  1. Provide a feature which gives a list of all styles in Word in Office JS

    Can you please provide a feature which gives a list of all styles in word in Office JS ? This will definitely fill up the gap between Office JS and VSTO

    Santosh, thank you for your suggestions. We really appreciate it.

    Listing all styles in the document is a gap in the Word API and we’re reviewing this suggestion right now. We’ll keep you posted.

    Regarding the Excel suggestion, we request you open another request under Excel Addins to track this item. This would enable voting for this item individually as well.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Handling Save event in Calendar App

    We are working on a calendar application, the requirement is that we would like do certain operations in our app when user press save button on an appointment. Currently there is no such API available for hooking into SAVE event. It would be really helpful if we have that option available.

  4. getSelectedDataAsync & getBodyAsync should be implemented for mail item.

    We are building a calendar app where we need to read the information from the appointment body and process it. In the current API we only have setSelectedDataAsync on body not the getSelectedDataAsync.
    We would like to have getSelectedDataAsync so that we can complete the application flow.

    It would also be really nice if we can get another method getBodyAsync which returns the entire body content, there are many usages of this in our app.

  5. Provide access to a user identity object in apps for Office (specifically: Access)

    It is currently not possible to retrieve the current user identity in apps for Office. I realize that this is rather useless for Task Pane apps in Word/Excel/PowerPoint, but it is VERY useful for Mail and Access content apps. It is required if you want to save the refresh token securely to know which user is talking to your app backend.

  6. Allow to change content app size using api

    Usually Excel Online and app for Office are on the different domains, so we can not access parent window document. Ability to control application size would improve usability a lot.

  7. Want to open the developer reference directly from Excel developer

    Hi,
    I want to open the developer reference directly from excel developer when it is open.
    Is there a way to do so by clicking only on the help (blue) button?
    Should I put the file I downloaded in a specific folder or do anything else?

  8. create a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity category in Seller Dashboard.

    PlanBcp is a disaster recovery and business continuity planning solution that promotes using Azure cloud technology in your plans. It would be nice if the Seller Dashboard had a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity category.

  9. Let Word support web font

    I'm developing a Word App which can add custom fonts(which are not installed yet) in Word.
    My idea is that to take the Word as a HTML page by using the JavaScript API for Office v1.1 (Office.context.document.setSelectedDataAsync). With the CSS font-family setting , ex:
    @font-face{font-family:fontname; src: url('http://xox.com/font/fontfile.eot');src: url('http://xox.com/font/fontfile.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),url('http://xox.com/font/fontfile.woff') format('woff');}
    and the HTML tag setting, ex: <span style='font-family:fontname;'>Here shows the custom fonts...</span>

    But the result is: Word accept the CSS style setting, but the web font style is not success. It still keeps the system font style.

    I suggest Word can support web font.

  12. Remove Changes Made by the Javascript API for Office from the Undo Stack

    I'm developing an app for Excel 2013. I have a binding, and I have an event tied to when text is updated in the binder. Text being updated fires the event which updates my sidebar app. This update causes my app to update a hidden column of 1s and 0s to control my conditional formatting, to highlight and unhighlight rows.

    The problem that I'm running into is that I have lost the ability to use the Undo command. When I update a cell, the app instantly updates the conditional highlighting control column. I then can't update the change that I…

  13. Allow ripping out of workbooks/worksheets from Excel into a new window

    One of the most annoying parts of working with office is that the worksheets and workbooks still behave the same as they did in the 90s. I want to be able to rip out workbooks and worksheets into their own window, to better make use of my multi-monitor or wide-monitor setup.

  17. UI adaptation

    For a better integration of line-of-business-applications into the interface of Outlook it should be possible to customize the UI and the Ribbon such as using VSTO or COM add-ins development tools . So if Office. js has the functions e.g. to display custom regions in Outlook, which can be used to display web content as in action panes today, if will be a great step to migrate from existing VSTO / addin solutions to the new app model of office.

  18. Office 365 json api | send emails with inline image attachments

    I send the description my team is having with the json integration with Office API 365.

    We want to send an email with inline attachments through the JSON API.

    With that objective, what we are doing:


    1. Create an empty draft message;

    2. Send the several inline attachments;

    3. Update the body of the draft message (with cid images inline);

    4. Send the message;

    What is are our issue with the API?

    We are unable to set the "ContentType" properties when we submit the attachments to the Office API 365.
    Despite the "ContentType" we send, it is always null.

    We are using the following…
