  1. New standard number format for Excel: Versioning

    It would be nice to have a standard format for version numbers that can be sorted/conditionally-formatted like regular numbers. By version numbers I mean "2.1.0; 2.1.2; 2.2.0; 3.0.0" etc.

    I work in software development and use excel to track releases, this would be very helpful to have standard.

  2. Suite Link APIs

    While it is possible to add custom links to the suite bar by using the admin site, it would be useful to either provide a way to programmatically add/remove links for a user, or provide an admin tool to provide default pinned apps on the suite bar.

    For example, in an education tenant, we may want to provide a link to pin MS Classroom and a link to a SharePoint site for every student by default.

    Users should continue to be able to modify their apps, but we should have the ability to set default values.

    If there were client-side…

  3. Render Office.js task pane even if Excel is in the background

    I have observed that is Excel is hidden or if another window covers the Excel task pane, the Office.js add-in does not load. I have observed this behavior with Excel 2016 C2R on Windows.

    Please enhance Excel and/or the embedded browser to render the add-in regardless of the currently visibility. Thanks!

  4. Come back with the list of UI Fabric styles

    Now when the UI fabric site was changes there is no longer a way to find out the available component styles. Only the general syles are now listed but e.g. no description about what styles (class name) are available for e.g. a button.

    The React, Angular and other framework based options do not always work so it is important for developers to have the ability to adjust and make own altenatives.

  8. Add ability to create/update charts in PowerPoint using JavaScript API

    JavaScript API for PowerPoint is very limited at the moment. The only options we have are to insert text or picture. Presentations are all about the visualization, so it would be very cool if we have an option to add/update charts as well.

  11. Add Common Distribution Curve Images to Shapes in Powerpoint (Bellshaped curve, skewed distribution, 1 sided normal distribution, etc)

    Add Common Distribution Curve Images to Shapes in Powerpoint -(Bellshaped curve, skewed distribution, 1 sided normal distribution, etc)

    I often must communicate problems in terms of theoretical population distributions. This is for concepts only of course since actual distributions can be graphed in Excel.

  13. Provide more examples, for example how to file a MailBox.Item to SharePoint.

    I am learning about OWA add-ins but I cannot find anything about mailing an item. I was able to find an example on filing attachments but not about filing an Item

  14. Add Support for running batch operations like in Word and Excel

    Enable developers to add content to a Powerpoint file in a similar way that the Word 1.1 and Excel 1.1 API allow us to insert directly in document model

  16. Add Office client versions and on-premise version of Office Online server to compatiblity/availability information

    Currently it is very hard to find out, which APIs are available in the different Office client versions (2013, 2016) and impossible to find out which APIs are available in Office Online server on-premise.

    Please add this versioning information into the matrixes documenting which API is available in which version of Office.

  17. Problems, Problems, Problems

    we have big problems with the use of the Power Point API: The current version is full of bugs, versions are exchanged without prior notice, new versions are withdrawn ...

    Why is that? When to expect a debugged, final version??

  19. Linked images using <img> tags in Word desktop don't roundtrip to Word Online

    I'm developing an add-in for Word 2016 and online Word.

    In it, on the desktop version of Word, if I insert html content using document.setSelectedDataAsync with an image tag and URL to an image on our server, the image displays on the desktop version of Word. If I save the same file to OneDrive and show it on the online version of Word, the image does not display. If I wrap the image in an <a> tag with a link, the link shows up when I hover over the image in the online version of Word, but the image never…

  20. Excalc

    there are 2 calculators in a windows pc
    1.calc.exe
    2.excel.exe

    officially i use, excel for calculations more than i use calc

    if there would be a utility excalc.exe which can launch a very simple 100column x 100row excel grid calculator for a quick calculation it would be a great addition

    provided it should have a preloaded formula to perform any basic calculations
