For the Online Excel, it would be nice to be able to upload a file to cloud storage and cloud editing, from a computer that doesn't have OneDrive capabilities (Windows 7 and older). This would be especially useful in situations where you have to work on a file on a non-personal computer, from a flash drive. If the file could be opened in Excel Online and then saved to OneDrive through Excel Online that would be great.4 votes
When I try to open a file that another user is accessing in desktop Excel, I get an error because the file is locked. If real-time coauthoring isn't supported on the desktop, it would be great of Excel Online would give me the option to open and edit a copy of the original so that the files could be combined later.6 votes
There is a an obvious way to link to files on sharepoint. https:/.company.sharepoint.com/SITE/Folder1/Folder2/Filename
where an special characters are replaced. Instead the sharepoint URL's are crazy long and complicated.2 votes
We don’t understand the title of your idea, and there’s no description. Can you make the title more clear and add a description?
Add Support for Box.com to open and save too
I want to be able to clear the "recent documents" list that pops up when I click on "Open" link. I noticed that even deleted OneDrive document files are still on the list. If it's not automatically recognized by the system, then the user should be able to delete the name of the file on the list.4 votesDan Battagin [MS XL] responded
You can do this already today, though you have to do it from within Windows Excel (so I’m leaving the idea open).
To do it:
- if you just want to remove one document – right click on the document in the MRU and choose “Remove from List”
- if you want to remove all documents, follow the instructions here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/313454
Hope that helps,
