  5. The ability to add a default value/equation

    For example: Every survey submission shows up with a user defined cell attached in the excel (e.g. the average of two values is included automatically in-line).
    This would let you automatically do some analysis on incoming data, which is extra helpful if you have a large number of people also viewing the results of the survey.

  7. Update the JavaScript Ewa Namespace API

    Enhance the JavaScript Excel Web Access Ewa Namespace API (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee589018.aspx) so it has more of the features that the newer Office Excel Add-in JavaScript API (Office.js) has (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee589018.aspx), including cell formatting and ability to submit API calls in batches.
    OR simply replace Ewa with the Excel Add-in API, but continue to allow embedding of Excel Online on public websites (Office Add-ins don't allow this without Office Store).

  8. Provide a link to return to the SharePoint library the file was opened from.

    When opened from a SharePoint library users don't know how to get back to the library. Sure, the back button works but a bit of navigation is nice.

  10. Too easy to lose an "un-posted" comment if you accidentally click away.

    In Excel Online, you can right-click Insert Comment - the pane on right appears. You enter your comment only to accidentally click to say another cell and you lose the comment (as Post was not clicked). Maybe some sort of warning would be good?

  14. Collaboration needed

    When working with multiple people, we should have the option to send all of them or specific person, the notification via sheet itself to let them know it has been updated along with the ability to send annotation about it.

  15. Provide an Embedding Configurator for Office 365 / SharePoint Online, like the one on OneDrive

    In Excel Online on OneDrive, you can choose File > Embed, and you get a nice dialog that let's you choose the part of the workbook you want to embed, and a bunch of other options and then it will generate an embed code for you.

    But, if the file is stored in Office 365 / OneDrive for Business / SharePoint Online, there is no "Embed" option on the File menu. There should be, please add it!

  16. Wondering how co-authoring works with groups in Excel

    we have a group project that involves entering and editing about 30,000 rows x 8 columns of data in an excel sheet. I have been researching the co-authoring new function. Are there any limitations for mulitple users? We usually have around 3-5 people entering at the same time. Would this cause problems? we currently have gone away from Excel for this project and used Google Sheets. However, it does not seem very robust and there are frequent screen freezes and crashes.

  18. Fix Charts inconsistencies which require you to delete items to fix them.

    I run into bugs where changes I make on a chart in excel don't make it to excel on-line. For example, I changed font characteristics of 3 data labels for a chart. On excel on-line, 2 where changed and one wasn't. To fix, I had to turn off all the data labels and recreate them.
