  3. Have Excel Online save selected cell/position

    Currently Excel Online doesn't save your last cell position/location when you close it. However, if you open the file in the desktop version of Excel the location does get saved and is honored by Excel Online.

    So why can't Excel Online save your last position to make continuing where you left off much easier.

  6. Change fill and font colors like previously done in the Desktop app

    I'd like to have a variety of colors to choose from when I'm using Excel Online like I could with Desktop Excel.

  9. inserting a new row

    Currently if I right click and select "add new rows.." it actually automatically only lets you add one at a time. I wish to add more than this often and is very time consuming when working online in this way.

  11. Actually open an excel file, not an online one.

    I suggest that when you try opening the Excel file, that you open an actual Excel file, not an online one. This is making it difficult to change or even copy an excel online file to an actual excel file. I hate you excel online, you suck.

  12. Copy formatting from one source to another

    If I copy something from Desktop Excel over to Excel online, the formatting should be copied over as well.

  17. More flexibility for action buttons

    Office online viewer is great idea. But need to make it more flexible. User should have permission to set action button visibility for document. Like does he wants viewer to allow download, printing, etc.

  18. chat

    Is a great feature that users can chat upon each other when working into an on-line excel. However the use of the chat tool is not intuitive or user friendly. You should be able to select the person that is working in the table and send a message... simple and effective. It is even worse when the person is identified as "guest"
