  1. save draft comments

    Excel online should soft-save draft comments. In other words, if I accidentally close a comment box while typing (which is as easy as hitting the esc key), the comment draft is gone forever.

    It would be nice if the comment were stored, even locally, so that I could resume editing the comment without having to start writing the comment all over again.

  2. Provide the name or email of the person who has the shared worksheet open so that you can ask them to close it.

    I get a message that someone has the worksheet open and I cannot edit it. Often people stay in something without realizing it. we need to be able to contact that person and ask them to close it so additional edits can be made.

  3. We really need to be able to create table names in Excel to be able to click and copy tables down the column without having to modify the co

    I used to use Excel Desktop. I would create names for cells and use the names in formulas. After that, I could copy and paste the formula down the column without having the formulas down each column. For example, If I were creating a % formula that needs to compute the row divided bt the total of the row

  14. 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

  15. Navigate to checkout option if required

    If a file must be checked out before editing in browser, can you navigate the user to the checkout option? Do this for all browser files. (It seems to happen organically in some cases but not all. I'm ready to edit, I see the message it's read only mode, why not help a person out by allowing checkout at that point? Frustrating.

  19. if its too large to open online, give the ability to open in excel. the download but implies you're getting a local copy only.

    if excel file too large, click "open in excel" button. the download button implied youre getting a local file and changes wont be saved to the sharefile document.
    Alternate - "open in file explorer" and do what you want from there.
