  1. There is no way to select non-adjacent cells as in normal Excel.

    In order to tot-up figures, it is useful to be able to use Ctrl+click and select different cells. There is no functionality in Excel online to do this currently.

    We are excited to announce that it is now possible to select non-adjacent cells in Excel for the Web.

    There are still several functionalities that are not available on non-adjacent cells, but the Excel team is working to add them.

    Please continue to leave feedback to help us improve.

    We are excited to announce that it is now possible to Duplicate worksheets in Excel Online.

    There are still cases where Excel Online will be unable to duplicate a worksheet. Most notably, in case either one of the following is present in the worksheet:

    • Images
    • Shapes
    • Charts

    Excel Online team is working to resolve these limitations.
    Please continue to leave feedback on the feature, to help us improve.

  3. Improve find functionality

    Functionality is very limited in browser. Can't search entire workbook or find all

  5. Command + Shift + Arrow Keys to Select Cells (Keyboard Shortcut Enhancement)

    In the desktop Excel app, users can use Command + Shift + up/down arrow keys to quickly select a set of cells without having to manually drag the mouse to select all of them. Please bring this keyboard shortcut to the Excel Online app as well!
