  1. Setting to Block Excel Online

    I have some complex excel files with Macros and references to other spreadsheets.

    They are stored in a Sharepoint portal which exposes them to Excel online.

    As soon as somebody opens them in online it breaks the external spreadsheet links and breaks some macros functions.

    And since the macro doesn't work in Online would be great to have a slider, Block from Excel online. It would start to load online then see this flag make no changes and force local excel to open and download.

  2. Include table expansion entries in drop down list.

    I have a table that auto expands when I type a new entry at the bottom, but the drop down list that is linked to that table doesn't update to include the new entry. A feature to allow drop down list to auto-update based on new table entries would be great! :)

  3. Update the wording on Paste Specials option for the new terminology of 'Comments' being a 'note' no longer a 'comment

    In the Paste Specials box, suggest to update the wording on the 'Comments' option for the new terminology of 'Comments' being a 'note'. Or have both options.

  5. Mirroring all the features and function from on-premise MS Excel to Excel online

    I decide to name an array of data on cloud-based Excel but in vain.
    However, I can do it on google sheets which is your competitor.

  7. Flash Fill wants an example submitted, but does not allow you to enter anything! Iwant to fill a series of dates.

    explain how to function with the stuff you put out. You have really screwed things up! I need to put together a file and send it to my doctor. I am unable to do so now.
    My IDEA is to re-think this whole thing! PS: Your "terms of service" are not for the user, they are to protect you rear end.

  12. Feedback

    Hi - I'm a computer science and information systems major. I work at Ferguson who is a heavy user of your 360, sharepoint and other services. We've recently been going to cloud based storage and I've noticed that everything now opens in the web. Most users would much rather open in the App, rather than the web. It would be nice if there was a way to ALWAYS OPEN IN DESKTOP APP vs having to hit that button everytime

  15. Graph paper with translucent layers - to make architecture plans, locking graph sizes

    Please provide an option to make different locking graph sizes for architecture plans, it would be wonderful if these could be tabs that are translucent to make stacking layers that can be viewed overlapping. Useful for quick idea drafts.

  19. Tie it to a wooden stake and set it on fire.

    As a user of this software I am too frustrated with it's missing features to bother making further comment.
