    • Support clearing values in Graph API

      According to this statement http://stackoverflow.com/questions/38249131/how-to-clear-a-field-using-using-microsoft-graph-net-client-library

      it is currently not possible to clear "simple" fields of Objetcts via Microsoft Graph (Group.Description, User.Surname ...)

      Would be great if this was supported.

          • Access and manipulate non-rich text content controls

            Currently I can only access non rich text content controls via ooxml. This is very cumbersome and error prone. It would be great if I could access items in dropdowns, checkbox values, or comboboxes without having to add the functionality in parsing ooxml.

            • Create Word Comments via Office API

              Hi,

              Could you add functionality to create Word comments via the Office API?

              I know have a proof of concept, named Feedback+, in the store where we create comments into a word document. But this has a bug. It creates a paragraph everytime someone creates a comment in the document.

              Thanks,

              JW

              • Add ItemSend event (so add-in can cancel email)

                Would like to have an ItemSend event in the web API just like the regular API does. Is that on the planning stage for future releases?

                • Linked images using <img> tags in Word desktop don't roundtrip to Word Online

                  I'm developing an add-in for Word 2016 and online Word.

                  In it, on the desktop version of Word, if I insert html content using document.setSelectedDataAsync with an image tag and URL to an image on our server, the image displays on the desktop version of Word. If I save the same file to OneDrive and show it on the online version of Word, the image does not display. If I wrap the image in an <a> tag with a link, the link shows up when I hover over the image in the online version of Word, but the image never…

                  • Make Outlook/Mail Universal App supporting Office add-ins

                    The Universal App Mail (Outlook mobile) is definitely used a lot and is a solid candidate for being the mobile friendly Outlook client people were looking for.
                    Unfortunately, the version 17.6525.42271.0 does not support office add-ins. I did not see a roadmap indicating it will be, but that would be a huge plus. Now the only mobile approach to consume add-ins is with a fallback with Outlook Web Access.

                    • Any way to get current active page for Word document while read data (for selected text)

                      i did not found any way to get current active page while reading data from Word document using Office AddIns API (JS).

                      So while my content is to large for search then i can move (scroll) document to that page from where this text (paragraph) was selected

                        • Provide additional features around Exchange Permissions.

                          This request is multi-part:

                          - Provide a way to find what/where a particular user has access and to what permissions level, both for administrators and to the end user without a resource intensive powershell script (today's method).

                          - Provide a built-in Permissions Administrator RBAC role that limits the administrators ability to only manage permissions (Access and Sending Rights) to a user or group. Provide them with a limited ECP view. No access to content, just Rights Management.

                          - Provide a Permissions Troubleshooting tool via the Remote Connectivity Analyzer.

                          • getSelectedDataAsync for Powerpoint shapes

                            getSelectedDataAsync only return text string (if there is text in selected shape). Would be great to return more info of selected shape, perhaps in OOXML/HTML form, or at least a shape ID.

                              When inserting a file from a base64 string into the body with the method "InsertFileFromBase64()" it does not include continious section breaks. It uses page breaks instead. It would be nice to have those working also.

                                      Using office app javascript API, It would be very useful if you add an option to navigate using the bookmark name

                                      • Grow/shrink Word table containing ContentControls when mapped XML changes

                                        In Word, table rows mapped to custom XML part don't get updated correctly when the XML changes. The table doesn't adapt the the number of items. In other words, when the XML has X items mapped to a repeatable row, the table doesn't grow to accommodate the X items.

                                        • A Single call to get events from all users calendars (default and others) using office 365 API

                                          It will be nice if Office 366 API expose a single call to return all events from Users calendars.
                                          Instead of, first getting all calendars to know the Ids, then for each calendar make another all to get events by passing Calendar ID
