  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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

              • 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

                • Provide snapshot image of Planner plan status

                  Similar to how the Graph API allows a screenshot of a chart in Excel to be returned, I would like it to return a screenshot of a plan status chart from Planner.

                  • Getting and setting document properties is not working in Office Online

                    Hello,

                    I am working on the Office Add-in for Word using the Office JavaScript API. Using Word in Office Online and the latest Word 2016 I could get and set document properties. This all worked but it has now stopped working in Office Online. I get the error when I try to use context.document.properties or context.document.properties.customProperties:

                    "Sorry, this function isn’t available. Perform a runtime check on the Office add-in to find out whether the feature is supported by the host."

                    I perform the check "Office.context.requirements.isSetSupported('WordApi', 1.3)" to ensure that the version 1.3 of the API is loaded and supported and…

                      • 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.

                        https://findtime.uservoice.com/forums/320121-bugs-let-s-squash-them/suggestions/11633973-findtime-greyed-out-when-creating-new-mail-in-outl

                        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…

                            • Manage Microsoft Graph Schema Extensions in Azure Portal

                              Considering how rare it is to manage Schema Extensions, it would be best to be able to manage these from Azure Portal and/or in the App Registration pages.

                              Right now I have a Client Credentials application and to manage Schema Extensions I would have to build a second application just to manage these as I would need to support authorisation with delegated permissions for admin consent. Even the Graph Explorer does not let me manage Schema Extensions right now.

                              Per http://stackoverflow.com/questions/43889984/microsoft-graph-registering-a-schema-extension

                              • Worksheet password protection

                                We are also concerned about the issue mentioned on this post:

                                http://stackoverflow.com/questions/38847193/excel-office-add-in-api-worksheet-protection-password

                                Currently we are able to protect and unprotect a worksheet. What we need is an API for password protection of worksheets which the end user would not know as this is will make the worksheets on OneDrive more secure for use.

                                • support makeEwsRequestAsync for delegated agendas

                                  If you open the add-in as a delegated, you can create appointments(compose) in the agenda, you can save the item(appointment) to retreive a itemId but after that you can't create an EWSRequest. If you do so you get the following message.

                                  <m:GetItemResponseMessage ResponseClass="Error">
                                  <m:MessageText>Office extension have no permissions to access any other mailboxes then the mailbox provided in the user context.</m:MessageText>
                                  <m:ResponseCode>ErrorAccessDenied</m:ResponseCode>
                                  <m:DescriptiveLinkKey>0</m:DescriptiveLinkKey>
                                  <m:Items/>
                                  </m:GetItemResponseMessage>

                                  • Trigger Presentation Mode in PowerPoint

                                    Add functionality to trigger the presentation from within a taskpane add-in.
                                    Add the following function to the library: Document.setActiveViewAsync
                                    Having F5 reload the add-in is rather useless.

                                    • Implementet full OData v4 query consistently across all graph endpoints

                                      Currently the documentation says (as of 20th of April) that MS Graph query parameters are compatible with OData v4 queries.
                                      https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/overview/query_parameters

                                      This is not completely orthogonal as there are cases where some operations work and other cases where they don't.
                                      I've used the Graph Explorer to find out what works and what doesn't so far, but it isn't the ideal way.

                                      Filter operations Contains/Concat/Trim/ToUpper/ToLower are not supported in /v1.0/users but some are supported in /v1.0/me/events.
                                      Furthermore it seems string comparisons are case insensitive, rendering ToUpper and ToLower meaningless. Using case sensitivity and allowing the use of ToUpper/ToLower would allow the…

                                      • 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?

                                        • Avoid closing Word Online browser tab, while saving is not finished

                                          It would be great to avoid tab to be closed by user when saving of the "office-online document" is not finished.
                                          For example by prompting a "confirm" message "Your document is not allready saved, do you really want to close this tab without saving last modifications ?"
