  1. When Excel is shared by different users. Please indicate the name of the present user who's using it at the side bar.

    When Excel is shared by different users. Please indicate the name of the present user who's using it at the side bar. I cannot modify it in excel and I don't know whose user is using it in that moment, first you're clueless asking one by one in your group on who's using it, second it is time consuming.

  4. A method to resend a survey

    There does not seem to be a method of resending a survey or edit a survey after you have saved it. Is that the case or am I missing something.

  6. More agile sharing options

    1 - I need to let a collaborator view / edit a only certain range of a spredsheet

    2 - the same for a filter view mode. I need to let a collaborator to view / edit only a few rows of a tabe, that I select using filters

  7. Create a permission level which is allowed access/editing but only on the online version.

    There are times where no advanced editing is required from the multiple users of a document. Given we have to deal with humans they still wish to open in excel locking the document out from others. The ability to stop people from "editing in excel" via permissions would allow the owner greater control over who can do what with shared files.

  12. Copy & Paste not working on Mac Safari

    Copy and Paste function does not work in Safari browser in Apple Mac for Excel Online. It should be possible in the same way as on Google Apps for now.

  18. "Subsheets" (Hierarchy of worksheets)

    With just one additional row of worksheet tabs, subsist could be nested under top-level sheets. The top row would be primary sheets; the bottom row would be the sheets that are nested under the selected top-level tab.
