  3. Highlight keywords in spellcheck

    Please add the feature to show highlighted words when conducting spellcheck in Excel. The entire spellcheck feature needs to be updated to Word standards, as Excel is being used for this in the business world.

  4. 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. Default opening at the TOP A1

    Each time you go to a worksheet or file, it does not show you A1, you must start working with the sheet by scrolling to see what should be the default position. Or Remember the last position when it was closed.

  14. Access to Charles Schwab

    Charles Schwab (not a small company) is one of the institutions you list to link from to Excel Money. Yet, when I attempt to it says it can't because of multi-factor authentication. I phoned Schwab (Schwab Bank is my primary bank; without access, Excel Money is useless to me) and Schwab said you would have to request access. Incidentally, my small credit union accesses my Schwab accounts (brokerage and bank) and regularly updates balances in credit union data automatically. So there must be a way. If my small credit union can do it, I'm sure MS can!

  15. Add Layout and Subtotal formatting support for PivotTable Hierarchies

    I'm trying to create an Office script in Excel Online that formats a PivotTable. I am able to use the PivotLayout interface (and setLayoutType and setSubtotalLocation methods) to format the entire table, but there is no way to format an individual row or column hierarchy.

    You can do just that without code in Excel Online by right clicking on a pivot item or row header and using the subtotal and layout menu items that appear. It would be helpful if you could add support for formatting individual row/column hierarchies.

  17. URL to saved sheet view (filter)

    This is available on google sheets and is incredibly useful. You can link directly to a sheet view so someone can click on a link and not only get to the excel workbook online .. but have it sort and filter automatically.
