  1. Make One Drive more competitive with Google Drive.

    I wrote a 10 Year Program for our Company in Excel. Now Google Drive has it's own "numbers program" so excel isn't compatible. Each week I download 100 excel files from Google Drive and have to open each one and close it selecting the SAVE button so the Master Excel file will see the individual files and populate the formulas. Tried using One Drive but it's half as fast as Google Drive. My staff complains if someone else logs into something they are working on it all freezes up.

  3. Self-grading and Reporting/Analytics Options for Excel Survey

    For those teachers using Excel Survey as a quiz tool, have a self-grading component optional. Also, have a nice data visualization/reporting piece built in that leverages Excel's capabilities

  6. Please make LINEST work even when some cells are blank

    Often, I have several sequences of data, of different lengths, that I put into a table. I use LINEST to perform a quadratic regression, but because it refuses to work if blank cells exist, I have to manually adjust the ranges for each column. If LINEST simply ignored any blank cells for its calculations, I could autofill the entire row of LINEST regressions.

  8. 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

  9. Have a clear filter button for all filters on the sheet as you can have with excel

    means if previous person has used filters and left them, easy to un-filter the table rather than try and see what was filtered and then un-filter it.

  11. Add / Edit charts online

    One of those things that are badly missing online is the ability to add and edit charts in Word.
    In my opinion, add/edit charts is the simplest way to create compelling documents that look good and are easy to share/edit with anyone without going through Excel which some users a really not very much used to, especially at the C-level.

  12. please give a sheetwise sharing option, there is only a work sharing option in Excel online.

    i have an idea that please give sheetwise sharing option in online excel, there is a whole workbook sharing option, but don't have a sheetwise sharing option in the same.

    Google Docs have the ability to do so. they have given the protect sheet option to restrict other used of the doc to edit. they can only see the document..

  13. Primary and Secondary Sorts

    I teach Computer Skills and Applications and Excel is a program that I use, however, with Excel Online I am not able to preform a primary AND secondary sort. I am not sure if I am missing something or if the function is not there. I see sort but can only sort in ascending or descending order. I would love to be able to do this using Excel Online.

  14. Resolve the issue of numbers being truncated

    When entering long numbers in a cell, regardless of the formatting, the number will always be truncated after saving the workbook and closing it. Upon opening it again the cell/s default to 'Scientific' formatting, consequently the original format is lost and renders the data in the cell unusable.

    I have to add a lot of barcodes for products into csv files and upload them to a server, but if I close the file prior to uploading, this truncating issue occurs and causes a big problem with the product's codes and subsequently cause other major issues, such as making product purchases…

  15. More function like in Ms. Excel Windows

    Hi Microsoft.
    The Files either it's Ms. Word or Powerpoint and especially Ms. Excel should be the same like its original. Because if it were supposed to be updated, there were some changes, like the column , texts , and spaces.

  17. excel survey - collect identity and some themes

    Some requests for the Excel Survey tool
    1) automatically collect identity (if user logged in) and add option to only collect one response per logged-in user. The identity will be written to one of the columns but add option to decide whether the identity should be shown. Maybe we want an anonymous survey with only one response per person.

    2) actually that suggests a second request - add an option to force the login so this can't be submitted anonymously

    3) add some themes, color, icons, graphics. Quick stuff - which will allow competition with google forms.

  18. Show formulas

    This option would allow you to toggle seeing formulas in cells rather than their calculated values.

  20. Allow for equations using the equation editor to reference values of cells

    The idea is that as users change the values of cells, the values within an equation object will change accordingly.
