  1. OneNote WebApi for On Premisis Offce Web App Server

    When developing on Premises enterprise Web applications there is a need to integrate Office Web Applications into them to provide additional functionality where data privacy is critical (for example through legislation).

    For this reason enterprises often cannot utilise Azure hosted solutions such as OneNote online, but must use on-premises servers (an example is Office Web App server which provides in-browser support for Office Applications in SharePoint).

    While it is possible to create a windows desktop application that can use the OneNote COM API provided by a locally installed copy of OneNote, it appears not to be possible to provide the…

    • I'd like to have a Task Pane or area like in Mail that activates within the View Contact view or Edit Contact view.

      In the past I've enhanced the users experience in contacts using a custom form/form region and would like to expand that to the contacts in Office 365.

      • Expose the Capability Name, ServiceUri and ServiceResourceIds in the DiscoveryContext class

        The Office 365 API exposes the "/services" endpoint, which returns a collection of service Uri endpoints. However, the DiscoveryContext class does not expose the collection, rather it looks up a specific endpoint based on a capability name that is passed into the method (ServiceResourceId or Capability name).

        I would like a method that returns the collection of CapabilityDiscoveryResults. Alternatively, add an Enum to the library to aid in the selection of Capability/ServiceResourceId.

        • Make the store page for each app more user-friendly.

          The front page to the new store looks fantastic, it's nice, user-friendly and very intuitive. But that redesign doesn't extent to the page for each app.

          When you click on an app, the page for each app is messy. It should be redesigned to encourage users to explore the screenshots, read the description and instructions, click relevant video, and ultimately add the app.

            • Deprecate localisation of Excel function names

              Many ages ago someone in the USA got the *GREAT* idea to localize the names of Excel functions. She probably wanted to please international users from all over the world: why a user from Czechoslovakia should learn a new term "SUM"when he knows "SUMA" from school... And why the foreigner should learn "VALUE" when he knows "HODNOTA" in his language. Well so far so good. But the Czech guy says and writes word "text" exactly the same as his English colleague. God knows why she (the MS person in America) suddenly translated the function "TEXT" as "HODNOTA.NA.TEXT" in the Czech…

              • On Office App store search results page, show Provider field in app details.

                On the search result page for Office Apps, show the provider field of each App.

                e.g. https://store.office.com/search.aspx?productgroup=SharePoint&catfltr=6&category=Editor%2527s%2BPicks

                Can't tell which apps are made by Microsoft and which ones are made by which partner.

                • Provide at least two licenses in O365 Developer Pack

                  You can't test user permissions and other things with a single admin user. Running as admin isn't really best practice when developing. Agreed?

                  • Over a certain threshold return a URL to download the Attachment contents

                    Instead of returning an enormous base64 string in JSON that has to be streamed by some event-based json parser, make things easy.

                    For under 32K inline it
                    For over 32k provide an endpoint

                    response could be (inline)

                    {
                    inline: true
                    content: (base64)

                    }

                    or not inline

                    {
                    inline: false
                    content: 'http:xxxx/streamingservice.com/attachments/3293929349d"

                    • Merge Apps for Office and Sharepoint API (Ewa namespace) and Office 2013 JS API

                      Is there a reason why you would not provide a common base for the two API's?
                      The Ewa namespace offers a lot of functionality requested in many ideas related to the Offie 2013 API - it seems you already have the code and the interface in the Ewa namespace ?

                      • Allow better viewing of subtasks

                        When there are tasks that are subtasks it is difficult for users that are given a link or see it in their task list to know what the parent tasks is. When viewing the task in view or edit mode it would be helpful to see what the parent is or be able to easily link to it.

                        • Extend Office 365 Roadmap to Address Private Cloud Products

                          Whether or not Office 365 makes sense in a particular environment isn’t a given and in a lot of real-world cases, the subject matter of intense planning & debate. Unfortunately, we’re only afforded this easily understood roadmap for one half of the question that many customers have to ponder – Which path will they follow?

                          For many customers considering an on-premises / private cloud solution, it can be exceedingly difficult to fully understand where the functional differences are today, let alone where they’ll be tomorrow.

                          Having new or planned on-premises/private cloud features depicted in a similar roadmap would be an…

                              The JavaScript API for Office should be enhanced so developers have an event notifying if the current slide in the normal / edit mode is changed. This would allow for more contextual user interaction.

                                  • Create an Office 365 API for management of Exchange

                                    As best I can tell, Office 365 doesn't have a way to manage users / mailboxes directly via some kind of web service.

                                    This is extremely problematic when trying to integrate the system into existing account management procedures, which might well not be running on Windows.

                                    See my post at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19666200/how-can-i-create-an-exchange-mailbox-in-exchange-2010-from-python-perl

                                    • Discovery Service -- allow addition of custom services

                                      The O365 discovery service allows me to get the Inbox/Calendar/etc. service endpoint for a given user. I want the ability to extend that to include endpoints for my organization (Expense Report app/Timesheet app/etc).

                                      • Office Apps for all Clients Applications

                                        I saw a lot of devs and customers being confused caused by the point that Apps are not available across all Office client applications. Especially OneNote would be a great benefit. OneNote is one of the best Apps I've ever used. Can't imagine my daily business without OneNote. We've collected several ideas which would enhance OneNote even more and make customer more productive.
