  2. absent sparkline in online Excel

    Online Excel doesn't provide sparklines. Sparklines are used in Excel, compact, informative, and just darn useful. Under Insert can sparklines be made available. I tend to not use Excel online since my Excel spreadsheets lose function.

    Thank you, Terry Wright

  4. Need for multiple text colors in single cell. Not possible in browser

    Need for multiple text colors in single cell. Not possible in browser

    I am trying to track copy changes using color in an easily sharable document, but Excel doesn't offer this feature in the browser version. It works in a standalone doc. The convenience of sharing a linked doc is helpful.

  5. Enable Office scripts on the Home/Personal version of Office 365

    I need to learn Office/Excel scripts for work, so that I can update some older spreadsheets that are programmed with VBA. However I do not have the time at work. I would like to be able to play with this at home - I have a personal office 365 subscription, but cannot access the automate tab.

  7. Change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web

    We should be able to change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web. For instance I want to turn off the auto hyperlinking, but I am unable to do so.

  10. Allow Edit on PivotTables Data Values

    Currently it is not possible to edit the data on a pivottable in Web.
    There is a property enableDataValueEditing which nly works on Windows but not on Web Excel.

    We have a requirement were the user makes edit on the pivot and then via the worksheet change event we update the data source (table on another sheet) and then refresh the PivotTableso so that the changes are preserved.

  12. To select 'Specific' Documents to always be on view mode, and require 'Check Out' to begin editing.

    we have one main document that shows all of our jobs list. Our issue with excel, is that if someone is online editing the document and Someone opens the offline version to update the tables (Using the refresh feature) it will create a separate document. We now have a huge discrepancy between the offline document and the online document. (A pain in the neck to chase up, on a weekly basis)

  14. ability to disable ribben items

    Developer should be given choice of which ribbon items can be shown/disabled. I am using WOPI and I want to limit my users to only some features of the excel. Say I dont want the user to use download or print or saveas options so I want to disable/hide "File" tab from the ribbon.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.
    For now, worksheet functions are not yet enabled.
    Worksheet functions requires some additional work for us to expose. We are going to look into that in the coming weeks and understand the work needed little better.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Excel for web doesn’t support VBA or macros. There is however a new scripting option if you are looking to automate your solution. Office Scripts is a new offering we released in public preview earlier this year. It offers recording and scripting capabilities based on TypeScript/JavaScript languages. Please check out https://aka.ms/office-scripts for details.

    Office Scripts doesn’t yet allow shape based triggers. It is something that is of interest to us. Could you please provide some details how how you wish to use this in Excel for web?

    If you have any questions, please reply back to this email.
