Please support the ability to have event-activated adding in read mode in Outlook via OfficeJS.

Having to require the user to always click a button is not ideal in a lot of situations.

Same here for in writing mode. Please support the ability to automatically open an add-in as soon as a user starts composing a new message.

 

For privacy concerns, it could be a "pinnable" system, so that the user can choose which add-in he prefers to pin.

We would also like this, both for incoming and composed messages. We would like changes to the subject line and the body message to trigger an event so that our Add-in can respond to those changes.

 

To provide some context, our add-in helps users to file messages into document management systems, SharePoint ,etc. We anticipate where the message should be filed based on its: content, subject line, recipients and sender. So changes to the subject line or the body of the message should impact our suggestions on where to file it.
