  1. Allow time travel in the Microsoft graph

    The Office graph contains an enormous amount of useful metadata (who is connected to who, which documents are beind read and so on).

    But it's information is transient. We can only access the current state.

    There are a wealth of information management, analytics, user adoption and reporting applications that would be enabled if we could "time travel" the office graph i.e. For any given query, know what the graph response is today and know what the graph response would have been at any given point in the past or for a specified time interval - essentially allowing us to add…

  2. 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.

  4. Add 'private' property to calendar events.

    The calendar events, fetched via the Office365 Rest Api, does not seem to have any property for the 'private' option.

  5. provide a one drive for business sync client api

    The primary use would be to allow enterprises to configure users one drive for business to sync automatically. Also being able to push down their teams document library would be useful too.
    I was thinking about you could support this across multiple platforms and maybe you drive it from the server side and have the client look up which libraries to sync based off a list in their mysite.

  7. Provide Active Directory Web Services support for User Profile Service

    In Federated Identity scenarios that require connecting to multiple Active Directory repositories using ADFS, there is no current way to use the User Profile service without connecting directly to the underlying LDAP/AD store. Instead, the User Profile service should support querying for user account information over Active Directory Web Services (ADWS) to better support Federated Identity in an organization using SharePoint and Claims-picking.

  10. Make the functionality of the Office Applications (mainly Word and Excel) available "as a service" for Store/Mobile Apps.

    Excerpt from Yammer conversation:

    Hi groupmembers!

    We're developing a serious Healthcare App for Windows (8) Store. Aiming on mobile.

    What we have seen in demo's is a lot of Mail, Contacts and SharePoint. What we are looking for is a way to tap the power of Word and Excel for our Store App.

    Please come up with a good suggestion!

    What I mean is Word/Excel API's that works for Store/Mobile App development. No more, but certainly no less than that :-)

    Jeremy Thake (Microsoft)

    What do you mean by "Word API". When you say "Word API" do you mean Word…

  11. Office 365 SDK Docs - Add Details on How To Authenticate

    This guidance (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/office365/howto/common-calendar-tasks-client-library#GetAuthToken) is not as complete as it should be. You likely want to add add additional NuGet packages to make this work. Suggest adding the recommended way to authenticate, such as OWIN / ADAL, to help people get started faster.

    Hello,

  12. Social Network of project and Office-document sharing

    Would be really useful for all students studying in international fields of their studies to be able to share their projects and presentations and be able to access or view other peoples' work. This would be linked with your Microsoft account and it would be nice to have a rating system for shared projects.

    Think about how much more effort students around the world would put on their projects when they are trying to achieve publicity and good grades online with their school projects. Now that we have Office for iPhone and iPad also the sharing of your documents straight…

    Thank you for your suggestion. This is a compelling idea and we will think through the potential of building this out and provide an update here.

  13. Health status API Dashboard

    I would like to have API access to all Service health of each of our customers O365 servers. I know you can view individual service health but it would be good to build a dashboard that you can add all your customers on Office 365 and display the current health for Exchange, Lync , Share point etc. If there was an issue you can have a real-time dashboard and provide reactive support to your customer and not have to wait for them to call with an issue.

    I would love to display a dashboard like this in our office for…

  14. Expose the Capability Name, ServiceUri and ServiceResourceIds in the DiscoveryContext class

    The Office 365 API exposes the "/services" endpoint, which returns a collection of service Uri endpoints. However, the DiscoveryContext class does not expose the collection, rather it looks up a specific endpoint based on a capability name that is passed into the method (ServiceResourceId or Capability name).

    I would like a method that returns the collection of CapabilityDiscoveryResults. Alternatively, add an Enum to the library to aid in the selection of Capability/ServiceResourceId.

  16. File thumbnails/preview API

    The WOPI file previews are available in OneDrive for Business if you have the rtFa and FedAuth cookies.

    You can also download the files using the _api/files REST API, through OAuth without having the session cookies.

    I would like to use the same OAuth authentication to request previews of the files (action=imagepreview) when I am listing them through the REST API.

  17. Extend Office 365 Roadmap to Address Private Cloud Products

    Whether or not Office 365 makes sense in a particular environment isn’t a given and in a lot of real-world cases, the subject matter of intense planning & debate. Unfortunately, we’re only afforded this easily understood roadmap for one half of the question that many customers have to ponder – Which path will they follow?

    For many customers considering an on-premises / private cloud solution, it can be exceedingly difficult to fully understand where the functional differences are today, let alone where they’ll be tomorrow.

    Having new or planned on-premises/private cloud features depicted in a similar roadmap would be an…

    Request grouped under investigation OFFICE 365 API ENHANCEMENTS. Investigation currently in progress with expected internal report-out date of 8/1. Public updates to follow soon after the internal review, exact date tbd.

  19. Add support for pure server side apps (bots)

    i'm looking at the new o365 API for creating an email bot that can send reminders to people. This means that the user for the app is not a real person but an app authenticating via code. As far as i understand that is not supported right now, but it would be very nice :)

    If there are work arounds or clever ways of doing this already, i'd be interested in that as well

  20. In O365 APIs, need more data in Events property.

    In O365 APIs, provide a property in "Events" (https://outlook.office365.com/ews/odata/Me/Calendar/Events) to determine whether a meeting is accepted/declined or is still awating action from user.
