  1. Give an option of specific excel files to be opened in the desktop version instead of excel online

    Currently Excel files that have links to other Excel files in SharePoint will not open in Excel Online, if the default in SharePoint is set to open excel is Excel online then an error is given. There needs to be an option to change the default application specific excel files are opened rather than global setting.

  6. Automatically open file in Excel desktop if the file is above 5MB

    Simple enough. Excel online throws an error when the file is above 5MB in size, and doesn't give the user any other options. Effectively, the file is inaccessible to the user. If the file is above the Excel online limit, have the file open in Excel desktop instead.

  13. Correct bug that sets formatting to US when editing online and prevents correct setting of data format - Change to UK but sets to Armenian

    The date formatting when editing in Excel online changes the format of a date field to US even though it was set to UK when created offline and uploaded. When you try to change the formatting back to UK, it seems to accept your instruction but the formatting displayed is not the one you chose. If you check the format again, it has been changed to Armenian.
    You have been aware of this bug since July last year and it still hasn't been addressed. This is a huge inconvenience to people in the UK as some dates may have been…

  20. Error when inserting rows or columns

    Inserting rows and columns works normally (normally...), but whenever inserting a row/column would affect more than one table, Excel returns "This operation is not allowed. The operation is attempting to shift cells in a table on your worksheet."

    To this I initially responded "Duh? I do that all the time, why doesn't it work now?" Normally it would just insert a new row/column, and shift the rest of the table over, but in this case it's complaining because it has to shift the contents of more than one table at a time.

    I don't really mind the mild inconvenience of…
