  1. 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.

    • 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:
              Connect-PnPOnline https://tenant.sharepoint.com/
              $web = Get-PnPWeb -Includes RootFolder, RootFolder.StorageMetrics
              $web.RootFolder.StorageMetrics
              #Return#
              LastModified : 1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM
              TotalFileCount : 0
              TotalFileStreamSize : 0
              TotalSize : 0
              Context : OfficeDevPnP.Core.PnPClientContext
              Tag :
              Path : Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ObjectPathProperty
              ObjectVersion :
              ServerObjectIsNull :
              TypedObject : Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.StorageMetrics
              #End#

              Powershell…

              • 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…

                  • 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…

                    • Search API filter Office 365 Group sites by GroupType

                      We have the ability to use the search rest api to search for Office 365 group sites with query similar to:
                      /_api/search/query?querytext='groupname WebTemplate%3AGroup'&trimduplicates=false&Properties='EnableUnifiedGroups:true'

                      Which has the added benefit of also searching Private groups.

                      Please add the ability to further refine this by GroupType, such as only Unified group sites.

                            Currently there is no way to declare a record on modern views unless you dig into the complaince details dialog. Adding this will allow for SPFx extensions to expose this functionality.

                            • Allow Karma extensibility

                              At the moment the Karma configuration is completely closed down, you cannot make additions to it like what you can do with webpack. It would be great to have something similar to extend the Karma configuration to our needs like adding additional reporters, like for example have a way to include HTML test reports. This would make unit tests a lot better / easier compared to checking the console output.

                              • 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…

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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!
