  2. Range Objects for Flow (implement Range.CurrentRegion)

    Only being able to use data that is in a table, or having to create a table in order to use that data, is incredibly restrictive and frustrating.

    If we HAVE to use tables for Flow, then we really need a way to dynamically determine the range in order to create those tables.

    Ideally, we could just use a JSON object instead that mimicked how Range objects function in VBA.

  5. Text of Comment in E-mail

    In the notification e-mail when a user is tagged in a comment, it would be helpful to include the text of the comment.

  6. Comments Filter for Mentions

    In the Comments pane, it would be helpful to have the ability to filter down to comments in which you are mentioned. Without this, it's difficult in a document with a lot of comments to find the ones you need to respond to.

  8. How to test compatibility with Excel Online?

    I'm getting the "Unsupported Features There are some features in your workbook that we can't show in the browser" message suddenly when trying to open our file in Excel Online.... Nobody has added any of those features to the file, and I can't seem to figure out how to check any of those compatibility issues :( Our whole project is locked up until we can solve this... Please advise ASAP

  9. More details in notification emails

    In addition to user name, it would be helpful if notification emails included the specific changes that were made to a file.

  10. Option to hide the Toolsbar in Excel Online while screenshare.

    Please add an Option to hide the Toolsbar in Excel Online while screenshare session. The content is really very small during the screenshare where the toolsbar occupies most of the screen.

  11. Import Excel table as an image to documents and presentations

    Make sure that when you want to copy an area of an Excel file, you can paste it into i.e. PowerPoint as an image. Currently, it only works from the desktop app of Excel, making the process longer, when starting with a shared file via SharePoint, or through other online Excel apps.

  12. Create an "Edit Only" share feature separate from "Edit and Share" or "Admin" share role

    The way it is set up now, when you give someone edit access, they can then share the spreadsheet with others as if they are the admin. There should be more sharing access right roles like google. Edit Only should not allow someone share with other, but you should be able to create a spreadsheet or document that you can give someone Edit and Share right to or Admin rights to. Then those admins should be able to add people but they should never be able to delete the owner off. The owner should have right to reassign ownership of…

  13. Have a column to auto-populate "last modified" date for a row

    We don't always have all our data upfront and have to fill in the missing pieces over time. There are several people making changes but we don't know when or what. A column could have a "last modified" auto-populated when any change to a row is made, then we'd know which row to gather info from.

  14. Add Owner for specific file

    Its better to have an option to add an owner for a specific file. Because if the main owner is not online, the other people has the link, cannot open the file to modify it.

  15. When collaborating, to give the option for the system to open a shared link either using it online or on the PC. All features not online

    When sharing links to collaborate, to give the option for the system to open a shared link either using your PC or online, just because all features do not work online. Right now when you click on a link, it automatically opens the file it the online version.

  17. Saving a shared document on Office 365 online.

    If a file of a previous version of Office 365 shared document, cannot be opened because it says that it does not support features like Scenario manager, then one should be warned when saving such file, or it should be adjusted to accept such features. Or fix so it can accept the features.
