  2. Allow edit of submitted survey

    After you have submitted an Excel online survey form, it would be good to have an option to edit your choice while the survey is active.

  3. Survey on excel can add a ranking as a response type.

    Add ranking type response so like 1 is very unlikely and 5 very likely.

  4. Upload directly from OneDrive an Excel attached to a email

    I see it is possible to upload in Outlook an Excel file from my OneDrive, while I can't seem to find any option to do the reverse.

    Because I am working in an enterprise environment, any facility to work faster is welcomed.

    Now I have to download the excel file then manually upload it to OneDrive, when I can edit it. Because I'm using Office 365 this means uploading is the only way for me to edit Excel.

    Thank you and probably this is a general topic for all apps in Office suite.

  5. Being able to favourite a sheet within Sharepoint/Onedrive without having to use web browser favourites/bookmarks

    I think the title speaks for itself, just a nice simple feature that would be handy.

  6. Enable the drop-down list feature in Excel Online for Read Only Files

    Allow users to manipulate data through drop down lists and view the file.
    The online version of Excel doesn't allow the drop-down box option to work in files in Read Only mode.

    -- Updating title to make it more clear

  7. Allow for equations using the equation editor to reference values of cells

    The idea is that as users change the values of cells, the values within an equation object will change accordingly.

  8. Add ability to Zoom in/out a workbook

    Add the ability to zoom a workbook in the web browser, without zooming the entire browser window.

    Thank you all for all of your comments and votes supporting this suggestion.
    We are now in the final planning stages towards starting the development of application zoom in the web version of Excel.
    We’ll make sure to share more information and updates as we progress.

  9. ability to fill in divided cells with a different color

    While this is a non-traditional use of Excel, my wife likes using it for quilting. What would help her is when she wants to make triangles that she could fill the cell with two different solid colors based on the triangle split.

  10. please give a sheetwise sharing option, there is only a work sharing option in Excel online.

    i have an idea that please give sheetwise sharing option in online excel, there is a whole workbook sharing option, but don't have a sheetwise sharing option in the same.

    Google Docs have the ability to do so. they have given the protect sheet option to restrict other used of the doc to edit. they can only see the document..

  11. Ability to add conditions to 'yes/no' questions

    I want the option to add, text box or choice list, to yes/no answers. For example; Did they save any money this month? If yes, How much. If no, why not. If I could put this all into one question I can more easily require the user to impute a response.

  12. Allow the option to select multiple choices.

    I want to be able to create a question that will allow the user to select multiple choices from a drop-down list rather than one. It is very cumbersome to create multiple drop-down lists for the user to choose from.

  13. Make the online version as good as the desktop - and make a charge for those who want the functionality

    Make the online version as good as the desktop version - and make a charge for those who want to use it.

  14. Have a clear filter button for all filters on the sheet as you can have with excel

    means if previous person has used filters and left them, easy to un-filter the table rather than try and see what was filtered and then un-filter it.

  16. Create own formula's ( So we can create something that connects to Api's for example)

    Main goal:
    - Create own formula's, so it's possible to couple the data with online api's

    There should be a method to add authentication though :)

  17. Fix Calculated field returns incorrect grand total in Excel

    As explained, the Grand Totals don't use the sub-totals of the calculated field. This is very non-intuitive/wrong.

    Fix.

  18. Add / Edit charts online

    One of those things that are badly missing online is the ability to add and edit charts in Word.
    In my opinion, add/edit charts is the simplest way to create compelling documents that look good and are easy to share/edit with anyone without going through Excel which some users a really not very much used to, especially at the C-level.

    Hi,

    While we do not yet support chart editing on the web version of Word, we’re happy to announce that we have released an improved chart editing experience for Excel on the web based on your feedback!

    Once the update reaches you, it can be accessed through the “Format” button, found by right-clicking on a chart or by selecting a chart and navigating to the “Chart” tab that appears in the ribbon at the top of the screen. Thank you for your continued feedback and responses.

    Thanks!
    Auston [MSFT]

  19. Correct bug to show "Survey" button when using Excel Online in a spreadsheet stored in Groups files.

    Right now when using Excel Online with a spreadsheet stored in a Group the Survey button is not available. It does appear when using Excel Online for a document in OneDrive.

    To recreate the problem,


    1. Login to Office 365

    2. Click the group in Outlook

    3. Open an Excel Document and edit online

    4. No Survey button shows
