  1. find

    Currently when doing a "find" search, the program works pretty well as long as it finds what you're searching for. If it doesn't find what you are searching for, the cursor jumps up to the top left corner, in an empty cell, of the spreadsheet. It would be really nice if the cursor didn't move at all but the search command just returned a "not found" message so you quickly knew there was nothing in the spreadsheet, rather than trying to find your cursor & where it may have moved in a cell.

  2. Notificaiton

    It would be nice to have configurable notifications when a sheet connected to a survey form is updated (IE user submits new survey form)

  3. Full Screen mode should actually be full screen (just like a PowerPoint presentation is)

    In Excel I can build beautiful, dynamic charts, but I have to output these into PowerPoint for presentations. If Excel could actually be Full Screen (i.e. covering the menu bar at the bottom and not displaying the file name at the top), it would enable Excel to be used as a dynamic presentation tool by itself.

  4. Save As

    I have already downloaded an attachment but there is no save as feature so I renamed it and sent it on once I had amended but now I want to amend it differently for another person and find I cannot resave the original file to One Drive which is very inconvenient as I do not have Excel on the laptop I am using. I'm not trying again by using the preview feature to see if I can copy paste. If I had known I would have copied the original.

  5. Disable download option

    It is possible to open an embed xls file, by clicking button 1 or 2 in the attached file, in Office Online. Once in Office Online there is an option for downloading the file for any user or even if not logged in (button 3 of the other attached file). However, that option should not be available unless the user sets that permission.

  6. Present useful error messages

    Error: Exception of type 'Microsoft.DataProxy.Exceptions.HybridException' was thrown.. The exception was raised by the IDbCommand interface.

    This does not help me troubleshoot the problem.

  9. parentheses debugging view in formula bar

    Working with functions and formulae nested in parentheses is a huge headache for me. Some kind of indentation/tree view or a means of collapsing (and mouse-dragging) each parentheses pair about within a formula would make it easier to visualise and manipulate the hierarchy.

  16. Update Excel Spreadsheet in One Drive when new form response is received

    It's a nice feature to be able to see form responses in Excel, but it always forces a download of the Excel spreadsheet, when I would prefer to view my form responses in Excel online. I've re-uploaded to spreadsheet of responses to One Drive, but it's not dynamically connect to the form so it doesn't update. I would also like to receive an email when someone responds to the form. All of these features, I note, have been available on Google Forms for years...
