    • Allow a default on screen keyboard to be set

      I have a Surface and in many/most cases the handwriting keyboard is displayed on screen by default. That's not my preference. I would like to be able to specify my default at the machine level and change optionally, not constantly have to change to my preference.

      • Notify Admin via email and the portal about Upgrade to O365

        We totally missed the announcements about 2016 being available on Feb 23rd because there are so many notification in the message center that we don't care about. It would have been good to also get an email reminding us the change was coming.
        For some reason our users are not being prompted to upgrade to 2016 even though we have allow upgrade group policy in place. It would be nice to know the exact day our users will start seeing the in app notifications to upgrade.

        • Amend the range of icon files: eg Reduce the number of duplicates but include more USEFUL ones.

          There are too many similar icons in the icons folder; eg disks,cd's, cameras etc.
          It seems that every time I want an icon - there isn't anything appropriate. Eg: Car/s, boat/s, sports, finances, gardening, travel, holidays hobbies, homes to name but a very few.

          • Add a means in Excel to have the "last modified" date in a cell, in a header/footer, even in a non-macro-enabled worksheet

            Today one has to resort to tricks like http://www.ehow.com/how_6100833_can-last-updated-excel-workbook_.html in order to have the "last modified" date of a workbook (from the file's internal metadata, not from the filesystem or from SharePoint) in a cell. Such a trick is not available for headers/footers. Moreover, this cannot be used in a non-macro-enabled workbook (.xls).

            Please add this capability. Having the date last opened/printed e.g. in the footer of a paper printout is just useless: one want the date the information in the document was last changed.

                • The Office 2016 Activation process is impossible for business's that purchase Microsoft licensing OEM.

                  Allow this product to be licensed through the Office 365 portal, at least accounts can be created with dirsync and passwords can be managed with active directory.

                  • fix onedrive integration in word-excel-powerpoint for uwp on Win 10 desktop

                    When i try to use word-excel-powerpoint mobile for uwp on my win 10 desktop, i can`t browse my OneDrive. I can only browse for local files.

                    Please have it like the phone version where it opens up a OneDrive browser to choose anyfile. Quite confusing really...

                    • Save attachment from outlook 2016 to onedrive directory (of choice)

                      Please add the option in outlook 2016 to save an attachment to OneDrive. This could be implemented similar to the way a document is saved from Word 2016 to weblocations.

                      In OWA it is possible to save an attachment to OneDrive (although I don't understand why it is saved to a temporary atachment directory....)

                      • Restore the user's ability to control the order of the Pinned file list (like it worked in 2013)

                        Right-clicking on the Office 2013 applications (e.g. Word, Excel) brings up a list of Recent files and it also allows the user to "pin" a file so the Pinned files won't ever "fall off" the Recent list.
                        In Office 2013 I had the ability to order the Pinned file list by simply dragging the files around in the Pinned list.
                        This no longer works in Office 2016. Since I normally keep several files Pinned, I now have to visually sort through my long list of Pinned files. This is very clumsy and annoying. Please, please allow me to control the…

                        • Scroll right excel window on focus

                          If two (or more) instances of Excel are open, and one of them has the focus, when hovering the second one, scrolling is still applied to the first one. We need to steal focus from the first window of Excel and then scroll the second.
                          This does not happen with two instances of Word or Outlook.
                          Moreover: if you have 2 Excel, say A and B, you put the focus on A, then open word, then hover excel B and scroll... the scrolling occurs in A !!
                          Please fix.

                          • Table of content function in OneNote

                            Add a 'Table of Contents' function which picks all header formated lines and builds a table of content. The table of content should include links to the header, so you can jump to the header.
                            Mainly a table of content function like the one in MS Word would be great. One with a reducted functional level would be appropriate.
                            Especially in larger OneNote pages, such a function would strongly improve user experience and structuring of documents.

                              When you paste an address, eg. from and RSVP event, the location field in Outlook 2016 should paste everything in the clipboard instead of the first line up to the line break.

                              Logic to automatically detect address would be great too, where it gives you a drop down list of what it could see in the body of the email (when users click on (reply with meeting option)

                                Several days ago, I spent well over two hours on the phone with Microsoft wanting to install Office 365 Business for 2013. After numerous and numerous transfers, I kept hearing the same thing, 2013 is no longer offered. I have to go to a local store and ask if they have a copy for me to buy. I didn't want to buy it, I wanted the monthly payments. I teach MS office and most of my clients are just switching to 2013. I have 2013 home and will keep the subscription, but needed the Pro version. One representative, advised that…

                                  I was expecting this from the start:
                                  Switch Office automatically to Touch Mode when Windows 10 switches to Tablet Mode.
                                  This can be enhanced for other Apps with Touch Mode like the Adobe suite.

                                    • more themes, nice dark theme

                                      More theme options please - amazes me that Excel offers thousands of pointless, time wasting, cell formatting options and styles but only 3 ugly application themes.
                                      The White theme is too bright - The colourful theme is a drab ugly green and Grey theme is truly horrible - I want an attractive dark theme designed by a designer not a nerdy geek.

                                        Were forever forgetting our passwords and security is crucial. I patented a new concept using your fingerprint to access your computer or any other device via Bluetooth so as to start your auto or turn a TV set on thus identifying yourself.

                                        • Please give us control over when Windows 10 installs updates

                                          It is in my opinion ESSENTIAL that you give users control over when updates are installed. I am really surprised that there seems to be no Uservoice comment on this “problem”.

                                          I need control over what and when I download, as I spend most of the year traveling, mainly in the third world, where I almost always have very limited bandwidth. In fact I often use my phone as a hotspot, and try not to download more than around 20 MB per day. I definitely do not want Windows using all the credit on my cellphone with a few involuntary…
