  1. Conditional Formatting window enlarge

    Allow Conditional Formatting window to be expandable, when you have dozens of options it's a nightmare to navigate when viewer can't be expanded. Thanks

  2. Add red to theme colors within Excel Online

    Rather than having two columns of blue within the offered theme colors, perhaps add a column with shades of red. Within a shared workbook in which multiple collaborators are editing data, it would be helpful if a slightly wider range of colors were available.

  4. Expand conditional formatting to have more options and colors

    I'd like to be able to create my own conditional formatting and specify the colors that my team is used to at work. Having to open the workbook in Excel defeats the purpose of even having an online version.

  5. X and Y axis scaling

    Make it possible to manually adjust axes scale. This is extremely important for most applications.

  6. Please enable Formatting of Borders!

    Cell formatting has NO provisions for changing border line style and colors. This is very frustrating and is making Excel online very limited and virtually useless for my employee schedule sheets.

  8. Strikethrough Selected Text inside of Cell

    I would like to strikethrough selected text within a single cell. Currently in Excel Online there is a strikethrough tool but when used it can only be applied to the entire cell.

  11. The online excel does match with the regular excel. Therefore I have to enter my information in the online as well as the regular excel.

    The information should be able to transfer from the online excel to the regular excel. If you forget that you are working in the online excel program the information does not transfer to the share Brandon Wilde shared program causing one to have to enter the information in both place.

  12. Enable EU Date format DD-MM-YYYY in spreadsheet settings and not in Account Profile (


    1. Make all date formats available in Excel

    2. Make input equal with output, Excel transforms day into month and month into date when using EU date format.

  14. right align

    When right align is applied to a cell,
    and the column width is narrower than the text (without word wrap),
    then editing the text starts putting characters you type at the end of the text string at the START of the field....

    This also happens if the text is edited while the column is wider than the text string, then the column width is reduced
    The only way to fix this is merging cells. This is an anomaly and needs to be fixed (not an issue in Excel Desktop)

  15. Conditional Formatting select multiple rules

    To delete / manage rules you need to do one by one which is very slow if you have many (inadvertently due to copy pasting cells). Selecting multiples at once would be a big help. Thanks

  16. For the love of god please make it so that email addresses don't automatically hyperlink

    For the love of god please make it so that email addresses don't automatically hyperlink. It's incredibly annoying and ruins the formatting.

  17. Simplified ribbon - change to Frequently Used

    I love the Simplified Ribbon - create it so that it can be modified to frequently used - either permanent setting, or varying: as the user interfaces, e.i., frequently used formatting settings update on their own.

  20. Try and align the ribbon items in Excel online with the same ones that are present in the offline version

    'Page layout' tab is not showing on online Excel.
    3 D charts are not present on online version but are offered on offline version.
