  1. Examine copy and paste function within the browser version of Office 365 Excel

    Copy and paste function is so hit or miss in Office 365 Excel.

    For example, formatting of tables is completely lost even when I'm copying and pasting from one tab of Office 365 Excel to another.

  2. right click paste options

    Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

    In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

    We are excited to announce that it is now possible to Duplicate worksheets in Excel Online.

    There are still cases where Excel Online will be unable to duplicate a worksheet. Most notably, in case either one of the following is present in the worksheet:

    • Images
    • Shapes
    • Charts

    Excel Online team is working to resolve these limitations.
    Please continue to leave feedback on the feature, to help us improve.

  8. Excel survey with automatic timestamp on each record

    When you get many responses it often is very important to understand WHEN a certain respons was submitted. For exampel if the same respondent has submitted multiple times and you want to sort out the last one of them....
    Add feature that automaically add a timestamp on each record.

  11. Excel Survey Improvements: Multi-Select for more than 2 items

    I need to be able to allow users to select more than 2 options. If you can't allow this can you add a custom checkbox option?

  12. Excel survey needs to capture email address/user name for respondant

    There doesn't appear to be a way to automatically capture the user name/email address of the respondent to an Excel O365 survey. This means I am having to create an extra question filled with people's names to capture this information which reduces the value of the survey.

  20. Excel online survey form for mobile

    If the answer can only be a date then make a calendar appear to make it easier to select your answer. Having to use a virtual keyboard to type out a date is pretty troublesome especially for people who are accustomed to different date formats.
