  1. get an external URL for a specific cell in an Excel file

    In Teams have the ability to get an external URL for a specific cell rather than just the entire excel file. Oftentimes we are trying to point staff to a particular sheet within the file and a cell within that sheet rather than just go to the file and then have to find it.

  2. 2029 Rule defeats Windows Regional Defaults (using 2016 for PC)

    Enable copy/paste of two digit years to arrive in Excel in the desired century (20xx vs. 19xx).

    My issue is copy/pasting from another app into Excel where the '2029 Rule' overrides Windows Regional Settings. The rule causes data coming in from another App (e.g., MS Project) to paste as 19xx for any date after 12/31/2029. Though displayed as two digits, the values in the source app stored as four digits. More importantly, regional setting defaults clearly direct the correct interpretation of later two digit dates into the 21st century.

    The easiest workaround is to update the source data to display…

    I want to be able to hide the “Download as ODS” option when using ‘Save as...’ on Excel Online.
    This is to avoid having users accidentally save files in the wrong format.

  12. hyperlink on single words like google sheets, formatting, and hyperlink interface file directory with link


    1. URL can be linked to single words in google sheets, thus allowing to click the cell without navigation, or better looking format.


    2. conditional formatting if it cell contains hyperlink, to prevent other conditional formatting from undoing the normal hyperlink formatting


    3. the hyperlink interface that can look at files like in the desktop. But use the URL link instead of file Path link. So folder can move and not break linking and open correctly from all interfaces (instead of thinking its a download if done wrong)

  15. Need a button in the ribbon or Quick Access Toolbar for "Center Across Selection"

    Merging cells makes copying and pasting of those cells difficult, so I almost never merge cells. Instead, I use "Center Across Selection" extensively, but it requires 4 mouse clicks or 9 keyboard clicks. Please provide a standard button for this in the ribbon, or at least a command icon that I can add to my Quick Access Toolbar.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Currently, events APIs are not supported within Office Scripts. One of the main reason is that events can be long running and scripts have a defined start and end points. Unlike an add-in, the script doesn’t stay in the background to listen in and act on the events.
    Could you please let us know how you’d utilize events API support? That will definitely help us understand the requirement better.

    Thank you

  19. radio buttons

    Radio buttons don't work and are not visible in online version. If file is uploaded to sharepoint there's only empty area where radio buttons are. If fsharepoint file is downloaded then again, the radio buttons are missing.

  20. Power query metadata in VBA

    It would be nice to have metadata from a PowerQuery table. The text encoding, recordcount, list of fields and data types, the table as a recordset, etc. There is Binary.InferContentType, and separate queries can return headers etc but IMO it would be better to surface them as Query properties.
