I suggest you ...

Programmatically disable/hide the Ribbon menu

We are in the process of development for Office 365 based Add-ins for Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
It would be really nice, if we could have a way to disable/hide the ribbon buttons based on some data against that particular user.

        Any update on this matter (couldn't find anything about it in Github)?

        This would make a huge difference for our implementation, and is currently preventing us from using a custom ribbon altogether.

        We have different functionalities available for users on Mac and Office Online due to the differential in available file-hosting options and API, and we need to hide the buttons to activate these actions where they are unavailable
