    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.

  2. Excel survey needs to capture email address/user name for respondant

    There doesn't appear to be a way to automatically capture the user name/email address of the respondent to an Excel O365 survey. This means I am having to create an extra question filled with people's names to capture this information which reduces the value of the survey.

  5. Excel online survey form for mobile

    If the answer can only be a date then make a calendar appear to make it easier to select your answer. Having to use a virtual keyboard to type out a date is pretty troublesome especially for people who are accustomed to different date formats.

  7. Comment section

    Hi
    I would like a return facility in the comment box which isn't there at the moment for larger comments

    Also it would be better to have only one comment visible when I click on the comment box rather than all the comments boxes being visible at the same time

    Thanks for posting. This is a bug we found and have fixed internally. It is in the process of rolling out through rings of validation and should be in production in the next week or two.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    You can already set the font, and font size in Excel Online – you’ll find the controls on the Home tab of the Ribbon (make sure you are in Edit mode by logging in and clicking “Edit in Excel Online”

    Cheers,

    Hi Tony,

    You can already edit spreadsheets in the browser. All you need to do is upload your file to OneDrive.com (or your O365 account); make sure you are signed in to the browser with your Microsoft Account (@hotmail.com, @outlook.com, etc.) and then click on the “Edit” button and choose “Edit with Excel Online”

    Cheers,

  12. Allow easy embeding like Word & PowerPoint

    Word and PowerPoint online have embedding options that generates an embed code for you to embed documents direction into other websites. It would be great to have that for Excel as well. While you can manually create a working embed code, it'd be much easier as an option just like with Word and PowerPoint!

    Great news – we have this functionality already. In Excel Online, click on the File menu in the Ribbon, then Embed.

    Hope that helps,

    Hi Rui,

    You can already change column/row width/height in Excel Online by hovering over the header border and dragging to the size you’d like.

  14. CSV import exceeding row limit

    Allow CSV files that exceed the row limit of Excel to be imported somehow (multiple sheets maybe). Even the function to start importing CSV at a certain row in the import wizard doesn't work properly

    Hi Colin,

    This is possible today using PivotTables (import the CSV directly into a PivotTable) or using Power Query or Power Pivot (which brings the data into the Data Model).

    I’m closing out the idea to release the votes back to you!

    Cheers,
