  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Custom Sheet View for Collaboration Should Have Option for Document-Wide Sheet View

    The sheet view setting is great, however each custom sheet view is restricted to that sheet only. If there was a 'custom document view' then I can preset a view for each employee who uses the spreadsheet.
    (E.G. in this case its for a job list, each sheet is a different client, there is a column called Job Manager, I want a custom filter so that each individual can select the view and only see jobs they manage across the document, rather than selecting on the sheet and changing view each time)

  8. Change cursor/selected cell outline color.

    The Green outline isn't always the best color for users and being able to change the outline color used to identify your currently selected cell would help immensely.

  10. Excel integration into VS .net core web apps.

    Maybe an Excel-like data grid for VS web apps that takes a JSON data object.

  12. Excel tab option to move as sidebar

    Tabs are usually shown at bottom. While working on long named tabs and too many tabs, i will be interested moving this tabs on side so that i can go over different tabs quickly instead of scrooling.

  13. Word Wrap By Default for all cells

    Word wrap is not enabled by default. Usually we have to enable it one column at a time or cell at a time. Can we have it enabled by default ? (Option to disable can be there)

  14. Freeze first row in Excel by default

    In most spreadsheets the first row is usually headings. Can we have that row frozen by default (of course have undo allowed).
    Save everyone across the world the time to freeze that top row !
    Those that want column and row freeze options can do it manually.

  15. Can there be a lock option on the worksheets tab?

    Can there be a lock option on the worksheets tab? I work in recruiting and use multiple worksheets in a workbook and the tabs keep moving. This slows down my productivity when having to find the tab or relate it back to it's sister tab.

  17. Open sheets in A1

    Hi,

    I have no idea why but whenever I open Excel files, they open in places where there are no values. There could be an opt-in setting to have it always set to A1 of the first sheet of the file.
