  1. Function in chosen language, not according to location

    I use Excel and other Office web apps in English, however my locale is set up as Czech Republic which I would like to keep because changing account to a different locale that uses English means changing timezone etc.

    My request is that functions language would either be based on selected language or there will be an option to select language specifically for functions.

  4. control the opening mode (offline) with sharepoint shortcut pointing at excel file (now enforce online)

    in a document library, you can enforce the use of client application. so excel does open in excel offline. when creating a shortcut to file, it open online anyway.

    I would like to be able to 'ban' online cause we use some project file maintained by lots of different people and i've noticed several cases of data loss due to version being ovewritten.

  10. Hyperlinks are lost when saved as a pdf using Excel 2016 mac.

    When a word 2016 doc is saved as a pdf the hyperlinks remain in the saved pdf. Not so for an excel 2016 spreadsheet which is then saved as a pdf. The hyperlinks are lost. Surely this should be a standard feature.

  13. Support features in the desktop app that competitors like Google Sheets support.

    Please upgrade your Excel Online to support fairly basic features that the desktop application supports and that competing spreadsheet apps like Google Sheets support. So far I have found the following issues:


    • Cannot edit conditional formatting.

    • Cannot name cells.

    Both of these can apparently be done in the desktop application, but lack UI elements in Excel Online. The lack of ability to name cells is particularly egregious as it is an important feature when making robust formulae.

  15. Merge cells if they have identical values

    When merging cells I get the following message: "When merging cells, only one cell can contain a value. The current selection contains multiple cells with values and cannot be merged." It would be easier if the cells could merge if they all contain identical values.
