  3. 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. CSV functionality on Excel Online

    I am trying to import a contact list for Forms which requires CSV. I could not find an easy way to convert my workbook online to CSV. So I needed to use the desktop app.

  8. Desktop Excel is great, spreadsheet edit within SharePoint is TERRIBLE. I suggest ALWAYS opening .xls* files within the desktop app.

    Desktop Excel is great, spreadsheet edit within SharePoint is TERRIBLE. I suggest ALWAYS opening .xls* files within the desktop app. Why even try to provide functionality within SharePoint?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. One-click start, One-click end button in Excel Tracking sheet

    Hi guys,
    thanks so much for the work u guys are actively doing behind the scenes :)
    But I'd like to suggest something very important. As u can see in the attachment, I use a tracking sheet we created in our office using Excel, and we created a lot of tabs at the bottom, so that we can identify certain countries we work with;

    But since some time now, we noticed that there was a "one-click" button which was initially there to browse through the pages and get to the last Tab created, but now, that "one-click" button is no…

  18. Online Excel should have capability as that of Offline Excel

    User should be able format data in Online Excel as that of Offline. Online excel should allow user to copy data from offline excel & paste it in online one.

    Speed of formatting can be improved. Sometimes it happens that formatting goes wrong due it's performance & we have to remove/undo our work done.

  20. When Orientation is changed, defaults to 0 degrees online.

    I use advanced features but the one feature that is missing in the online version that is really needed is orientation. I have long column titles that I have to change the orientation. My spreadsheets are used by multiple users and it would be much better if they could edit online instead of opening it in Excel then saving it back to the SharePoint site.
