  1. provide a one drive for business sync client api

    The primary use would be to allow enterprises to configure users one drive for business to sync automatically. Also being able to push down their teams document library would be useful too.
    I was thinking about you could support this across multiple platforms and maybe you drive it from the server side and have the client look up which libraries to sync based off a list in their mysite.

      • Provide Active Directory Web Services support for User Profile Service

        In Federated Identity scenarios that require connecting to multiple Active Directory repositories using ADFS, there is no current way to use the User Profile service without connecting directly to the underlying LDAP/AD store. Instead, the User Profile service should support querying for user account information over Active Directory Web Services (ADWS) to better support Federated Identity in an organization using SharePoint and Claims-picking.

          • Expose Office API via Swagger.

            OK this is a radical idea from listening to @mkristensen talk about VS.NET tooling and how they are looking at supporting Swagger 2.0 to provide code generation for RESTful APIs in VSNET.

            http://devchat.tv/adventures-in-angular/019-aia-microsoft-tooling-with-mads-kristensen

            I looked up Swagger and their online documentation editor, and browser and here's an example

            http://petstore.swagger.wordnik.com/#!/pet/updatePet

            Which is surprisingly similar to Office 365's

            http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn600182(v=office.15).aspx

            I think Office 365 documentation on MSDN should still be the primary resource. Any future tie in to API-Sandbox would be awesome.

            But if VSNET starts to support auto-codegen (like the old days with WSDL/Soap Services) from Swagger documentation, then I can also…

                • Make the functionality of the Office Applications (mainly Word and Excel) available "as a service" for Store/Mobile Apps.

                  Excerpt from Yammer conversation:

                  Hi groupmembers!

                  We're developing a serious Healthcare App for Windows (8) Store. Aiming on mobile.

                  What we have seen in demo's is a lot of Mail, Contacts and SharePoint. What we are looking for is a way to tap the power of Word and Excel for our Store App.

                  Please come up with a good suggestion!

                  What I mean is Word/Excel API's that works for Store/Mobile App development. No more, but certainly no less than that :-)

                  Jeremy Thake (Microsoft)

                  What do you mean by "Word API". When you say "Word API" do you mean Word…

                  • Allow to configure and extend the mapping of user profile attributes between the Azure AD and the SharePoint Online

                    Currently only a minimal set of AAD attributes is synchronized to SharePoint Online UPA (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh147510.aspx#section1). It should be possible to change and extend the list of properties that are synced and also allow the writeback of user property values from SPO to AAD.

                    • Office 365 SDK API - Class Library Reference

                      The documentation on dev.office.com for the new SDK API reference is great for how to, but what's missing is class library documentation for the assemblies added in the various NuGet packages. For instance, I should be able to get to a page that for something like Microsoft.Office365.OutlookServices.OutlookServiceClient. Today I have to use a .NET reflection tool, the Object Browser in Visual Studio or write some code and see the IntelliSense to see what objects, methods & properties are available to me.

                      • Office 365 SDK Docs - Add Details on How To Authenticate

                        This guidance (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/office365/howto/common-calendar-tasks-client-library#GetAuthToken) is not as complete as it should be. You likely want to add add additional NuGet packages to make this work. Suggest adding the recommended way to authenticate, such as OWIN / ADAL, to help people get started faster.

                        • Provide O365 API calendar callbacks/subscriptions

                          At the moment the only way to monitor a user's calendar for changes is to poll on a regular basis. This is inefficient for the consumer and the host given the frequency at which people change their calendars.

                          Something similar to Google's watch capability would be ideal https://developers.google.com/google-apps/calendar/v3/reference/events/watch

                                I would like to have API access to all Service health of each of our customers O365 servers. I know you can view individual service health but it would be good to build a dashboard that you can add all your customers on Office 365 and display the current health for Exchange, Lync , Share point etc. If there was an issue you can have a real-time dashboard and provide reactive support to your customer and not have to wait for them to call with an issue.

                                • Expose the Capability Name, ServiceUri and ServiceResourceIds in the DiscoveryContext class

                                  The Office 365 API exposes the "/services" endpoint, which returns a collection of service Uri endpoints. However, the DiscoveryContext class does not expose the collection, rather it looks up a specific endpoint based on a capability name that is passed into the method (ServiceResourceId or Capability name).

                                  I would like a method that returns the collection of CapabilityDiscoveryResults. Alternatively, add an Enum to the library to aid in the selection of Capability/ServiceResourceId.

                                    • File thumbnails/preview API

                                      The WOPI file previews are available in OneDrive for Business if you have the rtFa and FedAuth cookies.

                                      You can also download the files using the _api/files REST API, through OAuth without having the session cookies.

                                      I would like to use the same OAuth authentication to request previews of the files (action=imagepreview) when I am listing them through the REST API.

                                      • Allow better viewing of subtasks

                                        When there are tasks that are subtasks it is difficult for users that are given a link or see it in their task list to know what the parent tasks is. When viewing the task in view or edit mode it would be helpful to see what the parent is or be able to easily link to it.

                                        • Enable Azure Workflows to Call O365 APIs

                                          As it stands, neither on-premise or O365 based workflows can call O365 APIs using Access Tokens. Only Basic Auth works. It would be great to be able to call O365 APIs from simple workflows built using the HttpSend activity.
