Feedback by UserVoice

Word Online

Welcome to the Word Online feedback forum! This is the place for users to send us suggestions and ideas on how to improve.

We have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service and your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy, including the license terms. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Lock comments so they can only be edited by author of the comment

    Please, please make it so that comments can no longer be edited by another person, students are able to revise comments made by their teacher. This is not good for school or business because a screen shot could easily implicate someone for wrong-doing. The edited comment shows the original author and no indication that there was a new person editing that comment. Also the comment history is not available to view to track any of the changed made to a comment box. Please fix this so we are able to continue using collaborative documents. This is a deal breaker.

        • Dictation: Allow an option for speech-to-text

          Instead of wasting time typing, allow people to talk into the mic and their words turn into text.

            • Please restore Track Changes online!

              I was doing a lot of work on my laptop, editing a very large legal document for which my client needs to see all changes. The new update means that I can't use Track Changes online, but only on a desktop that has Word. That means I have no incentive to continue using Word Online. I feel like this is an important piece of user experience feedback for you guys (not you personally, of course!)

              It's a pity because I was getting really into Word Online and had started telling friends/colleagues about it.

              • Allow for slang or improper language to be recognized

                Word should have an option to allow slang or a way to have a word added to your dictionary as a word not recognized or slang

                • The online version doesn't line up like the PC version of Word. How about adding in rulers so we can obtain the same document lineup as we ?

                  The online version doesn't line up like on the PC version of Word. How about adding in rulers or fixing it in whatever way that would make the same formatting possible?

                  • show the header and the footer

                    When you insert a header/footer, it disappears after you click on the other part of the text. It should be so that the header/footer stays on the page when you click away.

                    • Better copy and paste functionality--when pasting between documents, any footnotes/end notes are lost

                      Exactly as the title says. It's frustrating that I can't copy and paste chunks of text with footnotes in Word online like I can in the thick client. This is in Google Chrome, if that makes a difference.

                        • 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…

                                • 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?

                                      • We need Grammarly support

                                        I think Grammarly should be supported in Office Online. I got it just to improve my Word Online document, disappointed to see it not working. I sent this message to the Grammarly forum, too, but I got no response. Please help us poor schmucks with terrible grammar who need a second pair of eyes and simply can't make do with the built-in spell checker.
