    • Add Timing-Allow-Origin: * to MS Graph response headers

      To allow consumers of Graph APIs to use the Resource Timing web browser API to get detailed request timing information when making cross-origin calls to MS Graph, the Timing-Allow-Origin header should be included in responses from MS Graph with a value of *.

        • Add ContextMenu Extension Point to modern Outlook Add-ins

          It would be useful to allow Outlook Add-ins to have context menu extension points to allow for more granular action controls (e.g. Right-clicking THIS specific email allows me to act on it with THIS add-in)

          It seems that the context menu isn't off limit to all Office programs, such as Word or Excel, but there is not any support for Outlook.

          • Allow MS Graph API /messages/delta to include singleValueExtendedProperties

            I'm incrementally pulling messages via the /delta query in MS Graph API, v1.0. I'd like to pull a singleValueExtendedProperty in the same way I can for normally listing messages:

            https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/mailFolders/Inbox/messages/delta?$expand=singleValueExtendedProperties($filter=id eq 'String 0x007D')

            Unfortunately this is currently not supported. I get an error that says:
            "Value cannot be null.\r\nParameter name: type"

            I know I can follow up with multiples GETs to pull the desired extended properties, but I'd rather avoid spawning several requests if I can get away with one.

            Please see conversation here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46603485/how-do-i-get-singlevalueextendedproperties-for-ms-graph-v1-0-delta-queries

            • Add delta query support for Group Conversations/Threads/Posts

              There is currently no delta query support for Group Conversations/Threads/Posts. The only way to track changes in Office 365 Group Conversations via the Graph API, is to fetch all the Posts that has ever been sent. This does not scale well. Therefore, it would be nice if it was possible to track changes in Posts using the delta query functionality which is available for messages.

              • Allow office.js Outlook add-ins to open a new compose email form

                Our use case is to display email addresses for contacts in a user's CRM (other colleagues of the sender, for example), and those addresses be hyperlinks to open a new email in the active Outlook with the "TO:" field pre-populated with that address.

                • Add footnote support to the javascript API

                  Footnotes are very heavily used in many professional types of documents. (Specifically legal documents). Currently Footnotes are not exposed in any way via the word api which is a sizable gap in the functionality.

                    Allow whitelisting of Office Add-Ins in the store for enterprise customers for their end-users. At the moment they only can block access to the store and use 'central deployment'.

                    • Make it possible to fetching a users favourite groups

                      It is possible to mark a group as favourite using the group_addfavorite API but I can't seem to retrieve that info anywhere.

                      I think it is more important being able to read favourites than adding if I can't read since you can mark as favourite in browser.

                      • Get all members of a group including nested group members

                        Currently in Microsoft Graph, the groups/{id}/members ONLY returns the DIRECT members of the specified group. This is a request for an API that would return all members including nested group members (also known as transitive down closure).

                        • 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"
                          }

                          • Allow Application-Level or Document-Level Office Addins

                            In VSTO, we can create Application-Level or Document-Level documents. In Office-JS, It seems that at the moment it is a mixture of application level for the ribbon/pane and workbook level for the JS.
                            This separation is important so developers can sell, for instance, a specific workbook for its own and only own ribbons and panes, or a generic applciation level tool.
                            A consequence of this request is that it should be possible to attach an office addin (initialization) to a specific document.

                            • Add the ability to whitelist trusted scripts on Mac

                              With Outlook 2016 for Mac, there are exposed APIs that are accessible via AppleScript, ObjC, or JavaScript. These APIs are great for automation on a Mac! Unfortunately, from an enterprise/administrative standpoint, these are not feasible solutions for deployment.

                              With the introduction of WordMail for the compose editor in Outlook 2016 for Mac (15.22), a script warning was introduced, stating: "A script is attempting to send a message. Some scripts can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer, so it's important to verify that the script was created by a trustworthy source. Do you want to send the message?"

                              • Office Add-ins should run in Edge, not IE11

                                At the moment Word runs Add-ins in IE11

                                IE11 doesnt support ES2016, and is therefore much harder to develop for than all of the other newer browsers (Safari, Chrome, Edge).

                                Word should run Add-ins in Edge

                                • Remove the size limitation of content-pane add-in's in Excel

                                  In Excel desktop there is a limitation to the width a content pane can be resized when adjusting with the mouse. It appears to be approx 1000px. However, if the columns underneath the content pane are resized, the pane follows this adjustment and will become wider than the 1000px limitation imposed by mouse resize. However, if the content pane is then again resized with the mouse the width limitation kicks in again and the pane width snaps back.

                                  In PowerPoint there is no such limitation to the width of a content pane Add-In. It would be helpful, and consistent, to…

                                  • Enable a view to see all tasks for each channel on one page in planner

                                    Currently if I have more than 1 channel within a team and have a planner page within each channel with tasks I can only see one channel at a time in planner thus only seeing the tasks assigned for that 1 channel. I would like to be able to see all the tasks for a team in one space so that I can see how many different tasks each member of my team has across channels etc.

                                    • Raise or remove the limit on number of requests allowed in a batch

                                      A limit of 5 is insufficient for my batching needs. Please remove this limitation entirely or raise it to a reasonable number (100+).

                                        • Allow small sized ribbon icons

                                          Currently it is possible to add only large sized icons in Office Addins ribbon.
                                          It would be great to have smaller icon sized icons.
