  1. Idea – Reduce customer journey time by adding functionality into Demand Centre to get leads to self-qualify and allow leads can leave GEP to

    Detail:
    In Ireland, we have been leveraging Certain in FY17 to accelerate the customer journey by leveraging the event forms to gain more customer insights and assessing their needs which is driving a high volume of customer leads. This effort is accelerating the customer journey and on-boarding/transacting of customers to Microsoft products and services. In one instance for a 1200 person event, we have generated 700 qualified leads where the customer wants to interact with Microsoft or a Partner.

    Our idea explained:
    • Add functionality into GEP where leads are asked questions to identify their BANT (budget/authority/need/timing) by asking them…

        • Solve the Word 365/2016 Slow Typing Issue

          Since Word 2016 was published, it has very serious performance issues on devices with high resolution displays like the Surface Book and Surface Pro. As soon as a document is longer than about 1000 words, there is a terrible typing lag, i.e. text appears on screen much slower than you type.
          The typing lag is particularly bad in tables and when markup mode is used.
          This bug is a terrible productivity killer. I can absolutely not understand how it can persist since mid 2015 without being corrected, even more since it mainly appears on Microsoft hardware.

          The bug is reproducible.…

          • windows dark theme and office colors

            This issue occurs with Windows dark themes, or when the Window color in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance\Advanced appearance settings... is set to a non-white color.

            In this situation, any gray scale color in any Office program (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) is changed. Applying 'white' to an item actually applies the window color defined above.

            As highlighted in https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_excel-mso_windows8/excel-and-high-contrast-theme-non-workable/753ecdcb-08e1-4396-b0df-4854cdb06f05, this is unworkable for several reasons.

            I'll add my own experience here with Powerpoint:

            1/ I want a presentation with a white background. So I have to set the background color to ... black (very intuitive, isn't it?) !!!…

                • allow me to customize the ribbon on Mac

                  I just bought 2016 Office standalone for Mac. I cannot customize the ribbon, which makes this product completely unusable and worthless for me as a professional editor. Apparently I *can* customize the ribbon if I have a 365 subscription, according to MS support.

                  If makes me furious that you do have this basic, necessary functionality available, but you choose not to include it on the standalone version. I will be returning the purchase and going back to Office 2011 until you get this shit fixed.

                    • Host Resolving Error on Windows 7 (includes Internet Explorer)

                      Hello and good day,

                      I contacted the microsoft service to report a bug concerning Windows 7 and the support redirected me to this very site.

                      I don't know if this bug will get fixed or just ignored since its Windows 7 but I found a bug in it and would like to report it so Microsoft could take a look at it.

                      Windows 7 does not resolve all the hosts accurately.
                      I stumbled upon this problem a few months ago but didn't think of it much but when I talked with others about it and found that Windows 10 manages…

                            • Spell checker "add to dictionary", "ignore once" and "ignore all" buttons should be placed above Suggestions box

                              Hello. With the recent MS office update, spell checker was modified resulting in the "add to dictionary", "ignore once" and "ignore all" buttons been placed below the Suggestions box. In this way the buttons keep moving around making it hard to repeatedly use the Ignore function.
                              I would suggest that these buttons are moved back above the suggestions box.
                              In the same context, the keyboard shortcuts for these buttons do not seem to work. Please consider a fix to this.
                              Many thanks

                                  • Viewer-only app for Android

                                    As I don't use MSOffice for creading/editing files, I would like to see a viewer-only app for MSOffice files. I don't want to use up the storage space for a full-sized app I won't utilize, especially since I only occasionally need to view other's files. Using www.office.com is of limited usefulness, since I'd likely be away from an internet connection when I want to view them (otherwise I'd just be using my computer to view them).

                                      • avoid attaching image that has been embedded into the text of an Outlook email message

                                        I am sending an email message in Outlook with a couple embedded images. For some reason these images are also added to the message as attachments. I don't want them attached. I only want them embedded in the text of the email. What can I do to prevent images from being attached?
