  3. Customize the time zone in a workbook's settings and in the NOW and TODAY functions.

    When I use the NOW() function in Excel for desktop, it correctly displays US Central time, which is the time zone my computer is set to. When I use it in a new, blank workbook created in Excel online, it displays it in US Pacific time (my Outlook online settings are set to Central time). When I use it in an online Excel workbook that's shared with my work colleagues in the UK, it displays it in GMT. This seems like it may be a bug that needs to be fixed, but I would also add two suggestions:

  4. Conditional Formatting formulas based on other cells

    I would like to format a cell based on the content or formatting of another cell. This would become even more useful if I could apply the same formula to another cell and have the relational cell references remain the same.

    Example: If $A1 contains "X", then I would like B1 to be filled red. I should be able to drag the formatting down the column so that all boxes in column B are formatted based on the content of their adjacent A cell.

    I did my wedding invitation checklist this way using another online spreadsheet application and it was…

  9. Allow drag and drop to be turned off in excel online.

    Drag and Drop can be turned off in the desktop version but not in the online version. This can cause many unexpected #ref errors when cells are moved on accident.

  14. Copy Values (and formulas) and paste the formulas referring to those cells

    It would be great to not have to create an equal sign and toggle between tabs; instead, it would be great to just select certain cells and paste the formulas that would refer to those direct cells. So i copy values or formuals in columns A-E, and I paste formulas where each cell I pasted has a formula that refers to those cells

  18. When using VLOOKUP, allow table columns to be referenced rather than individual cells

    Currently in Excel Online you cannot reference table columns, only individual cells, making VLOOKUP functions difficult at best. The real answer is to put all of Excel 2016 into Excel Online so folks can share the document in real time and have multiple people working on it similar to Google Docs
