  4. Improvements to Excel Web Embedding

    Microsoft, you're missing a huge trick!

    If you can significantly improve the ability of embedding Excel worksheets/ranges/tables into a website / javascript - with much better navigability across worksheets, it will significantly improve the way I can, and many others (including Governements, Tax Officials, etc.) can present their tutorials (with example calculations that can be interacted with) online.
    I've spent months trying to find a great solution - but I can't find anything, so end up using the clunky excel embed capabilities - which aren't very good.

  5. Enable the Power Query as a native web experience

    It would be nice if we can have a native Power query experience on the web. You have it in Flow called Power Query. Cant we add this as a tab. And also allow people to use Power Pivot in the Excel Workbook. To start if we can import csv files , excel files and json files from a one drive or sharepoint list. Later from Azure blobs would be very nice.

    This will help doing alot of manual work. Can we also increase

  7. All functionality available

    The option to update documents within a team is great but the limitations of all excel functions unavailable cause me to make copies and re-save new files because I cant update them the way I need to in Teams. Would love to stay within Teams!

    We can trace who is the person modify the data inside the excel column.

  9. Improve Conditional Formatting in Teams

    I just posted an excel file to Teams and the conditional formatting did not come with it. I haven't done any trouble shooting, but it appears that it's because I used formulas for the conditional formatting, rather than the other options.

    Is there a reason you can't use formulas for conditional formatting on Teams?

  11. When the excel online is shared to several people, another person will see the filtering make by another person.

    It is great if everyone can make their own filter and edit on the range hide by another person.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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".

  20. Sheet view in online excel not working

    Sheet view functionality is amazing as its lets the user create their own private filters without impacting other users view. However if I create multiple sheet views with different filters , most of the time it displays default view regardless of the custom sheet view I select! I want to inform that , it worked perfectly in first day but started showing default filters there after.
