    "To prevent possible loss of data, you cannot shift nonblank cells off of the worksheet. Select another location in which to insert new cells, or delete data from the end of your worksheet."

    Please provide more detail as to how to fix this issue.

  5. once done editing one cannot easily get out of the file. we're still inside with no option to "EXIT"

    people don't see exit and they close the browser but are actually still in the file, locking the file from being deleted. there needs to be a clear "EXIT" sign for people to get out of the file.

  9. Excel tab option to move as sidebar

    Tabs are usually shown at bottom. While working on long named tabs and too many tabs, i will be interested moving this tabs on side so that i can go over different tabs quickly instead of scrooling.

  12. Improve other Microsoft features in MS TEAM

    I created a chart in Excel, using the Draw feature, and uploaded it to MS TEAM. When team members went to view this file, the lines and arrows I created/drew were not visible in the TEAM application. Please allow this feature to be supported in MS TEAM so that additional steps, to share file(s), are not needed. Screenshots added for reference

  15. When in a meeting we often need to compare two files. Teams keeps shutting down a file while we look at another keep having to re-navigate

    When in a meeting we often need to compare two different files. Teams keeps shutting down a file while we look at another. We keep having to fully re-navigate in our attempts to discuss large files that take a while to download. The ability to see 2 files at the same time while screen sharing on teams would be great.

  17. Allow CTRL + PgDn/PgUp to toggle between tabs when opened from Sharepoint

    Opening Excel via SharePoint doesn't allow you to use CTRL + PgDn or PgUp between tabs like it does if you open directly from OneDrive.

    A novel idea would be to make all the commands you can use opening an Excel spreadsheet in the normal way work if opened using SharePoint.

  18. Add an explanation box to activate office when locked out.

    Suggest you get out from behind your computer and talk to customers. I am locked out of Office 16, I have the original key and cannot reload after putting in a new hard drive and getting my Microsoft password wrong. There is not box to put in an explanation in the ACTIVATION process.
    Your corporate communications need to improve dramatically.
