  1. Word Wrap By Default for all cells

    Word wrap is not enabled by default. Usually we have to enable it one column at a time or cell at a time. Can we have it enabled by default ? (Option to disable can be there)

  2. Freeze first row in Excel by default

    In most spreadsheets the first row is usually headings. Can we have that row frozen by default (of course have undo allowed).
    Save everyone across the world the time to freeze that top row !
    Those that want column and row freeze options can do it manually.

  4. Allow user the ability to save a custom view, including the zoom setting and the exact cells in the x,y axis.

    When we open the workbook we need to be able to get to a preset View instantly without scrolling, regardless of the view that is seen upon opening. This is different than the ability to save filtered views, although the two options should work together.

  5. Custom Sheet View for Collaboration Should Have Option for Document-Wide Sheet View

    The sheet view setting is great, however each custom sheet view is restricted to that sheet only. If there was a 'custom document view' then I can preset a view for each employee who uses the spreadsheet.
    (E.G. in this case its for a job list, each sheet is a different client, there is a column called Job Manager, I want a custom filter so that each individual can select the view and only see jobs they manage across the document, rather than selecting on the sheet and changing view each time)

  7. Restrict editing sheet views by requiring the view to be saved

    Require a sheet view to be saved if someone adds a new filter within an existing sheet view so it doesn't modify the sheet view for everyone.

    Add an option to "Freeze up to Selected Column", not only the first column. Also, an option to "Freeze up to Selected Row".

  10. Can there be a lock option on the worksheets tab?

    Can there be a lock option on the worksheets tab? I work in recruiting and use multiple worksheets in a workbook and the tabs keep moving. This slows down my productivity when having to find the tab or relate it back to it's sister tab.

  12. Change cursor/selected cell outline color.

    The Green outline isn't always the best color for users and being able to change the outline color used to identify your currently selected cell would help immensely.

  14. Sheet view in online excel not working

    Sheet view functionality is amazing as its lets the user create their own private filters without impacting other users view. However if I create multiple sheet views with different filters , most of the time it displays default view regardless of the custom sheet view I select! I want to inform that , it worked perfectly in first day but started showing default filters there after.

  18. Master tab that shows all tabs in spreadsheet.

    Create a master tab in the lower left corner of the spreadsheet that allows the user to view and select any tab in the spreadsheet without having to scroll through the entire spreadsheet. We often create massive spreadsheets and scrolling is cumbersome. [This function is in Google Spreadsheet and it has saved time so often.]

  20. Audit history

    Since the workbook is accessed by multiple persons, allow for an audit history so changes made are documented. Helpful to track when errors made and additional training needed.
