  1. Update Visual Studio Development Tools for Office 2013 SP1 and OpenXML SDK

    As Microsoft has released SP1 for Office 2013, which includes some important features included like content app support in PowerPoint, But the Office development tools are not yet updated and also OpenXML is also not updated yet. I would suggest to update both these tools.

    • Allow mail apps to be OWA only

      The new Mail Apps make adding functionality to OWA very easy, however they lack some of the power of a full-on Outlook addin. I suspect that a common use case will be to create a full-powered addin, and a "lite" mail app that handles what it can for OWA. At present, this doesn't work because the mail app shows up in both. Furthermore, it is possible to create functionality that only applies to one client or the other. It should be possible to specify an app as belonging to OWA or to Outlook.

      • VBA method for launching an app programmatically

        For a better integration of apps into the software, it would be nice to be able to launch a specific app programmatically from a macro.

        It could also allow for a better interactivity by displaying a specific content or task pane app based on specific events, such as clicking on a shape button, or via a keyboard shortcut, etc...

        • Office Apps for all Clients Applications

          I saw a lot of devs and customers being confused caused by the point that Apps are not available across all Office client applications. Especially OneNote would be a great benefit. OneNote is one of the best Apps I've ever used. Can't imagine my daily business without OneNote. We've collected several ideas which would enhance OneNote even more and make customer more productive.

          • Create REST methods for bulk object retrieval

            For reporting purposes we would like to have REST methods to retrieve metadata about objects in bulk. Right now we have to retrieve the list of objects first, then get metadata about each of them. This is definitely a very inefficient way to build reports. Essentially, would like a REST method that allows to query for the following objects AND specify fields we want to see in the query results, such as created and last modified dates, author, number of items (in a list), size, permissions, etc. We believe that having such REST methods for Sites, Lists and libraries, and…

                  Hi folks,

                  We’ve added some changes to our documentation to better cover our REST APIs. For existing APIs (such as the list, list items, folders, and files APIs), we added additional documentation in MSDN. Moving forward, we are trying our best to fully document new REST APIs, an example of which is the new Files API included in the recently-announced Office 365 APIs. Please let us know what you think — we’re happy to make changes based on constructive criticism.

                  Thanks!

                  Make possible to add an App to the list of Favorites Apps. Favorites Aps should be available on the Home ribbon tab and/or available from the Quick Access Toolbar.

                  • VBA Style Embedded IDE in Office

                    One thing that I miss a lot is to have the ability to write .Net code for Excel with the simplicity of the VBA editor. VSTO is great for IT professionals but impractical for most advanced Excel users as most users are not privileged to install applications directly in large companies (so distributing an excel based model internally is impossible, and non-advanced users would not touch a spreadsheet which is too complicated to set up).

                    The way VBA works is brillant, we have a single self contained spreadsheet that requires no installation, has no dependencies, and for which creating user-defined…

                    • Office 365 Rest API : Restrict access to specific room calendars only

                      With Microsoft Graph/O365 REST Apis, we can setup an application to provide access to mailboxes through API. This works. However, I'd like to know if there is a way to restrict such access to specific room mailboxes only?

                      If it is not supported, can microsoft team provide this feature and is there any other way for now (other than rest apis) to perform read/write operations for limited mailboxes?

                      • Please provide the ability to move O365 tenant Data Region move in the Office Developer Program

                        Currently when we sign up for the Office Developer Program and create and O365 Subscription, the tenant is set to North America. This causes the inability to test add-in and functionality in the data center local to developer's location. Can you please provide the ability for O365 data region to be able to move? This solves latency and data sovereignty issues.

                        • Keep add-in alive when user closes task pane

                          When the user closes the web add-in task pane, the web add-in is terminated for that workbook with no warning. I currently see at least four distinct issues:
                          - any in-progress operation may be interrupted with unpredictable results
                          - The add-in’s Excel event processing and handling is terminated. So, there is no longer any reaction to user gestures such as editing a cell or changing the selection
                          - The user steps needed to re-open the task pane (to re-attach the add-in really) are non-obvious for the average user
                          - If the user does discover how to re-insert the add-in, the…

                              HI
                              why we cant use count or sum cells by background color as a directly function in Excel.
                              It mean Microsoft development team can't resolve it.
                              why we most write some codes in vb6 module for this???
                              why we can't use it directly in Excel formulas???

                              best regards

                                In order for protected content to be displayable in Word as part of a larger (unprotected) document, Copy of some document regions must be prevented. This is possible today with VSTO Add-Ins, by reacting to selection changes and clearing the selection when necessary, impossible with the current Javascript API.
