  4. Invert selection

    When selecting filtering options, after pressing the down arrow on the right of the column header, a menu comes up with various filtering options and the list of values available in the column.
    Sometimes there are many values I can choose from, so selecting those few I need may take time. Often I want to see the opposite, I mean so far I looked at for those few selected, but now I want to have a look at all others. This requires that I invert the selection: everything that was selected so far should be unselected and everything that was…

  5. Add Ability to Linear Fit

    Microsoft moderators were talking about it back in 2017 https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/creating-a-trendline-in-excel-online/6b12c339-02e9-466b-86a0-a64e17754610

    There should be no reason excel online is as limited as it is.

  8. Make the web versions that same as the desktop verions.

    I HATE that when I open a spreadhseet in sharepoint I cannot edit it will the full functionality of excel. Instead I have to open it on the web then open it in the desktop app and have 2 windows open. At least close the web window so I know which spreadsheet I am editing. DO THIS FOR ALL OFFICE APPS!

  9. Add native excel printing options e.g. gridlines, select sheets

    Please provide the native desktop excel's printing options in the online version. Some examples of basic functionality missing are not being able to toggle gridlines, adjust the page margin. The "print" functionality online currently converts to a pdf which loses lots of formatting and causes headaches.

  10. Allow printing of other fonts

    We use our barcode font in excel to print a quick easy scan sheet at our tills it displays fine in Excel online but when you go to print the barcodes appear back as their raw codes. Please fix.

  11. Add Query (See Google Sheets for functionality)

    Query is a lot easier to use when performing aggregations than VBA.

    =Query({Shee1t!B2:E}, Select Col1, Col2, Sum(Col4)/1048576 Group By Col1, Col2 Where Col2 IS NOT NULL Label Col1 'Cluster', Col2 'Index', Sum(Col4)/1048576 'Size (MB)'
    -> Would take data from Sheet1, cell range B2 upper left to last row of E), and for each combination of values from Col1 (matching the first column in the original cell range, which is column B ) and Col2 (column C) sum the corresponding values from Col4 (column E).

  12. Sharing, Protecting, cross sheet functions

    It will be good if we have functions like Importrange and Query functions.
    Sharing , protecting the cells, is not as good as google sheets.
    Cell based editor history,
    Macros, like
    all those things which are available in google sheets.

  13. Drag-and-drop Rows and Columns

    The rows and columns should be draggable and droppable. You should be able to move them with your mouse.

  18. I prefer the off line version as it is easier

    Can you make the online & off line capability the same. Somehow I find the online version is slightly difficult to use

  19. To select 'Specific' Documents to always be on view mode, and require 'Check Out' to begin editing.

    we have one main document that shows all of our jobs list. Our issue with excel, is that if someone is online editing the document and Someone opens the offline version to update the tables (Using the refresh feature) it will create a separate document. We now have a huge discrepancy between the offline document and the online document. (A pain in the neck to chase up, on a weekly basis)
