    • 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…

      • Calendar overlay limitations.

        Currently Calendar Overlay allows to add calendars which are present within the same site collections. It would be good, if it can connect the calendars across all site collections.

        • Workflow Logging

          When a workflow has been finished in SharePoint then the Workflow Cleanup Job removes old tasks and all the workflow related action after a defined period of time. This makes sense to keep the SharePoint List small.
          In certain secarios you need to keep the workflow information for a longer period of time. For example to prove who have published a document and what was the outcome of the tasks. I would suggest that the cleanup job remove the information form the task lists and move it to some sort of archive database where all the workflow information will stay…

          • Add ability to set SecondaryContact for site collection administrators via CSOM

            Currently via CSOM we can set the Primary site collection administrator via the SP.Site.Owner property, but we cannot set or change the Secondary administrator (SPSite.SecondaryContact property). Please include the ability via CSOM to set the SecondaryContact property so that we can set secondary contacts on site collections in bulk or via a script. This would help with managing large numbers of site collections in a tenant, where SCAs move or change frequently and need to be reset.

                • Be able to connect web parts via CSOM

                  While traditional "connected" web parts appear to be on their way out, there are still some scenarios where setting up web part connections is very valid for creating a solution in SharePoint (not beside SharePoint ala the App/Add-In model approach).

                  I suggest you create the ability to connect web parts via the remote provisioning approach (CSOM) so that we can continue to build automated/scripted deployments of solutions, without having to manually wire up web parts.

                        With another link to Google doc it works (blue button)

                        However after several tests on internet explorer and on safari it works. So there is a problem with modern navigators

                        I let you see what is problem or contact me for more…

                          • Provide a means to control what happens if remote event receiver cannot be reached

                            Presently, if a remote event receiver service cannot be reached, SharePoint immediately continues with the original operation and we have no control over that.

                            We need a way to indicate in EventReceiverDefinitionCreationInformation what should happen if our RER service cannot be reached. Perhaps something like this.

                            var rer = new EventReceiverDefinitionCreationInformation
                            {
                            ...
                            ActionIfNotContactable = { Cancel | Continue }
                            }

                            • New list using custom list template via CSOM and PowerShell

                              The current SPO CSOM api does not allow for creation of lists using valid custom list templates.

                              We can load the list templates and access them via PowerShell using CSOM, but cannot create new lists using them.

                              Creation of lists using the custom list templates via the SP UI works fine, but is very time consuming if trying to created automated deployment of lists and list content.

                              Otherwise, you have to brute force a new list, add the content type, make lists edits, and add content using separate scripts.

                                  • Sharepoint 2013: Moving folder

                                    It is absolutely crazy that we cannot move folders around in SP13. Can this feature please be added ASAP.

                                    • API for Application Integration

                                      When integrating SP Online information in external - non O365 based applications - we are currently limited to coded approaches using the REST API O365 capabilities. In addition to that it would be great if O365 would provide an API like it is available in Powerbi (http://bit.ly/2axzNSS). Such an API should support the integration of Sharepoint online pages directly with the aim of displaying the SP page in external applicatoins

                                      • Improve multilingual support

                                        2013 was a lot better than previous version with multilingual support but there is still room for improvement.

                                        Especially when provisioning with PowerShell.
                                        -The SetValueForUICulture() method is not always working as expected.
                                        -It's not easy to change webpart title or content
                                        -Navigation items have strange behaviors.
