  1. Bring back the barcode in Word 2016

    I use the barcode for book info sheets and it's far easier for a buyer to scan the barcode rather than having to type out the ISBN. I'm not sure why it was discontinued but it would be great if it could be reinstated.

  4. Onedrive with share information

    I would Onedrive add new feature in Onedrive application is "share" which easy to manage what I shared; share with me and stop sharing.

    Moreover, stop sharing now only work with ONLY ONE folder. I would suggest this feature can apply multi folders.

    Thanks for reading.

    Regards,
    Hoang

  8. Restore a mailbox to specific point in time

    Had a user delete emails contained in a folder, not the folder itself. He had over 6,000 emails in that folder. Now he has to sort thru all his deleted items and restore a few at a time.... We were using an email product, that as an admin, I could restore a users email to a specific point in time... Microsoft having the admin's hands tied, is getting very frustrating not only for the admin but the user's as well.

  9. change Tools->Word Count to not count words in footnotes.

    I use Word Count to estimate timing when writing speeches. I have always used footnotes in these speeches, and need to continue to do so. In previous versions I could select text in the body of a Word document and make an estimate. But it now includes the words in the footnotes. It is impractical to create or keep current a second copy of the speech without the footnotes.

  15. Update Word and get MLA 8th Edition!!!

    This has been suggested but apparently ignored. Update Word to include MLA 8th edition formatting. It's been out long enough this should have been done awhile ago. There is no point having the referencing tab if you aren't going to keep it updated.

  16. Fix bug in spelling and grammar checking in Office client software

    In Office client software, there is a bug that keeps both Office and Outlook for checking spelling and grammer. Somehow a property gets set that makes the software think that a word or phrase was already reviewed and the user approved the inaccurate spelling. This can be see in Word proofing options when two boxes are checked telling Outlook to ignore errors. The same happens in Outlook, but I can't find similar boxes, so not sure how the property gets check. In Word, it is insufficient to click "recheck" unless those two boxes are first clear. It also does not…

  18. Excel : Filter > search for comma formatted numbers

    In the filter dropdown where numbers are formatted in commas, excel should be able to search number ignoring comma. GIF file example is attached in the link, where excel was not able to search comma formatted number. Comma had to be entered manually in search box

  19. include cascade update in microsoft word, suppose there several copies of the same document saved in different location

    usually when working on important documents u have multiple backups, cloud, different directories same machine, thumb drive just to ensure u have at least a recovered copy of the original. But then the challenge is on updating the changes to the other copies. What if there was a feature that when u click save it will update the current versions in all copies, in specified locations. more like select predefined saving locations for a file and it should automatically update all the other copies on a single save click
