  1. Add support for web office add-ins development on Linux

    Hi,

    As the title says, I can't develop add-ins for web office on Linux.
    I followed the documentation on creating OneNote add-in, but when I run npm run start:web, I get this:

    Debugging is being started...
    App type: web
    Unable to start the dev server. Error: Platform not supported: linux
    Debugging started.

    Thanks in advance

  2. VBA IDE Window opening too small (bug)

    Over the past few months the VBA IDE window has been opening in a very small compact window. It is happening to other developers in my company.

    I am using Office 365 (16.0.10730.20264) 32-bit

  7. Delete Event flow should provide the details of the event

    Currently the Delete Calendar Event flow can send only the ID of the event that was just deleted. We have an application that needs to know the details of what was deleted in order to react appropriately.

  9. Open XML SDK - add a support to save Word docx as PDF. 3rd party tools are costly and do not render complex docx as SaveAs2 of Word Interop.

    Word Interop is a nice solution, yet very slow (comparing to OpenXml) and unreliable (we encountered that if a user clicks Ctrl+C to copy something, whilst Interop is running in a background, generating multiple documents, its content will be pasted onto one of those documents, although the user intended to paste it somewhere else) . There are 3rd party solutions to save as PDF from OpenXml, yet they do not render correctly our relatively complex invoices (header with image and table, footer with table and so on), so for now we ended up to generate them all as docx and…

  10. Collapsible vba procedures

    By default each procedure should only have the first procedure line (header) visible with an expand button to show all lines within the procedure. Currently a lot of time is spend scrolling through code.

    I would also like to see the two drop downs for general and declarations changed to a tree view on the left so that I can more easily navigate procedures and methods.

  11. Enable Microsoft Bookings for 365 Enterprise E3 Developer

    Hi,

    I have been using Microsoft Bookings for a while until last year it suddenly was disabled for my account.
    I was using the outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/bookings/ url to access Bookings but are no longer able to.

    Also the "Business Apps (Free)" are not available for my E3 Developer subscription, but they are for the normal E3 which is weird.

    It would be great if Bookings or the Business Apps (Free) could be enabled for the E3 Developer subscription.

    Thanks!

  13. Improve VBA IDE: Increase number of UNDOs

    VBA editor allows to undo only the last 20 steps. That feels like programming in 1980s. I don't think there is any reason not to raise this number, this particular improvement should be a TOP PRIORITY for the team.

  15. Improve VBA IDE: Highlight start and end of Blocks e.g. If/End If, With/End With, Do/Loop etc

    It would be great if the VBA IDE would highlight...

    (a) The start and of Blocks such as If/End If. So if you highlighted the "If" the matching "End If" would also be highlighted. This would be great for both coding but also auditing inherited code.

    (b) Highlight incomplete Blocks: so if you start "If" it's red until such time the closing "End If" is added

  16. Provide a VBA method to count cells for color set by conditional formatting

    I noticed others have asked for a way to count cells by color. Great idea, but while you're at it, there's no way in VBA to count cells by assessing the color property set by conditional formatting, either. It is possible to create a function that will count cells that have the color property set using the fill method, but it has to be set volatile. It appears that the color property for a cell is not the same for conditional formatting as when using fill. That's interesting, and might actually be useful; however, the method would need to test…

  17. Improve VBA IDE (MS Access): better integration with SQL Server for query development in Access Front End

    Access can link to SQL Server tables but it would great if it had the same intellisense that SQL Server has for writing SQL Statements directly into the VBA IDE. So if you referred to a linked (or local) table in your VBA code then typed the period, intellisense would show the available fields.

  18. Provide a way to get the Office 365 Version on the client side

    Office 365 has monthly versions (such as 1803, 1810, etc.). This version is displayed in the Office client application's Account tab.

    I couldn't find a way to programmatically get this Version number on the client side. There is only the usual full build number.

    Is there a way or can a way be provided, please?

  19. Improve VBA IDE: Line numbering by default

    Line numbering is essential for efficient error trapping. It would be great if the VBA had line numbering by default. To be effective, it should...

    (a) automatically renumber when code is edited
    (b) be able to be toggled between show/hide

  20. ... use data of changes made on a document and time spent on it to make the user sure not to mistakenly close the doc without saving it.

    ... use data of changes made on a document and time spent on it to make the user sure not to mistakenly close the doc without saving it.
    This may happen when the open docs are so similar in content and everything, as happened for myself and 2hours effort disappeared. For example you can ask twice if the user is sure to close the doc without saving it.
