  2. Shared login with Outlook

    With the iOS office suite I am required to login to each app separately, which can be quite frustrating when my password changes and I re-login to each app separately.

    Apps made by other vendors (such as Google) allow shared account login accross all of it's apps where I only need to login once and all the apps just work.

  3. Auto-save doesn't really save.

    On Word for iPad when you hit the back arrow on the top right you have to save or delete the file, why? Normally you can do back and forth to the menu but not on the iPad. If you don't save it, even with auto-save on you lose the doc and can't go back. Auto-save should save it, the auto part of it, but doesn't always.

  6. Needed Features


    1. Control "Paragraph" features, most importantly the ability to increase or decrease line spacing before and after a paragraph. Currently adjusting line spacing is the only option, which is not sufficient.


    2. The ability to view two documents side by side.


    3. The ability to compare documents into a redline comparison.

  7. Better table editing features

    Allow ability to individually size a row or column in a table. Right now can only autofit or,resize whole table. Very frustrating

  8. Add Quick Parts to iPad Word!

    I would like to use Quick Parts with the word for iPad. Being more difficult to insert text on the iPad, using predefined texts would be a great way to create quicker documents.

  9. Turning off and on automatic numbering, bullets and/or indent

    I have found Mobile Office for iOS, especially Word, is very useful tool but a biggest snag was a lack of a feature that can turn off auto numbering, bullets and/or indent. Often times I prefer not to use auto numbering, bullets and indent but I cannot disable any of them, which is quite annoying. There should be a way to disable or enable these.

  10. Form filling for All Office Documents

    Many clients use iPads for mobile experiences. Customers with O365 subscriptions do not want to purchase another subscription
    just so they can fill in forms (that they already have a huge investment in with Office documents).
    It would be really useful to be able to:

    1. Open a new Office form on a mobile device (e.g. iPad, iPhone, Android Phone/tablet, Windows phone/tablet/PC)
    
    2. Fill in the form
    3. Save back to a SharePoint document library, where workflows could then process that form etc.

    The use of Office documents as a form is required by these customers for the following reasons: …

  12. Centre vertically when reviewing edits/changes

    Please ask MS Word developers to shift where edits appear when clicking next to review. ATM they are ALWAYS at the bottom of the screen. Should be dead centre, as we need to read the context (entire sentence) to decide whether to accept/reject

  13. "OneNote in Word" file format

    Many people might prefer to store and organize their notes in Word files using traditional multi-page "paper" layouts. OneNote layouts don't have boundaries and we can't store and manipulate them like with files.

  14. Customizable keyboard shortcut bar

    Please consider giving users the choice to customize the soft keyboard shortcut bar (introduced in iOS 9). The Scrivener app allows users to do this and it would be very helpful in Word, Excel and PowerPoint as well.

  16. Open documents directly in edit mode from OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online

    Allow documents opened in Word for iOS to open directly in edit mode when the file is located on OneDrive for Business or SharePoint online.

    Today files hosted on SharePoint Online / OneDrive for Business open in read only mode with a Yellow "Server Document" banner. To edit this file users need to click the "More" button then click the "Edit" button.

    Users often mistakenly close this banner and then update the read-only document generating a duplicate.

    This issue also occurs with Excel for iOS and PowerPoint for iOS.

  18. "Welcome Back - Pick up where you left off" feature for iOS is missing

    Hi, this isn't a "new" idea, but rather I was wondering where a feature went to. It's the "Welcome Back - Pick up where you left off" book mark that used to appear in my MS Word for iPhone app. I use my phone in class for taking notes, and I have several documents that are well over 100 pages, and it's difficult scrolling all the way to the bottom. That feature was so handy. After downloading the latest update, that feature disappeared. I have searched for possible solutions on various MS Office forums, but so far haven't found one…

  19. Hardware keyboard forward delete button does not work as expected

    My favorite hardware keyboard for my iPad is the Logitech K380 (http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/multi-device-keyboard-k380), which has separate backspace (delete character to left of cursor) and forward delete key (delete character to right of cursor).

    In the Word document editor, the forward delete key does not behave as expected though, and instead it does the same thing as the backspace key. This is unfortunate, because text editing is much easier if you have both forms of delete. Similarly, in a text box in PowerPoint or Excel the forward delete key does not behave as expected.

    However, in the text search field…
