  1. Office Add-ins should run in Edge, not IE11

    At the moment Word runs Add-ins in IE11

    IE11 doesnt support ES2016, and is therefore much harder to develop for than all of the other newer browsers (Safari, Chrome, Edge).

    Word should run Add-ins in Edge

  2. Support for shared mailboxes

    Office 365 shared mailboxes are very useful. Unfortunately, they do not load outlook web add-ins right now: see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/35059067/make-outlook-add-ins-working-with-office-365-shared-mailboxes/35065215
    This would be terrific to have add-ins for such mailboxes especially for all CRMs related apps

  3. Add Office Javascript API support for resources of type room in appointments/meetings

    Currently, the requiredAttendees methods setAsync and getAsync have serious issues when resources of room type are used. I will add below my review of the three methods exposed on requiredAttendees object (picture in the link):

  4. Ability to open/replace workbook with Excel JS API in a similar way Word API can with insertFileFromBase64

    We have a requirement to load a workbook from a remote source from within the add-in. User logs in, selects from a list and workbook template loads.

    With the Word JS API we can load a template remotely using an AJAX call that returns the workbook as a base64 string and then insert the response into the current workbook using the replace option. AFAIK this doesn't exist for the Excel API and we download the workbook and then instruct the user to open from the download pane.

  6. Make O365 user identity available in Word Add In

    Authenticated O365 users shall not be prompted to login again when they want to use Word Add-In. At the moment any Word Add In secured using O365 directory need to prompt users to enter their credential again despite that they have logged in to O365.
    The goal is to provide a better user experience with this single sign on.

  8. 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.
