  1. Add columns feature to Word Online & OneDrive!

    The inability to create multi-column docs significantly decreases the functionality of the program. Competitors like Google Docs allow it, drawing users away from the Microsoft platform.

  2. Enable external emails for @mentions

    If your company does not use Outlook emails with Office 365, @mention-style notifications are not an option. Without this, it's extremely hard to productively collaborate around a doc. All the other software we use associates emails with user profiles to make this a possibility.

  3. PDF quality should be equal to Word "Save as PDF" - do not rasterize vector graphics

    Currently PDF created by "Download as PDF" are of inferior quality than those generated by the desktop app.

    Most notably, vector artwork such as SVG logos, even simples ones with flat colors, are preserved in Word fpr Desktop, resulting in nicer looking and smaller PDFs.

    Word online rasterizes all vector art and makes them low-res, blocky images, which consume more space. This makes for visually unpleasant, unfaithful documents, which take up more space.

    PDF generation on Word online should preserve vector images in the output for better visual fidelity and smaller documents.

  5. Product improvement suggestion - Camera pictures!

    Hello,

    I have a suggestion on how to improve Microsoft Word features. Nowadays computers are getting easier to carry and I can work from anywhere. I work on real estate projects and I have to take a lot of pictures and put them in the word tables. It takes a lot of time, especially if you need to insert each picture in the table by browsing maps and searching for the right one you have taken. My laptop has a camera. And I think you can make this task easier if there would be a feature to take pictures directly…

  6. Maybe add a timer to let you know when to take a break...

    We all know that eye strain can be caused by staring at a computer for to long. Maybe add an automatic timer that will tell you when to take a break/ and how long the break should be to both improve productivity, and prevent eye strain. Thank you and I hope this gets added.

  14. Improve auto-correct

    Please stop auto-correct from incorrectly changing "(i.e., …)" to "(I.e., …)" - it's incorrect. That is, you currently have an auto-correct feature that takes correct syntax and makes it incorrect. An auto-incorrect feature is probably one that most people don't want, wouldn't you think?

  15. Can we have the feature to insert a picture from OneDrive for Business to Word online just like

    In consumer Word online you can add images from OneDrive. In Sway for commercial organisations you can upload images from OneDrive for Business. Why not in Word Online?
