  1. Command line switch to export VBA code, Macros, forms, etc. to a directory of text files from Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Access

    Add command line switch to Office products to export VBA code, Macros, Form definitions, Table Schema, Worksheet properties, etc. to individual text files.

    This is an export only and not an import.

    Benefits
    1. I can full text search the VBA code base instead of the one at a time search interface in the VBA developer tools in Office.
    2. I can commit the Word/Excel/Access file and the exported VBA source code to version control. This allows me to do differences and change tracking on the VBA code, table schemas, etc.

    Some third party tools exist to do parts of…

  3. MS Graph API for Preservation Hold Library

    It would help me a lot if I can use the API for getting the content from Preservation hold library. When I see the audit log for the Teams and OneDrive as an auditor, to check which contents the guest users accessed, I usually use the query with 'ListItemUniqueId,' but when the content has already been deleted, I cannot hit the content via API, and need to download many files from Security Compliance Center one by one. Hopefully in the next version will cover this part, thanks.

  4. Excalc

    there are 2 calculators in a windows pc
    1.calc.exe
    2.excel.exe

    officially i use, excel for calculations more than i use calc

    if there would be a utility excalc.exe which can launch a very simple 100column x 100row excel grid calculator for a quick calculation it would be a great addition

    provided it should have a preloaded formula to perform any basic calculations

  6. Exchange Online Protection - Powershell cmdlets to obtain status, to view message(headers), to release messages

    As as administrator PowerShell is a powerful Tool to survey and handle various situations.

    I'd really love the ability to get the status of our EOP quarantine - also to be able to release quarantine mail using PowerShell cmdlets.

    It seems an omission this is not possible today.

  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. Graph API : https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/findRooms can return only 100 records

    Graph PI https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/findRooms just returns first 100 records and does nott work with any other parameter. We are trying to integrate with O365 meeting rooms for room reservation app but it just doesnt fetch full list. We also tried RoomList parameter 'https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/findRooms(RoomList='{'191Oriordan.L5ORiordan@ap.jll.com'}')' but even this option is not working

  11. make attachments button/link available inside actionable messages cards

    With actionable message cards in Outlook, we are able to make it easy for users to act on events in external systems without leaving their outlooks with Approve/Reject buttons. There are scenarios when a simple text accompanying the card is not enough to make a user decision, but providing a user with a report as an attachment to email would make the data sufficient, and a user would still be able to remain working in Outlook. It would be very handy if this attachment could be displayed on the card as a clickable icon/text/object making the whole UX plain clear…

  12. Disclose a public OfficeJs bug tracker

    Right now add in developers have no clue what bugs exist, what the status of bugs is because there is no such thing as an OfficeJs bug tracker. Why isn't there? it seems super obvious to have?

  13. Userforms in OSX Excel 365

    Realize that many Mac Users are also geeks. Recall the dismal failure of Excel 2008 because of no VBA? Please add user forms to Excel 365 or I will just stop using all Microsoft products. There are alternatives to Excel I can use. I am an Excel developer. You are making it impossible for me to satisfy my customers.

  17. Add ability to alias tables and queries in design view

    E.g. "Select T1.* from [Long Table Name] as T1". Until recently, you could edit aliases for objects in query design view, but that ability was lost in most recent update. Table aliases make queries more readable and reduce size of SQL text, for example to fit within the 255 character limit for macros like "OpenQuery".

  18. Button on toolbar to lock/unlock code from edits

    When working in the VBA editor, I oftentimes inadvertently insert a character into my code. Perhaps I do Ctrl+S to save, but, for some reason an S gets inserted. Or Ctrl+C or Ctrl+V. Oftentimes stray characters find their way in.

    I'd like a button on the toolbar to lock/unlock code from edits. Code is initially locked when editor is opened. Nothing can be changed. If I want to edit code, I just click the button on the toolbar, do my edits, and then click it again when I'm done.

    If the VBA editor is closed and reopened, the code is…

  19. Microsoft Office 365 API Tools support for Windows Store Apps written in JavaScript

    There is currently no support for Windows Store Apps written in JavaScript in the Microsoft Office 365 API Tools: https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/a15b85e6-69a7-4fdf-adda-a38066bb5155
