  1. Excel Online Cell Movement After Enter

    When editing an Excel Online documents, hitting [ENTER] will drop you down to the next row, same column. Generally hitting [ENTER] will return you to the next row, but in the column your previous modified cell was in.

  2. Add ability to for Find dialog to find results across the entire workbook

  4. Add ctrl+click to select multiple cells on Excel Online

    I can not select multiple cells on excel online by pressing CTRL and clicking on multimple cells.

    This is a basic function that prevents people from using the online version.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  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.

  9. Give an option of specific excel files to be opened in the desktop version instead of excel online

    Currently Excel files that have links to other Excel files in SharePoint will not open in Excel Online, if the default in SharePoint is set to open excel is Excel online then an error is given. There needs to be an option to change the default application specific excel files are opened rather than global setting.

  13. Allow users to cut and insert rows in between existing rows

    Currently, when you cut and 'insert' rows, it pastes over existing rows and information. The insert function should insert the rows and move the existing rows down.

  14. Excel and word online check out documents

    If i view a document on a SharePoint site in Excel online and see a thing that I have to change things get a little cumbersome. The button "Edit" results in a message says that I have to check out tthe document, but no other option to close that box.
    I then have to go back to the library, check out the document, go to the document and open it once more.
    The dialogue box should have a question like; "Do you want to check out this document in order to edit it?" Answer options: Yes or No.

  15. 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.

  19. Allow Full Collaboration Only (Prevent File Locking)

    This idea is all over this forum for a very long time in different wordings. Clearly this is a huge issue.

    MS, PLEASE add an option for files stored on Share Point and One Drive to "Only allow editing in full collaboration mode". This would mean a file would only be editable in the desktop version of Excel if the user is running 2016 and properly signed in to their Office365 account within Excel, thereby preventing file locking for other users.

    If not the solution above, at LEAST allow us to set a file to "Edit in Excel Online Only".

  20. Improve filtering

    In the desktop version of Excel, clicking one of the column headers will display the filter options. This includes the free text search box which initially gets focus. This makes it very easy for users to click, type and hit enter to filter the data.

    Within Excel Online, similar functionality is available but it's much more tucked away. So more clicking and thus time is required to achieve the same result. Our users like the effectiveness of the desktop solution and would like to request a similar approach for Excel Online.
