  1. Workbench: allow to change size of the canvas to match real pages

    It'd to have a button in the workbenches (local, online) to allow us to apply the "layout" (different boxes sizes, flowing behavior, etc) of a team site or a communication site so we can double check rendering of our webparts work well with production dimensions, flowing behavior etc...

    Today the only way to try to mimic that is the tablet mode in the workbench, the browser debug tools or just resizing the window. This offers a poor experience and doesn't guaranty me my webpart is in the same rendering context.

  2. spfx-extension should allow customization of a CommandSet for a page.

    We'd like to add additional buttons/commands to the CommandMenu when a user is viewing pages in our SharePoint online tenant. I thought creating an extension using spfx would allow this but it appears limited only to ListViews.

  3. 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(&quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://UrlToMySharePointSite&quot;)">https://UrlToMySharePointSite&quot;)</a>)
    
    {
    using (var web = site.OpenWeb())
    {
    var nodes = web.Navigation.QuickLaunch;
    foreach (SPNavigationNode node in nodes)
    {
    node.TitleResource.SetValueForUICulture(new CultureInfo(1036), &quot;My French Title&quot;);
    }
    }
    }

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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/

  6. Provide a way to view an HTML file in the browser reather than downloading the file. This totally defeats the purpose

    SharePoint Online does not provide a feature for placing a html file for viewing but rather it downloads the file. This totally defeats the purpose.

  7. Support adding custom CSS to modern pages

    It is silly that and "NoScript" turns off the ability to use css. There is a big difference between making a page readable and writing a web application. Fearing unspecified security issues, large company administrators select "NoScript" to be safe, making sharepoint online the ugliest content management system in the market.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. Create UserProfile Properties programmatically in SPO

    Currently there is no API available to create custom UserProfile properties (and/or sections) in SharePoint Online. Are there any plans (to make this part of the Tenant administration namespace so) this can also be set via code/script as opposed to GUI only?

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Parameter for passing specific Site Design in Modern Team site Creation

    While creating the Modern communication site programmatically through Rest API/ Graph API there is a parameter available to choose the site design.

    Title = "title
    Description = "description
    AllowFileSharingForGuestUsers = false
    Classification = "classification"
    SiteDesign = CommunicationSiteDesign.Topic

    But while creating the modern team site programmatically there is no option to choose the Site Design, by default it is picking up the default Site Design. Even though we can create multiple site script and site design for Teams site, we are not able to specify a site design at the time of provisioning the Group.
    Is there any possibility to choose…

  17. Add an option to disabled fixed header and footer on SharePoint Extensions

    Fixed header and footers sometimes take up too much space on modern pages. I've had several customers ask for the extensions to be fixed to the top/bottom of the page, rather than to the top/bottom of the screen.

  18. Allow Property Pane Groups and Group Fields to be hidden

    Richer editing experiences can be written when group fields and groups can be hidden via property pane configuration - much like group fields can be disabled by passing true to the disabled property.

    The 'disabled' property is not enough for building rich and dynamic editing experiences. Especially when groups of fields need to be disabled based on other properties. We need 'hidden' as well as 'disabled' and preferably the ability to hide groups as well as group fields.

    The current solutions for dynamically showing property pane controls involves creating wrapper controls and frankly when it comes to developing SharePoint sites…

  19. 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.

  20. 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
