  3. Add Office.EventType.ItemSent event for Outlook

    This should work simular as the Office.EventType.ItemSend event and pass a parameter with the id of the newly sent email item. It would be handy to be able to post process emails that have been sent.

  4. Support Compose AddIn on Mobile

    According to this...

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/dev/add-ins/reference/manifest/extensionpoint#extension-points-for-outlook

    ...Addins are only supported for message read, on mobile. Can we please have a MobileMessageReadCommandSurface ExtensionPoint, so that we may create an addin for message compose, on mobile.

  5. Make module extension point available in Outlook for Mac

    The 'Module' extension point is currently only available to windows users.
    This is a big limitation when trying to build an add-in that works across OS's.

    Our current alternative is to supplement the panel-based add-in with an external browser based app, instead of using the 'Module' extension, but would be better for our users (and microsoft I guess) to be able to not leave Outlook to use our service.

  6. Add "Show As" and "Reminder" fields in the Javascript API for Outlook

    Being able to retrieve (and possibly control) the "Show As" {Free, Busy, Tentative,...} and the "Reminder" {None, 1 minute, ...} fields would be incredibly useful.

    Something like this (in AppointmentCompose):

    Office.context.mailbox.item.showAs.getAsync(r => ...)
    Office.context.mailbox.item.addHandlerAsync(Office.EventType.ShowAsChanged, r => ...)

    Office.context.mailbox.item.reminder.getAsync(r => ...)
    Office.context.mailbox.item.addHandlerAsync(Office.EventType.ReminderChanged, r => ...)

  8. create the function for an ALL MAIL INBOX

    this is a INBOX where all other email inboxes from all/other supplier (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, hotmail etc) can be linked to - similar to what is available in Windows Mail. this would remove the need to have them all duplicated in favorites to achieve clear visibility and avoid filling up the Right hand column with the various in boxes thereby giving great visibility to the other PST files stored.

  9. Outlook opening from inside excel officejs

    Be able to take some content from the excel worksheet and put it in an outlook email. Then, instead of it being sent by the system but rather open to me the new email so I would be able to control it and if i would be satisfied i will send it manually.

  10. Allow the Outlook 2016 slider to work like the Outlook 2013 slider

    Create a registry key to not have the slider act upon a cached public folder like Outlook 2013.

  11. currency

    Please make the currency field work the same as it did prior to the September 2019 updates.
    The scenario,


    1. Create a custom field in an exchange public folder with the field type of currency

    2. Cache the public folder.

    3. Enter data in the currency field in the cached copy.

    4. Synch to Exchange

    5. Remove offline items (right click folder and choose Clear Offline items)

    6. Resync the folder

    7. Field value can no longer be seen in the cached public folder

    8. Inquire the field on the cached public folder and the online public folder.

    9. Field type is now PTI8 instead of PTCurrency

  12. In outlook, allow setting of when to send out of office messages from a calendar rather than just a date range. Click all the seperate days.

    In outlook, allow setting of when to send out of office messages by clicking dates in a calendar rather than just allowing a single date range. Click all the seperate days you want to say you are not available, eg when you book holiday you can set it in advance and not have to worry about setting it at the last minute because you already have a setting in place before that time.

  13. displayMessageForm

    В настоящее время метод displayMessageForm открывает сообщение, на которое указывает itemId, в новом окне. Было бы здорово, если бы мы могли передать параметр методу Office.context.mailbox.displayMessageForm (), который позволяет заменить текущее визуализированное сообщение новым сообщением, указанным в itemId. Вариант использования, который я хочу включить здесь, заключается в программной навигации с помощью надстройки javascript к произвольным сообщениям, знающим их itemIds.

  14. Pattern Search and Highlighting for Outlook Attachments using Word/Excel/Powerpoint JS API library

    Currently we can only fetch base64 content of attachements of a particular mail , if we can have the ability to invoke word/Excel/ppt js inside of outlook js , then we could process the attachments for patterns and keyword search and highlight them before the mail is send.

    This feature can come in handy to restrict emails based on restrictive words or personal information if any found in attachments.

  15. Allow to check and execute side effects before close

    Basic business flow of Calendar Compose Add in
    1. User opens add in and selects some items
    2. User will click 'Save & Close' or Cross mark which asks for Save or No or Cancel
    3. If user chose to save the appointment make a callback to task pane code which can do an api call by taking the details from the compose flow(all async calls should still work).

    Note: Compose window closing event should be differentiable from add-in taskpane closing(user clicking 'x' mark beside taskpane).

    Bonus-> make available itemId while callback to taskpane

  16. Attach HTML container e.g. Taskpane to On Send event in Outlook

    According to this post (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46369156/send-add-in-for-outlook-ui), this is not possible, but this is exactly what we want to do. Is there any way to do this?

  17. Looking for “On save feature for Outlook add-ins”

    On the Microsoft document, I've got the On to send add-ins event (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/add-ins/outlook-on-send-addins) which is used when we create a new event. Similarly when we update the event the "Send" button changes to "Save", however, the same "Save" event documentations is not present on the Microsoft document.

    How can I call my custom function when a user clicks on save while updating any event and update the same on my custom code.

  18. Allow to set the "sender" and "from" properties of a message

    When composing a message, let the add-in set the "sender" and "from" properties.

    Related properties:
    Office.context.mailbox.item.from
    Office.context.mailbox.item.sender

    Remark: So far it is only able to read them.
