    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    We are indeed working on PQ for Excel for the Web, as part of our efforts to make PQ work cross-platform.
    PQ JS APIs for Office Scripts are also part of this effort.

    Stay tuned for updates :)

  3. Excel Online - sheet print area

    Excel Online - Set Print Area - would be nice to be able to set a print area that can be saved, so that when others use the document, it will print the same way without having to redo all the settings.

  4. PivotTables created with Power BI using Analyze In Excel should work after publishing to Power BI

    Power BI's Analyze in Excel functionality allows Excel users on the desktop to create reports using PivotTables and cube formulas connected to a published Power BI dataset. However (and this is very hard to explain to customers) these reports only work on the desktop: even though Power BI allows you to publish Excel workbooks to an App Workspace, reports created using Analyze In Excel do not work after they have been published to Power BI because Excel Online does not support connections to Power BI. Please fix this!

  5. 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.

  6. Create and edit custom Conditional Formatting rules

    It would be really nice if we could create and edit custom rules for Conditional Formatting in Excel Online, similar to how we can in the Desktop version of Excel.

  7. Allow Multiple formating (fonts, color, Bold, Italic etc) in a single cell

    Our group just recently started using OneDrive for collaboration of an Excel document that we use on a daily basis. However, when trying to edit the document in the Browser, only one color can be applied to a cell. When using Excel in a local file, you can have more than one font color in a single cell by highlighting the targeted words in the cell and then choosing a different color.

    Recommendation: Make it possible to have multiple colors in a cell when editing an Excel document in browser like you can do in a local file.

    We have started rolling out support for workbook links to Excel for the Web. You’ll know you have it if you see the “Workbook links” button on your Data tab. Most of you should have it by now.

    To create new workbook links, copy from the source workbook and right click/paste links in the destination workbook.

    You can read more here:
