  5. Availability Offline

    I love Excel over Google Sheets, but I love Google's offline options compare to Microsoft.

    It would be great to have full availability offline to edit sheets without having to download an offline software to use. And automatic save whenever moving to a cell would be great as well

  6. Hide ribbon bar in Excel online

    Please allow to hide the ribbon bar in Excel Online.

    It is important to be able to prevent user from messing around with the sheet structure and even make the sheet not usable. It would be even better if only the owner can turn this feature on and off.

    Also, when user is using iPad, the ribbon bar takes up too much screen room

  7. Filter views

    When using Google Sheets to collaborate there is a filter view that allows you to set a filter view that only you see. This is very helpful when multiple people are in a file and you don't want to mess with the view everyone else is in. Something similar would make online excel much more user friendly.

  14. 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.

  17. Remove the "Download" option which strips content

    Currently Excel online has options for "Edit Online", "Edit in Browser", "Save a Copy", AND "Download".
    What is the purpose of the last option outside of the bad functionality that this option strips out some of the more advanced content in your file?
    Please just remove this "Download" option, as "Edit in Excel" and "Save a Copy" should be sufficient for all purposes.

  18. Comments, changes & sizing on the online version vs. desktop spreadsheet

    1. COMMENTS....if a comment is too long in a cell then it converts to #### on both the online sheet and the one on the pc too. I put a comment in a cell, NOT using the comment function and I lost it, it became hashtags ### on both. The comments on the online should duplicate the desktop, when you go to a comment in a cell and click on it, a pop up with ALL the comments pulls up on the right side, I don't and didn't want to see ALL, just one. Wish when you right click on a…
