  4. Add videos, GIFS or maybe interactive videos

    Add videos, GIFS or maybe interactive videos so that when we do presentations for our class we could make it more interesting and more hands-on for everyone, because most of our work is on word and if we could also use it for fun activities then Word could also become a good activity app

  5. Enable rich formatting (bullets, bold, italic, etc.) within Comments in Word for the web

    Using formatting (bullets, bold, italic, etc) is possible within Comments in a desktop version of Word. But unfortunately not in Word for the web.

    This is the only reason that I can not review students' assignments in Word for the Web. So would be great if this could be added!

  12. Fix the "Your session has expired. Update the page to continue" error

    Hi,
    I have travelled from Sweden to Thailand and can no longer create and use Word Online. I just get the error: Your session has expired. Update the page to continue.

    It doesn't help to update. The error still remains.

    Thanks!

  13. By actually listening to our suggestions

    In 2014, there were already hundreds of people requesting the pages to be splitted just like the Word app. Nothing has changed.
    It looks like you guys really don't care about customer's happiness and loyalty.

    Gonna stick with Drive as long as you guys won't listen to us.

    Same goes with : having dark mode, having the same tabs/options as Word Offline, allowing us to move pictures everywhere on a page, adding a ruler, allowing us to custom fonts, allowing us to make columns, allowing us to insert citations, etc.

    The list is way longer.

  14. Split Word Online in multiple pages (like Microsoft Offline)

    Word Online: one infinite page, pages splitted by a small line, makes it hard to structure your text, have a good document layout, write headnotes and foodnotes, etc.

    Word offline: pages clearly separated by a grey space. Super convenient to edit the document and make a professionnal layout to hand-in (because you know exactly where your text, pictures and graphs are on the page)

  15. use templates from organization asset libraries in Word and Excel online

    SharePoint Organization Asset Libraries are a great way to store and use Office templates in Microsoft 365. Sadly they can only be used in PowerPoint Online for some reason. I would like to use them in primarily word online for our E1 and A1 licensed users for creating documents based on corporate templates. We have alot of them, around 60% of our staff are using shared computers or phones and only need to do light editing and document creation, primarily in Word. So why is it possible to use templates from Sharepoint asset libraries in PowerPoint Online and not Word…

  17. Adding More Content Controls for the "Populate a Microsoft Word template" Connector

    Add more content control for the Populate a Microsoft Word template connector that is utilized in power automate.

    Rich Text Content Control
    Building Block Gallery Content Control
    Date Picker Content Control
    Check Box Content Control
    Legacy form controls

    These are the current limitations, would be nice if they expanded upon them.

  18. Increasing limit for uploaded transcribing in Word Online

    Can there be an admin option added somewhere to be able to increase the five hour limit per month for uploaded recordings and uploaded recording size from 200mb?

    Even if this a new add-in that is charged for, the option needs to be available.

  19. putting the user’s identity into the Word program

    putting the user’s identity into the Word program, so that files are saved and the ability to share with friends, so it becomes the best program to save files and share with friends. It can also be opened anywhere from the computer and phone, in the event of a malfunction or defect in the computer, our files can be returned by opening an identity The user is from another computer. Another idea is to place brackets () for the margins and the footnote within the settings, because magazines and books require this when they are placed it takes time.
