  1. Excel in Teams text alignment

    Allow for vertical text alignment when veiwing Excel Docs in Teams. Currently if having a table/list using vertical text in an Excel it moves the text and makes the column unreadable.

  3. Ability to hide an Office Script created in one Excel Online file from other Excel Online files

    I would like the ability to hide an Office Script that I create in one Excel Online file from my other Excel Online files.

    And, even more useful: while only scripts created within a file should display by default in that particular file's Script Gallery under the Automate tab, when we select "All My Scripts" (which displays my scripts in the Code Editor pane that opens at the right), it is here that I would like to see all Scripts from all of my Excel files, and from here be able to enable and disable whether a script is available…

  4. Improvements to Excel Web Embedding

    Microsoft, you're missing a huge trick!

    If you can significantly improve the ability of embedding Excel worksheets/ranges/tables into a website / javascript - with much better navigability across worksheets, it will significantly improve the way I can, and many others (including Governements, Tax Officials, etc.) can present their tutorials (with example calculations that can be interacted with) online.
    I've spent months trying to find a great solution - but I can't find anything, so end up using the clunky excel embed capabilities - which aren't very good.

  6. When the excel online is shared to several people, another person will see the filtering make by another person.

    It is great if everyone can make their own filter and edit on the range hide by another person.

  7. Have "Date Axis" work the same on Pivot Charts as on standard charts

    On regular charts selecting "Date Axis" will cause the chart to draw with the data correctly spaced (i.e., dates that are 7 days apart will be 7 spaces apart on the chart) even if there is no data. On Pivot Charts "Date Axis" behaves just like a "Text Axis" and non-adjacent dates are drawn adjacent to each other.

  9. Screen Sharing on Excel

    When one of my teammates and myself are on the same excel worksheet, someone has full control of the sheet and the other person is just viewing what I am doing. So when I move to another sheet, the person's excel will automatically follow me where I go on the excel sheet. In a sense screen sharing/screen mirroring.

  10. Excel online workbook to open a default sheet whenever it is accessed by anyone

    > User A opens the Excel Workbook and edit the Sheet 3, saves and closes the Workbook.
    > When user tries to open the same workbook again, he is redirected to Sheet 3 directly.

  12. full parity between Power Query from Power BI and Power Query Excel

    Power BI always gets new M functions and features first. The Power Query editor in Excel however, lacks behind a lot. Many functions that are generally available in Power BI desktop never make it to Power Query Excel.

    for example: the M function Html.Table has been available more that 2 years in Power BI desktop. But sadly still isn't supported in Excel 365.

    Please make all functions and features of the Power Query editor in the free software "power BI desktop" also available in the paid subscription of "Excel 365".

  13. Enable drawing in Excel for web

    Drawing and viewing drawing in excel files works in iOS, Windows, MacOS, but not web or MS Teams. Would like to see it work in web and MS Teams also.

  14. Add textboxes to Excel online

    Add textboxes to Excel online
    It is ridiculous that you can't add a textbox or edit an existing textbox in the ****** online version.

    Maybe you could ask Google to show you how?

  15. Show the function wizard box on Excel for Office 365 (Microsoft Teams)

    When using standard desktop Excel a 'function wizard' dialogue box appears for, as an example, an IF function. It has three boxes where the user can input the query, then IF true, and IF false. As I am a teacher and use Microsoft Teams, it is unfortunate that this function disappears when pupils are completing Excel sheets online. It would be helpful if the Function Wizard Dialogue Box was in the online version.

  17. Allow user the ability to save a custom view, including the zoom setting and the exact cells in the x,y axis.

    When we open the workbook we need to be able to get to a preset View instantly without scrolling, regardless of the view that is seen upon opening. This is different than the ability to save filtered views, although the two options should work together.

  18. Please fix the "broken" wrapping format in Excel for the web. When cells with wrap format are updated in a table, the row height collapses.

    Bug: since recent release in Excel for Web, cells with wrap format within a table collapse to default row height when edited. Row height only restored either via Ctrl+F5 page refresh, or toggle wrap format. Workaround is to set a default row height showing multiple lines, then the "collapse" is not such an issue if cell has a lot of text.
