  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. Maintain hidden rows/columns in "sheet view" so other users are not affected by the change

    Sheets view offers a private view of the Excel sheet when sorted or filtered, another common change is hiding rows/columns but that currently affects all users when sharing document.

    Allow for row/column views to remain private in Sheet View so others are not affects.

  6. It doesn't have all functionality as desktop excel. Make Online excel = Desktop excel

    Data formatting could be made as easy as in Desktop excel. As we are very much used to mouse it will be better to have those functionality to copy paste & other functions. In simple words make Online version = Desktop version.

  9. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Excel Online Color Issue

    We currently have an issue where color formatting changes every time we click on a cell. Example - If we have two colors in a cell (blue and green) and double click the cell, the color will change to all black and we will lose our previous formatting. This is an important feature for our team because our colors indicate project progress.

  20. 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.
