  1. Simple search for finding Office 365 Groups & Team Sites in the Save As dialog

    One of the most annoying things in Office 2016 for me currently is the save as dialog. It's very easy to save a document to Onedrive but if I'd have to save the file to a Group or to a team site it's always a big hassle to find the right URL.

    The Save As dialog needs a simple search so that I can find groups and team sites and pin the most frequent ones. It needs to be as easy as browsing through folders on my Onedrive.

    One of the possibilities could be to create linked folders from Onedrive…

      • QAT buttons not showing custom images

        Problem
        Happy to say I'm not complaining about the "phat qat" button problem, instead I have a new one.

        Win 10 (2 day old machine)

        I installed 2016 pro Plus, no problem.

        Then I installed 2013 Home and Student MSI. Still no problem

        Today I exported the QAT from my 2010 installation on my old machine and imported it into my new 2010 installation. After some fuzting around I got it to work.

        Imagine my surprise when I opened 2016 and found the QAT had magically appeared there too! I did NOT import it!

        My current issue is that the…

            • Group 2016 Start Menu Shortcuts in Folders

              As per title! Quite annoying that Word, Outlook etc etc is scattered amongst the start menu on Windows 7. I understand on 8/8.1/10 doesn't have this issue due to tiles, but can you re-instate the grouping that 2013 and prior had! Quite frustrating for my users.

                • Contrast Issues with the Dark theme

                  In some parts of Office 2016, the Dark Theme makes the background pattern difficult to see. I've noticed this in Word, Excel and Outlook 2016, in the Backstage view, and the start page.

                      • Add a default option to disable the automatic conversion of long number strings to scientific notation.

                        Most users do not have a need for the scientific notation function and instead have to reformat the cells to Number with 0 decimal places. This is time consuming, particularly when dealing with many files or columns. A setting that would disable this default action would be extremely helpful.

                        • Office 2016 quick access toolbar too wide

                          The quick access toolbar is now twice as wide as it previously was. This is not a good thing for people that have taken advantage of this wonderful option. The title bar is so full it's difficult to find space to click on it when I want to reposition it. The filename is pushed all the way to the right and sometime unreadable due to truncation.

                          There is a new feature in Office 2016 called Touch/Mouse Mode. It enlarges ribbon icons in Touch mode and reverts them to normal size in Mouse mode. Extend that feature so we can revert…

                                  In Office 2013 and earlier Pins were listed alphabetically, allowing quick easy access to your favorite documents because you knew exactly where they were (how far down or exact placement). In 2016 the pins now change order every time you open a file because they are now based on the date/time of the last time you opened it. Now when trying to find a pinned file you have to scroll up and down the list looking for wherever it happens to fall that day at that time; wasting your valuable time searching. This needs to be reverted back to an…

                                  • Excel short date for mm-ddd-yyyy does not work.

                                    Here is a post from a previous technet question, seems to be a legitimate Excel defect.

                                    Hello. I'm having a slight problem with Excel 2013 32-bit and regional settings.

                                    I have Short Date in Regional set to dd-MMM-yyyy (e.g. 12-Feb-2016)
                                    However, when I apply Short Date to cells in Excel, I instead get dd-mm-yyyy (e.g. 12-02-2016)

                                    • Pass through Office365 login to add in programs like dictionary

                                      Seems strange to me that if you are already logged into Microsoft Word with a business account (O365), you still need to login with an MSA account to access the define option at the bottom of the thesaurus. 90% of my users do not have an MSA and will be confused by this login process.

                                      • MS 365 Small Business - remastered package for servicing the people rather than the organisation.

                                        Ultimately the opportunity I highlight (problem if you are negative) boils down to product market fit. Microsoft 365 as a product is undoubtedly broad and deep enough to fit most markets. This indeed is its strength and weakness. It appears to me Microsoft has been steadily addressing this weakness for some time and in my opinion doing pretty well and especially recently as you’ve embraced the market rather than just servicing your ecosystem. I do however detect a distinct lack of knowledge around the challenge your customers face in smaller businesses. As corporates push to become more spritely and virtual,…

                                        • ALLOW creating a distribution email list without Powershell

                                          I work at a school and we need to create distribution groups like emailing to all parents. Unfortunately, office 365 doesnt have a quick way to make this without using the powershell. All other online portals/companies just let the users upload a cvs or excel file and that is all, not powershell.
