  2. Office keeps losing file associations with it's own file types and the only way to fix it that works is to reinstall it. Fix this problem!

    Make it so office doesn't arbitrarily lose file association. Trying to ressociate them doesn't work and you have to reinstall the entire office suite. This should not happen. Please fix this issue.

  3. Get back old icons of apps (Outlook, Word, Excel, Teams, ...) on Office.com.

    Please, get back old icons of apps on Office.com. New version from February 2019 are good for packaging, not for web. Old version was simple, but modern.

  4. Add Site Setting back to the gear icon in Modern Pages

    Site Settings" link was recently removed from gear drop-down and placed w/in a new gear drop-down "Site Information". Given how frequently site admins need to access Site Settings during their daily work, we are extremely disappointed at this development!

    We would LOVE to see set setting back on the gear icon.

  5. please try to block www.ofice.com

    when a user misspells www.office.com/myaccount and types in www.ofice.com/myaccount he will be redirected to a malicious page that is also showing up ads (possible for the good of the owners) but also will show scareware "your data will be deleted if you do not click here and there"

    can you please takeover or shutdown this domain?

  8. App Launcher and default O365 start page

    In both the App Launcher and the default 0365 start page:
    1- allow the user to pin or unpin ANY of the applications, whether they are an O365 apps like Word, Excel, Delve...or an internal business applications that a Tile has been made for
    2- allow the user to re-arrange the apps in whatever order they wish
    3- do no automatically add apps by default based on users usage to either the App Launcher or start page
    4- Allow Admin to preset the available apps that show for a user so that Admin can dictate what the start page and/or…

  9. Ability to remove or hide "Discover"

    The landing page automatically displays "Discover". There should be an option to hide these from being displayed permanently or temporarily.

  10. A notification of spec change should be made

    Before the file with over 14 full-width characters downloaded from SharePoint would miss parts of the name from the 14th character
    But the issue seems resolved now, cause the full name can be displayed even the file’s name is over 14 characters
    If the spec really change, please give a notification to the users.

  11. Note field for each individual software license

    Can't you supply a note field for each copy of office in MyAccount so that it can be tied to an asset number?

  12. Skype Web Client on all Office 365 pages.

    Currently if you are in the Outlook.com (Mail, people or Calendar) section of Office 365 you get a Skype Client option on the top navigation bar next to alerts.

    This would be tremendously useful if it was an option no matter where you were navigating within Office 365 and especially in SharePoint.

  14. Very hard to find how to enter office home subscription key

    "Account settings" in outlook takes to microsoft account which doesn't have an entry for office subscription

    "View account in OneDrive takes to microsoft account which doesn't have an entry for office subscription

    Having a link to microsoft account in Office is good, however having link to office account would be more helpful. I find it very hard to find an easy way to enter subscription key for office 365 home subscription. Users have to go through these steps to find a place where to enter activation code for office 365 subscription:
    1) Click on office tile or type office.com in…

  15. Fix the "Go back to your last spot" in Word 2016.

    That awkward moment when Word 2013 is better able to find where you left off a One Drive document better than Word 2015.

  16. Change description of "You recently opened this" in the Recommended section

    When a user browses search results, viewing a file's thumbnail will access the file. These files will then appear under the "Recommended" section as a file opened by the user, causing confusion.

    Example: "You recently opened this, Mon at 1:34 PM"

    I would suggest removing this information or at least describe it as an item that appeared in a search result.

  18. Provide setting to disable Autosave at the desktop and mobile versions

    The default autosave setting can destroy a spreadsheet if you open a complex one, do some modifications for test and realize that autosave has overwritten your file with a useless version. It should have a global setting that will turn this feature off to all files. The option of changing registry entries is ridiculous to ask to a normal user to do and it will not work on an iPad or other mobile platform at all

  19. Add slide sorter view to Office 365 Powerpoint online

    In order to organize any realistic talk, with more than 10 slides, it is important to have the slide sorter view. This feature is present in any presentation software, including PowerPoint for Desktop, but not on Office 365 online and also not on Office for iOS
