  1. 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,
    1. There is no Go-To button for Android, making it difficult to…

  2. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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

  7. 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 !!!

  11. 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.

  16. I'd like to achieve the same APA formatting as with the desktop application of Word within the Word for Android app.

    Within the desktop app, you'd select the "Reference" menu tab, input source information via the "manage sources" option, and then utilize the "insert citation" option for easy incorporation of source data into the document. Ideally, the same tab, same sources compilation abilities, and same insertion method would be present in the mobile app.

  20. Enable navigation of Office 365 sites

    In Office for Android it was possible to navigate to sub sites however now it seems you have to type the URL. Please make sites navigable!
