  1. Support for shared mailboxes

    Office 365 shared mailboxes are very useful. Unfortunately, they do not load outlook web add-ins right now: see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35059067/make-outlook-add-ins-working-with-office-365-shared-mailboxes/35065215
    This would be terrific to have add-ins for such mailboxes especially for all CRMs related apps

  2. Add ItemSend event (so add-in can cancel email)

    Would like to have an ItemSend event in the web API just like the regular API does. Is that on the planning stage for future releases?

  3. Add Office Javascript API support for resources of type room in appointments/meetings

    Currently, the requiredAttendees methods setAsync and getAsync have serious issues when resources of room type are used. I will add below my review of the three methods exposed on requiredAttendees object (picture in the link):

  4. 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.

  5. Office Add-ins should run in Edge, not IE11

    At the moment Word runs Add-ins in IE11

    IE11 doesnt support ES2016, and is therefore much harder to develop for than all of the other newer browsers (Safari, Chrome, Edge).

    Word should run Add-ins in Edge

  6. Give the VBA IDE a major overhaul finally

    It's been over 20 years since the VBA IDE was created in its present form. MS has since created a number of modern and efficient development environments. Even if the VBA environment has long been referred to as outdated: it is simply the everyday reality for the majority of professional Office developers (especially all serious Access developers). I can not imagine that it lacks capacity to MS to bring the VBA IDE into a more contemporary form.

    To insist that it would not be worthwhile to invest in an improved IDE, is roughly as if an automaker refuses any further…

  8. Add footnote support to the javascript API

    Footnotes are very heavily used in many professional types of documents. (Specifically legal documents). Currently Footnotes are not exposed in any way via the word api which is a sizable gap in the functionality.

  11. Collapsible vba procedures

    By default each procedure should only have the first procedure line (header) visible with an expand button to show all lines within the procedure. Currently a lot of time is spend scrolling through code.

    I would also like to see the two drop downs for general and declarations changed to a tree view on the left so that I can more easily navigate procedures and methods.

  13. 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.

  14. setSelectedDataAsync with data type “HTML” and “Office Open XML” in PowerPoint

    Make it possible to use setSelectedDataAsync with data type “HTML” and “Office Open XML” in PowerPoint. Currently it is only Word that can use data type “HTML” and “Office Open XML”.

  15. 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.

  17. Wildcard search and MatchWholeWord search don't work wtih 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Xamarin wrappers for native Skype SDK's for Android and iOS

    Wrap the native Skype Android and iOS SDK's to allow using Skype for Business in Xamarin apps.

    Preferably also offer a Xamarin Forms component to use Skype in cross-platform Forms app code for Android and iOS.

    The Xamarin community is going to do this anyway but a Microsoft supported solution would be better, esp since Xamarin is now part of Microsoft.
