  1. Ability to add multiple pictures in a Word document

    When I try to add multiple pictures from the gallery into a word document, I cannot do that. I have to go and add pictures one at a time. This is very annoying.

    I want to first go an add multiple pictures and then I want to go and add text below each of them. This scenario is very hard to achieve currently.

  3. Can we please have a sort function for university users

    University staff and students need a sort function for academic references, as per the desktop version. Without a sort function the usability for professionals is diminished.

  4. Capitalize each word option on Word for Android.

    I miss it so much from the PC version. I print a lot of addresses cut and pasted from documents, but so many people write their address with no capitals at all. I miss that one hit to capitalize every word option.

  5. Allow signing in to Office for Android using multiple accounts

    On desktop and Windows 10 Mobile, you can be signed in to Office apps using multipleaccounts (eg an MSA and an OrgId). On Android, you can only be signed in to one account at a time.

    I frequently access and edit documents from both my personal OneDrive (MSA) and OneDrive for Business (OrgId). On the other platforms, this is a seamless, enjoyable experience. On Android, I have to sign out of one account to access the other. Not so seamless.

    Please allow multipleaccounts to be added so that I don't have to sign in and out

  6. Multi-Window for MS Word

    I thin kit would be useful if MS Word could support split-screen with A) a second word document (so that you can have two word documents up side-by-side) and, B) any another application (e.g. PDF viewer, or browser, or file manager, etc.)

  7. Fillable Word Document on Tablet

    We have Word Documents that are fillable and created by others, so some things are locked. In Word on my computer I can fill in sections that are not locked. They are forms we need in the field. Using Word on a Tablet I can not do that, BUT USING A GENERIC DOCUMENT EDITOR THAT COMES WITH THE TABLET I CAN...seems you need to correct this in Word so that works if they can.

  8. Need Go To function in Word for Android

    Hello
    I am using Office 365 Personal on my desktop and Android devices. The purpose for using 365 is so I can work on my office documents while on the move, OK so far.
    I am a writer and use Word for writing and type setting my manuscript. My manuscript runs to 300 pages plus. Now while this is not an issue on my desktop PC, I do have issues when working on my Tablet. This tablet is a Samsung galaxy 12.2 running Android 5.0.2.

    My issues are,

  9. Make Word for Android tablets compatible with Intel.

    See above. I find it ridiculous that it is not compatible with Intel and am extremely annoyed that I am unable to access Word on my new tablet.

  12. Allow files locked with desktop version to be accessed with Mobile App

    Sensitive files with a password set with the desktop version apparently can't be opened with mobile Word (or Excel). I've seen some issues with OneDrive not allowing secured files to be opened even from a PC without downloading the file locally first... kind of defeats the purpose?

  13. i think you should give rewards like Microsoft based products for using word

    i think you should give rewards like Microsoft based products for using word like for example you get 300 points for typing an essay and it cost 3400 points to get a new surface pro or nokia lumina or something

  14. Set a code when you want to use Word each time (5 numbers will do)

    HI, I have a question about the Word and Excel app for Android. I use OneDrive. When I install the Excel app I can see ALL my files on OneDrive. That's VERY tricky, because when someone else gets my phone, they are able to open all my files through the Word and Excel app. So I deleted your apps. Which is very sad, because the apps are wonderful. When you have to give a code each time you use an Office app, this problem will be solved !!!

  18. Margin customizing and tables improvement

    With my current experience with word for android i've been much working with tables. In my opinion it's essential to be able to merge or split cells. A simple ruler could solve the problem of margin customization. It would be also nicely seen (but i'm not stubborn about that) if we'd be provided with hyphenation.
