  2. Boost the custom pane height

    The maximum of 450 for the RequestedHeight element in the schema manifest is not quite large enough. There may be scenarios where the UI needs to cover the entire Reading Pane. Form Regions in the Outlook client already support a complete replacement option for some Outlook items. Add-in Express also has this feature for their Advanced View and Form Regions. Maintaining consistency would be best for all design scenarios and migration from other platforms.

    2. Add new Sheet
    3. Add any Content Add-in (f.e. 'Bubbles')

  7. Allow Office Add-in in Excel to read Named Style formatting properties

    In the absence of the ability for a Javascript Office Add-in to apply Named Styles to a range of cells in an Excel worksheet (see: https://officespdev.uservoice.com/forums/224641-general/suggestions/10694052-add-support-to-office-add-in-excel-javascript-apis), a intermediate solution would be for the Add-in to be able to interrogate the Named Style for its formatting properties (alignment, font, etc.) and then use the existing Excel 2016 Office Add-in APIs to apply formats that are equivalent to the Named Style (or nearly so).

  8. Bug to fix: Html ordered list last element rendered out of list when bound to RichText Content Control

    There is a bug I've discussed on MSDN forum:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/cb7b7f3b-c59b-4868-b80f-da6c82b45231/office-api-rich-text-content-control-html-coercion-problem-ordered-lists

    Basically, when html for an ordered list passed with coercion type html into a rich text content control, last element of list rendered as a seperate paragraph.

    A fix would be nice.

    Thanks

  9. Provide Mail App Compose appointment functionality to manage resources

    In compose app scenario there is no way to manage resources.
    1. if you open a meeting in OWA that has resources configured, you cannot access to this resources.
    2. if you create a meeing in Outlook and you add "Room Mailboxes" as required or optional attendees, OL resolve those partecipants as Resources and you can no longer manage those elements.

  10. Ability to use bindable content controls both in header and body

    When bind function in Office API called for richtextbox content controls in header AND body called, binding fails. If content controls are only in header OR all are in body, binding works.

    Please fix this situation so that content controls can be used with Office.js both in page header and page body at the same time.

  11. Grow/shrink Word table containing ContentControls when mapped XML changes

    In Word, table rows mapped to custom XML part don't get updated correctly when the XML changes. The table doesn't adapt the the number of items. In other words, when the XML has X items mapped to a repeatable row, the table doesn't grow to accommodate the X items.

  13. Provide samples for Laravel PHP Framework

    Laravel is the number 1 PHP framework, and includes an oauth system called 'Socialite' There are a huge number of socialte providers at http://socialiteproviders.github.io/ It would be great to see sample code / projects using Laravel and Socialite to connect to SharePoint online.

    I would love to see an example where SPO can be used as a 'document store' for projects in Laravel. Other ideas include the standard list storage/retrieval/query mechanism for list items, calendar events. etc...

    On a related note. Flarum.org is a forum built on Laravel, still in it's infancy, but all the rage in the PHP community…

  15. Add read flag for MailBox API message object

    Read/unread flag would be a nice addition to identify when email is read first time.

    Currently outlook add-ins cannot know which emails are opened first time. Only way to achieve this kind of behavior is to keep track of itemId's.

  16. Fix the broken link for Outlook add-ins with Skype for Business installed

    This is a problem in Outlook 2013. The summary is that the "Tell me more" link directs the user to a Skype for Business specific help page for ALL Outlook add-ins when the Skype Meeting Add-In is installed. I posted full details here:

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/67c50a69-2f92-43ba-8c66-160a087aa7b7

    This problem can be demonstrated with the simplest of Outlook add-ins. An example project that reproduces the problem can be found here:

  17. Provide a feature that allows EXCEL to read back verbally numbers within a range. This would allow a user to back check their entries.

    I often enter long tables of number into my spread sheets. It would be nice to have feature that would allow you to highlight a range of cells, which would activate EXCEL to repeat each entry verbally (via headphones/speakers) back to the user so they may back check their entries.

  18. Check the getFileAsync function funcionality in Excel Online

    I've developed a very simple task pane add-in with Visual Studio 2015.
    I used the sample they have when you chose the template in Visual Studio. I changed it so I could run it in Internet Explorer in a SharePoint site. And when I click the button I call the getFileAsync function with the parameters: Office.FileType.Compressed, sliceSize: 2MG and the call back function which has a very simple console.log instruction ([as explained here]http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32078546/javascript-api-for-office-getfileasync-function-is-not-calling-callback) Yet I cannot get the console.log.. In fact, the last thing I get in the Javascript console is "Agave.HostCall.IssueCall" ..
    How can I solve this?…

  19. Programmatically add an App to an Office Document

    We need a way to programmatically create add an App to an existing Office Document. The use case is to provide users with documents that already have the App attached to it instead of asking to add it manually.

  20. Redesign Office Store Information Architecture

    Who is responsible for the information architecture of the Office App Store? the categories are far from helpful. They are overlapping and inconsistent. There is no hierarchy, I seldom can tell what category to use to refine my searching. They need to take a look at the commercial sites like BestBuy and create metadata that can be used to refine search results with helpful criteria
