  1. a button to vote people off excel or a button to make people force out of edit mode including self.

    It can be a button to have people vote off the person whos editing it which will auto save it then boot him/her out of edit mode, or a button that lets someone get out of edit mode, because editing a shared workbook seems to be impossible if there are multiple people on it.

  4. 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.

  6. Inserting a Row or Column by a user in shared mode

    Inserting a new line by UserA can be allowed while UserB and UserC are editing some data. In theory this new line is like the last row that didn't have any data and user is free to enter what they want. It can be positioned when all user sheets are synchronzied.

  7. 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...

  10. 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.

  12. cutting data but not the cell format.

    I would like to move data (cell content) from a range of cells to another range of cells that have the identical cell format. to my knowledge this is a multi step process but should be only a three step (select range, move and paste). currently I select copy, paste to new range, reselect the original range and delete or select range, cut, paste to new range, select this new range again, click format painter then re format the original range because the "cut" takes away the format with the cell content.

    my suggestion is to ad another option to…

  13. Edit Template Help Service

    So I love using the templates in excel, but sometimes I'll change aspects of the template to suit my personal needs, like maybe use a class schedule as a work schedule, and I need help changing a couple of things. I wish there was like a live support chat that could help me with this.

  16. I wish I could talk to the person editing my document whilst they are editing it.

    If there was a small icon of the person editing my document and there was an option to chat with them which could appear on the side of the document. so while they are editing, I could ask them questions and get a response straightaway, that would be great.

  20. 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.
