  2. Freezing Cells

    Please bring back the old method of freezing cells. In both the vertical and horizontal planes on the same worksheet. The old method was more functional and easier to use.

  4. Master tab that shows all tabs in spreadsheet.

    Create a master tab in the lower left corner of the spreadsheet that allows the user to view and select any tab in the spreadsheet without having to scroll through the entire spreadsheet. We often create massive spreadsheets and scrolling is cumbersome. [This function is in Google Spreadsheet and it has saved time so often.]

  6. Audit history

    Since the workbook is accessed by multiple persons, allow for an audit history so changes made are documented. Helpful to track when errors made and additional training needed.

  7. Make comments filterable. It would be great to be able to only see "open" comments (i.e. filter out "resolved" comment threads).

    Make comments filterable.

    It would be great to be able to only see "open" comments (i.e. filter out "resolved" comment threads).

    It would also be amazing to be able to filter comments by month that they were added (can you tell that I use the comments to trigger people to help with end of month commentary? Haha!).

    Someone else has mentioned being able to filter based on person who is mentioned int eh comment and that would be excellent too.

    Great feature that has helped me so far, I just think these changes could take it to the next level.

  13. Have a "fast" print button

    In Excel Online, you must click 5 times to print something
    (File->Print->Print->Confirm options->Print dialog: print)

    Either handle "Ctrl+P" or add a button to go directly to print options (select range, and options, then confirm) and immediatly after have the Windows print dialog.

  15. Allow the formatting of one or more words without applying to all content in a cell.

    Allow the formatting of one or more words without applying to all content in a cell.

    Sometimes we want to make one or two words or numbers bold or 'red' in color in a cell so that it stands out from other content in that cell. In the desktop app we can do this, but currently in the online version, it is all or nothing.

  16. Split Cell Feature.

    Cells should be able to be split into two, instead of having to merge cells.

  17. Sorting with merged cells

    When attempting to sort and the error pops up that some of the cells are merged and it cannot sort, it would be super handy to know which cells or cell range contain the merged cells. Would you be able to make that happen? Google sheets can do this, which is where I got the idea.
