  2. Allow for addin action to be an Outlook Swipe action in Outlook mobile

    Add-in actions need to be efficiently initiated and in a mobile environment, having the ability to link a Swipe gesture to a specific add-in action saves the user from having to open the email first.

    I think this flexibility would be a l great addition that both developers and users would love.

  3. Ability to inject data in to native PivotTable object

    Currently, you can use the PivotTable object and it's associated collections to create, edit, delete PivotTables. But currently, this relies on using Excel itself for the aggregation.

    It would be nice to instead be able to manually manipulate the PivotTable object and define hooks for expanding Hierarchies to perform custom aggregation.

    This would be useful for using analysis servers which aren't 100% XMLA compliant as well as any other services that want to perform some kind of aggregation on data not available in the worksheet.

  4. Delete Event flow should provide the details of the event

    Currently the Delete Calendar Event flow can send only the ID of the event that was just deleted. We have an application that needs to know the details of what was deleted in order to react appropriately.

  5. API for importing mail into a mailbox

    Similar to gmail's API ability to create new email messages inside a mailbox via the API, it would be ideal to have API control to insert and import messages into a mailbox. The API gmail has our what follows:
    https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/v1/reference/users/messages/import
    https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/v1/reference/users/messages/insert

    These allow for ability to create new messages inside a mailbox without having to send emails to a user.

  7. Allow Graph API to have granular mailbox access and not access to all mailboxes

    Since graph api access to mailboxes cannot be control by mailboxes, enterprise security will not approve the use of such API.

  8. autofit table width to contents

    Please add a method to the Table class to autosize the width of a table based on the content, just like Word already does under Table Layout -> AutoFit.

  11. Allow client-side insertion of OOXML

    Currently if you want to update an Office 365 document, the insertion of the OOXML can take a long time. From the conversation below, this is because this is a server-side request. Would it be possible to get a client-side insertion similar to the insertText method.

  13. Add support for updating hireDate, birthday, and preferredName in Graph API using client credentials

    We have a number of solutions in our enterprise using Graph API and have a requirement to update the birthday and hireDate property of a user. Apparently this isn't possible using Application Permissions per this Github issue - https://github.com/microsoftgraph/msgraph-sdk-dotnet/issues/296

  14. Add local attachments to a new MessageForm

    I am developing an Web add-in which basically decrypts SMIME content and displays it to the user. To achieve this, I'm creating a new display form using either displayNewMessageForm or displayReplyForm and populating it with the content. This works fine for mail with not attachments. However for mail with attachments, it would be great if there was a mechanism to add the attachments to the form without having to upload it to some server first. Since adding attachments stored locally can already be done manually, I don't see why it is so difficult to implement some programmatic way of achieving…

  15. Is Office.js Development Dead?

    It seems like there has been no significant updates since 2016 (maybe 2017) on new features added to Office.js. Has Microsoft abandoned this project? Is it Dead before it is even finished?

  16. Auto open addin in Office Online for Word when user has read privileges

    Custom Addins that are set to AutoOpen along with Word/Excel documents should auto open for site visitors or readers. Currently, users with read-only permissions have to click the open in desktop app or Live View in Browser link before the add-in will auto open. There should be an option to set an add-in to auto open in Reader view.

    Documents that are stored in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business document libraries and are set to open in Office Online open in Reader view by default for Site Visitors or User with Read Permissions. Add-ins set to auto open don't…

  18. Set new file name with Word.DocumentCreated

    When creating a new document, there needs to be the ability to set the initial file name for the new document. Not save the document, just define a name to make it easier for users to follow company standards. The user can be free to change the name when first saving the document.

  19. Ability to insert a floating picture/image and adjust top/left position and text wrapping

    Similar to insertInlinePictureFromBase64() I need an option to insert an image that floats above or below the text and can be positioned with top and left coordinates, relative to page, margins and so on. Or the ability to change the "inline" pictures to floating pictures. These will need to work in headers and footers as well.

  20. Copy and paste

    I want to suggest to you to make the option for a copy-paste function. Usually, we are getting one thing to copy, what if we are could make Many!!!!? For example, in Microsoft Word, I can copy one word or sentences but I want to copy many words and sentences separately and when it comes to pasting it could show us pop-ups of multiple copies and paste the one we want to the certain places. I was copying the words from the first page to the end and it was annoying to copy and paste one by one. After that,…
