  1. Excel in Teams text alignment

    Allow for vertical text alignment when veiwing Excel Docs in Teams. Currently if having a table/list using vertical text in an Excel it moves the text and makes the column unreadable.

  2. Calculated Field with Pivot Table in Excel Online

    When I use Excel Online, I am not able to add a calculated field for my pivot table. This feature already exists in Desktop version, adding this feature to Excel Online would help.

  5. I would like to see the same display in safari on ipad as in excel online on PC.

    When I use the mouse on my ipad, the menu for touch comes up and is very difficult to use.
    I would like it to display and work the same as on a PC.

  6. Data Validation from a separate sheet

    I'm trying to do a simple table lookup from another sheet but this doesn't appear to be possible on Excel Online. I have several tables with a "person" column that allows users to select a pre-defined list of member names from a drop-down list using data validation. This works fine except every time we add or remove a member I have to go and update about 20 tables. It would be much more efficient to have one master member list on a separate sheet and do a simple lookup using data validation list from this sheet. From what I understand,…

  8. "Money in Excel"

    Money in Excel: It appears that you only import about a month of historical transactions. I would like a way to request you pull more transactions, or the ability to load historical transactions from a CSV or Excel file.

  9. Need to be able to have more than 1 colour of text in a cell.

    Multiple colleagues of mine update our excel documents online. We usually use a traffic light system to show what stage each point in the calander is on which is not possible using one drive as it only lets us use 1 font colour per cell. This means we'd be better off working on a desktop version and sharing documents instead of updating on One Drive.

  11. Fix this find & replace for: find * (star) replace with - (hyphen)

    Please fix this find & replace combination:
    find * (star) replace with - (hyphen)

    When I run this combo, the end result in a cell is just one hyphen or dash (also in desktop version).

    The only way I can perform the above find-replace quickly is by copying all the cells to InDesign, which I use all the time for layout things, and using its find & replace function, then I need to copy all cells back to Excel.

    Thanks!

    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

  17. unlock sheets

    It's very important and necessary to be able to "unlock" sheet in the site of Excel 365 in line, because the lack of this option make the user the mandatory the necessity of have Excel.app installed in the hardware, so because of this the fully potential of the "on line" services are not so functional and not allowd us to become in a "fully movil collaborator" to our companyes

    Hello everyone,
    Thanks for submitting this idea and voting for it.
    We need more information for better understanding of this request.
    Sheet tabs should not “jump around”, unless someone is reordering them.
    Is it a bug or a feature request? Is it still relevant?
    Any additional information will help us prioritize and handle this issue.

    Thanks,
    Itai from Microsoft

  20. hyperlink on single words like google sheets, formatting, and hyperlink interface file directory with link


    1. URL can be linked to single words in google sheets, thus allowing to click the cell without navigation, or better looking format.


    2. conditional formatting if it cell contains hyperlink, to prevent other conditional formatting from undoing the normal hyperlink formatting


    3. the hyperlink interface that can look at files like in the desktop. But use the URL link instead of file Path link. So folder can move and not break linking and open correctly from all interfaces (instead of thinking its a download if done wrong)
