  1. Fix GeneralExceptions being thrown when multiple Excel instances 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. 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.

  3. Implement arrow style for a data series in a chart

    In Office Excel, you have an option to implement an arrow style in your line chart for a data series.

    However, it seems like the office.js library is unable to implement this option.

    Excel.Line has the option I'm looking for (beginArrowheadLength, beginArrowheadStyle, etc, ), but it was strictly for shapes, completely separate from series charts, and has no way to somehow implement a custom shape to the data series.

    Adding this feature would help me greatly to create a chart directly to excel instead of building a custom chart inside the page.

    More information on my stackoverflow question:

  6. PLEASE!!! Remove the "Convert to Stocks" tag that pops onto the screen obscuring other data on the sheet.

    While the new stocks data type is fine, those of us NOT wanting Stocks are faced with a new persistent pop up tag suggesting we "convert" anything that kind of looks like a ticker symbol. This tag maddeningly blocks adjoining values that we NEED TO SEE while working.

  7. Consolidation

    While applying the Consolidation option in excel, it shows as "Book 1" for all the consolidated sheets instead of a respective worksheet name.

  8. Make API for accessing Automatically Expend Table Option available in office.js

    Currently office.js does not provide an API for accessing Automatically Expend Table Option or other auto correct options for tables.
    In VBscript you would use Application.AutoCorrect object. Having something like that would be very useful.

  11. Provide way in VBA to know who, if anyone, is currently coauthoring a OneDrive/Office365 document

    There are certain functions and events (only tested in Excel .xlsm desktop) that don't work when a document is in coauthor mode using OneDrive/Office365 syncing. If only one person is in the file, the macros work fine. If more than one are in it and co-authoring it would be good to know so certain macros can be prevented from running that otherwise cause the "Reload document" message on the computer that didn't run the macro.
    Some of the VBA that doesn't work during coauthoring include all .FormatConditions code (even though you can manually add conditional formatting, doing it by VBA…

  13. Disable resizing and moving Slicers

    In current version of Office JS, we are not able to disable resizing and moving of dynamically created Slicer.
    This would be useful if we want to restrict user from moving the slicers.
    Equivalent to VBA property , Slicer.DisableMoveResizeUI

  15. Provide access to SQL queries through Officejs API for Add-ins

    Spreadsheets built for handling financial data need access to the corporate database. Presumably that is why capabilities are provided within Excel to define and execute SQL queries within the context of a workbook/worksheet.The role of an Add-in to provide a whole host of capabilities to the workbook author cannot be overstated. Yet OfficeJS Excel API seem to be lacking the ability to define, access, and execute the aforementioned queries. Are there any plans in the works to provide the capabilities?
    The lack of this capability particularly affects 3rd party add-in providers who cannot otherwise access a customer's corporate database.

  16. Excel AddIn - Add case sensitivity option to Excel.ListDataValidation

    The Excel API for list data validation has the source property defined as either a string (of comma separated values) or a range. However these two different types are not treated the same.

    Data validation lists passed to source as strings will evaluate with case sensitivity. Lists passed to source as an Excel.range will evaluate without case sensitivity. This makes it impossible to use a list for data validation that comes from memory (or any place other than an Excel range) and to treat it with case insensitivity.

    I suggest a case sensitivity/match case property be added to Excel,ListDataValidation so…

  19. Add .getItemAt functionality to PivotTableCollection

    Most collection objects in the JavaScript API have a .getItemAt method. This allows you to access user-created objects without having to know how they're named. PivotTableCollection lacks this method.

  20. Support OfficeExtension.EmbeddedSession for Excel (and Word and PowerPoint)

    EmbeddedSession (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/javascript/api/office/officeextension.embeddedsession?view=common-js) is only supported for Visio (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/reference/overview/visio-javascript-reference-overview). We would like to be able to embed an Excel workbook on a public web page and be able to control it via Office.js.

    You can embed Excel via the OneDrive embed > JavaScript configurator and control it using the very old JavaScript API (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/developer/sharepoint-2010/hh315812(v=office.14)), but that API lacks many key features of Office.js.
