  1. Maintain hidden rows/columns in "sheet view" so other users are not affected by the change

    Sheets view offers a private view of the Excel sheet when sorted or filtered, another common change is hiding rows/columns but that currently affects all users when sharing document.

    Allow for row/column views to remain private in Sheet View so others are not affects.

  2. Excel Desktop vs Excel Online - online version should have all/most of the same features

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Paste/Formatting - When pasting into the online version, the format doesn't stay.

    ~ Sorting - There are very limited sorting options in the online version.

    ~ Copying data. I have about 300 lines of data that's about 10 columns wide and am unable to copy it so that I can paste it into another document and sort it the way I need (since online version has limited options for sorting, as mentioned…

  3. Allow for custom colors or an expanded option set for choosing colors for text, cell backgrounds, and tab labeling.

    The color palette for excel online is extremely limited. Expanding the palette or allowing for a color wheel selection option or HTML color entry would be fantastic.

  7. Please add support for "More Colors" in both the cell formatting AND Conditional Formatting options

    Being limited to specific pre-defined colors is a pain when I want to do something like color-code each month of the year and there are only around 8 color families to choose from. Being able to set this manually via the cell background formatting option would be nice. In addition, being able to specify conditional formatting that goes beyond the red/yellow/green options would be very helpful. Google sheets can do this and I don't understand why this isn't even an option.

  8. hyperlink on single words like google sheets, formatting, and hyperlink interface file directory with link


    1. URL can be linked to single words in google sheets, thus allowing to click the cell without navigation, or better looking format.


    2. conditional formatting if it cell contains hyperlink, to prevent other conditional formatting from undoing the normal hyperlink formatting


    3. the hyperlink interface that can look at files like in the desktop. But use the URL link instead of file Path link. So folder can move and not break linking and open correctly from all interfaces (instead of thinking its a download if done wrong)

  9. Need a button in the ribbon or Quick Access Toolbar for "Center Across Selection"

    Merging cells makes copying and pasting of those cells difficult, so I almost never merge cells. Instead, I use "Center Across Selection" extensively, but it requires 4 mouse clicks or 9 keyboard clicks. Please provide a standard button for this in the ribbon, or at least a command icon that I can add to my Quick Access Toolbar.

  11. Please consider allowing multiple font colors in a single cell of an Excel Online spreadsheet. Thank you!

    We use excel online with Huddle to allow multiple users make daily updates to a file. It would be nice if the functionality in regular Excel, that allows multiple font colors in a single cell, were incorporated into Excel online. The way we would like to use it, the user would highlight changes made to a cell in red text, while the existing text remains black. Thanks for your consideration.

  13. Be able to change formatting for single word in a cell (Ctrl H)

    Ctrl H - change format for a single word within a cell rather than apply the format change to the entire cell's content.

  14. Row height adjusts for merged cells as well

    Very simple: unmerged cells, when wrap is enabled, result in the row height adjusting accordingly. Wrapped cells do not, which is a formatting gap.

    Please can merged cells, enabled for text wrap, adjust the row height just like for a single cell meeting the same conditions.

  15. Make standard colors primary instead of Theme Colors.

    Have the option to have Standard Colors and its gradients as the working colors or have Theme Colors as working colors. I prefer the Standard colors as they match my other applications and the Theme colors do not.

  16. Add the option to use formulas for conditional formatting

    What we really need is consistency between Excel 365 and the desktop version. I love the Xlookup function, and since it is only available in 365, I am stuck working on the web. That means that I need other options, such as using formulas for conditional formatting and more color options, on the 365 version as well. I read that more color options are available in 365, but I haven't seen them yet.

  17. I HAVE FOUND A WAY!!

    After a few years of using excel and uploading the excel schedules on dropbox (for work purposes), our text titles were too long for the columns, which meant some letters went underneath each title and it was so untidy !

    I tried searching to see if there was a way around this as there was no text orientation option.... BUT finally, we have sussed a way so the text direction goes down (at a 90 degree angle), please see attached.

    It was quite simple so thought I would share, in case others wanted to also try this.

    If you go…

  18. New Bug Found with: Locked sheets that have Format cells enabled

    A new bug has appeared in online Excel (was introduced in the last month or so):

    When a Worksheet is Locked, but with Format cells allowed, cell Interior color cannot be changed.

    Additional Information:
    This worked previously (i.e. interior color could be changed), and continues to work in desktop Excel.

    Other cell formatting (front, bold, etc.) still works ok.

  20. Include more keyboard shortcuts e.g. Insert Row, enable ALT key

    Please enable In Excel on MS Teams CTRL +1 to access formatting commands.Please enable the ALT key as well to access menues. I cannot use keyboard shortcuts to insert rows and columns. Please consider shortcuts for inserting rows and columns - CTRL SHIFT + for example.Many of us who have used Excel for 25 years use keyboard commands to save our limbs from mouse induced strain and because they are so quick. Please consider these.
