  3. Advanced filter options

    Introducing advanced filters like in Outlook desktop version will be great.
    We have filters for subject, from, to, body, date, attachment filters in outlook.

    It is a pain to search using keywords.

  5. Add ctrl+click to select multiple cells on Excel Online

    I can not select multiple cells on excel online by pressing CTRL and clicking on multimple cells.

    This is a basic function that prevents people from using the online version.

  8. Sort columns and update formulae

    e.g. column A cells have formulae with cell references to their row. Column b has strings. when I sort data by column B, the references contained in column A aren't adjusted to refer to their new row number.

  9. Ability to decrease Excel Table Size in Excel Online

    Right now, Excel Tables can only be increased in size in Excel Online (adding rows or columns) by selecting the table and dragging the corner downward or to the right. Strangely, the table size cannot be decreased by dragging left or up. This contrast to having the ability to decrease the table size by dragging in both Excel Desktop and on the IPad Excel App. It would be great to have similar behavior for re-sizing the table on all three platforms (Excel Desktop, Excel Online, and IPad App). The add-in I am writing depends on Excel Tables having this functionality…

  11. Show "X of Y records found" after Filtering similar to Desktop

    Please add the information readily available; on the desktop version, when you filter or select a number of cells or columns, Excel tells you at the bottom how many cells there are available and you do not have to select manually to find this information. In this current version online, it appears you have to manually select to see how many columns you have available after filtering. If I have one that filters to a few hundreds...that's still a LOT of work to do to select all the cells before you are given a count. Please add this functionality to…

  14. Is there any method to perform "filter and sort by colors" in a table?

    Is there any method to perform "filter and sort by colors" in the following table?
    Actually, I have already waited for many years about the "sort and filter by colors" function. Why is there not any improvement about such basic function?

  15. Wish we could sort without having to undo merged cells. It should allow us to sort but the merged cell has to sort a a complete cell

    have the ability to sort merged cells along with those that may not be merged with it but the information goes with that in the merged cells
