  1. Add Abitility to create pivot Table via Office Javascript API

    In the current version of the office javascript api I can see that the setSelectedDataAsync method allow only inserting text, matrix and table into excel spreadsheet.

    I would like to see the javascript api enhanced and allow inserting pivot Table also. In this way I can use pivot Table helpers (such as slicer, fields list ....) and also refresh pivot table programmatically.

      • Add an O365 REST API endpoint returning a list of pinned "My Apps" of a current user

        When I'm creating an App on Office 365, users can pin them and select them from the "My Apps" menu in the new Office 365 ribbon.

        I would like to recreate this menu/whole ribbon in my app (desktop or web, whatever), to bring a consistent experience to my end users. By this, my users could easly switch between O365 Apps and my app.

        I'm inspired by TechEd Europe and all the O365 sessions. This is what imho is missing and is very important atm.

        Something like:
        dev.office.com/me/apps/pinned

        • Social Network of project and Office-document sharing

          Would be really useful for all students studying in international fields of their studies to be able to share their projects and presentations and be able to access or view other peoples' work. This would be linked with your Microsoft account and it would be nice to have a rating system for shared projects.

          Think about how much more effort students around the world would put on their projects when they are trying to achieve publicity and good grades online with their school projects. Now that we have Office for iPhone and iPad also the sharing of your documents straight…

          • Only fire BindingDataChange event when cell data changes

            Currently it fires on scroll or changing formatting or cell width or a bunch of other random situations. Additionally, it should probably only fire when the user actually changes something, not when I write something with the API

            • improve the copy and move functionality in the Office 365 API Preview

              In the preview Files Rest API you can only copy and move files within the same document library. This should be improved so that you can move files within a site collection or across site collections in the same tenancy. Further to this having CopyTo and MoveTo methods at the folder level would be just awesome.

                • Excel Apps - Enable Data validation support

                  Data Validation support is a key feature requirement for using Office Apps for OLTP systems.
                  The main idea is to fill the gap between VSTO features and Office Apps. This will help in easy portability of VSTO based apps to Office apps.

                    • Create a single REST API for skydrive pro and skydrive. Allow users to open documents in Office 365 and save back to any source via POST

                      The rest api is horribly documented, poorly executed and nearly impossible to use for people without sharepoint. No way to easily access files in skydrive pro.

                      Basically replicate what Google and Dropbox does.

                      Give developers a way to open documents in Office 365 and save back to any source. Similar to Zoho remote api.
