Spend less time tracking features and more time writing code!
What it does
A simple app that uses the SPO REST API to pull requested features from a SharePoint Online list into an Outlook add-in so that teams can communicate and track upcoming features to their projects.
How I built it
Pure client side HTML/CSS/JS in Visual Studio code, with a SharePoint Online backend list.
Challenges I ran into
Understanding the OAuth2 implicit flow to get an access token for the REST call from a provider hosted app.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
That I was able to bolt on Office UI Fabric, so that the app looks and feels like a part of Outlook.
What I learned
How awesome client side development is in VS Code.
What's next for Outlook Feature Request Add-in
Writing a backend web application using Azure Tables for data storage to manage the initial feature request process instead of hosting in a SharePoint Online list.
