  1. Pre-set Sheet views available to all users. Ability to transfer same Sheet view filter settings to other files with same layout.

    It would be practical to set up a number of standard sheet view in Excel Online that would be immediately available to any user accessing the file. To avoid having to set the sheet view for each individual file you create it would also be great if these sheet view setting could be transferred to new files with similiar lay-out/column headers

  3. Allow zoom feature on mobile devices when previewing an excel file.

    When previewing an excel file on my android phone I have to scroll to be able to view the entire document. There is a zoom feature if I edit the file but, I dont want to have to disable autosave and open the file just to preview. If I could zoom out while previewing it would be much more convenient.

  4. 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…

  9. Control-shift-down arrow

    Make control-shift-down work the same as desktop Excel: straight to the bottom, regardless of whether or not a function is returning blanks

  10. Opening scroll position

    The web app opens the file with the last used cell being in the top left.
    99% of the time this is infuriating for all users and a major impediment to using the web app.

    Most users will finish working on a cell somewhere on the page (not the top left cell). When they reopen the file, they have to scroll back left every single time.

    Please fix this to be the same as excel for desktop, e.g. save the scroll position or default it to be on the left of the workbook.

  14. Size up the vertical scroll bar size (the white part you can click and drag) to match length of spreadsheet. It should NOT be changing size.

    When your spreadsheet starts to get over 100-200 lines, and you grab the gray portion of the scroll bar, you cannot click and drag to get to the bottom. The white portion keeps changing size and you have to keep clicking and dragging to re-position your cursor. It should size up to match the length of your spreadsheet (the rows with text) and NOT change size. The attached spreadsheet has 200+ lines of text yet the scroll bar is huge. It's terribly frustrating.

  16. 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.

  17. Worksheet grouping with expand/collapse feature

    Similar to column/row grouping, with the expand/collapse functionality, but for worksheet tabs. This is a better way of organizing tabs than the alternatives (e.g., color coding groups of tabs, book-ending groups of tabs with section "header/footer" tabs)

  18. Space at bottom of web view excel "+" for adding additional tabs. Please allow more

    Next to all the tabs at the bottom on the web view there is a bunch of space next to the "+" for adding additional tabs. Please allow more space for workbooks that have a lot of tabs.

  19. Column sort specifically in Outlook's Excel preview

    It would be great if a rudimentary sort could be added to the Excel preview of Outlook online.

    As a user, I'd like to be able to preview a daily large Excel report from Outlook at a glance by seeing the first several rows. Because the report is large scrolling to the bottom is cumbersome and the top rows currently are not helpful.
