  2. Make it possible to have multiple fill colors in the ribbon at once.

    As far as I can tell, you can add another fill color button to your ribbon, but both buttons will change to the same color as you select new colors. Being able to have different buttons for the different colors I use often would be great.

  6. Excel Online Color Issue

    We currently have an issue where color formatting changes every time we click on a cell. Example - If we have two colors in a cell (blue and green) and double click the cell, the color will change to all black and we will lose our previous formatting. This is an important feature for our team because our colors indicate project progress.

  7. Berry Pink is Essential

    Missing out different pink colours are not ok. Every painter would get a heart attack when missing out even magenta! So please, finally do something about it and give also different berry pinks, rose and other type of pink nuances a chance! Thank you.

  12. Mac users evidently don't have a format painter, but the PC version has it....this is a MUST HAVE.

  14. Format Form data as a number as it has been input by the form user

    When a form is completed, the numerical data passed to the synced excel workbook is formatted as text and with a preceded apostrophe displaying the error message "The number in this cell is formatted as text or preceded by an apostrophe".
    This should be synced automatically without the current manual fix of having to reformat the effected cells (see pic attached of manual fix). This also means that conditional formatting can't be used on these cells.
    Please, pretty please, when the end user puts in a number in the form they are filling out, format it as a number. Thanks

  15. When Orientation is changed, defaults to 0 degrees online.

    I use advanced features but the one feature that is missing in the online version that is really needed is orientation. I have long column titles that I have to change the orientation. My spreadsheets are used by multiple users and it would be much better if they could edit online instead of opening it in Excel then saving it back to the SharePoint site.

  16. There is one difference in the Web version of Excel, when I want to edit the properties of a certain cell

    Would it be possibe to make the ^1 function available in the online version as it is working in the offline version already since a very long time? Reason: I often need the "wrap text" format, but there is no button available. This is not bad, because here is online version and offline version similar. But ^1 is working in offline version and in online version it is not.
    Thanks a lot for your support in advance,
    kind regards,
    Markus

  17. When entering new dates do not automatically revert to US default. Especially if page was formatted for another time zone or area code.

    If a spreadsheet is uploaded to Microsoft Teams and have been formatted in a current time zone or area code. DO NOT default it back to US. And once uploaded, keep that date or time format so when new entries are made in teams access to the spreadsheet it does not format back to a default US position screwing up all new date or time entries.

  19. Change direction of grouping

    In the desktop version of excel there is the option to switch between "Summary rows below detail" and "Summary rows above detail" when grouping cells (also known as outlining).

    I would expect this functionality to also be within Excel Online.
