  1. Provide an option to disable Excel Online and default to desktop version

    Excel Online continues to disappoint new users and is hampering adoption of both SharePoint and Teams. Even if the library and site collection are set to "Open in client application", every Excel file that isn’t opened directly form the library in SharePoint or files tab in Teams, opens in the garbage online version, then has to be change to desktop, then user has to close the useless window of the online version.

    There is no option to open in the desktop version for a file attached to a planner task embedded in Teams, so then it is either jump through…

  2. side by side

    There should be a horizontal 'side by side' option similar to the vertical side by side on the desktop version. Effectively a 'top and bottom'.

    In our example, we display 2 worksheets from 1 workbook on a monitor. A lot of screen space is wasted with all of the tabs, headers etc. Displaying 2 worksheets top and bottom (or side by side as the circumstance requires) would be faster, cleaner and more beneficial.

  3. Allow both fixed rows & fixed columns at the same time

    Currently the user has the option of choosing a fixed row or a fixed column, but not both. Would be nice to be able to freeze 1st row & 1st column at least.

  5. Need style pattern in filling cells

    style pattern in filling cells is not visible in Excel Online. It's a problem

    We need to access options format cells (number / alignment / font / border / fill / protection)

    More features online !

  9. Zoom % should be actual

    The zoom % in Excel online is always 100%. It would be good to load the file with the actual view size saved in the file. Secondly, there is no zoom option available in the screen. We have to use the browser zoom option to do the same.

  11. Dark view for Office documents workspace without changing printout color

    Dark view for Office documents workspace without changing printout color.
    Docunents workspace should have a dark view option to allow editing in dark mode without that affecting the colors of the individual documents. (it should be a "View" feature and not a "format"feature.

  13. Whole word search

    Excel does not have the ability to search for whole words. I can search with Match Case or Match Entire Cell Content, but not for a whole word. For example, if I want to search for the word 'concur' it will also find 'concurrent'. To my knowledge, there is no way to exclude 'concurrent' from the search results.

  16. Contrasting color for slider bar at the bottom of the worksheets

    My worksheet comes in too wide to easily view; have to adjust the visible portion using the slider bar at the bottom of the screen. However, that's about the same color as the background-makes it harder to grab the "active section". Suggest you make the active section (that you need to select w/mouse) a contrast color so it stands out better.

  17. Enable Accessibility Mode for Excel as it is in Word

    The search in accessibility mode is much easier and it will save a lot of time. It can be turned on and off with a combination of keys.

  18. Keystroke To Switch Tabs

    Would like a keyboard-shortcut to move from tab to tab. Currently, mouse is the only way.

    I suggest CONTROL-SHIFT-PAGEDOWN, since CONTROL-PAGEDOWN is already used by web-browser tabs.

    thx
