allow add-in to use user's authorizations
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.
Hi Edwin, and thank you for the feedback. We’ve started working on this suggestion and will provide more information at a later date.

To a smaller extend, can we get at least the user name of the person who logged in the Office app (Word and Excel) so we know who that is (GUID and username)? We can grant permissions of SharePoint/OneDrive folders to them too.
