  1. Make signature in outlook available through office js

    We want to set a different signature in the mail body from the outlook add-in. Right now altering the whole html of the mail body makes this quite impossible, especially because it is different on all different platforms. (win, mac, online different browsers)

    • Add ContextMenu Extension Point to modern Outlook Add-ins

      It would be useful to allow Outlook Add-ins to have context menu extension points to allow for more granular action controls (e.g. Right-clicking THIS specific email allows me to act on it with THIS add-in)

      It seems that the context menu isn't off limit to all Office programs, such as Word or Excel, but there is not any support for Outlook.

      • Allow office.js Outlook add-ins to open a new compose email form

        Our use case is to display email addresses for contacts in a user's CRM (other colleagues of the sender, for example), and those addresses be hyperlinks to open a new email in the active Outlook with the "TO:" field pre-populated with that address.

        • Make signed emails available for Outlook Plugins

          If you access a message in the Outlook inbox, that is digitally signed, your Outlook plugins do not have any access to the message. As a growing number of businesses works with signed messages, this becomes a problem for recipients. Outlook plugins allow to associate messages to a lead, case or opportunity in CRM systems. Currently, it is not possible to process these emails via Outlook plugins.

          I understand, that these messages shouldn't be manipulated by plugins to guarantee the integrity of the electronic signature. But it should be possible to get read-only access to these messages.

          • Make UID available in Office object in Office js

            We need UID to be available in the office object. As of now we are making EWS request in order to get UID. Also, outlook app in mobile uses only REST APi which doesn't provide UID in the response. Please, let us know when can we expect UID to be available in office object.

                • Support for outlook task add-in

                  We would like to have web add-in support for tasks similar to email and appointments/meetings. We understand that this support is not there yet but I would help us a lot if task add-ins are supported by Office 365.

                  Thanks,
                  Pankaj

                          Now we can't get attachments on OnSend event of Outlook JavaScript add-ins.
                          Because I'd like to check the content of attachments before the message will be sent, it would be great if we could get attachment on OnSend event.

                          • Allow add-in to block clicking certain links in the message

                            For some security-related add-ins, it is critical for the add-in to be able to detect when a user has clicked on a link in the body of a message. The add-in could then examine the URL to decide whether to let the action proceed or if it seems dangerous, the add-in could block the click and show an error message.

                            • Launch an Outlook Add-in from Navigation Bar (not limited to the context of a specific message)

                              I would like to be able to launch a plugin from the Navigation pane. It shouldn't care about any selected message, but it would be great if this functionality also provided a way to include sub-tree items in the Navigation tree (sub-folders).

                              My understanding is these are available in module extensions, however these do not work on anything except the Windows client and are not available to used in the Store.

                              My use-case involves replacing the standard Folder View in Outlook with a custom one (my emails showing in a custom calendar view, specifically).

                                • The search function for subfolders is required

                                  Hi , I am using Oulook 2013 and have 100+ subfolders, each with different names.
                                  Now, when i want to locate a particular subfolder, I need to scroll through each one of them to find the subfolder i want.
                                  So, if there was a search function, I could easily locate my subfolder & this would make my life easier, instead of scrolling throught all the subfolders to find the right one i need.
                                  Please help and advise.!

                                  • Dont allow COM/VSTO outlook plugins to disable add-ins

                                    As a user and developer of outlook 2016 add-ins I have currently run into an issue for which there is no resolution.

                                    COM/VSTO addins appear to have the ability to disable add-ins developed using the new add-in architecture.

                                    See issue reported here to the developers of the 'FindTime' add-in.

                                    A customer of ours recently reported this issue with the brand new plugin we just developed, where our add-in was 'greyed' out in the 'Compose' view. The root cause was because the user had the 'Salesforce for Outlook' COM plugin installed which was disabling all other add-ins.

                                    It is of…

                                      • Support iOS compose in Add-Ins

                                        Currently (05/2017) Outlook for iOS does not support Compose Add-Ins.

                                        Please support iOS and give us some idea of when this support will be available.

                                        • Allow AutoRun of Outlook Addins

                                          Just like the regular MS Office addins, we would like to create an addin that runs automatically when a mail is selected. There are various use cases for this.

                                          For example, we built an addin that scans email messages when selected and analyzes is and displays messages to the user based on the ,message. This addin is used in the context of phishing mails.

                                          This addin is currently not possible with the current Outlook 365 development model as we want to be proactive and not wait for our users to click on an icon before a mail is processed. In…
