  2. Copy paste screen-shots directly without saving as images.

    At the moment user has to save the screen-shot as image and then use excel insert option to add image to the sheet, it would be awesome to have a direct paste option,

  3. Make changes on tablet or phone

    Excel online dose not support editing on smart phones or tablet. It will be more convenient for us to work on other devices other than the computer.

  6. All the features should be available.

    Some aspects of Excel aren't there on Excel Online so it makes the app more difficult to use.

  9. I think that Excel Online could use auto corrections

    When I use Excel Online, I always think that I spell everything right. Unfortunately, I am not. Excel could improve very much if it had an auto corrections system. Even though my computer has auto corrections, I believe that I can be much more accurate in my 'books' if I could spell all my words correctly. Especially if I have to show it to someone else, I don't have to have them correct me every time they see a misspelled word.
    Which is fairly often.

  10. Promote "checkout" from the "advanced" sub-menu to the primary context (right click) menu

    Editing an excel file on sharepoint while in a browser session requires the document to be checked out first. If the document is not checked out first, user gets an instruction saying, “To edit this workbook, check out the workbook in the Folder to the server (not to your local drafts folder) and then try to edit it in Excel Online again.” It is very easy to forget to check out the document in the first place because the checkout command is buried under ‘Advanced’ in the context menu. Why not move it right up to the top next to…

  12. Remove the "Download" option which strips content

    Currently Excel online has options for "Edit Online", "Edit in Browser", "Save a Copy", AND "Download".
    What is the purpose of the last option outside of the bad functionality that this option strips out some of the more advanced content in your file?
    Please just remove this "Download" option, as "Edit in Excel" and "Save a Copy" should be sufficient for all purposes.

  13. Inserting Cell Rows

    It should still give you the option to insert a cell row on a table even if there is a possibility of it negatively effecting the overall table because it can still be fixed.

  15. Make all keyboard & mouse shortcuts available thru online version

    It would be very helpful is the keyboard & mouse shortcuts that are offered in the downloaded desktop version should be make available online. Its very frustrating to not be able to select multiple fields that are not next to each other to auto-fill with what ever i have copied by just pressing enter. It's very time consuming. I love what I am able to do thru the desktop version but am unable to do the same thru the online version. Please modify/update!

  17. Lock information so information can't be deleted only added

    I have a muliperson spreadsheet and my headers have been deleted, the original list has been partially deleted and data entered by other is deleted. This is a headache. I want others to ONLY be able to add to the sheet, not delete or change existing data.

  19. Being able to move a row up or down and have it fit below or above an existing row instead of replacing it

    Being able to move a row up or down and have it fit below or above an existing row instead of replacing it. Right now you can move a row up or down but it wants to override an existing row and doesn't allow you to fit it below or above that row.
