  2. Microsoft Excel Professional 2013 DOESN'T always SORT correctly

    An add-in is not necessary.

    What IS NECESSARY is for the Excel Developers to FIX Excel 2013 Professional so that it sorts correctly.

    I've reported previously that when sorting colums, Excel does no sort items correctly:

    Take for example, :

  3. Token from getCallbackTokenAsync() is broken for single Appointment Occurrence

    The GetItem request fails with error "Data is corrupt., Store ID isn't an ID of a folder, item or mailbox.", if you use the token resulting from getCallbackTokenAsync() to request the appointment occurence.

    The same request works if you use the makeEwsRequestAsync() method, but this is unacceptable, as it is far more cumbersome to work with the response. I want to use the EWS manage API on an ASP.NET MVC server.

  5. Allow Office Add-ins to be persistent - to stay open as you move from document to document...

    A productivity taskpane/add-in, by definition, is a often a tool a user would use on every document.

    The current implementation requires a user go to the add-in Ribbon, click a button etc.

    Ideally a user setting would allow an Add-in to stay open all the time.

  6. Separate Sidebar scroll from Main Window scroll

    On the Office Fabric homepage (http://dev.office.com/fabric#/), I think it would be easier to read the documentation if the main window scrolled separate from the sidebar view.

  7. Level types of List

    I use JavaScript SDK for Office Add-ins to create an application for Word. You know we can use list object (https://dev.office.com/reference/add-ins/word/list) to make numeration for Paragraph, but I would like to use cross-link for that scenario. If the number of a paragraph was changed cross-link also has to be changed. Is it working scenario in the current edition of SDK?
    Also, I can't change the level type of list when I try to create a new one from Paragraph. By default level type is Bullet. Any methods or properties to change.

  8. automated forms documents

    i work for a big education organization and received a request from the teachers about functionality they are using in google docs:
    - prepare a document template, being a form with some questions. is it an exam, survey, or an application form.
    - share the document with word online, so the students may edit the document, give answers, fill the gaps etc. but it is not THE document - it's the difference between 'document' and 'template' - each time new user access the temple, a new instance is created
    - on the end, the document is not saved, but there…

  10. Trigger Presentation Mode in PowerPoint

    Add functionality to trigger the presentation from within a taskpane add-in.
    Add the following function to the library: Document.setActiveViewAsync
    Having F5 reload the add-in is rather useless.

  12. Naked floating command bar

    It's not my idea. It's actually your idea. Please give us a way to replicate the genius of Word's mini toolbar. You know, the one that:

    ...pops up every time a certain event occurs (e.g., up text selection)

    ...dynamically changes location (e.g., at the insertion point)

    ...is buck naked. no title bar. no border. just a bunch of little icons in their birthday suits,

    ...that you didn't know you needed, but now can't live without.

    Or it would be nice if we could just get rid of the title bar when calling a window form the dialog API, or remove…

  14. Avoid closing Word Online browser tab, while saving is not finished

    It would be great to avoid tab to be closed by user when saving of the "office-online document" is not finished.
    For example by prompting a "confirm" message "Your document is not allready saved, do you really want to close this tab without saving last modifications ?"

  15. Add a close button to newly created tab by add-in

    Add a close button to the tabs or some way to close the tabs by add-in, so that user can end the current session/logout and move for another without mess with previous application.

    Thanks

  17. Access shared content for OneNote

    I am integrating OneNote in my application. Using https://www.onenote.com/api/v1.0/me/notes/notebooks api I am able to fetch all the notebooks that belonged to a particular user. Let's say a user A has 5 notebooks of his own and 2 shared notebooks. Let's say NoteBook6 is shared by user which is part of organization same A. And NoteBook7 is shared by external user.

    In my application I want to access all these 7 notebooks which user can access. I tried this using MS Graph API as well as OneNote api but I am able to access only 5 notebooks owned by the user.

  19. Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync always generates meeting requests for calendar items

    When using a Mail Add-in in OWA it is possible to save a calendar item using the Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync method in the Office JavaScript API. If the calendar item contains attendees then all of these attendees receive meeting requests each time the Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync method is called.

    To get the ItemId for a calendar item you have to call Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync method. So if you want to access the calendar item through EWS there is no option but to call Office.context.mailbox.item.saveAsync to save the item. And this call will generate meeting requests to the attendees.

    Would it be possible to add an extra…

  20. Photo Editing

    Microsoft is no doubt a powerhouse in many different areas surrounding our businesses and personal lives. Keeping us organized and streamlining our daily tasks. How about Photo Editing. How many of us have photo editing apps on our tablets and phones?!

    I think Microsoft should concentrate on giving Photoshop, Elements and Lightroom some serious competition. Elements is to complicated without some kind of class to help you along the way. So, Microsoft give us an easy to use powerhouse photo editing product!! :)
