  1. 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.

  2. Make the E5 Developer Subscription Available To Existing Tenant!

    The requirement to activate a developer subscription to create a new tenant is very unreasonable. For example, I already have my own tenant, and bind a custom domain name for testing. Why should I be asked to create a new tenant to participate in the test of new subscription? Developer subscriptions are not free trials, and no one wants to have many abandoned tenants and accounts.

  3. Consolidation

    While applying the Consolidation option in excel, it shows as "Book 1" for all the consolidated sheets instead of a respective worksheet name.

  4. hiding calendar

    I use to hide calendar in Outlook in order to read mails, if you keep a flip icon/button to hide/release calendar/meetings list, it will be veryuseful instead of opening calendar or enabling calendar from view menu.

  5. Add support for web office add-ins development on Linux

    Hi,

    As the title says, I can't develop add-ins for web office on Linux.
    I followed the documentation on creating OneNote add-in, but when I run npm run start:web, I get this:

    Debugging is being started...
    App type: web
    Unable to start the dev server. Error: Platform not supported: linux
    Debugging started.

    Thanks in advance

  6. Allow expanding/collapsing paragraphs in OneNote JavaScript API

    It would be nice to allow JavaScript add-ins to expand or collapse a paragraph (currently performed when the user double-clicks a paragraph handle). When collapsed, the paragraph hides all child paragraphs.

    Ultimately I'd combine this feature with tag access in the JavaScript API (another feature request) to create an add-in where users could tag paragraphs and then expand/collapse all paragraphs with that tag at once. Useful for showing/hiding related data across the document.

  9. Close Pop Out window in Outlook after the message is deleted by an add-in

    When an Outlook Add-In deletes an email in the reading pane the message will be closed and the next older email is openen. When an Outlook Add-In is activated in an email that is viewed in a Pop Out window and the Add-In deletes the message, the Pop Out window stays open until it is closed by the user:

    Freature Request: Automaitcally close the Pop Out window when the message is deleted by an Add-In.

  10. Make API for accessing Automatically Expend Table Option available in office.js

    Currently office.js does not provide an API for accessing Automatically Expend Table Option or other auto correct options for tables.
    In VBscript you would use Application.AutoCorrect object. Having something like that would be very useful.

  13. Ability to get shareable URL of the Document, using which other users can Open it online

    Currently we can only get the document download URL using Office.content.document.url.

    We can kinda convert this URL to open it on online version, if we can split it into 2 parts to something like -
    [site URL + Library location]/_layouts/WordViewer.aspx?id=[document path]
    This method is tricky because, we don't exactly know, which part of the URL is their site URL and which is the Document path.
    Also this solution seems to be sharepoint/onedrive specific.
    Also it doesn't take you to the editor page, it goes to an intermediate page where user has to choose to edit in browser or desktop editor.

  15. Retrieve all Delve Profile details including custom properties

    We are trying to retrieve all the Delve/profile properties including custom properties.

    We have been testing the BETA (eg https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/profile/).

    We see the standard attributes but they do not seem to be populated (EG we entered Skills and have not seen them)

    We also added a custom property (Admin Name) as a Person and this custom property does not appear

    It would be really useful to have this working

    thanks!

  18. Provide way in VBA to know who, if anyone, is currently coauthoring a OneDrive/Office365 document

    There are certain functions and events (only tested in Excel .xlsm desktop) that don't work when a document is in coauthor mode using OneDrive/Office365 syncing. If only one person is in the file, the macros work fine. If more than one are in it and co-authoring it would be good to know so certain macros can be prevented from running that otherwise cause the "Reload document" message on the computer that didn't run the macro.
    Some of the VBA that doesn't work during coauthoring include all .FormatConditions code (even though you can manually add conditional formatting, doing it by VBA…

  19. Health status indicators for the Office Store or App Marketplace

    An idea for this feature comes from the current issue with migration from the Seller Dashboard into the Microsoft Partner Center, which was a complete Microsoft disaster from a system reliability perspective. We have apps in the Office Store and for over 8 days the customers cannot download or update apps from the Office Store, it's a Microsoft issue related to app migration to the Partner Center. Could you imagine that the Apple Store or Google Play totally doesn't work for over 7 days? Complete cut-off from important hotfixes for critical business apps? That's happened with the Office Store... As…

  20. Correctly Order Textboxes in Document Layout by Position

    When users insert content controls and the ordering of them matters, the OfficeJS API does not correctly order them if one is present within a textbox. The visual ordering appears to have no effect on the order in which OfficeJS reads content controls when there is one within textbox.

    Example:
    Inserting a Numerical Citations


    1. User inserts a citation

    2. User moves to next line and inserts a textbox

    3. Users inserts a citation within said textbox.

    4. Check the ordering as they are read by OfficeJS and see it is inconsistent with the visual ordering on the document.
