  2. Execute an add-in function when a tagged document is opened

    Would it be possible to conditionally open an add-in task pane when the add-in:
    - is tagged/embedded in the document
    - has examined the state of the document and decided that the task pane needs to be opened (when user interaction is needed, for instance)

    This is currently not possible with the office-js model.

  6. Allow PowerPoint API to format font without selecting.

    Would be great if the PPT API gave you control over the font formatting as the Word API does. That way an add-in could create part of the presentation.with the formatting already done for you. It'd also be nice if the API could detect the font on screen without needing it to be selected.

  9. [SharePoint] Clear logic for views' filters

    When filtering a view (in Edit View, "Show items only when the following is true:") on SharePoint we do not know if :

    Assertion 1
    AND
    Assertion 2
    AND
    Assertion 3

    Means

    Assertion 1 AND (Assertion 2 AND (Assertion 3)), or Assertion 1 AND Assertion 2 AND Assertion 3, etc...

    Which is completely different !! Please indicate at least the way the soft understands it.

  10. Provide debugging support for DAO, at least give specific error feedback when there is a syntax or context error.

    MS has reportedly decided to support and improve the DAO offering. Please add debugging tools to provide specific feedback when the DAO statement syntax parsing logic finds a coding error.

  11. File-New Extensibility

    We currently have an add-in that runs in a task pane. This add-in allows the user to create new documents based on templates in the user's SharePoint or OneDrive.

    In order to provide our users with a more Office-aligned experience, we would like to display our add-in directly in the File-New canvas.

    Do you have any plans to support this?

  12. Allow comments needed for VML

    Because the Outlook client uses Word as rendering the use of HTML is very limited. To work around this comments like this "<!--[if gte mso 9]>" is used to insert VML when rendered in a client.

    However these tags are stripped away when using item.body.setSelectedDataAsync to insert HTML from an add-in.

    Please allow these comments tags to control VML to be passed through.

  13. Provide a mechanism for deploying an add-in to a group of users and specify property bag of settings to apply to the group

    We already have a way of deploying add-ins to group of users within a tenant, but it would streamline a lot of scenarios if during that deployment for an add-in to a group that a "property bag" of settings/configuration could also be specified. This would then be available via the Office.js API.

    Here's one very realistic use case scenario:

    Commercial third party add-ins would require some form of subscription/licensing engine, consider a subscription that an organization would buy simplifies down to a subscription id. The question is really then around how do we bind users to this subscription id?

    Here's…

  14. Extensions Permission and more...

    Allow developers/tenant admins to configure apps so that schema extension properties. Since the new Graph Explorer has been made available last week, we constantly run into 403 errors. I would like to do the same for a Document Library (aka Drive) then, the API returns bad request because there isn't an API in the first place.

  15. Provide access to the Master Categories list

    The Outlook Object Model provides access to a Mailbox's list of categories and category colors, so it would be great if this list was added to Office.context.mailbox as well.

  17. Section control and multiple slides

    It'd be great if the PPT API could give you control over slide sections and detect which section you are currently working under. And if you had control over all the slides in that section rather than just the current slide. That way if you needed a set of slide to look extremely similar you could control them all at once. Also the creation of sections and multiple slides would be great!

  19. Make values of Appointment available in Organizer mode

    I would like to see the same property values being available to the Organizer (compose mode) as are available to the Attendee (read mode). Currently you can create an appointment and sent it out to the attendees and then if you reopen the appointment afterwards then the object doesn't even have an ID that you can read or retrieve and that is just one thing - there are many other attributes that aren't available and that can't be retrieved async either.

  20. Support not only guids in GetRealmFromTargetUrl in TokenHelper.cs

    On-premises it is possible to assign a new Realm to any string using Set-SPAuthenticationRealm cmdlet.
    GetRealmFromTargetUrl in TokenHelper.cs from Visual Studio templates does not take that into account. This method validates the determined realm against Guid.TryParse as you can see here:
    if (bearerResponseHeader.Length >= realmIndex + 36)
    {

    string targetRealm = bearerResponseHeader.Substring(realmIndex, 36);
    
    

    Guid realmGuid;

    if (Guid.TryParse(targetRealm, out realmGuid))
    {
    return targetRealm;
    }

    }

    So, if you have changed the realm to a string which cannot be converted to guid, you will get a 401 Unauthorized if you e.g. try to access the host via CreateUserClientContextForSPHost().

    That would be really…
