  1. Allow SP.UserCustomAction to be publish in the Office Store

    Microsoft Office Store dont allow to publish SharePoint App with Full-permission, but there is the need from Site Administrators to extend the Out of the box functionalities such us
    SP.UserCustomAction object (sp.js)
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj245920.aspx to the Site Administrators be able to add custom Actions/Ribbons and Script to their business in the Host Web Site.
    If this option can be done from the App Web to Host Web will avoid SharePoint Solution instalation "WSP" in Farms, the complexity of XML will be reduced and eficiency will increase (hours spent by Dev can be reduce in minutes)

      • Allow Office Add-in Manifest to be published to and hosted by a web server

        The basic request is to support Office Add-in installation from a standard web server (via http or https), in addition to the existing locations: 1) Office Store, 2) network share, or 3) Sharepoint server.

        For details about my requirements, please see forum thread:

        • Sanely allow Apps for Office deployment to a local computer

          Developing my first App for Office (specifically Excel) was an experience I found to be unnecessarily difficult. The Trusted App Catalogs user interface in Excel:

          File -> Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings... -> Trusted App Catalogs

          Is a giant mess. There's no browse button - just a field to punch in a string that has to be formatted a specific way and only allows network shares and SharePoint remote servers. First off, I was expecting to see a checkbox to "Allow manifest files from untrusted locations" that would then open up a way to select a XML…

          • The Office mobile apps should be completelly free with not needing an Office 365 account for editing documents

            Hello Friends of Microsoft I still believing that if you want to prosper and be successful in a world of piracy you should make your Office mobile suite completely free having the document edition enabled by free even on big screen PCs because the Office mobile apps has less functions tan the desktop versión and you are selling it at full Price, a practice wich does not go with your new philosophies and ways of doing things

            Also maybe if you enable the editing of documents without Office 365 subscription you could use the Office 365 subscription to offer exclusive…

              • Deploy particular version of App for Office/Office Add-In

                Moving from VSTO, etc. to Apps for Office/Office Add-Ins customers have expressed concern that if I (the developer) deploy an app and they start using the app that they will no longer have control over when they update to the latest version of the app.

                For instance say I deploy version 1 to the Office Store and the companies A and B install the add-in for all their employees. When I'm ready to deploy version 2, company A might be ready while company B might not. I'd like a way for companies (and ideally individuals as well) to be able…

                • Fix issues with trial to paid transition for office apps users (users locked in trial mode after buying apps)

                  We keep getting reports and complaints from users that buy our apps but seem to be locked in trial mode. Receiving 1/2 reports a day. We checked that we are receiving trial tokens in the app, but users confirm that they bought the apps. Some are able to reset somehow, but most can't.

                  This error is also described here (see first review by Rod):

                    It's a pain to identify manually all Apps that are currently offering an update. Users should see a badge on the App Launcher as soon as an update is available.

                    • Remove App version field from office store submission form

                      Currently when you submit an app to office store, you have to enter app version, this has to match the version defined in manifest, this seems redundant to me, can we remove this field from the submission form. App manifest describes the version of the app and having to enter it again during submission seems redundant to me additionally the app validation fails when they don't match, don't believe this is called out anywhere in policy, I could be wrong.

                            We would like to be able to publish Add-Ins accessible to specific user groups in multiple companies (where internal distribution is not possible via SharePoint, O365 Admin Center, or network share). Including such Add-Ins in the public Store listing is not appropriate. Perhaps invited users would access the add-in Store page via a URL link.

                              Currently, its not possible to open files (encoded with a key on the PC-version) on smartphones with the Office App. You have to use another App to do that.

                              It would be nice to make that work.

                              • Fix the grammatical error in the Visio 2013 user interface

                                In the search result for "Shapes" in Microsoft Visio 2013, there are links that say "More results..." and "Less results...".

                                My search returned 21 results. I can count them. Clear as day. Yet the link at the bottom says "Less results...". I am sure that anyone who appreciates correct English would agree that this link should say "Fewer results...".

                                Dictionary.com offers this advice about "Less" vs. "Fewer": If you can count it, go for fewer (http://blog.dictionary.com/fewer-vs-less/).

                                I'm sure that it's embarrassing for Microsoft to have this grammatical error as part of their Office suite of products and should…

                                  • Add-in not loading in catalog if it contains European language character in office 2016

                                    TaskPaneApp manifest works fine loading from"office 365 app Catalog" site with English character in description and name.
                                    But when I add German or any other European characters it stop loading from the catalog; basically it does not render in "My Add-ins" >> "My Organization" apps. it works fine with Word 2013 but does not work with word 2016.

                                    Encoding for the manifest file is "unicode (utf-8 with signature) - codepage 65001"

                                    Seems to be bug around encoding.

                                    • Provide access to app validation reports

                                      Currently you can only see the app validation report for your last submission, if you've had multiple submissions there is no history available. Make it work similar to windows store and windows phone seller portal

                                      • Add sort/filter capability to app store.

                                        Right now I get 10's to 100's of app results for a particular category. I'd like to be able to sort those results by 'most popular' (most added?), 'highest rated', cost (free/not free), etc. It's just a shimorgizboard of stuff right now, and makes me dread finding an app or building an app. I want users to find my app because it's the best (i.e. ratings), but they cannot do that with the current interface functionality. Right now my app would just be lost in the sea of other app's, so where's the developer incentive to build an awesome, low-cost…

                                          Your site is popping up in the middle of what I'm attempting to do and THAT is very frustrating
