  2. All the functionality available in desktop version if not supported yet by online version, why not be given option to active it?

    While someone use shared data available in MS-Onedrive using MS-Excel Office 365, and got the error message for any function that is not supported yet in online version, if given a chance to switch to the desktop version, such an approach will make the team work could be easier working together while using the data where is stored in MS-OneDrive.

    I opened this workbook normally a few minutes ago. So I closed my Mozilla Firefox and opened it again. This time, excel showed this error

  7. Autosave to sharepoint doesn't always work. It forces one to save on desktop even though enable saving on sharepoint is enabled

    autosave to sharepoint should always work. there are instances when it doesn't allow one to save to sharepoint (the button is greyed out).

  10. Have a rating for file performance

    Have a file performance index to allow to fix potential issues and avoid repetitive Excel crashing.

    Example: if file is crashing, we can work on hard drive, or if formulas or formatting too complex and slow things down, it is good to know it so we can do something about it.

  18. Get rid of it. You lose all functionality and print settings. It should not be a default setting and only made an option is required.

  19. Can't open workbook on Web message due to external links: Have a visual in excel web for unsupported features

    I would like to see excel web have either red text or a visual message indicating that a feature is blocked.

    Examples:
    1. If a chart visual isn't supported than have a little grey square that says "Excel web don't support X kind of chart. Click here to view it in excel desktop"
    2. if a certain cell query isn't supported than maybe have it highlighted with Red text.
