Let me open shared file in local Excel 2016
Trying to open a shared file with Workbook Sharing activated - can't open because Workbook Sharing isn't supported in Excel online. Give me an option to open in local Excel 2016 license, or to sync the file to my local drive so I can open in local Excel license.
This is especially important for shared files over 30 MB. When we get the error "Sorry, we can't open your workbook in Excel Online because it exceeds the 30 MB file size limit" we need an option to "open in excel" or else the shared file can't be accessed at all
I think this is the same thing I was going to suggest. It seems that if you click a link when someone shares a sheet that has VB or macros (something not supported in Excel Online) in Firefox or Chrome, you don't get the button option to open it in Excel application. Using windows 7, it only appears when using Internet Explorer (I have version 11 installed).
So to add on to this, my suggestion is to have the "Open in Excel" button available when using FF or Chrome.
