  1. Default target framework of Office Addins template should be ASP.NET Core

    Currently, the default solution of an Office Addins generates two projects that targets .NET Framework 4.6.x. Microsoft should change it to ASP.NET Core. There is a way to adapt the manifest file as seem in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/53991876/change-target-framework-of-a-office-addins-project-from-net-framework-to-net-c/53993432 , but It would be great if the keyword ~remoteAppUrl could refer to another address.
    I see this might be a problem as .NET Core is optional when installing VS and might escalate to a broader discusstion.
    Also, as asyncronous JavaScript code freaks out migrating VBA (and even web) developers, shouldn't the default template be already in TypeScript (or at least be in the…

    • Stop using Internet Explorer for the desktop add-ins

      Either embed Webkit or use Edge - this has gone on long enough.

      • Make possible to install Office add-ins permanently to be available offline

        I frequently have to keep my computer offline for weeks, and I'd want to use add-ins I need, like ScriptLab of FunctionsTransform, without constantly reminding myself that I must not clear browser cache or trying to self-host them.
        Simply put, I need an option to install them permanently on disk instead of memory.

            • Hijri Shamsi (Farsi or Persian or Iranian or Jalali) Calendar for Sharepoint

              Hi
              In Iran we really need to have Hijri Shamsi Calendar in any office tools such as Sharepoint.
              It would be appreciated if you could help us to support this calendar.

              Regards

              • Load initialization scripts on start

                I wish Manifest file has a field of pre-load script (or html) url which allows Office products, such as Excel, executes cleanup and initialization process during start like how it has been done as VBA add-ins.

                There are certain cases (single add-in multiple task-pane, UI-less process) we cannot use session storage to store information. Currently we have to store them in local storage which might be still there after restart the host program. A pre-load script will be helpful in such cases to clean up unwanted local storage.

                In addition, it allows some automated process (like scheduled task) to be…

                  • Passing querystring parameters to add-ins opened in Office 365

                    When a word document is opened in Word online (by clicking the office 365 repository url of the document) is it possible to pass the url to the add-in opened in Word online application. If this is possible then external applications can pass arguments to the add-ins via the url

                    • Extend the "commands" to include built-in idMso for use in custom groups and tabs as well as repurposing

                      In the COM world using Ribbon XML it's possible to: 1) display built-in buttons in custom groups and 2) re-purpose built-in buttons. This way the UI can be optimized for the purposes of an add-in. (2) is especially important because Office applications don't expose very many events, making it difficult to impossible to know when a user has done something that requires a reaction from the add-in. In this regard, COM add-ins and VBA are still much more powerful than the JS APIs.

                      • Support for CSS “print” media type for content add-ins

                        When you print a content add-in, an exact screenshot of the add-in’s current view is getting printed. This is unfavorable as all the UI/control elements you may use in your add-in (menus, buttons, navigation, etc.) get printed as well.

                        It would be so much better if Office could use the “screen” and “print” media types of CSS so you can hide specific elements (i.e. the UI ones) for the print-only appearance.

                        • Allow Application-Level or Document-Level Office Addins

                          In VSTO, we can create Application-Level or Document-Level documents. In Office-JS, It seems that at the moment it is a mixture of application level for the ribbon/pane and workbook level for the JS.
                          This separation is important so developers can sell, for instance, a specific workbook for its own and only own ribbons and panes, or a generic applciation level tool.
                          A consequence of this request is that it should be possible to attach an office addin (initialization) to a specific document.

                          • Allow small sized ribbon icons

                            Currently it is possible to add only large sized icons in Office Addins ribbon.
                            It would be great to have smaller icon sized icons.

                            • Improve Custom Dialog

                              Please improve the dialog, it should allow to:
                              - set modality (right now the dialog is not modal!)
                              - have bidirectional communication, i.e. to have possibility to pass information directly from dialog to task pane and vice versa.

                              There are many use cases valid for both requirements:
                              - when you need to retrieve data from task pane (e.g. lazy loading)
                              - you have html where you fill the content, right now you need to pass them in URL which is not really nice solution.

                              • Emit event for document that is about to be saved, or email that is about to be sent

                                there are numerous regulatory scenarios where information needs to be captured as part of a save or send event.

                                This might be mandatory information as part of regulatory compliance, or information that the enterprise requires prior saving a document (e.g. management information of some sort).

                                The most natural place to capture this is at the time of either a document being saved, or an email being sent (once the user has entered their content and therefore understands what metadata is appropriate).

                                If an event could be bound to it would introduce some interesting use cases within the larger business environment.

                                • Save/Load document from Office Javascript API

                                  The save() methods that exists in the API's aren't aren't really very useful. This extends the typical Ctrl+S functionality. It would be great to implement a feature in which it would be possible for us to apply the save() method with a parameter: 'Url/path'. Currently it isn't possible for us to save a document to a specific location nor is it possible for us to load a document from a specific location.

                                  Functions in topic:
                                  - save(string url): apply url/path to where you wish to save the document.
                                  - load(string url): apply url/path to a document you wish to load.

                                  • Customization of Add-in Docking location

                                    Is there a way to specify, docking the task pane add-in in the manifest or any other manner. Default is always right, but few users need that In left hand side.

                                    If not please suggest any possible solution

                                        • Make O365 user identity available in Word Add In

                                          Authenticated O365 users shall not be prompted to login again when they want to use Word Add-In. At the moment any Word Add In secured using O365 directory need to prompt users to enter their credential again despite that they have logged in to O365.
                                          The goal is to provide a better user experience with this single sign on.
