  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    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

  11. Please make opening files in {Excel,Powerpoint,Word} a user-configurable default action

    Whenever I open documents on sharepoint, I prefer to open these using the desktop applications.

    I'd appreciate if the choice of application (i.e. desktop or office online) is left to the user instead of enforced by aggressive "office online" marketing...

  14. In SharePoint's File Viewer web part, you should be able to change the "view" size of the file you are working with.

    In SharePoint's File Viewer web part, you should be able to change the "view" size of the file you are working with. Some spreadsheets are so "wide", the window in the browser cannot accomodate, especially with frozen ranges. Like in excel where you can change the view size, you should be able to do this in the File viewer web app.

  16. Add mutliple window sessions

    Allow Teams to have multiple windows open. If you want people to utilize this more, then more windows like Excel windows as most corporate employees use two monitors

  19. Sidescrolling for sheet tabs

    Ability to scroll through sheet tabs either with a scrollbar or click/drag/release using the mouse.

    I was recently given a file with 140+ sheets (not alphabetized), and realized how unpleasant it was to navigate. Having more than the arrows "scrolling" one at a time would go a long way.
