  1. Return response for MailItem.ShowCategoriesDialog Method (Outlook)

    When calling MailItem.ShowCategoriesDialog programmatically, there is no way to tell if the dialog box is close due to the "ok" button, "cancel" button or "close (x)" button being clicked.

    Please add something like an integer return to indicate the close behavior.

      • Provide Active Directory Web Services support for User Profile Service

        In Federated Identity scenarios that require connecting to multiple Active Directory repositories using ADFS, there is no current way to use the User Profile service without connecting directly to the underlying LDAP/AD store. Instead, the User Profile service should support querying for user account information over Active Directory Web Services (ADWS) to better support Federated Identity in an organization using SharePoint and Claims-picking.

              • Expose Office API via Swagger.

                OK this is a radical idea from listening to @mkristensen talk about VS.NET tooling and how they are looking at supporting Swagger 2.0 to provide code generation for RESTful APIs in VSNET.

                http://devchat.tv/adventures-in-angular/019-aia-microsoft-tooling-with-mads-kristensen

                I looked up Swagger and their online documentation editor, and browser and here's an example

                http://petstore.swagger.wordnik.com/#!/pet/updatePet

                Which is surprisingly similar to Office 365's

                http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn600182(v=office.15).aspx

                I think Office 365 documentation on MSDN should still be the primary resource. Any future tie in to API-Sandbox would be awesome.

                But if VSNET starts to support auto-codegen (like the old days with WSDL/Soap Services) from Swagger documentation, then I can also…

                • Bindings is getting Removed for Table when Table is inside the Text Binding Controls

                  I have uploaded the code to one drive...here is the link

                  https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=AC13FB5219C13126!373&authkey=!APxbF470V75cCE4&ithint=file%2crar

                  Steps to reproduce:

                  1.Click the "Create content control button" to create the Text Binding.

                  2.Create table (3 cloumns and 5 rows) Inside the content control and then "Create Table Binding".the table bindings will be created for the table that you selected .

                  3.Click the button "GetandSetXML for ContentControl" to get and set the XML.

                  4.Once after the this, you can notice the Bindings for the table is getting lost.

                  Do let me know if u need more understanding on this scenario

                  please see the question I rased in…

                  • Provide access to a user identity object in apps for Office (specifically: Access)

                    It is currently not possible to retrieve the current user identity in apps for Office. I realize that this is rather useless for Task Pane apps in Word/Excel/PowerPoint, but it is VERY useful for Mail and Access content apps. It is required if you want to save the refresh token securely to know which user is talking to your app backend.

                        In Office 365, we would like to restrict sharing with certain external domains.

                        • Allow to change content app size using api

                          Usually Excel Online and app for Office are on the different domains, so we can not access parent window document. Ability to control application size would improve usability a lot.

                          • Make the functionality of the Office Applications (mainly Word and Excel) available "as a service" for Store/Mobile Apps.

                            Excerpt from Yammer conversation:

                            Hi groupmembers!

                            We're developing a serious Healthcare App for Windows (8) Store. Aiming on mobile.

                            What we have seen in demo's is a lot of Mail, Contacts and SharePoint. What we are looking for is a way to tap the power of Word and Excel for our Store App.

                            Please come up with a good suggestion!

                            What I mean is Word/Excel API's that works for Store/Mobile App development. No more, but certainly no less than that :-)

                            Jeremy Thake (Microsoft)

                            What do you mean by "Word API". When you say "Word API" do you mean Word…

                            • Allow to configure and extend the mapping of user profile attributes between the Azure AD and the SharePoint Online

                              Currently only a minimal set of AAD attributes is synchronized to SharePoint Online UPA (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh147510.aspx#section1). It should be possible to change and extend the list of properties that are synced and also allow the writeback of user property values from SPO to AAD.

                                    • Remove Changes Made by the Javascript API for Office from the Undo Stack

                                      I'm developing an app for Excel 2013. I have a binding, and I have an event tied to when text is updated in the binder. Text being updated fires the event which updates my sidebar app. This update causes my app to update a hidden column of 1s and 0s to control my conditional formatting, to highlight and unhighlight rows.

                                      The problem that I'm running into is that I have lost the ability to use the Undo command. When I update a cell, the app instantly updates the conditional highlighting control column. I then can't update the change that I…

                                      • Want to open the developer reference directly from Excel developer

                                        Hi,
                                        I want to open the developer reference directly from excel developer when it is open.
                                        Is there a way to do so by clicking only on the help (blue) button?
                                        Should I put the file I downloaded in a specific folder or do anything else?

                                        Fabio Perna

                                        • Offer Office 365 as part of MSDN subscriptions

                                          I suggest you offer Office 365 as part of MSDN subscriptions.

                                          I was extremely disappointed to see that when I login to my MSDN subscription and search for "Office", I don't see Office 365 listed as an available download.

                                          I pay for my MSDN subscription out of my own pocket, so the absence of Office 365 from MSDN subscriber downloads is a large impediment.
