Needs a navigation option for Word
On the original desktop version, there is an option to pull up a navigation pane; and the ability to jump to headers in different sections of a document. Great for reports, novels or collected archives of dated work.
The Android version is incredibly limited in this sense; since you don't have any choice but to scroll through all the pages (what could be thousands). A 'jump to the end' option would be a great start. Though a jump to header or a navigation menu would be the best answer. And a grab bar for scrolling would also be useful.

Please, please, please add this feature.
Like Shawn says below, I was so excited to finally pull up my doc on my new tablet, until the beautiful pages in my hands had no navigation pane! How can one organize, rearrange, or keep track of all these sections? My attempt to make writing with a disability easier is ruined and I am forced back to my laptop where at least I can navigate properly.
Please help and add this feature soon.
I have no need for Microsoft Word if it doesn't have this feature. Moving chapters around based on the header and seeing the layout of my document is an essential part of writing!
My laptop died so I'm stuck using my tablet for now. I'll continue using Google Docs until this is added.
I also badly need this feature. At least on tablets. At least for the first level of headings.
No navigation pane on mobile devices renders Word practically the least convenient way to write in the modern age. It is still the best long-form-document software available. But, come on, everyone writes on their phone. And every major mobile writing app offers some form of document navigation besides scrolling through hundreds of pages. And it was apparently an available option on windows phones, it even had it's own dedicated button. Get with it Microsoft.
Needed for chromebook

Should at least be available on Android tablets. Document Navigation could be a persistent panel like the Comments panel.
yes, it is very needed for mobile version (android & ios).

Upgraded my tab, but it's an Android, and without navigation header options, my 365 subscription is rendered nearly meaningless. MS really dropped the ball here.
When we have lot of headings the Desk top version is needed for navigation. Could have it in the Online version and Android version to increase the value
