  1. Allow business Admin Portal to manage Office 2016 ??? licenses

    Many small businesses want to be able to control Office costs, ie they still REALLY want to buy Office 2016 one-time payment licenses.

    Several other suggestions already complain about needing to provide email address to simply install Office one-time payment licenses.

    Solution. Modify the business Admin Portal to allow people to manage one-time payment licenses with it.

    • Outlook shedule

      With Outlook you can send emails to a later time. This do not work sometimes. The emails can be identified with the send date value NULL.

      Funny is that These emails can never be send again. They will always stay in the outgoind folder

      • Default "Reply" instead of "Reply all" in Outlook web

        Please chnage the default option in Outlook Web to Reply. This is the standard that everyone is used to.

        • Account Pane Not showing enough detail

          On this page of a question there is a screen cap of an Office 365 subscription:

          https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_365hp-powerpoint/powerpoint-office2016-eyedropper-not-working/b88ecba9-c5b7-4fac-ae1a-4e09537c6db6?page=7

          The problem is that it does not show enough detail. It simply says "Subscription product MS Office 365".

          Well, exactly WHICH Office 365 bundle is it!

          Consumer vs Business? Which specific bundle so we can advise the user exactly what to expect from it. Which specific applications, how many concurrent installations (1,2,5?), other "extras".

          Why force them to log in to the MyAccount, or business equivalent, in order to find out their license terms.

          Show the product ID on the backstage pane. Actually,…

            • Resume for Office Applications

              Intro: For almost 5 years, since Apple released Mac OS X Lion in July 2011), Mac users enjoyed "Resume" feature that enables applications to re-open in exactly the same state as before quitting the application or restarting the system, including window positions and contents of unsaved files.

              Problem: Lack of the "Resume" feature is what makes me dread logging off and restarting Windows. Especially when I have multiple Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents open in different virtual desktops on two monitors - having to re-create this setup after the restart is really annoying.

              Suggestion: I suggest Microsoft implements this functionality…

                • Make Excel Online more powerful

                  Many aspects of Excel don't work in Excel Online, even the basic ones:
                  - Smart Art
                  - Shapes
                  - Comments
                  - ...

                  Note that these do work in e.g. Visio (Shapes) and PowerPoint (Smart art)

                    Could be great if office would enable to converter word, excel or PowerPoint directly in different support such as W, EXL or PP to pages,keynote, number or google documents, slide ... and use both documents in cloud to enable people to use the same data in different platform.

                      • Allow Excel users to modify what appears in Quick Analysis

                        The Quick Analysis feature was a step towards making Excel more user friendly. The way to continue that would be to allow us to customize what appears in the Quick Analysis menu, i.e. having different functions, frequently used formatting options etc.

                          It is sad that Google Drive / Docs supports excel keyboard shortcuts for navigation, and your online versions totally blow it off. I mean, you have Outlook online support keyboard shortcuts to some extent.

                            Here's an idea: when you create a new version of Office, try to keep the same features that were in the previous versions. It should get better - not worse! Where's the QAT?

                            • Reinstall menu customisation

                              Previous versions of office (MAC or Windows) would allow full customisation of any of the pull down menus of tool ribbons. This was so useful being able to add frequently used commands in a menu or ribbon that were often buried several levels down in menus, i.e. KeepWithNextParagraph. Why remove this capability, it was so useful?

                                Give me a way to disable this. I can't upgrade because Office 2016 is not compatible with contacts in iCloud. I've tried the solutions mentioned in KB Article kb/3097292 but they have no effect.

                                      • office 2016 for mac "tell me" feature missing

                                        Please add the "tell me..." text box ribbon in Office for Mac!
                                        Reasoning: the new "Tell me what you want to do" ribbon is great for the average user that can find standard functions (like insert picture) only with super-high mental effort. This becomes even more important for the OSX user, who - you know - demands that everything on Apple devices is easy-peasy.

                                          It would be useful to have more than one default period for reminders. For example notify 24-48 hours in advance and then notify 1 hour.

                                          Usually, we like to get a heads up a "few" days before for certain entries then on the day of the appointment we like to get another notification maybe 30-90 minutes prior.
