  1. Allow PowerPoint Add-In to create new Slide

    Add support for the Add-In to create a new slide in the presentation. A possible use case would be to support the ability for an add-in to insert template marketing slides. A sales person needs to create a new presentation. The add-in pulls the latest marketing slide from a repository and adds them to the presentation ensuring that the sales person is always using the latest slides

    • Support the Importing of slides in PowerPoint

      I would like to be able to provide an add-in that could insert slides into a presentation. This is a similar concept to the Word Clause library. To provide maximum flexibility to the dev I would suggest using the Ooxml coercionType. Both Get and Set would be ideal

        • 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.

              • Support HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled property on Groups

                If want to hide o365 Group using HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled property from Outlook and discovery, the Graph still returns all "hided" Groups. Could you at least return that property with Groups data so we can hide certain Groups withing our apps?

                • Issue with allowExternalSenders property in groups

                  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.

                  • Fill Users DisplayName in /planner/Tasks

                    If you are requesting the Graph-explorer with the following URL:
                    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/planner/tasks

                    The following result is given:
                    {
                    "@odata.context": "https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/$metadata#Collection(microsoft.graph.plannerTask)",
                    "@odata.count": 1,
                    "value": [
                    {

                    "user": {
                    "displayName": null,

                    ........

                    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

                    • Allow filter on target of a navigation collection for users and groups

                      Enable filtering and casting on the target for a navigation collection. For example "get the users that are members of a group, even though the group contains users, groups and service principals. Additionally allow me to do things like find all the members of this group that are in "sales" department.

                        Facebook's GraphQL is the perfect API solution for the Microsoft Graph. I highly encourage you to implement this, since it would improve development for React apps.

                              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…

                                • Wrapping OOXML APIs Needed - insertComment, insertBookmark, insertOoxmlFragment

                                  The API makes it very very difficult to wrap content in the underlying OOXML with additional OOXML.

                                  SUGGESTION: It would be great if there were a range.insertComment, range.insertBookmark that worked exactly like range.insertContentControl does! Or please give us a method to get the current OOXML fragment represented by a range. I'm trying to insert bookmarks and I've seen others trying to insert comments, around the selected text. The getOoxml() methods are great if you're writing copy/paste functionality, but that doesn't help you if you're trying to manipulate/wrap the fragment.

                                  • 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.

                                      • Support Regex (regular expressions) via Search javascript API

                                        context.document.body.search and range.search do not accept regular expressions (regex) as search patterns. The current wildcard language that is supported is far less capable. We have documents with lots of patterns that we look for via regular expressions and currently that is not possible with the javascript API. Please consider adding support for that.
