  1. Can we have a VLK license that works with click-to-run Office.

    I ask that you look into having a VLK license that works with click-to-run Office. I am sure I am not the only organization that has a mix of computers that have Office 365 licensed users and some that require VLK licensed users.It is a lot of work to have two different copies of office, one installed on your user machines and one installed on your kiosk machines.There is no reason that the click-to-run product should not respond to a VLK key and then act as a VLK product. We have the click-to-run on our Golden image because most of…

  4. Provide a way to sign in to Office 365 within each app. Or at least give instructions for how to do so. Did anyone test this work flow???

  7. I am in Mexico. When I go to office365.com/en it takes me to the Spanish Page. I don't understand why.

    Recognize the language of the computer and naturally put them in that language.

  8. Off-line Help

    Excel Help should be configured like the Windows O/S. The basic Help package should loaded when Excel is installed. Help updates should be applied (as available) as the user connects to the Internet. This would allow users to operate in an off-line environment - as many of us still do, and still have access to Excel Help functions.

  10. Rows to repeat at top of page (headings)

    This used to be a thing in Excel. In Page Setup you could specify rows to repeat on each page (top/bottom/side) for things like column headings.

  11. Microsoft Office - Family License

    The current strategy of Microsoft is to sell either office 365 (yearly subscription) or single permanent license products. This I discovered only today after purchasing a new laptop for the family and tried to get my recently purchased office installed on the new PC. It would not let me do this (even under the same user account) , since I have my recently purchased office on my other PC.

    I feel this strategy is very unfriendly toward family consumers, as I have to sepdn 150 EUR for each PC to install office on it and allow all members of my…

  15. Correction to the Office 2016 instulation process

    When you install office 2016 on a new pc it does not install MSORUN.DLL. This affects users that have Office VBA application. The office 2007 installation installed MSORUN.DLL and there is no work around that I can fine in Office 2016.

    One can copy this file from a PC with 2007 and the VBA applications will work, but there is not way most users wold know this

  19. I am not connected to internet. To "validate" my programme means every month walking down the road to connect for this ****! ****HEADS!

    Every month or so I get thiis "Cannot validate programme - connect to internet." This is ****! I have to walk lugging my computer down the road just to "Validate" the programme. This is ****. I should not have to validate my progamme. The ***KING subscrition expiry daty should be logged into the programme when I renew it, and it should be right until that date comes around. NOT EVERYONE IS ON THE INTERNET 24/7. I have two machines, one at home and one I take out. What do people do who have a PC....MORONS!

  20. Disable pdf Hyperlink Warnings For Office 2016 programs

    I have a macro that opens a hyperlink from a sheet and then downloads the file associated with that hyperlink. However, if the hyperlink is to a pdf file, I get a security warning message asking me if I would like to open the file. This negates the automatic process of the macro.

    I've contacted support and they have stated that in Excel 2016 it is not possible to disable this warning message for a pdf file (however it is for other file types). I would like this feature added back in to Excel.

    The community link further describing the…
