  1. Inverse of filter selection

    I like the fact you can select multiple items in a filter, but sometimes I want to see one selection of items first, then see the remainder after. I'd like an "inverse filter" option to untick all the ticked items and tick all the blanks so I can view the remaining items.

  2. Allow Tables to be deleted

    Right now "the header and insert rows cannot be deleted" is the response you get when trying to delete tables. There seems to be no way of deleting them currently.

  4. Maintain filter preferences (sort order) by including all columns

    As currently implemented, the 'Sort & Filter' (say: Sort Newest to Oldest) on a single column does not prompt the user to also sort the rest of the spreadsheet ('Expand the selection' to include all other adjacent columns) to maintain the integrity of the spreadsheet as the Excel for desktop application does.
    So data edited in Excel for the web can get easily corrupted (especially since changes are saved automatically without user input).

  6. Is there a limit of entries in filter option on the online version?

    In the Excel online version, I noticed that when data exeeds 1000 entries, the filter shows a warning message "NOT ALL ITEMS SHOWING".
    May MS expand this limit

  13. Ribbon Actions

    It would be nice if there was a button on the ribbon, to easily move selected columns left and right.

  16. At the moment I filter, it should show the quantity of cases that are the results of the filter.

    As in the Full Version of Excel, at the moment you apply different filters, there should be a number in the bar that shows the quantity of the cases that comply with the specifications of the filter (s).

  18. Show total rows count at least when filters are active

    Frequently I want to know how many rows (or columns on occasion) are in a sheet. It would be nice to have a running total visible somewhere on the screen. Especially when I'm applying or removing filters.

    I've been in countless meetings where people are either counting rows by hand, scrolling endlessly, or copy pasting filtered rows into a temporary sheet just to get this information.
