  1. Create a permission level which is allowed access/editing but only on the online version.

    There are times where no advanced editing is required from the multiple users of a document. Given we have to deal with humans they still wish to open in excel locking the document out from others. The ability to stop people from "editing in excel" via permissions would allow the owner greater control over who can do what with shared files.

  12. "Subsheets" (Hierarchy of worksheets)

    With just one additional row of worksheet tabs, subsist could be nested under top-level sheets. The top row would be primary sheets; the bottom row would be the sheets that are nested under the selected top-level tab.

  16. ability to see cell calcualations in view mode

    You currently can't see how the cells are calculated, unless you are in "edit workbook" mode. It would be nice to see how cells are calculated because I need to share a sheet with others so they can see the calculations, but I don't want them to edit the sheet.

  17. Publish Bug tracking of this software

    We need to have a public Bug tracking to report issues and see if they are getting worked on. All we see are NEW IDEAS but the existing ones sometimes don't work or there are some bad functional issues that get ignored.

  19. Want to view worksheet tabs

    I have a spreadsheet with multiple worksheets (tabs). When using Excel online, I'm only able to see the first worksheet. It would be great to be able to select which worksheet to view.
