  2. Excel Online is not user friendly when removing table formatting.

    There should be a fix for that rather than an error message. Example, a way to extend the current table or a way to remove the existing table formatting in order to create a new table.

  4. Move Data in tables to create gaps

    I would like to be able to add information in between two sets of data. By dragging the information down. But the error says I cannot shift the cells down due to it interfering with the table. Can this be adjusted?

  5. When using filtert, the drop down menu does not show the possible selection in the column. The offline version has this capability

    Filter in offline version automatically generate the option in the drop down menu. But the online version does not support it. Please add it!

  6. We need to be able to select non-consecutive cells/ rows in Excel Online

    Why would you not build this feature into Excel Online in the first place?

  8. Make Removing Table formatted cells easier

    Allow for removal of table formatting in sheets where the target table was copied to. When a table is copied from another sheet, "Clear Format" does not seem to remove the underlying formatting object. This makes it difficult to change the format area of the existing table, or clear out the color scheme and other table type encoding within the sheet.

  9. Quick pick filtering

    Desktop excel has the unique set of values as a tickable list when you click the drop down on a table column. This is very useful, and a real timesave compared to using the "contains" etc options in the filter context menus.

  11. Add the rightclick worksheet search

    In the offline version of Excell you can right click at the bottom right corner of the tab navigation line and a list of all your worksheets will pop up and you can scroll through them. In the online version you don't have that feature and it's the reason I still use the offline version for work
