  1. Add shared calendar functionality on Android Phone

    Outlook on O365 is able to display my shared calendars, but outlook on Android does not allow me to view my shared calendars.

    • black dot bullet point appears to be missing for many users

      Many of my users on Office 365 do not have the black bullet point in Word or Outlook. There is an empty square when you click on the bullet point button. If you go to the dropdown and change the bullet, none of the other black dot bullet points display either. The arrows and squares seem to be fine. We can see the black dot as an option, but in the document itself, it is not displayed. I have tried reinstalling the font, reinstalling office, rolling back office to a previous version, and editing the registry. It seems to be…

      • Personalised Contact Group Emails

        I just want to put a personalised 'Hi John' etc at the start of each email. I have tried to Google it but everything leads me to the mail merge application. This just means I have to individually select up to 100 names even though I have set up a contact group. Outlook will not let me mail merge the contact group.

        • Hide check out button for SharePoint read only users

          Users who only have read access to a SharePoint site can also open office documents in client application. The check out button in the ribbon is also displayed for this user who are not able to use it! Please check the user permissions when downloading the files from SharePoint and do NOT display this button for read only users anymore. This behavior is reproducible in SharePoint 2013 and 2016 On-Prem.

          • Let us resize the Notes pane when recording audio on a PowerPoint

            The notes pane is now super small in PP2017. If your notes are long, you need to scroll an awful lot and it's difficult to read fluently. I really don't see the point in removing that option since it was rezisable in the past. Whhhhhyyyyyyyyy

              • Allow the Activate Office prompt to be disabled when using SSO

                In our environment (healthcare) there are many shared computers. A few of our users only need to be able to read documents/powerpoint files. We have SSO/ADFS setup so Office "just works".

                For the unlicensed read-only users they are prompted to Activate Office every time they open a Office program. This isn't a very good user experience.

                I would like to disable the Activate Office prompt for those users to improve the experience.

                • SRX617092193569265ID - Horrible Support trying to get Co-Authoring to work on Office 2016 ProPlus C2R

                  Co-Authoring does not work as described. When opening a O365 support call I must have been transferred tree to four times. One "support Engineer" had me run a .batch file to get update which caused my Offcie Insall to totally crash. I had to reinstall the whole Office 2016 Pro Plus suite

                  • Why does the spell check now suggest rephrasing a lot more than before?

                    I am building on the post with the title "Recheck and redo your Microsoft Word 2010 templates to have correct grammar and correct spelling."

                    Why does the spell check now ask me to rephrase everything down to the shortest possible way of phrasing something?

                    I have a pretty good grasp on the English vocabulary and can judge how to express my arguments on paper, so when I write "on a daily basis" and "in order to" that is exactly what I want to write, but the spell check keeps suggesting that I write "daily" and "to" respectively.

                    This is annoying,…

                        • Fix the problem with Insert picture from file not listing all my files in the selected folder

                          In Word Version 15.35 on my Mac, when I try to insert a picture from a file, I get a listing of the folder, but it does not contain all the files from that folder. This occurs whether the "All Files" or "Photo files only" option is set. If I try other folders, it seems all the files are listed, but it does not work for the current folder.

                            • A pity that they do not have the images. They could give access to them. They do not compare to those currently available.

                              They could give access to the wide repertoire of images, screensavers and wallpapers of the old versions of windows. It would be fantastic if they were available.

                                  Hi. I'm using the newest version of Outlook (Build 8326.2107) and have (successfully) synced it with my Outlook.com account. However it is not possible to change the file location of my OST file anymore - even when deactivating the cache mode and restarting Outlook. Can you somehow fix this issue and make it possible to select a new file location path even when the account is already configured (what anyway has to be done first)??? Thank you!

                                      • 'Highlight Error' options in the spell checker (Excel+)

                                        When using the spell checker in excel there are 2 functions missing.

                                        One is to highlight the actual word (not just the cell) as the spell checker is analysing it so that you can see if it is the correct word for the sentence before correcting, ignoring etc. (particularly useful for large texts, proper nouns and my next task).

                                        Then to have the option to highlight the spelling/grammar mistakes rather than correct or ignore them. This is very useful if you are proof-reading someone else's work, which I need to do extensively.

                                          office went from bad to worse with every release since office 2010, i suggest you should make it better then badder. this time example: no pictures from scanner possible.
