  1. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. Provide for a permanent document /page format

    It would be a huge time saver if there was a group of settings (a style template) to allow a permanent document format.Examples could include page size and format (portrait or landscape), margins, font and font size, etc. The settings in this regard in Outlook 365 (2016) come to mind as an example.

  10. Include A Search Option

    If you have lots of separate documents saved on your device, locating a particular document can be a nightmare. You have to physically scroll through files hoping you don't miss what you are looking for and then have to start all over. Or you'll have to exit the app and search in storage.

    A simple solution is the put a search function at the top of the open app, so users can type the title of the doc and have the app pull up all docs with that title. This should be an easy function to add. Other less popular…

  16. night mode...text format changing of whole content without selecting all.

    Everything is good but there are some missing tools and features in mobile view. Such as night mode...and the most irritating drawback is that there are two margin left and right, both are taking unusable and unreasonable space. No option for "always screen on' during reading. This app is for mobile device. So for such a smaller device if the text alignment fit the whole scree during reading, that's better for all users. And also there is a necessity of a option to change whole content text format without selecting all. You can go through 'wps office' app for better…

  18. 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.

  19. 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
