  1. Make the E5 Developer Subscription Available To Existing Developers

    Microsoft have decided to make the E5 Developer Subscription available to only new developer subscriptions. Can this be made available to existing developers?

  2. Explains exactly what is an "active developer activity" before deletion

    The new subscription model is now for 90 days with auto renewal as long as there are "active developer activities" but it's written nowhere what exactly is an "active developer activity".

    Please then explains in detail.

    For example, create a sharepoint site? Add a webpart to a page? Deploy a spfx solution in the app catalaog?

  3. Add EM+S to Office 365 Development Subscription

    On my Office 365 Dev Subscription, I am trying to do a PoC for Azure AD joining Windows 10 machines. But that requires an intune subscription. I think you will get more development work out of EM+S products, if you include it with the dev subscription.

  4. Special Cells method

    In Excel API, I can't choose cells based if they have formulas or values.

    In VBA, I can do that by using Range.SpecialCells method. Also, I can specify if I want to get only text values, numbers, errors and/or booleans.

    Please, support this for Excel JavaScript API, because currently, I'm looping all the worksheet's used range rectangle to get the values, and my loops spend a lot of time skipping blank cells.

  5. Add array formula support to the Excel Office Add-In API

    We would like to have array formula support available in the office.js API. We use these heavily in our VSTO Excel Add-in in combination with user defined functions to display function output in multiple cells. Having this feature available would allow us to build the Excel Office Add-in we would like to build.

    For other forum browsers, here is an example of an array formula.
    https://www.ablebits.com/office-addins-blog/2015/02/25/array-formulas-functions-excel/#array-formula-intro

    Please note that while Binding.setDataAsync() in the office.js API supports adding formulas to a range of cells, you cannot see or edit the formula after adding.

  6. Benefits for Office 365 Developer Program

    There is no way to access office 365 developer program benefits. The link sent in the activation email points to the page that does not exist. There is no page with links to particular benefits as well.

  7. Support Compose add-ins on Outlook for Mac

    I'm re-opening this idea (https://officespdev.uservoice.com/forums/224641-feature-requests-and-feedback/suggestions/12947451-support-mac-compose-in-add-ins) that was posted in March and replied to in October of this year. Compose add-ins are NOT supported on the 2016 Outlook Mac client as far as I can tell (I'm running v15.29 (161115) with Office Insider Fast); Compose add-ins ARE available in Word, Excel, etc. but not Outlook. Please let us know when and if that will be remedied. Thanks!

  8. Content control support in Word Online

    I've posted about this here:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/officeonline-word_online/content-control-support-in-word-online/0f33ba70-9fe0-4990-9f09-db5ce7f3a8c7?tm=1460747722010

    The JavaScript API provides a lot of functionalities around Content Controls, so I don't really understand why these are not supported in Word Online.

    Will we have this support eventually? Do we have any estimated date for that?

  13. auto run plug-in (user/app defined)

    Allow user to install plug-in with the option to auto-run the app (or plug-in as the option to turn on auto-run) so the user doesn't have to active the plug-in each time.

  14. 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.

  15. Provide at least two licenses in O365 Developer Pack

    You can't test user permissions and other things with a single admin user. Running as admin isn't really best practice when developing. Agreed?

  16. Please fix https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/office/support

    Some key links on this page are broken, which makes it hard for developers to get help.
    (1) dxipfb@microsoft.com bounce email back, because it only accept emails from within Microsoft.
    (2) "Give feedback about this page" link at the bottom of the page links to no where. So it can't be used to provide you feedback at all.

  19. Add an event that can be subscribed to when a user makes a change to a cell.

    This might look not so important in many use cases. However, when the add-in takes in data from the worksheets and saves them through API calls, it becomes quite useful for a good user experience. Currently, users would need to click on a button in the add-in that would save all of the rows in one go. However, It would be nice if they don't require to do that and the changes can be saved real-time.

  20. Email address not working on: https://github.com/OfficeDev?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=add-in&type=&language=

    I have tried to send an email to the address: officedev@microsoft.com and it got returned. It might be possible that only certain people can do this, if so, maybe you should hide it from the site? Thanks
