Protect Range/Sheet, Collaboration Range/Sheet, Tracking history of workbook
There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Besides that, in comparison, Microsoft Excel Online doesn't have advanced features in the Google Sheets. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:
~ Protecting features only works in desktop version (not work online)
~ Microsoft Excel Only cannot protect sheets, but Google Sheets can protect sheets or ranges. Therefore, many users can collaborate together with high security in range/ranges, same sheet/sheets in a common workbook.
~ and so many advanced other feature in Google Sheets doesn't appear in Microsoft Excel
~ With Google Sheets, user can collaborate online and track history of workbook to go back (if need). This feature is so interesting and useful but have not appeared in Microsoft Excel Online.
