  1. Allow PowerShell ClientID to consume Office 365 Usage Reports

    It would be great if we could access the Office 365 Usage Report without creating an Azure App like explained here : https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/dawiese/2017/04/15/get-office365-usage-reports-from-the-microsoft-graph-using-windows-powershell/

    Indeed, it's kind of a showstopper for consultants who want to assess a client's Office 365 tenant.

    There is a PowerShell ClientID that is already available to consume other GraphAPI feature like this :
    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/paulomarques/2016/03/21/working-with-azure-active-directory-graph-api-from-powershell/

    But if we use it, it fails with:
    Invoke-RestMethod : {
    "error": {
    "code": "InvalidAuthenticationToken",
    "message": "Access token validation failure.",
    "innerError": {
    "request-id": "82702d75-723c-4725-be89-b0bc3a1e95ee",
    "date": "2017-04-19T13:10:27"
    }
    }
    }

    • Add array formula support to the Excel Office Add-In API

      We would like to have array formula support available in the office.js API. We use these heavily in our VSTO Excel Add-in in combination with user defined functions to display function output in multiple cells. Having this feature available would allow us to build the Excel Office Add-in we would like to build.

      For other forum browsers, here is an example of an array formula.
      https://www.ablebits.com/office-addins-blog/2015/02/25/array-formulas-functions-excel/#array-formula-intro

      Please note that while Binding.setDataAsync() in the office.js API supports adding formulas to a range of cells, you cannot see or edit the formula after adding.

      • Provide Outlook REST API quota management

        We are hitting rate limits with the Outlook REST API and there is no way to see what they are, no way to request an increase, and this appears to be the only support channel available.

          • support makeEwsRequestAsync for delegated agendas

            If you open the add-in as a delegated, you can create appointments(compose) in the agenda, you can save the item(appointment) to retreive a itemId but after that you can't create an EWSRequest. If you do so you get the following message.

            <m:GetItemResponseMessage ResponseClass="Error">
            <m:MessageText>Office extension have no permissions to access any other mailboxes then the mailbox provided in the user context.</m:MessageText>

            • Dont allow COM/VSTO outlook plugins to disable add-ins

              As a user and developer of outlook 2016 add-ins I have currently run into an issue for which there is no resolution.

              COM/VSTO addins appear to have the ability to disable add-ins developed using the new add-in architecture.

              See issue reported here to the developers of the 'FindTime' add-in.

              https://findtime.uservoice.com/forums/320121-bugs-let-s-squash-them/suggestions/11633973-findtime-greyed-out-when-creating-new-mail-in-outl

              A customer of ours recently reported this issue with the brand new plugin we just developed, where our add-in was 'greyed' out in the 'Compose' view. The root cause was because the user had the 'Salesforce for Outlook' COM plugin installed which was disabling all other add-ins.

              It is of…

              • Worksheet password protection

                We are also concerned about the issue mentioned on this post:

                http://stackoverflow.com/questions/38847193/excel-office-add-in-api-worksheet-protection-password

                Currently we are able to protect and unprotect a worksheet. What we need is an API for password protection of worksheets which the end user would not know as this is will make the worksheets on OneDrive more secure for use.

                • App Authentication to retrieve conversation messages for unified groups

                  We need the App Authentication model to be able to retrieve conversations for unified groups. This isn't a user specific call so I'm unsure why it's not currently possible?

                  • Implementet full OData v4 query consistently across all graph endpoints

                    Currently the documentation says (as of 20th of April) that MS Graph query parameters are compatible with OData v4 queries.
                    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/overview/query_parameters

                    This is not completely orthogonal as there are cases where some operations work and other cases where they don't.
                    I've used the Graph Explorer to find out what works and what doesn't so far, but it isn't the ideal way.

                    Filter operations Contains/Concat/Trim/ToUpper/ToLower are not supported in /v1.0/users but some are supported in /v1.0/me/events.
                    Furthermore it seems string comparisons are case insensitive, rendering ToUpper and ToLower meaningless. Using case sensitivity and allowing the use of ToUpper/ToLower would allow the…

We would really like the option to be able to insert add-ins to the iPad through the centralized deployment.

                        • Allow Microsoft Graph API to return mail headers

                          I'd like to be able to access the mail headers for a given message in microsoft graph - part of this is because that in certain circumstances that ConversationID of a message can be incorrect, and join together separate and unrelated conversations with the same subject.

                          Having access to In-Reply-To and References headers would allow us to accurately map the threads to messages within our system without having to rely on the erroneous data returned by ConversationID.

                                At the moment it seems only possible to enable/disable connectors.

                                    • Allow retrieval of Office 365 users including their birthday using Microsoft Graph API

                                      Using the Microsoft Graph API, I want to create a list of all Office 365 users's birtdays, but I cannot get the list of users including the related birthday property at the moment.

                                      To set up this list I need the following properties exposed via the Graph API:
                                      -id
                                      -displayName
                                      -userPrincipalName
                                      -birthday

                                      I want to be able to retrieve users using graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/Users/?$select=id,displayName,userPrincipalName,birthday

                                      At the moment executing this results in an InternalServerError with message "This operation is not yet supported.".

                                      Requesting the birthday of the current user works already using graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/Me/?$select=id,displayName,userPrincipalName,birthday

                                      Please add support for requesting the birthday for a list…

                                      • Add 'select' and 'filter' to webhook resource subscriptions to get more accurate notifications

                                        Currently, only two options exist : updated or changed.

                                        It would be great to be able to be more specific to get only the targetted notifications, adding filters.

                                        Example : https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/messages?$select=isRead&$filter=from/emailAddress/address eq 'jon@contoso.com'

                                        --> Get a notification only when the 'isRead' field evolves for messages sent by Jon.
