  1. Add Worksheet.EnableFormatConditionsCalculation to Excel API

    In VBA you can turn on calculation for formatting by using "EnableFormatConditionsCalculation". I suggest adding this same feature to the office-js Excel API so that we can turn on updates for formatting.

  2. Is Excel Javascript API only for creating Add-Ins?

    I am thinking about using the API for quickly exchanging lots of excel data with a webserver. Especially for administration purposes.

    Requirements
    1. Create a connection with a custom webserver instead of localhost [ON OPEN]
    2. Refresh/load the data from the website into the excel workbook when the excel file is opened [ON OPEN]
    3. Send a lock command to the webserver to prevent other users from making changes at the same time as well [ON OPEN]
    4. Return all the data to the webserver [ON SAVE]
    5. Display error message when the format is incorrect [ON SAVE]
    6. Remove…

  3. Consolidation

    While applying the Consolidation option in excel, it shows as "Book 1" for all the consolidated sheets instead of a respective worksheet name.

  4. Make API for accessing Automatically Expend Table Option available in office.js

    Currently office.js does not provide an API for accessing Automatically Expend Table Option or other auto correct options for tables.
    In VBscript you would use Application.AutoCorrect object. Having something like that would be very useful.

  7. Disable resizing and moving Slicers

    In current version of Office JS, we are not able to disable resizing and moving of dynamically created Slicer.
    This would be useful if we want to restrict user from moving the slicers.
    Equivalent to VBA property , Slicer.DisableMoveResizeUI

  9. Provide access to SQL queries through Officejs API for Add-ins

    Spreadsheets built for handling financial data need access to the corporate database. Presumably that is why capabilities are provided within Excel to define and execute SQL queries within the context of a workbook/worksheet.The role of an Add-in to provide a whole host of capabilities to the workbook author cannot be overstated. Yet OfficeJS Excel API seem to be lacking the ability to define, access, and execute the aforementioned queries. Are there any plans in the works to provide the capabilities?
    The lack of this capability particularly affects 3rd party add-in providers who cannot otherwise access a customer's corporate database.

  10. Excel AddIn - Add case sensitivity option to Excel.ListDataValidation

    The Excel API for list data validation has the source property defined as either a string (of comma separated values) or a range. However these two different types are not treated the same.

    Data validation lists passed to source as strings will evaluate with case sensitivity. Lists passed to source as an Excel.range will evaluate without case sensitivity. This makes it impossible to use a list for data validation that comes from memory (or any place other than an Excel range) and to treat it with case insensitivity.

    I suggest a case sensitivity/match case property be added to Excel,ListDataValidation so…

  13. Add .getItemAt functionality to PivotTableCollection

    Most collection objects in the JavaScript API have a .getItemAt method. This allows you to access user-created objects without having to know how they're named. PivotTableCollection lacks this method.

  14. Make a tool for debugging Javascript API in Chrome Devtools

    Debugging on Mac is a pain.. The built-in safari tools are buggy and laggy. The only useful feature of volron.js is displaying console.log's.
    I want a normal developer experience on Mac!

  15. Support OfficeExtension.EmbeddedSession for Excel (and Word and PowerPoint)

    EmbeddedSession (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/javascript/api/office/officeextension.embeddedsession?view=common-js) is only supported for Visio (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/reference/overview/visio-javascript-reference-overview). We would like to be able to embed an Excel workbook on a public web page and be able to control it via Office.js.

    You can embed Excel via the OneDrive embed > JavaScript configurator and control it using the very old JavaScript API (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/developer/sharepoint-2010/hh315812(v=office.14)), but that API lacks many key features of Office.js.

  19. Insert picture/shape in Excel range

    Like inserting shapes in a worksheet it would be useful to insert pictures in a range/cell. The range/cell acts as an anchor.

  20. Ability to programmatic update the Excel Add-in cache or other automation way

    Our Add-in deals dynamic server address so we need to update the manifest frequently. The only way to update the Add-in cache is to refresh and insert again, is it possible to do it in automation?
