  10. Linking of excel sheets in multiple files using formulas in sharepoint.

    Working in single file is a basic thing. However linking of multiple excel files through formulas are not present in sharepoint. For example VLOOKUP(), SUMIF(), MATCH() e.t.c.

  11. Cell screentip formula

    Complex Excel-based business tools are often used widely in the organization or by clients. User guidance would be considerably aided (even more so than cell comments) by a new formula, or a modification to the HYPERLINK formula.

    Firstly, XHYPERLINK (like XMATCH) to allow users to exceed the 255 char limit.

    Option 1: New formula
    =XSCREENTIP(linklocation,[friendlyname])

    Option2: Hyperlink formula update
    =XHYPERLINK(linklocation,[friendlyname],[link_click])

    where the new [link_click] in the modified XHYPERLINK formula is TRUE or FALSE, false resulting in a non-clickable hyperlink (i.e. purely a screentip cell).

    In addition, to be able to concatenate this new function, for example: …

  13. Disable all "Tooltip Dialogues" Formula Bar, Toolbars, etc.

    When working in excel online, screen tips block view of formula bar and other things, no way to disable them. Must work like desktop app, cannot lock document to work in it (shared) this slows a lot down editing my formulas. Even a button to close the dialogue would help.

  14. Show the function wizard box on Excel for Office 365 (Microsoft Teams)

    When using standard desktop Excel a 'function wizard' dialogue box appears for, as an example, an IF function. It has three boxes where the user can input the query, then IF true, and IF false. As I am a teacher and use Microsoft Teams, it is unfortunate that this function disappears when pupils are completing Excel sheets online. It would be helpful if the Function Wizard Dialogue Box was in the online version.

  19. Function Library (book icons) in the Formulas Tab

    Basic and intermediate users may be happy to see all the book icons in the Formulas Tab (Function Library group) as we have in the desktop version, to help them to find which functions can be used. Even the mobile version has the categories there... This would be welcome on the online version too.
