  1. PowerPoint API

    Build out the specific host PowerPoint API with near complete parity to the control that was available in VSTO add-ins for PowerPoint. We have an add-in we want to build out in the new Web Add-in platform, but can't due to the extremely limited capabilities of the current Office.js API. You've had years to work on it, at least be more forth coming with where things are in development.

  6. Drag and Drop

    As you are supporting so many document events for Getting and
    Setting the Data using office.js
    Hence we are developing office apps 90% code using Jquery and javascript,but not all the events are supported that supported by Jquery.

    I need some drag and drop kind facility for dropping "ooxml" kind of data to docuement.

  7. Allow administrators to pin Office Add-ins

    With the preview release of "the new Outlook" on OWA, Office Add-ins are now buried in the drop down context menu in an email. Additionally, it appears they do not follow the same behavior of Outlook on the desktop, where Office Add-ins will show in the larger ribbon if used more frequently.

    According to this article, Office Add-ins can be pinned if they are used frequently:

    If you were using add-ins in the classic Outlook on the web experience, they will show up pinned next to mail actions or in the drop-down menu once you open an email in the…

  10. Allow Outlook add-in commands to be used on selections of multiple items

    Currently an add-in command will disable if multiple Outlook mail items are selected. It would be really useful to be able run certain commands by iterating over a collection of the selected items.

  11. Improve Custom Dialog

    Please improve the dialog, it should allow to:
    - set modality (right now the dialog is not modal!)
    - have bidirectional communication, i.e. to have possibility to pass information directly from dialog to task pane and vice versa.

    There are many use cases valid for both requirements:
    - when you need to retrieve data from task pane (e.g. lazy loading)
    - you have html where you fill the content, right now you need to pass them in URL which is not really nice solution.

  13. Ability to open/replace workbook with Excel JS API in a similar way Word API can with insertFileFromBase64

    We have a requirement to load a workbook from a remote source from within the add-in. User logs in, selects from a list and workbook template loads.

    With the Word JS API we can load a template remotely using an AJAX call that returns the workbook as a base64 string and then insert the response into the current workbook using the replace option. AFAIK this doesn't exist for the Excel API and we download the workbook and then instruct the user to open from the download pane.

  14. Wildcard search and MatchWholeWord search doesn't work with tracked deletions

    At present, if there are tracked deletions within a word, that word will not be found by search if either MatchWholeWord or Wildcards are turned on. This is a bug in search, but it is especially crucial to fix for add-ins.

  17. Support dynamic content in Add-in commands ribbon dropdown menu

    It would be very useful if add-ins dropdown menu could contain dynamically generated items. Now the displayed content in the ribbon dropdown need to be hardcoded even for sub-menus which limit the capabilities of add-ins commands.

  18. Provide functionality for Outlook Add-In to automatically launch in the task pane

    Our very successful commercial Outlook add-in ePredict for SharePoint (http://ww3w.docauto.com/product/epredict-for-sharepoint) automatically launches its UI in the task pane in desktop versions of Outlook. Our customers are interested in a version for Office 365 Outlook online. However, Office 365 Outlook online requires user input to launch a task pane add-in. Our users would not accept this. Please add functionality, probably in the manifest, that would allow a user to give permission to an add-in to automatically launch in the task pane when an existing email is opened or a new email is being created. Thanks!

  19. Improve VBA IDE: Highlight start and end of Blocks e.g. If/End If, With/End With, Do/Loop etc

    It would be great if the VBA IDE would highlight...

    (a) The start and of Blocks such as If/End If. So if you highlighted the "If" the matching "End If" would also be highlighted. This would be great for both coding but also auditing inherited code.

    (b) Highlight incomplete Blocks: so if you start "If" it's red until such time the closing "End If" is added

  20. Improve VBA IDE (MS Access): better integration with SQL Server for query development in Access Front End

    Access can link to SQL Server tables but it would great if it had the same intellisense that SQL Server has for writing SQL Statements directly into the VBA IDE. So if you referred to a linked (or local) table in your VBA code then typed the period, intellisense would show the available fields.
