        • Streamline the Editing process from inside Online

          You open a workbook in Excel Online. After review, you want to make a quick update, so you click Edit Workbook / Edit in Browser. But all you get is a popup that says you have to checkout the workbook, with a button to Continue in View Mode.

          It's 2018. Let the system check to see if the workbook is currently checked out. If not, then check it out for me and let me make my quick edit and exit. If it is checked out, pop up a message telling who has it checked out, with a button to alert…

          • Support features in the desktop app that competitors like Google Sheets support.

            Please upgrade your Excel Online to support fairly basic features that the desktop application supports and that competing spreadsheet apps like Google Sheets support. So far I have found the following issues:

            * Cannot edit conditional formatting.
            * Cannot name cells.

            Both of these can apparently be done in the desktop application, but lack UI elements in Excel Online. The lack of ability to name cells is particularly egregious as it is an important feature when making robust formulae.

            • Auto copy edited formula to other cells with same formula.

              Scenario is worksheet where same formula is in many cells but cell refs vary as absolute. On hitting enter after editing formula auto suggest copying changes (yes/no option) to other cells that contained same formula. Perhaps highlight cells to indicate extent of action.

                • Can we all have access to the password if a workbook is used in a shared group, i.e if someone decides to lock it?

                  This is related to editing a workbook and being denied permission to do so, since someone locked it.

                      • Serious problem of sharing Excel external folders!!!

                        Dear Developers, I have a serious complaint to expose, forgive my English because I am Italian. By removing network sharing of linked sheets externally from another sheet of Excell, you have blocked entire companies! I do not understand who a brilliant idea like that could have come to mind. Links to external folders do not work on OneDrive! How do we have thousands of external links to external folders to work in groups now? We use Excel since it was born, maybe who is now developing Excel, when we used it, was not even born. It seems to me that…

                        • What if we made deleting sheets undoable

                          I don't see why we can't do it, unless the codebase for dealing with sheets is so obfuscated that nobody at Microsoft dare touches it.

                              • 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 !

                                        • The old Control Y command is very useful, but it doesn't work here for actions like inserting rows

                                          Allow ctrl-Y to work on inserting rows; error msg says (erroneously) 'nothing to redo' currently
