  2. TURN OFF THE PROFANITY FILTER ON THE MICROSOFT WORD VOICE DICTATION FEATURE

    I would like the option, as a free thinking adult, to turn off the profanity filter in Microsoft Word Voice dictation feature. I work in a treatment program where patients need to be able to express themselves. Also, some of the filters are silly, for instance the following sentence was changed from:

    "The painting of a naked women was done in the ......."

    to:

    "The painting of a was done in the ......."

    Who decides what is profanity?
    Please allow the user to turn this feature off. Do not decide for me what is profane.

  4. Viewer Mode as User GPO not only Computer GPO

    Hello MS Team,

    you offer this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/overview-viewer-mode

    Office 365 is a "User" Based License, not a Client License. So, in an Environment, where you have, for example 100 Clients and 120 employees, while 80 have a E3 license, you want to install Office 365 to any of this 100 Clients and add any User to a AD Group, that do NOT have a valid Office License, add the "Office Viewer GPO" to this AD Group, so if that User will logon to a client, Office 365 will be in Viewer Mode for THIS User. When a User with a valid…

  5. Display "Feature Flags" to users

    This blog:
    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/microsoft-teams-release-processes-why-do-i-not-see-a-feature-but/bc-p/2113533#M7903

    explained why Office app users do not always see the same "new" feature flags".

    See my comment on the blog. Short form, this hidden manipulation of features is causing massive amounts of wasted time world wide because people sitting side by side are not seeing the same "new" features.

    Please expose these flags in the File menu > Account command > About section in addition to Version and Build numbers.
    .
    In IT support we NEED to see this information!
    .
    This change needs to be implemented in all applications that user "feature flags" to control rollouts. …

  6. update the APA to version 7 all university's are using this now.

    All University's are using the 7th edition of the APA style for writing. It would help if you added this to Word for Windows.

  8. Please update MS Word Citations & Bibliography to support APA 7th Edition

    The tools found in the Citations & Bibliography panel are used by students in colleges and universities extensively. Students have little time to learn and build code to address this issue. Please upgrade or provide a patch to update MS Word to support APA Seventh Edition. Please!

  9. voice

    maybe you could have something that records your voice and it types it out for you and if they hear it wrong you could allow people to edit it because I find typing constantly when writing something can give you sour arms!

  12. Commenting in Word as a chat and meeting experience

    Please consider if possible to improve the Word collaboration - commenting experience when there is a huge number of authors and document reviewers. In such cases, when there is a huge number of comments appearing on the right side, it becomes almost unreadable and not possible to filter and find the comments by the authors and content.

    Imagine these Personas and this Scenario:

    Authors: 10 people creating/editing/authoring the Word document.

    Reviewers: 50 people doing a review of the document and placing comments on whatever word/sentence in the document.

    Then, at the same time, Authors can start answering the comments from…

  14. Adding a feature with "Comments" to assign its severity (for easy auditing, measuring a KPI and priority actioning purposes)

    This is with regard to the “Comments” feature which is greatly used for communicating feedback or suggestion on a selected content of a document. People in my organisation are coming up with various tools to manually record the severity of comments made in a document by a reviewer. The level of errors and severity of comments form a KPI for originators of the documents, but there lies an ambiguity (as well as subjectivity) in classifying the review comments under various degrees like minor, medium, moderate and major. Ideally the reviewer should be given a choice at the time of posting…

  18. Increase the 259 path length limit when saving files to SharePoint online

    A word document (and other office apps) opened from a SharePoint library can not be saved if the URL exceeds 259 characters. It does not make sense to impose the same limit as saving files to a hard drive when saving files to a URL as URL's are not file paths on physical storage / hard drives.

    Please fix this.

  20. Text Predictor

    Like in Gmail, word needs an Text Predictor. Something with IA that learn about what we write and made suggestions. Pressing an hotkey, that word will be written with space ahead to continue typing.
