  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"
    }
    }
    }

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • Fill Users DisplayName in /planner/Tasks

              If you are requesting the Graph-explorer with the following URL:
              https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/planner/tasks

              The following result is given:
              {
              "@odata.context": "https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/$metadata#Collection(microsoft.graph.plannerTask)",
              "@odata.count": 1,
              "value": [
              {
              "@odata.etag": "W/\"JzEtVGFzayAgQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBASCc=\"",
              "createdBy": {
              "user": {
              "displayName": null,
              "id": "fc03bc43-b0ed-4b7d-bc59-8488a77420f4"
              }
              },
              "planId": "RVBp6oJJt0K5f6Lq42zBK2UAA-Rs",
              "bucketId": "1m6FwcAAZ0eW5J1Abe7ndWUAJ1ca",
              ........

              The problem is, that the "displayName" in the User Object in createdBy or completedBy is always null.

              Please fill the displayName Property of the User Objects.

              Thanks

                    • 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.

                      • Create REST end point for set and get publishing image fields

                        Currently we cannot set or get publishing image fields using rest. We can get the publishing image fields using REST if you specify /FieldValuesAsText or /FieldValuesAsHtml but we can't get it the way we get all the other properties.

                        We also cannot use REST to set this property as it throws and error and states that this field does not exist.

                        This feature prevents use from bulk uploading list items using REST or PNP-sp-js

                        • Mailto URLs not working in Promoted Links

                          Until about 2 weeks ago, we were able to use Mailto: URLs in our SharePoint Online Promoted Links. Now they don't work. When in the list view, the links works fine when clicked on, when in the tile view, nothing happens when you click on the link.
                          When looking at the source code, the "click action=" is empty.
                          We have used this extensively for Contact Us pages. Is it a bug, or does SharePoint Online not longer support Mailto: from the Promoted Links Tiles view?

                              Hello,

                                • 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.

                                  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…

                                  • Microsoft Excel Professional 2013 DOESN'T always SORT correctly

                                    An add-in is not necessary.

                                    What IS NECESSARY is for the Excel Developers to FIX Excel 2013 Professional so that it sorts correctly.

                                    I've reported previously that when sorting colums, Excel does no sort items correctly:

                                    Take for example, :

                                      • Provide event notification when field changes

                                        Do you plan on adding notifications when fields changes in Outlook?

                                        Useful examples could be when:

                                        An attachment gets added or removed
                                        Email body changes
                                        Email subject changes
                                        Recipients gets added or removed
