  2. Add Actions for Excel in the IFTTT service

    IFTTT is a way to connect services together based on Triggers and Actions. Being able to use Actions to import data from other services via Triggers would allow users to chart and track many different things.
    Skype, OneDrive, and OneNote already have this capability.

    Example Actions would include:
    Add row to Worksheet
    Update cell in Worksheet
    Add tab to Workbook
    Run a macro

  5. Seamlessly import a range / sheet from another workbook(s) online.

    Would be great to have an "Import range / sheet" functionality in Excel online that would import data from one online spreadsheet (or multiple spreadsheets) to another real time.
    Ex. Say I work for a Global company. Countries have to update project sheets on a weekly basis. They cannot see other countries information but I need to be able to. Instead of having to check each individual sheet, it would be nice to be able to import the real time data into a master file (view only). That way I can track their progress easily by only having to check…

  8. Despite appropriate location setting, entry into date formatted cells is still in US order.

    cells are formatted to display dd-mmm-yy for the appropriate location - e.g. Australia
    but when entering data, it currently must be mm-dd-yy or wrong date is entered.

  9. Excel for the web and Excel Online should handle ODC connections to PowerBI

    In PowerBI it is possible to "Edit in Excel", which creates an ODC connection to the data model.
    But the resulting report is not possible to view/slice from either Excel Online or Excel for the web from either SharePoint Online or PowerBI.
    This forces us to build and maintain separate data models for every single report.

    Please let Excel Online and Excel for the web be able to authenticate towards the PowerBI, that would make the BI tools much more useful.

  12. Would be great to use the Power Query ETL Process to export directly to CSV from Power Query!

    I work in SC Analytics and being able to combine Large queries and export to readable files CSV/Text (beyond Excel's 1MM Row limit), would enable so many of the processes I manage to be automated!

    thank you so much for providing Excel Users with this platform

  17. In Excel, it could be a useful feature to be able to attach files (for informational backup purposes) to an excel workbook.

    In Excel, it could be a useful feature to be able to attach files (for informational backup purposes) to an excel workbook. This would help the user be able to trace back to important source documents.

  19. Insert image in a cell

    Insert Image in a cell, with various options of adding the file to the cell, like from camera or from a gallery or from a any one drive.
    This option is currently available in google and can be implemented in MS-Excel, due to this the productivity is enormous in construction industry.

    I request upon to bring it as soon as possible.
