  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Custom Page Size

    Currently, page sizes are limited to about five or six options.

    Please include the feature of allowing users to set their own preferred custom page sizes. Said feature is already present in Pages (by apple) for iOS. Can’t see why Word for iOS can’t do the same.

    Thank you very much.

  12. 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.

  15. Allow two of the same Microsoft Office apps to run in split view on iPadOS

    This would allow one to easily compare and simultaneously compare, copy and paste, and drag and drop images between documents. Thank You

  16. Multiple Microsoft Word Instances (windows) support for iPadOS.

    iPadOS supports multiple instances (windows) of a single application. Microsoft Word should support this feature as it is absolutely crucial to the user experience and the users ability to be productive.

  17. Please insert citation, references and bibliography! It’s really needed!

    It’s really disheartening that with an iPad Pro and a subscription needed, you don’t have the possibility to have a full word experience. The possibility to insert citations, references and bibliografy should be in the stock version. Really upset

  18. You should have a recently deleted because people could accidentally delete a file and can get it back.

    A recently deleted. People could accidentally delete a file like myself. I can’t get that file back and it took a very long time to do. People will feel frustrated if they can’t get it back. That’s why I’m suggesting a recently deleted. You could place the feature in the settings area.

  19. Unsaved document recovery option for word for ipad

    Similar to the computer, there should be an option which enables you to access unsaved documents in word, but for iPad. I cant even explain how many times I’ve lost important documents due to my device glitching, word crashing, or me just forgetting to save it. Therefore; i believe this addition would be great for countless people.

  20. iPad OS multiple windows

    When will Microsoft apps on iPad OS/iOS 13 update to allow multiple windows of the same app simultaneously? This would greatly increase productivity when document processing on iPad.
