  1. Content type remote event receivers

    Remote event receivers can currently, in SharePoint Online, not be added to content types (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.client.contenttype_members.aspx). This makes it somehow tedious to catch events that are fired from items of a specific content type is added/updated/deleted. Having the possibility to add an event receiver to a content type would make this scenario easier to implement.

    • 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.

      • Make Localization accessible for QuickLaunch NavigationNode and WebPart titles

        Hi all,

        It would be really nice to add more support for localization in CSOM for SharePoint on-prem and online.

        In server side object model, it possible to localize NavigationNode (SPNavigationNode) using the TitleResource property like this:

        using (var site = new SPSite("https://UrlToMySharePointSite"))
        {
        using (var web = site.OpenWeb())
        {
        var nodes = web.Navigation.QuickLaunch;
        foreach (SPNavigationNode node in nodes)
        {
        node.TitleResource.SetValueForUICulture(new CultureInfo(1036), "My French Title");
        }
        }
        }

        Same for WebPart Title. I've found a way to do this but don't have tested it (I tested it for NavigationNode but doesn't work) : http://sadomovalex.blogspot.ch/2015/09/localize-web-part-titles-via-client.html

        As we have a…

        • 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

          • Enable saving sites that contain SPFx web parts as templates

            Creating site templates that include preconfigured web parts on the landing page is a common requirement. We can add and configure classic OOB web parts on a landing page and save the site as a template, and we can do script injection customisations and save the site as a template. However, if a site includes an SPFx web part, we get the error message:

            "Sorry, this site can't be saved as a template. It contains apps that don't work in templates"

            This is currently a blocker in an area where a SharePoint Framework approach would otherwise be ideal.

            • Add Records.BypassLocks to the Client APIs

              CSOM contains very few methods compared to the Server Object Model equivalent relating to records management.

              There are only three methods; DeclareAsRecord, IsRecord and UndeclareAsRecord available to clients, compared to 25 methods in the Server Object Model.

              Many records management solutions for SharePoint that exist today as Full-Trust solutions make use of methods that are not included in CSOM, but a large number of these can be worked around with existing CSOM (for example, finding the declaration date of a record).

              One very important method that is missing however is Records.BypassLocks.

              This method is used to support a variety of…

              • Improve Analytics support for SharePoint Online & O365 sites

                We can't fetch the page views, pages viewed by the users and other analytical data for the SharePoint Online & O365 sites, as the Usage & Health Analyzer service is not configured. It would be of great help if the analytics for the SharePoint Online & O365 works in the same manner of On-Premise sites (or) similar to SharePoint 2010.

                • pageContext.web.description and pageContext.user.id

                  Web description and user id are both strangely missing from the page context. It would be great of they were available.

                  • Increase Session Timeout for SharePoint Online

                    I would like to increase the Session timeout for SharePoint Online. Allow a SharePoint Admin to configure their own timeout setting. As we Map our SharePoint Sites, 5 days is less than we would like. 30 days would be nice or the ability to set it myself.

                      The full width section on communication pages only allows the hero and images web part. It would be great if we could deploy custom full width web parts that can be added to this section.

                      • Allow non-Typescript option in generator-sharepoint

                        Although Typescript is perfectly fine, some organizations do not want to spend time acclimating their processes around it when they are comfortable writing in es2015 with webpack and normal linting.

                        Some MS Pros even take it out after generating new projects! https://medium.com/@Mizzle__Mo/replace-typescript-with-es2015-for-sharepoint-framework-applications-4385d9071c4c

                        It would be great if this could be an option in the generator-sharepoint. I'd be happy to venture a PR if you were to make the generator available on github.

                        • BUG: Online workbench doesn't reflect the theme colors of the parent web properly

                          There is a bug in the Online Workbench that you are not able to test theming on your web parts when the following two themes will be used:
                          * Dark Yellow
                          * Dark Blue

                          As documented in the Issue on GitHub https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1064

                          This would be really beneficial for testing web parts and how they look like when different themes will be used.

                            • External CSS and Source Maps during development

                              During Development debugging CSS can be hard because all style resource are directly embedded on the page. Whenever I like to inspect a particular element it point to the workbench HTML somewhere and the origin of the CSS definitions are located.

                              My suggestion is to treat CSS/SASS files during development in workbench as external files with source maps that point to the original SASS file rather then directly embed the CSS.

                              In production the behaviour can stay the same.

                              I think this feature would be beneficial for many developers.

                              • Column Formatting String Operations

                                Add additional string options to Declarative Customization Column Formatting. Specfically:

                                Unary Operations:
                                length
                                toLowerCase()
                                toUpperCase()
                                trim

                                Binary Operations:
                                indexOf
                                lastIndexOf
                                endsWith
                                startsWith

                                Additional Operations:
                                replace
                                substring
                                padStart
                                padEnd

                                The order of operands, the return value, and the functionality would all match their JavaScript equivalents.

                                Having these would greatly increase the power of Column Formatting both in terms of string formatting but also with powerful conditional formatting. Without these basic operations, Column Formatting is still pretty limited.

                                • SharePoint App/Add-In Development for On Premises - include Workflows as Integrated within the App like you allow in Office 365

                                  Today, when I create a new SharePoint Add-In (App), I cannot include the SharePoint 2013 workflow within my app (On Premises only). I see there is a workaround for Office 365 Add-Ins, but we are not in the cloud yet. I also see Visual Studio 2015 has a setting for Integrated App (true/false), but not sure if this will work on premises yet (will try this out soon). I need the ability to include my custom SharePoint 2013 Declarative workflow as part of my custom add-in (app) for on premises. Bill Baer stated that my app will work the same…

                                  • Add the possibility to update a multi valued managed metadata column using REST API when updating an item

                                    When updating an item using REST API it is currently supported to update a managed metadata column if we'd like to add only one term.
                                    It would be very useful if we could update a managed metadata column to add several terms when updating an item using REST API

                                    • Provide a ChangeType for Data Governance label modifications in the Change Log

                                      Currently any application of a Data Governance label to a List Item has only a SystemUpdate Change associated with it, even if the Label was applied manually by a user. When trying to detect a change in Label, this necessitates the inspection of every List Item following a SystemUpdate Change to see whether or not the _ComplianceTag field has changed.
                                      Ideally, we would be able to make a ChangeQuery that did not include all SystemUpdates, but did include changes which involved the modification of a Data Governance Label.

                                        • App catalog Trust prompt for external dependencies too in the SharePoint Framework

                                          It would be great if all the referenced external dependencies (scripts) were listed in the trust prompt in the app catalog,
                                          eventually the same for scripts dynamically loaded through the SPComponentLoader with the external scripts dynamically loaded should be declared.
                                          This would prevent any way of code "injection" without the explicit consent of the app catalog administrator
