  2. enable check in check out excel & lock unlock on one drive excel online instead of sharepoint.

    some column of excel doc we shared to everyone is locked, & can be unlock by admin for editing only.
    problem is missing of the check in/out & lock function will duplicate the file if we edit in local onedrive folder.

  3. Add "insert.." , "delete" , and "clear contents" to right click options in onlne version.

    If I want to add rows to only a few columns in the middle of a sheet I have to switch to full version of Excel. I do this very frequently, so I miss this feature. As for clear contents, I can't highlight multiple cells and delete all at once. In full Excel I can do that with right-click and :delete contents." I would rather just be able to highlight all cells and hit "delete" have all deleted.

  4. SAVED notification.

    When editing a document, whether Word or Excel, to show a message in the middle of the screen, or the top, in a BRIGHT COLOR, that ensures that our document was saved. :)

  6. formatting option are poor... Atleast compare the existing outlook and try n replicate the same

    Editing tables and colour coding is still pathetic and even if you try copy from excel it comes as plain text.

  8. Please add data validation options for worksheets that are populated by surveys.

    If making updates to a worksheet that's populated by a survey, the cells aren't currently bound by the same constraints.

    Example: Say you have a question with yes/no options in a survey. That column in the worksheet doesn't automatically populate with "yes/no" options for data validation. This limits worksheet usefulness, editing and update ability, and can potentially wreck results, break charts and formulas, etc.

    Adding data validation both to Excel Online worksheet edit capacity and as an automatic part of Survey + Worksheet population would be very helpful.

  9. Do not lock the workbook when people want to edit it online

    When people would be editing it offline, then the people online could possibly edit it online

  10. Allow for autocompletion of typed text from a linked table (not just cells above the current cell).

  12. Wondering how co-authoring works with groups in Excel

    we have a group project that involves entering and editing about 30,000 rows x 8 columns of data in an excel sheet. I have been researching the co-authoring new function. Are there any limitations for mulitple users? We usually have around 3-5 people entering at the same time. Would this cause problems? we currently have gone away from Excel for this project and used Google Sheets. However, it does not seem very robust and there are frequent screen freezes and crashes.

  13. Give me the opcion to clear content.

    It would be easier to have the opcion when right clicking to clear content and to scroll to the left or right while shading for editing.

  15. Fix the small resolution dialogs, like Text to Columns, Edit Links and more

    Many dialogs are small and haven't changed since the days of 800x600 size displays. The Text to Columns dialog in particular only manages to show 5 lines and 63 columns using just ~450 * 80 pixels. I have a huge monitor. This is completely unnecesary. Other old dialogs can be resized, but still have default windows and column sizes appropriate for latter 1990s monitors.

    Please fix this dialog and any others that are either not capable of resizing, or have inadecuate defaults.

  16. Make it like google sheets where multiple people can type into a live file at the same time and see each other's typing

    Multiple people can see each other typing live and the document automatically saves itself while multiple people are live editting.

    Seriously, I just started a new job in O365 and I waste about 1 hr per day emailing documents back and forth that we used to live edit in google in my old job.
