  2. Make it more like real Excel. Office 365 was nothing I needed until COVID- 19

    Office 365 has dumped sharing in Excel. I don't like being forced into OneDrive, but if that is the future, don't abandon me because I have a shared worksheet that I have been using for years. If you don't want to support it, fine but don't tell me that I can't load the workbook because it's shared. Unshare it and warn me.

    The current Virus situation forced me to use use Office 365. It has many limitations. I know that is because of previous decisions to store some stuff locally, and some on a server. I can't access much data…

  9. Classic Ribbon

    I'm using Microsoft Teams and I understand that the web version of Excel, word, etc. are used within Teams. I find it extremely difficult to use the simplified ribbon versus the classic ribbon in the desktop application. I would like to be able to show the ribbon in two rows to avoid all of the ... The icons don't make sense, and I waste time hovering over them trying to find the one I want. This is a deal breaker for me using Teams as an all-in-one tool.

  11. annotations in excel for web

    Provide the capability to annotate a cell in Excel web the same way you would in excel in the PC based version.

    MS does not even realize that the capability is NOT there in excel web. Your help functions and help don't even recognize the deficiency. Surprising when you have unlimited resources to maintain your software.

  12. stop asking us what we like or don't like everything we use excel or word in teams. it's distracting

    stop it stop it stop it
    i don't like teams anyway - poorly designed and poorly implemented
    adding insult to injury to distract users.

  15. Replicate the full version, or scrap It

    Dear Microsoft, Please stop catering to the lowest common denominator at the expense of your core. Excel online is nothing more than a shadow and parody of the real thing. For power users, trying to navigate the online version is like a concert pianist having to hunt and peck while blindfolded and wearing a cast. Web browsers may be a fantastic tool for shopping, getting your news, and looking at cat memes; but are no place for quantitative analysis.

  20. allow educators to set up classes with students that provided view and review/ edit/ comment access

    allow educators to set up classes with students so we don't have to continually request access. Would be happy with review access so that we can comment and highlight issues in the file directly. One Note is great but our students prefer to use other systems that require shareable links.
