    Need Excel sheet as blackboard visible on desktop, which updates as I go...like a dashboard. Is there a way to have a dashboard as one's desktop? I am pretty sure a dashboard can be built with Excel, that would answer my question I guess...

  2. Stop using Internet Explorer for the desktop add-ins

    Either embed Webkit or use Edge - this has gone on long enough.

  3. Automation for guest accounts in SharePoint Online

    So I have a vendor whom we have shared a site with to allow the vendor to upload files. But it does not appear to be possible to automate this as it appears that only tenant users can authenticate. The only method available to the vendor guest user is via the browser GUI on sharepoint.com ; all other methods fail.

    Because of this limitation, Microsoft is effectively forcing us to create service accounts in Azure AD and hand out said credentials to external users for no other reason than to automate copying a few files. I do not feel that…

  5. Allow dialogs to be sized with pixels instead of only percentages

    Office.context.ui.displayDialogAsync gives us the ability to open a dialog of a certain size, but the size options are only in percents of the parents window.

    This could be fine if we could know the size of the parent window from an add-in - we could get it and do some calculations, but CORS blocks us from that.

    Using only percentages puts us in awkward situations where we have a dialog with a decent amount of content that we need to make responsive to a tiny window when there is still a lot of real estate available in the parent.

  6. Microsoft Teams: provide means to manage "Hidden Teams" for users

    In the Microsoft Teams client we'd like to move some teams to the "hidden teams" section of the teams list for certain users. We'd like to have an API for that.

    Background: some (executive) users are members of many teams but only actively work in some of them. For them, newly created teams shouldn't be displayed in "Your teams" but rather be accessible via "hidden teams", if necessary.

    (For our use case it might as well be sufficient to specify a list of users to hide the new team from. But an API would be more flexible.)

  8. 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.'

  9. Include a blocking feature in the iPad Outlook app

    I am continually plagued with unwanted emails on my Outlook app for my iPad. Nobody seems to do anything to produce a facility to block them. Using Outlook.com doesn’t solve the problem. Time to redesign the Outlook app for the iPad to include a means of blocking unwanted emails from various senders.

  10. Improve VBA IDE: Highlight start and end of Blocks e.g. If/End If, With/End With, Do/Loop etc

    It would be great if the VBA IDE would highlight...

    (a) The start and of Blocks such as If/End If. So if you highlighted the "If" the matching "End If" would also be highlighted. This would be great for both coding but also auditing inherited code.

    (b) Highlight incomplete Blocks: so if you start "If" it's red until such time the closing "End If" is added

  13. Allow customizing headers in file attachment requests to allow more modes of authentication

    Adding an attachment via addFileAttachmentAsync is currently very limited in how it handles authentication, for 2 reasons:
    1) When Outlook (desktop application, not OWA) requests the attachment, it first does an OPTIONS call, which is good, but does not set an Origin header, which is bad. This means CORS rules cannot be enforced properly.
    2) Outlook seems to also always set an "Authorization" header with value "Bearer" when requesting the file. It is common though to specify the authentication tokens as query string parameters. In this case, the server receives both an Authorization header and authentications tokens in the query…

  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!

  16. Onedrive support server-side copy files from one folder to another folder or save from shared folders.

    Sometimes, we need to save something from one folder to another. Sometimes, we need to save something from onedrive of other account(for example, save some folder shared by other to my own onedrive). I expect to have an API to perform the action in onedrive server side. In Chinese, most of the Cloud Storage have implemented this feature.

  19. Notify about the submission status

    I submitted my connector to your store but forgot to add an icon,
    would be nice if there was an option to cancel the submission.

    Would be great to know the estimated review waiting list and timing.
