Remove App version field from office store submission form
Currently when you submit an app to office store, you have to enter app version, this has to match the version defined in manifest, this seems redundant to me, can we remove this field from the submission form. App manifest describes the version of the app and having to enter it again during submission seems redundant to me additionally the app validation fails when they don't match, don't believe this is called out anywhere in policy, I could be wrong.

I am sure there is probably a valid reason for this but I agree it is a pain. If I had to guess it's the #1 cause for app store submission failures. Ideally, the process could validate your package against the version number before allowing you to submit.
