web part via for example react would be very useful. I'd be happy just having the field renderer, and I can deal with labels etc myself.

  5. Need more Number Formatting options for SharePoint List columns

    For columns set as Number in SharePoint Lists, please add the same number formats as found in Excel (General, Integer, Currency, etc.). Currently I have ID numbers showing with commas, and it's annoying. The only workaround seems to create ANOTHER column with a calculated field. But this has been complained about on various forums across the internet. Please add this. :)

  6. Support RegistrationType "ContentType" in Command Set Extensions

    This suggestion stems from a discussion held in the SP Dev Docs at https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/871. Documentation has indicated support of setting the RegistrationType to "ContentType" in a Command Set Extension. However, this setting is not actually supported (as mentioned in the closing comment on the issue). We feel this setting is quite important and should be supported by Command Set Extensions. Without this setting, your only option is to target a List Template (RegistrationType="List"). This is very problematic when you are attempting to target the Command Set Extension to a specific list or even multiple lists with specific content types.…

  7. Give us the ability to call an api from a site script and not just a flow using the triggerFlow action

    Currently we can trigger a flow from a site script using the triggerFlow action as described here.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/site-design-trigger-flow-tutorial

    However it would be nice to extend this to allow us to trigger a webhook or another endpoint (eg azure function).

  8. Provide the AddToCurrentScopeOnly in the RoleAssignment class for JSOM and CSOM

    The SharePoint "fine grain permissions" best practices document recommends using this method as a way to help prevent performance penalties when unique permissions are applied. However, we need this capability in JSOM and CSOM since AddToCurrentScopeOnly is currently only available for use on-premises using the server-side object model.

  10. Automate Daily News and Events Digest

    In an education environment we need to have an automated daily news and events digest.

    Would like to have included links to all News posts published in the last 3 days, along with an Events list of all calendar events in the upcoming 3-7 days.

    Students and Staff SHOULD NOT be able to unsubscribe.

  12. Extensions: Command Set asynchronous checking for visibility

    It would be great to be able to check if a command needs to be visible or not asynchronously, enabling the possibility to use Rest API checks and query user authorizations, list item properties, etc

  13. Users with SharePoint Admin roles should be able to add (and remove) Site Collection App Catalogs

    A user that has been granted the role SharePoint Admin should have administrative rights over the site collections. This should include being able to add (and remove) site collection app catalogs. This should be particularly true when that user is also the site collection administrator.

    The error message says "Must have Manage Web Site permissions or be a tenant admin in order to add or remove sites from the site collection app catalog allow list"

    Site Collection administrators have manage web permissions, minimally, yet are unable to do so. This doesn't make sense. This was reported as a bug but…

  14. In Place Records Management: Provide a property that would expose manual record declaration availability in CSOM / REST

    1) Hopefully the feature InPlaceRecords (da2e115b-07e4-49d9-bb2c-35e93bb9fca9) shows up in the list of web features when it is activated.

    2) Expose a property that would specify the setting selected by the user in the Library Record Declaration Settings.
    a. Manual Record Declaration Availability
    b. Automatic Declaration

    3) Or - It would be great to have another property called "CanDeclareAsRecord" on this class:

    public class Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.RecordsRepository.Records
    Currently, it only provides a check if item is already an existing record. However, there is no method that says if a currently undeclared item can be declared.

  15. SPFx: ESLint instead of TSLint

    TSLint is deprecated nowadays as ESLint supports TypeScript. However, we cannot replace TSLint with ESLint in SPFx projects because TSLint task is a part of the build process internally. It would be nice to use ESLint by default.

    A couple of GitHub links about the topic:
    - https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/4972
    - https://github.com/microsoft/rushstack/pull/1592

    A couple of interesting historical facts:
    “In fact, it all started a long time ago: the last release of the tslint kernel was already in 2016. And this is the moment when it is time to start saying “last,” if someone still says “last,” because that release was really the…

  16. Pro-grammatically update Author's name on the image banner of SharePoint page

    Dear Microsoft Team,

    The author name located on top left corner of UI SharePoint page is linked with "authorbyline" property field.

    However after updating this field via PowerShell script and in .NET code CSOM PnP, the change of author name does not sync to the SharePoint page.

    It would be nice pragramatically updating the author name is supported in the next release.

    This request would bring value to the business when migrating bulk pages from a third party intranet site to SharePoint Online so that instead of manually updating each SharePoint migrated page with the author name and publish it,…

  20. Azure Event Grid integration for all Office 365 platforms (SharePoint, Outlook, Dynamics 365 etc)

    All Office 365 platforms, starting with SharePoint should be integrated with & emit Azure Event Grid events! Imagine a user creates or views a file in SharePoint Online and an appropriate Event Grid event is emitted and subscribers notified. Or imagine an Office 365 email is sent or received an appropriate Event Grid event is emitted and subscribers notified etc.

    Current solutions require polling change logs which is extremely inefficient, does not scale well & suffers from throttling issues.

    The detail of events emitted should be configurable so that all or partial meta-data is supported.
