  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 Office Scripts to the native Excel Application

    I understand getting full blown VBA working on the web is extremely unlikely (impossible?).

    So - make Office Scripts run on native Excel (and other Office apps). That way we get

    1) One common development language across all Microsoft Office applications

    2) Support for Javascript/Typescript in native Office.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Office native platforms already supports JavaScript/TypeScript for the add-in (extensions) model. The built-in Office Scripts/automation is not yet supported.

    We do intend to support Office Scripts across other platforms and hosts. However, the priority and schedules for such expansion in coverage is not yet finalized. We are right now focussed on delivering it for Online platform with Power Automation support. Please stay tuned for future announcements to learn about the coverage.

    Thanks,
    Sudhi

  4. 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.

  6. Enable Office Scripts to refresh Power Query queries

    Allow Office Scripts to refresh Power Query queries. It'd be very helpful to automatically refresh data using Power Automate, but that platform cannot currently refresh data.

    Hello,

    Thank you for providing the feedback. Your input helps us in making the product better.

    Reg. Power Query refresh action – yes, this is in our backlog. We don’t yet have an API that can refresh a Power Query. We’re working with the product team to prioritize the API. I don’t have an ETA yet. But, we’ll be monitoring this closely and update our docs once the feature becomes available. Feel free to email me if you need more details.

    Thank you,
    Sudhi Ramamurthy

  11. 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 :)

  14. Make Excel Online support all features just like Actual Excel

    Make every feature supported in excel online just like the actual excel. Only then People will start using excel online.Unless Excel online is supporting all features, people wouldn't be using your cloud based platforms like Microsoft TEAMS.

  16. 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!
