  1. Allow pasting larger amounts of data into Excel Online

    This 100k limit is very inconvenient and small. We are trying to migrate our users from Google Sheets to Excel Online and SharePoint. They regularly paste 4000+ lines of data at a time from Excel desktop to Google Sheets, and it works no problem.
    With Excel online they are going to have to break it down into selections of 500 or so. Very time consuming for what we are trying to do. How can we get this limit raised?

  3. Excel online support for text boxes

    We want to add instructions to an Excel sheet. Excel Online does not provide that ability of adding text boxes we would use for instructions and other data for users.

  4. Users need to default to Excel Online or the full Excel. Time is wasted telling my sheet is too complex.

    Double clicking an xlsx file opens excel Online. They it tells me used features are not available. Then I have to reload it all again to do my work.
    I want to set my default to always use the full excel on my own laptop since I use lots of Macros and advanced functions.

  5. Improve large workbook compatibility and reliability with Excel Online for Coauthors

    I would like to request that more development of large multi co authored files be done to improve reliability, functionality and editing. Where files are heavily used and regularly hit the 500 version limit, issues come through with blocky jittery scrolling, loss of data entered in fields, slow loading, non saving etc.... Please fix these issues to make excel online a real beneficial tool.

  7. Currently it is not possible to filter the lines with an option to leave the sheet unfiltered for the users. This would improve excel a lot.

    Currently it is not possible to filter the lines with an option to leave the sheet unfiltered for the users. This would improve excel a lot and would enable more convenient cooperation.

  13. Create list view of excel sheets for excel online and add option to change sheet colors

    Expand Excel online capabilities allowing sheet colors to be changed and opting for a list view of the sheets. It is tiresome to click through pages of sheets.

  15. Add ability to reference a cell in another sheet with a simple click (like the desktop version)

    In the desktop version of excel, I can reference a cell from another sheet in my formula simply by clicking to that tab and cell. For example to make ='Sheet2'!A1 , I simply have to hit "=" and then click to the tab and cell I want in the formula.

    In Excel Online, it is not as user friendly. In order to achieve that reference in a formula, I would need to type out the entire formula, in the process clicking back and forth to remember which cell I am referencing.

  16. Let the link for accessing an Excel Online form work for the iOS.

    I have a link for using an Excel survey form; however, it only works on my PC and through browsers. It doesn't work for the iOS though.

  19. Edit pay layout in Excel Online

    Allow us to make page edits online. The print area and page layout at a minimum.

    I have a workbook with multiple pages. When I edit one page, it is the only page that downloads and I cannot upload it after an edit easily.
