  1. Fix for issue causing Split View to be disabled when using createDocument to open document with taskpane attached

    So we've discovered that when using createDocument() to open a new document, if that document has a task pane associated with it that's set to auto-open with the document, the "Split" view (under View tab) will be forever disabled. The document is in "Print Layout" mode (default), and for some reason this particular document is causing "Split" to be disabled.

    Create a registry key to not have the slider act upon a cached public folder like Outlook 2013.

  7. Default target framework of Office Addins template should be ASP.NET Core

    Currently, the default solution of an Office Addins generates two projects that targets .NET Framework 4.6.x. Microsoft should change it to ASP.NET Core. There is a way to adapt the manifest file as seem in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/53991876/change-target-framework-of-a-office-addins-project-from-net-framework-to-net-c/53993432 , but It would be great if the keyword ~remoteAppUrl could refer to another address.
    I see this might be a problem as .NET Core is optional when installing VS and might escalate to a broader discusstion.
    Also, as asyncronous JavaScript code freaks out migrating VBA (and even web) developers, shouldn't the default template be already in TypeScript (or at least be in the…

  8. OnSend for Outlook add-ins on desktop client

    Currently the OnSend feature does not work for the desktop client version of Outlook, as stated in the feature documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/add-ins/outlook-on-send-addins):

    "The on send feature is currently supported for Outlook on the web in Office 365, Exchange 2016 on-premises (Cumulative Update 6 or later), and Exchange 2019 on-premises (Cumulative Update 1 or later)."

    Please enable the feature for the desktop client as well.

  11. Ability to programmatic update the Excel Add-in cache or other automation way

    Our Add-in deals dynamic server address so we need to update the manifest frequently. The only way to update the Add-in cache is to refresh and insert again, is it possible to do it in automation?

  13. API to move cursor + text selection for Outlook/Office add-in

    API to move cursor + text selection for Outlook/Office add-in.
    If we are changing the compose text it might be nice to be able to highlight the insertion/modification for the user.

  17. Programmatically perform actions when an email message is received

    VSTO provides some events like NewMail/NewMailEx which gets trigger when one or more new items are received in the Inbox.

    Looks like launching of add-in based on event like new email is not supported.

    As suggested by Outlook-Add in Engineering team adding this on this forum to consider it.
