  1. Fix a bug in Grooveex.Dll during unloading of this dll in applications

    With Office2016 a component was installed on the system that will be loaded by the file open dialog of applications (maybe a shell extension). If the application is shut down and if grooveex.dll is unloaded during shut down, the process will be killed at once without any exception or error message and further dll's are not unloaded.
    A developer may recognize this bug because memory leaks of the process are not reported at the end. Productive code in dllmain functions is not executed too and this may result in wrong behavior of all applications on a Windows system with Grooveex.dll…

      • Can we do the parallel calls in Office.js ? We are able to do the sequential calls with setDataSync ?

        Currently we are working with office.js

        We are facing performance issue with setDataAsync

        Becuse we are calling multiple ajax calls from q promise......

        But as per present execution its not performing the parallel calls,Its performs the sequntial calls, we should wait for previous request to be completed, then only we are able to perform the 2nd request

        so, is there any chnace to do the parallel calls in write the data in excel(setDataAsync).

        Can you please help me on this?

          • Provide a mechanism for deploying an add-in to a group of users and specify property bag of settings to apply to the group

            We already have a way of deploying add-ins to group of users within a tenant, but it would streamline a lot of scenarios if during that deployment for an add-in to a group that a "property bag" of settings/configuration could also be specified. This would then be available via the Office.js API.

            Here's one very realistic use case scenario:

            Commercial third party add-ins would require some form of subscription/licensing engine, consider a subscription that an organization would buy simplifies down to a subscription id. The question is really then around how do we bind users to this subscription id?

            Here's…

            • Connect to http://localhost (no SSL)

              I'd like to be able to connect to http://localhost:60002 (or some localhost port, no SSL) in order to fetch information served locally instead of retrieve it from the Internet.

              My understanding is that only https URLs can be fetched from the Add-ins so this is not possible.

              Could a manifesto property allow this, for example?

              Thanks very much!

              • Resolve UK date format issue - SharePoint, etc

                We have correctly set our localisation to UK English with GMT time zone, but we continue to see the date being presented in the form MM/DD/YYYY instead of DD/MM/YYYY. This is a problem as the US date format is being replicated to system generated documents, such as invoices.

                  • get rid of statement based code

                    replace all statement based code xml, xaml, caml you cannot debug it just use JavaScript. Its someone's wet dream

                    If you can loop and if you can program anything statement based approach to much time wasted getting it correct poorly supported

                    Its just shite.

                        • Allow sites with third party apps to be saved as template (O365)

                          I'm working on created a site template with a single third party app. This app has blocked my ability to save the site as a template, but is required to be deployed to the new site, and also is the primary reason for creating the template in the first place.

                          I dream of a day when you can create a template from this site, and create sites from it, so long as they are created within the same site collection. (where the app was enabled already).

                          • Allow Office Add-in Manifest to be published to Cloud Storage Services like Box

                            We are a large enterprise having many locations around the globe, using cloud storage solution (Box) for file shares..

                            We'd like to be able use a shared folder in that cloud storage as an app catalog for manifest files, just like a network shared folder, for Office Add-Ins we are developing and using in our enterprise.

                            We are also in Office 365 but deploying Sharepoint just for manifest files catalog is a burden on our IT department.

                            We'd like to see more open-minded approach from Microsoft in this matter and let cloud storage providers be part of this process.

                            Thank…
