  4. Possibility to edit a text box in Excel Workbook or possibility to combine Excel Workbook sheets with Word text sheets

    Possibility to edit a text box in Excel Workbook or possibility to combine Excel Workbook sheets with Word text sheets.

    A Microsoft specialist suggested that I add this feedback to this forum (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeonedrivefb-msoother-mso_o365b/excel-online/b6226989-737e-4a89-8fe9-89743999543e)

    That would be really convenient because that way, people could share their combined files online and use only one file for tables and text parts.

  10. When hyperlinking to a Sharepoint location or file, ensure the link is maintained when you edit in Excel or download the file.

    When you download a file or edit it in Excel, and then reopen in the online version, all hyperlinks to Sharepoint locations/files no longer work. You have to edit in Excel or download in order to utilize many features, so you can't really work around this, it's a major issue with productivity. Anyone know of maybe a setting or something that will fix this or any type of workaround, it would be greatly appreciated if you can share.

  11. the Edit In Browser button should update to Exit Editing

    the "Edit In Browser" button should update to "Exit Editing" when in Edit mode. Sometimes I just want to make a quick change and then go back to read only. You can hit refresh but i always worry I'll lose the changes i just made. This would make me feel better the changes were saved but leaving the document open.

  12. Create the ability to unlock worksheet and notify user.

    It is often difficult to figure out who is locked in the document! It would be so much easier if you could just notify them...

  14. Avoid reoloading the workbook for edit

    When I open an Excel workbook and want to edit it within the browser I have to wait until it has been fully reloaded. On large workbooks, this takes quite a long time, especially when I'm on the road and have only a poor internet connection.
    It would be better and easier to open the workbook without reloading.

  15. Allow immediate editing via web and a simple toggle switch to lock dock on the same page.

    Enable user to immediately edit a workbook or file via web and create a simple toggle switch to lock doc from changes while on same window. The preview should not be the default option when access a file, unless it's purposely locked.

  19. User A shared a folder for user B by sending a link through mail, User B wants access the folder by creating shortcut on his desktop.

    Needs a shortcut on User B's desktop to edit daily. because users A & B both have to work on single folder on daily basis.

  20. Excel online vs. excel - Can we only allow the user to edit the spreadsheet online, by default, rather than always choosing an option?

    May I suggest only allowing persons to work in the excel online by default rather than giving both options to work online or in regular mode? It would eliminate confusion.. especially among old skool users. Perhaps there could be a feature somewhere under the file menu to export the online spreadsheet to a regular mode or pdf instead. This way, multiple people can work in the sheet with less confusion and locking (like google sheets!). It would also show revision history (as I suggested in a prior suggestion)
