no easy fix for unnessesary problem

I purchased 2 laptops to replace a dead work one and add one for home. I renewed the office 365 on my old laptop in March, it died two weeks later. When my new laptop came in I purchased (I thought) a new subscription for my new laptop. it loaded and worked fine. When the second laptop came in, I purchased another subscription (I thought, again!) It down loaded and won't open. Going through the Microsoft forum, I found out my new subscription purchases were automatically applied to my original subscription, extending it for another 2 years. I was told the only way to fix this was to remove Office 365 from all devices, cancel my subscriptions and start over. I cannot do that on my work computer, I use all day every day. No other options were offered by your tech support.




Please Unbundle it from Skype Subscription

Hello, Please, you guys needs to unbundle Skype subscription with this Office personal (or anything). I already have Office 365 from my organization. I just want to call my family abroad. Please separate the Skype subscription from this ****. I (we) aren't interested. Office 365 Personal is great but I gave it a 1 star because of the bundling with skype subscription. The bundling makes no sense at all. Thanks for your understanding.

Uninstalled this ****. Nothing worked. Microsoft can keep my money. Soon as I get the money I will be getting something other than Microsoft. I can't tell you my true feelings because I don't use that kind of language.

Indocumented feature in Microsoft repair?

After a Windows 10 upgrade my Office 2013 (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) no longer could save files. I used Microsoft's repair service and it erased my product code. Nothing in the instructions posted said it would do this. I could not quickly find my product disk from a few years ago so to stay in business I downloaded this software with essentially the same features as 2013 with the added benefit that I have to renew every year. Of course, now I am incentivized to find that old disk. The 2013 had a centralized file so that all the software in the suite were in one sub-file location, saving scrolling, the 2016 version scatters to individual launch points...




Wanted Office on my Mac as well as Windows laptops

I love word, also love my Mac, this makes it possible to have the best of all things.




Complicated products most don't want or need.

Had to renew so I could read mail and view word documents. Lot of money again to use a couple of basic features.




Hate the subscription model

All I really wanted was Outlook. When I got it, I found that it didn't do the things I wanted (such as a combined inbox). Returned for a refund within hours of purchase. Why is Outlook free as a mobile app or browser page, but an arm and a leg if you want the full version on your PC?





I renewed my subscription directly from the program and it still kept saying that my subscription had expired got in touch with tech support they were unable to fix the problem and didn't know why it was not work. Not happy about this at all!




Discount offered but not given

I bought a new laptop and I'm testing Office 365 free trial month. I received an email offering me 25% discount if I puchase the annual renewable package. But when I open that link and it gets to the payment part, all I get is an error message. Christo in South Africa





Great product and I'm happy with it!
