  1. Online scripting language

    Include a scripting language on the online version in the same way that Google sheets does. The ability to automate excel on the desktop version via VBA is where the real power of excel is, the online version is therefore significantly handicapped by the lack of any scripting language. Power users need the ability to automate spreadsheet tasks.

  2. Support UDF(User Defined Function) in Excel Online

    Without supporting UDF (User Defined Function) in Excel online, this service is pretty useless for any professional Excel users or any corporate environments where Excel VBA, Macros, Add-Ins are widely used.
    And, do not forgot, Google Spreadsheet already has it. A lot of people think UDF+Macro are the main advantages Excel Desktop version really has.

  3. Add developer tab including VBA

    Enable a developer tab so that users can add macros and edit the VBA behind them. JavaScript would be nice to be able to use as well.

  7. Hi, if you could make all the functionality of Excel (eg macros) work on the online version, that would be awesome. Thanks

    As above. Hi, if you could make all the functionality of Excel (eg macros) work on the online version, that would be awesome. We all work as a team online on these spreadsheets and the fact that only one person can have it on their office computer seems a little outdated to me. You're clever people, looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Nothings free in life, happy to pay my way, just need the product to exist. Thanks :)

  10. Office Addin Excel API JS - Insert Images programatically

    Hi,

    I am trying to add image in excel worksheet using JS api for office Addins.

    I came across this thread where users were asking to have option to support images insertion in office excel online.

    Now that it is possible to insert images in excel online from UI, do we have anything planned in office JS for addin in future releases to support inserting image to worksheet in excel online programatically?

    I didn't come across any documentation for achieving this functionality in

    https://dev.office.com/reference/add-ins/excel/excel-add-ins-reference-overview

    Please advice.

    Thanks in advance!

  12. How about a scripting language or help creating javascript to run macros in excel online

    Create a scripting language based on javascript or set up an excel class for users in the new edge browser - I know, easier said than done.

  17. A New Type of Macro: Command and Keystroke Sequences

    I would like to propose a new way to add automation in Excel apps that (a) does not require VBA and (b) does not clear the undo stack. To avoid confusing this approach with VBA macros, let's call them "Sequences" for now.

    The idea would be to create, name, and assign a shortcut key or custom QAT command button to a "Sequence" that is defined as a series of built-in Excel commands and/or key strokes.

    This type of feature for recording command or operation or "Action" sequences can also be found in other software (a certain popular photo editor, for…
