  7. Licence Google Sheets because Excel online is absolutely terrible, no, I'm serious. It can't even do basic copy/paste without 'WORKING...'

    Basic commands and functions take forever to work.

    I wait minutes for a basic 4 cell copy/paste, how is this productive, seriously!

    Come on MS, you've been in the software game for too long for embarrassing things like this to be slowing down your users (which are forced to use the products).

    FYI, we moved away form Google apps and it's the cleanest most responsive UI and features going, didn't even need Excel on the desktop.

  8. Excel online - auto swith browser to full screen

    In the browser version - many less rows are viewable then desktop app due to browser menus etc.

    I suggest that when a spreadsheet is opened for editing in browser users given option to switch browser to full-screen mode

  9. Have a minimize button if file is opened in office.

    Whenever we open a excel or document in office ,it blocks entire mail and restricts viewing mail until we close the excel.Can we have a minimize button which will help in providing better view.This will enable user to open file whenever needed through maximize button it will also prevent restricted view.

  12. Ability to merge worksheet. Query function, consolidate or macro are available

    We need the ability to merge data from several months into one consolidated sheet and be sorted correctly. Before the company changed from Google sheets we did this with a SQL query.

  14. Excel files to PDF's sharing

    It would be great if we can share/send excel file's as PDF's with our colleagues.

    Also, it would be wonderful if I was able to save a file right on to my computer. The tab is there, but it doesn't work for some reason... "save file on to computer"

  16. Download or save excel online.

    You can't "save-as" and you can't download when you open a file via an emailed link from a guest. Can't copy into desktop excel app as the data set it too large. The capability to export is there, just not accessible when it's online.

  18. Allow immediate editing via web and a simple toggle switch to lock dock on the same page.

    Enable user to immediately edit a workbook or file via web and create a simple toggle switch to lock doc from changes while on same window. The preview should not be the default option when access a file, unless it's purposely locked.

  19. Shove this online piece of **** up your collective *****.

    Shove this online piece of up your collective *. Nothing seems to work correctly, or when it does, it doesn't the next time I try if for some unknown reason. Google was able to create collaborative apps and provide them for free. And now I can't even delete my own document from my own OneDrive location? This is inexcusable.

  20. SEE THE LOCKING PERSON IN ONLINE SHARING

    WHEN SOMEONE USES THE EXCEL VERSION FOR A SHARED DOCUMENT (INSTEAD OF THE ONLINE EXCEL VERSION), WHY DON'T WE SEE THE NAME OF THE LOCKING GROUP-MEMBER? SO THAT WE CAN WARN THEM ?
