  1. get the name of who's editing so to reach him/her out

    We're sharing xls files in Teams and sometimes the files are locked since someone in the team is editing it (or just forgot to close it !!!). It'd be great to know who is making changes and to contact him !

      • Create and edit custom Conditional Formatting rules

        It would be really nice if we could create and edit custom rules for Conditional Formatting in Excel Online, similar to how we can in the Desktop version of Excel.

        • Styles in Excel Online Ribbon

          Excel Online would be better if the styles option was available in the ribbon. Since we have multiple people working in a spreadsheet at the same time, it would be nice if they could have standard single click color selections to show the status of a particular line in the spreadsheet. Having to each user select the fill and text color individually each time makes for mismatches when selected as there are too many options and leaves too much room for error. Being as this is the primary method of multiuser editing, it would probably be extremely convenient to increase…

            • I would like to have more color options or the ability to make custom colors. (when highlighting cells)

              I use Excel to color code our schedules for work and It would be really helpful if there were more color options or the ability to create custom colors.

                Be able to copy and paste images within a sheet. You can only do that using full blown excel application.
                Currently can't even do that with existing images on the sheet

                • Multiple font colors in a single cell

                  Our group just recently started using OneDrive for collaboration of an Excel document that we use on a daily basis. However, when trying to edit the document in the Browser, only one color can be applied to a cell. When using Excel in a local file, you can have more than one font color in a single cell by highlighting the targeted words in the cell and then choosing a different color.

                  Recommendation: Make it possible to have multiple colors in a cell when editing an Excel document in browser like you can do in a local file.

                  • Disable autofill in excel online

                    Stop the Autofill in excel online.
                    Just give us a button to turn it on or off. I can see how it can be useful, but where I work it's usually just a hindrance and ugly.

                                      When you need the check out an item, give the user the ability to check it out, rather than just saying 'Return to View' mode.

                                      • undo

                                        Only the last person who made an edit can undo. This makes it very difficult working on a shared document.
