Features Removes

I was enjoying this app until features that were accessible were suddenly revoked because I didn’t have a 365 subscription. It is quite poor practise to have a feature available and then to remove it to gain money. The feature was initially free. The actual app doesn’t even have the full functionality of the desktop version, so charging for anything within this app is ludicrous.

Apart from that, it is a good application. In fact, when using the all the limited features it does have for simple documents, or to make quick edits, is superb. Just be wary that future “development” may result in the omission of basic function that is to be expected from a document program. This practise is not limited to Microsoft, but I thought Microsoft would be above this.

Charge for additional features, not basic ones.

Nightmare, genuinely idiotic

Avoid 365 if you possibly can. Have taken out an account which I cannot access. At all. Login & Password not recognised and dead-ends. I know the logins are right, they’re in 1Password. Reached out to MS “Support”. 45min in a circular & pointless chat. First point of content at “Support” is an Accounts & Billing contact, not Tech. So-called Tech Support didn’t do anything, just went round and round, didn’t seem to know what they were doing. Eventually referred me to Elevated Support. Great, I thought. But no, Elevated Support is not a fast track to a specialist fixer who knows what they’re doing. It’s just a link to a page in a chat where a previous customer five years ago details how to take out an Elevated job ticket which might eventually get attended to by a human. But get this. In order to take out said Elevated job ticket and get in the queue, the only way to do this is to take out a SECOND Microsoft 365 account in order to triage the first one that I can’t get into. What, then I end up with TWO accounts in which my credit card is trapped somewhere?! Furious about this. Am time poor freelancer who needs to update Office for work, and am literally hands tied can’t figure out what to do. AVOID this product unless you have absolutely no choice. Stupid interface that eats headhours. If I could give it zero stars and still lodge this review to warn you all, I would. Microsoft, if you’re reading (!) please reach out and HELP!

Consistent incompatibilities with iPad Keyboard

I purchased the new iPad Air 4, with keyboard folio, in order to take notes for my studies and have it synced with my iMac. This has not been as successful as I assumed it would be. The software regularly begins to lag, with typing delayed by seconds, sometimes each letter takes up to 3 seconds to appear. This is extremely inconvenient when taking notes, and typing out essays. This delay is not an issue on any other platform, even as I am typing now there is no issue, but when I return to Microsoft Word it is delayed.

After searching the internet to find solutions, of which I could find zero responses from Microsoft, the issue appears to have been ongoing for more than 5 years. Other user’s have suggested to “Reset Word” which clears all documents on the device. This works for a time, but the delay always returns. It is also not a viable solution, as to reset requires confirming that my documents have saved onto OneDrive, which requires me to check that I can access the documents on my iMac. When I am not at home, this is a risky choice to make, but it is almost impossible to type with the delay.

The Microsoft package is expensive, and this issue is not a small one. I would like this issue escalated. It appears many have tried, and failed, resorting to typing in the Apple notes app and later pasting and editing in Word. This is time consuming and not an effective resolution.
