  5. Undo automatic formatting

    We require "undo auto-formatting" function at excel on web. Every time we enter email address, it turned a hyperlink automatically. And when we double click the cell as normal edition behavior, it doesn't allow editing but open the link directly. Hope this function can be improved and be more convenient to users.

  6. I would like to see the same display in safari on ipad as in excel online on PC.

    When I use the mouse on my ipad, the menu for touch comes up and is very difficult to use.
    I would like it to display and work the same as on a PC.

  7. Data Validation from a separate sheet

    I'm trying to do a simple table lookup from another sheet but this doesn't appear to be possible on Excel Online. I have several tables with a "person" column that allows users to select a pre-defined list of member names from a drop-down list using data validation. This works fine except every time we add or remove a member I have to go and update about 20 tables. It would be much more efficient to have one master member list on a separate sheet and do a simple lookup using data validation list from this sheet. From what I understand,…

  8. Fix this find & replace for: find * (star) replace with - (hyphen)

    Please fix this find & replace combination:
    find * (star) replace with - (hyphen)

    When I run this combo, the end result in a cell is just one hyphen or dash (also in desktop version).

    The only way I can perform the above find-replace quickly is by copying all the cells to InDesign, which I use all the time for layout things, and using its find & replace function, then I need to copy all cells back to Excel.

    Thanks!

  11. Teams does not allow you to use the notes feature in excel

    Notes are much better than comments in excel and you don't let us add notes when working on excel in Teams. Accountants use spreadsheets year after year and the notes feature is key to documenting what is in the cell. Comments doesn't do the job.

  13. Highlight keywords in spellcheck

    Please add the feature to show highlighted words when conducting spellcheck in Excel. The entire spellcheck feature needs to be updated to Word standards, as Excel is being used for this in the business world.

  14. Enable and Disable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop Excel ONLINE

    Please make an option like in Desktop Excel, that allows to enable or disable drag-and-drop cells.
    ONLINE excel ir great for sharing one document with many people, but many times it can get annoying if someone by accident dragged the cell to other and one or both of the cells was used in formulas. Even with Password protection this dragging is possible, so it`s not an option to prevent that.

  15. Pause edit of a calculation

    Often when one is editing complex formulae in a cell it becomes necessary part way to leave that cell and double check some of the input cells. This is not currently possible without 'cancelling' that change and losing any progress, prefixing it with ' or 'entering' the change. ' or entering the change has other impacts, e.g. #value forcing a column width adjustment.

    By adding a pause calc option, this would allow one to 'step out' of the editing process but keeping that cell in a limbo stage (identifiable in the Evaluate formula) based on the cell's last entered value…

  17. Correct a support site.

    I followed the directions at https://support.microsoft.com/en-ie/office/locate-and-reset-the-last-cell-on-a-worksheet-c9e468a8-0fc3-4f69-8038-b3c1d86e99e9 to eliminate blank cells in locating the last cell in the worksheet with cntrl+end. The directions did not work. I am working in Office 365. If anyone has any suggestions for correcting this issue, please post. Thanks!

  18. Make it possible to convert line breaks in replacement tool

    For example, I need to convert "VALUE1+VALUE2+VALUE3" into:
    VALUE1
    VALUE2
    VALUE3

    But this is possible only on a local Excel version. On Excel online I can't done it, because of not working Ctrl+J. I'm able to do it only mechanically like moving through each value and pushing Alt+Enter

  19. Find and replace should have the option to modify the color of the text and fill again

    I used to be able to use the find and replace all tool to quickly make changes to not only the data in multiple cells, but also the color of the text and fill color. Now I have to manually change every cell to do so, which is time consuming and irritating!

  20. More fill colours in online excel. The current options are very limited.

    More options for fill colour, or at least have the option of 'more fill colours' like in the online powerpoint version. Excel use requires colours at a lot of the time
