  1. Support for invoking O365 add-ins in shared mailbox context in the new Web Outlook

    We have been told that support for add-ins in shared mailboxes will be added to Outlook in Q2/Q3 of 2019. Thus, we have started rolling out support for shared mailboxes in our add-in too.

    As part of this, we have noticed that the add-in icons are only rendered in the context of a shared mailbox element if the user is in the _old look_ of Web Outlook.

    Since more and more people will be using the _new look_ as default, users should be able to invoke the add-ins via the new look too.

    Please add support for rendering the add-in…

  3. Allow administrators to pin Office Add-ins

    With the preview release of "the new Outlook" on OWA, Office Add-ins are now buried in the drop down context menu in an email. Additionally, it appears they do not follow the same behavior of Outlook on the desktop, where Office Add-ins will show in the larger ribbon if used more frequently.

    According to this article, Office Add-ins can be pinned if they are used frequently:

    If you were using add-ins in the classic Outlook on the web experience, they will show up pinned next to mail actions or in the drop-down menu once you open an email in the…

    We need our add-in to respond to the ItemSend event and prompt users to select a client in SHarePoint where to file a copy of the email being sent. At moment this is only avaialble in OWA but 95% of our clients use Outlook desktop. When is this feature coming?

  5. Support for Drag and Drop in Outlook and other addins

    Allow the ability to be able
    - to drag attachments from an e-mail to an addin
    - to drag and drop 1 or more e-mails (and their attachments) to an add-in.

    Allow the ability to drag content to a new /email in compose mode from the addin

    This will allow information exchange between Outlook and the addin which reads /writes data to an external repository

  6. Add support for passing unsaved attachments to displayNewMessageForm

    To forward an email we use the displayNewMessageForm. The attachment data we receive from our backend base64 encoded. So it would be nice, if there would be a possibility to attach these files as unsaved using some kind of data-url like:
    'data:application/octet-stream;charset=utf-8;base64,JVBERi0xLjUNCiW1tbW1DQoxID....'

  8. Detecting Outlook Add-ins

    We currently have a VSTO add-in for Outlook but want to write a new add-in so that we can run on all outlook platforms. However, we don't want our users to run both at the same time. Is it possible for the VSTO add-in to detect if there is a new style add-in installed and/or vice versa, can the new style add-in detect if the VSTO add-in is loaded?

  10. Email Address Drop Down Menu

    You used to save and display all of the email addresses that I would use while managing emails. I find it so frustrating that you now limit this list to the last five emails. I am constantly emailing people that I haven't spoken to in six months or so. The recent emails doesn't help.

    My work around is to go to my laptop and search for someone and then find their email. It used to be that this would just drop down.

    I don't know why you changed this feature. But I waste 10 minutes EVERY DAY searching for email…

  11. ExtensionPoint > OfficeTab > Group > Prefered position (insertAfterMso)

    Implement the insertAfterMso feature to position the tabgroup not at the end but where relevant.

  12. Fix issue in "the new outlook" that limits the displayed recipients to 20.

    While using Office.context.mailbox.item.body.getAsync to get asyncContext, not all "to" and "cc" are retrieved on "The New Outlook", it seems only the first 20 are retrieved.

  13. Fix timezone bug in Outlook

    A few months ago I've found a bug/limitation when developing Outlook Calendar Add-in. When time zone in Appointment organizer mode is changed (dropdown), the time returned by Office.context.mailbox.item.start.getAsync() is aggregated with the hours of the timezone, when the selected timezone itself is not available to get.

    Let me clarify it with an example:

    1. My location time zone is CEST. I open an event and set the time to 7:00 and timezone to Singapore.Image

    2. then in the add-in I use Office.context.mailbox.item.start.getAsync() to get the start time. I receive the following string:

    Thu Oct 25 2018 01:00:00 GMT+0200 (Central European…

  16. Request for a body.appendAsync() method

    Hello,

    I’m working on a web add-in for Microsoft Outlook, and I’ve run into a few issues with Office.js’s body.setAsync() method.

    I’ve posted two questions to Stack Overflow related to my add-in’s use of the body.setAsync() method:

    - Base 64 signature images in the Outlook Web App are lost when I try to update the body of an email [link: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51736434/how-to-prevent-base-64-format-signature-images-being-dropped-in-outlook-web-app]

    - Getting the email body with body.getAsync() and then setting it with body.setAsync() causes line spacing issues in desktop Outlook platforms that use Word as the text editor [link: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51603265/line-spacing-increased-issue-when-updating-email-body-with-office-js]

    My add-in needs to add content to…

  19. outlook desktop : remove all attendees, including meeting room, when passing an empty array

    When using the method requiredAttendees.setAsync(), if we pass an empty array has value parameter, it would be nice to clear all the attenddes, including the meeting rooms.
    Actually, it's working on Outlook web app, but in the desktop app, it clears only the users (internal and external) declared in the requiredAttendees field, but not the meeting room.
    Thanks for your answer!
