  1. Medical Charting Templates

    Excel Templates are great places to start, especially since formatting is extremely helpful but also time-consuming. Given COVID-19 and the importance of the medical industry, I'm surprised there aren't more medical-related Excel Templates. I am aware that there are TONS of medical charting software out there that take in data - my husband is a nurse (his 2nd degree) while his 1st degree was in computer programming. So he's very aware of software and its capabilities. But sometimes, you just want a quick printable chart. Something you can color-code for easy, fast viewing since hospital nurses are typically running to…

  3. Access to desktop versions of 365 apps

    Microsoft have told me that you will deliver me an explanation of the following issue. I have 365 running on my new laptop and ever since I started using it I accessed Outlook on the desktop via the 365 icon on the bar at the bottom of the screen. This morning for the first time it took me into the web version of the app. I want to know why it changed overnight please. Microsoft were unable to provide any explanation other to say that this feature was now working as they expected. They could not provide any rationale for…

  13. Clear All - Doesn't Clear All

    How about making "Clear All" actually do what it says? Or change the name to "Clear Just About Everything Except Objects".

    It is just so fitting that "Clear All" doesn't clear all. That's very Microsoft of you.

  15. Be able to integrate your microsoft calendar so you can create a custom journal or daytimer.

    I am looking for a solution where I can integrate my life vision, monthly vision and so on in a calendar. I want something where I can have my Microsoft calendar as well as somewhere to integrate notes, links, plans, visions and so on.

    If one could integrate their calendar into Microsoft and even be able to link to emails within excel, it would be great. My vision is a one note - Microsoft outlook combination with excel capabilities.

  16. From Excel + Powerpoint > to Glideapps + Bubble

    Glideapps enables Google Sheet users to build prototype apps in minutes.
    Why not Microsoft with more possibilities?


    • Excel working as a database (cf. G-Sheet & Glideapps)

    • Powerpoint enabling to modify ones page design by dragging&dropping

    This would be the ultimate No-code solution (a multi billions dollars market in the next years)... but it's probably a dream...

  17. Add tags / notes to specific versions (milestones) in each file history

    It'd be great if one could "tag" specific versions (milestones) within each file history (this change would apply to every file on SharePoint / OneDrive).

    As it is now, I truly love the auto-save & file history function, but sometimes it's very difficult to figure out to find the version I'm looking for, end up losing time opening many of them.

    If one could go anytime and add a custom tag/note to specific versions in order to indicate a brief description ("before change", "after change"), the automated file history would be much more useful to me.

  18. 「新しいウィンドウを開く」コマンドでウィンドウが2つ以上ある時のバグ

    バグのフロー
    NO1.「BOOK1.xlsx」を開く
    NO2.「新しいウィンドウを開く」を実行し、「BOOK1.xlsx」のウィンドウが2個の状態にする
    NO3.ウィンドウ1のsheet1とウィンドウ2のsheet2でコピーや貼付けを相互に不定期に行う
    NO4.不定期に行っている最中に「NO3」にてコピーや貼付けしたことのあるセルデータなのに急に「クリップボードに問題があります」と表示される
    NO5.そのエラーには「OK」という選択ししかなく「OK」を押す(ALT+F4で強制的にエラーウィンドウを消しても、その後の動作は同じ)
    NO6.今回のコピー範囲や貼付け範囲と関係のない、セルの値が勝手に結構前の操作の状態に戻される ※1
    NO7.「NO4」の「クリップボードに問題があります」と表示から「NO6」が複数回繰り返される(3~8回程度)

    ※1 勝手に結構前の操作の状態に戻されたセルを関数にて参照している数式セルは「勝手に結構前の操作の状態に戻された状態の値」ではなく「勝手に結構前の操作の状態に戻される前の値」を参照しセルは表示されています

    ファイルが約500kb以上でこのバグが起こりやすく、サイズが大きければ大きいほどバグの発生頻度が高いです。
    全て覚えていないのですが、直近だと、数式のみ貼付けで発生しました。
    「クリップボードに問題があります」以外のエラーウィンドウは出ない。
    バグが発生するファイルは同一ファイルではない。
    ウィンドウが2つ以上で発生というのは正確ではなく、ウィンドウが2つ以上という条件で発生するのではなく、単純にファイルが重いと発生している可能性もある。
    ただ、僕が発生時の状態を思い出した時にウィンドウが2つ以上あったような気がしたという、不明確な感じです。
