  1. Split Cell Feature.

    Cells should be able to be split into two, instead of having to merge cells.

  3. Links Disabled

    "Links Disabled: Links to external workbooks are not supported and have been disabled."
    Excel should show us where the link is so we can fix/remove it. This is very frustrating trying to find where the broken link is.

  6. can formatting include format for IP address and MAC address.

    can the format for hexadecimal pair 1-f be separated by colons and octets 0-255 by period / full stop be included as a formatting tool for format cells, as you do for phone numbers or dates.
    we use Excel spreadsheets as forms for identifying MAC and IP address and linking them to a device.

  7. make rows/colums invisible related to another data.

    I was needing to relate data to rows and make it disappear, like this: I have data in several rows and columns, where one column will say un-enrolled / enrolled, then I need the rows that says un-enrolled for the following columns to disappear when copy pasting and to look blurry within the worksheet, but an option/button to have/see it available as needed.

  12. Be able to set default row height in Excel

    Hi - RIght now in Excel, depending on the default font and font size that you choose, Excel automatically assigns a row height. For example with Arial 8, the default row height is 12. I like 15. It would be great if you could set that in the default settings so that when I create a new workbook, it automatically comes up with Arial 8 as the default font, with a row height of 15. T

  14. Allow us to make fillable templates with tab placement locked

    Allow us to make our own template inside the app without having to open in SharePoint. That way we can allow others to edit cells but not delete the formatting or move tabs around my mistake.

  20. you should make the school web one more like the real version.

    In OneDrive, I wish they would make it just like the desktop one, which has more features such as "fill down" etc.
