  1. The licence of all Microsoft product has to be safed on the individual computer. Other you loose time everytime you open up a document. And

    Loosing time goes further, if the local wifi connection is missing. Ask yourself how many time a year the wifi is not working. And in that case you need even more time to upen up microsoft products. So please safe all licence on the individual computer. It could still be very fied once in a while. With best.

  3. Intergaration stinks

    How about you put back the DESIGN tab and allow export to SharePoint. The 365 versions of MS Office, Excel and OneNote pretty much sucks.

  4. Increase Memory on PC`s, Windows 10 Require a minimum of 16gb Everything so slow on our current systems

    It is noted that the bank migrated to Windows 10 without updating PC Hardware the result is reduced productivity. Systems are slower to open and manage applications. Please understand that Microsoft themselves minimum recommendations are pure to boot up the o/s and is not recommended for people working with multiple web and desktop applications. Were also not meeting the minimum Graphics Card specs of 1650 at least on the laptops

  8. Don't waste my time using a Webbased tool it I have the applciaiton on the PC. Your adding Noise to the work place for no purposes or gain.

    Determine if the PC has the application on it and then use the local application to open the XLS.

    That is the expected result of clicking on a XLS application, not wasting my time opening a Web based viewer. That well and good if I don't have the application.

    Stop adding noise to an already loud environment, understand?

  13. content copy paste issue.


    1. its not very friendly, especially, if you want to copy the online excel content and paste if into outlook emails or excel or any xls.

    2. its very sloooooow.

    3. also, if there are multiple user shared, suddenly the excel file is blocked, saying you are not allowed to use the file.

  15. Improve performance

    Benchmarking a locally installed office application, to a cloud-based application, I experience a four time slower performance. Program launch, file opening, file saving takes much longer that when I am offline. Online performance is too bad, and I try to avoid using it when possible.

  16. Delete multiple cells at once

    If you select a column of cells and press "delete", only the top cell is deleted. If I select all the cells and press "delete" it means I want to delete them all. Otherwise I would just select the top one.

    Is it possible to add this very basic thing?

  17. Excel on-line is too limited. It is a waste of time that I have to view it on-line before I can open it in Excel.

    Give me a way to open Excel files without having to look at them On-line first (where most of the features are disabled) before I can really look at them in Excel.

  19. I strongly suggest terminating the Excel Online program, it is simple nonsense! The full Excel program is still the king!

    I have nothing good to say about Excel Online, it provides no benefits to me. I much prefer to use the full Excel program. All my work requires the full functionality of Excel. Excel Online acts as a road block that I have to continuously work around.

  20. Ditch it. It's rubbish

    Forget this as a concept, proper excel users need an application that works, this doesn't
    just create an Excel viewer for sharing purposes, this online product simply does't work
