  1. Solve Office Activation Issues on Azure VMs

    Office installed on Azure VMs are losing their activation after a VM shutdown. This makes it impossible to create test VMs or use Office on a developer VM to develop/test/deploy(buildserver output) on Azure. Activation based on hardware assets such as harddrive and network MAC/IP combinations is outdated in 2014 and invalidates your VM images.

  2. Add-in Developers - Automated Testing Platform

    It is very difficult to test add-ins against multiple versions of Office and on different platforms.

    For example, I ran into an issue where I had the latest macOS but a user had an older version. It was very difficult to debug and test code against that older version.

    Therefore, it would be nice to have something like https://www.browserstack.com/ or Sauce Labs that was available to Add-in Developers so that we could run some automated testing in CI to make sure our changes will work on multiple platforms and environments. Maybe even at a minimum a set of VM's like…

  4. VBA to WASM (web assembly) compiler

    VB/A runs on windows and mac, 32/64 bits, it's interpreted, and compiled (classic VB). Port the compiler for the WASM VM. It would probably then become possible to run VB/A macros in the Office Web Apps, on all supported platforms.

  5. Insert Visual Basic 6.0 programming language as default on Windows 10 updates

    This is one of the fastest programming languages out there. Let's be realistic, all the "top" listings in which VB. NET is in top, are pure lies. VB6 was, is, and will be used by many, constantly. Young people constantly come to VB6 in a natural way. People simply use VB6 because is smart, fast and powerful (and independent of .NET).

  7. Support Custom CSS via AlternateCSSUrl web property on Modern SharePoint pages

    Some users have decided to use the modern experience for lists and libraries within existing sites, but the CSS in the AlternateCSSUrl web property is not supported on the modern pages, resulting in an inconsistent UI for things like the Top Nav and Quick Launch as compared to the rest of the site. If we could apply CSS globally to these elements via the AlternateCSSUrl web property we could make a difference, instead of having to turn off the option to use modern pages for all users in order to control the UI.

  10. Add App Launcher to AppChrome

    Add the ability to have the App Launcher a part of the current AppChrome JavaScript code.

    I would like to build some internal applications and SharePoint Apps using the Office UI Fabric and would like the Office 365 look and feel to include the AppChrome and App Launcher.

  11. Provide samples for Laravel PHP Framework

    Laravel is the number 1 PHP framework, and includes an oauth system called 'Socialite' There are a huge number of socialte providers at http://socialiteproviders.github.io/ It would be great to see sample code / projects using Laravel and Socialite to connect to SharePoint online.

    I would love to see an example where SPO can be used as a 'document store' for projects in Laravel. Other ideas include the standard list storage/retrieval/query mechanism for list items, calendar events. etc...

    On a related note. Flarum.org is a forum built on Laravel, still in it's infancy, but all the rage in the PHP community…

  16. Provide Apps for Office testing guidance or samples

    I am prototyping a task pane app for Apps for Office. I intend to deploy this on the desktop version of Excel as well as Excel Online in various browsers (IE, chrome, firefox). Currently, I am unsure of the proper way to test the interaction of my task pane App with the Excel spreadsheet. For instance, when my app inserts a table into the Excel Spreadsheet, what tool should I use to verify that a table was inserted into the sheet. For the desktop version of Excel, Coded UI seems usable. However, for online versions of Excel, it is does…

  18. Come back with the list of UI Fabric styles

    Now when the UI fabric site was changes there is no longer a way to find out the available component styles. Only the general syles are now listed but e.g. no description about what styles (class name) are available for e.g. a button.

    The React, Angular and other framework based options do not always work so it is important for developers to have the ability to adjust and make own altenatives.

  19. Please provide the ability to move O365 tenant Data Region move in the Office Developer Program

    Currently when we sign up for the Office Developer Program and create and O365 Subscription, the tenant is set to North America. This causes the inability to test add-in and functionality in the data center local to developer's location. Can you please provide the ability for O365 data region to be able to move? This solves latency and data sovereignty issues.

  20. Add AI Builder to developer program benefits

    It would be a great addition if the AI Builder were included in the Office 365 developer program benefits (just like the E5 tenant). If it were included we could be better advocates of the product and actually sell it to clients.
