  2. Allow opening and closing of outlining in a protected sheet

    Allow users to open and close already set up outlining in a protected sheet. Easier than having a background macro to enable this. Would also enable this to be done on protected and shared workbooks, where the macro solution generates an error

  4. Web version is so unreliable

    My proposal is that in 10 years google sheets is going to dominate the world. What I show in the screenshot is something that's never happened to me with google sheets.

  7. Filtering on multiple selection on VBA coded dropdown list

    I think it would be useful filtering for multiple selection dropdown lists,
    I don't think it is possible to do.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    We are indeed working on PQ for Excel for the Web, as part of our efforts to make PQ work cross-platform.
    PQ JS APIs for Office Scripts are also part of this effort.

    Stay tuned for updates :)

  9. Office Scripts with access to other files on SharePoint or OneDrive

    It would be nice to import other ExcelScript object from specifed path.
    Or import other files (txt,csv) in base64 format then convert them to readable format (array of values)

  10. Microsoft provide a definitive position on controls in Excel Online

    Excel Online still doesn't support controls, which is now making it inferior to even Google Sheets, which now allows tick (check) boxes to be inserted into cells.

    I'm aware that in-cell lists can be used as a workaround/replacement for drop down boxes, but check boxes are hugely valuable as they allow single-click toggling of binary assumptions. In-cell lists containing TRUE/FALSE or Yes/No require 3 clicks to toggle, which is a relatively jarring user experience.

    I would like a definitive statement from Microsoft indicating whether controls will ever be included in Excel Online.

    To date it's been made clear that this…

  11. Allow the decimal point to be customized for specific region

    Allow the decimal point to be customized for specific region - i.e. for South Africa allow setting the decimal point to a full stop

  12. Add OnEdit OnChange event

    It would be really usefult to add Events listners on TypeScript Office Script or in Power Automate.

    There is no way to trigger a script if a change is done in excel.

    this is a big limit which forces to use VBA instead, which is not supported in online versions.

  13. Minimise default number of empty rows in new worksheets

    Problem:
    Currently when creating a new workbook, or opening an existing workbook, Excel seems to automatically load tens of thousands of empty rows at the bottom. This absurdly high number of rows makes it harder to navigate as it makes the vertical scroll bar useless - particularly since Excel sometimes has an unexpected halfway-down default viewport on existing workbooks.

    Possible Solution:
    Make the default number of rows in new or existing workbooks a most a hundred empty rows more than the number of rows with content in them.

    Example #1 A new blank workbook starts with 100 rows loaded

    Example…

  14. add additional durations for "return()"

    Stock data information is great!

    the maximum duration for return is presently 5 year. Would be very helpful if 10 year and 15 year durations could be added.

  16. Enable GoalSeek for doing complex iterations

    For calculation accurate mortgage plans you will need to do a goal seek - this is currently not possible with Excel for Web. As ideal situation you could insert the input parameters and then the goal seek procedure can started with the click of a button.

  19. Add Timestamp column for table

    This applies to both online and desktop version. When values change in a row in a table, in some cases information about when the change was done is required (e.g. when a workbook is shared and updated manually by several users). This can be solved by an event in VBA, but it can also be solved by using a formula and 'Enable iterative calculation'. The last option requires changing a application-wide option in Excel settings, if this could apply only to a workbook at least it would be possible to create a solution that works for all users using a…

  20. Enhanced Excel online collaboration experience & efficiency

    Hi Team

    To enhance online collaboration, improve experience & efficiency, I suggest:

    1. Allow a mirror copy of the file to be downloaded on the the individual user's desktop, let them work as if working with a stand-alone file, including custom filters, sorting - each used be allowed to filter as per their requirement, update cell range as per their requirement and excel automatically updates relevant data range on the actual file online

    2. Excel files, no matter what their size, must open and close faster than it currently does, stop from hanging midway in middle of an operation/s
