  1. Improve the SPFx Dialog Class

    The recently released Dialog class in the SharePoint Framework is a lovely idea but doesn't go nearly as far as it should and is currently very limited in its usefulness. I would like to request the following enhancements:

    1. Allow a parameter for a custom Title; currently they always say only "Alert" and "Prompt" and cannot be changed

    2. Allow specification of the classic alert icons (info, warning, question, error)

    3. Allow specification of a custom icon, preferably from the Office UI Fabric

    4. Allow specification of traditional button sets (ok, ok-cancel, yes-no, etc.) and/or custom button sets using a…

    • Geolocation services on Sharepoint App for mobile devices

      I created a Sharepoint Framework webpart that uses geolocation services from the Navigator type on the browser and works fine on the browsers from desktop PCs, however on the sharepoint app, as it does not request location services permissions, the webpart does not work.

      I would like to suggest that for the APP, it should request location services, in that way we could develop webparts that use this feature and create great webparts that work on mobile devices with location enabled.

        • Change the Top Navigation tool-tip to show the Site Description

          Change the Top Navigation tool-tip to show the Site's description, rather than just repeating the site name.

          • Allow owa file attachment direct from your sharepoint sites

            Currently when using OWA (365 online outlook) if you click the attach button to add a file to an email your composing, you can only add files from your local PC, Group files or your OneDrive folder, there is no option to attach a file directly from a team site library. (Bizarre when you consider the data is in the same place as your OneDrive files?)
            We as a business store many of our files for use in a range of different libraries and currently have to attach them through the 'Computer' link and searching through an open file explorer…

            • Allow Contact Groups (from Exchange Public Folders) to SharePoint Contacts List

              SharePoint Contacts lists cannot accept contact groups, only individual contacts. This limitation prevents us from effectively migrating our Exchange Public Folder Contacts to SharePoint Online.

              • Create responsive calendars that work on desktop, tablet, and mobile

                Please update Calendars so that they are responsive and work regardless of the device you are using to view them. Currently they mostly work on desktop and maybe tablets, but mobile doesn't work very well at all.

                • Eliminate exta space so that users don't need to scroll

                  Create these pages to utilize the empty space to the right in order to eliminate the need to scroll. (Seems to have a lot of wasted space as currently set up.)

                  • Drag & drop from outlook email attachment to sharepoint folder

                    We do drag & drop to save outlook attachments, but this does not work when we do this with sharepoint folders.
                    It's important feature for our users to work in integrated sharepoint feature.

                    Pls fix this ASAP.

                      • Move documents between sites and between libraries

                        Pls, create a easier way to move a document from one library to another and from one site (or subsite) to another site.
                        Ex: Move from Onedrive library to a Site Library.

                        • I highly suggest showing the options by default for sending an invitation to new users that you give permission to.

                          Under site settings or a library settings permissions when adding a new user or group, the option is hidden and checked by default to send an invitation. I suggest showing that by default. It is too easy to send an email to a bunch of users when setting up a new site or app.

                          • If you change the name of the SharePoint group, the Web Part that set the [Target Audiences] is not displayed

                            English follows as below

                            SharePoint グループの名前を変更すると、[対象ユーザー] を設定した Web パーツが表示されなくなります。
                            SharePoint グループの名前を変更しても、そのまま表示されるようにしてください。

                            - 再現手順
                            1. 全体管理者ユーザーにてサイト コレクションを作成し、カスタム リストを作成します。
                            2. SharePoint グループ "Audience 01" を作成し、メンバーとしてユーザー A を追加します。
                            3. サイトのトップ ページを編集し、カスタム リストを Web パーツとして設置します。
                            4. 該当の Web パーツの [Web パーツの編集] 画面にて、[対象ユーザー] に "Audience 01"、"Company Administrator" を設定します。
                            5. ユーザー A にてサイトへアクセスし、Web パーツが表示されることを確認します。
                            6. 全体管理者ユーザーにて、[サイトの設定] - [ユーザーとグループ] - [Audience 01] と順にクリックし、[設定] - [グループ設定] から SharePoint グループの名前を "Audience 01_1" に変更します。

                            - 期待される結果
                            SharePoint グループのメンバーが Web パーツを表示できます。

                            - 実際の結果
                            SharePoint グループのメンバーが Web パーツを表示できません。

                            - 回避策
                            1. 全体管理者ユーザーにて、該当の Web パーツの [Web パーツの編集] 画面を開き、[対象ユーザー] 欄に "Audience 01_1" と変更後の SharePoint グループの名前が表示されることを確認します。
                            2. 特に設定を変更せず、そのまま保存します。
                            3. ユーザー A にてサイトへアクセスし、Web パーツが表示されることを確認します。

                              • Allow registering the external users in bulk via Powershell.

                                At the present, the users required to access the site from an invitation mail in order to register an external user by default. However, I feel a little inconvenient if the number of external users to invite is the large amount due to the process of admin's work is increased. Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented to enable using the menu to register external users in the organization's directory in bulk or registering the external users in bulk via Powershell.

                                Thank you for your continued support.

In addition, when the access from the devices for [SharePoint administration center] to [Access Control from the application which has not used Modern authentication] setting is "block", it cannot be accessed to the sites, and it can be connected to the site after the setting has changed to "allow". Sometimes, the setting has automatically changed from "allow" to "block".

                                  • Be aware of the time zone is displayed at UTC time when creating a workflow of SharePoint Designer.

                                    I am aware of the behavior that the creation/update time is displayed at UTC time when creating a workflow of SharePoint Designer even if I set the time zone to the local time (JST). In this situation, there is a possibility to make users confused so that I hope the feature will implement to set/display the localized time zone properly.

                                    • Enable displaying the graph by specifying the graph name when adding a new document via modern UI.

                                      The user is able to select the options for "Entire workbook", "Graph", "Table" and "Range" by clicking [Add Document] as a new experience (via modern UI). However, I am aware of that the specified graph is not displayed even if you entered a graph name. (a single graph can be displayed but not for Entire workbook) In addition, the users are allowed to switch the display by clicking the arrow mark on the right of the displayed graph name only.

                                      I hope the feature will be implemented enables displaying the graph by specifying the graph name via modern UI.

                                        Currently, if the user does not complete the operation for [publish], even after uploading the file to the Microsoft Stream, the admin cannot confirm the applicable video so far. The video has saved as a draft in [My content] > [My video] of the uploaded user's account only. Therefore, other users include the admin cannot search for the video by no means. In addition, even if the admin entered the URL of the video directly, the error message "This video is not available." is displayed.

                                        It is possible to access the video by admin by entering the URL in the…

                                        • be aware of the date column's default value showing a day in advance of specified date within a custom list with the Today function.

                                          At this stage, I enter “Today()” into the default value of custom list's date column and input the formula with Today function into [Column Validation]. Having used the default value as “Today()”, I am aware of the date displaying itself as one day in advance of the selected day (technically 17 hours) despite the fact that I have set the time zone as the JST. Besides, the formula of column validation turns out to be an error unless is completed with “Today()” although the correctly entered date is shown if the value contains of "Today's date" or "Today". Consequently, I…
