  7. Multiple Text Colors in one Cell

    Multiple text color in current excel online is unavailable.
    The multiple color text will ease the editing & online coworking experience, especially in emphasizing a point without turning everything into the same color.
    Really hope to see this improvement updated soon.

  9. Make the webversion fully functional

    This is the message I got from Microsoft: "This feature is not available in Excel for the web. If you have the Excel desktop application, you can use the Open in Excel button to open the workbook and print rows with column headers."

    The only problem is that, even though I have installed Microsoft Office 365 on my PC about 7 times now, Office never works on my PC. I cannot even access my documents when the wifi is running a bit slow. I live in a 3rd world country so the internet is mostly slow here. I daily regret…

  12. Allow both fixed rows & fixed columns at the same time

    Currently the user has the option of choosing a fixed row or a fixed column, but not both. Would be nice to be able to freeze 1st row & 1st column at least.

  14. Include the shortcuts Ctrl Insert to copy & Shift Insert for pasting.

    Having these shortcuts will allow left handers to have a more comfortable experience. This is because left handers will be able to keep their right hand more to the right of the keyboard. For right handers Ctrl C and Ctrl V is more comfortable for right handers because there left hand is more to the right of the keyboard, than using Ctrl Insert and Shift Insert. So please consider these shortcuts for making a more comfortable experience for us left handers.

  15. Add Manage Rules under Conditional Formatting

    Add the ability to manage multiple conditional formatting rules in the web client, similar to desktop. Currently, the only workaround is to setup multiple rules in the desktop client and copy-paste the cells into a web-hosted document.

  17. Support for vertical fonts in Excel spreadsheets using Excel Online app

    Currently clients are experiencing formating errors when creating a spreadsheet with vertical fonts using Excel Desktop application. When opening spreadsheet with Excel Online the vertical fonts are shown as horizontal fonts impacting on user satisfaction and experience. This is commonly an issue for customers saving a document in a SharePoint document library where the spreadsheet can be opened using Excel Online and / or the Excel desktop app. This is currently an Excel Online limitation.

  18. Make Excel Online App to be default app for opening excel files online and offline

    Thanks Microsoft for providing Excel Online app . Wish this app allows to create and edit files as the default app for users who don't have excel full application.

    This will allow users to use Excel Online as default app in windows and whoever wishes to have more functionality can choose (and will choose) Office 365 subscription or buy Office 2019 .

    Allowing this feature will be benefitted by Windows Desktop Users i increase the Office Online apps userbase subsequently may subscribe for Office 365 plans
