  1. Enable rendering of GIF animations in O365 Powerpoint when in iFrames

    GIFs fail to animate when embedding a O365 PowerPoint document in a barebones local site using suggested instructions in (File -> Share -> Embed).

    We verified they were supported by the O365 online viewer. What works in the online viewer should work when embedding on a webpage as well.

    Example site you can try yourself with your own embed link (be sure the PowerPoint file you are trying has GIFs which animate when viewed in O365):

    index.html:

    <html>
    <body>

    // Paste the embed code o365 gives you from selecting the menu option File\ Share \ Embed \ Embed Code
    

    </body> …

  2. "Show original message" button was removed and lets bring it back

    This functionality was the main reason we started using actionable items in emails. This allowed you to be able to switch back and fourth between the email behind the card and the card. Maybe it would be better to call it something like "See Accompanied Message".

  3. Power Automate transfer function

    ☆ It would be nice to add a setting that allows you to specify a transfer-prohibited address or domain.
    ☆ It is hoped that Power Automate can take over the transport rules of Exchange Online.

  4. Fix GeneralExceptions being thrown when multiple workbook are opened

    Sometimes when more than one workbook is opened, then a:
    GeneralException: There was an internal error while processing the request
    is thrown during various office-js operations.

    See https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js/issues/771 for details.

    I know there's a workaround:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/excel/force-excel-to-open-new-instance
    but it's impossible to force clients to use it.

  6. Create an event to know when content control is selected in word online.

    I am trying to create an event to know what content control is selected. Alex Jerabek told me that "onSelectionChanged" could be useful but it is still in BETA. So I would like to ask you implement these events and release them.
    Thank you very much for your time.

  8. afterSend Event for Outlook

    Office.js for Outlook is rolling out an OnSend event which is useful but, comes with limitations due to the potential of developers negatively affecting the email-send experience of OL users.

    We are looking for an "afterSend" event, that will trigger our code once an email has been sent and lands on the Sent Items folder. The event would trigger the code asynchronously and will allow for some post processing, without being able block or affect the email sending flow.

    One of the usecases touted for OnSend is "updating a 3rd party system" was one. IMHO, an afterSend event would be…

  9. Dialog window has to support add-ins for the New Mac UI

    Our clients are using new Outlook design 16.42 (20101102)
    Our Add-in uses functions: reply/replyAll/forward they open Dialog window(pop-up) and this window does not support add-ins.
    This is really critical issue, because our clients use pinned panel of add-ins to complete their workflow.

  13. Delete comments in the selected area

    Hello,

    In Excel Online, we can select a range of the cells, right-click on it, and delete the comments that are located in this area. Is it possible to reproduce the same behavior using excel js API? If we apply context.workbook.comments.getItemByCell to a cell that has no comments, an error occurs. If we try to add a comment to a cell that already has a comment, an error occurs too.

    Could you add a method that allows us to delete comments in the range? Something like the getItemByCellOrNullObject method for handling comments or similar method to help avoid these inconveniences…

  14. Remove Add-in 'Update' message. It causes friction and support efforts for our customers!

    Whenever we submit a 'manifest' update of our products, customers get an 'Update' message instead of getting the Add-in loaded. Considering that we publish many updates that do not require a 'Manifest' change and hence do not trigger an 'Update' button, we find this technical driven 'Update' button of little to no use at all. Especially in our scenario, where we deliver Add-ins to thousands of users across our many customers. The individual user did not purchase nor deploy the Add-in, and hence has difficulties in comprehending the reason and origin of this 'Update' button/message. We try to limit the…

  15. Office Add-ins should run in Chromium-based Edge, not EdgeHTML

    At the moment addins run in EdgeHTML

    Recently Chromium-based Edge has been released which is much faster than EdgeHTML

    Add-ins should run in new, Chromium-based Edge.

    Will it be "just done" at the next Windows update?

    Similar to previous suggestion:

  17. JavaScript API to group a Range of text

    I want to group a text range in MS Word. On MS Word, it is possible to use the Group option under Developer Tab. It would be great if an MS Word API is available to do so.
    The idea was posted here originally with pictures as well - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/62446816/group-text-range-in-ms-word-with-javascript-api.

  18. CreateDocument OfficeJS API support in Word Online with 3rd-party WOPI hosts

    CreateDocument API is not working in Word for web when using 3rd-party WOPI Hosts.
    This turned out to be supported only by OneDrive & SharePoint. The API works as expected in desktop version.

    For reference: https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js/issues/1340

    Thank you in advance,

  19. Allow write-able access to function RPN interpratation

    Whenever there are complex formulas it requires major effort for the developer introducing proper/robust parser whenever these formulas should be processed correctly without breaking the report.

    Giving developers access to RPN interpratation of the formulas would significantly help to support following use-cases:


    1. Easier and robust implementation of custom UI/UX for Function wizard, i.e. UI can support editing of very complex formulas without breaking the report

    2. Easier migration/update of existing custom functions in complex scenarios to support new features, one sample is company having addin for many years and want to migrate the formulas to Dynamic Arrays without throwing burden on…
