  1. 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?

    • Special Cells method

      In Excel API, I can't choose cells based if they have formulas or values.

      In VBA, I can do that by using Range.SpecialCells method. Also, I can specify if I want to get only text values, numbers, errors and/or booleans.

      Please, support this for Excel JavaScript API, because currently, I'm looping all the worksheet's used range rectangle to get the values, and my loops spend a lot of time skipping blank cells.

      • Support $count for group members and owners

        Currently $count is not supported on `directoryObjects` like users and groups. Although it would be great to know how much members / owners are in a group. The only way right now is via querying the members or owners endpoint of the group and checking the array length. Depending on the number of members, this could lead to multiple calls.

        It would be great that the `$count` parameter would be supported so that only one call is required.

        • Improved native reference control while using Bindings.addFromPromptAsync

          Currently when we use Bindings.addFromPromptAsync to use it as a cell reference picker which supports ANCHORING we face two issues:

          1) There is NO way how to get the range address directly (you have to find the Binding from the ID and there you can call binding.getRange() method!).

          2) The returned address from the binding.getRange() (as shown above) IGNORES the anchors used in the native dialog!

          My suggestion is to add a way to the Bindings.addFromPromptAsync to return the cell address really shown in the native dialog (i.e. it would support anchors like $A1, A$1, $A$1)! It could be as…

          • Add support to Groups and Photos APIs to Hybrid Deployments

            The current documentation states that "[o]nly v1.0 of the Mail, Calendar and Contacts API are available for mailboxes in hybrid deployments".

            In order to create real-world solutions using Graph API in Hybrid deployments, the Groups and Photos support (at the very minimum) would be of great benefit. This would enable creation of solutions that drive consumption of other workloads than pure email (such as SharePoint, Yammer, Teams, PowerBI, Stream etc).

            • Mail merge feature in PPT

              My project does a lot of certificate for trainings. We designed a certificate template in PPT and we were unable to use MS word to design the template. I would like to suggest to have an add-in for a mail merge feature in PPT where you can merge information from Word or Excel. This would be really AWESOME!!

              • Mac, PowerPoint: Add WindowSelectionChange event for changing slide selection in slide thumbnail pane

                Preferably, the PowerPoint programming API for Mac should behave the same as PowerPoint for Windows.

                In PowerPoint for Windows, clicking into the thumbnail pane generates WindowSelectionChange events.

                However, in PowerPoint for Mac (tested: Office 2016 Insider Slow Version 16.8 (Build 171210) and also Insider Fast, clicking into the thumbnail pane DOES NOT generate WindowSelectionChange events. Changing the selected slide in the thumbnail pane does NOT generate WindowSelectionChange events either.

                (Note that in Mac Office v16, the WindowSelectionChange event DOES fire for other selection changes, which was a new addtion to v16. It's just that it is missing for the selection…

                  We want to set a different signature in the mail body from the outlook add-in. Right now altering the whole html of the mail body makes this quite impossible, especially because it is different on all different platforms. (win, mac, online different browsers)

                  • consistent retry-after information accross different workloads

                    Currently OneDrive, Outlook, and AAD Workloads under the Graph send a retry-after header on 429 and/or 503.
                    However the documentation doesn't say which workloads support it https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/concepts/throttling and the other workloads don't support it.
                    It'd make it easier if that was supported across the board to have a single way to handle those kind of issues.
                    Same remark for the rate-limit headers

                      • findRooms by name or email address

                        Using the Microsoft Graph API, I would like to find rooms by either name or email address, such as:

                        https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/findRooms?$filter=startswith(mail,'cal_')

                        or

                        https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/findRooms?$filter=startswith(name,'Building 1')

                        Our rooms are not in RoomLists, and there are well over 100 rooms.

                        Could you please expand the findRooms query parameters to include email and/or name?

                        • Enable Add-ins while creating a meeting in office 365 group calendar in outlook 2016

                          It should be possible to use Add-in while creating meetings in group calendar. This works in Outlook Web but not in native.

                          Our applications helps to create structured agenda for a meeting but since the add-in is disabled while creating meeting in group calendar, we cant use the app in group calendar using Outlook 2016 native.

                          Currently in Outlook native Add-ins are not supported in shared mailboxes this is mentioned in details in the below Stack Overflow question.

                          • Add Pagination to the findRooms API, to get past the limit of 100 rooms

                            The /findRooms API states: "You can get up to the first 100 rooms in the tenant". Could you please add standard Pagination, to get past this limit?

                            I tried /findRooms?$top=1000&$count=true but I am not able to make these query parameters work. In addition, I now understand that the API doesn't currently support things like $top or $skip.

                              • Add Microsoft Word endpoints to the Microsoft Graph API

                                Microsoft Graph needs to allow access to Microsoft Word Documents by exposed API endpoints.

                                Basically, all the analogous functionality present in the excel endpoints should also be exposed for the respective similar functions that Microsoft word has.

                                Why can we not, create, edit, modify, add tables, etc, etc, in Microsoft Word through Microsoft Graph?

                                • Retrieve the extended resource properties like capacity through Graph API (findrooms)

                                  As a user , when I search for a meeting room , we have a requirement to filter the meeting rooms based on the resource availability ( like room capacity , display availibility etc.) . Can we have a feature to include `msExchResourceCapacity`, `msExchResourceDisplay` or `msExchResourceMetaData` in the search criteria ?

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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
