  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. Grafiklerin Geliştirilmesi

    Excelde oluşturulan dağılım grafiğinde dikey ve yatay çizgiler oluşturulamamakta.
    Ayrıca yine aynı grafik türünde nokta ismine etiketin isimlendirilememesi hatası mevcuttur.
    Powerbi de bu sorun yok ancak excelde mevcut.

  5. Add Strikethrough property to Excel.ShapeFont

    Text style editing capabilities are super non-uniform through the API. If you let us use things like strikethrough for Excel.RangeFont, why would you not provide it for shapes too?

  6. Provide a way to edit the Worksheet Zoom in javascript.

    Since range.left returns different values depending on the amount of Zoom your worksheet is, we should be able to edit the zoom or at least know the amount of zoom so we can take the changing position values into consideration.

  7. Office Javascript API Function to Execute Macros that Exist in Workbook

    We just need a clean way to use the Javascript API to tell Excel to execute an existing VBA Macro. While VBA may be falling out of favor to development teams, it's very much alive in the workplace. Excel and Macros are tied to the hip. I imagine this to be a very simple implementation. Let this be an olive branch between VBA and Office JS API.

  8. Expose the commenting feature via excel-js api.

    Can you expose the comments/notes feature in the excel-js api. I am interested in developing an add-in that depends on comments/notes. I noticed that there are other developers who are also interested in add-ins that need access to comments/notes. Following is a stackoverflow thread about it:

  9. track changes in excel

    I work for a large company. We receive requests for proposals in Excel and need to respond in Excel. We need to be able to track our editor's changes in Excel. Currently we can only track changes in Word but that is not the format that consultants use. We have to copy from Excel to Word for editing, then back to Excel to finalized. This is wasting a lot of time. Please add track changes to Excel so that it works the same as Word.

  10. Allow Taskpane Addin's and custom functions to control content addins

    This would allow the ability to have the menu system outside of the content add-in. In addition would provide the ability to seamlessly bring in other charting libraries for more complicated live charting of financial data.

  11. Allow Javascript to be used, and shipped, within the excel sheet and not only as an add-in (as VBA is)

    The beauty of VBA is that it ships with the sheet and does not require the installation of additional programs.
    The need to use an add-in means the majority of excel users (accountants, engineers etc.) are unable to write their own scripts without needing an IT department to approve, install and distribute the add-in. In most corporations this means the JS API is just not an option.
    Our only options then become to learn VBA while its on the way out or use Google sheets which lets you do it all online (ie no installation/IT department required).
    Ultimate goal =…

  13. Ability to inject data in to native PivotTable object

    Currently, you can use the PivotTable object and it's associated collections to create, edit, delete PivotTables. But currently, this relies on using Excel itself for the aggregation.

    It would be nice to instead be able to manually manipulate the PivotTable object and define hooks for expanding Hierarchies to perform custom aggregation.

    This would be useful for using analysis servers which aren't 100% XMLA compliant as well as any other services that want to perform some kind of aggregation on data not available in the worksheet.

  16. Implement reliable WebSockets for Custom Function Add-In in Office.js.

    Currently the web socket implementation for desktop version of Excel (Version 16.0.11601.20130 32 Bit) is not correct. The property bufferedAmount is not implemented in this version. Further messages are lost, if “send” on the WebSocket is called frequently directly from a custom function. It seems as if the SDXPlatformBundle_foundation.js has some bugs.
    In office online the problem does not exist. Please make desktop version behave like online version of Excel with a complete implementation of WebSockets.

  17. Add TTM Dividend Yield (Trailing Twelve Month) in Data Types for Stocks

    The new Convert to Stocks under Data/Data Types has been extremely helpful. One metric I would like to have added to the Field list is Trailing Twelve Month (TTM) Dividend Yield. This is a common metric in investments, one that I would think your data source already has available.

  18. Microsoft Excel address correction/verification function using Bing

    Microsoft Excel address correction/verification function/Add-in using Bing

    On Google sheets, users can use Google Maps services to correct/verify address data even at street level.

    Can we have something similar in Excel since we have everything we need to make this work? In Excel, I came across some work around utilizing scripting but why users need to know scripting language for what can be made available right out of the box?

  20. Delete Duplicate Rows of Data on Excel

    A feature that we can tell Excel to highlight the rows or columns of data that repeat or that are duplicates and DELETE those row or columns of data. I have a company report that prints our company name and subcontractor's name on every project and I only need it shown once. Right now I am having to go in and highlight every row and delete them one-by-one. Time consuming! If there is another way, please let me know.
