  1. Freeze first row in Excel by default

    In most spreadsheets the first row is usually headings. Can we have that row frozen by default (of course have undo allowed).
    Save everyone across the world the time to freeze that top row !
    Those that want column and row freeze options can do it manually.

  2. Word Wrap By Default for all cells

    Word wrap is not enabled by default. Usually we have to enable it one column at a time or cell at a time. Can we have it enabled by default ? (Option to disable can be there)

  6. Restrict editing sheet views by requiring the view to be saved

    Require a sheet view to be saved if someone adds a new filter within an existing sheet view so it doesn't modify the sheet view for everyone.

  12. Sheet view in online excel not working

    Sheet view functionality is amazing as its lets the user create their own private filters without impacting other users view. However if I create multiple sheet views with different filters , most of the time it displays default view regardless of the custom sheet view I select! I want to inform that , it worked perfectly in first day but started showing default filters there after.

  16. 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.]

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Ribbon should retract once Custom Sort has been selected

    Once Custom sort is selected the ribbon stays extended meaning you then can't see the Column Letters that you need to refer to. This only is a problem when you have the ribbon on auto-retract
