    We are excited to announce that it is now possible to Duplicate worksheets in Excel Online.

    There are still cases where Excel Online will be unable to duplicate a worksheet. Most notably, in case either one of the following is present in the worksheet:

    • Images
    • Shapes
    • Charts

    Excel Online team is working to resolve these limitations.
    Please continue to leave feedback on the feature, to help us improve.

  3. Surveys should allow completion by several users at the same time

    Hello!

    I have a survey in Sharepoint that I send to all the new subscribers to my site, and I've received several complains for people who are getting an error when filling out the survey because "the file is being modified by another user".

    This doesn't make any sense. A survey should allow completion by any number of users concurrently.

    I had to move my surveys to Google Docs in the meantime because of this issue. Hope it gets fixed soon!

  5. Online survey (form) - add header graphic and footer, or at least a text description as a question type

    Insert a graphic to a header and also have the option of choosing to insert a text description so that we can format sections or add instructions. Page breaks would be nice too, for those long surveys.

  6. Embedded SharePoint Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar

    When embedding a Excel online file into normal CSS webpage using codes, Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar.
    The only way to get to the data to the right of the view port is to click on a cell and then use the right arrow key to scroll to the right.

    Codes referenced from this official article.

  7. Excel survey with automatic timestamp on each record

    When you get many responses it often is very important to understand WHEN a certain respons was submitted. For exampel if the same respondent has submitted multiple times and you want to sort out the last one of them....
    Add feature that automaically add a timestamp on each record.

  15. Ensure submit is not activated by pressing enter

    Many users tend to press enter to go to a new line and then pressing it automatically submits their survey answers even if they aren't finished filling it out. The survey should only be submitted by clicking on a dedicated Submit button.

  16. Command + Shift + Arrow Keys to Select Cells (Keyboard Shortcut Enhancement)

    In the desktop Excel app, users can use Command + Shift + up/down arrow keys to quickly select a set of cells without having to manually drag the mouse to select all of them. Please bring this keyboard shortcut to the Excel Online app as well!

  18. Allow find down to be found on search as find next or...

    Given the differences between excel online and the desktop app, i would suggest that things such as Find next be a bit more visible as options, or at least make a link to the keyboard shortcuts more visible.
