  2. Add support for Document.getFileAsync method in Volume licensed versions of Office Excel

    I am attempting to use the Document.getFileAsync method in Office Excel 2016 on Windows. Executing the method fails with an "Permission Denied" error.

    Error code: 7000
    Error name: "Permission Denied"
    Error message: "You don't have sufficient permissions for this action."

    This functionality is critical to our Add-in and we have many customers that use this 2016 volume licensed version of Office. They are not able to upgrade since the version is locked down at 16.0.4266.1001.

  4. Change Importance property in Outlook javascript add-in

    According to the specification https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4021#page-32 we should use a header in this case, but apparently Internet Headers do not allow to change this specific header.

  7. Add support for calculated fields in a Pivot Table

    I cannot find a way to add calculated fields to a PivotTable in Office JS.
    In VBA there was CalculatedFields where we can add value fields with excel formula expression.

    Is it not supported, if yes then is it their in the to do list and when can we expect to have it?

  8. Reverse VLookUp/ WLookUp

    The LookUp formulas are very powerful tools for any kind of application. Often you are not only searching for the first corresponding value in an Excel sheet, but also for the last corresponding value in an Excel sheet. So reverse references would be very useful.
    The Reverse VLookUp should therefore search from bottom to top in the matrix.
    The Reverse WLookUp should therefore search from right to left in the matrix.

  9. add a visible non-visible property to all add-ins

    There should be a property which tells if the taskpane add-in is currently visible on the screen, and also an event for any change in this property. I know there is the document.visibilty property but it is not reliable especially in the desktop version

  14. pass parameters from the command line into Office.initialize.

    Currently we launch the Addin (saved workbook) on desktop by running excel.exe via the command prompt as we have to pass some parameters to the addin.

    But I cant find any way to read these command line arguments in the addins Office.initialize.

  15. Support for high DPI taskpanes

    Office now supports high-DPI and per-monitor DPI awareness, but custom task-panes do not. Add-in custom task panes are always hosted in a system aware host window and there is no way to indicate our add-in is high-DPI and multi-monitor DPI aware. Our customers therefore only see a low resolution user interface in the task panes. The Excel built-in task panes support high-DPI so this shouldn't be too difficult, maybe a registry setting indicating the add-in supports high-DPI or even an extra parameter to ICTPFactory.CreateCTP indicating support.

  16. More powerful editable regions (within protected docs)

    This idea is based on Macromedia Contribute (from 20 years ago). It was a decent tool for collaborative content management in its day.

    Imagine that you're a secretary, tasked with compiling the annual report. The report summarizes dozens of different projects and each project manager is responsible for authoring a project sub-report.

    Rather than compile dozens of reports into a final report, you create a single Word doc, define editable regions within it, assign each region to the person(s) who can edit it, set limits on usable styles, word limit (etc) for each region, then protect the document to lock…

  18. Office.context.ui.displayDialogAsync window mis-positioned by OWA in multimonitor environment

    When an Outlook Add-In starts a displayDialogAsync window the window is not centered on the screen when Outlook is on a non-default monitor. The dialog window is displayed too low and too far right so to be slightly into the middle monitor when launched on the left monitor. When launched on the right monitor it is too low and too ar left so as to be slightly into the middle monitor. It works correctly if Outlook is on the #1 monitor.

  20. Add FirstName and LastName to Office.EmailAddressDetails interface

    The current implementation of the Office.EmailAddressDetails interface contains the displayName property.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/javascript/api/outlook/office.emailaddressdetails?view=outlook-js-preview

    It is hard to determine the first and last names from the displayName string. Is it possible to add the FirstName and LastName properties at least for Exchange Online/Outlook 365 users?
