    Awesome if you can add more capacity to open files with more than 5MB.

  2. In the files tab, add or remove basic column typest

    Like in sharepoint, being able to add a column for notes directly associated to a file in a single view helps.

  8. Master tab that shows all tabs in spreadsheet.

    Create a master tab in the lower left corner of the spreadsheet that allows the user to view and select any tab in the spreadsheet without having to scroll through the entire spreadsheet. We often create massive spreadsheets and scrolling is cumbersome. [This function is in Google Spreadsheet and it has saved time so often.]

  10. Audit history

    Since the workbook is accessed by multiple persons, allow for an audit history so changes made are documented. Helpful to track when errors made and additional training needed.

  13. Worksheet grouping with expand/collapse feature

    Similar to column/row grouping, with the expand/collapse functionality, but for worksheet tabs. This is a better way of organizing tabs than the alternatives (e.g., color coding groups of tabs, book-ending groups of tabs with section "header/footer" tabs)

  14. Ability to provide a link to a certain cell within online workbook.

    Would be nice to be able to provide a link that goes directly to a certain cell within an online workbook. Ex. Need someone to approve a certain item in a large list of items within excel online workbook. Instead of them having to try and find item, link would take them directly to the correct cell and sheet within the workbook.

  15. Column sort specifically in Outlook's Excel preview

    It would be great if a rudimentary sort could be added to the Excel preview of Outlook online.

    As a user, I'd like to be able to preview a daily large Excel report from Outlook at a glance by seeing the first several rows. Because the report is large scrolling to the bottom is cumbersome and the top rows currently are not helpful.

  16. Allow zoom feature on mobile devices when previewing an excel file.

    When previewing an excel file on my android phone I have to scroll to be able to view the entire document. There is a zoom feature if I edit the file but, I dont want to have to disable autosave and open the file just to preview. If I could zoom out while previewing it would be much more convenient.

  19. I want "Excel for the web" to be full screen mode.

    click [Full Screen] to show the sheet on full screen.
    Because currently some rows (e.g. URL, browser's tags, Excel logo, file name .....) makes the sheet appearing size small.
