  1. Move columns instead of replace them

    I should be able to move existing rows/columns by clicking and dragging - WITHOUT having to replace an existing row/column.

    Google is SO MUCH BETTER at these basic, user-friendly functions.

  4. Allow unhiding of columns furthest left

    I cannot unhide columns that are furthest to the left on the web version. On desktop app, I can hover over the left edge of the left-most column to enable expansion of the hidden columns. If I hover on this edge in the web version, it does not allow me to double click to unhide the columns.

  5. Change the name, I went through lots and lots of apps to get on this Exel

    The name Exel does not fit this site and sharepoint does.

  11. Can you turn off the automatic hyperlinking of email addresses in a shared worksheet? Make it an option saved to the workbook.

    Shared Excel worksheets automatically change email addresses into hyperlinked version. Please allow a setting that globally TURNS OFF the hyperlink option.
    As you navigate through cells, it opens new web tabs due to hyperlinks.

  13. Groups not to be locked to row but moved when filtering list with grouped items

    Groups (in Ribbon: Data -> Group/Ungroup)
    I understand that in columns it can be used to group similar data and hide unhide content. But I do not understand what is it good for in rows. When filtering/sorting excel moves values outside from Groups.
    Items should be locked to the groups and whole group should be moved/sorted according to the main item. The main item should be moved to top row of group. By main item I mean the row with + which is used to open/close group.

  14. Formatting suggestion

    Allow certain words/characters in a cell to be bolded, italicized, change color, etc. in a cell instead of having to format the whole cell that way.

  17. Add conditional formatting "Manage rules" option to the online version.

    As the title states. Or if the function is already there make it easier to find because I couldn't find it.
