  2. Support Outlook add-ins in group boxes

    Currently, group boxes don't support Outlook add-ins. It would be really useful if they would support it.

    I was following this guide to create a group box and reproduce this behavior
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/create-a-group-in-outlook-04d0c9cf-6864-423c-a380-4fa858f27102?ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us#ID0EACAAA=Web

  3. Allow displayMessageForm to open itemId in same window

    Currently displayMessageForm method is opening the message pointed by itemId in a new window.

    It will be great if we could pass an option to the method Office.context.mailbox.displayMessageForm() that allows to replace the current visualized message with the new message indicated in itemId.

    The use case that I want to enable here is to programmatically navigate with add-in javascript to arbitrary messages knowing their itemIds.

  4. create planner task from email and/or link planner tasks to emails

    it would be nice to have an add in to create planner tasks from emails (similar to tasks in outlook) or link planner tasks to emails. Maybe even add the option to perform automated actions when the task is finished (e.g. move email to archive)

  5. Change Importance property in Outlook javascript add-in

    According to the specification https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4021#page-32 we should use a header in this case, but apparently Internet Headers do not allow to change this specific header.

  6. Extend CustomTab in office add-ins with multiple add-ins

    Hi Team,

    I am facing issue to extend existing Customtab in outlook with Office Add-ins (not with VSTO, its with manifest.xml)

    Steps:
    I have created a customtab called "My Add-Ins" in outlook, this was created with first add-in called "A" and its working fine.

    Now I have another outlook add-in called "B", I wants to add "B" add-in to exist/already created customtab "My Add-ins".
    How can I do that? Do I needs to use Office Tab or Custom Tab in manifest.xml ?

    Can you please help me here, thanks in advance 👍

  8. Office.context.officeTheme to return dark/light theme in Outlook web app

    In desktop Outlook app you can set dark/light theme or follow system theme and you can read that value from Office.context.officeTheme so add-in color scheme would match the app.
    You can set dark theme in Outlook web app but the issue is that Office.context.officeTheme returns undefined.

  10. Allow administrators to pin Office Add-ins

    With the preview release of "the new Outlook" on OWA, Office Add-ins are now buried in the drop down context menu in an email. Additionally, it appears they do not follow the same behavior of Outlook on the desktop, where Office Add-ins will show in the larger ribbon if used more frequently.

    According to this article, Office Add-ins can be pinned if they are used frequently:

    If you were using add-ins in the classic Outlook on the web experience, they will show up pinned next to mail actions or in the drop-down menu once you open an email in the…

  11. Add Office.EventType.ItemChanging event for Outlook

    Adding Office.EventType.ItemChanging event will greatly help add-in developers to write robust code to handle changing mail items.

    With a ItemChanging event that fires before Office.context.mailbox.item changes to the new context, we can write cleaner transition state logic, avoiding operations meant for previous item from bleeding into the next item.

  12. encrypt

    I believe that you should support smime encryption and not only signing in office js apps. This is an important feature since many companies depend on S/Mimein their product. Currently, as per your documentation, the add-in is not activated in case of encrypted emails.

    Regards

    There should be option to disable or hide Addin icon and title in taskpane/sidepane header?

    Or there should be an option to customize header of sidepane/taskpane like setting background image or custom font in header?

  14. Duplicate online view to app view

    I really love the web look of outlook. It is super easy to navigate, I can find all the various functions that I have been struggling to find in the updated desktop app. I would love if they could duplicate the look.

  15. E-mail Address

    Currently e-mail distribution is accepting Duplicate e-mail ID's.

    My Suggestion:
    If Duplicate ID's are in the distribution. Mail should recognize it, and inform user to remove and indicate the duplicate id's in Red Colour, for easy detection and removal.

  16. Be able to create tasks using the JavaScript API

    I would love to be able to create tasks from my Outlook web add in using Office.js based on information retrieved from our servers.
    Being able to launch a form for the users, something like Office.context.mailbox.displayNewTaskForm, like how you can use displayNewMessageForm, or displayNewAppointmentForm would be useful.

  17. Looking for option in manifest XML to add Add-On(Search related which are not specific to mail) in command bar.

    Recently, we were giving a functioning of search-related to a web module on Outlook through Add-On which was not specific to any mail. While adding its button, we found that there is no way to place the button in the command bar.

    Kindly plan it, so that any open module which are not specific to any mail, can also be intergrated.

  18. Trying to save a blob file in Outlook for macOS using javascript

    Ok so I have a Blob file that I'm trying to save on local disk (the Blob is created locally from an ArrayBuffer). The problem I'm facing is that Outlook for macOS does not want to open a FileSaverDialog or something similar to let the user save the file.

    My code is working perfectly in Outlook for Web (OWA) on all browsers (including Safari) and Outlook for Windows.

    const blob = new Blob([body]); //body is an ArrayBuffer created locally
    const link = document.createElement('a');
    if (link.download !== undefined) {

    const url = URL.createObjectURL(blob);
    
    link.setAttribute('href', url);
    link.setAttribute('download', fileName);
    link.style.visibility = 'hidden';
    document.body.appendChild(link);

  20. Control of Cursor in Outlook Desktop (Native Windows Client)

    In add-in we want our cursor/caret to appear in the To: field right after loading the add-in. But it goes away and never appear until we click either inside the message body or any other text field.

    I suggest that we should provide a method to place cursor/caret whereever user wants it to be placed.

    It works just fine in web version.

    Here is the reference of discussion with MSFT Outlook Addin team,
