  1. I would rather purchase the software and not have to worry that I cannot access my documents

    If a hardship occurs and you are not able to pay for a renewal you lose your documents until you are able to renew. This is a situation that is now the new form. This is not acceptable. This is bad business. I will have to find a way to get my information out of microsoft and the only way is a purchase and then move it to a more permanent non- environment. Thanks for nothing. I really wonder if the business community is really aware of this business ethic you now have obtained?

  3. When timing out allow the user to download the file.

    When you timeout it should allow access to the file on the cloud drive and ability to download.

  6. Allow zoom feature on mobile devices when previewing an excel file.

    When previewing an excel file on my android phone I have to scroll to be able to view the entire document. There is a zoom feature if I edit the file but, I dont want to have to disable autosave and open the file just to preview. If I could zoom out while previewing it would be much more convenient.

  12. Full screen, Excel only view, while editing/viewing Excel files in Teams

    Prefer to have only the ribbon and controls that are related to Excel Edit. Full screen view that exactly mimics Excel desktop application may prevent opening the same file in Desktop Excel application.

  15. Maintain hidden rows/columns in "sheet view" so other users are not affected by the change

    Sheets view offers a private view of the Excel sheet when sorted or filtered, another common change is hiding rows/columns but that currently affects all users when sharing document.

    Allow for row/column views to remain private in Sheet View so others are not affects.

  16. Features

    We use a lot worksheets in one book. There is no feature to get back to the first worksheet and I have to hold the back arrow down. Also, the online version you can't right click on the arrow and chose what worksheet you want. Also, you can't copy and paste as easily and it won't remember colours.

  17. Suggest to get a better connection with Mac

    Excel on Mac books work very slow. Love Excel but not liking the speed anymore. It used to be good. Unfortunately I have to use a Mac for work :-(

  19. set default cell in workbooks/spreadsheets

    move the default home cell to a1

    I have to use shared workbooks and everytime a look at one of the pages in the work book it seems to default to something like z100 (maybe not specifically that but trying to say it is out of range of the data I need to see)
    It i possibly the fault of the person who created the work book but for whatever reason, it is extremely annoying as I have to scroll back to the top corner of every sheet in every work book to find the information I need and this…
