  1. Fix GeneralExceptions being thrown when multiple workbook are opened

    Sometimes when more than one workbook is opened, then a:
    GeneralException: There was an internal error while processing the request
    is thrown during various office-js operations.

    See https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js/issues/771 for details.

    I know there's a workaround:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/excel/force-excel-to-open-new-instance
    but it's impossible to force clients to use it.

  2. Allow write-able access to function RPN interpratation

    Whenever there are complex formulas it requires major effort for the developer introducing proper/robust parser whenever these formulas should be processed correctly without breaking the report.

    Giving developers access to RPN interpratation of the formulas would significantly help to support following use-cases:


    1. Easier and robust implementation of custom UI/UX for Function wizard, i.e. UI can support editing of very complex formulas without breaking the report

    2. Easier migration/update of existing custom functions in complex scenarios to support new features, one sample is company having addin for many years and want to migrate the formulas to Dynamic Arrays without throwing burden on…

  3. Support Custom Functions on iPad

    My add-in's core value proposition lies in custom functions and we'd like to support as many platforms as possible.

    Would be great to see custom functions capabilities coming to iPad alongside Web / Mac / Windows!

  4. Add support for Document.getFileAsync method in Volume licensed versions of Office Excel

    I am attempting to use the Document.getFileAsync method in Office Excel 2016 on Windows. Executing the method fails with an "Permission Denied" error.

    Error code: 7000
    Error name: "Permission Denied"
    Error message: "You don't have sufficient permissions for this action."

    This functionality is critical to our Add-in and we have many customers that use this 2016 volume licensed version of Office. They are not able to upgrade since the version is locked down at 16.0.4266.1001.

  7. Add support for calculated fields in a Pivot Table

    I cannot find a way to add calculated fields to a PivotTable in Office JS.
    In VBA there was CalculatedFields where we can add value fields with excel formula expression.

    Is it not supported, if yes then is it their in the to do list and when can we expect to have it?

  8. Reverse VLookUp/ WLookUp

    The LookUp formulas are very powerful tools for any kind of application. Often you are not only searching for the first corresponding value in an Excel sheet, but also for the last corresponding value in an Excel sheet. So reverse references would be very useful.
    The Reverse VLookUp should therefore search from bottom to top in the matrix.
    The Reverse WLookUp should therefore search from right to left in the matrix.

  9. add a visible non-visible property to all add-ins

    There should be a property which tells if the taskpane add-in is currently visible on the screen, and also an event for any change in this property. I know there is the document.visibilty property but it is not reliable especially in the desktop version

  11. pass parameters from the command line into Office.initialize.

    Currently we launch the Addin (saved workbook) on desktop by running excel.exe via the command prompt as we have to pass some parameters to the addin.

    But I cant find any way to read these command line arguments in the addins Office.initialize.

  14. Extend pivot api to include grouping. Helpful when using dates in a pivot table.

    Would be great to get grouping as part of the pivot table api, so that we can group by Year, Months, Quarters when using dates

  16. Enable worksheet onchange event on data change in PivotTable data values in Excel Online.

    Excel Online doesnt allow any edits on the PivotTable data value.
    We have a use case where the user can edit the pivottable and in the onchange event we run the custom code to update the source and do other calculations and then refresh the pivottable so that the changes are persistent on the Pivottable.

    This works fine in desktop Excel but not in Online Excel since edibility is not supported on it.

  17. Support to add custom buttons to PivotTable Context Menu

    Currently we can add buttons to Cell Menu only in excel. since PivotTable is widely used it would make sense to add support for PivotTable Context Menu as well.

  18. Custom Context menu for Excel table

    Provide a context menu option for Excel Tables. Currently they are only visible on normal cells. As soon as I create a table, the custom context menu that I created disappears.

  19. expand range

    Is there a way of expanding existing Excel Range in js /react? i have been trying to do this but no luck. The first data i loaded consisted of 3 rows and i wrapped that with range. then i loaded another data with 6 rows the Range didn't expand to accommodate the second data size.

  20. user input

    Excel officejs should support Table event listener for User input events only.

    The current event listenrer is triggered by both background update and user input which is not ideal.

    Details could be found https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js/issues/1122
