  1. Make the keyboard shortcuts the same between Excel and Excel online.

    In Excel hitting Ctrl Y on the keyboard is the command you can use to create multiple new lines in a spreadsheet. In Excel online the Ctrl Y combination means "redo" Making commands like this between the two would be helpful.

    Thank you for voting and providing feedback on Excel Web keyboard shortcuts.
    We’ve merged all shortcuts related asks into this one.

    The Excel team recently added a set of Excel shortcuts to the web version. All available shortcuts can be found in the Help tab → Keyboard shortcuts.
    In addition, with the new ability to override browser shortcuts, you can now use even more Excel shortcuts in this version.

    We are still working to address your feedback, and we will appreciate if you can comment here which Excel shortcuts are still missing for you in the web.

    Thank you,
    The Excel team.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow Multiple formating (fonts, color, Bold, Italic etc) in a single cell

    Our group just recently started using OneDrive for collaboration of an Excel document that we use on a daily basis. However, when trying to edit the document in the Browser, only one color can be applied to a cell. When using Excel in a local file, you can have more than one font color in a single cell by highlighting the targeted words in the cell and then choosing a different color.

    Recommendation: Make it possible to have multiple colors in a cell when editing an Excel document in browser like you can do in a local file.

  4. Links between spreadsheets in Excel Online

    It would be nice for links between spreadsheets on my One Drive to work.

    We have started rolling out support for workbook links to Excel for the Web. You’ll know you have it if you see the “Workbook links” button on your Data tab. Most of you should have it by now.

    To create new workbook links, copy from the source workbook and right click/paste links in the destination workbook.
