  1. Enable binding keyboard shortcuts to a button in Office Add-in or a function in JavaScript

    I have implemented an Excel Add-in, where there are buttons. Clicking on a button will trigger a JavaScript function.

    It will be much convenient to allow users to bind shortcut to a button / function. Users will be able to trigger them more quickly when they need.

    There may be several possibilities as solutions: 1) provide a mean in JavaScript API to bind a shortcut to a button / function; so it will be the job of the add-in developer to bind a shortcut 2) provide a mean to allow users to bind a shortcut to a button in an…

  2. Fix the issue with new JavaScript API for Excel: any change by an add-in clears the Undo/Redo stack.

    You can try to run this code and check the Undo/Redo stack:
    Excel.run(function (ctx) {
    return ctx.sync();

    Renat, thanks for reporting this issue! We are aware of this and the bug is currently being patched. Note that the undo stack will be removed upon any “update” action occurring in the add-in. For read actions, we’ll preserve the undo-stack. We’ll let you know when this is available.

    Thanks,

    Mikhail, thanks for your feedback! This is a very popular feature. This feature is now available as public preview. Please check out the open spec docs at this location to get more details: https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js-docs/blob/ExcelJs_OpenSpec/reference/excel/range.md

    Additionally, you can try out the new API features by using the built-in code snippets that are available in Script Lab https://github.com/OfficeDev/script-lab/blob/master/README.md. In Script Lab, you’ll find samples that use preview APIs listed in the Preview APIs category:

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

    Thanks!

  4. allow add-in to use user's authorizations

    An add-in that has been installed, and approved should not have to initiate another oauth flow to have access to documents on a sharepoint site, onedrive site, onedrive for business site,etc.
    The API should make this readily available when the user is logged in, and has already granted permissions to the add-in itself.
