  1. Make the Add-in Sidebar resizable, and allow for horizontal scrolling inside it as well.

    I am developing an add in and it is rather hard to fit everything I would like into the size available, it would be ideal if the user could expand the sidebar for a better view of the add-in. Furthermore, there is no convenient way (that I have found) to add a horizontal scroll bar to at least attempt to provide the type of functionality I would like.

  2. paste

    Have an option to change the default paste. For instance, I always want to paste values and formulas, but keep the destination formatting. This is particularly helpful when copying from website tables and pasting into Excel.

  4. Excel online should be able to change the color of text in a single cell without changing the text of all the text in that cell

    Developers, please allow us to change specific text colors (i.e. 1 word) in a particular cell but allow the remaining text in that same cell to be a different color. This is not possible on the online Excel but is on the standard Excel. I hope you guys fix this as its a major functionality issue for many users like myself.

  8. merging multiple cells

    what about when merging multiple cells, it is only merged, if the text is cut off on the boarder, to keep column length equal, and the cell in the row below is merged.

  9. Move columns instead of replace them

    I should be able to move existing rows/columns by clicking and dragging - WITHOUT having to replace an existing row/column.

    Google is SO MUCH BETTER at these basic, user-friendly functions.

  12. Allow unhiding of columns furthest left

    I cannot unhide columns that are furthest to the left on the web version. On desktop app, I can hover over the left edge of the left-most column to enable expansion of the hidden columns. If I hover on this edge in the web version, it does not allow me to double click to unhide the columns.

  13. Change the name, I went through lots and lots of apps to get on this Exel

    The name Exel does not fit this site and sharepoint does.
    HOW WEIRD!

  16. Freeze panes and Conditional formatting

    You should give freeze panes to more col/rows and conditional formatting in excel online is not conditional!

  19. Can you turn off the automatic hyperlinking of email addresses in a shared worksheet? Make it an option saved to the workbook.

    Shared Excel worksheets automatically change email addresses into hyperlinked version. Please allow a setting that globally TURNS OFF the hyperlink option.
    As you navigate through cells, it opens new web tabs due to hyperlinks.
