  1. Offline Functionality for Editing Shared Documents

    As a user who goes in and out of network/wifi access, I would like to edit shared documents "offline" that will temporarily store my data locally until I am inside my network/wifi area when I can sync the data back to the master document.

  3. inserting a new row

    Currently if I right click and select "add new rows.." it actually automatically only lets you add one at a time. I wish to add more than this often and is very time consuming when working online in this way.

  7. Actually open an excel file, not an online one.

    I suggest that when you try opening the Excel file, that you open an actual Excel file, not an online one. This is making it difficult to change or even copy an excel online file to an actual excel file. I hate you excel online, you suck.

  8. Supplementary Ribbons

    When clicking on a Chart you show a button for Chart Tools. When clicking on a Table you show a button for Table Tools. Pivot Table Tools, Picture Tools, etc.
    You can improve the experience by actually opening the appropriate tools ribbon. Chances are greatly more often than not, than when a user clicks on a chart, the next thing they are going to do is to open the Chart Ribbon. So do it for them. If they don't want the supplementary ribbon open then all the other ribbon tabs are visible to open anyway.

  10. fix automatic hyperlinking so that it works like desktop version

    In desktop version, an email address is turned into a hyperlink only if it appears alone in the cell. In online version, if an email address appears anywhere in the cell - even one with lots of other text - the entire cell is turned into a hyperlink. Should also be able to turn off automatic hyperlinking altogether.

  16. R1C1 Format

    Hi, one of the things I would like to see added to excel online is the ability to use the r1c1 format for rows and columns as it is something that Google sheets doesn't do that I personally find very attractive about MS excel

  17. Cross product and dot product

    You have many esoteric functions rarely used but you don't have dot and cross product. The dot can be faked with mmult but it should be easier and most engineers use these two functions.

  18. Primary and Secondary Sorts

    I teach Computer Skills and Applications and Excel is a program that I use, however, with Excel Online I am not able to preform a primary AND secondary sort. I am not sure if I am missing something or if the function is not there. I see sort but can only sort in ascending or descending order. I would love to be able to do this using Excel Online.

  20. Online scripting language

    Include a scripting language on the online version in the same way that Google sheets does. The ability to automate excel on the desktop version via VBA is where the real power of excel is, the online version is therefore significantly handicapped by the lack of any scripting language. Power users need the ability to automate spreadsheet tasks.
