  3. idea for user experience

    Dear Microsoft,

    I have a suggestion which if implemented I am sure you will find there is greater user experience when using windows and Microsoft office applications.

    Quite often when one is working on a couple of documents and mid-way wishes to organize one’s files one is prevented from doing so because of the fact that the document is open. One would have to close the document, relocate the file to the desired location and then return to open the file later on. This is frustrating. I am sure the intelligence can track where the desired folder is and provide…

  6. create reports on which user is using modern or basic authentification

    As we enabled modern authentification for Exchange on our tenant, we would like to generate a report to see which users are still using basic authentification and which have switched to modern (I'm not talking about MFA).

  8. Fix an issue with saving new documents on close in Word for macOS

    I have found an issue when using Microsoft Word and an SMB share mounted in the Finder. Steps to reproduce:-

    Open Word, version 16.23 (190309)
    Start a blank document and enter some text
    Hit the close x (DO NOT SAVE FIRST)
    Select to save the document into an SMB share

    The document should be saved and Word closed, but instead the save fails and Word reappears. Meanwhile an empty file is created in the SMB share.

    Interestingly, if you save before closing, everything works as expected.

    This behaviour happens every time and if a user assumes that the file has…

  10. Out of Office feature "Automatically decline new invitations..." shouldn't decline updates to EXISTING meetings

    When you enable automatic replies from the Mail app in the browser, there's an option to "Automatically decline new invitations for events that occur during this period". This option, the way it's worded, is great. However it doesn't function the way it's worded. It doesn't just decline new meetings, it declines updates to existing meetings and that's very bad.

    Here's a scenario that's bitten me three times now. I'm on the road all day visiting customers. My OOF is enabled and I've ticked the checkbox to automatically decline new invitations. The owner of a meeting that I'll be attending later…

  11. missing "subset" that used to allow user to select a typical field like "Greek" to look for symbols

    The subset option is missing under the symbols tag. All help online suggest narrowing down using the subset when I tried to search for the symbols i need. Is there another easier to find the symbols i need?

  12. Uploading Files to Sub Folder in Wiki Page

    When I tried to upload a file in Wiki Page, I can only see document libraries, but there's no way for me to upload files to a subfolder of a document libraries which is highly inconvenient.

    Thanks.

  16. Have separate unique views when collaborating/coauthoring

    When coauthoring a workbook in Excel - if one person runs a filter, it changes everyone's view. This defeats the purpose we're using it for - I need to be working on "New Accounts" while my coworker is updating "Closed Accounts", for example.

    We need the ability to be doing different things in the same workbook, and simply be able to see that someone else is in there, where they are, and whether we're duplicating work. Each user needs to have their own unique view of the data.

  20. Allow users to change the source of an image in a Word Document

    Currently, if I have a document that has images and I want to change the image, I have to delete the image and then insert the new one. If you can introduce a feature where one can right click the photo and choose change source image and simply choose a new photograph that will be inserted with the same size and characteristics and in the same position.
    This will save a lot of time in going through each of the steps especially, the formatting of the image.
    Thank you
