  1. Save as CSV

    It would be great if you could add "Save as CSV" file format to the Save As feature.

  2. clear "recent documents" list option

    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.

    Hi E,

    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,
    Dan [MS]

  3. request was taking too long

    NEED HELP! This issue doesn't make any sense. I've tried all solutions found in https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/officeonlinesupport_blog/2015/05/04/excel-online-request-was-taking-too-long/ to no avail.

    So now I'm stuck with a file that I cannot open online. THE WHOLE POINT OF SHAREPOINT is to COLLABORATE ONLINE. Not possible when you cannot open a file. I cleaned it up. Went from 6MB to 2MB. still not able to open.

  4. Save to a desired area of sharepoint

    I have master files I use as templates, it would be nice to be able to save different versions directly into different SharePoint folders eg currently it will only let me save to the folder the file is currently say templates but if I then use the template and want to save it in "January" I have to do this locally or open to sharepoint windows in ie 11 and move the file across.

  6. I'm told: can't automatically save so I might want to download my work. But I don't know how to download my work. "Details" pop-up shd help

    I'm told: can't automatically save so I might want to download my work. But I don't know how to download my work. "Details" pop-up shd help vut doesn't. I recommend a "Download Now" link right after that message.

  7. Save As

    I have already downloaded an attachment but there is no save as feature so I renamed it and sent it on once I had amended but now I want to amend it differently for another person and find I cannot resave the original file to One Drive which is very inconvenient as I do not have Excel on the laptop I am using. I'm not trying again by using the preview feature to see if I can copy paste. If I had known I would have copied the original.

  9. Add 'Upload File From Computer' Option

    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.

  10. Make Sharepoint Filenames in URL the same as the path!

    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.

    Hi,

    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?

    Thanks,
    Dan [MS]
