Feature Requests and Feedback

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Enable update of Users.Responsibilties from the Microsoft Graph

      I have an issue where the responsibilities attribute cannot be set from the Microsoft Graph. It appears to be isolated to this property as i am able to update Schools which is of the same data type. I have posted a Stack Overflow question regarding this at the following link which has more detail: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/42621962/micorsoft-graph-api-responsibilites-update/42639229#42639229.

      This is urgent for my current project and think this is either a bug or an oversight as all other fields seem updatable.

      • is this the right place to ask about word add-in issues or just ideas?

        is this the right place to ask about word add-in issues or just ideas?

        I'm having issues trying to understand the code from a GitHub example posted by office-dev.

        everywhere I've gone to ask questions I keep getting a brick wall with not answers and plenty of suggestions on how to ask questions but no answers.

        EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING.

        • yammer graph

          I've been trying for a while to integrate or use the graph api to query yammer information. However, despite a couple of posts found, there seems to be no way of actually doing this.

          I can define my app in AD with permissions to graph and to yammer, i then can authenticate successfully and query standard graph end points based on user.read scope. However if i try using the same token on Yammer it tells me is not valid, if i try to use the code to get a Yammer access token then is also not doing it... so how…

          • Download files within task pane app

            I'm a developer working on an Office JS task pane app in Word. Using the contents of the user's file my app generates a document as a pdf either a docx on my application's server. I would like to give the user the option to download this generated file directly from the task pane. I have tried to implement this using Javascript (linking to the document with window.location.href) but the behavior I have seen has been inconsistent across platforms and does not function well anywhere.
            On the Mac the pdf is downloaded and opened, but it takes the place of…

            • Microsoft Graph API: How to copy Shared Folder between Accounts in OneDrive Business

              Is it possible to copy a shared folder to my own profile in OneDrive Business via Microsoft Graph API?

              Both accounts are OneDrive Business Accounts. Account A shares a folder to Account B. Account B is logged in and can see all shared items from Account A. So Far so good.

              How can I copy this shared folder to the profile of Account B?

              When I try this POST I get a 401 - The caller is not authenticated.

              • Actual support

                After speaking with your support earlier today I found that despite having a support option for your REST API in the 365 Admin portal you have no avaliable trained staff to actually support the API. To ensure that nobody else wastes upwards of 30 minutes of their time on hold only to be fobbed off back to the very article you showed them at the beginning of the call to employ or train a collective of individuals in your call centers on the rest API or don't advertise that you'll support it.

                • attachment pop up

                  It would be great to add a pop up for "attachments" when keywords such as attach, attached, enclosed, etc. are in an email. That way, I don't forget to attach a document to the email and have to send another. Thank you!

                      • Let us actually preview the unified Office365 api

                        Both from StackOverflow and partner technical services I have gotten the confirmation:

                        Even being tenant admin I cannot set permissions for Office 365 Unified API applications. Partner can use UserVoice http://officespdev.uservoice.com/ to suggest changes and report errors

                        http://stackoverflow.com/questions/30925124/could-not-update-the-configuration-for-app-error-message-when-adding-office365

                        My idea/suggestion is to fix this first step, this will allow us to actually preview this API ?

                          Hello,
                          I am working with the "Napa" Office 365 Development Tools and really want to get this to work smarter for our company. We are using this is conjuction with Visual Studio 2013 and of course we know that there are many things that VS can do to help in development. I deliberately want to have certain parts of Monaco to work better so I do not have to switch away for what I consider to be small app scenarios.

                          1. jsdoc support - please increase the number of tags that can be used. I can use @param and that…

                            Hi Yemi,

                            Thank your for your feedback! This request is from some time back and we have since discontinued Napa. We recommend taking a look at Script Lab which lets you do many of the same things and also supports TypeScript. You can check it out here: https://github.com/OfficeDev/script-lab/blob/master/README.md#top Let us know if you have any feedback on Script lab.

                            Thanks!
