  1. add option to download snapshot of the open sheet in excel online

    Add option to download snapshot of the open sheet in excel online.
    This is very helpful options for people like me who uses big data / powerpivot in backend. The snapshot will only contain the data and formatting of the sheet (not any backend files & data).

  2. Automatically open PDF view when printing from Firefox.

    Please see if there is a way to open the PDF print tab in Firefox without having to select "Click here to view the PDF of your document." after printing from Excel. Thank you.

  4. undo

    Only the last person who made an edit can undo. This makes it very difficult working on a shared document.

  5. make a drop down on a graph to have the options to print, make new page, save image, etc. look at google.

    On excel on a mac, after you make your graph/chart there is no place to print or move to a different page. On google sheets, if you make a graph it has a drop down in which you can select different options for your graph. Doing this it makes life easier.

  8. Multiple users should be able to update excel online.

    Sharepoint custom list (data sheet view) in 2007 version was so flexible. It served purpose of a large shared excel sheet.

    Multiple users should be able to update excel online.

  9. Add ability to notify user who is blocking access that other's need access

    When opening a sheet and discovering that the sheet is locked because someone is accessing the sheet with Excel, we should have a button that will notify the user that I am requesting access.

    This would encourage a discussion between the Excel and Excel Online user.

  15. Add comments to sheet tab

    Add ability to add a comment to a sheet tab, similar to adding a comment to a cell. This would allow you to add commentary for sheet usage and/or instruction.

  16. Larger Workbook Capacity and Sheet finder facility

    Please increase the allowable size of the work book in the browser so it can accomodate large work Sheets with a lot of tabs

    Also not being able to right-click in the Sheet Finder in the Browser version of Excel is particularly annoying and inconvenient and should be fixed ASAP

  18. Desktop Sharing

    It would be great if Shared Documents could be used on the Desktop app with all recipients able to edit while in the document at the same time instead of all having to use the Online Excel version.
