  1. add optional/mandatory/required option to other Office Apps through Central Deployment

    Using Central Deployment, you can only set the options of optional/mandatory/required when deploying an Outlook add-in. This feature would be useful for other Office Applications too.

    We have an internally developed add-in that it would make sense to make available to all employees and announce it's availability. Only those employees that have a need for it would add it to their Office environment. This is more consistent with VBA/COM add-in behavior where they can uncheck and check them when needed.

    The current solution we are investigating is to create a software center package that when installed adds a user to…

  2. expose Notes in the Excel JavaScript API as an alternative to Comments

    Comments are useful when you expect other authors to review or respond to the information. Notes are still useful when you don't expect that same use.

    For our use case, we pull timeseries values into the Excel spreadsheet but are expected to add observation level metadata as notes to those values, so as not to disrupt the actual data grid. We have tried with the current Comment API however it pollutes the Comment Review with potentially tens of thousands of comments that are not meant for collaboration.

    I've also noticed others say you can't add Notes in the iPad version…

  3. Update Outlook Actionable Messages to latest version of Adaptive Cards

    Adaptive Cards is on v1.3 and has a lot of cool features.

    From the Adaptive Cards playground, and independent testing it seems only v1.0 of Adaptive Cards is supported.

    Would like to see Outlook Actionable Messages updated to support the latest version of Adaptive Cards (currently 1.3)

  4. Ability to open display form in current window without opening via pop-up/dialog window

    Ability to open display form in current window without opening via pop-up/dialog window for :
    displayNewMessageForm
    displayReplyAllForm
    displayReplyForm.

    Will be great to have boolean parameter to manage a behavior.
    This feature is good to avoid the issue with add-ins into dialog window for New Outlook UI

  5. Dialog window has to support add-ins for the New Mac UI

    Our clients are using new Outlook design 16.42 (20101102)
    Our Add-in uses functions: reply/replyAll/forward they open Dialog window(pop-up) and this window does not support add-ins.
    This is really critical issue, because our clients use pinned panel of add-ins to complete their workflow.

  8. Allow aliases to be assigned to specific cells, then display those aliases in formulas that refer to them

    I'd like to be able to assign aliases to specific cells, then (optionally) display those aliases in formulas that refer to them. This would be akin to assigning variable names to those contents, so that it's easier to track what is being referred to in formulas which aren't anywhere near them in the spreadsheet (and make it easier to understand the spreadsheet when I'm first being exposed to it).

  9. Provide support for Onsend Addin and Api requirement set 1.8 in New Mac UI.

    New Mac UI available from version 16.42 does not support Onsend Addin and Api requirement set 1.8 which is very critical for our DLP solution to work.

  13. Delete comments in the selected area

    Hello,

    In Excel Online, we can select a range of the cells, right-click on it, and delete the comments that are located in this area. Is it possible to reproduce the same behavior using excel js API? If we apply context.workbook.comments.getItemByCell to a cell that has no comments, an error occurs. If we try to add a comment to a cell that already has a comment, an error occurs too.

    Could you add a method that allows us to delete comments in the range? Something like the getItemByCellOrNullObject method for handling comments or similar method to help avoid these inconveniences…

  18. Lost access to my MS 365 Developer dashboard

    Hi,

    I created my Developer profile with my xxx@example.com account (this is an example ! The real account is in my uservoice profile) but I have migrated this account from one tenant (yyy.onmicrosoft.com / custom domain example.com) to another after that (zzz.onmicrosoft.com with custom domain example.com).

    Then, I cannot access my developer profile page anymore with the same UPN since the account has changed.

    I contacted Office support and they redirected to developer support (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/support/).

    I contacted developer support and they redirected me to https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/office/docs#officecommunity

    Who can help me and how can I get my Office developer dashboard…

  19. Please use the monoline icons in File Explorer

    There are so many icons that don't necessarily need a higher resolution (for backwards compatibility) but need a new design.
