  1. 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.

  2. 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

  7. "Option to save on onedrive and open in new tab" (for full screen) on for ms-office files like word and excel

    Option to save on onedrive and open in new tab" (for full screen) on for ms-office files like word and excel.

    Generally we need to save the file on one-drive first and then go to location and then open the file. If it can save in attachments and open that would make things easy.

  8. cursor visibility

    Please improve the online edition for cursor visibility? We still have a poorly visible cursor (green and has no editable options) in Office Excel 365 due to the restrictions on not allowing Windows schemes it appears. It may seem not to be a problem when looking at a simple sheet. But for very large complex sheet with colour this is major issue. This is a problem for partial colour blindness, and especially where the cursor must be used on coloured sheets. No contrasting colour is applied. Can we have an option to have -
    1). A larger cell cursor line…

  9. "Chat" function in Excel

    The "Chat" function should open on the recipient's display automatically when a message is sent when both parties are editing a workbook at the same time.

  13. Create Nested Tables in a Single Cell

    Some of the online spreadsheet tools have the ability to nest sheets inside cells which opens up a lot more flexibility at creating groups of information together.

    I would like it If you can click on a link within the cell which would open up a table which can have more information that would be directly linked.

    Currently you can do this with links to other sheets but if there is a lots of links then there will be a lot of sheets. Maybe even thousands +. So using sheets would be difficult unless there was a better way at…

  14. Row and column highlighter

    Row and column targeting highlighter. I would love a feature that when I point or click on a cell, the entire row and column is highlighted with a
    color that I can choose from a pallet. This feature would confirm when entering values into a specific cell, that you can ensure you are working on the right row or column because often sheets are very large and making sure you enter a value into the right cell can be a problem especially after hours of staring at a spreadsheet with many values. This feature can of course be turned on…

  15. Excel online when moving the horizontal scroll bar, often ended up moving the Sheets tab, very annoying.

    Excel online when moving the horizontal scroll bar, often ended up moving the Sheets tab, very annoying. Make the space a bit bigger or give us a way to lock down the position of the sheets.

  16. If the online version would work at all that would be great.

    I'd like it if I could open anything. Excel, pptt, and it would allow me to use it. It does nothing but freeze and stop in the middle. Basically expect only the basic use of this and even that is not working.

  20. Filtering should refresh focus in the document

    In Excel Online if we perform a search and afterwards filter for specific fields we are shown the lower part of the Workbook, many times consisting of blank cells.
    Desired behaviour here would be to have the focus in the Workbook shifted towards the top of the Document after performing a Filtering.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Have a file with multiple columns: Number [1..200]; Cities; Status[free busy].
    2. Search for 150. So the focus goes to the lower part of the page.
    3. Filter for one of the Cities.
    4. Filter for free in the 3rd Column.

    Result: The focus…
