  6. Insert metadata into the body of Word, PowerPoint, and/or Excel Online

    In the desktop version of word you have the option to add metadata into the body of the document. This is useful when you have boiler-plate information that you may want to include on any or all documents. For example you could setup different templates/content types each with metadata that you could easily edit from with in the document library without having to open each file, and those edits would update the body of the document wherever that metadata is embedded. More specifically, if you had marginal data about each document like Title, Owner, Date modified, and which you wanted…

  8. word online file unlock bug (office online server 2016-05)

    Hello.
    I'm implementing a WOPI host.
    It does not support COBALT (fsshttp, fsshttpb) so it sets "SupportsCobalt:false" for CheckFileInfo response.
    Currently, it just responds 200 OK to every lock and unlock requests.
    But while in tests, I found strange behavior of word online that seems to be a bug.
    Belows are results of three tests. I opened pptx, xlsx, docx files in edit mode and closed office online webapp right after.

    ----- pptx


    1. request lock
      {
      X-WOPI-Lock: {"F":4,"E":2,"L":"e4c2bba6790f408095b43bd8340e8826"}
      X-WOPI-Override: LOCK
      }


    2. rename lock
      {
      X-WOPI-OldLock: {"F":4,"E":2,"L":"e4c2bba6790f408095b43bd8340e8826"}
      X-WOPI-Lock: {"F":6,"E":2,"M":"e4c2bba6790f408095b43bd8340e8826","P":"2EE7D83D-84ED-48D6-8120-6C4D71FDF072","L":"e4c2bba6790f408095b43bd8340e8826"}
      X-WOPI-Override: LOCK
      }


    3. on close, request unlock
      {
      X-WOPI-Lock: {"F":6,"E":2,"M":"e4c2bba6790f408095b43bd8340e8826","P":"2EE7D83D-84ED-48D6-8120-6C4D71FDF072","L":"e4c2bba6790f408095b43bd8340e8826"}
      X-WOPI-Override: UNLOCK …

  14. Open Documents

    When a document can’t be opened, I suggest investigating the reason, and informing to the clients in order to proceed to the required action.
    Thanks a lot for the opportunity,
    Cordially yours,
    Julian

  16. Save PDF on iPad from Outlook Web Access (OWA) app

    I can no longer save pdf files on my iPad, either in "notes" or "ibooks". I can only "view" the document in Word Online or "save to OneDrive".

  17. Navigational Breadcrumbs.

    onedrive is extremely difficult to navigate and one of the biggest problems is a lack of breadcrumbs at the top of each file/stored content. Once you open a piece of content it may appear in another tab, which is fine, but there are no breadcrumbs that tell you where it is located or reveal how it is nested in the file structure. It's a mess.

  18. Hello, on the "One Share" program - there is a disruptive aspect to the editing feature. It keeps asking to "refresh the page" when editing

    The editing features, and the Microsoft documents editing features are some of the best features of "Microsoft documents' - so I would suggest that if the "refresh page" icon stopped repeating - this would be very helpful. Thanks -

  20. Auto-complete line on page

    Fix needed: Holding the dash key (even a few sec.s) creates a full line across the page - which is ok, except when I need it to delete. It won't go away.
