  1. Row based Date stamp function capturing when data is changed in that row.

    Provide an Excel function that date stamps a row when any change is made to data in that row (other than the date stamp column). This is exceptionally useful when maintaining membership data, inventory records etc.

  2. CELL function added to online

    In the desktop version of excel,

    =MID(CELL("filename",$A$1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",$A$1))+1,255)

    is the only way to find the current sheet name. On Excel Online, the function CELL does not work.

  3. Add ability to reference a cell in another sheet with a simple click (like the desktop version)

    In the desktop version of excel, I can reference a cell from another sheet in my formula simply by clicking to that tab and cell. For example to make ='Sheet2'!A1 , I simply have to hit "=" and then click to the tab and cell I want in the formula.

    In Excel Online, it is not as user friendly. In order to achieve that reference in a formula, I would need to type out the entire formula, in the process clicking back and forth to remember which cell I am referencing.

  4. Enable VBA for Excel Online

    Enable VBA for Excel Online. Others have suggested a scripting language like google sheets has (which is javascript). No, keep it VBA.

  5. Allow the time and date to be corrected or the time zone to be adjusted in Excel Online

    Not so much an idea as a fix. MS should make it so you can correct your timezone (time and date) within Office Online so time and date related formulas are correct.

  6. Set range name & restrict to some specific user for edit

    I have been using Google sheets and that gives the option to set range names and restrict each range with some specific shared user so that no other user could edit the range data. This feature does exists in MS Excel but Excelonline does not have the option to set range name and to restrict it. This seems very disappointing as I have to share sheets among multiple users with 'user allowed only' ranges & I am unable to convert my online sheets from Google to Microsoft. I am looking for this feature as I am using my Microsoft account…

  8. Name management needed

    Please port name management to Excel on the web, so that we can name tables and ranges and use the names in formulas.

    Add ability to define named ranges on the web. Excel is useless to me without this. :-(

  10. in normal Excel you can Ctrl+click on different cells and see the total or average of these cells ...... Excel Online only allows you to seq

    In standard Excel you can Ctrl+click and select various cells at random and see the sum or average of these cell value. Online only allows sequential cell selection for this. Is this coming?

  17. Array Formulas should be able to be calculated in Excel online.

    Array Formulas should be able to be calculated online.

    To recreate the Query function in Google Sheets requires the following formula in Excel:
    {=IFERROR(INDEX('General Ledger'!E$2:E$1000,SMALL(IF('General Ledger'!$C$2:$C$1000='102'!$B$1,ROW('General Ledger'!E$2:E$1000)-ROW('General Ledger'!E$2)+1),ROWS('General Ledger'!E$2:'General Ledger'!E2))),"")}

    Already quite cumbersome when compared to Google Sheets:
    =QUERY('General Ledger'!A2:H , "Select A, B , E, F, G, H Where C =" & B1)

    But when it doesn't even calculate in Excel online it's pointless as a Google Sheets replacement! I'm trying to build a basic accounting spreadsheet that can be used online that integrates with other online features I'm building.

  18. Copy conditional formatting formulae

    When using a formulae with row cell references in a conditional format copying the cell's format down should adjust the conditional formatting formulae's cell references accordingly to use the new row's cells unless I have the $ symbol.

  20. Improving online Excel functions

    Hi, i have been using Office 365, the issue with Excel online is that its functions and formulas are not working accurately. while i run sum function and selecting cells one and another so it does not select it, rather then select the whole range.

    hope to see fixed this issue.
