  1. Filter views

    When using Google Sheets to collaborate there is a filter view that allows you to set a filter view that only you see. This is very helpful when multiple people are in a file and you don't want to mess with the view everyone else is in. Something similar would make online excel much more user friendly.

  2. Make Charts More Changeable for Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Excel Online Users.

    You should let people type in the range of their chart. For example, if I'm doing a statistics project and I want to know how many desserts people eat in a week, and my range is zero to ten, then Excel usually does it one to eleven. You need to change that so that we Excel users can do our own charts online and not have to do them by hand on boring old paper. You catching my drift, here? Okay, good then.

  10. Hide ribbon bar in Excel online

    Please allow to hide the ribbon bar in Excel Online.

    It is important to be able to prevent user from messing around with the sheet structure and even make the sheet not usable. It would be even better if only the owner can turn this feature on and off.

    Also, when user is using iPad, the ribbon bar takes up too much screen room

  12. Remove the "Download" option which strips content

    Currently Excel online has options for "Edit Online", "Edit in Browser", "Save a Copy", AND "Download".
    What is the purpose of the last option outside of the bad functionality that this option strips out some of the more advanced content in your file?
    Please just remove this "Download" option, as "Edit in Excel" and "Save a Copy" should be sufficient for all purposes.

  13. Comments, changes & sizing on the online version vs. desktop spreadsheet


    1. COMMENTS....if a comment is too long in a cell then it converts to #### on both the online sheet and the one on the pc too. I put a comment in a cell, NOT using the comment function and I lost it, it became hashtags ### on both. The comments on the online should duplicate the desktop, when you go to a comment in a cell and click on it, a pop up with ALL the comments pulls up on the right side, I don't and didn't want to see ALL, just one. Wish when you right click on a…

  16. Make the keyboard shortcuts the same between Excel and Excel online.

    In Excel hitting Ctrl Y on the keyboard is the command you can use to create multiple new lines in a spreadsheet. In Excel online the Ctrl Y combination means "redo" Making commands like this between the two would be helpful.
