  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Add MFA Support for .Net Standard CSOM

    With the new support of CSOM with .Net Standard we should be able to acquire tokens with accounts that have MFA enabled and not just regular accounts that don't have added security.

  6. make the SPFx workbench wider

    When developing a web part for "supportedHosts": ["SharePointFullPage"] it will be nice to have the full width of the page while debugging in /_layouts/15/workbench.aspx too.
    It is very hard to see just half the width of the final web part.

  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

  10. SPO anchor links need to work after authentication is completed

    Microsoft's engineering team confirmed that after authentication is completed and redirected to the original SharePoint URL, the fragment (#anything-after-the-hash) part in original URL is missing due to its current design. This is part of a browser limitation as the browser itself doesn't send the URL fragment to the server.

  11. 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.

  12. Listing SharePoint Site Collection URLs in a Web App should have a special permission to avoid giving too much admin access

    Listing site collection URLs in a web app should be a special permission by itself. Many times you end up giving full admin rights to a user just because you need that ability. And this forces you to violate the principal of Least Permissions.

    Make the ability to give access to list site collections without being a full admin.

  13. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. Support Compliance Tag on list level using REST API

    Today we can apply retention labels to documents using REST and CSOM. Last year CSOM was updated to support list labels.

    I would like for the REST API to support the following:
    1: Listing available labels
    2: Applying a retention label to a list.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
