  1. When installing for the first time, Office asks you to sign in, you have to click twice in the text field to enter your email address.

    When installing Office apps for the first time, Office asks you to sign in when you open an app for the first time, i noticed that you have to click twice in the text field to enter your email address instead of just once. I work in the IT field and install Office all the time, i've noticed this every single time I install Office. We mostly work with Business Premium if that helps.

    • Implement the new insert row or column feature in word to the rest of office

      The feature which was brought out in word a few months ago where you can hover at the side or above the table and click the plus to add a new column or row respectively is really useful and I like it. Can this feature please be applied to Outlook and OneNote (where I also use tables) and probably other Office programs.

      • "Create New folder" button in Share/Upload interface for iOS.

        I am using iOS and often when I decide to upload a PDF document I have acessed I often need to create a new folder. Instead I have to cancel the upload go back to the OneDrive app - create the new folder - then go back to Safari - hit share and upload to the newly created folder. Way to cumbersome.

          • Excel Onedrive runtime error

            Here is a link to a post I created on stack overflow that summarizes my issue. Office support gave me a temporary solution to turn off automatic updates and revert to the version that was working.

                  • Increase Microsoft Classroom file name restrictions

                    Microsoft Classroom currently adds the students name to the file name, which limits what we can use as a file name to very few characters. Either the file name restriction needs to be increased or the student's name needs to not be considered as part of the file name.

                    • Android

                      I had asked for help with the following problem. Trying to sign into OneDrive for Business, Word or Excel on my Android phone (Asus Zenfone 2, OS 5.0) I enter my username followed by my password. The registration process either crashes entirely or I am led back to the beginning.

                      Someone from customer support called me and then told me that there must be something wrong with the application (see his note below). He wrote "Since we've managed to find a proper resolution for the issue faced, I'll go ahead and archive this case." Apparently Microsoft considers the problem solved,…

                        • Equation placement

                          When inserting a new equation, it always appears in the middle of the document. Give us the option to change it to left side of document per automatic.

                          • Mail-enabled security groups should have the same feature as dynamic distribution groups

                            It would be great that if mail-enabled security groups could work in the same way as dynamic distribution groups such as extracting users who meet the specific conditions so that admins can manage users in a mail-enabled security group more efficiently.

                            This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

                            • Teleprompter View

                              When you have to hold a speech,a teleprompter function would be a good help in Microsoft Word. TheTeleprompter View would be similar to the reading mode, however there would be an option for scrolling speed and "Play"-button. The scrolling speed could also be slowed down, if there is a high number of words, especially long words, on the screen.

                              • Level 4 of the Table of Contents formats oddly with less than 9 characters

                                If one has more than 9 characters it formats correctly. MS Support confirmed and suggested I post here for help. The first three levels work fine with any amount of characters. I appreciate all assistance if anyone else has seen this or if this is a bug that needs to be fixed.

                                        • I have been using SharePoint for many years and in previous versions I have always found the built-in survey to be an extremely useful tool

                                          I have been using SharePoint for many years and in previous versions I have always found the built-in survey to be an extremely useful tool for getting user feedback. It adds much more scope for customisation than the new Excel survey tool, it can automatically detect the user completing the survey and I can enhance the page with instructions and images. And it all appears in the web browser with no need for opening a new application (such as Excel). I can also create a button with a link straight into the survey and create a nice ‘thank you page’…
