  1. Power Automate transfer function

    ☆ It would be nice to add a setting that allows you to specify a transfer-prohibited address or domain.
    ☆ It is hoped that Power Automate can take over the transport rules of Exchange Online.

  2. Fix GeneralExceptions being thrown when multiple Excel instances are opened

    Sometimes when more than one workbook is opened, then a:
    GeneralException: There was an internal error while processing the request
    is thrown during various office-js operations.

    See https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js/issues/771 for details.

    I know there's a workaround:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/excel/force-excel-to-open-new-instance
    but it's impossible to force clients to use it.

  5. Office Add-ins should run in Chromium-based Edge, not EdgeHTML

    At the moment addins run in EdgeHTML

    Recently Chromium-based Edge has been released which is much faster than EdgeHTML

    Add-ins should run in new, Chromium-based Edge.

    Will it be "just done" at the next Windows update?

    Similar to previous suggestion:

  7. Add support for Document.getFileAsync method in Volume licensed versions of Office Excel

    I am attempting to use the Document.getFileAsync method in Office Excel 2016 on Windows. Executing the method fails with an "Permission Denied" error.

    Error code: 7000
    Error name: "Permission Denied"
    Error message: "You don't have sufficient permissions for this action."

    This functionality is critical to our Add-in and we have many customers that use this 2016 volume licensed version of Office. They are not able to upgrade since the version is locked down at 16.0.4266.1001.

  9. Allow displayMessageForm to open itemId in same window

    Currently displayMessageForm method is opening the message pointed by itemId in a new window.

    It will be great if we could pass an option to the method Office.context.mailbox.displayMessageForm() that allows to replace the current visualized message with the new message indicated in itemId.

    The use case that I want to enable here is to programmatically navigate with add-in javascript to arbitrary messages knowing their itemIds.

  11. Support for high DPI taskpanes

    Office now supports high-DPI and per-monitor DPI awareness, but custom task-panes do not. Add-in custom task panes are always hosted in a system aware host window and there is no way to indicate our add-in is high-DPI and multi-monitor DPI aware. Our customers therefore only see a low resolution user interface in the task panes. The Excel built-in task panes support high-DPI so this shouldn't be too difficult, maybe a registry setting indicating the add-in supports high-DPI or even an extra parameter to ICTPFactory.CreateCTP indicating support.

  12. Office.context.officeTheme to return dark/light theme in Outlook web app

    In desktop Outlook app you can set dark/light theme or follow system theme and you can read that value from Office.context.officeTheme so add-in color scheme would match the app.
    You can set dark theme in Outlook web app but the issue is that Office.context.officeTheme returns undefined.

  13. Allow administrators to pin Office Add-ins

    With the preview release of "the new Outlook" on OWA, Office Add-ins are now buried in the drop down context menu in an email. Additionally, it appears they do not follow the same behavior of Outlook on the desktop, where Office Add-ins will show in the larger ribbon if used more frequently.

    According to this article, Office Add-ins can be pinned if they are used frequently:

    If you were using add-ins in the classic Outlook on the web experience, they will show up pinned next to mail actions or in the drop-down menu once you open an email in the…

  15. Add Office.EventType.ItemChanging event for Outlook

    Adding Office.EventType.ItemChanging event will greatly help add-in developers to write robust code to handle changing mail items.

    With a ItemChanging event that fires before Office.context.mailbox.item changes to the new context, we can write cleaner transition state logic, avoiding operations meant for previous item from bleeding into the next item.

  17. Custom task pane header in Microsoft Outlook addin

    There should be option to disable or hide Addin icon and title in taskpane/sidepane header?

    Or there should be an option to customize header of sidepane/taskpane like setting background image or custom font in header?

  19. Be able to create tasks using the JavaScript API

    I would love to be able to create tasks from my Outlook web add in using Office.js based on information retrieved from our servers.
    Being able to launch a form for the users, something like Office.context.mailbox.displayNewTaskForm, like how you can use displayNewMessageForm, or displayNewAppointmentForm would be useful.

  20. Trying to save a blob file in Outlook for macOS using javascript

    Ok so I have a Blob file that I'm trying to save on local disk (the Blob is created locally from an ArrayBuffer). The problem I'm facing is that Outlook for macOS does not want to open a FileSaverDialog or something similar to let the user save the file.

    My code is working perfectly in Outlook for Web (OWA) on all browsers (including Safari) and Outlook for Windows.

    const blob = new Blob([body]); //body is an ArrayBuffer created locally
    const link = document.createElement('a');
    if (link.download !== undefined) {

    const url = URL.createObjectURL(blob);
    
    link.setAttribute('href', url);
    link.setAttribute('download', fileName);
    link.style.visibility = 'hidden';
    document.body.appendChild(link);
