  1. Make the webversion fully functional

    This is the message I got from Microsoft: "This feature is not available in Excel for the web. If you have the Excel desktop application, you can use the Open in Excel button to open the workbook and print rows with column headers."

    The only problem is that, even though I have installed Microsoft Office 365 on my PC about 7 times now, Office never works on my PC. I cannot even access my documents when the wifi is running a bit slow. I live in a 3rd world country so the internet is mostly slow here. I daily regret…

  8. Include the shortcuts Ctrl Insert to copy & Shift Insert for pasting.

    Having these shortcuts will allow left handers to have a more comfortable experience. This is because left handers will be able to keep their right hand more to the right of the keyboard. For right handers Ctrl C and Ctrl V is more comfortable for right handers because there left hand is more to the right of the keyboard, than using Ctrl Insert and Shift Insert. So please consider these shortcuts for making a more comfortable experience for us left handers.

  9. Add Manage Rules under Conditional Formatting

    Add the ability to manage multiple conditional formatting rules in the web client, similar to desktop. Currently, the only workaround is to setup multiple rules in the desktop client and copy-paste the cells into a web-hosted document.

  11. Start from Scratch

    It's becoming more and more of a joke. You should have different levels of the application. You are trying to do too much in one kitchen.

  14. If Microsoft love Linux, bring Office to Linux.

    Microsoft <3 Linux
    At least that's what they say.

    People will trust them when they build office for Linux platforms.


    • Send from Linux.

  16. Online Apps in IE - Not a good idea

    We're forced to use Internet Explorer. Despite of the fact, that the new SharePoint is just incredibly slow responding (and this is definitely not due to a slow PC or internet connection), the Office online apps in Internet Explorer are a disease to use. Plus, we also have to use Teams. The apps in Teams differ to the Desktop apps, differ to the online apps slightly. I have Teams in German, but writing Danish and English (god ****** that spell checking... wait, which one?) and all other desktop apps are in English, but suddenly the Teams Office apps is in…

  17. How about when I download the Excel file you make don't have the spreadsheet appear upside-down and in a mirror image. It would be much mor

    Excel files shouldn't open upside down and mirror image! Crazy idea, I know. But I'm not dyslexic enough to work on mirror image spreadsheets - just not a talent of mine!

    Also - how about a Save As function that would save the document? I know you have better ideas than I do about what to do with my documents, but please just let me be me!

    Overall rating of Office 365 at this point is 0 stars out of 5. You people are failing. Completely.

  19. Support for vertical fonts in Excel spreadsheets using Excel Online app

    Currently clients are experiencing formating errors when creating a spreadsheet with vertical fonts using Excel Desktop application. When opening spreadsheet with Excel Online the vertical fonts are shown as horizontal fonts impacting on user satisfaction and experience. This is commonly an issue for customers saving a document in a SharePoint document library where the spreadsheet can be opened using Excel Online and / or the Excel desktop app. This is currently an Excel Online limitation.

  20. Make Excel Online App to be default app for opening excel files online and offline

    Thanks Microsoft for providing Excel Online app . Wish this app allows to create and edit files as the default app for users who don't have excel full application.

    This will allow users to use Excel Online as default app in windows and whoever wishes to have more functionality can choose (and will choose) Office 365 subscription or buy Office 2019 .

    Allowing this feature will be benefitted by Windows Desktop Users i increase the Office Online apps userbase subsequently may subscribe for Office 365 plans
