  1. Power Query: Make it easier to connect to files on OneDrive and SharePoint

    Connecting to Excel files stored on OneDrive and SharePoint is a difficult and confusing experience. While it is possible, it is far too difficult.

    As more and more move to working in an online environment we need a simple way of connecting.

  2. Maintain hidden rows/columns in "sheet view" so other users are not affected by the change

    Sheets view offers a private view of the Excel sheet when sorted or filtered, another common change is hiding rows/columns but that currently affects all users when sharing document.

    Allow for row/column views to remain private in Sheet View so others are not affects.

  3. Can we add Immersive Reader support for Excel on the web?

    Since Immersive Reader also handles math, formulas, and translation, it would be really helpful to have this available in Excel. Immersive Reader also offers read aloud and is extremely beneficial in support of accessibility for all learners/users.

  5. Word Wrap By Default for all cells

    Word wrap is not enabled by default. Usually we have to enable it one column at a time or cell at a time. Can we have it enabled by default ? (Option to disable can be there)

  6. Freeze first row in Excel by default

    In most spreadsheets the first row is usually headings. Can we have that row frozen by default (of course have undo allowed).
    Save everyone across the world the time to freeze that top row !
    Those that want column and row freeze options can do it manually.

  8. Add Office Scripts to the native Excel Application

    I understand getting full blown VBA working on the web is extremely unlikely (impossible?).

    So - make Office Scripts run on native Excel (and other Office apps). That way we get

    1) One common development language across all Microsoft Office applications

    2) Support for Javascript/Typescript in native Office.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Office native platforms already supports JavaScript/TypeScript for the add-in (extensions) model. The built-in Office Scripts/automation is not yet supported.

    We do intend to support Office Scripts across other platforms and hosts. However, the priority and schedules for such expansion in coverage is not yet finalized. We are right now focussed on delivering it for Online platform with Power Automation support. Please stay tuned for future announcements to learn about the coverage.

    Thanks,
    Sudhi

  9. Ability to hide an Office Script created in one Excel Online file from other Excel Online files

    I would like the ability to hide an Office Script that I create in one Excel Online file from my other Excel Online files.

    And, even more useful: while only scripts created within a file should display by default in that particular file's Script Gallery under the Automate tab, when we select "All My Scripts" (which displays my scripts in the Code Editor pane that opens at the right), it is here that I would like to see all Scripts from all of my Excel files, and from here be able to enable and disable whether a script is available…

  10. Enable Office Scripts to refresh Power Query queries

    Allow Office Scripts to refresh Power Query queries. It'd be very helpful to automatically refresh data using Power Automate, but that platform cannot currently refresh data.

    Hello,

    Thank you for providing the feedback. Your input helps us in making the product better.

    Reg. Power Query refresh action – yes, this is in our backlog. We don’t yet have an API that can refresh a Power Query. We’re working with the product team to prioritize the API. I don’t have an ETA yet. But, we’ll be monitoring this closely and update our docs once the feature becomes available. Feel free to email me if you need more details.

    Thank you,

  11. Excel Desktop vs Excel Online - online version should have all/most of the same features

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Paste/Formatting - When pasting into the online version, the format doesn't stay.

    ~ Sorting - There are very limited sorting options in the online version.

    ~ Copying data. I have about 300 lines of data that's about 10 columns wide and am unable to copy it so that I can paste it into another document and sort it the way I need (since online version has limited options for sorting, as mentioned…
