  2. Office 365 Graph API more detailed calendar event objects

    When you use the API to get user's calendar events for a period, the event objects that are returned do not contain any event description field they only contain a body and a bodyPreview which is something that is quite unusable.

    So add the field for event description/notes/summary or what you call it.

  5. Office 365 Unified API Credentials/Call Proxy

    It should be possible through the Office.js to call the Unified API, without having to log on separately in the add-in using adal. This would drasticall simplify the application flow. It could possibly be implemented similarly to mailbox.makeEwsRequestAsync.

  7. Detail about recurring appointment outlook 365 mail api

    office.context.mailbox.item does not seems to provide much detail like pattern

  8. Please fix Excel Chart Axis Interval, since 2013 limited to 255 = not enough.

    Since Excel 2013 there has been a limit of 255 on the Chart Axis Interval value, this needs increasing again as per Excel 2010 and earlier as it is currently impossible to control sensible axis labels in large datasets - thanks.

  9. Need API to get popularity trends reports(usage details)

    We are able to view the usage details of a document with the help of "Popularity trends". But it would be great if we get those details through the API. So that we can programmatically get those details and use it for our favors.

  11. Allow background image to be changed on the About Me page

    On the About Me page of Office 365, you have the capability to change your profile image, but there is no option to change the background image, so you are stuck with whatever image Microsoft chooses for you.

  12. ifttt

    Regarding IFTTT Office 365 Mail channel, it would be extremely helpful to trigger by "New Email TO". Currently it only supports new email FROM. In the case of an email account that receives multiple inbox messages for various recipients, it would be nice to set an IFTTT recipe to do something different for a specific recipient.
    Example, New email TO:Craig->send SMS; New email TO:Lisa->forward to Gmail. Etc.

  13. Fine-grained control in the O365 Calendar IFTTT channel

    Right now, the only supported trigger for O365 calendar is "Meeting is about to start (in 15 minutes)". With more options for this trigger, a lot more scenarios would be possible. For instance, you could make a recipe for late-night across-the-world business calls: "If event is after 5:00 pm, send me a reminder / ring my home phone / flash the lights / etc." At the very least, I'd like to see "event is after or before <specific time>".

  14. Ability to export tabular data to Excel Online

    Almost every web developer has or will encounter exporting reports to excel at one point or another in their careers. There are many options for doing this, but they all require a server side SDK from a third party vendor (paid or free). Some of them use standards like Open XML others use proprietary and old code.

    I think it would be awesome to have a very easy and relative way to pass data to Excel Online, parse it and display it. Then allow the user to play with the spreadsheet online, save it to their OneDrive or download it…

  15. Office 365 API query $count (on messages) is not allowed since 23-06-2015

    thread on msdn:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/9f9f6c9b-46d8-4eef-a6c7-c64da53a848f/office-365-api-odata-query-parameter-count-on-messages-quotmethod-is-not-allowedquot-since?forum=appsforoffice

    I have WebService tool which connect to Office365 Outlook with API.
    I'm using few methods to query Mail objects:

    Get Messages
    Get Message
    and Get Mesages with $count query: https://outlook.office365.com/api/v1.0/me/messages/$count

    Everything was working ok, but since 2015-06-23 there are errors in method with $count query. When I try to do these queries directly in Internet Explorer I get "HTTP 405 - Method not allowed"

    Why it is not working now

    Other methods works correct

  16. Create a pluggable framework for external notifications

    Implement the integration of external notifications (from apps for instance) into the notification part of the Office 365 suite bar. That way, apps can become more integrated into the whole and for a user it becomes easier to navigate directly to the stuff that needs their attention.

    An easy start would be to fire off a (client side?) call to a webservice which would then return the proper notifications to be shown in the notification bar. In the future maybe provide API calls to push new notifications into the system.

  18. Office365 API: Allow to create, get and update Contact Lists, not only Folders

    We can create contacts and add to folders (not considering the bug we have there https://officespdev.uservoice.com/forums/224641-general/suggestions/8560312-office365-api-contact-is-not-added-to-specific-fo)
    but we can't create contact lists programmatically.

    Please, can you consider add this to the API?

  19. Office365 API: Contact is not added to specific folders

    I have already reported this bug in the public forum:

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/outlookdev/thread/e14f4e90-5913-4df9-9a35-51d9432a3683/

    And found other reports on the Stack Overflow:

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28238849/contacts-are-getting-created-only-in-root-folder/28239672
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28975976/creating-contact-in-folder-with-office-365-rest-api

    We can't add contacts to specific folders. We receive a success answer from the API, but the contact is always added to the root folder.
    It was already confirmed by others. Please, could you take a look and fix it?

    Thanks

  20. Allow Office Graph to find experts (user)

    I have found this:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/office365/howto/develop-office-graph

    This technology sounds very promising and I understand that it is still in preview, but before I dive in too deeply, I was wondering if I can use this API (in the future) to search for experts (users) on a certain topic.

    I have doubts that are caused by this line:

    To present the most relevant content in different contexts, the Office graph uses a two-step analysis. First, it calculates which users in the graph are most relevant to the current context. Second, it retrieves the most relevant content associated with these users.
    My Idea…
