  1. Allow office.js Outlook add-ins to open a new compose email form

    Our use case is to display email addresses for contacts in a user's CRM (other colleagues of the sender, for example), and those addresses be hyperlinks to open a new email in the active Outlook with the "TO:" field pre-populated with that address.

    • Support for outlook task add-in

      We would like to have web add-in support for tasks similar to email and appointments/meetings. We understand that this support is not there yet but I would help us a lot if task add-ins are supported by Office 365.

      Thanks,
      Pankaj

        • Check attachments on OnSend event of Outlook JavaScript add-ins

          Now we can't get attachments on OnSend event of Outlook JavaScript add-ins.
          Because I'd like to check the content of attachments before the message will be sent, it would be great if we could get attachment on OnSend event.

          • The search function for subfolders is required

            Hi , I am using Oulook 2013 and have 100+ subfolders, each with different names.
            Now, when i want to locate a particular subfolder, I need to scroll through each one of them to find the subfolder i want.
            So, if there was a search function, I could easily locate my subfolder & this would make my life easier, instead of scrolling throught all the subfolders to find the right one i need.
            Please help and advise.!

                • 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…

                    • Allow add-in to block clicking certain links in the message

                      For some security-related add-ins, it is critical for the add-in to be able to detect when a user has clicked on a link in the body of a message. The add-in could then examine the URL to decide whether to let the action proceed or if it seems dangerous, the add-in could block the click and show an error message.

                        An attachment gets added or removed
                        Email body changes
                        Email subject changes
                        Recipients gets added or removed

                          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.

                          • Launch an Outlook Add-in from Navigation Bar (not limited to the context of a specific message)

                            I would like to be able to launch a plugin from the Navigation pane. It shouldn't care about any selected message, but it would be great if this functionality also provided a way to include sub-tree items in the Navigation tree (sub-folders).

                            My understanding is these are available in module extensions, however these do not work on anything except the Windows client and are not available to used in the Store.

                            My use-case involves replacing the standard Folder View in Outlook with a custom one (my emails showing in a custom calendar view, specifically).

                            • Token from getCallbackTokenAsync() is broken for single Appointment Occurrence

                              The GetItem request fails with error "Data is corrupt., Store ID isn't an ID of a folder, item or mailbox.", if you use the token resulting from getCallbackTokenAsync() to request the appointment occurence.

                              The same request works if you use the makeEwsRequestAsync() method, but this is unacceptable, as it is far more cumbersome to work with the response. I want to use the EWS manage API on an ASP.NET MVC server.

                              • Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync always generates meeting requests for calendar items

                                When using a Mail Add-in in OWA it is possible to save a calendar item using the Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync method in the Office JavaScript API. If the calendar item contains attendees then all of these attendees receive meeting requests each time the Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync method is called.

                                To get the ItemId for a calendar item you have to call Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync method. So if you want to access the calendar item through EWS there is no option but to call Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync to save the item. And this call will generate meeting requests to the attendees.

                                Would it be possible to add an extra…

                                • Allow AutoRun of Outlook Addins

                                  Just like the regular MS Office addins, we would like to create an addin that runs automatically when a mail is selected. There are various use cases for this.

                                  For example, we built an addin that scans email messages when selected and analyzes is and displays messages to the user based on the ,message. This addin is used in the context of phishing mails.

                                  This addin is currently not possible with the current Outlook 365 development model as we want to be proactive and not wait for our users to click on an icon before a mail is processed. In…

                                    • How Attachments names are displayed in the Mail Composer Window, Why Did It Have To Change?

                                      Hey, There's been a change in the latest Outlook for Mac and the Attachment appears in name truncated box in the Window vice how it used to be displayed with it's entire name. This makes it difficult to see names of long named files in the Window, a real inconvenience for me. I really hope you can make this as an option and remove the new hard coded display method.

                                        • Support iOS compose in Add-Ins

                                          Currently (05/2017) Outlook for iOS does not support Compose Add-Ins.

                                          Please support iOS and give us some idea of when this support will be available.
