  1. PivotTables created with Power BI using Analyze In Excel should work after publishing to Power BI

    Power BI's Analyze in Excel functionality allows Excel users on the desktop to create reports using PivotTables and cube formulas connected to a published Power BI dataset. However (and this is very hard to explain to customers) these reports only work on the desktop: even though Power BI allows you to publish Excel workbooks to an App Workspace, reports created using Analyze In Excel do not work after they have been published to Power BI because Excel Online does not support connections to Power BI. Please fix this!

      • More fill colors

        The color choices are limited, we like the color wheel that is in our desktop version. We assign colors for various catergories and there aren't enough contrasting colors to choose from. Please add the colors pallette back!!

          • I am looking forward to excel online matching the desktop version with it's capabilities!

            Sometimes the formatting on Microsoft online can be wonky. It's only in the desktop version (sorry if that's not the technical term for it!) where I feel really comfortable with the formatting and more options.

            • Show who is editing the Excel spreadsheet on Sharepoint so that I can track that person down so that I can edit the doc.

              Currently, when I try to edit an Excel spreadsheet online (shared with other users), I can't edit it because somebody else is using it. However, I have no idea who that person in the office is. It would be great if Sharepoint stated who the user is so that I go and talk to them to resolve the issue.

              In the interim, I guess I'll just use Google docs wherever possible.

                • Increase Excel Online file size limit beyond 5MB

                  Pls make Excel Online to be able to allow files editing beyond 5MB size. Currently it does not allow any file to be edited if it is more than 5MB. This size needs to be increased to atleast 50MB

                  • Let users edit Excel at the same time with their own filter update and one's change won't affect others

                    when multiple users making changes in Excel onine, a user's operation will affect others which means that users can hardly really edit file at the same time, is there any way to solve this issure?
                    Requirement: Let users edit Excel at the same time with their own filter update and one's change won't affect others.

                              • Row and column highlighter

                                Row and column targeting highlighter. I would love a feature that when I point or click on a cell, the entire row and column is highlighted with a
                                color that I can choose from a pallet. This feature would confirm when entering values into a specific cell, that you can ensure you are working on the right row or column because often sheets are very large and making sure you enter a value into the right cell can be a problem especially after hours of staring at a spreadsheet with many values. This feature can of course be turned on…

                                  This is one of the most ESSENTIAL features when working in Excel. Why the **** did you not include this in the online version?

                                  Did you conduct any user research when developing the online version? More specifically, did you conduct any usability tests to identify what were the most commonly used features people use when working in Excel?

                                  Come on, MS. Get it together.

                                    • Allow users to cut and insert rows in between existing rows

                                      Currently, when you cut and 'insert' rows, it pastes over existing rows and information. The insert function should insert the rows and move the existing rows down.

                                      • Add developer tab including VBA

                                        Enable a developer tab so that users can add macros and edit the VBA behind them. JavaScript would be nice to be able to use as well.
