Office 364.5 Word cloud glitch



  • So I asked to save my new Microsoft Office 365 Word document. Word immediately asked me to give my account for the cloud.

    :wtf: It should know that; I'm logged into the domain. Not only that, but I don't want to save my document on the cloud anyway, I want to save it on the shared drive. Sigh.

    So, naturally, I immediately typo my account name. (Sigh.) I am also a :wtf: I guess.

    It is important to note at this point that Word presented a dialog specifically to ask for the account--and only the account. When I clicked next, after typoing the account, it presented a second dialog to ask me for the password, which I gave. Wrong, "Sorry, can't find your credentials."

    It is at this point that I see the typo, so I want to fix it. No can do: that field is locked on this dialog. No "back" button, either. Aren't products that don't offer an opportunity to correct typos wonderful?

    Sigh.

    Click "cancel". Immediate response: "Sorry, we can't sign you on, another account is already active on this computer."

    :wtf:? Isn't this something you would normally check before asking someone to sign in?



  • WTF1: Posting all that without screenshots. In the "Error'd" section.

    WTF2: Microsoft & Office 365. I already hate Office 365 and I only have a corporate email account, none of the other cruft.



  • @OP: you are imperfect in the perfect world of MS. You must be eliminated. Perfect testers at microsoft never typoed, it cannot happen in the perfect cloud world. You do not exist.

    Previously, it would have been a feature.



  • Jeff'd to a more appropriate category.


  • mod

    I don't think it counts as Jeff'ing if you move an entire thread



  • Would not reproduce for screen shots.

    Well, according to the Discopædia, to jeff is to "move posts around unnecessarily". It could be argued that moving a topic to another category is a form of jeffing.

    Ever tried using Office 365 with Sharepoint? That's how the next world war will start.

    PS: You can bypass enforcing meta data on file uploads with drag & drop in Sharepoint. I've had a productive morning.
