  1. 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

  2. Please actually make page breaks so we can see where it finishes and ends.

    Please the option to have spaces between pages like in the offline version of Word. This would finally make the online version of word a usable alternative to the downloaded version.

  4. 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.

  6. 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

  8. Please don't say "it's just you here now

    When you are editing a document with another person, when they leave it says it's just you here now. This makes me feel lonelier than I am already.

  12. 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?

  13. 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…

  14. Add a convert to Powerpoint button.

    In Word, I always want to change my mind and put my info into a PowerPoint, but there is always the process of copying and pasting. I think a convert to PowerPoint button would be especially great.

  15. Headers are no longer displayed in Word Online in Edit Mode

    Headers are now hidden in a tab when viewing documents in Word Online in Edit mode. This functionality does not correspond with Word for desktop and is very confusing for end users looking to download documentation from our Intranet when granted Contribute access to the site. Headers should display by default when viewing a document regardless of your access level.

  16. Tabs! Tabs! Tabs!

    PLEASE! I do not understand what is so hard about adding tabs to Word Online. There is no way to say that Word online is better than Google Docs when it is missing the most basic of functions

  17. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
