  1. Be able to mention @ people

    It'd be great to follow Google idea and allow to mention people that have access to the document simply by adding @name .

  5. Re-open Pivot Tables!

    So sometimes people misclick and accidnetally close and lock pivot tables, and after that point they are completely useless for adding new information into. There should really be a way to reopen them as this is currently causing an information entry issue at my work.

  6. unsupported features in Office 365

    If there are unsupported features when opening an Excel workbook for edit in Office 365, then please inform me what these features are and where to find these in the workbook, instead of 'To edit this in your browser, we will create a copy that doesn't include unsupported features.'
    For instance I get specific information when saving an Office 97 version after editing in Office 2013.
    This helps me to decide what to do: accept (e.g. is only a presentation issue) or somehow make it impossible to edit via Online (e.g. VBA code will get crippled).

  8. Add Chat Minimize when in snapped window

    Setup:
    Windows 10, Chrome browser.

    When I have a window snapped to the left or right of the monitor the Chat option is available, but I am unable to minimize the chat window without first going full screen. When the chat window is open it covers the toolbar.

  9. Let me open shared file in local Excel 2016

    Trying to open a shared file with Workbook Sharing activated - can't open because Workbook Sharing isn't supported in Excel online. Give me an option to open in local Excel 2016 license, or to sync the file to my local drive so I can open in local Excel license.

    Said it in the title. Better off when Office was on the desktop.

  12. Change the "Edit Workbook" button in Excel Online to add "Open in Excel as read only"

    Excel online is a good tool, but when using my PC on a desk with big screens, I prefer using the native Excel. I often have to consult files that I don't want to change. Adding the option "Open in Excel as read only" would be a great help to me.

  14. Allow for multi user editing without file locks as with Google Spreadsheet

    Generate the baility to multi user edit concurrently on the same file for both Excel online and application. Currently there is no true multi user editing as anytime a file is accessed even with multiple users enabled it still locks the file and cannot be edited by others.

  16. Can you create a pop-up notification for when I exceed 5MB before I save/exit?

    I don't always have the file size committed to memory when I'm working. I'd like to see a notofication that says, "your file has exceeded 5MB and will no longer be editable online. OK or Cancel" so I have a chance to reduce the size before I close it. I have a file I have been working on and as of right now, I can no longer open it to edit it online because it's too big.

    I think if I had known that was the case, I could have deleted some more data I know I won't be needing…

  18. Embedded File in Team - Read only access to selected team members

    It would be great if selected members in team can have read only access to the files and not for editing the embedded file

  19. Please add people tagging feature!!!! For tagging people using @.

    Not having this makes Google docs so much better for collaboration. Tag people and create an alert for people tagged to create the viral loop and bring them back into the doc for live collaboration. Little things make a big difference.

  20. Allow Online user to edit PivotTable title fields such as Row and Column Labels

    Allowing users to edit Row or Column labels online enables them to be more descriptive when presenting PivotTables. Currently required to "Open in excel" to make a simple edit.
