  2. Why isn't there any feature to rename the file while editing it online?

    Okay, I'm editing the excel file online while in mail....great! But for some reason, if I want to rename the file, I don't have any such option. Kindly consider this situation, and provide a solution to it.

    Best Regards.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
