I suggest you ...

GUID as a primary key..

allow the use of an auto generated GUID ID instead of only int..

    Thank you for your suggestion on improving LightSwitch. However, Visual Studio 2015 is the last release of Visual Studio that includes the LightSwitch tooling and we recommend users not begin new application development with LightSwitch. That said, we will continue to support users with existing LightSwitch applications, including critical bug fixes and security issues as per the Microsoft Support Lifecycle. Please see the blog post for more information: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/lightswitch/2016/10/14/lightswitch-update/

        Partially connected applications need to be supported in Visual Studio!

        Microsoft killed the sync framework in 2010 and has left developers with zero tooling to make local database cache apps.

        The SQL azure data sync has been in CTP for over 3 years and that looks like it was abandoned too.

        I tried to make a custom odata solution in light switch but they did not support guid pk's.

        I am disappointed Microsoft did not address this in all this time, please let the developers decide whats best for them rather than you deciding for us
