  1. Programmatically disable/hide the Ribbon menu

    We are in the process of development for Office 365 based Add-ins for Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
    It would be really nice, if we could have a way to disable/hide the ribbon buttons based on some data against that particular user.

      For Appointments we need a property telling us if the current item is part a Recurring Meeting Series (In Compose mode)

              Mikhail, thanks for your feedback! This is a very popular feature. This feature is now available as public preview. Please check out the open spec docs at this location to get more details: https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js-docs/blob/ExcelJs_OpenSpec/reference/excel/range.md

              Additionally, you can try out the new API features by using the built-in code snippets that are available in Script Lab https://github.com/OfficeDev/script-lab/blob/master/README.md. In Script Lab, you’ll find samples that use preview APIs listed in the Preview APIs category:

              Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

              Thanks!

            • Need content Controls found on desktop Excel and Word applications to be avaiable in web version of Excel and Word

              Content controls like found in the desktop version of Excel Word need to also exist on the Web version of Excel Word and function the same. The same controls should be able to be used on the desktop version of Excel and Word and the Web version of Excel and Word. This would allow moving Excel and Word files containing content controls between the desktop and Office 365's OneDrive and SharePoint sites. The Workbooks and documents with content controls would work the same in both environments (desktop and Online). This is a critical need!

                Jim, thank you for your feedback! Please note that there’s no notion of content controls in Excel. Content controls feature is only available in Word.

                Also, the content control API is already available in Word Online. However, content controls are currently not editable in Word Online, and this is currently being worked on. We’ll keep you posted when this is available.

                Thanks!

              • API to point to next and previous paragraph from the current paragraph

                It would be very useful for processing large document to have the ability to access previous and next paragraph from any paragraph object.
                Thanks

                    • Opt out or in of saving add-in to document

                      Saving a document with an add-in panel open, saves the add-in along with the document.

                      The next time the document is opened the add-in opens with it. If the add-in is not installed it will be suggested to the user.

                      In cases where an add-in generates content for the user the add-in may not be meant for user's clients in which case it would be great to have this functionality as either opt out or opt in.

                          • Excel - Add CopyWorksheet

                            We have a need to repeat the same formatted Worksheet over and over based on selections made by the user. It would be great to setup a template so that same worksheet can be copied. The worksheet has all formatting including printing stuff in place already. Be great to just be able to copy that and fill in the data.

                              Authenticated O365 users shall not be prompted to login again when they want to use Word Add-In. At the moment any Word Add In secured using O365 directory need to prompt users to enter their credential again despite that they have logged in to O365.
                              The goal is to provide a better user experience with this single sign on.

                                An add-in that has been installed, and approved should not have to initiate another oauth flow to have access to documents on a sharepoint site, onedrive site, onedrive for business site,etc.
                                The API should make this readily available when the user is logged in, and has already granted permissions to the add-in itself.

                                    • Fix the issue with new JavaScript API for Excel: any change by an add-in clears the Undo/Redo stack.

                                      You can try to run this code and check the Undo/Redo stack:
                                      Excel.run(function (ctx) {
                                      return ctx.sync();
                                      });

                                        Renat, thanks for reporting this issue! We are aware of this and the bug is currently being patched. Note that the undo stack will be removed upon any “update” action occurring in the add-in. For read actions, we’ll preserve the undo-stack. We’ll let you know when this is available.

                                        Thanks,
                                        Office Extensibility Team

                                        It will be good to have access to CustomXmlParts for Excel via JS APIs. Currently it supported only by Word. It allows developers to provide coolest plug-ins for Excel 365.

                                        • Bug to fix: Html ordered list last element rendered out of list when bound to RichText Content Control

                                          There is a bug I've discussed on MSDN forum:
                                          https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/cb7b7f3b-c59b-4868-b80f-da6c82b45231/office-api-rich-text-content-control-html-coercion-problem-ordered-lists

                                          Basically, when html for an ordered list passed with coercion type html into a rich text content control, last element of list rendered as a seperate paragraph.

                                          A fix would be nice.

                                          Thanks
