  1. Provide an option to hide webparts in modern webpart toolbox

    Please give us the option to hide webparts on a site level from the webpart toolbox. E.g. if I don't want my users to use the twitter webpart or any other custom or OOTB webparts. Currently there is no way to control what webpart is visibile on what sites. We could do this in classic by adding/removing webparts from the webpart gallery. Some webparts just don't make sense on certain sites. Some webparts don't work on certain sites. There are so many reasons, this is just a must-have!

    • 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.

        • 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…

          • Provide VSTS Build Template for SPFX

            Add a VSTS Build Template to VSTS. So it is easy to build a spfx app with all needed steps and the tooling in the right version.

            • Enable geolocation field in Sharepoint 365

              I see that it's possible to create a map view for the geolocation field in SharePoint, but not for the web-based Sharepoint 365. Please enable this field as default within 365 for online users.

              See here for desktop instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/create-a-map-view-for-the-geolocation-field-in-sharepoint

              • /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/add endpoint should be return CorporateCatalogAppMetadata

                /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/add endpoints returns SP.File object, but it shoud be return Microsoft.SharePoint.Marketplace.CorporateCuratedGallery.CorporateCatalogAppMetadata (same as /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/availableapps/getbyid).\
                After I added a solution package, I can't deploy it because App ID is unknown. Certainly,I can get App ID by ListItemAllFIelds.UniqueId but I think it is very confusing.

                • Ability to Freeze Headers in SharePoint Lists

                  I would think the ability to freeze headers in lists (some become very large) and being able to see the header (similar to how Excel provides the ability to freeze headers) while scrolling should be a given.

                    • 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.

                        • 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

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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

                                        • "FieldValues..." in REST API gives double-encoded field names

                                          As reported by Shai Petel in github (https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1141), column names with non-ASCII characters or "special" characters (i.e. those that get encoded) are being double encoded by the REST API in the FieldValues... properties (this includes FieldValuesAsText, FieldValuesAsHtml, and FieldValuesForEdit).

                                          For example, create a column called "Français" in a list with Title "Test" and call the following REST request: /_api/web/lists/getbytitle('Test')/items?$expand=FieldValuesAsText,FieldValuesAsHtml,FieldValuesForEdit. in the response given the field's internal name is properly shown in the field values as "Fran_x00e7_ais", but is shown as "Fran_x005f_x00e7_x005f_ais" in all of the "FieldValues..." properties.

                                          This makes it very difficult for the developer since you must…
