  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…

  2. We need support for itemID in compose mode for Appointments for existing appointments or drafts

    This is needed so that we don't have to call saveAsync every time to get itemid (this will trigger Attendee notification dialogs)

  3. Support for shared mailboxes

    Office 365 shared mailboxes are very useful. Unfortunately, they do not load outlook web add-ins right now: see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35059067/make-outlook-add-ins-working-with-office-365-shared-mailboxes/35065215
    This would be terrific to have add-ins for such mailboxes especially for all CRMs related apps

  4. Add Office Javascript API support for resources of type room in appointments/meetings

    Currently, the requiredAttendees methods setAsync and getAsync have serious issues when resources of room type are used. I will add below my review of the three methods exposed on requiredAttendees object (picture in the link):

  5. add support in OfficeJS for complex type meeting Location object

    Currently OfficeJS only supports simple string type for the meeting Location property, and I would like to be able to access the same complex object type as is exposed in the O365 APIs.

    Note that Outlook users can input a resolved address in the meeting form for Location, and O365 APIs already support this complex type for Location (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/office365/api/complex-types-for-mail-contacts-calendar#Locationv10)

    Vote to update the OfficeJS to support this same Location object.

  6. Add ItemSend event (so add-in can cancel email)

    Would like to have an ItemSend event in the web API just like the regular API does. Is that on the planning stage for future releases?

  7. provide an event to let Outlook Add-in respond to a change in the message being written (for example message body, To, Cc and Bcc lists)

    As referred to the post:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/720a1bd6-abb9-4f75-863f-1fc33256a629/is-there-an-event-for-when-recipients-change-in-outlook-2013?forum=appsforoffice

    there is no event JavaScript API an add-in for Outlook could use to react to a change in email message being written (compose mode).
    For example if the user adds further To, Cc or Bcc Addresses, it would be advantageous if the add-in could react to it and display relevant data.
