  1. Please allow individual cell insert and delete

    Currently, it's not allowed to just insert or delete individual cell, it has to be a whole row or column.

  2. Have "Date Axis" work the same on Pivot Charts as on standard charts

    On regular charts selecting "Date Axis" will cause the chart to draw with the data correctly spaced (i.e., dates that are 7 days apart will be 7 spaces apart on the chart) even if there is no data. On Pivot Charts "Date Axis" behaves just like a "Text Axis" and non-adjacent dates are drawn adjacent to each other.

  4. Screen Sharing on Excel

    When one of my teammates and myself are on the same excel worksheet, someone has full control of the sheet and the other person is just viewing what I am doing. So when I move to another sheet, the person's excel will automatically follow me where I go on the excel sheet. In a sense screen sharing/screen mirroring.

  5. Excel online workbook to open a default sheet whenever it is accessed by anyone

    > User A opens the Excel Workbook and edit the Sheet 3, saves and closes the Workbook.
    > When user tries to open the same workbook again, he is redirected to Sheet 3 directly.
    > When user B tried to open the same workbook in a different machine, he also gets the same Sheet 3 as a default sheet when opened the workbook.

  6. Disable copy/cut/paste function for unlocked cells

    Where most of the sheet is locked and protected have an option to disable copy/cut/paste function for the unlocked cells without using VBA since we are opening the file online.

  9. full parity between Power Query from Power BI and Power Query Excel

    Power BI always gets new M functions and features first. The Power Query editor in Excel however, lacks behind a lot. Many functions that are generally available in Power BI desktop never make it to Power Query Excel.

    for example: the M function Html.Table has been available more that 2 years in Power BI desktop. But sadly still isn't supported in Excel 365.

    Please make all functions and features of the Power Query editor in the free software "power BI desktop" also available in the paid subscription of "Excel 365".

  12. Enable drawing in Excel for web

    Drawing and viewing drawing in excel files works in iOS, Windows, MacOS, but not web or MS Teams. Would like to see it work in web and MS Teams also.

  13. absent sparkline in online Excel

    Online Excel doesn't provide sparklines. Sparklines are used in Excel, compact, informative, and just darn useful. Under Insert can sparklines be made available. I tend to not use Excel online since my Excel spreadsheets lose function.

    Thank you, Terry Wright

  14. Online Excel needs to have 'Name Manager as an option'

    The online Excel version does not have the 'Name Manager' option, which I use frequently for Macros and VBScript. To get the features I need, I end up having to open the application on my desktop.

  15. Allow the formatting of one or more words without applying to all content in a cell.

    Allow the formatting of one or more words without applying to all content in a cell.

    Sometimes we want to make one or two words or numbers bold or 'red' in color in a cell so that it stands out from other content in that cell. In the desktop app we can do this, but currently in the online version, it is all or nothing.

  16. It doesn't have all functionality as desktop excel. Make Online excel = Desktop excel

    Data formatting could be made as easy as in Desktop excel. As we are very much used to mouse it will be better to have those functionality to copy paste & other functions. In simple words make Online version = Desktop version.

  17. Be able to open excel files online even if it is with unsupported feature.


    • Should let us know which particular thing that sets off the unsupported prompt

    • Even if there are unsupported features inside the file we should be able to open the file ignoring the unsupported or opening it by creating a copy without the unsupported feature

  20. Change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web

    We should be able to change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web. For instance I want to turn off the auto hyperlinking, but I am unable to do so.
