  1. 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…

  4. 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'.

  7. 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…

  9. 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…

  11. Microsoft Teams (Shared File Editing)

    While working in a file on Microsoft Teams (shared-style file editing and viewing) I notice that you see what others are doing in "real-time". I was working in an Excel File and when I would filter a column, other users would see it and think something happened on their system so they would re-filter their columns and it would change what I was doing. This can be a real nuisance in a company setting. Either the Autosave feature should be able to be turned off (forgive me if that's an option and I just haven't found it) or you should…

  18. Hide ribbon bar in Excel online

    Please allow to hide the ribbon bar in Excel Online.

    It is important to be able to prevent user from messing around with the sheet structure and even make the sheet not usable. It would be even better if only the owner can turn this feature on and off.

    Also, when user is using iPad, the ribbon bar takes up too much screen room
