  1. Increase script run time limit

    Power Automate has a time limit of approximately one minute to allow an Office Script (the Excel Script Connector, to run. I found that when that time limit runs out the error message, returned in Power Automate, does not specify that. It, just, says “Your Flow failed. Try again.” While not only unhelpful, that message is wrong. One should not “try again” as that would not fix the problem. It would merely repeat the run of the flow incurring the same error situation. So, if the error message could be more informative and if the time limit could be longer…

  3. jQuery

    since it is not possible to edit data requests in the online version, include jQuery so it would be possible to make dynamic jQuery Ajax request for example:

    let ret =$.ajax({...});

  7. Provide a better way to display dates in a pivot table drill down result

    I use pivot tables daily and often have to drill down into the data to understand some additional details or context but one annoying 'feature' is that the date column is never expanded to display the whole date.

    Please could this be looked at as it is very frustrating to have to resize the field every singe time I drill down.

    Thanks

  9. Find and replace should have the option to modify the color of the text and fill again

    I used to be able to use the find and replace all tool to quickly make changes to not only the data in multiple cells, but also the color of the text and fill color. Now I have to manually change every cell to do so, which is time consuming and irritating!

  10. 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".

  11. Undo automatic formatting

    We require "undo auto-formatting" function at excel on web. Every time we enter email address, it turned a hyperlink automatically. And when we double click the cell as normal edition behavior, it doesn't allow editing but open the link directly. Hope this function can be improved and be more convenient to users.

  14. Add Fuzzy Lookup Add-in to the Office Store

    The Excel Add-in was developed by the Microsoft research team and is available for download in the Microsoft Download center for installation to the desktop Excel version. However, this add-in is not available in Microsoft 365 apps.

  16. Update workbook external-source data automatically

    we have a master workbook which linked some external workbook cells with "=()" function. We are using powerBI to get data from the master workbook for visualization, but data doesn't get refreshed until we open the master workbook. Hope the data can be refreshed without having to open the master excel workbook.

  18. 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.

  19. get an external URL for a specific cell in an Excel file

    In Teams have the ability to get an external URL for a specific cell rather than just the entire excel file. Oftentimes we are trying to point staff to a particular sheet within the file and a cell within that sheet rather than just go to the file and then have to find it.
