  1. Excel Desktop vs Excel Online - online version should have all/most of the same features

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Paste/Formatting - When pasting into the online version, the format doesn't stay.

    ~ Sorting - There are very limited sorting options in the online version.

    ~ Copying data. I have about 300 lines of data that's about 10 columns wide and am unable to copy it so that I can paste it into another document and sort it the way I need (since online version has limited options for sorting, as mentioned…

    Pour excel online en France, prévoir l'utilisation du séparateur de décimal "," à partir du clavier numérique (à ce jour, c'est un point et la saisie est considérée comme du texte)

  4. Excel Online - Filters and capacity

    Excel online doesn't allow users to filter without filtering the document for all rest of users. This is a key feature for shared documents so every user can filter and modify only the desire information without having to scroll or search.
    Also Excel online currently doesn't handle medium/big files. Files with 2.700 KB take long time to open and don't work well.

  5. It doesn't have all functionality as desktop excel. Make Online excel = Desktop excel

    Data formatting could be made as easy as in Desktop excel. As we are very much used to mouse it will be better to have those functionality to copy paste & other functions. In simple words make Online version = Desktop version.

  6. Be able to open excel files online even if it is with unsupported feature.


    • Should let us know which particular thing that sets off the unsupported prompt

    • Even if there are unsupported features inside the file we should be able to open the file ignoring the unsupported or opening it by creating a copy without the unsupported feature

  7. Examine copy and paste function within the browser version of Office 365 Excel

    Copy and paste function is so hit or miss in Office 365 Excel.

    For example, formatting of tables is completely lost even when I'm copying and pasting from one tab of Office 365 Excel to another.

  8. Edit history for individual cells

    I would like to see edit history for individual cells. Google sheets has this option and it has proven invaluable so I would like to see it available in Excel Online

    Add ability to define named ranges on the web. Excel is useless to me without this. :-(

  12. PivotTables created with Power BI using Analyze In Excel should work after publishing to Power BI

    Power BI's Analyze in Excel functionality allows Excel users on the desktop to create reports using PivotTables and cube formulas connected to a published Power BI dataset. However (and this is very hard to explain to customers) these reports only work on the desktop: even though Power BI allows you to publish Excel workbooks to an App Workspace, reports created using Analyze In Excel do not work after they have been published to Power BI because Excel Online does not support connections to Power BI. Please fix this!

  13. Bring back Editing other users comments in Exchange Online

    The recent Exchange online updates appears to have removed editting capability for comments made by other users on the excel online.

    Such functions is necessary specially for users utilizing online only Excel.

  15. Excel Online - sheet print area

    Excel Online - Set Print Area - would be nice to be able to set a print area that can be saved, so that when others use the document, it will print the same way without having to redo all the settings.

  16. Excel online should have Filter View functionality like Google Drive

    Without Filter View, collaborators are constantly seeing their view change as other collaborators filter on their work. This makes what could be a much needed file unusable for more than 2-3 users. In our team of 20+, users have to save local copies to even work with the file. At that point, there isn't much value and its more of a headache than anything. Private filter views where collaborator can work on the document without other users impeding their progress is absolutely necessary

  17. Multi user filtering without changing view of other users

    Generate the ability for multiple users to edit documents in Excel online and application where the users can filter for their screen only. This would allow for greater collaboration as multiple pieces of a project can be worked on in the same document without each users view being altered by one users filter.

  19. Filter Views (collaborative work), zoom and freeze panes

    Hi,
    As much as I love using Excel Desktop version, online version is not that easy to use.
    Few ideas (for on-line I prefer using google only because it have features very easy to use):
    1. Filter Views - addressing the need of multiple people working in the same time, in the same spreadsheet but each on it's own view without bothering other folks


    1. Freeze panes - would be easier just to "drag" a line (as is with Google) and freeze whatever rows, columns etc.


    2. Rearrange the order of the column and rows - again referring to Google Drive where…
