  1. Office Add-ins should run in Chromium-based Edge, not EdgeHTML

    At the moment addins run in EdgeHTML

    Recently Chromium-based Edge has been released which is much faster than EdgeHTML

    Add-ins should run in new, Chromium-based Edge.

    Will it be "just done" at the next Windows update?

    Similar to previous suggestion:

  2. Support for high DPI taskpanes

    Office now supports high-DPI and per-monitor DPI awareness, but custom task-panes do not. Add-in custom task panes are always hosted in a system aware host window and there is no way to indicate our add-in is high-DPI and multi-monitor DPI aware. Our customers therefore only see a low resolution user interface in the task panes. The Excel built-in task panes support high-DPI so this shouldn't be too difficult, maybe a registry setting indicating the add-in supports high-DPI or even an extra parameter to ICTPFactory.CreateCTP indicating support.

  6. Identify all dependencies on Office version

    I am constantly coming across Microsoft documentation that shows unworkable examples because the document didn't make clear what Office or other product it applied to. Documentation should not only be dated but identify the applications such as Visual Studio 2019, 2017, Office 2019, 2016, 2010, 2007, 2003, etc.

  7. Add Labels for version history

    I would like a way to label the version history of an Office document (word, excel, powerpoint) that is stored in OneDrive/Sharepoint.

    I love the auto versioning and it is especially useful when sharing and collaborating on a document. But it tends to lead to a version history with dozens of changes in a day with no differentiation other than the timestamp.

    I would love to be able to add a tag or label to a version like 'version sent to client X', 'Version approved after exec meeting' so we have a known spot we can compare to after many…

  8. Update the group policy templates / all office applications to allow their default font to be set via group policy

    Currently it's only possible to set the default font for Outlook and Excel via group policy. Add support so we can do this for the entire product suite directly via GP rather than having to push out new template files via logon script which risks over writing changes the users have already made to the default templates. It would also be useful to be able to set the default color theme for new documents via GP rather than the template files.

  9. Make auto-sync option in access

    Access with Sharepoint.
    Please create a simple option in Access to allow automatic synchronization when reconnecting online (after editiing records offline)
    Providing there are no conflicts, tables from Sharepoint could be synced automatically, or at least attempted to, instead of displaying the yellow ribbon with a button for syncing.

  10. Default target framework of Office Addins template should be ASP.NET Core

    Currently, the default solution of an Office Addins generates two projects that targets .NET Framework 4.6.x. Microsoft should change it to ASP.NET Core. There is a way to adapt the manifest file as seem in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/53991876/change-target-framework-of-a-office-addins-project-from-net-framework-to-net-c/53993432 , but It would be great if the keyword ~remoteAppUrl could refer to another address.
    I see this might be a problem as .NET Core is optional when installing VS and might escalate to a broader discusstion.
    Also, as asyncronous JavaScript code freaks out migrating VBA (and even web) developers, shouldn't the default template be already in TypeScript (or at least be in the…

  11. Pop up message suggesting that the battery is fully charged

    While charging the laptop, I never get to know when my laptop is fully charged without looking at the battery bar so I think there should be a pop up message suggesting that the battery is fully charged

  13. Error Messages - Ability to Copy/Paste them

    Applying to all of windows but especially Office, when a run time or other error occurs we have to laboriously type out the error message into a search engine to provide more details. Sometimes the error codes are 15 digits long. It would be great just to be able copy and paste the error information.

  14. sharepoint online - provide a way to navigate directly back to the library document location you entered library settings.

    SharePoint online, you are somewhere within a library, you click library settings and choose permissions. From here it is not always possible to navigate back to your embedded library location. You can only click library name (and start at the top). You can try clicking back arrows but if you have open a new web browser window no history is available. Some sort of navigation link is required. SP2010 use to have the yellow folder in the banner.

  15. Make possible to install Office add-ins permanently to be available offline

    I frequently have to keep my computer offline for weeks, and I'd want to use add-ins I need, like ScriptLab of FunctionsTransform, without constantly reminding myself that I must not clear browser cache or trying to self-host them.
    Simply put, I need an option to install them permanently on disk instead of memory.

  16. Copy and paste

    I want to suggest to you to make the option for a copy-paste function. Usually, we are getting one thing to copy, what if we are could make Many!!!!? For example, in Microsoft Word, I can copy one word or sentences but I want to copy many words and sentences separately and when it comes to pasting it could show us pop-ups of multiple copies and paste the one we want to the certain places. I was copying the words from the first page to the end and it was annoying to copy and paste one by one. After that,…

  17. Not equals comparison

    Filtering by something along the lines of "givenName ne 'foo'" produces
    "Unsupported property filter clause operator 'NotEqualsMatch'."

    Assuming "not equals" comparisons simply have not yet been implemented, when will we see this implemented in the future?

  18. Ability to get file as valid PowerPoint template

    When working with an Excel template (".xltx") or a Word template (".dotx"), it is possible to retrieve valid data for the template using the getFileAsync-method. This allows us to save the document as a template.
    However, when the same thing is done for a PowerPoint template (".potx"), the retrieved file doesn't represent a valid PowerPoint template. Instead, the retrieved file only works if it is treated as a regular PowerPoint file (".pptx").

    This is a very confusing inconsistency between Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
    The behavior when using getFileAsync should be the same for PowerPoint as it is for Word and…
