  1. Allow sharing of an excel file that is stored in MS Teams Group in a MS Team Meeting.

    During a meeting, and click on Share, have an option to select a file that is in a MS Teams Group.

    Example of current workaround: I added an excel file to our team's MS Team Group. We had a MS Teams Meeting and I could not share that file. I had to share my desktop, then bring up the MS Teams app, navigate to the file I have in the MS Teams Group, and open it and share it via sharing desktop. At that point, I was unable to see the meeting (chat, participants, options, etc). If I click on…

  4. Reviews by user and chat

    1) Having the chance to see the other's reviews with time and date, because if someone makes a mistake or deletes something accidentally, through the "reviews by user" we can correct.
    2) the chat to text to others online on the doc in the same moment for a better collaboration

  5. When in a meeting we often need to compare two files. Teams keeps shutting down a file while we look at another keep having to re-navigate

    When in a meeting we often need to compare two different files. Teams keeps shutting down a file while we look at another. We keep having to fully re-navigate in our attempts to discuss large files that take a while to download. The ability to see 2 files at the same time while screen sharing on teams would be great.

  6. User X "has the workbook locked. Ask them to close the file or check it in." Is it possible that the file owner cannot kick that user out ?

    The sharepoint owner or file owner needs to be enabled to kick out users who checked out a file and forgot to check it in. Is it possible to set up an inactive time e.g. after 10minutes of user inactivity, the file is automatically checked in again?

  7. Set the permissions to Download, Edit specific cells, Protect Formulas in online version separately

    The idea is that I can set the permissions before sharing, so:
    - We can control weather or not the file can be downloaded, regardless of it is editable or not online

    - Protect specific cells (contains formulas, specific ranges ... etc) from being edited, but the other cells can be edited

  10. Connect between 2 Excel files online with formulas

    I have two online Excel files.

    One is A
    Two is B

    I need to exchange the data online between them and connect/link them without the need to enter the data again and again since I have to do formulas and calculations again and again!

    Online exchange between two files is needed.

  13. Option to embed an Excel file with toolbar

    Currently it is only possible to embed an Excel file in a site without the toolbar (ribbon) that is available when someone opens an Excel file for online editing. Please provide option to add this toolbar.

    Reason: The embeding of an Excel file with the capability to not save added and edited content allows us to create Excel files that can be used in education. We can create exercise templates to which students can add content, edit content and try out functions like FLOOKUP, but as their changes are not saved, other students are not effected by their changes which…

  16. Hide colums or Rows based on user access

    If I have shared a sheet with both customers and employees I need the ability to hide certain rows or columns so that only the employees are able to see internal sensitive information. We have shared documents that our customers interact with, and we are currently required to maintain two completely different sheets because there isn't a way for me to give access to the 1st 10 rows of information and exclude the 11 and 12 row which has information the customer should not see.
