  1. Include option to turn off autocomplete in Excel 365

    Autocomplete for values already in column is enabled in Excel 365. The feature is often intrusive and causes more work than it saves. There is not an option to turn off this feature.

        Thanks for all of your comments and votes supporting this suggestion. We are now in the planning stages to support creation and refresh of external links for workbooks opened in Excel Online.

        Thanks – Micah M [MS Excel]

      • Allow for Check Outs

        • undo

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

                  • Enable a reminder to be sent systematically when a workbook is checked out longer than xx hours

                    When a workbook is checked out, enable reminders to be sent to check it in. Sometimes users just forget and keep it open for days on end. This could be based on a time limit (8 hours) or sent when someone attempts to open/edit the documents.

                    • Edit in Excel Online

                      It would be great if it was possible to edit in the Excel Online. So it did need to be necessary to have the original Excel installed

                      • Enable the drop-down list feature in Excel Online.

                        The online version of Excel doesn't allow the drop-down box option to work in files.

                        • Switch / Swap Cells on paste (Paste Special > Swap)

                          When you move data to a cell that already has data in it, it'd be sweet to have the to swap the data or to replace it.

                          EG I have data in A3 and B6 but want them to switch to each other's locations.
                          EG I would like C:C data to go to D:D and for D:D to go to C:C

                            • Allow users to cut and insert rows in between existing rows

                              Currently, when you cut and 'insert' rows, it pastes over existing rows and information. The insert function should insert the rows and move the existing rows down.
