  6. It is useless... just get ride of it. It is good for nothing.

    Why you don't make something like a mini excel and discontinue the existing version? It is good for nothing.

  7. When timing out allow the user to download the file.

    When you timeout it should allow access to the file on the cloud drive and ability to download.

  8. Criteria for hiding tab error is too broad

    There is an error message in place to prevent hiding every tab that displays this message:

    "The workbook must contain at least one visible worksheet.
    To hide, delete, or duplicate the selected sheet(s), you must first insert a new sheet or unhide a sheet that is already hidden."

    This error also comes up when there is only one tab open and you select unhide.
    The only way around this is to open a new tab to unhide the other tabs. I would suggest reviewing the criteria for this error message so that it is not triggered with unhide.
    Thank you.

  14. Improved synchronization of MS Office apps between online and desktop versions

    Files often become out of sync even when opened by one person.

    I have a file that is said to be locked by myself when I have sved and closed all desktop and online versions.

    Results in wasted productive time and extra files and memory usage when a new file must be created to replace the file that is "stuck".

    Better editing of files online might eliminate the need to download onto desktop (e.g. graphic files do not render the same online as on desktop)

  16. I can't open a file that is "View Only" in On-Line Excel. Have to copy the file using File Explorer to make a copy of the file.

    We use files saved in SharePoint as "templates" for various things. The templates are set up as "View Only". If you try to save one to your one drive, it gives an error message or if you try to "Open in the desk top application", it gives an error. The only way I have been able to make a copy of a file like this is to use file explorer to copy the file from SharePoint to a different location, then open using the desk top application! Please fix it!
