  1. Enable DNSSEC for outlook.com / office.com

    Microsoft Technet [1] describes exactly why this is a much needed feature: to prevent DNS spoofing at rogue networks (public Wifi, etc..) and protect Office365 users from malicious actions like credential theft.

    DNSSEC is already widely deployed by many other major service providers.

  5. Need to have an onClose event for the task pane or content pane add-in

    There should be an onClose event I can ask the user to save settings, or ask them if they are sure, and then prevent the close if necessary. If the add-ins are going to be useful business apps, the user experience of saving before closing is extremely important.

  6. Save/Load document from Office Javascript API

    The save() methods that exists in the API's aren't aren't really very useful. This extends the typical Ctrl+S functionality. It would be great to implement a feature in which it would be possible for us to apply the save() method with a parameter: 'Url/path'. Currently it isn't possible for us to save a document to a specific location nor is it possible for us to load a document from a specific location.

    Functions in topic:
    - save(string url): apply url/path to where you wish to save the document.
    - load(string url): apply url/path to a document you wish to load.

  8. Customization of Add-in Docking location

    Is there a way to specify, docking the task pane add-in in the manifest or any other manner. Default is always right, but few users need that In left hand side.

    If not please suggest any possible solution

  9. Allow to open/save files via JS

    It would be very useful to have ability to open file from provided location or to save it there. This way developers could provide better cloud solutions.

    Scenarios:
    - Open file from or Save file to FileStream
    - Open file from os Save file to provided URL (supporting http/ftp even secured)

  11. Support a Debugger for Mac desktop clients

    Supporting the Chrome Debugging Protocol on the embedded Webkit instance that runs in Office for Mac would make something like github.com/Microsoft/vscode-chrome-debug will be a viable debugger on the Mac.

    There maybe alternatives to Chrome Debugging Protocol that I'm unaware of that can more easily be supported by VS Code. Either way, we are simply asking for a full fledged debugger (unlike Vorlon.js) that can plug in to the running add-in and set breakpoints, explore values etc.

  12. Customize Word Ribbon Bar in Office 365

    When inserting ribbon icons into a word ribbon bar, couldn't customize the ribbon icons as we want. For an example when I add 3 buttons, it will appear as horizontal direction. But when I add 4 buttons one icon will appear as usual but other three as small icons for vertical direction. It would be great if we can customize ribbon icons through the API.

    We are able to invoke a built-in Ribbon command in VBA by using:

    Application.CommandBars.ExecuteMso(“Copy”)

  15. Support an option to insert content pane from add-in commands

    Recently we got an option to insert task panes using add-in commands which is really nice feature. It would be very useful to have an option to insert content panes in Excel, Word and Power Point as well.

  17. Ability to set task pane title from Office.js

    Currently, the task pane title for an Office.js add-in can be set only, AFAICT, from the manifest. It would be nice to update the title of the task pane from Office.js

    Some account storage that can be used by Office add-in to save account related info, like favorite list, last used settings and etc.

  19. deselect selected text - setSelectedDataAsync - Office Javascript Add-ins

    I've been finding that I would really benefit from being able to de-select the currently selected text, or just be able to use setSelectedDataAsync in such a way so that when I call it again, it adds text AFTER not replace the current text.

    The use-case is a tool which generates Meeting Minute Actions, the user creates an action, it's sent to sharepoint, then a link is returned to that action. The link is then placed in a bullet list.

    To achieve this now I will have to change the app to instead of being a static page, be a…

  20. provide a way to access a calendar from the browser

    1) For the calendars, I would need a property similar to Event.WebLink in order to be able to access the calendar from the browser

    2) If possible, when opening the calendar in the browser, I would need to provide the calendar view (day/week/month) and the date.
