    • Special Cells method

      In Excel API, I can't choose cells based if they have formulas or values.

      In VBA, I can do that by using Range.SpecialCells method. Also, I can specify if I want to get only text values, numbers, errors and/or booleans.

      Please, support this for Excel JavaScript API, because currently, I'm looping all the worksheet's used range rectangle to get the values, and my loops spend a lot of time skipping blank cells.

        • Get all members of a group including nested group members

          Currently in Microsoft Graph, the groups/{id}/members ONLY returns the DIRECT members of the specified group. This is a request for an API that would return all members including nested group members (also known as transitive down closure).

            • Add a webhook resource subscription for Groups to notify of membership changes

              When a member is added or removed from a group, or when membership is requested, make a call to a webhook that can receive the userid, and the action: add, remove, 'request to join', etc.

              We have a lot of processes that hinge upon membership in a group. Instead of constantly polling the group and doing membership comparisons, this would make changes more real-time.

                • Ability to open/replace workbook with Excel JS API in a similar way Word API can with insertFileFromBase64

                  We have a requirement to load a workbook from a remote source from within the add-in. User logs in, selects from a list and workbook template loads.

                  With the Word JS API we can load a template remotely using an AJAX call that returns the workbook as a base64 string and then insert the response into the current workbook using the replace option. AFAIK this doesn't exist for the Excel API and we download the workbook and then instruct the user to open from the download pane.

                  • Make O365 user identity available in Word Add In

                    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.

                    • 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 User Defined function support to the Apps for Office Excel APIs

                        Add User Defined function support to the Apps for Office Excel APIs so that users can enter formulas in excel. User Defined Functions are one of the most powerful features of Excel (and some competitor spreadsheets products now available in the web). They are critical for us to make our Apps for Office product as powerful as our legacy on premise product.

                        • Expose Office API via Swagger.

                          OK this is a radical idea from listening to @mkristensen talk about VS.NET tooling and how they are looking at supporting Swagger 2.0 to provide code generation for RESTful APIs in VSNET.

                          http://devchat.tv/adventures-in-angular/019-aia-microsoft-tooling-with-mads-kristensen

                          I looked up Swagger and their online documentation editor, and browser and here's an example

                          http://petstore.swagger.wordnik.com/#!/pet/updatePet

                          Which is surprisingly similar to Office 365's

                          http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn600182(v=office.15).aspx

                          I think Office 365 documentation on MSDN should still be the primary resource. Any future tie in to API-Sandbox would be awesome.

                          But if VSNET starts to support auto-codegen (like the old days with WSDL/Soap Services) from Swagger documentation, then I can also…

                          • Create REST methods for bulk object retrieval

                            For reporting purposes we would like to have REST methods to retrieve metadata about objects in bulk. Right now we have to retrieve the list of objects first, then get metadata about each of them. This is definitely a very inefficient way to build reports. Essentially, would like a REST method that allows to query for the following objects AND specify fields we want to see in the query results, such as created and last modified dates, author, number of items (in a list), size, permissions, etc. We believe that having such REST methods for Sites, Lists and libraries, and…
