  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  18. working in Excel version and on line work sheet match

    Need to have the online version match the Excel versions. I have noticed when you have it set up and line up in a certain way in the cells in excel it is good but if you open it up in the online version it is off. If you fix it online then it makes it off in excel version.

  19. Enable users to hide ribbon bar on Office 365 version, like on desktop versions. Difficult to view on tablets.

    The bulky ribbon at the top of the page makes it difficult to use Excel on a tablet or other small screen. The only way to hide it seems to be switching to "read view", which makes it difficult to access the editing tools. Would like option to hide ribbon and hover over it to open, like with desktop version.

  20. Allow us to search by highlight colour.

    When searching a sheet, allow us to not just search by text in the box but by the colour we've highlighted the box with.
