  1. Extensions: Command Set Enhancements

    It would be great to have next features in Command Set:
    * refresh command UI when it was executed (for example, change its state to 'pressed' or change the title) or any other command was executed as well
    * onDispose method to release resources
    * split buttons support (commands in sub menu)

      • Allow to use Office UI Fabric Icons and other fonts as Command Set icons

        It would be great if we are able to use font icons instead of url to images for Command Set extensions buttons icons.
        This allow 3d party extensions look more aligned with 1st party (same style, same icon color)

        • Filters and sortings in RelatedItemsList don't work after installing CU's

          We have a Sharepoint Farm 2016 upgraded from 2010 and 2013. Each month we install the CU in order to always be up to date.

          Today I noticed that the filters and sort options in a RelatedItemsList of any DispForm don't work anymore. Each call returns 0 elements (empy array).

          By clicking on the column header the menu opens but no filter values are loaded since the server returns an empty array. By sorting on column no results are returned too, so the list results empty.

          The installed CU us the 16.0.4561.1000, July 2017.
          Same beaviour installing CU 16.0.4588.1000.

            • Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items

              Workflow using REST on an indexed lookup to another list in the same web fails with a generic error when the active list is over 5k items. Works fine if under 5k items in the source list. This is contrary to the documentation on using rest - either update the documentation or fix this issue.

              • Sharepoint filtering not working in Chrome as of last week and the response is to that Sharepoint only optimized for IE

                At the direction of your help staff we use Chrome as our main browser. As of last week, filtering is not working, and when I spoke with two different support from 365 they told me that Chrome will no longer be supported and that we need to switch to IE, which we continually have problems with...locking up constantly.

                  • Enable Communication Site Pages to work with custom Site Columns and Content Types

                    If communication sites are meant to replace the classic "publishing" pages, site developers will need to be able to make use of custom Site Columns and Content Types as we have in the past. Currently developers can add custom elements to the Site Pages library in which Communication Sites pages are created, but those custom elements do not display when the pages are put in edit mode or the form to edit the page's properties is displayed.

                    • Empty value for Choice Field

                      If a Choice field is not mandatory there should be the possibility to set it blank in the New/Editforms through UI by each user.

                      • Allow users to move content easily to new folders or subfolders created.

                        Please allow users to move content around easily. It is a bit frustrating having to redownload images or other content onto my computer, just to reupload it to the new folder.

                        • Apply the same process when creating documents in libraries

                          Depending on the way it is performed, depending on library settings, depending on browser file creation in library is always a different process. I think it would be nice for end users if the process would be the same all the time:
                          - ask the user for a file name
                          - if mandatory metadata (without default values): display metadata form
                          - then open document (in client or web application)

                              • Anonymous users used to access the embedded JS add-ins in Excel Online now they cannot.

                                Excel files can host add-ins in them. And when the users opened the Excel file on Excel Online through a Edit No-signin link, they could activate the addin. Now they cannot. Only authenticated users can see these add-ins. This change in behavior causes problems to people like us who try to embed add-ins in Excel files and share them.

                                • let us configure sp-page-context settings on the workbench

                                  when developing spfx webparts that will serve as listforms (for example added to edit form.aspx), we can use sp-page-context splits and splits item to determine the list and item we are working on.

                                  it would be nice if the workbench could let us configure these parameters so that when developing, we could mimic the real environment.

                                    After clicking the close button in view documents properties page directly redirect to document library rather then back (popup page).

                                    • Provide items version history with REST

                                      Allow REST clients to retrieve all list item versions with all available metadata for each version. This idea is the same as recently implemented for CSOM:

                                      • Need expansion of the number of characters that can be used in a REST Call from SharePoint Designer Call Action

                                        The number of characters available before the REST Call returns BadRequest is much too low. This is especially true when using SharePoint Designer Call action to copy a document from one library to another. Another option would be to configure the call for copyTo to use parameters so that the entire call is not required to be in one URL, instead the parameters could be added to a the parameter dictionary
