Widening the Online Word task view

When adding an online Word task, the view on the site is very small. In order to see the whole content of the document one has to shrink the view into 50 %. Thus, with a small screen e.g on laptop, online word documents are impractical to use. 
My idea is to widen the view so, that it would be easier to examine the whole document in an easier manner.

    “The near future” is approaching 😊 and if everything goes as planned a full screen mode for Office Online will be in the next release (17/3). Files that can be viewed or edited in Office Online, will then have the option to be opened in a fullscreen view.

    We’re almost done, only testing end a bit of tweaking remains. Always hard to estimate dates, and I prefer to rather be safe than sorry 😉 so I’ll stick to what I wrote in January: “in the near future” 😊

    Hello,

    Could you please give us delays about this deliverable.

    Currently, Office on line across across It's Learning is not usable...

    Hi, I’m happy to tell you that we’re working on a full screen mode for Office Online :-). We’re currently in the design phase, so it’s a bit early to say when we’ll have it ready for release – but it should be safe to say that it’s in the near future.

    And Excel too, of course!

    Hi, we've already provided a better user experience for viewing resources in the student plan viewer. We've would like to extend this work to other parts of the platform by making it possible to edit resources in full screen.

    No doubt that Office Online would benefit from a full screen mode, but we will not manage to develop support for this before back to school this year. We’re always listening to, and evaluating user feedback, and a full screen mode for Office Online is absolutely on our radar.

    Please note that Office Online (i.e. the possibility to create office documents inside itslearning without having an office account or license) is still in it's pilot phase. We're planning on ending the pilot in a few weeks, and then all customers will have the option of turning it on for their users.

    Absolutely necessary for acceptance in every day use.
