  5. Could you just make it work as efficiently as google docs works please? It is always slow to update, clunky to share and generally unreliabl

    Just be more like google docs; Excel online doesn't do anything better, only worse for online usage, access, sharing and collaboration.

    it amuses me that on here you offer the option to sign in with facebook and gmail, but neglect your own office login!

  9. Automatically open file in Excel desktop if the file is above 5MB

    Simple enough. Excel online throws an error when the file is above 5MB in size, and doesn't give the user any other options. Effectively, the file is inaccessible to the user. If the file is above the Excel online limit, have the file open in Excel desktop instead.

  10. Excel online opening to the last cursor spot vs top left

    When I open excel online it opens to an odd spot in my document. It appears the last spot my cursor was left is now the top right of where it opens. For example if I'm working in a document and leave my cursor on the far right of my page (there is no more data on the right) the next time I open it my file opens with that far right cell now as my top left cell shifting my document. When working in multiple files and opening and closing it makes the constant having to scroll extremely annoying.…

  12. Move columns instead of replace them

    I should be able to move existing rows/columns by clicking and dragging - WITHOUT having to replace an existing row/column.

    Google is SO MUCH BETTER at these basic, user-friendly functions.

  14. At the moment I filter, it should show the quantity of cases that are the results of the filter.

    As in the Full Version of Excel, at the moment you apply different filters, there should be a number in the bar that shows the quantity of the cases that comply with the specifications of the filter (s).

  15. 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?

  17. Split Cell Feature.

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

  18. Need style pattern in filling cells

    style pattern in filling cells is not visible in Excel Online. It's a problem

    We need to access options format cells (number / alignment / font / border / fill / protection)

    More features online !

  19. F4 keyboard shortcut for Repeat / Redo

    In the local install of Excel the use of F4 to repeat the previous action is wonderful, and I use it regularly.
    If this could be added to the online version it would be great.
