  1. Option to remove timestamps from comments & track changes but not remove author name

    Editors the world over are looking for a way to remove all timestamps from comments & track changes but not remove the comment & track changes author name. The timestamps are read-only, so cannot be changed with a macro, but can only be changed by going into the Word .zip file and running a Find & Replace. This could be a property that could be locked with a password at the document creator's discretion.

  2. Comment footnotes

    I should be able to put a comment on a footnote. If I need someone to look over a footnote, I have to either put a comment in the body text or highlight the section of the footnote manually.

  5. Add APA 7th Edition

    With the release of the 7th Edition of the APA Publication manual, this style needs to be reflected in Word for use in references, citations, and the reference list as well as a document template.

  6. Upgrade of Mail Merge

    Mail merge is in desperate need of an upgrade. I would ideally like to see the following features added in the near future.


    1. Multiple recipients support including CC and BCC.

    2. Subject line can contain merge fields

    3. Support for office files or PDFs to be merged and sent to the recipient(s) as attachments.

    4. Further integration with OneDrive and SharePoint.

    5. If there are multiple email in Outlook, the ability to choose when merging which email address the emails are sent from.

  8. Beeline Reader

    Please offer the Beeline Reader format on MS Word. Having this available on Word would be a great help for students and professionals who have to read long documents on a daily basis. Beeline also really helps people with disabilities like dyslexia that make reading very difficult.

    If the United Nations and Stanford have seen fit to honor Beeline, perhaps it's time for MS to make this available in Word? In the meantime, I'll just keep uploading my Word docs to Google Docs, where I can read them in BeeLine format...wish I could do it in Word though!

  10. Add Language Papiamento

    I am currently in a position in which I have O365 in my portfolio to sell here on the island of Aruba. The local language is Papiamento and is used in many news articles. Next to that it is a language given at certain school of which the number will increase in the coming years. That means more individuals will be using Word processing on a daily basis to create documents in Papiamento.

    Currently I cannot sell O365 to many clients because the language is taken out of the language package. It is still available in Word 2010 and hence…

  13. Re speech recognition dictation in Word: No way to adjust time dictation is available. Shuts off after only 15 seconds.

    Preference needed to adjust time dictation is available before shutting off. Also, keyboard keystroke combination or single key needed to reactivate dictation mode in Word and elsewhere.

  14. Add 'Allow the following words to start with lowercase letters at the beginning of a sentence' in Office applications

    Many 'cool' brands these days use names that don't use capital letters at the beginning of the word. Please add an option to 'Allow the following words to start with lowercase letters at the beginning of a sentence' in Office applications so that they don't have to be repeatedly corrected over, and over, and over again.

  15. Stop warning whenever any Building Block is used

    Since Version 1908 whenever a building block is used or the Building Block Organizer is accessed this loads Building Blocks.dotx and changes the saved state to false. This triggers a warning message when leaving Word asking whether the user wants to save changes to Building Blocks.dotx, even when there have been no changes.

    See this thread in the Answers forum.

  17. Add a calculater in Microsoft word, Since the equation feature already exist

    I'm an Engineer, my major requires a lot of reports and calculations. I think it will save time if while writing my equation in the report with actual numbers it will be automatically calculated instead of calculating it again either manually or with excel. I think the idea is simple but will have a great response and save time for students and other users.

  18. Improve performance for large documents

    I have a Word document with lots of reference material in it, admittedly it is quite large, and if I were starting this document again, I would not use Word. However, it used to work absolutely fine until the business updated to Office 365. It now takes Word about 5 minutes to open the document, during which time the window alternates between blank, black, and showing the initial page of the document.

    The document lives on my local disk, in a folder which is managed by OneDrive. The file size is 2.8 MB, and it is currently 353 pages long.

  19. Multiple TAB/Sheet option in MS Word

    Problem Statement:

    User need to create new files for new activities. Also user can not link one word data from different word files.

    Solution:

    We should have an option of creating multiple Tab/Sheet in one word file like MS Excel.

    There are multiple benefits of it like:


    1. We can link one sheet to another

    2. We can create the different word file just by adding the new tabs in same file

    3. We don't have to open multiple files for different task or activities

  20. Spell Check no longer limits itself to selected (highlighted) text

    A recent update changed Spell Check to something almost unrecognizable. Specifically, the ability to spell check selected parts of the document were lost. I don't know if I am missing something or not, but the practice of installing updates unexpectedly and without permission should stop.
