  1. Want to track how many users could not install our add-in by IT policy

    Want to track how many users couldn't install our Office (Outlook) add-in because of IT policy. If my team can see it in partner center acquisitions report, we can decide our next actions as following.


    • Many users (ex. over 50%) could not install it: My team needs to consider reaching end user's IT admin directly with seller team.

    • Not high volume of users (ex. under 10%) could not install it: We can continue to utilize office store and make more marketing effort.

    We made our own landing page and guide a user to Microsoft App Source. The user can click…

  3. add onSaved event for Word, Excel, PowerPoint office-js

    An event for every time the document is saved, another important scenario to catch the save event would be when the user closes the word app and there is a prompt to save the file if it is already not saved, this saving event should also be fired in the add-in.

  4. Fix the Excel add-in AppSource distribution channel on Mac

    The web store 'Open In Excel' button does not work for Mac users. Excel indicates that it is downloading some file but then nothing happens. I'm sure expected behavior is that the workbook opens and installs the add-in to Excel. Here is a video showing this, on Excel v16.40:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MqlZyqhYe9MfOzJN_sjpFwyPHOn4LuPD/view?usp=sharing

    I became aware of this issue because some of our customers have contacted us, asking why the add-in wasn't working. Who knows how many potential customers we have lost because they simply thought the add-in wasn't supported on their system and moved on. Very frustrating, please fix this.

  5. Enable Private Betas in AppSource

    Currently there is no effective/easy way to facilitate a private beta for Office Add-ins. As a result, new apps can often get bad ratings before useful feedback can be gathered from users. Add support for private beta programs for new and new version apps eg. Office Add-in apps in AppSource.

  6. Health status indicators for the Office Store or App Marketplace

    An idea for this feature comes from the current issue with migration from the Seller Dashboard into the Microsoft Partner Center, which was a complete Microsoft disaster from a system reliability perspective. We have apps in the Office Store and for over 8 days the customers cannot download or update apps from the Office Store, it's a Microsoft issue related to app migration to the Partner Center. Could you imagine that the Apple Store or Google Play totally doesn't work for over 7 days? Complete cut-off from important hotfixes for critical business apps? That's happened with the Office Store... As…

  8. The computer and printer are connected via USB and using iOS to print wirelessly needs to be connected.

    Wireless LAN and the SSID of the network that the mobile terminal is connected to can be checked in [Auto Search] > [To Set Printer Wireless LAN].

  9. Secure Office version needed

    We need a secure Office version which does not phone home or access sites outside of our network. We are a financial institution. Cloud based Office application of Office data files won't work for us.

  11. Notify about the submission status

    I submitted my connector to your store but forgot to add an icon,
    would be nice if there was an option to cancel the submission.

    Would be great to know the estimated review waiting list and timing.

  12. Improve the processing of UK post codes in forms.

    Improve the processing of UK post codes in forms. When ordering MS Office through the HUP programme, I was told that my postcode was incorrect. I'd initially entered it in lower-case. Then I tried in upper-case. Then I tried upper-case with a space in the middle. Eventually, that worked. I think that the form should be intelligent enough to know that eh13eg is the same as EH1 3EG. Especially when the error message isn't helpful in explaining what it objects to.

  14. Allow whitelisting of Office Add-Ins in the store for enterprise customers.

    Allow whitelisting of Office Add-Ins in the store for enterprise customers for their end-users. At the moment they only can block access to the store and use 'central deployment'.

  15. Support for embedding Office.js manifest inside workbook

    Currently, the workbook has to have a reference to a manifest stored elsewhere. Managing the manifest in a catalog is inconvenient.

    Please provide the support for embedding the manifest in the workbook directly so that the solution is self-contained.

    In particular, the source location and app domains are the key elements to include in the workbook.

    We are not asking for any special API to embed this information. Just publish the schema for the xml parts.

    The key ask here is that Excel be able to read this information from inside the workbook and load the Office.js (Excel) add-in without…

  16. 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:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/5b8cf52b-4fa3-4fc4-8d25-caf05a442f15/can-i-host-my-addins-manifest-on-a-web-server?forum=appsforoffice

  17. Provide a version of Excel in Azure

    When files get big or complex we need a bigger computer to run them. That is expensive and cumbersome. It would really be helpful to be able to run Excel in Azure Virtual Machines to do big processing jobs.

  20. Create a way to post feedback and ideas for AppSource

    WHY IS THERE NO WAY TO POST IDEAS ON APPSOURCE? You just deprecated the Office Store this week ( 9-25-17) and sent a message to post feedback here. But there is no way to do so... Please add the ability to post ideas related to AppSource... Things like being able to sell solutions in AppSource, cross selling if you have more than 1 listing, tiered pricing, qnd localized marketing assistance to name a few ideas.
