  3. Include graphics with user instructions to show user where to find things

    Make your product and your instructions "idiot proof" by making user instructions simple and clear. Include graphics so users know how to follow the instructions easily.

  5. Connect teams calendar with mailbox exchange on premise

    I have an exchange on premise. I can't migrate to exchange on line.

    Mailbox on premise does not work with teams calendar. The calendar tab does not appear in teams.

    Could you develop one parameter to link the calendar tab with the exchange on premise ?

    Thank you.

  6. Fix problems with Office 365 in Android 8!

    After latest updates, Word and other Office 365 apps kraschs in Android 8. They open nicely for a few seconds, then krasch. (It worked before, and I have no problems in my tablet running Android 7.)
    I have restarted and reinstalled, but that does not help. Microsoft support give me only the advice to use this site.

  8. If we do not already have a voicemail symbol or character, it would be cool to add. Not common to use, but we have a list of those- ArticiaH

    I was in the process of updating a manual for my job and I was having a hard time locating the universal voicemail symbol/character to use. It would be cool to create this shortkey to add with the other 1000 we have. Or if someone already has the shortkey --- Help! Could not find it anywhere.

  10. Shared with me files visible in Office apps when you open from OneDrive

    Would be nice to be able to see Shared with me files in Office apps when you have OneDrive mapped. The open dialog browsing to your files in OneDrive doesn't show that.

  12. I would love to have the possibility to have a diagonal strike-through and not just a horizontal one.

    I deal with very many different languages on a daily basis. Many of them, such as English and French, are full of so-called "silent" letters, such as the "gh" in "eight". When I work with my students, I suggest they put a diagonal slash through these letters as a means of reinforcing the fact that they are written but not pronounced. Due to the shape of many letters, your regular horizontal strike-through is often not very practical.

    For now, to get something close to my desired effect, I go to illustrations and add a small line which I then copy…

  13. Office365 forums to have auto translation feature

    The discussions or ideas are usually posted in English in this community. It would be great to have an inline auto-translated feature so that feedback from someone who do not read/write English can be reflected.

  14. Fix word wrapping bug in Office products when documents or presentations originated in Asia.

    For documents or presentations that originate in Asia, latin text wraps in the middle of words by default. The only way to correct this is to enable an Asian language, restart office, and then fix on a paragraph by paragraph basis. I cannot think of any good reason for enable word wrapping by default. If someone wants words to wrap mid-word, then make it a selectable option, but not a default.

    Answer, Answer all, Forward, Chat

    Where is the option "Call sender using Skype" or "Call sender using Teams". I first have to open the chat although my intention is not to chat but to call.

  16. support all Monotype fonts

    Dear Microsoft Office,

    Today I purchased the font Perpetua Std Complete Family Pack direct from the major font foundry Monotype. However, this version of Perpetua will not display in Word 2019 (version 1902, build 11328.20154 Microsoft Store) in Windows 10 (version 1809, OS build 17763.379), although it installed OK without any error messages. On screen, in all of the different viewing options, it displays as a Microsoft sans serif font. It does, however, print out OK on all different printers (hardware printers onto paper, PDF, WordPad, OneNote, XPS, etc) and, curiously, it can be viewed OK on screen in Excel.

  17. Repair Office 365 "Microsoft Volume Licensing email", which includes link to start using Online Volume Licensing Service.

    When purchasing new Office 365 Volume License which needs to activate for a new company, domain and user, the "Welcome link" from "Microsoft Licensing" points to a web page "https://licensingonlineservicesactivation.microsoft.com/OSA/Registration?..." of which cannot be used to create a new onmicrosoft.com domain for a new company and a user. Error 2001 is received every time, which doesn't help to solve how to get forward after the error. Despite the error, the written onmicrosoft.com -domain and used/passwd was registered / reserved, which blocked using it again for another try. Googlin' finally got me to a website "https://portal.office.com/commerce/productkeystart.aspx" from…

  18. Provide/suggest solutions to view docx source code

    User Godsmith worded my question/concern very well at

    https://superuser.com/questions/539919/view-source-equivalent-for-word-documents

    Basically, I'm looking for a LaTeX-editing experience for producing .docx files, with the high control of formatting and display of my Word document.

    Issue after issue after issue with formatting word documents keeps arising. There are better solutions such as LaTeX, however my workplace demands the use of Microsoft Word. So I am stuck with using Word.

    Is there a way I can control what is happening with my Word Document at the source code level so that I have better control over the formatting and display options?

    I know a…

  19. BUG: Outlook Build 1908 - 11929.20300 Missing REPORT MESSAGE Button

    See Ticket: 17055270 which includes screenshot

    ADMIN ] SETTINGS ] SERVICES & ADD INS ] REPORT MESSAGE was working until a few weeks ago and I unsure what changed. The REPORT MESSAGE button no longer appears in Outlook 365Pro v1908 and I see CONNECTED SERVICES show in a yellow box as OFFLINE in all Office 365 Pro+ products.

    Support had me roll back OfficeC2RClient.exe /update user updatetoversion=16.0.11328.20392 and both CONNECTED SERVICE S and REPORT MESSAGE button appeared as expected.

    As such we assume there is a problem with version 1908 you will want to reseolve.

  20. Undo command within Excel worksheet and workbook

    At this moment, if you open more than one Excel file, change contents in these files and want to undo some changes in only one file, it is impossible, because Excel will undo changes in all the files that you do not need to change.
    I need the undo command in Excel applied in within a worksheet instead of affecting other sheets.
