  1. "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…

  2. 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…

  3. Mail Merge

    Would love top be able to Mail Merge from Excel to Word on my iPad. As I am always working from the road it is easier to carry my iPad and phone but mail merge is an important feature to me and I'm sure many users and would be great to finally be able to leave my laptop at home

  5. Expand formatting tools to add paint bucket tool

    If users are paying for Microsoft services then they would expect it to include all the basic features, like the paint bucket tool.

  6. Offline editing of files on onedrive

    Want to be able to open and edit a file whilst offline and have the changes synced when I reconnect to the internet (like in google docs for ios).

    Currently I have to have the document initially opened from the cloud whilst there is an internet connection, and only then am I allowed to take the device offline and edit it.

  7. The possibility to use Zotero

    Please add the possibility to use Zotero.org plug in.

    Then they can develop a plug in, so that we can cross grade between Word for Mac with Zotero and the iPad and iPhone version.

  9. Word security.

    Excel file can be secured with password from "File" but Word one has to go to "Preferences" which makes it cumbersome, best for both work same way.
    Word and Excel files cannot be secured with passwords when uploaded to Apple 6 phone. Would be nice to have them secured separate from phone security.

  11. Just do whatever it takes to make password protected attachments open-able.

    Important attachments with password should be simply openable.

  17. Add simultanious co-author like in Word 2016 and Online

    You should not have to edit offline, everything should be online, or there should be a way to work on word online in the app, NOT this synching.

  19. Better support for offline work and cloud services

    My company uses Box and I often use Word while commuting offline. Two things:
    - to open a file from Box, I have to take many steps: ...More to open iCloud document picker, locations, Box, file. The number of steps could be reduced, if I could select Box from the main menu, like Dropbox and OneDrive
    - if I use Word to edit a file stored in an offline folder in Box and save and close it, the file disappears from Word. It is somewhere in an invisible upload queue and only when I go back online, it will start…
