  1. Collapsible vba procedures

    By default each procedure should only have the first procedure line (header) visible with an expand button to show all lines within the procedure. Currently a lot of time is spend scrolling through code.

    I would also like to see the two drop downs for general and declarations changed to a tree view on the left so that I can more easily navigate procedures and methods.

    • Wildcard search and MatchWholeWord search don't work wtih tracked deletions

      At present, if there are tracked deletions within a word, that word will not be found by search if either MatchWholeWord or Wildcards are turned on. This is a bug in search, but it is especially crucial to fix for add-ins.

      • Support Azure Conditional Access for Microsoft Graph

        A lot of Microsoft products does not work as expected due to the fact the Microsoft Graph does not support Azure Conditional Access. Among the applications I can mention is Microsoft Teams, ToDo, etc. that all rely on the Microsoft Graph and breaks to to limited support or no support for Azure Conditional Access.

        Teams:

        • Similar API response structure for Business and Personal accounts

          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/developer/rest-api/api/drive_recent - this endpoint returns different set of fields for personal and business accounts. I could understand if it only adds extra fields for business account, but no - field "fileSystemInfo.lastAccessedDateTime" is missing. And the whole structure looks different. Suggestion - add missing fields for business account

          • PowerPoint API

            Build out the specific host PowerPoint API with near complete parity to the control that was available in VSTO add-ins for PowerPoint. We have an add-in we want to build out in the new Web Add-in platform, but can't due to the extremely limited capabilities of the current Office.js API. You've had years to work on it, at least be more forth coming with where things are in development.

            • Improve VBA IDE: Highlight start and end of Blocks e.g. If/End If, With/End With, Do/Loop etc

              It would be great if the VBA IDE would highlight...

              (a) The start and of Blocks such as If/End If. So if you highlighted the "If" the matching "End If" would also be highlighted. This would be great for both coding but also auditing inherited code.

              (b) Highlight incomplete Blocks: so if you start "If" it's red until such time the closing "End If" is added

              • Improve VBA IDE (MS Access): better integration with SQL Server for query development in Access Front End

                Access can link to SQL Server tables but it would great if it had the same intellisense that SQL Server has for writing SQL Statements directly into the VBA IDE. So if you referred to a linked (or local) table in your VBA code then typed the period, intellisense would show the available fields.

                • Conservation of IT Documents (Electronic bill) compliant italian legislation

                  Italian laws indicate specifics procedures to store electronics bills and documents for all enterprises and small business, so I think it is very usefull to have this functionality on O365.

                    • Dynamic Admin Consent

                      Currently the Admin consent flow is bound to the permissions that are statically pre-defined in the Azure App registration. This causes some challenges for App developers, for instance:
                      • If we would start to highlight education data for education tenants, then we need to add an Education.Read permission (or something similar) to this registration. This will not be applicable to non-education tenants, but admins of those tenants would still need to grant our App permission to it, which doesn’t make sense.
                      • Certain features in our App can be deactivated on a tenant-basis, such as access to OneDrive. An Admin…

                      • Extensions Permission

                        This affects all resources that support extensions but let’s take the User resource as an example:

                        Extending the User resource currently requires an entire User Profile read/write consent (User.ReadWrite).
                        We only want to read and write additional data that we provide to the User resource and not modify the entire resource. Users might be hesitant about consenting to Apps that could potentially corrupt their entire user profile.

                              Scenario: a task pane add-in displays a list of objects that represent content that can be added to a slide as a content add-in instances.
                              Allowing the instantiation of a content add-in programmatically would facilitate creation of great user experiences.

                                  • Change Sites.Read.All Permission Display String

                                    Access to SharePoint data in the Graph currently requires consent to read or write to the entire SharePoint Instance. This is presented to the user as: ‘Read items in all site collections’.
                                    Our prospects are hesitant to grant this permission as it appears like we can read all their data in SharePoint, regardless of access control settings in SharePoint.

                                    We suggest to change the display string from ‘Read items in all site collections’ to something like ‘Read all site collection items that user can access’.
                                    It makes it clearer at a glance that it’s limitied to user read rights and…

                                    • Support HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled property on Groups

                                      If want to hide o365 Group using HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled property from Outlook and discovery, the Graph still returns all "hided" Groups. Could you at least return that property with Groups data so we can hide certain Groups withing our apps?

                                      • No direct support to lock document programmatically

                                        Currently we are adding a Content Control to the entire body and setting its cannot Edit property to true.

                                        This works fine in Desktop and Mac, but fails in case of Word online and iPad when we have nested Content Controls.
