  1. Users can reserve a meeting room even though it's already reserved

    When I use the client Outlook to create a new meeting and I want to reserve a room I see in the list all the rooms also the occuped room, in OWA this problem don't exist. It's ncessary to uniform Outlook with OWA. Thanks

      • Have tech support monitor "Answers" forum.

        In the Answers forum, MS phone support has a poor reputation. Lots of "accidental" hangs, MS Support inappropriately directing people to the Answers forum etc.

        How about being proactive? Assign a few MS phone support technicians to monitor the various Answers forums to pick up on questions that can only be fixed by a call to MS Support. Ie Office 365 activation problems. They could tell the person exactly WHAT type of fix to ask for, and maybe even provide an internal (department) name or internal extension to ask for to get directly to the required fix. One of the…

        • fix file saving problem in Word

          The problem: select Save for an existing document and instead of being saved, the Save As dialog box appears and then get caught in an "endless loop". Word will not save the document just continue to request a file name.

          In the Microsoft Community this issue has been reported and many "work arounds" have been suggested, but this should be fixed.

            • LinkedIn purchase bad idea

              If the reports are correct (NY TIMES JUNE 16) and MS intends to integrate Linkedin with word or the rest of office so that you are "prompted" with linkedin suggestions for contacts or persons with expertise and this is a default setting then this is the worst idea I heard of since "new coke". This would be a really stupid, stupid action. More importantly, it would be both useless and profoundly irritating at the same time.

              Paying 27 billion for LinkedIn is a very bad business decision.

              • Correct incorrect Swedish grammar in Word

                In Microsoft Word for Mac 2011, version 14.6.4 (160422) I found several errors in the Swedish grammar control, as can be seen in these screenshots:

                http://tinypic.com/r/2hd8h14/9

                The choices should have been ”våra uppgifter” OR ”vår uppgift”.

                http://tinypic.com/r/2njvayo/9

                The choices should have been ”ett protokoll” OR ”protokollen” OR ”några protokoll” OR ”protokollet”. I also note that the grammar check did not catch the first, incorrect, ”det här protokollen” in the sentence.

                http://tinypic.com/r/sziq6b/9

                The choices should have been ”våra veckor” OR ”vår vecka”.

                These are fairly serious errors, especially as I try to encourage students—who may not have Swedish as their first…

                • Add a worksheet index to Excel workbooks

                  Navigating a workbook with the worksheet tabs is cumbersome -- especially on workbooks with a large number of worksheets. Adding an easily accessible worksheet index to Excel Workbooks would be a better solution.This could be a "button" in the ribbon, or an additional option in the "Insert New Worksheet" to insert an Index Worksheet. Wherever it is it should be automatically hyperlinked to the each of the worksheets listed, and it would be nice if there was a comment field where you could leave notes (to yourself or collaborators) explaining the purpose of the worksheet.

                  • Improve "Auto-Hide Ribbon" - This is a Winner!

                    1. Currently if you enable the "Auto-Hide Ribbon" setting, the ribbon hides until you press your mouse along the top edge of the screen and then click. I can't see any reason whey you need to click. It should come back when just hovering along the top edge of the screen to make it lighting fast for you to get it back so you can quickly go between your tools and the document, without having to click.

                    2. When the ribbon is hidden, you should still have the option to minimize the window without having the ribbon re-appear.

                      • I would like to change the stylesheet for blogs.technet.microsoft.com

                        Hi, I like to read the Microsoft TechNet Office Blogs.

                        And I found that values of href Attributes of HTML attributes are printed in printed result(PDF).

                        I made an easy trial stylesheet to change display/non-display status of these values and refered to user stylesheet function of IE.
                        I can do it, but I think Microsoft should change some part of the framework of Bootstrap.

                        I will appreciate it if you consider the change.

                        The data of my stylesheet is as below.
                        ---
                        @media print
                        {
                        a { color: blue !important;}
                        a[href]:after {content: "" !important;}
                        }

                        • Spelling check Microsoft Word for Portuguese Brazil (new ortography)

                          There is an error in portuguese grammar review where words such as "papeis" (papers) are not being underlined with red. Oxytone words and monosyllables ending in éis and óis MUST BE accentuated. Examples: papéis (papers), herói (hero), heróis (heroes), dói (doer verb), sóis (suns), pastéis (pastels). Refer to http://michaelis.uol.com.br/novaortografia.php

                          Also there are some words such as "porém" (however) that Word won't suggest an alternative spelling when you Right Click on "porem" (conjugated verb for "put").

                          I think it is time for Spelling team to review all portuguese terms according to main brazilian dictionaries such as "Aurelio".

                            navigating the support website it would be very useful to have clear pointers to one or the other platform.
                            Furthermore, one of the most important things are the file locations (such as user models) for each Office version (I use 365) and the clear instructions on how to save and reintroduce configurations and data, such as the Outlook files.
                            The support site is good, but so it might become better.

It transpires that - without prior communications to say so - their subscription had to lapse (a worrying concept in itself for a business employing 365 as its mail server), and they would have to subscribe to an alternative 365 plan. This alone required a number of lengthy calls and emails to resolve. Not good.

                                Worse still, all the existing Office (2013) installations have to be uninstalled, 2016 versions installed and everything reconfigured on all their machines - despite them being…

                                  The visual basic editor environment in Excel has not changed in the 10 years I have been using it, ( compare Windows 2000/XP with Windows 10).

                                  - Allow for use of more than 16 colours for the font and background
                                  - Have drop down suggestions of possible next word
                                  - Automatic insert of header template into new items such as Modules, Classes, functions, subs, etc.

                                  - Automatic insert of close bracket, next x, loop, end if, etc.

                                  • Video Portal Channel Office 365 for anonymous users

                                    The video portal Office 365 is a very successful service, but would be well complemented with the possibility to provided access to anonymous users.

                                    • Enhance SmartArt please!

                                      Why have you let SmartArt stagnate. Build some new ones. Spiff up the ones you've got. Enable text search to find the one you want. ... Such a powerful feature that's withering on the vine.

                                      • Spelling check Microsoft Word 2010 for Catalunya

                                        The Microsoft Word 2010 spelling check for English (USA) only accepts as correct "Catalonia" and "Cataluña" but "Catalunya" should also be accepted since it is the correct way to spell it in Catalan, the official language of Catalunya.

                                        • Allow Drawing on Office 2010, 2013, 2016

                                          Through Word, Excel, Powerpoint we should be allowed to draw and ink the documents no matter if the device is touch screen capable or not. A lot of people like drawing but some would like to be able to use the mouse too on non-touch capable devices.
