  3. It would be really useful to have the ability to create shortcuts on the Teams landing page to quickly access regularly used files.

    Many of my regularly used files in Teams are many levels deep so navigating to them can be time consuming. Having the ability to create shortcuts on the landing page in Teams would save a lot of time as you could quickly access these files instead of laboriously having to drill down though each level.

  4. Provide an option to always use the App and never use the online version.

    SharePoint tends to open the web version. Better to default to the app and never the web version for users who have no use for the web version.

  9. Provide a way to set file(s) to always open on the desktop application.

    It's extraordinarily frustrating when, day after day, I have to wait for Web Excel to decide it can't open my macro-enabled personal Excel spreadsheet, then have to tell it twice that, yes I really DO want to open it in the desktop app, then wait for it to do so. I understand using Web Excel for files with collaborative authors, but it's a waste of time for many files that will never involve collaboration, especially when they use features of desktop Excel which might never be implemented in the web version. That's not "productivity" software.

  10. When I open the excel from Online to desktop version. The online browser should close.

    After I open the excel from online to desktop version. The online version should close because it creates 2 copies of the excel on my machine. When we have to work with multiple excels this creates confusion as we see duplicate excels on the laptop.

  12. ACTUALLY GET VERSION CONTROL TO WORK.

    It's been what- a decade or more? - since you made ShitePoint. How about you actually get it integrated into Office and Windows Explorer.

  13. Save As Should Give Option To Remove Existing File

    Here is my scenario where I'm always ending up with duplicate workbooks and have to delete the original.

    I often start an excel sheet and it auto saves it to my OneDrive. But being that I intend for that workbook to be saved to Sharepoint. So when I do a save as to get it to Sharepoint, I get a duplicate file. I get the original auto saved on my OneDrive and then the one on Sharepoint that I did the Save As with (the only one I really want). So now I have 2 workbooks and I really only…

  14. Excel online opening to the last cursor spot vs top left

    When I open excel online it opens to an odd spot in my document. It appears the last spot my cursor was left is now the top right of where it opens. For example if I'm working in a document and leave my cursor on the far right of my page (there is no more data on the right) the next time I open it my file opens with that far right cell now as my top left cell shifting my document. When working in multiple files and opening and closing it makes the constant having to scroll extremely annoying.…

  17. Identify individual using spreadsheet opened in Excel on their computer when in SharePoint

    When in SharePoint, someone has an excel file open and others cannot update until they close the incident on their computer. Best to update spreadsheet in browser, but when it is opened in Excel on their computer, allow the name of individual so team can ask them to close it.
