  5. Support .dotx templates in Office 365/Word Online

    Opening a .dotx file in Word Online by default should create a new document based on that template.

    A separate option should be provided to edit the template online.

  8. Google Drive Integration

    My company uses Google Drive.
    It would be great if Word Online supports Google Drive to open and save documents. I think It would be more helpful if there would be a Google Drive app to open documents with Word Online.

  9. Add full spell check from desktop word

    The spell check in word online is very lacking seeing as it cannot do grammar and only gives one option for correcting. I think it would be a quick fix and make a lot of us happy.

  10. Assign Colors To Editors

    I would like it if we could pick personal editing colors rather than be randomly assigned to colors. Also, a wider variety of colors would be helpful.

  13. Shared Document

    Enable edit notification for document sharing. Users will receive a notification when the shared document has had revisions made upon the user's exit. This will allow shared work to be more efficient.

  16. Ability to insert formula in Word Online

    Please include mathematical formula insertion tool that is found in MS Word 2007, 2010 & 2013. It will be of great help to students of many ages and topics to complete their homeworks and researches.

    This feature is found in Google Docs. I don't see why it can't be included in MS Word Online.

  17. Spell Check - Persist spell check language for a document

    When writing a word document, I'd like the spell check language to stay the same for the entire document. Currently, if I change a language and start typing, the language invariably jumps back to the default spell check language.

  18. track changes

    When a change is accepted, track changes automatically jumps to the next tracked change. However, as an editor, I need to see the final text and all spacing and punctuation, which is not easy to see with strikethrough. So I am accepting text, then clicking Home, Undo to find it again---it's amazingly inefficient compared with desktop Word. Please at least allow the user to click "Accept and go to next change" OR just "Accept" (and stay put).
