  1. 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.

  2. Session timeout needs to be eliminated. Google sheets does not have this issue.

    My company recently switched from Google Sheets to Excel online. Expiring sessions are very annoying. It creates delays in entering data (waiting for a re-load), extra clicks, and sometimes my data has been lost altogether. If the page is open, it should be active.

  5. Update Excel Spreadsheet in One Drive when new form response is received

    It's a nice feature to be able to see form responses in Excel, but it always forces a download of the Excel spreadsheet, when I would prefer to view my form responses in Excel online. I've re-uploaded to spreadsheet of responses to One Drive, but it's not dynamically connect to the form so it doesn't update. I would also like to receive an email when someone responds to the form. All of these features, I note, have been available on Google Forms for years...

  7. Search bar

    I would prefer that when I use the search tool on a spreadsheet that the information stay in there so I can continue to search throughout the spreadsheet. Allow me to delete the info for the next search.

  10. show file location somewhere after search and open

    Show file location somewhere after search and open. Now when you search for files on one drive, they open, but it doesn't tell you the location of the file with helpful details like last modified etc.

    A small "i" in the top right corner as is in one drive folder view would work.

  12. Business Intelligence removed from Office 365 Business Premium :(

    Have Office 365 Midsize Business and Microsoft is forcing us to go to a new plan. Office 365 Business Premium which is the same price has Business Intelligence missing which we use. It would cost $90 a year more per person to go to E3 which has the BI we need or I have to cancel the plan we have now (because user names are attached to the online email address) and start another account. Please add option to purchase BI for some reasonable amount!

  18. Make it easy to publish spreadsheets on the web

    Excel should easily integrate as a computation engine into a web backend so that spreadsheets can be published. Numerous spreadsheets exist in business that take advantage of Excel's formulae and computations. It would be beneficial to have these available through web interfaces. For example, someone should be able to post values that are entered into cells and then trigger Excel's solver to output a solution that is read from another cell(s) and returned as the result.
