  1. In Excel allow modifying the decimal separator within the web application.

    In Excel (Office Web) allow to modify the decimal separator within the web application. Because it does not always take the system configuration, and not all countries use the same decimal nomenclature.

  3. Include a script search box in the Scripts pane

    Add a search box in the Scripts pane. Also , perhaps, add the ability to create folders in the pane , too. Enter text in the search box would filter those scripts that are listed making it easier to find the one you need. I am, already, having to scroll through a hundred scripts and that is, only, after a few months of using Office Scripts. In a year or two I will have hundreds of scripts which will, actually, be impossible to navigate.

  4. 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.

  5. import data from text file into excel online

    To all,

    I wished that excel online had the ability to import data from a TXT or CSV file from a location in onedrive. This would be a game changer for me and some of my personal reports.

    tks,

    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

  8. Open in Excel Online From Excel Desktop (Mac & Windows)

    Currently we are able to open the workbook from Excel Online to Desktop when the files are saved to OneDrive, but there is no option to open it from Excel Desktop to Excel Online. This is not limited to Excel but for other Microsoft Office Products as well.
    This will allow use both the versions of Offices
