  2. 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.

    Office.js could provide an API for this, as its internally use host information to load custom host scripts.

  5. Method for determing which Office Application an Add-In is running in

    Currently, an Add-In can be setup to be runnable in Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc...

    There are certain API features that are available to some of the Office Applications but not others; In addition, the availability of these features differ based on platform (fat clients, web, ipad, etc...).
