  1. Azure Event Grid integration for all Office 365 platforms (SharePoint, Outlook, Dynamics 365 etc)

    All Office 365 platforms, starting with SharePoint should be integrated with & emit Azure Event Grid events! Imagine a user creates or views a file in SharePoint Online and an appropriate Event Grid event is emitted and subscribers notified. Or imagine an Office 365 email is sent or received an appropriate Event Grid event is emitted and subscribers notified etc.

    Current solutions require polling change logs which is extremely inefficient, does not scale well & suffers from throttling issues.

    The detail of events emitted should be configurable so that all or partial meta-data is supported.

    • Provide CSOM API for Enabling/Disabling the option "Allow items in this list to be edited using Quick Edit and the Details Pane"

      Provide CSOM API for Enabling/Disabling the option "Allow items in this list to be edited using Quick Edit and the Details Pane".

      After migration of SharePoint Previous versions to SharePoint online, there are instances where the quick edit or edits from details pane needs to be disabled, for lists across thousands of site collections. This is very challenging task if has to be done manually for huge scale of site collections.

      • Improve Popup Behavior when consuming APIs secured with Azure AD within the SharePoint Framework

        When using the AadHttpClient within a SPFx WebPart, a popup appears that is currently necessary to facilitate authenticate to Azure AD (part of ADAL JS). While this is understandable if the user needs to supply additional authentication components, if the user has the necessary rights to the Azure secured API, no popup should be presented.

        Scenarios where this behavior is not acceptable:
        - Pages with multiple third party data sources (user is bombarded with popups)
        - High traffic landing pages (like corporate home pages) where look & feel are crucial

        Documentation on behavior:
        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/use-aad-tutorial

        GitHub Issue relating to this:

        • 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.…

          • 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.

            • Flicker Issue when loading Branding Artifacts (css, js etc.) using SPFx Extension in Modern SharePoint Site

              Need help for the following scenario wherein any modern page that gets displayed shows a flicker of the default SharePoint page for 1-2 seconds before the actual page with branding is displayed.
              Details:
              We are facing an issue regarding the user experience in SharePoint Modern sites. For Branding, we have used SPFx Application customizer aka extensions to inject custom styles. With this implementation, we are facing a flicker because extension takes fractions of seconds to load itself. In the meantime, OOB page appears first and then extension starts loading.
              Is there any way to load SPFx extension before SharePoint page…

                • 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 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.

                    See here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vesku/2014/06/09/provisioning-site-collections-using-sp-app-model-in-on-premises-with-just-csom/

                    • 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…

                      • 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!

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                              • QuickLinks property of UserProfile is not available through CSOM/REST, need to have it!!

                                We are writing custom service for replacing existing SharePoint ASMX web services with CSOM/REST APIs as part of Infopath remediation for our organization. Currently, there is a method “GetUserLinks” of User Profile service(asmx) which returns group of Quick Links for a given User Profile.

                                We tried getting “QuickLinks” data via CSOM as well as REST API and though the property “QuickLinks” is present in the properties array, data against it is returned as an empty string. We are able to get values of other Properties like Department, Title etc. but only Quick Links is returned as Empty string.

                                To eliminate…

                                  • /_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.

                                        • 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
