  1. Explain why retail version of Office 2019 received feature updates

    I noticed that the November update of the retail version of Office 2019 is version 1810, which contains feature updates. However, this contradicts the official Microsoft Office 2019 FAQ documentation (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4133312/office-2019-commercial-for-windows-and-mac-frequently-asked-questions).

    Can an explanation be given to this contradiction, please? As an add-in developer, I'd like to understand the official Microsoft stance on this so that I can plan accordingly.

          • This is an idea cum feasibility analysis for a feature . Application needs to give a poke call(with a ringing) to various phones.

            A central application needs to send an event based poke call to its registered skype users.So this requires an API integration with Skype. Application will receive an external event and initiates a poke call to one of the registered users. This could be a bulk or single call.Is it possible to play pre-recorded file to users in case poke call is picked.All registered users are data users on 4G and application is hosted on cloud.

            • Enable access to Enterprise Custom Fields of Project in Office.js

              Currently we can't read or write enterprise custom fields that are defined on a project server or in project online. We only can write the predefined local custom Fields like Text1.

              For enterprise scenarios like integrating with SAP or other ERP systems it is essential being able to read/write enterprise custom fields.

              With VBA and VSTO this is possible, but those technologies are outdated by good reason, but closing the gap is essential to get rid of VBA and VSTO. Access to Enterprise Custom Fields is a major gap.

              • Enable a view to see all tasks for each channel on one page in planner

                Currently if I have more than 1 channel within a team and have a planner page within each channel with tasks I can only see one channel at a time in planner thus only seeing the tasks assigned for that 1 channel. I would like to be able to see all the tasks for a team in one space so that I can see how many different tasks each member of my team has across channels etc.

                    • 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…
