  1. ability to fill in divided cells with a different color

    While this is a non-traditional use of Excel, my wife likes using it for quilting. What would help her is when she wants to make triangles that she could fill the cell with two different solid colors based on the triangle split.

  2. Ability to add conditions to 'yes/no' questions

    I want the option to add, text box or choice list, to yes/no answers. For example; Did they save any money this month? If yes, How much. If no, why not. If I could put this all into one question I can more easily require the user to impute a response.

  3. Improve screen use

    I would like to see more of my data, and less of the edge/IE11 direction arrows. Is it possible to do this?

  4. Being able to favourite a sheet within Sharepoint/Onedrive without having to use web browser favourites/bookmarks

    I think the title speaks for itself, just a nice simple feature that would be handy.

  7. Cross product and dot product

    You have many esoteric functions rarely used but you don't have dot and cross product. The dot can be faked with mmult but it should be easier and most engineers use these two functions.

  8. Fix Calculated field returns incorrect grand total in Excel

    As explained, the Grand Totals don't use the sub-totals of the calculated field. This is very non-intuitive/wrong.

    Fix.

  10. Add a select all (CTRL-A) to Excel (2013) search box

    Hi

    While using Excel, I often do search (CTRL-F) for a reason or another, in that search box, I cannot do a simple CTRL-A to select the content of the text box.
    It is really annoying: for a reason or another, we might want to select the whole content of the text box. Moreover it works in Word (2013), at least in the Navigation/Search Panel.
    I was thinking it is a default feature of any text box, but at least it seems to not be for Excel 2013.
    Thank you.

  11. Create own formula's ( So we can create something that connects to Api's for example)

    Main goal:
    - Create own formula's, so it's possible to couple the data with online api's

    There should be a method to add authentication though :)

  12. Correct bug to show "Survey" button when using Excel Online in a spreadsheet stored in Groups files.

    Right now when using Excel Online with a spreadsheet stored in a Group the Survey button is not available. It does appear when using Excel Online for a document in OneDrive.

    To recreate the problem,


    1. Login to Office 365

    2. Click the group in Outlook

    3. Open an Excel Document and edit online

    4. No Survey button shows

  14. Provide an option to check-out a document that was opened using word/excel-online?

    Provide an option to instantly check-out a document that is opened using word/excel-online? That way you can change almost seamlessly from read-only to update mode.

  16. Move Data in tables to create gaps

    I would like to be able to add information in between two sets of data. By dragging the information down. But the error says I cannot shift the cells down due to it interfering with the table. Can this be adjusted?

  20. Inform me when a shared workbook becomes available

    If someone has a shared workbook checked out, I cannot edit it, so I get a message telling me this. It would be helpful if a notification was made when it became available. Even better would be to know who has it checked out so that I can contact them
