  1. Default to Desktop Applications

    When opening a file in Teams, please default to the "desktop" app so that the full editing functionality can be achieved without having to navigate to different dialog boxes.

  3. Allow Users to Edit Ranges should function in Excel Online

    This functionality would be incredible for several things my office would like to implement if it worked online. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly but it appears other users have been having the same issues. When I open an excel online file in the desktop app and give specific users permission to edit locked ranges it works when editing on my computer in the desktop app but not when editing on the web app.

  4. Improve other Microsoft features in MS TEAM

    I created a chart in Excel, using the Draw feature, and uploaded it to MS TEAM. When team members went to view this file, the lines and arrows I created/drew were not visible in the TEAM application. Please allow this feature to be supported in MS TEAM so that additional steps, to share file(s), are not needed. Screenshots added for reference

  5. Configuration item allowing user to set whether excel opens in app as default (not company level)

    Allow for settings Configuration item allowing user to set whether excel opens in app as default (not company level) as the company will always choose the preview version so this has to be at an individual user setting set up. Thx!

  16. Add native excel printing options e.g. gridlines, select sheets

    Please provide the native desktop excel's printing options in the online version. Some examples of basic functionality missing are not being able to toggle gridlines, adjust the page margin. The "print" functionality online currently converts to a pdf which loses lots of formatting and causes headaches.
