  1. App Authentication to retrieve conversation messages for unified groups

    We need the App Authentication model to be able to retrieve conversations for unified groups. This isn't a user specific call so I'm unsure why it's not currently possible?

      • 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.

        • Add connector using PowerShell

          We would like to be able to add / remove connectors like the WebHook connector to Groups using Powershell.
          At the moment it seems only possible to enable/disable connectors.

            • Be able to fetch mails by "conversations" in folders in one request

              Right now you cannot achieve "conversations" view in a mail folder using REST API with one request.

              A workaround can be found here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/41161515/best-way-to-achieve-conversation-view-for-mail-folder-using-outlook-rest-api

              but it is quite slow and not very efficient. Conversations view is the primary view of many mail client but is not achivable (easily) with REST API

              • Emit event for document that is about to be saved, or email that is about to be sent

                there are numerous regulatory scenarios where information needs to be captured as part of a save or send event.

                This might be mandatory information as part of regulatory compliance, or information that the enterprise requires prior saving a document (e.g. management information of some sort).

                The most natural place to capture this is at the time of either a document being saved, or an email being sent (once the user has entered their content and therefore understands what metadata is appropriate).

                If an event could be bound to it would introduce some interesting use cases within the larger business environment.

                  • More advanced comments&reviews system in O365 Store

                    Currently Office365 Store allows anonymous comments on the product site, which could destroy opinion about each app by haters, trolls and competitors. It makes O365 Store unreliable platform for selling software. Each comment should have mandatory first name, last name, organization name, when app as used etc. You can check Capterra (capterra.com) or GetApp (getapp.com) to see how the comment system should look like.

                    • Allow retrieval of Office 365 users including their birthday using Microsoft Graph API

                      Using the Microsoft Graph API, I want to create a list of all Office 365 users's birtdays, but I cannot get the list of users including the related birthday property at the moment.

                      To set up this list I need the following properties exposed via the Graph API:
                      -id
                      -displayName
                      -userPrincipalName
                      -birthday

                      I want to be able to retrieve users using graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/Users/?$select=id,displayName,userPrincipalName,birthday

                      At the moment executing this results in an InternalServerError with message "This operation is not yet supported.".

                      Requesting the birthday of the current user works already using graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/Me/?$select=id,displayName,userPrincipalName,birthday

                      Please add support for requesting the birthday for a list…

                      • Connect the 'Limit availability to specific users' to a dynamic distribution group

                        Currently the only option to limit the availability for an Outlook Add-in I found is this: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj943757(v=exchg.150).aspx
                        But this PS takes actually a copy of the users in the distribution list. When people leave or enter a company and get included in the distribution list then they don't get the Add-In and the script must be executed again.

                        Please extend this or provide another easier (no lets run a script every day) way to limit the availability to specific users.

                        Thanks,

                        • Websites on Outlook.com Contacts REST API are inconsistent/bugged

                          The REST API for Outlook.com contacts features a business website field, yet the web GUI for contacts only has a personal website field.

                          I cannot find information on the latter in the API specification, and therefore cannot set it through the API, yet the company website can be set, but does not show up or is available on the web GUI.

                          Please fix up both endpoints (API and web GUI) to support both fields, or decide on one of the two and stick with it.

                            This API should receive as optional parameter the current event ICalUId to avoid getting incorrect busy results when is used to change the schedule of an existing event.

                            • accountEnabled property

                              GET user doesn't return this property by default, unless the query param `$select` is provided in the URL.

                              accountEnabled is equivalent to a user's status which is the foremost thing somebody wants to know. Please add this property to be returned by default, without having to use query parameters.

                                • Customization of Add-in Docking location

                                  Is there a way to specify, docking the task pane add-in in the manifest or any other manner. Default is always right, but few users need that In left hand side.

                                  If not please suggest any possible solution

                                  • Enable actions on identityRiskEvent objects in Graph API

                                    Currently identityRiskEvent objects can be listed and read, but there are no write actions available, though closing events through "Resolve", "Mark as false positive", "Ignore" and "Dismiss all events" are available through the Azure AD Portal.

                                    Where are the corresponding API methods and scope, so that we may delegate and/or automate these?

                                    • Need to have an onClose event for the task pane or content pane add-in

                                      There should be an onClose event I can ask the user to save settings, or ask them if they are sure, and then prevent the close if necessary. If the add-ins are going to be useful business apps, the user experience of saving before closing is extremely important.

                                      • 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>

                                        • Ability to determine Current Edit/View only Mode in Excel Online (High Priority)

                                          This is less an idea than a serious bug - it applies mainly to Excel Online.

                                          I am writing a Taskpane add-in for Excel using Javascript and the OfficeJS API. While on the Excel Online platform, I am trying to figure out how to tell what mode the workbook document is in (i.e. view-only or editing). I ran in to this because when I first open an Excel spreadsheet in the online browser, it is in read/view-only mode:

                                          If you try and edit a worksheet "manually" by clicking on a cell and typing, it won't let you (the appropriate behavior).…
