  3. Allow both fixed rows & fixed columns at the same time

    Currently the user has the option of choosing a fixed row or a fixed column, but not both. Would be nice to be able to freeze 1st row & 1st column at least.

  5. Keystroke To Switch Tabs

    Would like a keyboard-shortcut to move from tab to tab. Currently, mouse is the only way.

    I suggest CONTROL-SHIFT-PAGEDOWN, since CONTROL-PAGEDOWN is already used by web-browser tabs.

    thx

  7. Create Nested Tables in a Single Cell

    Some of the online spreadsheet tools have the ability to nest sheets inside cells which opens up a lot more flexibility at creating groups of information together.

    I would like it If you can click on a link within the cell which would open up a table which can have more information that would be directly linked.

    Currently you can do this with links to other sheets but if there is a lots of links then there will be a lot of sheets. Maybe even thousands +. So using sheets would be difficult unless there was a better way at…

  8. If the online version would work at all that would be great.

    I'd like it if I could open anything. Excel, pptt, and it would allow me to use it. It does nothing but freeze and stop in the middle. Basically expect only the basic use of this and even that is not working.

  10. Need style pattern in filling cells

    style pattern in filling cells is not visible in Excel Online. It's a problem

    We need to access options format cells (number / alignment / font / border / fill / protection)

    More features online !

  12. "Chat" function in Excel

    The "Chat" function should open on the recipient's display automatically when a message is sent when both parties are editing a workbook at the same time.

  13. Ctrl End or Ctrl Arrow Down should just make the spreadsheet jump to the end of available data instead of scrolling over all the rows.

    I'm working on a spreadsheet with over 7k rows, if I press Ctrl End or Ctrl Down, Excel would happily scroll through all the rows (unnecessarily) and take its time when all I wanted was for it to jump to the last row.

  14. Add the ability to view and edit Excel Online and other Office365 documents in full screen

    It's great to be able to view and edit Office documents in the browser without having to rely on the native applications, but it would greatly improve productivity if the user were able to work on files online in full screen mode, as currently ribbons for both browser and the office web app take up much of the screen real estate.

  15. Have a collapse button that hides EVERYTHING except the cells

    Have a collapse button that hides EVERYTHING except the cells - IE the internet bar, tabs, top of the excel doc, all the options and menus and formula bar - If I'm going to use Excel online rather than Excel proper, it's probably because I just want to read something and maybe add comments. But with all the extras at the top and bottom, the working field is very small, so I NEVER use it, and ALWAYS open in full excel... A collapse button would mitigate this, and still be easy to swtch back if a function was needed

  18. Provide an option to disable Excel Online and default to desktop version

    Excel Online continues to disappoint new users and is hampering adoption of both SharePoint and Teams. Even if the library and site collection are set to "Open in client application", every Excel file that isn’t opened directly form the library in SharePoint or files tab in Teams, opens in the garbage online version, then has to be change to desktop, then user has to close the useless window of the online version.

    There is no option to open in the desktop version for a file attached to a planner task embedded in Teams, so then it is either jump through…

  19. Excel online when moving the horizontal scroll bar, often ended up moving the Sheets tab, very annoying.

    Excel online when moving the horizontal scroll bar, often ended up moving the Sheets tab, very annoying. Make the space a bit bigger or give us a way to lock down the position of the sheets.

  20. Give an option to Stop Excel from auto centering the screen on a cell that I type in.

    Please have allow an option to stop Excel from auto centering the screen on a cell that I type in. It's makes things very unproductive when I need things to fit on 1 screen and as soon as I start typing in a cell on the right side "poof" forget about seeing anything important any where's else on your screen. This may be a feature that some people like but it needs to be something that can be turned off.
