  2. Reviews by user and chat

    1) Having the chance to see the other's reviews with time and date, because if someone makes a mistake or deletes something accidentally, through the "reviews by user" we can correct.
    2) the chat to text to others online on the doc in the same moment for a better collaboration

  5. User X "has the workbook locked. Ask them to close the file or check it in." Is it possible that the file owner cannot kick that user out ?

    The sharepoint owner or file owner needs to be enabled to kick out users who checked out a file and forgot to check it in. Is it possible to set up an inactive time e.g. after 10minutes of user inactivity, the file is automatically checked in again?

  6. Better use of Excel in SharePoint

    Always been a huge Excel fan!!! But really HATE the implementation embedded in SharePoint. Way too many unsupported features for it to be of real value.

  8. In Excel webapp, add a way to share a view with others (e.g. via a link)

    It's currently possible to create a separate view with filters / sorting for yourself, without modifying the document. There should be a way to share your view with others, to quickly point them to a specific subset of information in the spreadsheet.

  10. Set the permissions to Download, Edit specific cells, Protect Formulas in online version separately

    The idea is that I can set the permissions before sharing, so:
    - We can control weather or not the file can be downloaded, regardless of it is editable or not online

    - Protect specific cells (contains formulas, specific ranges ... etc) from being edited, but the other cells can be edited

  13. Connect between 2 Excel files online with formulas

    I have two online Excel files.

    One is A
    Two is B

    I need to exchange the data online between them and connect/link them without the need to enter the data again and again since I have to do formulas and calculations again and again!

    Online exchange between two files is needed.

  15. Share Copies to Outlook

    The current product is not sharing a copy to Outlook. Links are nice, but usually require permissions to share outside the team requires a copy. I could not find this option on the Excel for Web Client

  16. Admin role for

    Enable the Site Admin or shared file Admin to stop teams from editing the file when required to. When multiple user are updating and editing a file after a cut off time the Admin should have the ability to restrict/stop the users from performing any further editing the shared file.
    Also maybe enable a setting on the shared file after a cut off time no further edits are permitted on the file

  17. Desktop Excel is great, spreadsheet edit within SharePoint is TERRIBLE. I suggest ALWAYS opening .xls* files within the desktop app.

    Desktop Excel is great, spreadsheet edit within SharePoint is TERRIBLE. I suggest ALWAYS opening .xls* files within the desktop app. Why even try to provide functionality within SharePoint?

  19. Option to embed an Excel file with toolbar

    Currently it is only possible to embed an Excel file in a site without the toolbar (ribbon) that is available when someone opens an Excel file for online editing. Please provide option to add this toolbar.

    Reason: The embeding of an Excel file with the capability to not save added and edited content allows us to create Excel files that can be used in education. We can create exercise templates to which students can add content, edit content and try out functions like FLOOKUP, but as their changes are not saved, other students are not effected by their changes which…
