  3. Improved synchronization of MS Office apps between online and desktop versions

    Files often become out of sync even when opened by one person.

    I have a file that is said to be locked by myself when I have sved and closed all desktop and online versions.

    Results in wasted productive time and extra files and memory usage when a new file must be created to replace the file that is "stuck".

    Better editing of files online might eliminate the need to download onto desktop (e.g. graphic files do not render the same online as on desktop)

  5. I can't open a file that is "View Only" in On-Line Excel. Have to copy the file using File Explorer to make a copy of the file.

    We use files saved in SharePoint as "templates" for various things. The templates are set up as "View Only". If you try to save one to your one drive, it gives an error message or if you try to "Open in the desk top application", it gives an error. The only way I have been able to make a copy of a file like this is to use file explorer to copy the file from SharePoint to a different location, then open using the desk top application! Please fix it!

  10. How about when I download the Excel file you make don't have the spreadsheet appear upside-down and in a mirror image. It would be much mor

    Excel files shouldn't open upside down and mirror image! Crazy idea, I know. But I'm not dyslexic enough to work on mirror image spreadsheets - just not a talent of mine!

    Also - how about a Save As function that would save the document? I know you have better ideas than I do about what to do with my documents, but please just let me be me!

    Overall rating of Office 365 at this point is 0 stars out of 5. You people are failing. Completely.

  20. You should be able to insert copied cells with out getting an error. This is a standard practice for the desktop version.
