  3. Take it offline


    • speed and reliability of keystrokes (long delay, unresponsive) reduces accuracy in a numbers-based program. This is horrible when speed and accuracy both matter.

  12. When an Excel spreadsheet is locked, the name of the person who has locked it does not always show up. Please fix

    It appears that a recent change was made to display the name of the person who has locked an Excel spreadsheet. Unfortunately, the name does not always show. I still get the message "Someone else is editing ..." with no name.

  14. Advanced Sorting of Sheets Within a Workbook

    It would be very useful to sort the sheets of an Excel workbook according to chosen data within the sheets. For instance, if a workbook contained sheets with stats for a group of baseball players, it would be useful to arrange the sheets according to a particular statistic that is common to all sheets.

  16. Allow VLOOKUP across Online workbooks

    In Excel client, it is possible to define a VLOOKUP across two workbooks. Not just sheets within a Workbook, but across two different files. Excel will retrieve and keep the filename and path.

    At one time this allowed me to create a complex (ever changing) network of various different but related data listings, without having to copy list 1 to workbook 2 for VLOOKUP validation. The files were stored on a fileserver that everybody had access to using the same Drive letter. Yes, this is old school.

    Now in the Online world, I want people to work on different workbooks,…

  20. The ability to delete columns/row permanently like google sheets. Having several thousands columns/rows on the x and y axis is not great UX.

    The ability to delete columns/row permanently like google sheets. Having several thousands columns/rows on the x and y axis is not great UX. Google sheets does this perfectly!
