  1. 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.

  2. 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.…

  3. Allow assigning user profiles a subtype through an API

    It would be nice if an API would be added which would allow changing the user profile subtype of users in SharePoint Online. As far as I could find at present only through the SPO Admin WebUI you can make those changes. That won't fly for large amounts of users.

  4. Allow certain parts of a Modern page to be hidden

    Outside of the standard areas of a Modern page that can be customized through apps (top placeholder, bottom placeholder, and web parts), we would love the ability to hide other parts of the page in order to achieve a customized look and feel.

    We are selectively hiding features such as:
    - Hub nav
    - "Composite header" which includes:
    - Site logo
    - Site title
    - Top nav
    - Follow/Share buttons
    - Search box

    We are relying on injecting override CSS with our Application Customizer Extension. This is not a reliable method as it's not supported. Certain html id values such…

  7. 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.

  9. Increase the size limit of 50mb for zip file generate while using built-in document set downloader page

    While using the /_layouts/DocSetExport.aspx?List={ListId}&ID={ItemId} link, we found that the zips created for documents whose total size exceeds 50mb is corrupted, in the Sharepoint online environment. It would be nice if this limit is increased

  10. Users with SharePoint Admin roles should be able to add (and remove) Site Collection App Catalogs

    A user that has been granted the role SharePoint Admin should have administrative rights over the site collections. This should include being able to add (and remove) site collection app catalogs. This should be particularly true when that user is also the site collection administrator.

    The error message says "Must have Manage Web Site permissions or be a tenant admin in order to add or remove sites from the site collection app catalog allow list"

    Site Collection administrators have manage web permissions, minimally, yet are unable to do so. This doesn't make sense. This was reported as a bug but…

  11. Managed metadata navigation term set sorting

    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. In all other settings in the term store administration and in site settings they only need to be set once and they stay set. But this one you have to go and set it back to the 'default' one after creating each new web page in…

  14. Make it possible to completely hide an SPFx web part at runtime

    It should be possible to create a web part that will decide to hide or show at runtime -- for example, when you want to say "Don't show this webpart if there are no results", and it should show no spaces or gaps in the page.

    Although it is possible with CSS to approximate this, there is always a gap in the page.

    I would suggest that you make the web part visible in Edit mode, regardless of its settings, so that page editors can access the web part settings.

  15. 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.

  17. Mega Menu Item Customizer (SPFx)

    It would be great to have an SPFx Extension for mega menu items, similarly to Field Customizer.
    It will allow to add custom icons/pictures, change rendering to have, let's say title and description, and so on.

  19. Fix search wildcard issue or provide more useful message

    We have found an issue with property queries using REST that also occurs when using the SharePoint UI via a browser. Using the following query results in an error in the browser and also when executing the query via the REST API:

    Title:"Jan de*"

    I seems that any property query on Title that contains more than one word and where the last word has a wildcard at the end results in this error:

    Search has encountered a problem that prevents results from being returned. If the issue persists, please contact your administrator.

    Correlation ID...

    The following variations all work fine:
