    Office Extensibility Team,

    Can you please provide any kind of idea of when or whether this might be implemented (as it's been in the backlog for nearly 2 years)?
    Is this something you might be able to move up in the backlog as a higher priority so likely to be addressed?

    Support for executing commands / automating UI would be extremely helpful in helping to bridge the gap between what is possible with JavaScript / Office.js vs. VBA / Automation APIs, and provide a lot of functionality even with just one new method like:

    Application.executeUICommand(command: string | UICommand)

    Ideally you could provide an enum like UICommand with string values auto-generated from list of known/most common commands, like from either:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/openspecs/office_standards/ms-customui/bb5bb594-ec8c-45f6-8424-f98e8308b25a
    https://docs.microsoft.com/eu-es/office/vba/office-mac/idmsoexcelmac
    However, simply executeUICommand(commandName: string) without any enum (for first version, if that simplifies and therefore helps to get this implemented sooner), and even if just for Excel at first, would be of immense value to those looking to move from VBA to JavaScript for Office Add-in development and automation.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    It would be really useful if could specify bottom of top docking for Task Panes as well.
