  1. Add EM+S to Office 365 Development Subscription

    On my Office 365 Dev Subscription, I am trying to do a PoC for Azure AD joining Windows 10 machines. But that requires an intune subscription. I think you will get more development work out of EM+S products, if you include it with the dev subscription.

  2. Benefits for Office 365 Developer Program

    There is no way to access office 365 developer program benefits. The link sent in the activation email points to the page that does not exist. There is no page with links to particular benefits as well.

  3. Offer Office 365 as part of MSDN subscriptions

    I suggest you offer Office 365 as part of MSDN subscriptions.

    I was extremely disappointed to see that when I login to my MSDN subscription and search for "Office", I don't see Office 365 listed as an available download.

    I pay for my MSDN subscription out of my own pocket, so the absence of Office 365 from MSDN subscriber downloads is a large impediment.

  4. Provide at least two licenses in O365 Developer Pack

    You can't test user permissions and other things with a single admin user. Running as admin isn't really best practice when developing. Agreed?

  5. Please fix https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/office/support

    Some key links on this page are broken, which makes it hard for developers to get help.
    (1) dxipfb@microsoft.com bounce email back, because it only accept emails from within Microsoft.
    (2) "Give feedback about this page" link at the bottom of the page links to no where. So it can't be used to provide you feedback at all.

  7. Email address not working on: https://github.com/OfficeDev?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=add-in&type=&language=

    I have tried to send an email to the address: officedev@microsoft.com and it got returned. It might be possible that only certain people can do this, if so, maybe you should hide it from the site? Thanks

  9. i suggest you give a raise to the author of "Write a ASP.NET MVC Web app to get Outlook mail."

    This article is, hands down, the best one I've read in over twenty five years. It helped me solve two huge problems at once.

    There is one minor editorial request: make the web.config element names match the names in the prose.

    Bravo Zulu, msft.

  10. Pesentation on most classic use case for an Excel add-in

    Since Office 2000 I have writen may COM Add-ins for Excel they all have a similar use case. That is they all write text files out of Excel result e.a. CNC files and AutoCAD scripts (see www.scriptsheets.com)

    Please could you consider teaching me and others how to create an Office 365 App that is linked to an Excel workbook. And that can write text files to sub-folders in one-drive (or perhapse my local harddrive).

    This would enable me to renew my existing Add-ins.
    At the moment I should not know where to begin and I only run into cool…

    Thank you for your feedback! We’ve several code samples in the OfficeDev repo on GitHub that are broader, scenario-type samples that can help understand the use case for Excel add-ins. Please check out the samples and let us know if they help.

  11. Pay more attention to the accuracy of your "getting started" web pages

    I started here:http://dev.office.com/getting-started/addins . I downloaded and installed VS 2015 Community edition. I got to here "3.In the New Project dialog, choose Templates > Visual C# > Office/SharePoint > Apps." But there is no such option. The "getting started" web page has no feedback option, which is why I am posting here. I have since discovered that what I need is to get and run the Web Platform Installer at http://aka.ms/officedevtoolsforvs2015 . That does appear to install the necessary stuff. There are enough barriers for people trying to get started - IMO the easier you can make the process,…

  12. Need API change log (Evergreen)

    From MVP Summit 2013: Need to add Evergreen info (version/SKU support). People seemed to like the plan to key off of build number. Shield Team review: "Feature request ... change log for all API content. Would require build changes and new build metadata." See Product Studio [Bug 1482197 - OfficeMain].

    There should be dedicated environments for dev,test and for promoting to production for every subscription that organizations purchase.

  14. Documentation that classifys apps as SharePoint-hosted, Auto-hosted, Provider-hosted makes no sense.

    Makes it sound like there's this one thing and you can host it in three different places.

  15. Code samples are too narrow

    Code samples are not real-world enough, and we also need a 30,000-foot view
