  1. Provide a method to close an already opened document

    It would be really great to have a method (like context.document.close()) to close an already opened document. I need this to ensure that when I open a document using document.open(), the document should be opened in the same instance.

  2. Office.context.officeTheme to return dark/light theme in Outlook web app

    In desktop Outlook app you can set dark/light theme or follow system theme and you can read that value from Office.context.officeTheme so add-in color scheme would match the app.
    You can set dark theme in Outlook web app but the issue is that Office.context.officeTheme returns undefined.

  3. Word API- put a custom attribute on 'P'/Sect/children etc

    When ooxml is written back, please allow adding custom attribute to 'P'/section and any/all of its children, or to a 'Range'.
    Once set, a 'search' can be done on any custom attribute and its value and a Range (or RangeList as indicated via search) be returned, covering all contiguous tags having the attr/value.

    This, with some search improvements suggested (here: https://officespdev.uservoice.com/forums/224641-feature-requests-and-feedback/suggestions/40539628-word-api-search-improvements) will greatly improve user experience who's using the addin.

  4. Word API - search improvements

    Three improvements suggested:

    1- Preferably search be given an extra parameter (or someway) indicating 'direction' - search 'forward' (below current cursor position) or 'backward' (above current cursor).

    2- A search should be possible on any attribute/value of P/Sect etc and/or any of its children.

    3- A search can also indicate if user wants to get only the first Range (ie 1st search result only) or all ranges (ie all search results). Word doesn't need to scan whole document if all user is looking for is next/previous one result only, which will result in faster turn-around.

    All these are specially needed…

  5. Allow user to access to microphone in office add-in

    The requirement for me is using webRTC in office add-in, so we need to access to microphone, however there is no way to grant the access to microphone in desktop app(it works well on web side). so we want add-in can support this feature.

  8. Allow administrators to pin Office Add-ins

    With the preview release of "the new Outlook" on OWA, Office Add-ins are now buried in the drop down context menu in an email. Additionally, it appears they do not follow the same behavior of Outlook on the desktop, where Office Add-ins will show in the larger ribbon if used more frequently.

    According to this article, Office Add-ins can be pinned if they are used frequently:

    If you were using add-ins in the classic Outlook on the web experience, they will show up pinned next to mail actions or in the drop-down menu once you open an email in the…

  12. Add Office.EventType.ItemChanging event for Outlook

    Adding Office.EventType.ItemChanging event will greatly help add-in developers to write robust code to handle changing mail items.

    With a ItemChanging event that fires before Office.context.mailbox.item changes to the new context, we can write cleaner transition state logic, avoiding operations meant for previous item from bleeding into the next item.

  13. encrypt

    I believe that you should support smime encryption and not only signing in office js apps. This is an important feature since many companies depend on S/Mimein their product. Currently, as per your documentation, the add-in is not activated in case of encrypted emails.

    Regards

  14. Make working with invalid bindings easier

    Working with invalid bindings is slow and awkward. Please make working with them easier by:


    1. Actioning this feature request: https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js/issues/804 (see also this Stack Overflow question: https://stackoverflow.com/q/45586251/185544 ).

    2. Making delete work on an invalid binding.

    Right now there are awkward, undocumented workarounds like the one in this Stack Overflow answer:https://stackoverflow.com/a/61803555/157247, but they're...awkward and undocumented. :-)

    Thanks!

  15. Custom task pane header in Microsoft Outlook addin

    There should be option to disable or hide Addin icon and title in taskpane/sidepane header?

    Or there should be an option to customize header of sidepane/taskpane like setting background image or custom font in header?

  17. PLEASE!!! Remove the "Convert to Stocks" tag that pops onto the screen obscuring other data on the sheet.

    While the new stocks data type is fine, those of us NOT wanting Stocks are faced with a new persistent pop up tag suggesting we "convert" anything that kind of looks like a ticker symbol. This tag maddeningly blocks adjoining values that we NEED TO SEE while working.
