  1. Cross-application authentication (esp. SharePoint SSO)

    Office on iOS is lacking cross-application authentication, especially for SharePoint SSO. For example, when opening a SharePoint Library in Safari, it should be able to open any Office document in the respective application, even if the SharePoint site uses some form-based authentication.

    This works very well under Windows but is lacking in Office on iOS. Given that on newer iOS version, it is possible to share cookies across applications, that should be a feature that is possible to be implemented.

  3. Pinned

    When documents are pinned to a device, there should be a warning if the app is being deleted.

  4. Eraser issues on iPad Pro with Apple Pencil

    With Apple Pencil connected, and the eraser tool selected in the draw menu, when trying to scroll with a finger it actually just erases under the finger stroke, but then the action can't be undone using the undo feature in the top left.

  5. Wireless Mouse support within IOS Office (as Citrix did with the X1 Mouse)

    Apples lacking native support for mice limits us with IOS Office.

    Please consider mouse support directly within IOS Office. Maybe a partnership with Citrix to add support for the X1 Mouse?

    (Link to show Citrix X1 Mouse) http://store.citrix.com/store/citrix/en_US/pd/ThemeID.28169600/productID.317779200)

  6. VoiceOver does not speak outline levels

    I train blind and visually impaired people to use special equipment to access computers. I create outlines to use in my training. I also use Microsoft Word on my iPhone. When I load one of my outlines into the iOS app, the outline livels like I. A. 1. a. etc don't speak so I cannot determine what level of my outline I'm looking at.

  7. Single-Spaced Documents Look Double-Spaced in Word Application on iPad!

    Although the Word Application on iPad shows that the line spacing is 1.0, the document appears double spaced. Forum Moderators on Microsoft Community tried to help me with the issue; however, after experiencing the same issue themselves, they suggested that I report the problem here. I’d appreciate it if you could fix the problem. Thank you.

  10. Word does not work with Apple mail. Do I need to use Outlook mail to make it work?

    I cannot load a word file using Apple mail, Does Word require the use of Outlook. So far loading Outlook has not worked but I have not removed Apple mail at this point.

  14. Clickable checkboxes

    Hello,
    When will MS integrate the possibility to create, check and uncheck checkboxes in Documents?
    I think it is an important Feature.

    We've asked and asked—please respond by implementing support for footnotes and tables of contents. We need the ability to insert footnotes and to update existing footnotes. Please implement the ability to update an existing table of contents, i.e., the <fn-9> function in the desktop version.

  16. Need more robust formatting for font, paragraph, and page layout.

    Need more font formatting: add small caps, and add expanded & narrowed character spacing.
    Also, paragraph spacing and page layout are much, much too limited by predefined options: instead, permit the user to enter user-defined numbers for paragraph spacing and page layout margins.

  17. Allows uploading and saving files in flash drive

    Currently words , powerpoint and excel allows saving and uploading in Icloud drive and many other as well . It should also allow uploading and saving of files in flash drive . The portability of files encourage more user using MS office on mobile and tablet.

  18. Support metadata tagging within SharePoint libraries

    It'd be useful to be able to tag documents within the Word app. At the time of writing, if a column within a library is marked as 'required', the file fails to upload.

  19. Word on iPad freezes when working with large documents

    Hello,

    Since the latest update, word on my iPad freezes when i'm working on a large document (500 pages of text). This didn't use to happen and now it is practically unusable. The app freezes for a long time then restarts. I work on this document on my Surface and 2 desktop computers without any issues. I also worked on this document without issue until i updated to last version of word. File is located on my OneDrive for Business location.

    Thank you,

    Serge
