  1. Add Query (See Google Sheets for functionality)

    Query is a lot easier to use when performing aggregations than VBA.

    =Query({Shee1t!B2:E}, Select Col1, Col2, Sum(Col4)/1048576 Group By Col1, Col2 Where Col2 IS NOT NULL Label Col1 'Cluster', Col2 'Index', Sum(Col4)/1048576 'Size (MB)'
    -> Would take data from Sheet1, cell range B2 upper left to last row of E), and for each combination of values from Col1 (matching the first column in the original cell range, which is column B ) and Col2 (column C) sum the corresponding values from Col4 (column E).

  2. Make the online version as fast and with ALL options as desktop so I don't have to download every excel

    Make the online version as fast and with ALL options as desktop so I don't have to download every excel IT sucks not to be able to apply auto import/export of data through a flow to the sharepoint version. That should be true for all online apps, its confusing to have them on Sharepoint and on your desktop because you can't make it work right on Sharepoint...

  3. Link to another tab in same sheet appears to be disabled in a shared file. Tried on PC and Mac. Commonly done in multi-tab spreadsheets

    I have a multi-tab spreadsheet that is shared in one-drive. Formulas need to link to data in other tabs. It's a common function used to create a total "tab" from several sub-tabs. Example: Global Sales tab summed from several Regional tabs.

    This appears to be locked when the sheet is shared. There is no clear way to unlock it and no clear help on doing so.

  4. Please make a formula to count the amount of cell colours for excel online.

    We define an items state by changing the colour of the cells with data in it. It can be done on excel for desktop by sing VBA. but that is missing on the online version.

    This would make the team work more efficiently and let me manager quickly look at numbers without having to count rows individually.

  8. LET function

    By when can we expect LET function to be rolled out in excel web? I understand that the function is still in beta and currently only available to a portion of Office Insiders but still I haven't faced any issues so far in the beta version and it saves a lot of time in writing long formulas which use repetitive arrays and calculations.

    My request to the MSFT team is to come out with a basic version of LET function for excel online even if it is not perfect.

  13. Multiple values in LIST feature

    I use Data validation>List feature with SumIfs to create a dyanmic dashboard. The limitation is that we can select only one value from the dropdown. Can we add a functionality where we can select multiple values just like pivot tables?

  15. In Online excel formulae on different should be applied . As of now have to keep both reference data in single sheet .

    Online excel to apply vlookup formula , data is to be maintained in a single sheet to apply the same . Data if present in multiple sheets , then formulae should be applied irrespective of data present in single sheet .
