  1. Planner Task Change Notifications or Delta Query

    I would like to be notified when tasks are created, updated or deleted in the graph api change notifications. Alternatively delta queries would be helpful in creating a standup-feed of information that has changed since the last meeting.

        • Add $filter support for OneDrive for Business

          When requesting the children of a OneDrive for Business folder through the Microsoft Graph API, adding a $filter query parameter is currently not supported.

          Repro:
          https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/drive/root/children?$filter=folder ne null

          Result:
          {
          "error": {
          "code": "notSupported",
          "message": "The request is not supported by the system.",

          }
          }
          }

          Please add support for filtering.

            • Outlook REST API 2 Mark Message as Junk / Spam

              Hello,
              I've tried Googling it, but to no avail, so I am here asking for solution to this (seemingly) straightforward question: How do you mark a message as 'Junk' using Outlook REST API 2.0 ? Currently, the API documentation link does not provide any help in this, only thing I could do is as follows, which basically "moves" a message from Inbox to Junk Email, not really ideal.
              .
              Please see my StackOverflow question, where it is suggested I add it to this forum.
              .
              http://stackoverflow.com/questions/40208579/outlook-rest-api-2-mark-message-as-junk-spam
              .
              Regards.

              • Extend Word Javascript api to close the editing window

                In a workflow scenario (not sharepoint workflow, something custom) where we want to have a button in a Word Add-In taskpane to close the Word Online window after saving the file. In this button we initiate a next workflow step by saving the document, initiate the next step by e.g. setting a flag in sharepoint and closing the document editing session of the user.

                This could either be an office general api or a word specific api (this is where we need it the most).

                • Provide an API for SharePoint tasks OR return My Tasks (MyTasks.aspx)

                  It appears that office 365 has had the My Tasks page removed from the News Feed (previously at https://CompanyName-my.sharepoint.com/personal/UserName_CompanyName_onmicrosoft_com/AllTasks.aspx) As a result there is no place to get a consolidated view of tasks. As of July, 2016 there are three types of Office 365 tasks:

                  1. Exchange / Outlook tasks. These are accessible via the interface using the Tasks tile that takes you to https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?realm=contoso.com&exsvurl=1&ll-cc=1033&modurl=3

                  2. Groups tasks that are reachable via the Planner tile at the URL https://tasks.office.com/?auth_pvr=OrgId&auth_upn=user@contoso.com&mkt=en-US. You can view them grouped by Project (Group) or consolidated.

                  3. Sharepoint tasks that are reachable by going to…

                  • Invoke built-in ribbon commands from Javascript

                    We are able to invoke a built-in Ribbon command in VBA by using:

                    Application.CommandBars.ExecuteMso(“Copy”)

                    Could we have a way to invoke built-in functionality from Javascript

                    • Provide an Add-in IDE inside Office applications with macro recorder

                      Do you want to popularize Office JS Add-in development? Why don't you do as you did with VBA? There is a macro recorder and the VBE (VBA's IDE).
                      Anyone with a regular Office instalation can be a "developer" - just press Alt+F11 and start coding. This is a great incentive for begginer programmers.
                      If you recluse Office JS programming to Visual Studio it'll be no use even if the framework is great, because there'll be no adoption by the community.
                      You have to tease your customers' mind so he'll get addicted in macro recording and will want to learn more…

                        Recently we got an option to insert task panes using add-in commands which is really nice feature. It would be very useful to have an option to insert content panes in Excel, Word and Power Point as well.

                        • Add worksheet activate/deactivate; workbook shutdown events to the Office Add-in Javascript APIs

                          The enhanced Excel-specific APIs available for developing Office Add-ins that run with Excel 2016 are a nice start. There are some key missing APIs. One area in need of extending is eventing. For workbooks that contain multiple worksheets, it is critical for the Add-in to be able to determine when a worksheet is activated/deactivated so that the Add-in's UI can adapt accordingly. Similarly, the Office Add-in should be able to hook an event so that when the workbook gets closed/shut down (and maybe Saved), the Add-in can persist in-memory state into the workbook.

                          • Provide more information with the Binding.BindingDataChanged event (for Excel table bindings)

                            The current BindingDataChangedEventArgs object passed to the event handler for the Binding.BindingDataChanged event only contains properties for the binding that raised the event and the type of event. There is no specific information about what cells, columns, or rows in the table object were changed. When dealing with tables with many rows and columns and/or end-user gestures that edit/insert/delete many cells/rows/columns at once, this API is not very useful. Contrast this to the (Excel) COM APIs where, at least, the SheetChanged event provides a Range object that describes what was changed.

                              2. if you create a meeing in Outlook and you add "Room Mailboxes" as required or optional attendees, OL resolve those partecipants as Resources and you can no longer manage those elements.

                                • Office 365 SDK API - Class Library Reference

                                  The documentation on dev.office.com for the new SDK API reference is great for how to, but what's missing is class library documentation for the assemblies added in the various NuGet packages. For instance, I should be able to get to a page that for something like Microsoft.Office365.OutlookServices.OutlookServiceClient. Today I have to use a .NET reflection tool, the Object Browser in Visual Studio or write some code and see the IntelliSense to see what objects, methods & properties are available to me.

                                    Would be really useful for all students studying in international fields of their studies to be able to share their projects and presentations and be able to access or view other peoples' work. This would be linked with your Microsoft account and it would be nice to have a rating system for shared projects.

                                    Think about how much more effort students around the world would put on their projects when they are trying to achieve publicity and good grades online with their school projects. Now that we have Office for iPhone and iPad also the sharing of your documents straight…

                                    • Only fire BindingDataChange event when cell data changes

                                      Currently it fires on scroll or changing formatting or cell width or a bunch of other random situations. Additionally, it should probably only fire when the user actually changes something, not when I write something with the API

                                        • Excel Apps - Enable Data validation support

                                          Data Validation support is a key feature requirement for using Office Apps for OLTP systems.
                                          The main idea is to fill the gap between VSTO features and Office Apps. This will help in easy portability of VSTO based apps to Office apps.
