  8. Why can't I see the number of items when I set a filter, as I can in Excel desktop?

    Why can't I see the resulting number of items when I set a filter, as I can in Excel desktop? This is very helpful when working with a large number of entries.

  14. Comments, changes & sizing on the online version vs. desktop spreadsheet

    1. COMMENTS....if a comment is too long in a cell then it converts to #### on both the online sheet and the one on the pc too. I put a comment in a cell, NOT using the comment function and I lost it, it became hashtags ### on both. The comments on the online should duplicate the desktop, when you go to a comment in a cell and click on it, a pop up with ALL the comments pulls up on the right side, I don't and didn't want to see ALL, just one. Wish when you right click on…

  17. I wish the "cut" command on cells 'protected' or 'not protected' can be disabled when a "sheet" is protected

    To prevent accidental "cutting" of format or formula on cells, I wish there is an option also where i can disable the "cut" command on all cells whether "protected" or "not protected" if I "protect the SHEET".
    I noticed that "cut" command is disabled only on "protected" cells and not on "unprotected" cells when i "protect" the Sheet which allows anyone to "cut" the format/validation of an 'unprotected' cell even if the 'Sheet is protected'.

    Take notes from Smartsheet for file collaboration... Users can collaborate on the same document at the same time without annoying freezing and knocking someone off of the document.

  19. To prevent accidental "cutting" of format on a protected sheet, I wish I can disable the "Cut" command when the workbook sheet is protected.

    The "Excel Online" is so excellent!!! The protected sheets and structures when uploaded to Excel Online are still protected. Computations are fast as well. It is indeed an online version of the offline excel.
    However, I wish you will grant this request:
    -The "cut" command on a cell which is "not protected" but under a sheet which is "protected" must be disabled also. I observed that If the sheet is protected the cells which are "protected" disable the "cut" command but the "cut" is still enabled on cells which are "not protected". I wish the "cut" command on cells which…
