    Microsoft Office Store dont allow to publish SharePoint App with Full-permission, but there is the need from Site Administrators to extend the Out of the box functionalities such us
    SP.UserCustomAction object (sp.js)
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj245920.aspx to the Site Administrators be able to add custom Actions/Ribbons and Script to their business in the Host Web Site.
    If this option can be done from the App Web to Host Web will avoid SharePoint Solution instalation "WSP" in Farms, the complexity of XML will be reduced and eficiency will increase (hours spent by Dev can be reduce in minutes)

  2. Allow whitelisting of Office Add-Ins in the store for enterprise customers.

    Allow whitelisting of Office Add-Ins in the store for enterprise customers for their end-users. At the moment they only can block access to the store and use 'central deployment'.

  4. Allow Office Add-in Manifest to be published to and hosted by a web server

    The basic request is to support Office Add-in installation from a standard web server (via http or https), in addition to the existing locations: 1) Office Store, 2) network share, or 3) Sharepoint server.

    For details about my requirements, please see forum thread:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/5b8cf52b-4fa3-4fc4-8d25-caf05a442f15/can-i-host-my-addins-manifest-on-a-web-server?forum=appsforoffice

  5. Support for embedding Office.js manifest inside workbook

    Currently, the workbook has to have a reference to a manifest stored elsewhere. Managing the manifest in a catalog is inconvenient.

    Please provide the support for embedding the manifest in the workbook directly so that the solution is self-contained.

    In particular, the source location and app domains are the key elements to include in the workbook.

    We are not asking for any special API to embed this information. Just publish the schema for the xml parts.

    The key ask here is that Excel be able to read this information from inside the workbook and load the Office.js (Excel) add-in without…

  7. Sanely allow Apps for Office deployment to a local computer

    Developing my first App for Office (specifically Excel) was an experience I found to be unnecessarily difficult. The Trusted App Catalogs user interface in Excel:

    File -> Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings... -> Trusted App Catalogs

    Is a giant mess. There's no browse button - just a field to punch in a string that has to be formatted a specific way and only allows network shares and SharePoint remote servers. First off, I was expecting to see a checkbox to "Allow manifest files from untrusted locations" that would then open up a way to select a XML…

  9. Deploy particular version of App for Office/Office Add-In

    Moving from VSTO, etc. to Apps for Office/Office Add-Ins customers have expressed concern that if I (the developer) deploy an app and they start using the app that they will no longer have control over when they update to the latest version of the app.

    For instance say I deploy version 1 to the Office Store and the companies A and B install the add-in for all their employees. When I'm ready to deploy version 2, company A might be ready while company B might not. I'd like a way for companies (and ideally individuals as well) to be able…

  10. Fix issues with trial to paid transition for office apps users (users locked in trial mode after buying apps)

    We keep getting reports and complaints from users that buy our apps but seem to be locked in trial mode. Receiving 1/2 reports a day. We checked that we are receiving trial tokens in the app, but users confirm that they bought the apps. Some are able to reset somehow, but most can't.

    This error is also described here (see first review by Rod):
    http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/mini-calendar-and-date-picker-WA102957665.aspx

    Other recent feedback from user:

    "I tried all the usual suspects. Reloaded excel. Refreshed apps in excel. Attempted to repurchase through excel to see if it would kick in. Restarted the computer."

    "If my memory…

  12. More advanced comments&reviews system in O365 Store

    Currently Office365 Store allows anonymous comments on the product site, which could destroy opinion about each app by haters, trolls and competitors. It makes O365 Store unreliable platform for selling software. Each comment should have mandatory first name, last name, organization name, when app as used etc. You can check Capterra (capterra.com) or GetApp (getapp.com) to see how the comment system should look like.

  14. Health status indicators for the Office Store or App Marketplace

    An idea for this feature comes from the current issue with migration from the Seller Dashboard into the Microsoft Partner Center, which was a complete Microsoft disaster from a system reliability perspective. We have apps in the Office Store and for over 8 days the customers cannot download or update apps from the Office Store, it's a Microsoft issue related to app migration to the Partner Center. Could you imagine that the Apple Store or Google Play totally doesn't work for over 7 days? Complete cut-off from important hotfixes for critical business apps? That's happened with the Office Store... As…

  15. "Update Available" Badges on SiteContents

    It's a pain to identify manually all Apps that are currently offering an update. Users should see a badge on the App Launcher as soon as an update is available.

  16. Add sort/filter capability to app store.

    Right now I get 10's to 100's of app results for a particular category. I'd like to be able to sort those results by 'most popular' (most added?), 'highest rated', cost (free/not free), etc. It's just a shimorgizboard of stuff right now, and makes me dread finding an app or building an app. I want users to find my app because it's the best (i.e. ratings), but they cannot do that with the current interface functionality. Right now my app would just be lost in the sea of other app's, so where's the developer incentive to build an awesome, low-cost…

  17. Create a way to post feedback and ideas for AppSource

    WHY IS THERE NO WAY TO POST IDEAS ON APPSOURCE? You just deprecated the Office Store this week ( 9-25-17) and sent a message to post feedback here. But there is no way to do so... Please add the ability to post ideas related to AppSource... Things like being able to sell solutions in AppSource, cross selling if you have more than 1 listing, tiered pricing, qnd localized marketing assistance to name a few ideas.

  18. Remove App version field from office store submission form

    Currently when you submit an app to office store, you have to enter app version, this has to match the version defined in manifest, this seems redundant to me, can we remove this field from the submission form. App manifest describes the version of the app and having to enter it again during submission seems redundant to me additionally the app validation fails when they don't match, don't believe this is called out anywhere in policy, I could be wrong.

    We need a secure Office version which does not phone home or access sites outside of our network. We are a financial institution. Cloud based Office application of Office data files won't work for us.
