  1. Update Excel Spreadsheet in One Drive when new form response is received

    It's a nice feature to be able to see form responses in Excel, but it always forces a download of the Excel spreadsheet, when I would prefer to view my form responses in Excel online. I've re-uploaded to spreadsheet of responses to One Drive, but it's not dynamically connect to the form so it doesn't update. I would also like to receive an email when someone responds to the form. All of these features, I note, have been available on Google Forms for years...

  5. Home Menu & Spell Checker

    We are unable to strike-out anything and rows and column alignment. Hence we suggest to add all the options in Home menu like offline excel along with spell checker.

  6. subset Excel Template for online updates & sharing of information

    Using the Sharepoint excel and excel's powerful spreadsheet concept as the base for collaboration, have an idea that can bring a focused and goal oriented approach.
    Subset of excel is that excel does not show many rows and columns and menus, it will focus and change the layout based on the template and provide only workflow buttons, tabbed menus, and sections, for workflow
    1. Create an Excel template that contains forms for workflow
    2. the forms can be updated by different members
    3. approvers and reviewers along with admin of the forms can perform action
    4. finally the workflow can…

  7. Why can't we just save a local copy!!!! It is simple surely.

    Simple request! Just let us download and work OFFLINE. What do you do when you have no signal or the data is too large to copy in one go. I'm going to avoid Office Online like a plague

  9. Please activate Conditional formatting, freezing view like Google offers. The online file gets corrupted often resulting in multiple upload

    Please activate Conditional formatting, freezing view like Google offers. The online file gets corrupted often resulting in multiple upload. Franchise/ service support should be made available.

  10. Allow Tables to be deleted

    Right now "the header and insert rows cannot be deleted" is the response you get when trying to delete tables. There seems to be no way of deleting them currently.

  12. See who has desktop file open when trying to edit online

    It would be good to know who has a desktop excel file open when you are trying to edit one online. Its frustrating as it doesnt let you edit the file until they close the desktop file. Working in a business with many users over several sites it would be great to contact the person who has the file open to find out when they will be finished updating the file.

  16. Prevent ending punctuation neutrals from being moved to beginning of text (Fix CSS "direction: rtl" coding)

    I embedded an Excel file into an online WordPress page via OneDrive. Wherever cell text is right justified and overruns the cell width, any ending punctuation neutrals (i.e. colon, question mark, etc) get moved to the beginning of the text. I believe this is because Microsoft codes their CSS for such spillover cells as "direction: rtl". It doesn’t appear I can override this with local CSS since it's running in an iframe, so my only workaround has been to avoid the ending punctuation or make the cells wider to eliminate the overrun. Do these spillover cells need to be formatted…

  19. share onedrive file link in Microsoft Teams

    MS Teams allows us to upload a file or share from sharepoint. Instead of upload file from users system. Can a link to user's file on OneDrive be added to channel and set to tab if wanted.

  20. have web app not close if user cancels decision to open in Excel

    If I click to edit in Excel (desktop) but then cancel, Excel Web app goes to an unusable grey screen. Have Excel respect that cancelling means return to where I was.
