  1. Load initialization scripts on start

    I wish Manifest file has a field of pre-load script (or html) url which allows Office products, such as Excel, executes cleanup and initialization process during start like how it has been done as VBA add-ins.

    There are certain cases (single add-in multiple task-pane, UI-less process) we cannot use session storage to store information. Currently we have to store them in local storage which might be still there after restart the host program. A pre-load script will be helpful in such cases to clean up unwanted local storage.

    In addition, it allows some automated process (like scheduled task) to be…

  2. Fix timezone bug in Outlook

    A few months ago I've found a bug/limitation when developing Outlook Calendar Add-in. When time zone in Appointment organizer mode is changed (dropdown), the time returned by Office.context.mailbox.item.start.getAsync() is aggregated with the hours of the timezone, when the selected timezone itself is not available to get.

    Let me clarify it with an example:

    1. My location time zone is CEST. I open an event and set the time to 7:00 and timezone to Singapore.Image

    2. then in the add-in I use Office.context.mailbox.item.start.getAsync() to get the start time. I receive the following string:

    Thu Oct 25 2018 01:00:00 GMT+0200 (Central European…

  3. Allow MEDIA_BUTTON broadcast to be sent to outside applications and services.

    We have developed an application for our customers that takes the MEDIA_BUTTON broadcast and uses it to trigger a barcode scan.
    It works in every situation except when Excel has an open document.
    In which situation the broadcast doesn't get out of Excel; neither other applications nor default system behavior of MEDIA_BUTTON works (can't put music on play/pause).

    Would that be possible to either change the way you receive the broadcast or to add an option for the user to choose whether or not they want Excel to take MEDIA_BUTTON input.

    Our customers would like to use our service in…

  6. Provide a VBA method to count cells for color set by conditional formatting

    I noticed others have asked for a way to count cells by color. Great idea, but while you're at it, there's no way in VBA to count cells by assessing the color property set by conditional formatting, either. It is possible to create a function that will count cells that have the color property set using the fill method, but it has to be set volatile. It appears that the color property for a cell is not the same for conditional formatting as when using fill. That's interesting, and might actually be useful; however, the method would need to test…

  8. Request for a body.appendAsync() method

    Hello,

    I’m working on a web add-in for Microsoft Outlook, and I’ve run into a few issues with Office.js’s body.setAsync() method.

    I’ve posted two questions to Stack Overflow related to my add-in’s use of the body.setAsync() method:

    - Base 64 signature images in the Outlook Web App are lost when I try to update the body of an email [link: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51736434/how-to-prevent-base-64-format-signature-images-being-dropped-in-outlook-web-app]

    - Getting the email body with body.getAsync() and then setting it with body.setAsync() causes line spacing issues in desktop Outlook platforms that use Word as the text editor [link: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51603265/line-spacing-increased-issue-when-updating-email-body-with-office-js]

    My add-in needs to add content to…

  9. Able to add Office built-in groups/controls to custom ribbon tabs in manifest.xml

    It is great that I am able to add my custom groups in the OfficeTab in manifest.xml for my JS add-in. However, it seems that I can only add custom buttons and menus in CustomTab. It will improve the usability if I am able to add the frequently-used Office built-in groups/controls in my custom tab in manifest.xml so that my users will not have to switch between different tabs.

  11. Have the ability to have graph templates save in a way that when you update them they will track through all the graphs in your document

    Right now if I edit a graph template my template changes aren't tracking and I have to go through and make the edits on each graph even though I used a template. I have more than 15 graphs in my document.

  15. Explain why retail version of Office 2019 received feature updates

    I noticed that the November update of the retail version of Office 2019 is version 1810, which contains feature updates. However, this contradicts the official Microsoft Office 2019 FAQ documentation (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4133312/office-2019-commercial-for-windows-and-mac-frequently-asked-questions).

    Can an explanation be given to this contradiction, please? As an add-in developer, I'd like to understand the official Microsoft stance on this so that I can plan accordingly.

  16. MS Access Developer Tools to add.

    This is for developing Access Databases and should be part of the Database Tools: One thing about developing Access Database or any database in that manner is the need to interview workers and analyze current work functions as part of database planning ... I think there needs to be some sort of automated questions document forms and other sheets to help organize and plan the database.

    I can see there are some database tools such as Analyze tables and database Documenter but those doesn't help much before the databases are developed.

  20. Is a web service necessary?

    Please add some more discussion about how the Javascript Add-In model works in disconnected mode with no access to the internet, if it is even possible. It is unclear from the introduction whether or not this is supported or how it is achieved.
