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.
Office 365 shared mailboxes are very useful. Unfortunately, they do not load outlook web add-ins right now: see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35059067/make-outlook-add-ins-working-with-office-365-shared-mailboxes/35065215
This would be terrific to have add-ins for such mailboxes especially for all CRMs related apps1,434 votes
Thanks for your feedback, the feature is currently in preview. Documentation can be viewed here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/reference/manifest/supportssharedfolders

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.164 votes
