  1. CELL function added to online

    In the desktop version of excel,

    =MID(CELL("filename",$A$1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",$A$1))+1,255)

    is the only way to find the current sheet name. On Excel Online, the function CELL does not work.

  2. Move ribbon bar pin and up-caret to the menu bar to make them always visible.

    Move the ribbon bar pin and up-caret to the menu bar to make them always visible to the user. Otherwise, the user needs to adjust the browser's zoom level often to see the show/hide ribbon bar view.

  4. I wish I could talk to the person editing my document whilst they are editing it.

    If there was a small icon of the person editing my document and there was an option to chat with them which could appear on the side of the document. so while they are editing, I could ask them questions and get a response straightaway, that would be great.

  5. 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. Then it tells me the used features are not available. Then I have to reload it all again to do my work. This wastes a lot of loading time.

    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.

  10. Survey option is very good, but please improve the aesthetics

    Survey option is very good, but the aesthetics are not so good. It would also be nice to have lots of customizable features, sort of like Google Forms.

  15. Allow to change setting in excel in the online version

    The default configuration for numbers are with dot (.), but some countries has by default the coma (,)
    Add simple data numbers in online version is easier if you allow this feature.

  17. Download or save excel online.

    You can't "save-as" and you can't download when you open a file via an emailed link from a guest. Can't copy into desktop excel app as the data set it too large. The capability to export is there, just not accessible when it's online.
