  5. Make Linked Images possible in Excel Online

    I have made a cool linked images feature, where a candidate's photo shows up (using a named range) when that candidate's name is selected from a drop down menu. But when I embed the dashboard online, the photo doesn't appear. Please make linked images possible. In fact, all of desktop Excel should be available in Excel online so that we don't waste hours building projects that can't be shared.

  7. Preserve text boxes in Excel Online

    And support text box linking to worksheet cells (at least don't remove the links created in Excel Desktop). This would help us a lot.

  8. Please add map charts

    I am an Office 365 subscriber and I can't understand why Excel Online does not have the map charts functionality. I thought the online version of Excel should be the most up-to-date version; and still, there is no way for me to make use of the very good map functionality.

  9. Bing map recognition of non-western countries have to be improved

    Wouldn't it be nice if Bing map will automatically recognize not only western countries in Business Intelligence tools of Excel???At least regions or states, major 25 cities of every country. Working with non-western maps is just a huge headache :-(((

  13. Custom Insert>shapes

    As a Civil Engineer, I use spreadsheets to produce calculations. Diagrams form an integral part of the calculations, and there are several simple shapes that I find myself having to draw over and over again, from the limited "building blocks' of the shapes built into Excel.

    It would be cool if custom sets of shapes could be added (e.g. for us Civil Engineers, 'I' beams, bolts, support symbols, "north" symbol, etc.).

    For Electrical Engineers, a downloadable set of Elecrical symbols, and so on.

  14. Mouse cursor size on large TV screens

    When you zoom out (Ctrl+MWHEEL down) everything gets smaller except the cursor. Even in Windows>Mouse settings you can only make the cursor larger. It would be nice if there was a way to customize by (%) on how big or small you would like your cursor to be

    Can you give some more detail on what you are looking for?

    Excel Online will already show pictures (JPG, PNG, etc,) that are contained in the file.

    Do you mean shapes? (rectangle, circle, etc.)

    Or, do you mean something else?

    Thanks,
    Dan [MS]
