  1. Add the capability to impose logic on Excel Survey questions.

    I love that surveys can be created in Excel online. I would use this almost daily if I could format the question logic in the same way that Google Forms allows. The ability to add labels and separate pages is also really necessary in order to make sophisticated surveys that collect complex information.

  3. 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.

  6. Lost functionality on "online Excel"

    . simple tasks like merging cells, or clearing a data filter are missing and the "how can I help provides no instructions for how to perform basic function in the app.

    Our group just recently started using OneDrive for collaboration of an Excel document that we use on a daily basis. However, when trying to edit the document in the Browser, only one color can be applied to a cell. When using Excel in a local file, you can have more than one font color in a single cell by highlighting the targeted words in the cell and then choosing a different color.

    Recommendation: Make it possible to have multiple colors in a cell when editing an Excel document in browser like you can do in a local file.

  18. Insert documents

    The ability to insert documents allows for more formatting capabilities without having to directly implement them in Excel Online.

    User Story 1:
    Bob creates a fancy workbook that requires some level of instructional documentation.
    Bob creates a new worksheet and starts merging cells in this complex labyrinth so that he may have a somewhat decently formatted documentation page.
    This wastes Bob's time.
    He could have done the same thing with a much lower level of friction and time spent by merely creating a Word document with the formatting, then inserting the Word document into the Instructions worksheet.
