  1. improve Office upgrade to 2016

    lost all app shortcuts (in taskbar and w10 start menu) - please do not delete app shortcuts, replace them with the 2016 analogues
    Why do we need to re-authenticate, re-activate Office? Please use the current activation credentials first.
    OneDrive needs credentials after upgrade, doesn't take them, just keeps the credentials window open. After restart still credential error, clicking on Enter credentials in systray finally makes the sync error go away.

    • Allow fill and line colors in PowerPoint to use "multiply" or "darken/lighten only" transparency modes

      Allow fill and line colors to have transparency modes other than straight transparency as it has now. Other graphics packages have, for example, "multiply" or "darken only" transparency modes. This makes it much easier to define a "highlighted area" on an image. For example, if you want to highlight a label on a map or document you could draw a box around it with a yellow "multiply" fill that would make white areas yellow, but black areas stay black. As it is now, if you just set the transparency to 50% on the yellow fill, the formerly white areas turn…

      • Allow Admins To See Who Installed Office On Devices

        Foe Example:
        User 1 uses installs Office 2013 on a device. Some months later User 2 installs Office 2016 on the same device.

        To overcome this I would like to see a 'devices' page showing what is installed on each device and who installed it.

        • Allow Administrators To Have The Ability To See Which Version Of Office Is Installed On Devices

          I would like the facility to see which of my users have yet to upgrade to Office 2016. I would suggest a 'Devices' page on the dashboard which lists each device showing the version installed and which user installed the software.

          • Please return the ability to customize the QAT to include individual border buttons

            On my work computer (running Word 2010), I can have particular buttons for border types. I have "All borders," "No borders," and "Top border" each as individual buttons, because these constitute 95% of all the border changes I do in Word. At home, with the new 2016 version of Word, this is no longer an option. I can only have the whole stupid menu, which is already on the Home tab and contributes absolutely no ease of use whatsoever.

            Note to MS programmers: THE ENTIRE POINT OF THE QAT IS TO MAKE IT CUSTOMIZABLE FOR THE THINGS YOU USE REGULARLY…

            • Features Updates for all Office users

              Dear Office team,

              I'm not satisfied with the user experience you are doing with Office. As a normal Office 2016 users (no subscription), I'm very sad to see that I am not able to get new features updates like Office 365 subscribers. What's sad about that is that normal Office users like me are paying more, but for less features.

              That's not normal, because we are all the same users and we all pay for your products. Why not doing the same thing for everyone?

              What I would like is continuous features update until you release the new Office Version…

                Full features (of MS Office) should be included with the online version, as if the Office product(s) were installed on a computer.
                Microsoft Office should also be Unix/Linux friendly out of the box, without the use of WINE.

                • Enable streaming Office to computors with no Office (this was taken away late-2014)

                  This was a feature of Office 365 subscribers where you could stream Office (the whole programs) to a computer that did not have Office, no installation required, and when you shut down the programs, they were gone. Perfect when doing a PP-presentation that needed transistions that are not in PP Online or in older versions that were on that computer, or when working with something on a temporaily computer at work or school that doesnt have Office.

                  This feature worked great, and was a killer feature compared to everything else, but it was taken away a year ago because few…

                  • Visual bug: names/addresses are not vertically aligned according to language in Outlook 2013 & 2016

                    There is visual/aesthetic bug in Outlook 2013 & 2016 (mail compose window).
                    Suppose I'm sending a mail to two users, one called John Smith and the other called 陳大明 (whether they are already recorded in my People is not relevant).
                    After I put their names (and email addresses) in To: field, their names are NOT vertically aligned.

                    • Enable changing of regular billing day for Office 365

                      There are home users of office of 365 who for various reasons need to have bills paid at certain times of the month and there is no easy way to change the billing date for Office 365. Lets get real having to cancel, then wait for the next month and then sign back up again is just plain an unwieldy and rather stupid way to have to do it.

                      • Allow two proofing languages at the same time

                        I usually type both in Hungarian and English and sometimes I use both in one email or document and it is really annoying when it does not automatically recognize which language I use and marks all my words especially when it is a mixed content email (English and Hungarian).

                        • Allow users to choose on which calendar a meeting request appears

                          When an Outlook meeting request is received/accepted, it appears on the default/main calendar. For those with multiple calendars, we should be able to choose which calendar this request is saved to.

                          Preferably, this would work across accounts, but at a minimum should work for those with multiple calendars under one 395/Exchange/OWA account.

                                Every time in a multi language Office 2016 Click-To-Run environment you try to select different languages for display and help in the preferences dialog box, this selection is not persistent. You can test it by re-opening the preferences dialog box or by just trying the settings on any Office application. Help language always follows UI language.

                                Can you establish the opportunity to persistently select two different languages as it once was in msi versions before?

                                    • Skype for Business - detect talking on mute and alert user

                                      I spend a lot of my working life in conference calls and it's very common to have to say "you might be on mute" when an awkward silence develops - invariably someone's gone on mute and then forgotten to take themselves off mute when they speak.
                                      It should be possible for Skype for Business to detect this - when it notices your microphone is picking up voice but you are on mute - and so it could proactively flag this to you by an alert or visible prompt to suggest you might want to come off mute.
                                      This would help…

                                        • Need Office 2016 activation WITHOUT a Microsoft account!

                                          I am the manager of an IT department of a large surgical group with over 200 users. We need to deploy Office with new computers without the ridiculous process of creating MS/Live/Outlook accounts for everyone. That is an unacceptable process for a professional and managed environment. This needs to change or we will be forced to look for other productivity solutions.
