  2. When I open the excel from Online to desktop version. The online browser should close.

    After I open the excel from online to desktop version. The online version should close because it creates 2 copies of the excel on my machine. When we have to work with multiple excels this creates confusion as we see duplicate excels on the laptop.

  4. Allow online EXCEL 365 workbooks to open at Sheet1!A1 every time or allow us to define it in the URL

    Online shared Excel 365 workbooks appear to open to the last cell a user clicked. This is no good if we are trying to display information to a team.

    Could you please give us the option to open sharepoint docs at sheet1!A1 as with the desktop Excel.
    or failing that, allow us to specify cell sheet1!A1 in the sharepoint URL to that workbook

    If I open excel from SP then it says as file is corrupt and the same file if I download and open then it opens correctly. I have cleared the cache, I have reopened the IE, I have restarted my laptop. Why such issue ?

  9. Be able to open excel files online even if it is with unsupported feature.


    • Should let us know which particular thing that sets off the unsupported prompt

    • Even if there are unsupported features inside the file we should be able to open the file ignoring the unsupported or opening it by creating a copy without the unsupported feature

  14. Having a default starting point when opening an existing file

    The starting point when opening and editing existing Excel files on SharePoint currently depends on what cell was clicked on last. While that makes sense for continuing where one left off, I find it cumbersome if I'm 45 lines down and need to see what my defining top row is, and have to scroll back to the top and then back to where I was to resume.

    I think it would be easier if the default opening would be at the top of the first book (if multiple books), and have the last section worked on highlighted, or some other…

  16. allow individuals who are microsoft 365 owners to open web based documents

    if a user has a valid Office 365 subscription it would be helpful if they were permitted to open documents in the desktop environment. Blocking this, reduces our ability to use your software and will lead us to use a different platform.

  18. Excel online opening to the last cursor spot vs top left

    When I open excel online it opens to an odd spot in my document. It appears the last spot my cursor was left is now the top right of where it opens. For example if I'm working in a document and leave my cursor on the far right of my page (there is no more data on the right) the next time I open it my file opens with that far right cell now as my top left cell shifting my document. When working in multiple files and opening and closing it makes the constant having to scroll extremely annoying.…

  19. Would be good to be able to download large files...

    I get that Excel online can only open files up to 5 MB, but if the file is larger I do not see the option to download it

  20. Error

    The only problem while using the excel sheet is that multiple users cannot use it simultaneously
