There are several new features that are going to be released this year like Custom Functions or Dynamic Arrays which are extremely critical for our Addin and our customers. And those won't be available for retail version of Office 2016/2019
Microsoft should provide at least one time update for the Office 2019 to support these features so our customers can leverage the functionality ASAP without having to wait for next retail version!
For us it is critical thing as there are quite a lot customers preferring retail versions over Office365 subscription.150 votes

Office.context.ui.displayDialogAsync gives us the ability to open a dialog of a certain size, but the size options are only in percents of the parents window.
This could be fine if we could know the size of the parent window from an add-in - we could get it and do some calculations, but CORS blocks us from that.
Using only percentages puts us in awkward situations where we have a dialog with a decent amount of content that we need to make responsive to a tiny window when there is still a lot of real estate available in the parent.70 votes

Theming is exposed for Powerpoint Content Add-ins, but the ability to theme Task-Pane add-ins and their outputs would be even better!
I have dynamically created graphics that users can insert into their documents via a task-pane add-in but the theme is currently locked and unable to change based on a document's design choices.3 votes
Allow for SIP Address/IM Address to be added/updated using the Microsoft Graph API.
