  1. Make Removing Table formatted cells easier

    Allow for removal of table formatting in sheets where the target table was copied to. When a table is copied from another sheet, "Clear Format" does not seem to remove the underlying formatting object. This makes it difficult to change the format area of the existing table, or clear out the color scheme and other table type encoding within the sheet.

  9. Quick pick filtering

    Desktop excel has the unique set of values as a tickable list when you click the drop down on a table column. This is very useful, and a real timesave compared to using the "contains" etc options in the filter context menus.

  14. Sort columns and update formulae

    e.g. column A cells have formulae with cell references to their row. Column b has strings. when I sort data by column B, the references contained in column A aren't adjusted to refer to their new row number.

  15. Show "X of Y records found" after Filtering similar to Desktop

    Please add the information readily available; on the desktop version, when you filter or select a number of cells or columns, Excel tells you at the bottom how many cells there are available and you do not have to select manually to find this information. In this current version online, it appears you have to manually select to see how many columns you have available after filtering. If I have one that filters to a few hundreds...that's still a LOT of work to do to select all the cells before you are given a count. Please add this functionality to…

  16. Ability to decrease Excel Table Size in Excel Online

    Right now, Excel Tables can only be increased in size in Excel Online (adding rows or columns) by selecting the table and dragging the corner downward or to the right. Strangely, the table size cannot be decreased by dragging left or up. This contrast to having the ability to decrease the table size by dragging in both Excel Desktop and on the IPad Excel App. It would be great to have similar behavior for re-sizing the table on all three platforms (Excel Desktop, Excel Online, and IPad App). The add-in I am writing depends on Excel Tables having this functionality…

  18. Move Data in tables to create gaps

    I would like to be able to add information in between two sets of data. By dragging the information down. But the error says I cannot shift the cells down due to it interfering with the table. Can this be adjusted?

    Filter in offline version automatically generate the option in the drop down menu. But the online version does not support it. Please add it!

  20. Advanced Sorting of Sheets Within a Workbook

    It would be very useful to sort the sheets of an Excel workbook according to chosen data within the sheets. For instance, if a workbook contained sheets with stats for a group of baseball players, it would be useful to arrange the sheets according to a particular statistic that is common to all sheets.
