  1. I feel like the desktop version of the app should just be connected to the internet and behave as if it was in the browser.

    The desktop version of excel should allow you to make changes while others are using. Additionally, in word and ppt you have to press the update button -> It would be better if it was just an always connected interface similar to the browser that made real time edits for all users to see.

  2. I would like to be able to edit the area under recent documents.

    For example under File the dialog box opens showing recent documents. Over the years some of my documents have changed and I would like the option of deleting some of them. Or the info on how to edit this area, Ive looked everywhere and have not found instructions.

  3. Locked File cannot be accessed / overriden by Sharepoint page owner

    Locked / checked out files should be able to be overridden by the file owner. Currently files are locked and the user does not realise they are preventing updates to the file by other users

  7. create the ability to access the drives and removable drives on your PC, not just One Drive

    Add a hard disk drive option which can show the saved documents like Microsoft office.

  9. 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.

  10. 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)

  12. Dropdowns not filling in properly when existing cell

    If I start to type into a cell with a drop down it filters to the selections but by default after I select the correct item either by mouse or a down arrow\tab combo the focus goes to the cell below instead of to the right.

    I would like to see a mouse click either honor the default enter action of the spreadsheet or simply leave itself on that cell so that we can just hit Tab.

    I would like to see the filtered list selection highlighted and then hit tab so that it would auto complete the dropdown based…

  20. Give explanations or links to how-to steps in dialog boxes.

    When a dialog box pops up with instruction of what needs to happen to get into a spreadsheet, such as, "may need to be checked in" please include a link or further explanation as to how to accomplish the necessary step to use the spreadsheet.
