  2. Microsoft Teams: Enable @mentions in TO DO's tasks

    We would like to alert/mention someone in a task ("TO DOs" application) who is in the channel without assign this task to them.

    We are missing a kind of @mention feature in this tab, like Trello App has or we have on "Conversations" tab.

    Are there some developer considering/working on this?

  4. Enable Microsoft Bookings for 365 Enterprise E3 Developer

    Hi,

    I have been using Microsoft Bookings for a while until last year it suddenly was disabled for my account.
    I was using the outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/bookings/ url to access Bookings but are no longer able to.

    Also the "Business Apps (Free)" are not available for my E3 Developer subscription, but they are for the normal E3 which is weird.

    It would be great if Bookings or the Business Apps (Free) could be enabled for the E3 Developer subscription.

    Thanks!

  6. Open XML SDK - add a support to save Word docx as PDF. 3rd party tools are costly and do not render complex docx as SaveAs2 of Word Interop.

    Word Interop is a nice solution, yet very slow (comparing to OpenXml) and unreliable (we encountered that if a user clicks Ctrl+C to copy something, whilst Interop is running in a background, generating multiple documents, its content will be pasted onto one of those documents, although the user intended to paste it somewhere else) . There are 3rd party solutions to save as PDF from OpenXml, yet they do not render correctly our relatively complex invoices (header with image and table, footer with table and so on), so for now we ended up to generate them all as docx and…

  7. Email Address Drop Down Menu

    You used to save and display all of the email addresses that I would use while managing emails. I find it so frustrating that you now limit this list to the last five emails. I am constantly emailing people that I haven't spoken to in six months or so. The recent emails doesn't help.

    My work around is to go to my laptop and search for someone and then find their email. It used to be that this would just drop down.

    I don't know why you changed this feature. But I waste 10 minutes EVERY DAY searching for email…

  10. Default proofing Language

    Allow the default proofing language on an existing document to be changed, without automatically reverting back to the original. Example being language original being English US, manually changed to English UK, automatically reverted to English US. Changing default language in language settings only applies to new documents and does not fix the issue with existing documents. Informs the user that they are spelling items incorrectly, such as 'colour' being incorrect, despite the language being set to English UK, and trying to correct this to 'color.'

  11. OneNote.Application CurVer registry key incorrect for version 16+

    I noticed that if I install Office 2019 or Office 365, the following registry key is set to "OneNote.Application.15":

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\OneNote.Application\CurVer

    Version 15 corresponds to Office 2013. Is this a bug with the Office installer?

  12. VBA to WASM (web assembly) compiler

    VB/A runs on windows and mac, 32/64 bits, it's interpreted, and compiled (classic VB). Port the compiler for the WASM VM. It would probably then become possible to run VB/A macros in the Office Web Apps, on all supported platforms.

  13. Provide a way to get the Office 365 Version on the client side

    Office 365 has monthly versions (such as 1803, 1810, etc.). This version is displayed in the Office client application's Account tab.

    I couldn't find a way to programmatically get this Version number on the client side. There is only the usual full build number.

    Is there a way or can a way be provided, please?

  14. Find&Replace tool

    Why don't you add the possibility to apply the Find & Replace tool only to a text selection, as is done in Microsoft Excel? This would be much appreciated!

  17. ... use data of changes made on a document and time spent on it to make the user sure not to mistakenly close the doc without saving it.

    ... use data of changes made on a document and time spent on it to make the user sure not to mistakenly close the doc without saving it.
    This may happen when the open docs are so similar in content and everything, as happened for myself and 2hours effort disappeared. For example you can ask twice if the user is sure to close the doc without saving it.

  18. allow indentification of shared mailboxes using graph api

    The only way to identify if a user is actually a shared mailbox is using Powershell. You should also be able to identify shared mailboxes over other APIs such as graph. So that shared mailboxes can be managed from dynamic applications.

  19. Excel Angular Addin without any third-party needed

    As it's confusing, inconsistent and depending on third-party sources, I cannot make my Excel Angular Addin to work. I have followed step by step instructions for several times and for some reason it won't work for me.
    I successfully created a Excel JQuery Addin project, however, I really need to do it in Angular and it must be reliable and easy to build.
    I have professional experience with Angular 7 and I am sure other developers would be happy to be able to dev in Angular without any external complications/dependencies.

    Regards,
    Fernando

  20. Fix issue in "the new outlook" that limits the displayed recipients to 20.

    While using Office.context.mailbox.item.body.getAsync to get asyncContext, not all "to" and "cc" are retrieved on "The New Outlook", it seems only the first 20 are retrieved.
