I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 365 Update this week wiped out all my normal.dot settings

    This is awful. It takes a lot of time to undo all the dumb, auto format and other settings you have as default in WORD now and back to what works like I expect and then the update just wiped that all away and I have to spend time again resetting all those things. And quit over automatting formatting. It's a big waste of my time to undo all this.

    • Allow Office 365 Business Premium upgraders to keep their MS Access application

      Very small business users who are Office 365 subscribers should not have an office application taken away from them or be forced to upgrade unnecessarily to an enterprise level (E3) package to retain it.

      • In Office 365 OWA, allows users to enter search criteria before clicking "Add Room" when scheduling a meeting

        When scheduling a meeting from OWA, Office 365 automatically generates a list of up to 100 possible rooms you can host the meeting at but it doesn't allow you to search for a room or subset of rooms. We have 900+ rooms in Office 365 and likewise this limitation renders the "Add Room" button/field useless because there's no way easy way to get OWA to display a subset of rooms based on user input. Instead, users have to use the "Add People" link, which doesn't set the room as the location of the meeting. Specific steps to reproduce (and what…

        • Colour print

          There are only RGB colours available in Word. CMYK (and Pantone) colours would be more logical as Word docs are also printed (cfr. Publisher).

          • Add options to Digitally Sign and Encrypt email from the framed reply window

            Currently the message compose tools does not have an option to digitally sign or encrypt. This requires two extra clicks to add the options. Additionally, Digitally sign and encrypt are not options we can add via customizing the ribbon.

            • release proofing tools developer kit so we can easily create new language proofing tools

              I work with ancient and extinct languages, and constructed languages frequently, and it would be a huge help to me to be able to develop proofing tools for languages such as Latin, Old English, Middle High German, and so on. I need to be able to create dictionaries, alphabets, sorting order, text order (boustrephedon, right-to-left, left-to-right), grammars, and the like so that I can write and proof texts written in those languages.

              My request is to release easy-to-use proofing tool creators so that we can easily create proofing tools for languages you don't officially support yet.

                The New Email button above the Favorites view in the Folder Pane is too big. It takes up too much space, pushing my favorites and data files views down. Since this button may be added to the QAT, please make is removable from the Folder Pane.

                    • Don't auto upgrade Office 2013 to Office 2016 without warning users. It causes compatibllity issues

                      Instead of PUSHING updates, let the users know there is an update and let them manually update instead. Since our company still has/uses Exchange 2007, Office 2016 doesn't work with it.

                      • Office 2016 is a privacy disaster

                        Just got Office 2016 for Mac through the HUP. Was forced to create an MS account and then use it to activate. Once installed, the apps were already signed into the MS account and when I signed out, Word told me then sign out wouldn't complete until the document finished syncing (I had never given permission for this). Went to live.com to see about minimizing the damage, and found I was already logged in - when I had never visited that site before ever. New outlook.com and Skype accounts were automatically created, and the instructions for deleting them makes it…

                          • Restore window position even if being docked to the left or right with aero-snap

                            Most Microsoft-developed applications don't restore to the same position they were when being closed.

                            This includes all Office applications:

                            - Excel
                            - Outlook
                            - Word
                            - PowerPoint

                            In contrast, other apps behave like I whish:

                            - Google Chrome
                            - Firefox
                            - Paint.net
                            - Editplus
                            - …

                            So my suggestion is to store and restore the _exact_ window positions, no matter whether docked or manually positioned.

                                  Spelling and Grammar window is needlessly small and has tiny tiny font that's almost illegible in the upper part where the actual text is read and highlighted. Why? This is really bad UX.
