  1. Add support of SharePoint Framework solution packages to the AppSource Store

    The latest adjustments in the Microsoft Store police allows store's add-in to works with conjunction with another add-in that is available only from the provider. The solution package (.sppkg) build with SharePoint framework is not classified as 'add-in'. Thus, we cannot add add-in in the Store that depend on SPFx solution and there is no way of delivering customizations to the modern page.
    I can offered two options for solving this issue: 1) Adjustment of point 4.18 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/store/validation-policies#bk_4) from the Store policy to allows SPFx modifications 2) ApPSource store to start allowing .sppkg solution packages to be added

    • 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…

        • 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.

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

            This will enable developers to build richer property searching applications.

            • Need more placeholders for spfx extensions

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

              We also need to display properties of a folder in a document library on top of the document library name or next to the document library name or some best place to show the document library folders information which can also be on top of the document library fields.

              Above feature can be easily achieved through CEWP and jquery in the classic experience.

                • 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.

                  • Extensions: AppCustomizer - Register Event Listeners in Modern Page DOM

                    It would be great if there was a controlled way to leverage AppCustomizers to register event listeners in modern pages. This capability will empower enterprise developers to create sophisticated auditing and usage reporting solutions for SPO. e.g. Tracking how many times a given user has downloaded files by tracking the “click” event on the file download button and coupling that event with page context information.

                      Support was added in March 2018 to read the CustomScriptSafeDomains settings for a site - we'd like the possibility to modify this setting through the CSOM API - not methods are currently available to modify this settings through code.

                      • Extensions : application customer include a left-nav placeholder which will allow options to hide, pane or customise

                        there are many requests for leftnav customisation options which often come in business requirements. Nav is always something that users get quite excited about.

                        why not combine this with the work being considered on new placeholders for the application customizer

                        include a simple script way of specifying that you want

                        no left hav
                        narrow left nav with icons only (like VS code)
                        standard left nav but in flyout pane to conserve space(like modern details pane)
                        fully customised and specified in extension

                          • Field Customizer: expose List Item data to TypeScript API

                            Currently there are some problems with getting List Item data from API for Field Customizer: event.fieldValue that is available in onRenderCell event sometimes contains not what actually expected or what is not enough.
                            For example, Hyperlink or Picture field has 2 properties that should be available in Field Customizer: url and descripbtion, but only url is available now.
                            Of course, most of the needed values could be requested via REST but it would slow the rendering for the column significantly.

                            Given that the information is already preloaded on the page, ideally this information should be exposed via an SPFx TypeScript…

                                  • 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 Popup Behavior when consuming APIs secured with Azure AD within the SharePoint Framework

                                      When using the AadHttpClient within a SPFx WebPart, a popup appears that is currently necessary to facilitate authenticate to Azure AD (part of ADAL JS). While this is understandable if the user needs to supply additional authentication components, if the user has the necessary rights to the Azure secured API, no popup should be presented.

                                      Scenarios where this behavior is not acceptable:
                                      - Pages with multiple third party data sources (user is bombarded with popups)
                                      - High traffic landing pages (like corporate home pages) where look & feel are crucial

                                      Documentation on behavior:

                                      • 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.

                                        • Allow spfx webparts to be added to classic publishing pages

                                          When trying to add SPFX webpart to classic publishing page, sp.runtime.js is trying to load twice which is causing a conflict and resulting in the page to breaking, I have tried a few workaround but hasn't solved my issue.
