  5. Be able to open excel files online even if it is with unsupported feature.


    • Should let us know which particular thing that sets off the unsupported prompt

    • Even if there are unsupported features inside the file we should be able to open the file ignoring the unsupported or opening it by creating a copy without the unsupported feature

  9. Make it easier to save to computer, not easier to save to the WEB.

    Let user determine where user wants to save a file --- like on Excel 2007

  10. Limitation of 50MB should be increased

    The limitation of 50MB makes Excel for the web useless for our purpose, it should be increased to at least 400MB, or be made adjustable for the company.

    Furthermore is the error message misleading and confusing, it says that the data model is optimized for online viewing and that one can press cancel to view, but it leads to a blank screen.
    It should just say "The report is too big for Excel for the web to open, please open in Excel app", and then a button to open and cancel to go back.

  13. Encrypted workbook in windows unable to open on a mac

    Currently, working from the office and home. At the office we use windows and when i am at home i use a mac. Unfortunately, if i encrypt a workbook in windows, i only have access to read-only the workbook on a mac. I've attached a photo of what windows has access to and missing from mac version. I spoke to someone already and there is nothing that can be done. Case# 1004012456 This would be a very helpful upgrade due to some of us working from both home and work.Hope this is an easy fix. Please advise.

    Thank you,
    Edwin

  14. I have three "Document folders" . I have a One Drive, Local PC and Default.

    Please provide colorful icon options for External, System and Manual Folders. We should not need to use brute force memory to locate our most recent version of a file.

  16. Allow online EXCEL 365 workbooks to open at Sheet1!A1 every time or allow us to define it in the URL

    Online shared Excel 365 workbooks appear to open to the last cell a user clicked. This is no good if we are trying to display information to a team.

    Could you please give us the option to open sharepoint docs at sheet1!A1 as with the desktop Excel.
    or failing that, allow us to specify cell sheet1!A1 in the sharepoint URL to that workbook

  17. Keep Working on Collaboration

    After using Office 365, then G Suite, now Office 365 again, you have made some great strides in the online collaboration.

    We are frequently running into glitches, however, when opening the synced file from the desktop. Autosave switches to "Off", and we are unable to save new changes to SharePoint without going to the web, then opening the web version to the Desktop version.

  19. I can't get in!

    I have to be on Teams for work, but I can't open excel files from Teams in my personal version of Excel. It's infuriating.

    Just let me open it!
