Support Background image for excel worksheet in Excel Online
We have an option to set background image for Excel worksheet using Page Layout > Background. We can add images like confidential, draft copy etc. using this option we can show the image on every page on excel worksheet.
This option works fine in Excel desktop application. However, in Excel Online, it says this feature is not supported.
Even in SharePoint Excel Web access web part also the background image is not showing up.
It would be nice if this feature is enabled in Excel Online/SharePoint Web Access web part too.
Alternate options for background option would be setting up word Art picture. This will show up only on one page and not on all pages. We need to set/remove the picture on every page which is too complex.
Another option would be setting up the picture in Header and footer. However, it will be visible only in page layout view NOT in Normal view.
So, kindly enable the background picture option in Excel Online.
We don't have a Java Team onsite so I am using Excel/SharePoint/OneDrive/Excel Online to report Live Metrics to 500+ people at present. The backgrounds that I have in the Excel App would really add a bit of flair to the way I report out through the online version (which refreshes much more efficiently when lots of people are accessing it)
same with me ****** hahahahaahaha

I love that excel allows you to add a background.
If done correctly, a background image will transform a boring document into something wonderful.
Moving this option to OneNote, Excel Online and Teams (sharesite) would be a game changer.
