  4. Word Online needs to be as easy to use and access as "Google Docs"

    Google doesn't offer the security you do, BUT at the speed of business in the world, my company needs to rely on our security and Google Docs speed. When did Microsoft fall SO far behind? Why are you so gosh darn difficult to work with? I'd rather get it from YOU but market share will depart for the easier to use and faster product. Wake up! "Bueller? Bueller?"

  5. I would like the ability to add footnotes in Word for the iPad. If the fear is cannibalizing one product for another, I use both.

    I am unable to add footnotes to a Word document on my iPad, which reduces real world functionality by at least 60% for me. I'm an attorney, and need to be able to cite to my authorities. I use Word on my iMac, Macbook Pro and iPad...so the possibility that I will use the iPad exclusively is nill. Some days it's just more convenient for me to use the iPad, and I see no sense in limiting its functionality in this way.

  9. I think that word should be in real-time editing, without having to constantly click on "updates available"

    I think it would be easier if there were real-time editing instead of having to "update" the document. When working on a document, I don't pay attention to that button and tend to miss a comment that is left, taking me longer to reply. Also, it would be nice to be able to see what the other person working on the document is doing in real time, like Google Docs

  10. I think we should type in how much we want to zoom in.

    So you can type it and put it how you want it, not picking one that is there. because 100% it a bit to small and 150% is to big.

  11. Work online needs to allow setting of metadata in the browser

    you have to open a document in Word to set metadata. but when you click the new button it opens word in the browser and therefor does not allow you to set the metadata values.

  12. Word online should have: 'Save to a OneDrive folder' option while still open

    Add this option to the 'Save as' button: Save to One Drive folder.
    This way, one can immediately categorize a document without having to go to OneDrive to do it.

  19. Maybe it's time to think of icons for the new generation of users. At least the save icon.

    I was helping my son (11) with a homework in Word, and I said: "Hit the diskette icon to save, so that you don't lose what you've done". He gave me an awkward look and said: "Hit the what icon? What's a diskette?".
    Do I need to say more?
