  1. 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.

    • Give opportunity to remove or deactivate standard SPFx client webparts

      It would be great to have the possibility to remove or deactivate certain standard client webparts like the "yammer feed".

      Many companies don't even use yammer and it would just confuse users. Or at least have the possibility that the yammer client side webpart is only shown, when yammer is activated for the tenant.

      This is also explained in stack overflow:

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  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.

                      • 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…

                          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

                              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

                              • 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…

                                  "Invalid data has been used to update the list item. The field you are trying to update may be read only."

                                  This function is crucial for us and our client and I need to know if its possible to fix or not at least.

                                  I posted this question in your Tec form and was delegated to post it here so as reference for this ticket:https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/3bb2cce5-ec7f-4aaa-829c-9319c5c68194/sharepoint-2013-calendar-app-quick-edit-mode-in-all-object-list-bug?forum=sharepointdevelopment

                                  Thanks for any help.

                                  • Field Customizer: Ability to call ootb render method

                                    Allow to call out of the box render for cell in custom field customizer.

                                    Use case:
                                    based on user permissions render out of the box LinkTitle cell or custom copmonent with additional logic.

                                    This scenario is needed for all types of fields that are rendered as complicated HTML, not just text (LinkTitle, User or Group fields, etc.)

                                    • Fix the Sharepoint Mobile InfoPath Forms Viewer page

                                      Hi,

                                      I am finding that the Mobile View of InfoPath forms is broken. I want to let the community know so that this will get escalated to the development team so that it can be fixed.

                                      To reproduce this behavior:

                                      1. Create an SharePoint forms library.

                                      2. Using InfoPath Forms Designer, create a very simple InfoPath Form Template.

                                      3. Publish the template to you forms library.

                                      4. Create a new instance of the form in your library.

                                      5. Try to view the form on your mobile device.

                                      6. You will get a "Something Went Wrong" error and a correlation error.

                                      • Spell Checker in Wiki Pages

                                        Currently, the Spell Check option is only available on the the Publishing Sites. It would be great if we have this spell checker option in the SharePoint Site Collection Wiki pages without activating Publishing features.

                                        Thanks & Regards,
                                        Bhanu

                                        • Allow column default values for lists and not just document libraries.

                                          Currently, column Default Values is only available for document libraries. Please allow them to be set on all lists.
