  1. show the header and the footer

    When you insert a header/footer, it disappears after you click on the other part of the text. It should be so that the header/footer stays on the page when you click away.

  2. Add ability to edit Microsoft Word forms in Word Online

    Creating a fillable form template document content type on Office 365 SharePoint does not allow you to fill the form using Word Online. Allowing this would mean the ability to automatically fill out forms using metadata columns from SharePoint.

  3. Support editing of Content Controls in Word Online

    Currently the content of Content Controls is read-only in the document. Please add the functionality for a user to edit the content of content controls in Word Online.
    In addition to that, events in Word-specific Javascript API would be needed to act on the change.

  4. Enable QuickParts in Word Online

    The ability to add quickparts or even textboxes and shapes into Word Online would simplify many form solutions for tons of users in Word Online.

    Forms have always been a struggle in SharePoint, and having quick parts in web apps would allow us to embed Word as forms for our lists.

  5. Equations: Add the ability to insert equations

    In the traditional version of Word, we are able to write equations. Can that ability be added here? It is especially useful for students that are in the fields of science, engineering, and mathematics that are working on group projects.

  6. Product improvement suggestion - Camera pictures!

    Hello,

    I have a suggestion on how to improve Microsoft Word features. Nowadays computers are getting easier to carry and I can work from anywhere. I work on real estate projects and I have to take a lot of pictures and put them in the word tables. It takes a lot of time, especially if you need to insert each picture in the table by browsing maps and searching for the right one you have taken. My laptop has a camera. And I think you can make this task easier if there would be a feature to take pictures directly…

  7. Retteprogram på nynorsk i Word

    Med så mange skoler som nå bruker 1:1 iPad sammen med O365 bør det også være retteprogram for nynorsk også i Word. Før det skjer blir ikke dette et fullgodt verktøy i norskfaget. Det handler ikke om hvor mange som har det som sitt førstespråk, men om hvor mange som har det som et skriftspråk de må forholde seg til. Det er alle elever i skolen, både ungdomsskoler og videregående.

  9. they need to get word art that shows all the stuff and fonts like they do on a normal word ducument.

    word art needs to be added to word online cause whenever i go to make my heading or title pretty it looks bad cause there is no word art like the actual colourful pretty and cool looking ones. so add them into word online and people will like it more and use it more often

  13. Edit Mode (view) in Word Online diffrent then Desktop Word

    Desktop Word and Word Online show the same Document differently when Edit mode is on (tab stops, picture not at same place and false fonts). We have a lot of Word Documents which was created in Desktop Word and will be edited in Word online. But the documentview is diffrent, tab stops are missing, picture is on wrong place, false fonts are showing. When i'm in View Mode it looks alright.

    For the Tabstops there is already a Uservoice

  14. Shareable links that only allow commenting and not editing

    An option for allowing only comments (not editing the document itself) would make collaboration much easier without having to worry about changes to the document.

  16. Headers are no longer displayed in Word Online in Edit Mode

    Headers are now hidden in a tab when viewing documents in Word Online in Edit mode. This functionality does not correspond with Word for desktop and is very confusing for end users looking to download documentation from our Intranet when granted Contribute access to the site. Headers should display by default when viewing a document regardless of your access level.

  17. Add option to choose default behaviour of document opening in Office Online

    At the moment option to open documents in edit mode by default is probably ok for most of the users with small documents, but in case that user really need just a quickly check some data in a large document that works too slow. I would like to have option to change default behavior on this. Ideally on document library level.
