  1. Please provide update for retail version of Office 2019 so it get latest versions of Javascript API

    There are several new features that are going to be released this year like Custom Functions or Dynamic Arrays which are extremely critical for our Addin and our customers. And those won't be available for retail version of Office 2016/2019

    Microsoft should provide at least one time update for the Office 2019 to support these features so our customers can leverage the functionality ASAP without having to wait for next retail version!

    For us it is critical thing as there are quite a lot customers preferring retail versions over Office365 subscription.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Automation for guest accounts in SharePoint Online

    So I have a vendor whom we have shared a site with to allow the vendor to upload files. But it does not appear to be possible to automate this as it appears that only tenant users can authenticate. The only method available to the vendor guest user is via the browser GUI on sharepoint.com ; all other methods fail.

    Because of this limitation, Microsoft is effectively forcing us to create service accounts in Azure AD and hand out said credentials to external users for no other reason than to automate copying a few files. I do not feel that…

  5. Stop using Internet Explorer for the desktop add-ins

    Either embed Webkit or use Edge - this has gone on long enough.

  7. Allow all OfficeTabs to be used Online as well

    When choosing a tab like TabFormulas or TabReferences as the OfficeTab in the manifest, the tab does not appear when going to Office.com. It would be good if the tab would appear with the add-in under it, similar to how the Addins tab works currently.

  9. Update Office.js more often

    The latest update on github is from 7 month ago with some fixes and the initial release is from 2 years back. is Office.js development dead? I was hoping to finally have a common code base for Word/Excel on windows, mac and office365 alike but at this update rate I am afraid I'm betting on a dead project. Are there any future releases planned?

  11. Default proofing Language

    Allow the default proofing language on an existing document to be changed, without automatically reverting back to the original. Example being language original being English US, manually changed to English UK, automatically reverted to English US. Changing default language in language settings only applies to new documents and does not fix the issue with existing documents. Informs the user that they are spelling items incorrectly, such as 'colour' being incorrect, despite the language being set to English UK, and trying to correct this to 'color.'

  12. Load initialization scripts on start

    I wish Manifest file has a field of pre-load script (or html) url which allows Office products, such as Excel, executes cleanup and initialization process during start like how it has been done as VBA add-ins.

    There are certain cases (single add-in multiple task-pane, UI-less process) we cannot use session storage to store information. Currently we have to store them in local storage which might be still there after restart the host program. A pre-load script will be helpful in such cases to clean up unwanted local storage.

    In addition, it allows some automated process (like scheduled task) to be…

  14. Passing querystring parameters to add-ins opened in Office 365

    When a word document is opened in Word online (by clicking the office 365 repository url of the document) is it possible to pass the url to the add-in opened in Word online application. If this is possible then external applications can pass arguments to the add-ins via the url

  16. Extend the "commands" to include built-in idMso for use in custom groups and tabs as well as repurposing

    In the COM world using Ribbon XML it's possible to: 1) display built-in buttons in custom groups and 2) re-purpose built-in buttons. This way the UI can be optimized for the purposes of an add-in. (2) is especially important because Office applications don't expose very many events, making it difficult to impossible to know when a user has done something that requires a reaction from the add-in. In this regard, COM add-ins and VBA are still much more powerful than the JS APIs.

  17. Support for CSS “print” media type for content add-ins

    When you print a content add-in, an exact screenshot of the add-in’s current view is getting printed. This is unfavorable as all the UI/control elements you may use in your add-in (menus, buttons, navigation, etc.) get printed as well.

    It would be so much better if Office could use the “screen” and “print” media types of CSS so you can hide specific elements (i.e. the UI ones) for the print-only appearance.

  18. Allow Application-Level or Document-Level Office Addins

    In VSTO, we can create Application-Level or Document-Level documents. In Office-JS, It seems that at the moment it is a mixture of application level for the ribbon/pane and workbook level for the JS.
    This separation is important so developers can sell, for instance, a specific workbook for its own and only own ribbons and panes, or a generic applciation level tool.
    A consequence of this request is that it should be possible to attach an office addin (initialization) to a specific document.

  19. Allow small sized ribbon icons

    Currently it is possible to add only large sized icons in Office Addins ribbon.
    It would be great to have smaller icon sized icons.

  20. Improve Custom Dialog

    Please improve the dialog, it should allow to:
    - set modality (right now the dialog is not modal!)
    - have bidirectional communication, i.e. to have possibility to pass information directly from dialog to task pane and vice versa.

    There are many use cases valid for both requirements:
    - when you need to retrieve data from task pane (e.g. lazy loading)
    - you have html where you fill the content, right now you need to pass them in URL which is not really nice solution.
