  1. Allow better viewing of subtasks

    When there are tasks that are subtasks it is difficult for users that are given a link or see it in their task list to know what the parent tasks is. When viewing the task in view or edit mode it would be helpful to see what the parent is or be able to easily link to it.

    • Enable Azure Workflows to Call O365 APIs

      As it stands, neither on-premise or O365 based workflows can call O365 APIs using Access Tokens. Only Basic Auth works. It would be great to be able to call O365 APIs from simple workflows built using the HttpSend activity.

      • Extend Office 365 Roadmap to Address Private Cloud Products

        Whether or not Office 365 makes sense in a particular environment isn’t a given and in a lot of real-world cases, the subject matter of intense planning & debate. Unfortunately, we’re only afforded this easily understood roadmap for one half of the question that many customers have to ponder – Which path will they follow?

        For many customers considering an on-premises / private cloud solution, it can be exceedingly difficult to fully understand where the functional differences are today, let alone where they’ll be tomorrow.

        Having new or planned on-premises/private cloud features depicted in a similar roadmap would be an…

        • Allow Mail Apps to add custom email format address to new mail item "To" list

          Extend the mailitem.to.addAsync() method to accept the custom email formats i.e 'Kiran123@/CO=OT' or.'RFAX:KIRAN@/FN=111/VN=1111' etc.
          Currently "Office.cast.item.toMessageCompose(item).to.addAsyc()" method is not accepting any custom email address. It is throwing the following error message.

          "No valid recipients were provided"

          • Add SlideSelectionChanged event for Powerpoint in the JavaScript API

            The JavaScript API for Office should be enhanced so developers have an event notifying if the current slide in the normal / edit mode is changed. This would allow for more contextual user interaction.

              • Enable Apps for Word, Excel and PowerPoint in Office Web Apps

                Apps for Office only run client side for Word, Excel and PowerPoint. OWA should support them as well.

                • Add support for pure server side apps (bots)

                  i'm looking at the new o365 API for creating an email bot that can send reminders to people. This means that the user for the app is not a real person but an app authenticating via code. As far as i understand that is not supported right now, but it would be very nice :)

                  If there are work arounds or clever ways of doing this already, i'd be interested in that as well

                      • "Update Available" Badges on SiteContents

                        It's a pain to identify manually all Apps that are currently offering an update. Users should see a badge on the App Launcher as soon as an update is available.

                        • Store custom data at the user (like an mdb in the users own filesystem)

                          I like to be able to provide custom data storage - inside the users own office365 - for the users of my applications, like https://www.dropbox.com/developers/datastore .

                          With that I would be able to create applications without the need to provide and maintain a data backend. And the user would not need to rely on (or trust) a database maintained by me.

                          With an easy to use api (like azure mobile services).

                                Currently when you submit an app to office store, you have to enter app version, this has to match the version defined in manifest, this seems redundant to me, can we remove this field from the submission form. App manifest describes the version of the app and having to enter it again during submission seems redundant to me additionally the app validation fails when they don't match, don't believe this is called out anywhere in policy, I could be wrong.

                                    • Excel Apps - Enable Data validation support

                                      Data Validation support is a key feature requirement for using Office Apps for OLTP systems.
                                      The main idea is to fill the gap between VSTO features and Office Apps. This will help in easy portability of VSTO based apps to Office apps.

                                      • Provide access to app validation reports

                                        Currently you can only see the app validation report for your last submission, if you've had multiple submissions there is no history available. Make it work similar to windows store and windows phone seller portal

                                        • Server error when the user has a Room contact

                                          When making a request to:
                                          https://outlook.office365.com/EWS/OData/Users(';<user>@<domain>.onmicrosoft.com')/Contacts

                                          If the user has a Room as a contact. i.e. From https://outlook.office365.com, go to People/Directory/All Rooms. Select a room, then "Add to Contacts"

                                          Then the request fails with:
