  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  6. editing multiple sheets

    I would like to be able to mark several sheets within a workbook and make identical edits to them at the same time. I can do this in Excel by holding the shift or ctrl key and choosing which sheets I would like to edit. For example, I want to add a column to all of my exhibits, I hit shift while marking the first and last sheet I want to edit, then I go into one of the sheets and insert a column. All sheets now have the additional column.

    This also applies to printing multiple sheets, saving multiple…

  9. 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,

  10. Please give us the standard functions of Excel back

    Im working since some years with excel and using mostly the keyboard while doing so.
    Excel Online does not support the most basic keyboard functions. It is not acceptable to have to use the mouse to chane something within one cell for example.

  12. There should be a way to communicate to the person in Excel Online who has the document

    There should be a way to communicate to the person in Excel Online who has the document locked that you would like to use it when it is available. Perhaps, it should have a button where you could click "Notify Me when document is available for editing" as well as send a message to the user who has it locked that someone is waiting to use it.
