  3. Stop development of online version

    Never try or offert to open a file in the online Office version (all programs), as one can principally not all, even important functions, it is opened in the wrong setup (language, dimensions,...). My proposal would be to stop these activities as I do not know one user who likes it

  4. Unable to copy paste data, pls. rectify this error in O365

    I can't copy-paste the data from one row with few columns within the same worksheet even, it pops up the error message "we're sorry but we ran into a problem while you were working"

    My file is about 30MB which located in teams SharePoint and error is in both O365 online also when opened in desktop version.

    So I have to limit copy-paste to one row with 2 or 3 columns data at a time. If it is more than 3 columns this error pops up.

  5. Create freeze upto "n" number of rows & columns

    Allow users to freeze rows & columns at the same time. It is possible only if you insert the same freezed row again but not as an option.

  7. Provide "pop out" for editing documents.

    Just as "pop out" has recently been provided for chat, ie. a separate window, provide "pop out" for editing documents. It is completely frustrating having to close a document to read a chat or check another document within Teams then retrace steps to re-edit. Just comparing or conferring two documents requires one be opened using a Desktop App. This blocks other users from making changes.

  10. customize keyboard binding

    Allow for customization of keyboard binding. I want to be able to set the keyboard shortcuts to whatever key I want instead of being forced to use defaults.

  13. Allow us to see user name editing the file

    Allow us to see who is editing the workbook instead of just mentioning 'someone' so we can contact that someone if need.

  15. Please provide editing option if some one else is also working on the file. It will save more time.

  18. Eliminate prompts after opening an Excel file (with Excel) from Teams.

    Eliminate prompts after opening an Excel file (with Excel) from Teams. Opening a file from Teams used to just open the file for editing in the desktop app. Now there's an extra prompt every time. It's unnecessary and unwelcome.

  20. Identify who has opened a workbook, when it's locked for editing as a result

    When a shared workbook is locked because someone else has opened it, make it clear who has it open, so that the person wishing to edit it can liaise with them directly to ask them to close it.
