  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  8. Ctrl End or Ctrl Arrow Down should just make the spreadsheet jump to the end of available data instead of scrolling over all the rows.

    I'm working on a spreadsheet with over 7k rows, if I press Ctrl End or Ctrl Down, Excel would happily scroll through all the rows (unnecessarily) and take its time when all I wanted was for it to jump to the last row.

  9. Add the ability to view and edit Excel Online and other Office365 documents in full screen

    It's great to be able to view and edit Office documents in the browser without having to rely on the native applications, but it would greatly improve productivity if the user were able to work on files online in full screen mode, as currently ribbons for both browser and the office web app take up much of the screen real estate.

  10. Have a collapse button that hides EVERYTHING except the cells

    Have a collapse button that hides EVERYTHING except the cells - IE the internet bar, tabs, top of the excel doc, all the options and menus and formula bar - If I'm going to use Excel online rather than Excel proper, it's probably because I just want to read something and maybe add comments. But with all the extras at the top and bottom, the working field is very small, so I NEVER use it, and ALWAYS open in full excel... A collapse button would mitigate this, and still be easy to swtch back if a function was needed

  12. Ability to view full cell content in Reading View

    If the content of a text cell has not been wrapped, in reading view, there is no easy way to see the content of that cell if it is really long. If you made the Cell content bar visible but not editable that would be massively better, would also allow understanding of formulae used in a cell.

  13. Give an option to Stop Excel from auto centering the screen on a cell that I type in.

    Please have allow an option to stop Excel from auto centering the screen on a cell that I type in. It's makes things very unproductive when I need things to fit on 1 screen and as soon as I start typing in a cell on the right side "poof" forget about seeing anything important any where's else on your screen. This may be a feature that some people like but it needs to be something that can be turned off.

  14. Lock/Unlocking worksheet ordering.

    I am always reordering the worksheets by accident when changing sheets. We should have a way to lock and unlock the worksheet bar to avoid dragging them out of order.

  17. 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…

  18. quick access toolbar excel online

    Add a quick access toolbar in Excel online (or any application) where you can pin your favourite commands, functions & buttons. The same as we currently have in the desktop version on Excel

  19. Shrink the size of the top info banner and the Home, File, Insert, etc.. banners so we can see and use more of the page we are working on.

    Please shrink the size of the top info banner and the Home, Insert, File, pop up banners, so we can see more of what we are working on. Would be great if it was more like the original Excel program, but I understand work in progress. There is just too much at the top with limited space to work in atm. Thanks.
