  2. Custom Sheet View for Collaboration Should Have Option for Document-Wide Sheet View

    The sheet view setting is great, however each custom sheet view is restricted to that sheet only. If there was a 'custom document view' then I can preset a view for each employee who uses the spreadsheet.
    (E.G. in this case its for a job list, each sheet is a different client, there is a column called Job Manager, I want a custom filter so that each individual can select the view and only see jobs they manage across the document, rather than selecting on the sheet and changing view each time)

  3. Excel Online - sheet print area

    Excel Online - Set Print Area - would be nice to be able to set a print area that can be saved, so that when others use the document, it will print the same way without having to redo all the settings.

  6. Bugs i datoformatering

    Dato i kortversjon fungerer ikke som den skal. Prøv f.eks 10/9/2020.
    Og så ønsker jeg mulighet for egne celleformater i Web-versjonen også.

  7. Excel online Interprise Basic Suscription is out to date

    The online version of excel in the "Basic Enterprise" subscription is not Microsoft 365 and does not have the same features as a free Hotmail account, which has a more up-to-date version.

  8. Restrict editing sheet views by requiring the view to be saved

    Require a sheet view to be saved if someone adds a new filter within an existing sheet view so it doesn't modify the sheet view for everyone.

  9. Calling a worksheet function with Office Scripts

    I tried the below code similar to Office Addins.
    but "Can't perform requested operation" error occurred.
    I want you to be able to call worksheet functions with Office Scripts.

    async function main(context: Excel.RequestContext) {
    let sheet = context.workbook.worksheets.getActiveWorksheet();
    let range = sheet.getRange("A1:A4");
    range.values = [[10], [20], [30], [40]];
    let ave = context.workbook.functions.average(range);
    ave.load("value");
    await context.sync();
    console.log(ave.value); //error
    }

  10. Connect between 2 Excel files online with formulas

    I have two online Excel files.

    One is A
    Two is B

    I need to exchange the data online between them and connect/link them without the need to enter the data again and again since I have to do formulas and calculations again and again!

    Online exchange between two files is needed.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Can there be a lock option on the worksheets tab?

    Can there be a lock option on the worksheets tab? I work in recruiting and use multiple worksheets in a workbook and the tabs keep moving. This slows down my productivity when having to find the tab or relate it back to it's sister tab.

  19. Excel Online needs Sparklines

    Students are expected to work with Excel and finish their assignments. I (and many others) have a Mac. I use Office 365 online and am STILL unable to finish my assignment because I cannot insert sparklines. This is very frustrating. Thank you.

  20. Make comments filterable. It would be great to be able to only see "open" comments (i.e. filter out "resolved" comment threads).

    Make comments filterable.

    It would be great to be able to only see "open" comments (i.e. filter out "resolved" comment threads).

    It would also be amazing to be able to filter comments by month that they were added (can you tell that I use the comments to trigger people to help with end of month commentary? Haha!).

    Someone else has mentioned being able to filter based on person who is mentioned int eh comment and that would be excellent too.

    Great feature that has helped me so far, I just think these changes could take it to the next level.
