  1. Add an option to disabled fixed header and footer on SharePoint Extensions

    Fixed header and footers sometimes take up too much space on modern pages. I've had several customers ask for the extensions to be fixed to the top/bottom of the page, rather than to the top/bottom of the screen.

      • BUG: Online workbench doesn't reflect the theme colors of the parent web properly

        There is a bug in the Online Workbench that you are not able to test theming on your web parts when the following two themes will be used:
        * Dark Yellow
        * Dark Blue

        As documented in the Issue on GitHub https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/1064

        This would be really beneficial for testing web parts and how they look like when different themes will be used.

        • pageContext.web.description and pageContext.user.id

          Web description and user id are both strangely missing from the page context. It would be great of they were available.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • Fix search wildcard issue or provide more useful message

                We have found an issue with property queries using REST that also occurs when using the SharePoint UI via a browser. Using the following query results in an error in the browser and also when executing the query via the REST API:

                Title:"Jan de*"

                I seems that any property query on Title that contains more than one word and where the last word has a wildcard at the end results in this error:

                Search has encountered a problem that prevents results from being returned. If the issue persists, please contact your administrator.

                  • Add Records.BypassLocks to the Client APIs

                    CSOM contains very few methods compared to the Server Object Model equivalent relating to records management.

                    There are only three methods; DeclareAsRecord, IsRecord and UndeclareAsRecord available to clients, compared to 25 methods in the Server Object Model.

                    Many records management solutions for SharePoint that exist today as Full-Trust solutions make use of methods that are not included in CSOM, but a large number of these can be worked around with existing CSOM (for example, finding the declaration date of a record).

                    One very important method that is missing however is Records.BypassLocks.

                    This method is used to support a variety of…

                    • 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

                          • 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…

                                      • 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…
