  1. Enable and Disable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop Excel ONLINE

    Please make an option like in Desktop Excel, that allows to enable or disable drag-and-drop cells.
    ONLINE excel ir great for sharing one document with many people, but many times it can get annoying if someone by accident dragged the cell to other and one or both of the cells was used in formulas. Even with Password protection this dragging is possible, so it`s not an option to prevent that.

  5. Teams does not allow you to use the notes feature in excel

    Notes are much better than comments in excel and you don't let us add notes when working on excel in Teams. Accountants use spreadsheets year after year and the notes feature is key to documenting what is in the cell. Comments doesn't do the job.

  6. Find and replace should have the option to modify the color of the text and fill again

    I used to be able to use the find and replace all tool to quickly make changes to not only the data in multiple cells, but also the color of the text and fill color. Now I have to manually change every cell to do so, which is time consuming and irritating!

  7. Excel in Teams text alignment

    Allow for vertical text alignment when veiwing Excel Docs in Teams. Currently if having a table/list using vertical text in an Excel it moves the text and makes the column unreadable.

  10. unlock sheets

    It's very important and necessary to be able to "unlock" sheet in the site of Excel 365 in line, because the lack of this option make the user the mandatory the necessity of have Excel.app installed in the hardware, so because of this the fully potential of the "on line" services are not so functional and not allowd us to become in a "fully movil collaborator" to our companyes

  11. Pause edit of a calculation

    Often when one is editing complex formulae in a cell it becomes necessary part way to leave that cell and double check some of the input cells. This is not currently possible without 'cancelling' that change and losing any progress, prefixing it with ' or 'entering' the change. ' or entering the change has other impacts, e.g. #value forcing a column width adjustment.

    By adding a pause calc option, this would allow one to 'step out' of the editing process but keeping that cell in a limbo stage (identifiable in the Evaluate formula) based on the cell's last entered value…

  13. Highlight keywords in spellcheck

    Please add the feature to show highlighted words when conducting spellcheck in Excel. The entire spellcheck feature needs to be updated to Word standards, as Excel is being used for this in the business world.

  15. Disable copy/cut/paste function for unlocked cells

    Where most of the sheet is locked and protected have an option to disable copy/cut/paste function for the unlocked cells without using VBA since we are opening the file online.

  16. Correct a support site.

    I followed the directions at https://support.microsoft.com/en-ie/office/locate-and-reset-the-last-cell-on-a-worksheet-c9e468a8-0fc3-4f69-8038-b3c1d86e99e9 to eliminate blank cells in locating the last cell in the worksheet with cntrl+end. The directions did not work. I am working in Office 365. If anyone has any suggestions for correcting this issue, please post. Thanks!

  17. Make it possible to convert line breaks in replacement tool

    For example, I need to convert "VALUE1+VALUE2+VALUE3" into:
    VALUE1
    VALUE2
    VALUE3

    But this is possible only on a local Excel version. On Excel online I can't done it, because of not working Ctrl+J. I'm able to do it only mechanically like moving through each value and pushing Alt+Enter

  18. More fill colours in online excel. The current options are very limited.

    More options for fill colour, or at least have the option of 'more fill colours' like in the online powerpoint version. Excel use requires colours at a lot of the time

  19. Don't autofill the "Hyperlink" field to include "http://"

    The "http://" text in the hyperlink field always has to be manually deleted when copying + pasting links into cells in a worksheet otherwise the link will appear with "http://https://[link]" and the link won't work properly.

  20. All functionality available

    The option to update documents within a team is great but the limitations of all excel functions unavailable cause me to make copies and re-save new files because I cant update them the way I need to in Teams. Would love to stay within Teams!
