  1. Examine copy and paste function within the browser version of Office 365 Excel

    Copy and paste function is so hit or miss in Office 365 Excel.

    For example, formatting of tables is completely lost even when I'm copying and pasting from one tab of Office 365 Excel to another.

  2. Excel short cut keys are getting confuse with Browser short cut keys

    Excel shortcut keys are getting confuse with Browser shortcut keys. so I felt that Excel app is better than Excel Web.

    If browser Shortcut keys are disabled while using Excel Web, then it will be more useful.

    Hi,

    Thank you for providing this feedback.
    We are happy yo announce that the ability to override browser shortcuts is now available in Excel for the web.
    To override the browser shortcuts go to Help tab → Keyboard shortcuts → check the Override browser shortcuts checkbox.

    In addition, we’ve recently added more Excel’s shortcuts to the web version of Excel. In the new keyboard shortcuts dialog you’ll find all keyboard shortcuts that are available.

  3. right click paste options

    Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

    In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

  13. Adding advance sort features to Excel Online

    Enabling advance sort features in Excel Online. I have requested that my organization stop using Google Drive and one of the issues a lot of people complain about is the ability to do advance sorting like you can in Google Sheets or the Excel app.

    Currently, the only sort feature is ascending or descending by one column.

  14. Email notification from Excel Survey

    In Excel Online using the Survey option. When a survey is submitted there should be a option to have an email alert sent to the owner of the survey so they can check the spreadsheet for the results. Google Docs has this function and their forms tool works well.

  15. Add Support for Shapes

    For over two years now Excel Online has failed to support Shapes added in the Excel Desktop and this is major issue for many applications and document workflow.

    The compromise put in place by Microsoft is dysfunctional because Shapes cannot be Viewed or Edited in Excel Online and it forces users to either:


    1. Create a copy of the file to Edit Online (strips Shapes) > now we have two different Versions!


    2. Open the Excel Document in Excel Desktop


    I suggest at a minimum, that Shapes can be viewed and cell links to Shape text is updated if used.

  19. Date Drop-down in Surveys

    It would be great if you have a question such as "what was the date of the training session", to have a drop down calendar for the user to select the date. Currently seeing a lot of different date formats when we leave it to them to fill out. Skews the data for us in the back end.
