  1. Import templates created in MS Word on Mac to MS Word for iOS

    I have a wealth of created templates on MS Word for Mac that I would like to be able to import to Word for iOS. I would be great if this were to become available. For those of us who do a lot of our work on the run and where mobility is of utmost importance, this will be a great feature.

  2. Face Recognition / Id required to access it

    For added security to the app. It is available on outlook & onedrive. So why not all the apps??

  4. Needs ability to save to iCloud Drive.

    For using MS Office on iPad, we need to be able to save docs on iCloud. I see OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, etc, but no iCloud. This is really odd.

  5. Recently deleted setting

    When you (accidentally) delete something, you can recover it with a recently deleted setting and carry on working on it. Accidentally deleting something happens to everyone; it’s so annoying!

  6. A proofreading function that corrects grammar and spelling errors

    If anyone if writing a longer piece like me, then it would be helpful to have a feature that will proofread your work for you since it’ll be a lot of work for you to read the whole thing.

  8. Default Font On IPad

    It would be very helpful if we could set a default font on the iPad’s like you can on a laptop or desktop. I use my IPad for work and school every day and it would help out a lot.

  10. Allow fonts to be changed after paper finished.

    I recently had to work on 2 different computers to write a paper. They didn’t have the same fonts listed so I had to use different fonts to write the paper. I thought I could change it later but I found out I couldn’t. Now I have a paper written in 2 completely different fonts and I am going to have to rewrite it on another computer to get it done with just 1 font. The paper is quite long and will take a lot of time to do.

  12. Formatting for Page Numbers, Footnotes, etc.

    Word for iPad provides simple page number and footnotes for documents, but does not allow full formatting flexibility of the full desktop program. Full formatting flexibility of different first page, start with __, etc. and Roman numerals, Arabic numerals, etc. for students and academic writing requirements would ensure greater usability of the app.

  14. Reference tab

    I need to insert a bibliography for an assignment, so could you please add Reference tab as in the Desktop version? It would be very useful.

  15. Add support for pasting formatted text and HTML into Word

    Pasting formatted text and HTML copied from web pages into the Pages app works, but this does not work in Word for iPad. It's a critical use case.

  16. Recover lost iPad word documents

    When my iPad froze trying to close a word document after trying all the normal routines, I closed and re-booted, on opening the document was still there, not sure what I did but it finally went and back to normal. Except the document could not be recovered. I note your comments that it is gone for good. How about rectifying this problem. It seems to be a common fault.
