  2. Allow me to change regional settings: date formatting (mm/dd/yy, dd/mm/yy), thousands/decimal separators (period vs comma), formula language

    Excel Online decides how to show dates and numbers and formulas based on where I live. I want to be able to choose how to display these Excel items. For dates, I might want mm/dd/yyyy, or I might want dd/mm/yyyy. My Excel formulas should be in the language of the application, and not based on where I live.

  3. Be like Google Sheets. Literally.

    That's it. Google's design, functionality, and reliability make it far superior.

  4. Don't expire sessions

    There is no technical reason to expire sessions whereas currently Excel Online (and word) get their sessions expired after a few hours. Please could the session model be fixed so that sessions expire only when deemed necessary for security reasons (at which point a re-login would be required) i.e. just like google docs.

    Automatically refreshing the page would be a short-term workaround.

    This problem prevents online applications having parity with desktop applications, even where the required feature subset is fully supported.
