  2. To add Hard Drive options in Office Online

    I think it will be better if added a hard disk drive options which can show the saving documents options like offline ms office's .
    It just only shows one drive option and download to pc option ....

  4. Add Support for Password Protected Workbooks

    Please add support for opening password protected workbooks in Excel online. At present it means you have to drop to using the desktop version.

  5. stacked worksheet tabs

    We are currently experiencing a bug in which the worksheet tabs within excel online are stacked. Instead of just being one row, it instead gives 4 rows of tabs. I have an image but do not see a place to upload the image. We use it as a schedule and having access to many days at a time is quite beneficial.

  6. Provide a link to return to the SharePoint library the file was opened from.

    When opened from a SharePoint library users don't know how to get back to the library. Sure, the back button works but a bit of navigation is nice.

  7. Split view

    It'd be really nice to be able to enable split view while working on my docs online. This way I'll be able to view two parts of the work sheet at one time.

  8. Real time changes when viewing a file

    I have a excel online file, which I update regularly, it's stored on Onedrive. I update it daily - sometimes, twice a day. I have sent the view only link to my friends, they opened it in IE, Opera, Chrome, etc. My suggestion is to make it dyinamic. What I mean, if I change something on my end (excel online), they see the updated version in real time, without needing to manually refresh page each time.

    My friends cannot edit document and not all of them have Microsoft account.

  9. Add ability to for Find dialog to find results across the entire workbook
