  1. Insert picture from OneDrive for Business

    Currently (January 2018) OneDrive for Business is not supported as a source for inserting pictures into a document using Word Online.

    This is a basic and common requirement for document creators working with Word Online.

    Please implement and advise status. Thanks!

  4. Bring back custom page borders

    Previous versions of Word included the ability to insert borders, including single-line, double-line, and custom borders, to text documents. To spice up my resumes, for instance, I would include a border to make it stand out from the crowd. It was a useful feature and I would like it included in new versions of Word.

  5. Hidden Text feature

    We had a recent need to have the ability to use the 'hidden' text feature to a cloud document but found out that the feature was not available in the online version of '"ord". This would be a nice feature to have

  7. Calculations

    I know it is most likely too complex to pull off, but as one may be able to search in (google) something such as '23 + 47 =', (google) will solve the equation or problem for you.
    
    It would be a nice and advanced feature for it to give the red squiggle line, or a different color, and prompt the user the answer. This would help me in many of my daily things, but i am sure would help other users as well. Complex functions such as y=mx+b and things may not be calculated, but simple numbers such as one

  8. Include non-binary pronouns as a suggestion for more inclusive language

    Word Online (and all other Word versions, frankly) should suggest 'they' as a replacement for 'he/she' when referring to a non-gender specific person, to be more inclusive.

    As per the following WaPo article, the "American Dialect Society gave the official okay to “they” as a singular, gender-neutral pronoun (instead of “he” or “she”)": https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/in-2016-they-became-singular-and-everyone-learned-more-about-gender/2016/12/16/cabcd846-c3b7-11e6-9578-0054287507db_story.html

  9. Comments for footnotes

    When reviewing a document and tracking changes, we can already make and track changes within footnotes, but currently we cannot add comments to footnote text - this feature is needed. Thank you.

  10. Better copy and paste functionality--when pasting between documents, any footnotes/end notes are lost

    Exactly as the title says. It's frustrating that I can't copy and paste chunks of text with footnotes in Word online like I can in the thick client. This is in Google Chrome, if that makes a difference.

  14. multiple languages

    The system needs to support multiple languages.

    Ideally Word Online should detect what languages the user is using. When it detects a language other than the system default, it should prompt the user if they want to use the detected language.

  15. comment

    We should have an option where a person can add comments but not change the document itself. It would be similar to view access but with the ability to select text and add comments.

    An update on this feature request. The previous comments about the Word Online Viewer being able to add comments was accurate at the time of posting but has since changed to no longer let viewers add comments.

    The feature request to let people comment but not edit the document is still under review.

  16. Focus mode for Word

    Word is too feature rich and full of fancy UI.

    Please remove all the distraction and give me a mode to distraction free writing. Just me and my content.

  18. Capitalization in a word that should be capitalized.

    If you get a word like Americans, and you write americans, I think it should auto-correct it to the capitalized word. Americans.

  20. We need Grammarly support

    I think Grammarly should be supported in Office Online. I got it just to improve my Word Online document, disappointed to see it not working. I sent this message to the Grammarly forum, too, but I got no response. Please help us poor schmucks with terrible grammar who need a second pair of eyes and simply can't make do with the built-in spell checker.
