  2. It is useless... just get ride of it. It is good for nothing.

    Why you don't make something like a mini excel and discontinue the existing version? It is good for nothing.

  3. When timing out allow the user to download the file.

    When you timeout it should allow access to the file on the cloud drive and ability to download.

  5. Open in Microsoft Excel

    It would be nice if when in Teams and click on "open in Microsoft Excel" that it would then actually open in Microsoft Excel. Very frustrating...

  6. check boxes

    Office 365 does not have the simple ability to add check boxes which is needed for 80% of our paperwork. Make excel functions the same on the web browser.

  7. Criteria for hiding tab error is too broad

    There is an error message in place to prevent hiding every tab that displays this message:

    "The workbook must contain at least one visible worksheet.
    To hide, delete, or duplicate the selected sheet(s), you must first insert a new sheet or unhide a sheet that is already hidden."

    This error also comes up when there is only one tab open and you select unhide.
    The only way around this is to open a new tab to unhide the other tabs. I would suggest reviewing the criteria for this error message so that it is not triggered with unhide.
    Thank you.

  14. Improved synchronization of MS Office apps between online and desktop versions

    Files often become out of sync even when opened by one person.

    I have a file that is said to be locked by myself when I have sved and closed all desktop and online versions.

    Results in wasted productive time and extra files and memory usage when a new file must be created to replace the file that is "stuck".

    Better editing of files online might eliminate the need to download onto desktop (e.g. graphic files do not render the same online as on desktop)

  20. How about when I download the Excel file you make don't have the spreadsheet appear upside-down and in a mirror image. It would be much mor

    Excel files shouldn't open upside down and mirror image! Crazy idea, I know. But I'm not dyslexic enough to work on mirror image spreadsheets - just not a talent of mine!

    Also - how about a Save As function that would save the document? I know you have better ideas than I do about what to do with my documents, but please just let me be me!

    Overall rating of Office 365 at this point is 0 stars out of 5. You people are failing. Completely.
