    • Updating existing projects to newer SPFx builds

      When building an SPFx project on current version of SPFx build, it is very hard to upgrade this to the latest SPFx builds that are coming out after while still enjoying all the new features that are a part of that latest version.

      This includes breaking changes that prevents the code from compiling, but also more importantly: added configuration options and features to the different config files that are a part of the project, or changes to the schema that adds a few more options that are a part of the new SPFx build.

      These changes today have to be…

      • Add CSOM API to choose content database and quota when creating site collections

        In the April 2014 Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2013 (released on 7th of May 2014) you published the possibility to create site collections remotely via the CSOM API.

        Till today it's not possible to choose a desired content database where the site collection should be stored in or to configure a quota template.

        Senior Program Manager Vesa Juvonen from Microsoft wrote a detailed blog article about this topic and received a broad response from the community where many people need these missing features.

        See here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vesku/2014/06/09/provisioning-site-collections-using-sp-app-model-in-on-premises-with-just-csom/

        • 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.

          • Add support to hide List View Command Set buttons

            In the classic experience it's possible to hide ribbon buttons and menu options in the ECB. In the modern UI this currently isn't possible.
            Please add support to also hide OOTB List View Command Set buttons and ECB items in the modern UI.

            In the Classic view this could be done by a Custom Action:

            <CustomAction
            Id="RemoveRibbonButtonLibrary"
            Location="CommandUI.Ribbon"
            RegistrationId="101"
            RegistrationType="List">>
            <CommandUIExtension>
            <CommandUIDefinitions>
            <CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.Library.Actions.ExportToSpreadsheet" />
            </CommandUIDefinitions>
            </CommandUIExtension>
            </CustomAction>

            But this currently doesn't work for the Modern UI.

            • Add support in CSOM to modify the CustomScriptSafeDomains settings for a site

              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.

              • Make SPFx projects compatible with TSLint VSCode extension

                Make SPFx projects compatible with TSLint VSCode extension by either moving the tslint.json file to the root folder or by creating a new tslint.json at the root that instructs the VSCode extension to look for rules on the config folder

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

                  This will enable developers to build richer property searching applications.

                  • Upon deleting a site collection redirect user to other URL

                    HI Team,

                    Can we get a feature where a user will be redirected to some other URL(Custom) instead of SharePoint default URL once the site is deleted from any place ?

                    Thanks & Regards,
                    Pavan.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                                      When a term set has 'Use default sort order according to current language' set in its custom sort tab the setting gets automatically set to 'Use custom sort order' when a user creates a new page. This fits the definition of a software bug because it is an an unexpected result and unintended behaviour.
