Online forms to support "grid" as exists in Google forms, and when done so to allow more than a single answer per row (Google does not)
Support Grid or matrix as a survey option and allow user to select more than a single answer within the matrix (grid as Google calls it). (Google does not support multiple answers). An example is dates as rows and class names, time of day, availability (yes/no), etc. as columns. When dates are recorded in the form and then the spreadsheet, allow the format to be in date format unlike Google where they are text.3 votes
Maintain copied data on the clipboard even if the "dancing ants" aren't shown around the copied range (Copy-paste clipboard persistence)
When you copy a cell or text and then you perform any action (like type in another cell) the item that was copied is not available to paste.
Basically, copy/paste does not work if you perform any action (like typing in a cell) between copy and paste.
This is applicable to desktop version too.

Great that you have automatic date group in excel 2016, but it is calendar ordered. While it can be the default, there should be functionality to allow user to modify. Not everyone has the same fiscal quarters and year ends.5 votes
Don't provide a warning on Pivot Chart refresh. I have a Pivot Chart which I right-click and press refresh, and I receive a warning that I need to be in a cell to perform a refresh.
The warning should not be displayed.6 votes
Good feedback. We’ll take this into consideration for our next planning phase. Please continue to vote on this feature idea.
Excel Survey is very plain. Would be nice to have similar features to Google Forms need the options of adding images, calendar, and clock.4 votes
If I want to add rows to only a few columns in the middle of a sheet I have to switch to full version of Excel. I do this very frequently, so I miss this feature. As for clear contents, I can't highlight multiple cells and delete all at once. In full Excel I can do that with right-click and :delete contents." I would rather just be able to highlight all cells and hit "delete" have all deleted.6 votes

My team at work, uses Excel in SharePoint for almost everything that we need to track. We've all (16+ people) have been having an issue. While editing Excel in the Browser, it randomly shakes up and down, the best way to describe it is the sheet moves up and down a few rows, really fast). One of my peers noticed the sheet starts 'shaking' after selecting a word in a drop down list of the sheet. To fix the issue, we have to completely close out of the Excel Tracker and then re-open it... Which causes a lot of extra time.

Example: When I'm on row 5, and need to scroll to row 6 or 7, the sheet will suddenly be on row 800 to 1000. I've tried using the arrows on the keyboard, clicking and dragging the side scroll (on the browser), and the scroll on my mouse. The most recent change I've made is added the top row Freeze Pane.4 votes
Excel Online should give you an update (via Outlook or Yammer, maybe?) once a document locked for editing by another person is free

On the embed code screen, if you uncheck "Include a download link", then disable view full size workbook
When you uncheck "Include a download link" your are telegraphing that you "don't want someone to download you Excel file".
But you can still "view the full-size workbook" because icon is still active.
Improvement: Disable "view the full-size workbook" when you uncheck "Include a download link"
This would be a nice security feature Then this acts as a true viewer, like the good old ActiveX days ;)
Also prevent someone from hacking the script to get the download!20 votes
When I try to open a file that another user is accessing in desktop Excel, I get an error because the file is locked. If real-time coauthoring isn't supported on the desktop, it would be great of Excel Online would give me the option to open and edit a copy of the original so that the files could be combined later.6 votes

My job just switched over to O365 from Google (wish they didn't). With google I could print the spreadsheets and have all the cells that I had highlighted highlighted on the print out. With O365 that is a big NOPE. Please put this in. I do not want to download the spreadsheet every time I have to print it. Should have been a day one feature.6 votes
Hi, I have set up charts for data visualisation within Excel that I would like others to be able to use in their reports and presentations. Unfortunately Excel Online does not appear to allow you to copy a chart.
Is there a workaround (that doesn't mean the user opening in Excel desktop and thus locking the file) or could this be added please?
Thank you.86 votes
You can currently copy a chart from Excel Web and paste it into other office applications as a picture. We’re investigating expanding copy/paste from Excel Web to do more, so please continue adding votes if this is a feature you are looking for.
If you are working in Office 365 versions Excel for Windows and Mac, opening the workbook from your desktop applications will not lock the file for others.
