  5. Excel online opening to the last cursor spot vs top left

    When I open excel online it opens to an odd spot in my document. It appears the last spot my cursor was left is now the top right of where it opens. For example if I'm working in a document and leave my cursor on the far right of my page (there is no more data on the right) the next time I open it my file opens with that far right cell now as my top left cell shifting my document. When working in multiple files and opening and closing it makes the constant having to scroll extremely annoying.…

  8. Open Excel application automatically

    It would be great if there was an option to open the Excel application automatically instead of having to manually click "Open in Excel".

  10. Having a default starting point when opening an existing file

    The starting point when opening and editing existing Excel files on SharePoint currently depends on what cell was clicked on last. While that makes sense for continuing where one left off, I find it cumbersome if I'm 45 lines down and need to see what my defining top row is, and have to scroll back to the top and then back to where I was to resume.

    I think it would be easier if the default opening would be at the top of the first book (if multiple books), and have the last section worked on highlighted, or some other…

  12. allow individuals who are microsoft 365 owners to open web based documents

    if a user has a valid Office 365 subscription it would be helpful if they were permitted to open documents in the desktop environment. Blocking this, reduces our ability to use your software and will lead us to use a different platform.

  13. PROGRAMMERS ACTUALLY HAVE TO USE THE THING

    MAKE THE PROGRAMMERS ACTUALLY HAVE TO USE EXCEL OUTSIDE THEIR PROTECTED WORKPLACES SO THEY CAN SEE WHAT THE REST OF US ARE SUFFERING WITH.

  14. Would be good to be able to download large files...

    I get that Excel online can only open files up to 5 MB, but if the file is larger I do not see the option to download it

  17. Improve locked files

    If I accidentally leave a file open on another computer, I should still be able to edit it on the next computer/online program. I signed in with the same accounts.

  19. when a colleague has locked a file and then parts on holiday we cannot do anything. There should be a max duration of locking, e.g. 24h.

  20. Excel Online should be able to open a XLST file properly

    If I have a stored template file in OneDrive Excel Online should be able to handle it properly, i.e., it should open a file based on the template and prompt to name it. Then it should behave as normal. Not having this function seems bizarre.

    I want to store a couple of template files in OneDrive so I can always get at them and use them from wherever I am working. Easy.

    Thanks.
