  3. Allow creation of a default "Sheet View"

    "Sheet View" is a great feature, but doesn't it require the user to remember to create the sheet view?

    The problem is that if I send an invite to 100 people to collaboratively edit an Excel spreadsheet with filters, it only takes one of them to leave the filters in a nondefault state to ruin the party for everyone.

    I suggest allowing the creation of a "Default" sheet view that is used whenever the sheet is opened online for collaboration. This would allow the default view to be fine-tuned by the spreadsheet maintainer.

  5. Too many clicks

    It takes too many clicks to open Excel files from online sources. It would be great to set a default of always using Excel on PC for files. Especially helpful since Excel online cannot open Macro enabled files.

  7. Remove access to entire iframed spreadsheet

    There is a black bar at the bottom of a oneDrive spreadsheet embedded in an iframe. It contains four icons, one of the left and 3 on the right for such functions as give feed back, info about the workbook, and view full size workbook. I would like to hide the options for "info about the workbook", and "view full size workbook". I only want web users to be able to see the area that I have specified.

  13. Allow Users to Edit Ranges should function in Excel Online

    This functionality would be incredible for several things my office would like to implement if it worked online. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly but it appears other users have been having the same issues. When I open an excel online file in the desktop app and give specific users permission to edit locked ranges it works when editing on my computer in the desktop app but not when editing on the web app.

  15. Save to desktop

    Make a Save As button on top when you open it online. So its easy to download/save rather than open in desktop and then save

  16. I like to make the choice between Ecel application and online for a complete session at least as option

    Hello, we work with Onedrive and share data. Here and there I need to copy data from multiple Excel files on Onedrive to another one. Excel online is not always my first choice and I like to have an option for opening the files always in Excel application; choice for session is preferred.

  17. For Office 365 when sharing a worksheet, I would like the ability to lock down the cells that I have edited.

    I would like the ability to lock down cells after editing a shared workbook. This way if another user wants to edit those cells it would be a two step process to unlock the cells and edit the values a second time.

  18. Please discontinue Excel Online

    Look--there is Excel on a user's desktop that has one set of rules, then there's Server versions of Excel sheets that have a different set of rules. Now Excel Online has an entirely different (and cripplingly limited) set of rules.

    So if you must continue the madness--at least call it something else, like "Doodlebumpkins" or "Excel Lite".

    Calling it "Excel" severely diminishes the brand. People who have only used Excel in the "online" version will hate it forever and would be unlikely to ever purchase the "real" Excel because you don't get a second chance to make a good first…
