  3. Excel Desktop vs Excel Online - online version should have all/most of the same features

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Paste/Formatting - When pasting into the online version, the format doesn't stay.

    ~ Sorting - There are very limited sorting options in the online version.

    ~ Copying data. I have about 300 lines of data that's about 10 columns wide and am unable to copy it so that I can paste it into another document and sort it the way I need (since online version has limited options for sorting, as mentioned…

  5. Using custom colors from a theme - bug in Excel 2016?

    When you select a custom theme which contains custom colors, you can used those colors initially only with shapes. By doing the following you can use them with cell formatting as well:
    1. Select a theme with custom colors
    2. Insert a shape
    3. Change the fill color with a custom color from the ribbon "home"
    4. Select a cell and you can change the color to a custom color as well

    If you do not follow steps 2..4 you can not use custom colors. Even more worse if you follow all steps and you want to use the context…

  7. I am looking forward to excel online matching the desktop version with it's capabilities!

    Sometimes the formatting on Microsoft online can be wonky. It's only in the desktop version (sorry if that's not the technical term for it!) where I feel really comfortable with the formatting and more options.

  9. Excel online needs to have all the same functions as regular excel.

    Excel online needs to have all the same formatting functions as regular excel. Its very frustrating to not be able to format your worksheet or the cells the way you want them to be.

  10. Allow for custom colors or an expanded option set for choosing colors for text, cell backgrounds, and tab labeling.

    The color palette for excel online is extremely limited. Expanding the palette or allowing for a color wheel selection option or HTML color entry would be fantastic.

  11. Use Office templates in new sheets instead of creating new workbooks each time

    It would be great to be able to use the templates for a new sheet on an existing workbook instead of always having to create a new workbook. I like to use the budget template for each month but instead of being able to place it in the same workbook just different sheets I have to create a new workbook for each month to use the budget template.

  14. Add more vibrant colours in the selection.

    When I fill colour in the online Excel cell, I only have limited option of selection. I want to use more colourful colours like existing Excel products. In the online version has a limited option and they don't look as good as I want it to be.
    I found that I often download the file, edit the file offline and upload the file again. This is not a problem if you are working on a project by yourself, but when you are sharing the same file with so many others, it becomes problematic. Can you please add some more options? …

  15. Multi user filtering without changing view of other users

    Generate the ability for multiple users to edit documents in Excel online and application where the users can filter for their screen only. This would allow for greater collaboration as multiple pieces of a project can be worked on in the same document without each users view being altered by one users filter.

  17. Make standard colors primary instead of Theme Colors.

    Have the option to have Standard Colors and its gradients as the working colors or have Theme Colors as working colors. I prefer the Standard colors as they match my other applications and the Theme colors do not.
