Office 365 APIs

This site contains the documentation for Office 365 REST APIs exposed on the OneNote and Outlook endpoints. The documentation is no longer actively updated. It is here for your reference, in case you have already included any of the API in your project.

Office 365 services, such as OneNote, Outlook, Excel, OneDrive, Microsoft Teams, Planner, and SharePoint, are now exposed in Microsoft Graph. Microsoft Graph is a unified API endpoint for accessing data across Microsoft 365, which includes Office 365, Enterprise Mobility, and Security and Windows services. It provides a simplified developer experience, with one endpoint and a single authentication token that gives your app access to data across all these services.

Our recommendation:

  • If you are starting a new app, please use Microsoft Graph.
  • If you are maintaining an existing project, use this documentation set for reference. In addition, plan your move to the latest APIs in Microsoft Graph to take advantage of all the new functionality and innovation there.
  • If you are adding new functionality to an existing project, integrate that new functionality by using Microsoft Graph.

With Microsoft Graph, you can access Office 365 data and more, from solutions across mobile, web, and desktop platforms. So whether you're building web applications by using .NET, PHP, Java, Python, or Ruby on Rails, or creating apps for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), iOS, Android, or on another device platform, it's your choice.

  • Hi,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    What do you mean by “Sending file from Excel via Outlook (Alt F, D)”?

    There is no build-in function (Alt F, D) both in Outlook UI and Excel UI.

    Could you please tell us more information or figures about how do you do that?

  • Actually, George Hua, there IS a keyboard shortcut in Excel that opens the Save and Send dialog. 

    The keyboard shortcut Alt - F - D exists in all Excel versions I have in front of me:

    2003: Opens the File Menu > Send To

    2007: Opens the Send menu in the Office button

    2010: Opens Backstage > Save & Send

    2013: The shortcut Alt-F opens Backstage, but the D now is assigned to "Accounts". In order to get the Save & Send dialog, the shortcut needs to be Alt - F (for File)- H (for sHare) - E (for Email)

    So, the question remains: Why does that command, triggered by the keyboard shortcut (except in Excel 2013) not create a message in the "Sent" folder in Outlook:

    Well, the real answer is: Excel just uses the email protocol and sends the email message with the attached file without involving Outlook. It never really creates an email message "within Outlook" that can be seen in the "Sent" folder. Instead, it communicates directly with the Exchange system, which does not leave a trace in your Outlook's "Sent" folder.

    If you want to have a copy of "Save and Send" files from Excel, you will need to enter your own email address into the "To" or "CC" or "BCC" field. This way, the message will end up in your inbox as a receive message. But you will never see it in your "Sent" folder, since Outlook is not aware that this message was sent.

    It's a bit confusing, but I hope you get the drift.


    cheers, teylyn
