  5. Provide a better way to display dates in a pivot table drill down result

    I use pivot tables daily and often have to drill down into the data to understand some additional details or context but one annoying 'feature' is that the date column is never expanded to display the whole date.

    Please could this be looked at as it is very frustrating to have to resize the field every singe time I drill down.

    Thanks

  8. Find and replace should have the option to modify the color of the text and fill again

    I used to be able to use the find and replace all tool to quickly make changes to not only the data in multiple cells, but also the color of the text and fill color. Now I have to manually change every cell to do so, which is time consuming and irritating!

  10. Allow to Enable New Simplified API

    Who gets to preview it? When will it come out of Preview (been almost a year)? Will it be available in Excel online? Is a special license required? I'm using the free Excel online.

    If i create a script containing the following:

    function main(workbook: ExcelScript.Workbook) {
      // Your code goes here
    }
    i just get an error "Cannot find namespace 'ExcelScript'." Can i enable this by adding something to the Libraries tab?

  11. full parity between Power Query from Power BI and Power Query Excel

    Power BI always gets new M functions and features first. The Power Query editor in Excel however, lacks behind a lot. Many functions that are generally available in Power BI desktop never make it to Power Query Excel.

    for example: the M function Html.Table has been available more that 2 years in Power BI desktop. But sadly still isn't supported in Excel 365.

    Please make all functions and features of the Power Query editor in the free software "power BI desktop" also available in the paid subscription of "Excel 365".

  12. Undo automatic formatting

    We require "undo auto-formatting" function at excel on web. Every time we enter email address, it turned a hyperlink automatically. And when we double click the cell as normal edition behavior, it doesn't allow editing but open the link directly. Hope this function can be improved and be more convenient to users.

    The right click Show/Hide Field List on a pivot table does not save. My field list keeps coming back, even though I have set it to Hide.

  16. Enable Office scripts on the Home/Personal version of Office 365

    I need to learn Office/Excel scripts for work, so that I can update some older spreadsheets that are programmed with VBA. However I do not have the time at work. I would like to be able to play with this at home - I have a personal office 365 subscription, but cannot access the automate tab.

  17. Add Fuzzy Lookup Add-in to the Office Store

    The Excel Add-in was developed by the Microsoft research team and is available for download in the Microsoft Download center for installation to the desktop Excel version. However, this add-in is not available in Microsoft 365 apps.

  19. Update workbook external-source data automatically

    we have a master workbook which linked some external workbook cells with "=()" function. We are using powerBI to get data from the master workbook for visualization, but data doesn't get refreshed until we open the master workbook. Hope the data can be refreshed without having to open the master excel workbook.
