      • I need to be able to open a password protected document on Windows Phone

        I keep several password protected documents on SkyDrive which is very handy. Recently, I bought a Windows Phone and found that it cannot open password protected files, rats. This would make WP much more useful.

          • Uyghur!

            Since windows has Uyghur language support, it would be great if windows phone also had support for Uyghur . There are millions of people in china speaking Uyghur. So we need Uyghur keyboard for searching on the web ,sending text message, replying email etc.Please add Uyghur keyboard for WP8.

              • add undo to one note + office apps

                Would be useful to have undo considering there's no way to cancel a change in a doc and content is automatically saved

                          • Option to pin "New Page" function for OneNote in WP8 (already exists in 7)

                            I would like the feature that was in WP7 to pin a shortcut that creates a new new page/note in OneNote added back to WP8.

                            If one note is genuinely to be the One Noteboook then it needs to be trivially easy to create a new note (as is possible with a single click of a tray icon on the desktop and as was possible on my WP7) - a pinned deep link to a new page provides this capability

                              I would like to use WP7 as a business phone, but while .csv file format is not supported, that is not possible. Please fix this.

                                • Please allow excel support csv files in phone 8

                                  I have seen a number of people asking for phone 7 to support csv files. I now have a Lumia 920 and love it but as part of my work I receive regular csv formatted reports via email, unfortunately I cannot open them on my phone. I thought having mobile office I would be ok but it seems I can't open it in any app. Even when searching the App Store when trying to open it nothing found. Come on Microsoft at least get excel working with csv files.
