  1. 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.

  2. העיצוב המותנה לא עובד תקין

    בטבלה גדולה שיש בה הרבה שורות, והרבה תנאים שמתעדכנת באופן שוטף. העיצוב המותנה יוצר תנאים חדשים אם מעתיקים טקסט ממקום למקום.
    זה גורם לשיכפול של התנאים של העיצוב המותנה, במקום שיחולו על הטבלה או על עמודה בטבלה.
    מצד שני לא ניתן לעדכן את הטווחים של התנאים ולתקן את הכיסוי באופן ידני.

  3. Allow us to make fillable templates with tab placement locked

    Allow us to make our own template inside the app without having to open in SharePoint. That way we can allow others to edit cells but not delete the formatting or move tabs around my mistake.

  6. Conditional formatting cannot be replaced or there are no other editing options. For example, I want to change the color to several formulas

    Conditional formatting cannot be replaced or there are no other editing options. For example, I want to change the color to several formulas at once.
    The size of the window cannot be increased !!!!! But there are the formula editors, you can't increase the size of the window, who's doing the program, have you already made a formula with it ???
    To select and deselect the print area, why do I need a menu to open and why isn't printing next to it ???
    Of course you can edit it, d if an idiot would have made the menu.

  8. 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

  9. Improvement in Formatting Numbers

    I would like to be able to center a "comma" format number. It's not letting me on Teams. Is it possible? Thanks.

  10. Cells auto resize is making the cells look clumsy.

    When I select the auto resize option for the Cell's rows, I could see that some portion of the data is covered on the top and the bottom. And this makes the workbook look clumsy.

    May be ensuring that a minimum gap of 1 mm is there on the top and bottom parts of the cell will make it look better and also it would be easy to read.

  13. Option to customise cell fill colours

    I would like the option to customise the fill colour. I'd like to also be able to customise cells to add shading and gradient fill.

  14. The file this morning is in protected view and we are unable to add filters to drive what we need

    The protection level needs to be changed in order to allow users to properly filter their specific areas

  16. Links Disabled

    "Links Disabled: Links to external workbooks are not supported and have been disabled."
    Excel should show us where the link is so we can fix/remove it. This is very frustrating trying to find where the broken link is.

  19. make rows/colums invisible related to another data.

    I was needing to relate data to rows and make it disappear, like this: I have data in several rows and columns, where one column will say un-enrolled / enrolled, then I need the rows that says un-enrolled for the following columns to disappear when copy pasting and to look blurry within the worksheet, but an option/button to have/see it available as needed.
