  1. 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

  8. 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.

  9. To be able to clear Al workbooks previously open or edited

    It would be amazing if we could clear all recents from excel. There so much data there that is utterly useless after I have seen/edited the file.

    Beeing able to select all, or one by one would be a plus!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…
