  1. Maintain hidden rows/columns in "sheet view" so other users are not affected by the change

    Sheets view offers a private view of the Excel sheet when sorted or filtered, another common change is hiding rows/columns but that currently affects all users when sharing document.

    Allow for row/column views to remain private in Sheet View so others are not affects.

  2. 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…

  4. Power Query: Make it easier to connect to files on OneDrive and SharePoint

    Connecting to Excel files stored on OneDrive and SharePoint is a difficult and confusing experience. While it is possible, it is far too difficult.

    As more and more move to working in an online environment we need a simple way of connecting.

  5. Define named ranges.

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

  8. Add Office Scripts to the native Excel Application

    I understand getting full blown VBA working on the web is extremely unlikely (impossible?).

    So - make Office Scripts run on native Excel (and other Office apps). That way we get

    1) One common development language across all Microsoft Office applications

    2) Support for Javascript/Typescript in native Office.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Office native platforms already supports JavaScript/TypeScript for the add-in (extensions) model. The built-in Office Scripts/automation is not yet supported.

    We do intend to support Office Scripts across other platforms and hosts. However, the priority and schedules for such expansion in coverage is not yet finalized. We are right now focussed on delivering it for Online platform with Power Automation support. Please stay tuned for future announcements to learn about the coverage.

    Thanks,
    Sudhi

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  18. Default print option settings feature

    Currently, with Officee365 it is impossible to set default print settings to Letter or any other size. it is also impossible to set the default scaling of the printed output. If you need to print the document several times due to minor changes, you have to manually set the paper size and scaling each and every time. This is a huge time waster and should be implemented asap.

  20. Enable retention of file type when downloading from Excel on the web

    Whenever a .csv file is shared from OneDrive or SharePoint and opened via Excel Web App, it automatically converts it to an .xlsx file.

    I want to be able to download the file and retain its original format as .csv and not as an .xlsx file.
