Nice Product!

I have had Office since the early nineties. Every release Microsoft sends out gets better. Easy to navigate, find help on things and most importantly, solid functionality.

Excel stops while working

I use 'Street Smart Edge' to trade stocks on the stock market. I also use Excel to keep track of my trading. When I cut a trade from my stock page and Past it onto my sales page, Excel freezes and stops working. Street smart edge is connected to a Charles Schwab server and the interaction kills Excel.




Installing on iPhone and ipad

I purchased office 365, however i can't install it on my iPhone and ipad. I received from microsoft the links to install, nut they do not work. Please help.




This is my fifth year using it and I like it!

I am starting my 5th year of using Office, associated apps, and One Drive. I previously had the University edition, but chose to go a different direction when it was time for renewal. I have no negatives to bring up. It is what it is, and I don't expect 100% perfection or 100% satisfaction. I won't tolerate sub-standard products and apparently I don't consider this to fall in that category.




Flexibility in purchase stinks

The fact you cant buy a cd to use on multiple computers is bad. Furthermore, whenever I open Word it will not take me to my file list so I can open my files, but forces me to navigate through a load of garbage I don't want. Stick to the old program as long as possible.




Intermittent problems.

As soon as I renewed my subscription, I have had intermittent problems with automatic saving.

Great experience

Finally made the move to Office 365 - so good to have the latest versions of the software on my Mac, plus have anytime/anywhere access. A slight learning curve from Mac 2011 to 2016 versions, but overall I like it a lot. Cloud is where it's all going, so no issue with paying for a subscription - and when I decided after 2 weeks that I wanted to upgrade from Personal to Home, the support person was very helpful. There should have been an upgrade button on the MSFT website but that's another story!
