  1. Profile tab, switch from one account to another as ez as outlook!

    I’ll tell you in 1 word. Most people with multiple email accounts, need the same amount of ez access to save to the particular account. So it’s not just a suggestion, it’s a need & a must!

    Currently if I have a attachment in outlook, or even in the app it self, I have to sign out to be able to save to a different account, otherwise all my attachments are saved to 1 Microsoft account, when it’s really associated with the other email & Microsoft account.

    Multiple email accounts are usually created for different tasks at hand, and the…

  3. Ensure Excel and Word can open embedded word documents

    Many businesses are moving to iPads instead of laptops. Most meeting agendas that are sent out tend to have embedded documents linking to the agenda points. Currently it is impossible to open embedded documents on word for iPad, which renders iPads useless in these meetings. Please ensure that this is available in the next version of Word for iPad

  4. Multitasking - mehrere Fenster in Excel in iPadOS

    Es wäre gut, wenn man in Excel in iPadOS - wie auch in Word und PowerPoint - mehrere Fenster und 2 Excel-Arbeitsmappen nebeneinander in Split View öffnen könnte.

  6. When saving or retrieving files, you can see third party file services like Dropbox, OneDrive, but cannot see iCloud.

    If I need to access iCloud, it is a two step process. I have to click on My iPad and then click on iCloud. I do not see why you let users see Dropbox and OneDrive and other services, and not iCloud.

  10. Link OneDrive and Excel for file access

    When I go to an Excel file in OneDrive I can view but if I click the Excel icon and I’m not connected to an internet connection the file will not open even though the files are saved to my iPad and Excel is installed on my iPad the file cannot be opened offline? This makes no sense to me?

  12. Setting to turn off the auto open last file on excel iPhone app

    It should be a Setting to turn off the auto open last file on excel iPhone app. When I open the app, it often gets stuck on trying to open a file and then trying to cancel opening a file for almost 30 seconds. If I am trying to open another file this means there is a minute delay before I can even start to try to open that file. It should be a setting to turn off the auto open last workbook feature so I can open the app, choose the file I want to open and then use…

  17. Zoom Level on Open Workbook on iOS

    With a Workbook on OneDrive and edited on both macOS and iOS (iPad & iPhone), opening the Workbook on iPad sets a ludicrous zoom level - far too big.

    If you open a Workbook occasionally and work on it a lot then adjusting the zoom each time it's opened is not a big deal. But if you open a workbook every day or more often and just add a few values each time then every time adjusting the zoom level becomes a real nuisance (to the point where I've given up on Excel and moved to Apple apps - which…

  18. Let me sort the files by date for example when searching for a file

    Often I want to see the last few files that have been updated, let me sort by date. Even better and in addition let me expand the column with file names so I can see the whole file name.

  19. PLease allow us to open and save to a removable USB drive (flash or otherwise). I thought with the lastest update that would happen.

    Allow users with iPads to open and save from a removable USB drives. I always don’t have a good internet connection when traveling. I would really like the ability to open and save from a removable USB drive.

  20. Please add ownCloud support. It seems just about every cloud service is supported except the one we and our clients rely on.

    ownCloud support is desperately needed. Should have been there from day one. We avoid using Office apps because doing so blows up our workflows.
