Show userid of who has the document locked or checked out and time its been checked out
edit spreadsheet online is locked...it'd be nice to show userid of person that has the document checked out. This way you can send them a reminder to check it back in for online edits
Happy to share we have added the info who is locking the file.
Would be nice to know who has, or where is a document that is already open.
The following error "Unfortunately, the workbook needs to be closed or checked in before you can edit it. If everyone uses Excel Online, you can work on it at the same time." can be refined with at least the name of the person who checked the file out.
I came here to say exactly this so was glad to see that it is already a hot idea (77 votes at time of writing). Surely Excel Online *knows* who has locked the document, so surely it makes sense to tell us?
Please make this change. Its desperately needed.
Agree - We definitely need this.

When someone has locked a document you need to display the name of the individual. Otherwise users waist time trying to find out who has locked a document. THIS IS NOT TIME EFFICIENT

When a sharepoint file is in use, we should be able to see who has it and/or boot them out.
when showing error for spreadsheet already locked by another user, it should also highlight the name of the user who has locked it.
