  1. Support webhook for Microsoft Teams using Graph API

    Customer want O365 Teams to support webhook so it can push events to 3rd party security vendors to perform real-time inspection on the email conversation in private Teams

    O365 Teams Graph API doesn’t support webhook for email conversation, so users are not confident to communicate via Teams as it lacks the protection of TM-CAS supplementary security.

      Group conversations already have support for change notifications. This document here explains how to set up a subscription https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/concepts/webhooks . More information on Groups can be seen here too https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/api-reference/v1.0/resources/conversation.

      Please clarify more if you feel this doesn’t support your scenario.

      GraphExplorer is nice tool - why not give a way for ordinary non-admin end user ability to see which sharepoint they are member of?

        • Custom properties for Excel Addin

          We can read/update custom properties in Word. It would be great if we can have similar function in Excel also.

            • Worksheet password protection

              We are also concerned about the issue mentioned on this post:

              http://stackoverflow.com/questions/38847193/excel-office-add-in-api-worksheet-protection-password

              Currently we are able to protect and unprotect a worksheet. What we need is an API for password protection of worksheets which the end user would not know as this is will make the worksheets on OneDrive more secure for use.

                • API for host information

                  We need host information for tracking environments and reproducing errors.
                  The method with requirements checking and the undocumented feature with reading the sessionStorage or querystring are painful as requirements change and undocumented features disappear.

                  Office.js could provide an API for this, as its internally use host information to load custom host scripts.

                        • Excel - Add CopyWorksheet

                          We have a need to repeat the same formatted Worksheet over and over based on selections made by the user. It would be great to setup a template so that same worksheet can be copied. The worksheet has all formatting including printing stuff in place already. Be great to just be able to copy that and fill in the data.

                          • Expose Workbook events via Excel JavaScript API

                            Similar to Document.SelectionChanged event, the following Workbook-level events would be useful to have exposed via the JavaScript API (in no particular order):

                            Activate,Deactivate
                            BeforeSave,AfterSave
                            BeforeClose
                            Shutdown
                            SheetActivate,SheetDeactivate
                            SheetBeforeDoubleClick
                            SheetBeforeRightClick
                            SheetChange
                            SheetSelectionChange

                            • Add a method to copy a sheet with all data and formatting because there are no back-up or undo options for add-ins.

                              Since there is no way to cancel the changes made by an add-in, we need to provide users with backup options.

                              The current version of JavaScript API for Excel doesn't have a method for copying a sheet with its data and formatting, there are no elegant and fast workarounds available.

                              Could you please let us know if it's possible to add this method to JavaScript API for Excel?

                              • Allow Office Add-in in Excel to configure a cell so that user chooses value from a list of values

                                Enhance the Office JavaScript APIs (for Excel 2016+) to expose a mechanism (perhaps a Validation relationship or property) that allows the developer to configure a cell so that the end-user selects the value for the cell by picking from a list of values. The list of values might be specified by some other range. In a VSTO add-in (and native Excel) this can be achieved by configuring the Data Validation properties on a cell/range.

                                  • Make ItemAttachment content available through Office 365 Mail REST API

                                    I've been having a lot of success using the Office 365 Mail REST API. However, when trying to retrieve email messages that are attached to other emails (i.e., Item Attachments like .msg files), the REST API does not deliver.

                                    When I make a GET request like this for an email that has a .msg file attached to it, I get all the attachment properties *except* the "Item" property, which should contain the attachment (according to the Office 365 Mail API resource guide: https://msdn.microsoft.com/office/office365/APi/complex-types-for-mail-contacts-calendar#RESTAPIResourcesItemAttachment)

                                    GET: https://outlook.office365.com/api/v1.0/me/messages/{messageid}/attachments

                                    • Triggers for Onedrive for Business on IFTTT

                                      I'd like to be notified on our Slack channel about new files being added to a specific folder on Onedrive for Business. A trigger for new files would help!

                                      • Office 365 Unified APi support for "External Users"

                                        Office 365 supports "External users" if the external user has a Microsoft or work/school type of account.

                                        https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Share-sites-or-documents-with-people-outside-your-organization-80e49744-e30f-44db-8d51-16661b1d4232?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                                        But the Office 365 Unified API doesn't support login and showing what the "external user" has shared to them through the Unified API (https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me)

                                        I would like to be able to add a user to Azure AD, and provide the same login process as other Office 365 users, and then my Azure Web App can show them a customized view of what has been shared with them through the Unified API.

                                        • Method for determing which Office Application an Add-In is running in

                                          Currently, an Add-In can be setup to be runnable in Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc...

                                          There are certain API features that are available to some of the Office Applications but not others; In addition, the availability of these features differ based on platform (fat clients, web, ipad, etc...). As such, we may choose to use TableData for an Add-In that is loaded in Excel, but HTML for the same Add-In loaded in Word.

                                          Right now, we use the context.document.url property to determine the application, looking for the ",xls" extension in it.It's not a complete solution but it is getting us by…
