  7. F1 - "Help" button and any other Function button to not be lauched at the first press

    If you press F1 by error (or any of the Function buttons) a side menu is opened and it interrupts the current writing or whatever task I am performing, so is very annoying to have to close it.

  10. Office 360

    Here is my suggestion. Take Office 360 and hide it where the sun does not shine. It is by far the worst idea that any software company has ever come up with. You should have left the ability for the user to maintain the license and launch from their OS. All you did was take the "THIN CLIENT THEORY" and try in your worst possible way to make it deployable from the cloud. Which sucks.

  13. Online Apps in IE - Not a good idea

    We're forced to use Internet Explorer. Despite of the fact, that the new SharePoint is just incredibly slow responding (and this is definitely not due to a slow PC or internet connection), the Office online apps in Internet Explorer are a disease to use. Plus, we also have to use Teams. The apps in Teams differ to the Desktop apps, differ to the online apps slightly. I have Teams in German, but writing Danish and English (god ****** that spell checking... wait, which one?) and all other desktop apps are in English, but suddenly the Teams Office apps is in…

  15. Could you just make it work as efficiently as google docs works please? It is always slow to update, clunky to share and generally unreliabl

    Just be more like google docs; Excel online doesn't do anything better, only worse for online usage, access, sharing and collaboration.

    it amuses me that on here you offer the option to sign in with facebook and gmail, but neglect your own office login!

  16. You shoul dbe able to reduce the size of the file view in the pop up window that the attachment opens in.

    When you select an attachment in the email a window pops up to preview. If the file font is too large there is no way to reduce the size of the file and you have to download it and adjust it.

    This is unnecessary and should be an option in the preview to increase and reduce the view size to fit in the preview window.

  17. Suggest refactoring the entire Office 365 Suite. Bloated &slow w/ many functions that are counter productive to even simple tasks

    Too numerous issues to list that would not be taken into consideration by MS designers even if the time was invested to list them all.

  19. Fix Row misalignment

    Worksheet rows become misaligned, such that one or more columns shift up or down, making the row data inaccurate. No clear cause when this happens. Have to close and reopen the file to correct it. Unfortunately we cannot always tell when this has happened so that we then edit to correct data but it’s really for a different row. Happens on both PC and MAC. Very dangerous for our data!!!!!!!

  20. Get your **** together. - thats my idea.

    Your web-app version of office is laughable. Reminiscent of Google Hosted Services 10 years ago.

    Please, get it together. we rely on these applications and the collaboration capabilities.
