  1. 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.

  3. allow show detail in pivot tables online. I don't understand why microsoft makes it so hard to do basic functions.

    Why does microsoft want customers to step back into the 1990s for the online version. it degrades your brand. Show details in a pivot table is very basic. And its not on your joke of an online version

  4. Change cursor/selected cell outline color.

    The Green outline isn't always the best color for users and being able to change the outline color used to identify your currently selected cell would help immensely.

  5. Excel Sheet View - Right click on Excel Sheet Tab and see "My Views" and "Default View" for that sheet

    I have just started to use the relatively new Excel Sheet View, and it solved the issue of "filter changes only visible for me".

    When I started to explore how to find the view I just made, I intuitively right clicked on the Sheet Tab for which I just created a view, in order to toggle between Default View and "My View".

    My suggestion is to add an "Available Sheet Views" option to the pop-up menu shown when right clicking on the respective Worksheet Tab.

    There I would like to see the views listed that I (the current user) have…

  13. Stop linking "undo" list of action to all opened files....

    When I do "undo" in a file, and then realized that Excel jumped in other list open files to continue to undo things, it really annoys me. I always have many Excel files open. And they cover different topics. When I want to undo actions, it is ALWAYS related to list of actions in one file, and never across many files.

  15. Enable retention of file type when downloading from Excel on the web

    Whenever a .csv file is shared from OneDrive or SharePoint and opened via Excel Web App, it automatically converts it to an .xlsx file.

    I want to be able to download the file and retain its original format as .csv and not as an .xlsx file.

  18. 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.
