  2. view other users who have access to a file

    I want to view who else in my company have access to a particular file. Ideally, I want to ask a question directly from the source and get my answer faster, skip the middleman.

  8. Availability Offline

    I love Excel over Google Sheets, but I love Google's offline options compare to Microsoft.

    It would be great to have full availability offline to edit sheets without having to download an offline software to use. And automatic save whenever moving to a cell would be great as well

  10. Finding a way to have the "add row" and "add column" hot keys work online would be great (example SHIFT+[SPACEBAR], CTRL+SHIFT+"+/=")

  12. some how you make it confusing enough that I overwrote my work and now I can't find it. Great job

    Why give an option to overwrite your work with an older online version then completely remove any history, you stupid people

  15. if its too large to open online, give the ability to open in excel. the download but implies you're getting a local copy only.

    if excel file too large, click "open in excel" button. the download button implied youre getting a local file and changes wont be saved to the sharefile document.
    Alternate - "open in file explorer" and do what you want from there.

  17. Web App With Full Excel Funtionality That Enables Editing By Multiple Simultaneous Users

    If you can create a Web App that has the full functionality of Excel, AND enables simultaneous editing by a significant number of simultaneous worldwide users (perhaps several dozen), I believe many people would have great value for that.

  18. Custom decimal and grouping separation characters

    The local version of Excel can get from the local computer the specific and custom language settings. You can also override them in Excel. I'm talking about the decimal character and the separator for numeric grouping. In Quebec, we use the period as a decimal character (.), but in the French (Canada) language pack on Office Online, the decimal character is the comma (,). So our numeric keyboard outputs a period (.) and since the online version of Excel expect a comma because on the language pack, the value entered is considered text.
    All our applications work with the period…

  19. Make Charts More Changeable for Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Excel Online Users.

    You should let people type in the range of their chart. For example, if I'm doing a statistics project and I want to know how many desserts people eat in a week, and my range is zero to ten, then Excel usually does it one to eleven. You need to change that so that we Excel users can do our own charts online and not have to do them by hand on boring old paper. You catching my drift, here? Okay, good then.
