  1. Excel - Restrict specific cell's formatting in protected worksheets/workbooks BUT allow editing of said cell's values (e.g. characters only)

    Currently when you lock cells and enable worksheet protection, you cannot change anything in the cells.

    A VERY common and basic need is to allow editing of certain cell values but maintain or lock things like conditional formatting.

  2. actionable messages security

    Enterprise organisations have trained their employees in last couple of years against clicking links/attachments/buttons inside outlook because of the possibility of security attacks. Actionable messages are asking exactly opposite of what organisations have asked their employees, take actions inside outlook. We understand that actionable messages needs to be enabled in an office 365 tenant and are just post actions with complete security and there are very rare chances of any security issues. Also clicking on these cards does not launch any external application except outlook add-ins. How can we show inside a card that it is trusted and secure. Can…

  3. Ability to add support for Retrieve Page numbers for Range

    Currently, we are using lastrenderedpagebreak property in Open XML to determine the new page in desktop version. However, this does not seem to work if the document is created in Word online or if we have empty paragraphs at the start of the page.

  4. Add CID of inline attachments to attachment metadata

    When using Office.js to retrieve the body of an email that has inline attachments, we receive HTML like this:

    <div>
    <div dir="ltr">
    <div style="color:black;font-size:12pt;font-family:Calibri,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;background-color:white;">
    This email has images in the body.</div>
    <div style="color:black;font-size:12pt;font-family:Calibri,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;background-color:white;">
    <img data-imagetype="AttachmentByCid" originalSrc="cid:ab24f213-f1a6-4804-ad70-25a4d3ac5f86" naturalHeight="0" naturalWidth="0" src="cid:ab24f213-f1a6-4804-ad70-25a4d3ac5f86" data-outlook-trace="F:1|T:1" tabindex="-1" size="9026" style="max-width:100%;">
    <img data-imagetype="AttachmentByCid" originalSrc="cid:be90d9aa-49a6-48fb-b4b9-d50950aefae3" naturalHeight="0" naturalWidth="0" src="cid:be90d9aa-49a6-48fb-b4b9-d50950aefae3" data-outlook-trace="F:1|T:1" tabindex="-1" size="60886" style="max-width:100%;">
    <br>

    </div>
    </div>
    </div>

    Where the <img> tags are where the inline image attachments would be.

    The attachments property on the mailbox item lists attachment metadata like this:

    {
    attachmentType: "file",
    contentType: "image/jpeg",
    id: "AAMkADFlM2Q0MzdkLTJhZWQtNGQzNS05YWI2LWMwYmNkZmMwODNmZgBGAAAAAAAbEbu84Nj1SIfOZGQpQsg/BwC74mYLmMGJSYnZmTQHpD7TAAAAAAEJAAC74mYLmMGJSYnZmTQHpD7TAAE1znR7AAABEgAQACz3QOlxzApEvhIoK7iHWoc=",
    isInline: true,
    name: "home_team.jpg",
    size: 9341
    }

    There is currently no way…

  5. Have a single list for going to a procedure in the VBA editor

    The VBA editor with two dropdowns at the top, one for object and one for procedure, is fine, I suppose, for creating procedures (though I never use it). But it's a pain in the butt for going to an existing procedure. I never use it for that either, since it's easier to just do a Find on the procedure name you want.

    I would like a SINGLE LIST of all current procedures in the module, so as to be able to easily navigate between them. The list should be in the order the procedures are in; or modifiable between that…

  6. Bring back visual studio outlook Add-in wizard that was in Apps for Office

    The templates in Visual Studio were opening a wizard when creating Add-ins for Outlook using the Apps for Office templates. With this wizard, we were able to choose the type of Add-in with the Read and Compose scaffolding in place. Now, no wizard and we need to build from scratch.

  11. Allow Microsoft, Android Os, Chrome Os, Sprint, Boost Mobile, LG, Motorola LLC to combine knowledge

    I want to ask permission from all of these Companies to combine their knowledge together to put on a laptop just like my acer laptop, because it has a window 7 now it is running on Windows 10...it has a at least 300GB storage, 11 channel of network such as wifi connection, it has the capability to communicate to any unknown IP addresse because it has "null" inside somehow along the line. But what really bothers me is when anyone would dare to put their fingers right on my acer laptop like to change everything around. Com'on I don't even…

  12. hiding calendar

    I use to hide calendar in Outlook in order to read mails, if you keep a flip icon/button to hide/release calendar/meetings list, it will be veryuseful instead of opening calendar or enabling calendar from view menu.

  13. Support to add custom buttons to PivotTable Context Menu

  14. Allow Outlook 2016 for Mac attachments to automatically be opened in edit mode

    Would like the capability to edit attachments when they are opened in Outlook without having to manually create a separate copy. On Outlook 2016 for Mac, the only workaround appears to be to open the attachment in preview mode then selecting Open with Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint etc.

  17. Microsoft Excel Professional 2013 DOESN'T always SORT correctly

    An add-in is not necessary.

    What IS NECESSARY is for the Excel Developers to FIX Excel 2013 Professional so that it sorts correctly.

    I've reported previously that when sorting colums, Excel does no sort items correctly:

  18. Keep add-in alive when user closes task pane

    When the user closes the web add-in task pane, the web add-in is terminated for that workbook with no warning. I currently see at least four distinct issues:
    - any in-progress operation may be interrupted with unpredictable results
    - The add-in’s Excel event processing and handling is terminated. So, there is no longer any reaction to user gestures such as editing a cell or changing the selection
    - The user steps needed to re-open the task pane (to re-attach the add-in really) are non-obvious for the average user
    - If the user does discover how to re-insert the add-in, the…

  20. Stop making us change the password while traveling - when we have already verified an account and shown it is not being compromised.

    Stop making us change our password while traveling. We have to verify an email is ours when logging in from foreign countries. Once finished, they require a new password - different from all others. Once verified, we should be able to KEEP the old password.
