    • When a document is locked (as it's being edited by another user) it would be great to know who is editing the file offline.

        • Row based Date stamp function capturing when data is changed in that row.

          Provide an Excel function that date stamps a row when any change is made to data in that row (other than the date stamp column). This is exceptionally useful when maintaining membership data, inventory records etc.

            • Improve filtering

              In the desktop version of Excel, clicking one of the column headers will display the filter options. This includes the free text search box which initially gets focus. This makes it very easy for users to click, type and hit enter to filter the data.

              Within Excel Online, similar functionality is available but it's much more tucked away. So more clicking and thus time is required to achieve the same result. Our users like the effectiveness of the desktop solution and would like to request a similar approach for Excel Online.

              • Move row/column inbetween instead of replacing

                This is supported in the desktop version. When a column/row is selected and it's dragged while holding shift it's possible to insert row/column inbetween instead of replacing.

                    When someone has a file locked (excel online), the error message should tell you who it is.

                    • Allow Tables to be deleted

                      Right now "the header and insert rows cannot be deleted" is the response you get when trying to delete tables. There seems to be no way of deleting them currently.

                      • Ability to change Calculation mode Automatic->Manual_>Automatic

                        Excel Online honors the existing calculation mode in an uploaded workbook but does not allow you to change it (you have to download to the desktop, change it and re-upload).
                        Need the ability to change it without download->change->Upload

                                      • Add ability to reference a cell in another sheet with a simple click (like the desktop version)

                                        In the desktop version of excel, I can reference a cell from another sheet in my formula simply by clicking to that tab and cell. For example to make ='Sheet2'!A1 , I simply have to hit "=" and then click to the tab and cell I want in the formula.

                                        In Excel Online, it is not as user friendly. In order to achieve that reference in a formula, I would need to type out the entire formula, in the process clicking back and forth to remember which cell I am referencing.

                                        • Add ability to notify user who is blocking access that other's need access

                                          When opening a sheet and discovering that the sheet is locked because someone is accessing the sheet with Excel, we should have a button that will notify the user that I am requesting access.

                                          This would encourage a discussion between the Excel and Excel Online user.
