  1. Wildcard search and MatchWholeWord search don't work wtih tracked deletions

    At present, if there are tracked deletions within a word, that word will not be found by search if either MatchWholeWord or Wildcards are turned on. This is a bug in search, but it is especially crucial to fix for add-ins.

  3. Display the taskpane on the left of the document

    When insert a web add-in (taskpane app) to Word, the taskpane will display on the right of the document as default. I see there is a property called dockstate in XML. Can you provide a function to set the value to make the taskpane display on the left of the document?

  5. imporve searching managedDevice by roleScopeTagIds or lack thereof

    currently when querying https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/deviceManagement/managedDevices scope tag ids are empty - roleScopeTagIds property -.

    A way to query devices in function of those would be usefull for those of us that want to automate tag assignement.

    I do find that empty array on roleScopeTagIds is missleading but understand that this could lead to much data delivered as the tags are not capped.

    Either do cap the number of tags per device...

    Or provide a way to query managedDevices per tag or lack there of:
    maybe a method to request those (with our without roleScopeTagIds).

  10. Allow dialogs to be sized with pixels instead of only percentages

    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.

  12. Include a blocking feature in the iPad Outlook app

    I am continually plagued with unwanted emails on my Outlook app for my iPad. Nobody seems to do anything to produce a facility to block them. Using Outlook.com doesn’t solve the problem. Time to redesign the Outlook app for the iPad to include a means of blocking unwanted emails from various senders.

  13. Improve VBA IDE: Highlight start and end of Blocks e.g. If/End If, With/End With, Do/Loop etc

    It would be great if the VBA IDE would highlight...

    (a) The start and of Blocks such as If/End If. So if you highlighted the "If" the matching "End If" would also be highlighted. This would be great for both coding but also auditing inherited code.

    (b) Highlight incomplete Blocks: so if you start "If" it's red until such time the closing "End If" is added

  16. Allow customizing headers in file attachment requests to allow more modes of authentication

    Adding an attachment via addFileAttachmentAsync is currently very limited in how it handles authentication, for 2 reasons:
    1) When Outlook (desktop application, not OWA) requests the attachment, it first does an OPTIONS call, which is good, but does not set an Origin header, which is bad. This means CORS rules cannot be enforced properly.
    2) Outlook seems to also always set an "Authorization" header with value "Bearer" when requesting the file. It is common though to specify the authentication tokens as query string parameters. In this case, the server receives both an Authorization header and authentications tokens in the query…

  17. Find&Replace tool

    Why don't you add the possibility to apply the Find & Replace tool only to a text selection, as is done in Microsoft Excel? This would be much appreciated!

  20. Onedrive support server-side copy files from one folder to another folder or save from shared folders.

    Sometimes, we need to save something from one folder to another. Sometimes, we need to save something from onedrive of other account(for example, save some folder shared by other to my own onedrive). I expect to have an API to perform the action in onedrive server side. In Chinese, most of the Cloud Storage have implemented this feature.
