  1. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. Add support to create list / document library based on custom template to REST API

    If I save list as template I cannot use this template to create new list via REST API because it does not accept template name as input parameter: This is possible in CSOM by passing ListTemplate parameter (https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/255947/creating-a-document-library-from-custom-template-with-folder-structure-inside-us)

    In REST it is possible just to pass ListTemplateTypeKind as BaseTemplate parameter and there is no parameter for custom template name so it is not possible to create new list/library based on custom template (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/working-with-lists-and-list-items-with-rest)

  5. 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.

  6. Add CSOM Method to Release File Locks

    We need the ability to unlock files via CSOM (with an App Only token) via the SPFile.ReleaseLock method. The flow would be similar to what we can accomplish on-prem:

    $web = Get-SPWeb http://webUrl
    $list = $web.Lists['Documents']
    $item = $list.Items[0]
    $lockId = $item.File.LockId
    $item.File.ReleaseLock($lockId)

    This prevents needing to open support cases for long-lived lock files in scenarios where the end user is having connectivity issues causing long exclusive locks to be created, potentially locking the end user out of their own file.

  7. 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,…

  9. Subscribe to list notifications For 'Lists'

    Subscribe to list notifications currently supports only document library events and not 'Lists'.

    I read the consideration as well in which it says 'you can subscribe to events from libraries (but not lists)'.
    But it will it be a great feature if it is supported in the upcoming SPFx versions.

  10. JSON formatting: add support RTF multiline text fields

    JSON formatting supports a few field types, but currently we cannot do any kind of JSON treatment on multiline RTF columns.

    The JSON formatting framework outputs @currentField as text inside the selected elmType.

    I propose two possibilities which are not mutually exclusive to improve compatibility:

    elmType: html

    this elmType would assume the content of the @currentField to be well-formed html, and just use that at the column cell's content.

    @currentField.html
    This selector would treat the contents of the currentfield as well-formed html, and would allow it to be inserted inside an elmType.

    Bonus points if the html tree can be…

  11. 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.…

  12. 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…

  16. Extensions: Command Set asynchronous checking for visibility

  17. Provision SPFx (.sppkg) add-ins on a site on-premise

    ALM API is available now for SPO. SPFx now is available for SP2016 on-prem, too, since Feature Pack 2. But still there is no way to provision .sppkg files (either form local disk or from AppCatalog) on a site. Please, add this. There is no migration path from provider-hosted add-ins to SPFx add-ins for our applications now, because method LoadAndInstallApp() which worked for .app files does not work for .sppkg files.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.
