  1. More Room

    On a small 13 inch screen the online excel is cluttered and takes up space. I suggest getting ride of the top bar that reads, "Excel Online".

  2. Offline Functionality for Editing Shared Documents

    As a user who goes in and out of network/wifi access, I would like to edit shared documents "offline" that will temporarily store my data locally until I am inside my network/wifi area when I can sync the data back to the master document.

  6. survey form save button and return to survey

    There are times when I have a lengthy survey. One page is too long and the user may not have the time to complete the survey in one sitting. The ability to save the survey would be helpful. Perhaps the user could enter their name & email address and then receive a link in their email to return and complete the survey. This feature should be part of the survey design setup when creating the form.

  7. Add an option to boot users on shared documents if idle for a certain amount of time.

    In my office, we are currently running into an issue that people leave the office still logged in to live documents. This causes a problem because at the end of the day we like to have one person open the document in the desktop app so they can make formatting changes, etc. This is not possible with the forgetful users still logged in.

  11. Allow edit of submitted survey

    After you have submitted an Excel online survey form, it would be good to have an option to edit your choice while the survey is active.

  14. R1C1 Format

    Hi, one of the things I would like to see added to excel online is the ability to use the r1c1 format for rows and columns as it is something that Google sheets doesn't do that I personally find very attractive about MS excel

  15. Please add "Saved" feature on Excel online

    Hi Microsoft,
    Excel online is great tool to maintain my productivity at public computers as I stored all my files under Onedrive.
    But, whenever I edit a doc/xls, I am unsure that my editing is saved. Sometimes and at many locations, I have very poor network connection.
    You have added "Saved" feature in Excel preview for windows 10. Can you please add it to Excel online as well? Thanks

  17. Supplementary Ribbons

    When clicking on a Chart you show a button for Chart Tools. When clicking on a Table you show a button for Table Tools. Pivot Table Tools, Picture Tools, etc.
    You can improve the experience by actually opening the appropriate tools ribbon. Chances are greatly more often than not, than when a user clicks on a chart, the next thing they are going to do is to open the Chart Ribbon. So do it for them. If they don't want the supplementary ribbon open then all the other ribbon tabs are visible to open anyway.
    Regards

  18. Survey on excel can add a ranking as a response type.

    Add ranking type response so like 1 is very unlikely and 5 very likely.

  19. Upload directly from OneDrive an Excel attached to a email

    I see it is possible to upload in Outlook an Excel file from my OneDrive, while I can't seem to find any option to do the reverse.

    Because I am working in an enterprise environment, any facility to work faster is welcomed.

    Now I have to download the excel file then manually upload it to OneDrive, when I can edit it. Because I'm using Office 365 this means uploading is the only way for me to edit Excel.

    Thank you and probably this is a general topic for all apps in Office suite.
