  1. Task Management API

    While reviewing the O365 Preview API I was wondering what about Task-Management. Currently there are two systems for task management (Exchange and SharePoint). Would be great to see a roadmap for TaskManagement in the O365 Story and of course get an API to easily connect Apps to consume tasks. (No CSOM required just give us REST :D)

    • Need to programmatically provision new Office 365 (trial) tenants

      When offering a solution for Office 365 I need to automatically provision a new Office 365 tenant (30-day trial) for the potential customer to test my software in combination with a real Office 365 tenant. This especially is important when my software is available in the Office Store and n people open a trial and want to test it. Right now, Office 365 trial tenant must be created manually, which is not feasible for many testers who want to evaluate our solution in combination with the Office 365 experience. Would need an API (or PowerShell) for creating a new O365…

      • Introduce a central user profile service for Exchange, SharePoint, and Yammer

        Harmonize and synchronize the information displayed in the Exchange Contact, the SharePoint Profile and Yammer Profile and provide a unified interface to edit them. They essentially store similar information.

        The profiles are a great tool to increase the visiblity of employees and their roles and ease communication, but only if they are filled out. How should I explain to my users that they need to do this three times and that each profile contains different information?

        After this has been achieved the next step in my eyes would be to allow the addition of custom fields as well and the…

        • Expose the entire email MIME stream (whole mail ContentBytes) in Outlook Mail REST API

          Sending REST request to Outlook Mail endpoint for messages brings back email message object with properties such as: Subject, From, To, Body but it doesn't expose the MIME stream for the whole email. Actually this is required to save the entire email maybe as eml file locally or somewhere.
          EWS exposes this option but unfortunately is hard limited to 1MB response (for JavaScript APIs).

          hope this option will be available soon within the REST response

          Thank you,

            • Expose extensionattributes in Azure AD with the Office 365 Graph API

              A lot of customers use extensionattributes in their on-premises active directory. These can be synced with AzureAD Connect. But you can only find them with PowerShell in their mailbox. When a user does not have an mailbox these attributes are not exposed on any other way.

              Please make these extension attributes available over the Office 365 Rest API so we can use them in our applications without using other field which are not created for that purpose.

              • 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"
                }
                }
                }

                • 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 Category Color to Microsoft Graph API Event.Categories collection

                    The Calendar Event object contains a simple collection of category names called categories. Enhance the Event object by either:
                    1. Add a property to the Event object called CategoryColor, a simple collection of the colors (hex or decimal value) for each category's color. Making the colors a separate property of the event object should make this backwards compatible.

                    OR

                    2. The categories collection becomes a collection of category objects. The category object has two properties called Name and Color. Name is a string and Color can be the name of the color of the hexadecimal value of the color. This…

                    • Allow to set the background color of your app in the O365 app launcher

                      Currently the color is grey by default and will most likely not go well with all types of icons SaaS apps will come in. Being able to define the own color would allow a SaaS app vendor to also use that color for identification purposes etc.

                      • Allow updating any users Photo with User.ReadWrite.All scope

                        Currently even if you have the User.ReadWrite.All you cant update another users photo via:

                        PUT /beta/users/{User ID}/photo/$value

                        This would be VERY helpful.

                          it is currently not possible to clear "simple" fields of Objetcts via Microsoft Graph (Group.Description, User.Surname ...)

                          Would be great if this was supported.

                          • Provide Office365 API support in MSDN forums

                            StackOverflow isn't working out. We need a proper MSDN forum for Office365API support. I've seen 3 different tags suggested, the most common of which has no questions. The only questions that do exist are all first timers some of which are answered by first timers on behalf of MS as well (evidence that both your users and employees aren't on SO)

                            Also check out this yes/no question that was closed unanswered as 'too broad' by rouge moderators.

                            http://stackoverflow.com/questions/22699578/questions-about-office-365-preview-apis

                            Maybe instead of providing support in blog comments, gallery discussions and twitter it would help to use a proper msdn forum.

                            • Allow Access to Planner using Client Credentials Flow

                              Planner tasks, buckets and plans are apparently not accessible using client credentials flow (app only).

                              I can access them using code flow authentication, but that's not my requirement (internal web service).

                              Everything else seems to work - it's just the planner stuff that doesn't (401 unauthorized).

                              Is there a workaround that doesn't require a user to log in?

                              • 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.".

                                  I would like to be able to access the raw message data. Mainly the RFC2822 Message-Id and plain text body.

                                  • Add an O365 REST API endpoint returning a list of pinned "My Apps" of a current user

                                    When I'm creating an App on Office 365, users can pin them and select them from the "My Apps" menu in the new Office 365 ribbon.

                                    I would like to recreate this menu/whole ribbon in my app (desktop or web, whatever), to bring a consistent experience to my end users. By this, my users could easly switch between O365 Apps and my app.

                                    I'm inspired by TechEd Europe and all the O365 sessions. This is what imho is missing and is very important atm.

                                    Something like:
                                    dev.office.com/me/apps/pinned

                                    • Detail about recurring appointment outlook 365 mail api

                                      whilst creating in outlook 365 i need to see recurring appointment detail in mail app area , like its pattern(weekly, monthly, daily) strat date, end date , durtaion etc.

                                      office.context.mailbox.item does not seems to provide much detail like pattern

                                      it will be great if we can get those detail, just like outlook client addin provides those details.

                                      • Less restrictions to the Office 365 REST API

                                        I'm looking into ways to migrate email from an on-premise Exchange server to Office 365. The REST API ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/dn605896 ) looks promising but a bit restrictive. Certain properties like isDraft, DateTimeSent, ConversationId,.. are set as read-only. While it makes sense that a user wouldn't be able to change these things I see no reason to block applications from creating custom mail messages.

                                        As an example, after I create a new mail with the API it is set as draft but I want to have the message show as if it had been sent already. When I send a PATCH…

                                        • Office 365 Unified APi support for "External Users"

                                          Office 365 supports "External users" if the external user has a Microsoft or work/school type of account.

                                          https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Share-sites-or-documents-with-people-outside-your-organization-80e49744-e30f-44db-8d51-16661b1d4232?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                                          But the Office 365 Unified API doesn't support login and showing what the "external user" has shared to them through the Unified API (https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me)

                                          I would like to be able to add a user to Azure AD, and provide the same login process as other Office 365 users, and then my Azure Web App can show them a customized view of what has been shared with them through the Unified API.
