    • 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.

            • 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

              • Hide or disable the "Edit in Excel" option when users read or open a document from a SharePoint library in Excel Online

                Useers who have ReadOnly permission for a SharePoint Library see the "Edit in Excel" option displayed to them. This will fail when they click since they do not have permission.

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

                        • 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.

                                  I would like to keep the top 2 rows displayed as I scroll down. Is there a way to do this? I could do that in my old apple spreadsheet.

                                    • ability to share only part of the excel file with others

                                      There should be option to share only few columns/rows/cell with other people while collaborating. It will protect my data (nobody can edit it) also other can see it & work/comment on it in the next shared column/row/cell.

                                        • Support Background image for excel worksheet in Excel Online

                                          We have an option to set background image for Excel worksheet using Page Layout > Background. We can add images like confidential, draft copy etc. using this option we can show the image on every page on excel worksheet.

                                          This option works fine in Excel desktop application. However, in Excel Online, it says this feature is not supported.

                                          Even in SharePoint Excel Web access web part also the background image is not showing up.

                                          It would be nice if this feature is enabled in Excel Online/SharePoint Web Access web part too.

                                          Alternate options for background option would be setting up…
