    • External CSS and Source Maps during development

      During Development debugging CSS can be hard because all style resource are directly embedded on the page. Whenever I like to inspect a particular element it point to the workbench HTML somewhere and the origin of the CSS definitions are located.

      My suggestion is to treat CSS/SASS files during development in workbench as external files with source maps that point to the original SASS file rather then directly embed the CSS.

      In production the behaviour can stay the same.

      I think this feature would be beneficial for many developers.

      • Support RegistrationType "ContentType" in Command Set Extensions

        This suggestion stems from a discussion held in the SP Dev Docs at https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/871. Documentation has indicated support of setting the RegistrationType to "ContentType" in a Command Set Extension. However, this setting is not actually supported (as mentioned in the closing comment on the issue). We feel this setting is quite important and should be supported by Command Set Extensions. Without this setting, your only option is to target a List Template (RegistrationType="List"). This is very problematic when you are attempting to target the Command Set Extension to a specific list or even multiple lists with specific content types.…

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • Add an alert for sending notifications hourly in SharePoint

              the main purpose of this idea is for the users who are in different time zone for such users it would not be convenient to select a particular time frame in cases where admins require immediate notification of the user activities.
              As customized alerts option is not available in SharePoint this can be implemented only by the development team.

              • 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.)

                • 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 the possibility to update a multi valued managed metadata column using REST API when updating an item

                    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

                    • Provide method for extending out of box SPFX web Parts

                      Much like the classic SSOM model of extending OOB web parts, provide a way (or open source them ;-)) the SPFX web parts to allow Devs to build upon what you have already built.

                      Its a bit old school, but has value in providing Devs a way to extend existing web parts leverage them and tweak them according to specific requirements. Perhaps with a change caveat that if you change it does not update our custom ones based upon it.

                      • Modern page extensions

                        It would be great to add commands to the command set of a modern page, with similar events to list view extensions e.g. onListViewUpdated > onPageUpdated, and onExecute.

                        The API should enable easy and reliable access to important page information like field data, published state, whether it is promoted as news, etc.

                        • Write to Web Property Bags

                          The ability to both read and write to the various property bags would be very helpful. Currently it's possible to read from a web property bag, but not to write. It'd be even better if the other property bags supported this.

                          • Provide gulp task to deploy JS bundle to Office 365 CDN (Like deploy-azure-storage)

                            It would be great to see a task to deploy SharePoint Framework App/Ext JS to Office 365 CDN. The azure gulp task deploy-azure-storage deploys assets to azure automatically and helps speed up the production process. Currently we have to manually upload resources or script manually (which is time consuming). It would really help with making Office 365 CDN easier to use.

                            • Provide a ChangeType for Data Governance label modifications in the Change Log

                              Currently any application of a Data Governance label to a List Item has only a SystemUpdate Change associated with it, even if the Label was applied manually by a user. When trying to detect a change in Label, this necessitates the inspection of every List Item following a SystemUpdate Change to see whether or not the _ComplianceTag field has changed.
                              Ideally, we would be able to make a ChangeQuery that did not include all SystemUpdates, but did include changes which involved the modification of a Data Governance Label.

                                • PowerShell CSOM (Sharepoint Online) / PNP Powershell - Rootfolder.storagemetrics properties loading as zero

                                  When navigating CSOM using PowerShell or PNP cmdlets to expose rootfolder.storagemetrics properties (totalsize, totalfilestreamsize, totalfilecount, lastmodified) in SharePoint Online, these are all loading as zero for site collections, sites, list/libraries, subfolders, etc (even after being loaded properly). These same properties are successfully exposed through REST API as well as using the SPO Client Browser application.

                                  Example code:
                                  PNP Powershell:

                                  $web = Get-PnPWeb -Includes RootFolder, RootFolder.StorageMetrics
                                  $web.RootFolder.StorageMetrics
                                  #Return#

                                  • App catalog Trust prompt for external dependencies too in the SharePoint Framework

                                    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

                                      • SharePoint Framework Extension to override sub site creation link

                                        Sub: SPFX Extension - Subsite link override - Modern Experience

                                        In classic experience, we are redirecting the users to a provider hosted site request form instead of out of the box site request page(/_layouts/15/newsbweb.aspx) using custom action. We are trying to create a SPFX Application Customizer to replace this functionality by getting the Subsite button element by name and attaching a click event which will redirect the users to the provider hosted site request form. But the logic is not 100% working as there is delay in rendering the dropdown values on new button click.

                                        What is the right way…

                                        • Enable loading indicator method (displayLoadingIndicator) for CommandSets

                                          The SPFx web part interface defines methods for displaying and clearing a standard loading indicator (in IClientSideWebPartStatusRenderer), however this does not exist in equivalent BaseListViewCommandSet class. Or anywhere else I can find.

                                          Currently I'm using some garbage jQuery DOM manipulation to suffice but it would be great if we could do a simple:
                                          this.context.statusRenderer.displayLoadingIndicator(...);
                                          To show the standard SP page loading indicator during async operations, something that every one of my cmd-sets have.

                                          Thanks,
                                          Martin
