  1. Support Compose add-ins on Outlook for Mac

    I'm re-opening this idea (https://officespdev.uservoice.com/forums/224641-feature-requests-and-feedback/suggestions/12947451-support-mac-compose-in-add-ins) that was posted in March and replied to in October of this year. Compose add-ins are NOT supported on the 2016 Outlook Mac client as far as I can tell (I'm running v15.29 (161115) with Office Insider Fast); Compose add-ins ARE available in Word, Excel, etc. but not Outlook. Please let us know when and if that will be remedied. Thanks!

  3. auto run plug-in (user/app defined)

    Allow user to install plug-in with the option to auto-run the app (or plug-in as the option to turn on auto-run) so the user doesn't have to active the plug-in each time.

    Give developers possibility to create add-in for outlook online, that is displayed in vertical pane in read mode. I saw such add-ins for Evernote and Wunderlist but there is no information in documentation how to create such add-ins. See screenshot: http://www.screencast.com/t/y6V5KTt1

  6. Ability to close the outlook add-in Pane

    When developing an outlook add-in, it would be nice if it were possible to close the add-in pane with javascript after a certain action has been completed or after the user has done something.

    Please support Mac - and give us some idea of when this support will be available.

  8. Provide functionality for Outlook Add-In to launch in the task pane when an existing email is open

    When an existing email is viewed, add-ins appear in an area just above the email body. It is not currently possible to have add-ins launch in a task pane to the right of the email. We would prefer the behavior to be similar to when a new email is being composed and add-ins appear in the task pane to the right of the email. Thanks.

  9. Support "add-in commands" on all platforms and in 2013

    Support add-in commands on phone, tablet, web, desktop, Mac, and in 2013 (not just 2016).

    Right now, "Add-in commands currently work only in Outlook in Office 2016 Preview on Windows desktop": https://msdn.microsoft.com/EN-US/library/office/mt267546.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    For our product, the new add-in platform is a no-go without add-in commands.

  10. Need app to edit content, not take three clicks to launch every time

    It takes three clicks to open an app that has edit permissions in Outlook, and must be done for every new window. The new add-in platform is a no-go for us because of this. We'd prefer zero clicks (run when context met) or one click. It's hard to imagine someone writing a Mail app complex enough to warrant a three-click launch every time.

    The content app UI is closer to what we want, but doesn't allow edit permission.

  11. Provide IntelliSense and validation for Add-in Commands manifest elements

    The XML-elements that create Add-in Commands don't validate (give warnings) and don't have IntelliSense. Suggest making them validate and have IntelliSense.

  14. Provide Mail App Compose functionality to Save current appointment/mail

    I'm currently working on a Mail Compose App and I need the ItemId of the current Appointment (or mail), so I can communicate with the message in a later stadium using EWS. But currently it's not possible the save the current Appointment/Mail and therefor an ItemID is only available after the user is manually saving the appointment/message.

    I also noticed that ItemID is only available in a Read Form. In Compose form this value is always undefined.

  15. Retrive attached files via Outlook JavaScript API

    Today you can only retrieve the attachment metadata from outlook messages but not the file itself. For that you need to build a remote service separate from the app.

    Modern browsers support the File API. Let us use it to work with attachments in Outlook. It would be very useful for integration with document management systems such as SharePoint.
