  2. Make Excel online look like the WUP

    Make word online like the Excel Mobile app for windows and mobile devices. make it look completely like it and if you have office 365 subscription allow access to all the features but not make it where you must have office 365 to do the stuff that excel online has already. If the Excel Online was an exact copy of Excel Mobile (2016 app) it would make it easier to work on a chromebook or a computer that is not windows 10

  6. Copying and Pasting Formula

    You should be able to copy data from one worksheet and paste it in a different one but bring along the formula with it i.e. currently it just copies and pastes the text.

  7. In the cell with a Total, please highlight the cells that are being added from the list, not just the range of cells in the list.

    I would like to see the cells highlighted that are included in a Total cell. As it is now, when I right click on the Total cell (the cell containing the total of cells in the list), it only shows a range of cells included.

  9. searching sheets

    When working in Excel online on ONEDRIVE, to search do the following:

    Make a Search Sheet to help you quickly move to a particular sheet.
    Right click on the tab you've name Search Sheet.
    Choose reorder.
    Move to before the sheet you are searching for, clicking OK.
    Choose your sheet.
    After you've finished searching, move Search Sheet back to before 1st named sheet so you know it's there for next time.

  11. No sub sheet protection available for users

    Excel Online does not allow to protect individual sub sheets in one file. We get this option in Google sheets. This needs to be included.

  17. Enhance "... you haven't been interacting ..." message

    I've recently started getting this pop-up:
    We noticed that you haven't been interacting with this workbook, so we paused your session.
    What does a "paused session" mean?
    It would be good to:
    a) Know how long that inactivity period was.
    b) Know if there was a way to change it either individually or at the "corporate" level.
    c) Give "warning" before it happened (maybe it does and I have not noticed).
    d) Offer help as to why people are getting the message and what the "benefits" of it are.

  19. Full Screen mode should actually be full screen (just like a PowerPoint presentation is)

    In Excel I can build beautiful, dynamic charts, but I have to output these into PowerPoint for presentations. If Excel could actually be Full Screen (i.e. covering the menu bar at the bottom and not displaying the file name at the top), it would enable Excel to be used as a dynamic presentation tool by itself.

  20. Disable download option

    It is possible to open an embed xls file, by clicking button 1 or 2 in the attached file, in Office Online. Once in Office Online there is an option for downloading the file for any user or even if not logged in (button 3 of the other attached file). However, that option should not be available unless the user sets that permission.
