  1. Sorting Not Working

    Advised by MSO365 support to raise a bug here. The sort function is not working correctly when using excel on the web however when we open the exact same file in the application it works fine.

    When we sort a date field in ascending or descending order (as shown in OnlineIssue1 & 2) it does not sort the data correctly as some data is still in the wrong order. If we follow the exact same steps in the application the data sorts perfectly as expected (as shown in Application1).

    I dont believe this is a data issue as…

  2. Default print option settings feature

    Currently, with Officee365 it is impossible to set default print settings to Letter or any other size. it is also impossible to set the default scaling of the printed output. If you need to print the document several times due to minor changes, you have to manually set the paper size and scaling each and every time. This is a huge time waster and should be implemented asap.

  7. Don't autofill the "Hyperlink" field to include "http://"

    The "http://" text in the hyperlink field always has to be manually deleted when copying + pasting links into cells in a worksheet otherwise the link will appear with "http://https://[link]" and the link won't work properly.

  8. Enable the Power Query as a native web experience

    It would be nice if we can have a native Power query experience on the web. You have it in Flow called Power Query. Cant we add this as a tab. And also allow people to use Power Pivot in the Excel Workbook. To start if we can import csv files , excel files and json files from a one drive or sharepoint list. Later from Azure blobs would be very nice.

    This will help doing alot of manual work. Can we also increase

  11. All functionality available

    The option to update documents within a team is great but the limitations of all excel functions unavailable cause me to make copies and re-save new files because I cant update them the way I need to in Teams. Would love to stay within Teams!

    We can trace who is the person modify the data inside the excel column.
    What time they make the change as history.
    Maybe we wrongly change it the data, so we able to found back.

  13. Improve Conditional Formatting in Teams

    I just posted an excel file to Teams and the conditional formatting did not come with it. I haven't done any trouble shooting, but it appears that it's because I used formulas for the conditional formatting, rather than the other options.

    Is there a reason you can't use formulas for conditional formatting on Teams?

  16. Function Library (book icons) in the Formulas Tab

    Basic and intermediate users may be happy to see all the book icons in the Formulas Tab (Function Library group) as we have in the desktop version, to help them to find which functions can be used. Even the mobile version has the categories there... This would be welcome on the online version too.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Excel for web doesn’t support VBA or macros. There is however a new scripting option if you are looking to automate your solution. Office Scripts is a new offering we released in public preview earlier this year. It offers recording and scripting capabilities based on TypeScript/JavaScript languages. Please check out https://aka.ms/office-scripts for details.

    Office Scripts doesn’t yet allow shape based triggers. It is something that is of interest to us. Could you please provide some details how how you wish to use this in Excel for web?

    If you have any questions, please reply back to this email.

    Thank you,
