  1. Make the keyboard shortcuts the same between Excel and Excel online.

    In Excel hitting Ctrl Y on the keyboard is the command you can use to create multiple new lines in a spreadsheet. In Excel online the Ctrl Y combination means "redo" Making commands like this between the two would be helpful.

    Thank you for voting and providing feedback on Excel Web keyboard shortcuts.
    We’ve merged all shortcuts related asks into this one.

    The Excel team recently added a set of Excel shortcuts to the web version. All available shortcuts can be found in the Help tab → Keyboard shortcuts.
    In addition, with the new ability to override browser shortcuts, you can now use even more Excel shortcuts in this version.

    We are still working to address your feedback, and we will appreciate if you can comment here which Excel shortcuts are still missing for you in the web.

    Thank you,
    The Excel team.

  2. Links between spreadsheets in Excel Online

    It would be nice for links between spreadsheets on my One Drive to work.

  3. Allow me to change regional settings: date formatting (mm/dd/yy, dd/mm/yy), thousands/decimal separators (period vs comma), formula language

    Excel Online decides how to show dates and numbers and formulas based on where I live. I want to be able to choose how to display these Excel items. For dates, I might want mm/dd/yyyy, or I might want dd/mm/yyyy. My Excel formulas should be in the language of the application, and not based on where I live.
