  1. arrays

    It's probably going too far at this stage to ask for dynamic arrays online, although that would be great, support for CSE array creation is a must asap. Super stuff going on with Windows at the moment but cross-platform compatibility is a nightmare, so anything to help would be much appreciated.

  2. I want the SPLIT function. Suppose AA $ BBB $ CCCC is entered in cell A1 and you enter the following formula in cell A2: = SPLIT (A1, "$") Y

    I want the SPLIT function.
    Suppose AA $ BBB $ CCCC is entered in cell A1 and you enter the following formula in cell A2:
    = SPLIT (A1, "$")
    You can find AA in cell B2, BBB in cell C2 and CCCC in cell D2.

  7. NOW() Function

    If I am the editor of a spreadsheet and limit the iterations of the sheet to 1, I can time stamp a cell based on the adjacent cell input. Unfortunately, the time that is stamped is based on the time in what I assume is Seattle WA while I live in the EST zone. Those that share the file with me do not see EST but rather three hours earlier than that. Can we set a default time zone for this purpose?

  9. "unsupported auto update for huge excel files", improve update in the related Excel file ,while using Sharepoint locally.

    I would like to inform you that the reason for the delayed update in the related Excel file is due to unsupported auto update for huge files and pivot and other main features are not supported in the Online version of Excel. For instance, we have two separate excel files and need to link to each other. For the first time , it is updating , but when we close and open it again, we need to go and update values manually.

  11. Allow it to use cloud computing to power calculatioons

    Allow it to use cloud computing power so larger data sets can be analyzed faster (i.e. more than 1 million rows per sheet)

  17. in normal Excel you can Ctrl+click on different cells and see the total or average of these cells ...... Excel Online only allows you to seq

    In standard Excel you can Ctrl+click and select various cells at random and see the sum or average of these cell value. Online only allows sequential cell selection for this. Is this coming?

  18. =UNIQUE

    Google allows an easy function =unique(A1:A) to automatically exclude duplicate values in a given range or column, and displays the results wherever =unique is entered. There isn't an easy way to do this in excel.

  19. Add ability to reference a cell in another sheet with a simple click (like the desktop version)

    In the desktop version of excel, I can reference a cell from another sheet in my formula simply by clicking to that tab and cell. For example to make ='Sheet2'!A1 , I simply have to hit "=" and then click to the tab and cell I want in the formula.

    In Excel Online, it is not as user friendly. In order to achieve that reference in a formula, I would need to type out the entire formula, in the process clicking back and forth to remember which cell I am referencing.
