    Make it possible to use setSelectedDataAsync with data type “HTML” and “Office Open XML” in PowerPoint. Currently it is only Word that can use data type “HTML” and “Office Open XML”.

    • client-side ribbon manipulation

      I'd like to see the ability to register ribbon items (tabs and their children) dynamically on the client-side via my app or some tenant scoped javascript that I can register (needs to work with SharePoint Online and should not block submittal to the store). Right now the only way to register a ribbon item of any sort is to do so during the app installation which doesn’t allow us to extend the ribbon over time (either with our own service adding items or by allowing the user to add their own items via an app or whatever).

      • Add keyboard shortcut

        In all previous versions of MS Word I used ability to assign keyboard shortcut to a macro. However JavaScript API for Office seems to not support this. It is so strange and unexpected.
        Unfortunately absence of this feature is a blocker for me to develop custom plugins for Word 2013 online. Could be great to have it back!

        • Allow edits made by Office.js API functions (setDataAsync et. al.) to be 'undone' with Ctrl-z

          Right now, an app makes changes to the sheet, there's no way for the user to undo those changes (or their previous changes).

              • Add timestamps to events received via web-hooks

                Please could you add a timestamp showing the time an event was generated. Currently you have the following:

                ```
                {
                "value": [
                {
                "subscriptionId":"<subscription_guid>",
                "subscriptionExpirationDateTime":"2016-03-19T22:11:09.952Z",
                "clientState":"secretClientValue",
                "changeType":"created",
                "resource":"users/{user_guid}@<tenant_guid>/messages/{long_id_string}",
                "resourceData":
                {
                "@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Graph.Message",
                "@odata.id":"Users/{user_guid}@<tenant_guid>/Messages/{long_id_string}",
                "@odata.etag":"W/\"CQAAABYAAADkrWGo7bouTKlsgTZMr9KwAAAUWRHf\"",
                "id":"<long_id_string>"
                }
                }
                ]
                }
                ```

                But adding a timestamp would help us order events accurately. Something like..

                "createdAt" : "2016-03-19T22:11:09.952Z"

                would be very helpful! Thanks.

                • Add support for webhook at site collection level inclusive of events in sub sites etc.

                  Customer want Office 365 SharePoint Online to support webhook so it can push events to 3rd party security vendors to perform real-time inspection on the files go to SharePoint online.

                  The subscription for SharePoint can only be hooked to drive level. We need to create subscription for every drive in every site or subsite. This is a bad solution for our production.

                  Early we use Event Receiver in CSOM API. We can add event receiver to the site collection and all the sites/sub-sites in this site collection will be hooked. We can get the file events and protect the user’s…

                  • Graph API: Add OData $filter support for Planner Tasks (e.g. /me/planner/tasks)

                    Currently it's not possible to filter tasks using the Microsoft Graph REST endpoints for Planner.

                    E.g. this does NOT work, but should:

                    https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/planner/tasks?$filter=percentComplete eq 0

                    Currently the filter parameter will be ignored, all tasks are returned instead.

                          You can currently retrive the "Hyperlink or Picture" column from SharePoint but you have no clue of the field type.

                            I saw that setting allowExternalSenders property through POST/PATCH method is currently not working with v1.0 and beta. Do you plans for making it work any time soon? It is very tedious to set it manually through the UI.

                              The problem is, that the "displayName" in the User Object in createdBy or completedBy is always null.

                              Please fill the displayName Property of the User Objects.

                              Thanks

Our users, among other thinks, uses Sharepoint Online and Skype for Bussiness Online. All of our users have his mailbox in an Exchange 2010 (on-premise), so they don't have the Exchange Online Plan. For Skype for Bussiness integration with Outlook, it's needed that the mail attribute on the Azure AD object be the same as the mail address in Outlook.

                                  • Allow Office.js api to save documents as read only

                                    I posted this question @ http://stackoverflow.com/questions/39919312/office-js-saving-word-document-as-read-only

                                    And got the answer that it's not currently possible.

                                    Basically my problem is that I would like the word document to match what the pdf is like in our service. It could get confusing for the user if he thinks he can add text to the word document since it will NOT get updated at our end.

                                    • Get all Styles in Office 365 Word Document

                                      With office 365 word add-in development it is not possible to get all existing styles in a word document using word JavaScript API with as strongly type object of the API. The only way is using ooxml document. But the problem is this ooxml file size depend on the size of the word document. For an example, for 4-5 simple word paragraphs, ooxml size is nearly 13-15 pages. So it is very difficult to process styles in a large document using this ooxml. In VB and VBA, we can get all used styles through the API. So could you please…

                                      • Support custom colors for highlightColor in Word

                                        It seems that setting `font.highlightColor` only supports couple of basic colors even though the docs don't explicitly mention any limitations. Any other color used seems to be converted to closest basic color.
                                        This is quite limiting especially that the basic Word highlight colors are mostly dark and very unsuitable for highlighting black on white text.

                                        • Allow access to page margins

                                          Currently there is no direct way to access page margins in the Word JS API. If I want to insert a new document into the file, it maintains the page margins of the current document.
