  1. Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.AuditQuery in CSOM

    It would be good to be able to query the Site Collection Audit data via the client-side object model.

    The current Audit Log Reports can serve a purpose, but the real power is being able to query the raw data and generate custom reports. This currently doesn't appear to be available in SharePoint Online and is only available for On-Prem via Microsoft.SharePoint.SPAuditQuery.

    • Need to simply open html files on SharePoint Online

      In SharePoint server, we can set Browser File Handling to Permissive in order to have the user's browser simply open an html file that appears in a document library. We need to be able to accomplish this functionality in Office 365/SharePoint Online.

      • Ability to upgrade all Apps in environment on update in App Catalog via Store or Side load

        Currently when you deploy an App, any instances of the App will not upgrade until manually done via User Interface. It would be great to be able to Upgrade the App in the App Catalog from the Store or via Side Loading and it upgrade all instances at once.

        • Add Web.Recycle method to CSOM

          The Web class in the CSOM lacks the ability to send a web to the recycle bin. Currently it's only possible to delete a web by using Web.DeleteObject() which makes restoring from recycle bin impossible.

          Please consider adding a Recycle() method to the Web class.

          • Allow calling an HTTP-triggered Flow after installing SPFx solution in a site

            When creating sites using a site design (recipe), one of the available verbs is calling an HTTP-triggered Flow to perform some additional configuration on the newly created site.

            When installing SPFx solutions in a site, we should similarly be able to specify an HTTP-triggered Flow to be called as a part of the installation process. This would not only allow developers to provision configuration beyond what's currently supported with Feature XML, but also create a consistent development experience across the different workloads (site designs vs. SPFx).

            • Provide the ability to create custom User Profile properties using CSOM/REST

              Customers usually creates multiple custom User Profile properties. And there is always a need to script this so that it can be repeated across the environments. Today, the only way is to create these using Web UI. This is a huge problem for customers who are dependent on a large number of custom user profile properties.

              • Modern list experience: Fix filtering for Managed Metadata columns

                the Sharepoint modern list experience is great, but incorrect filtering implementation for Managed Metadata columns prevents us from moving on to this new look.
                Symptom: when creating a list Filter based on a "Managed Metadata" column, the behavior is as follows:
                if the term set on which the Managed Metadata column is based on, contains more than 20 items, the user will have the ability to filter only on the first 20 items via checkboxes. All items in the term set beyond the 20th will be unavailable for filtering. This is because there is no ability to provide a filtering…

                • Extensions: Application Customizer - Loading JS Files in <HEAD> Tags

                  The current architecture of the SPFx Extensions allow for us to populate "Placeholders", such as PageHead and PageFooter with content.

                  If we need to load JS files though, be them stored within SP or externally, we would need to add external references into the <HEAD> tag of the page.

                  We can use the current placeholders to dynamically update the <HEAD> tag, but this seems less then optimal.

                  Classic UCA's allowed for multiple JS references, as well as the sequence in which they were loaded. (Ex: Load jQuery prior to loading a Utility JS file that is dependent on jQuery.)

                  Replicating…

                  • SpFx Hide page until WebParts Load

                    Simply hide the page canvas until all SpFx WebPart promises have resolved for modern sites

                    This would conceivably
                    1. Improve page load performance by not forcing the browser to display several loading gifs/fading animations at the same time
                    2. Improve user experience by displaying a complete page to the user rather than the page "jumping" constantly during the first 3-10 seconds of loading
                    3. Allow developers to add minor CSS updates to the page prior to render using the SharePoint Framework without noticeable "jumping"

                    • CSOM .NET async support

                      CSOM for both Silverlight and JavaScript have an ExecuteQueryAsync method. This is not available for the .NET version.

                      Currently, ExecuteQuery blocks the current thread and in the context of an ASP.Net application this is very resource intensive - the request thread cannot be used to service other threads whilst ExecuteQuery is waiting for a response.

                      ASP.Net applications only have a small number of threads proportionate to the number of cores and the lack of async support makes it very difficult to write SharePoint provider-hosted add-ins capable of handling large numbers of concurrent requests.

                      • Ability to run development and production versions of the SP Fx web parts in two different site collections

                        Currently, the SharePoint Framework solutions are deployed as tenant wide app packages. Thereby, all instances of the web parts refer the JavaScript files from the CDN location specified in the packaged that is deployed in the app catalog. We need the ability to run Development, Staging and Production environments as different Site Collections in the same tenant.

                            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.

                          • Expose search managed properties and result sources through REST and CSOM.

                            This will enable developers to build richer property searching applications.

                              • Allow for admins to specify CDN location when installing SPFx App package

                                I'd like to have the option for an admin to 1) load upp the script and other resources in a customer owned or managed CDN location and 2) allow the admin to specify that location when adding the .sppkg file into the app catalog.
                                This would allow for more flexible usage of SPFx applications and also allow enterprises to have better governance of the script resources - which would increase the adoption of SPFx and also allow ISV's to create more solutions.

                                  • Open Source or at least Source Open the Yeoman Generator

                                    Plain and simple, I was hoping to see the source of the generator get released. The main reason is to see how things are done and how we can possibly improve on your process.

                                    I'm fine if you don't want to go full open source in the sense where you take PR contributions from the community (although I don't understand that reason), but at the very least you should do what's considered **source open** where you share the source code but don't accept PR's & contributions.

                                    • Add the possibility to set the Owner when creating a SharePoint Group using REST API

                                      It is currently not possible to set the Owner of a SharePoint Group using REST API or maybe I don't have right syntax...

                                      • Expose NavigationNode.TitleResource in CSOM & JSOM

                                        You can already localize using SetValueForUICulture() for TitleResource or NameResource and DescriptionResource properties of Web, List, ContentType, and Field. What is missing is the ability to do this for NavigationNode and maybe CommandUIExtension to make localization complete.

                                        • Increase the size limit of 50mb for zip file generate while using built-in document set downloader page

                                          While using the /_layouts/DocSetExport.aspx?List={ListId}&ID={ItemId} link, we found that the zips created for documents whose total size exceeds 50mb is corrupted, in the Sharepoint online environment. It would be nice if this limit is increased
