  2. 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,

  6. My request or idea is that in Excel online allowed to make different filters or temporary filters and that these are not visible to other us

    My request or idea is that in Excel online allowed to make different filters or temporary filters and that these are not visible to other users who are working at the same time in the document. Thanks. Carlos Gonzalez.

  12. date shortcut

    Add CTRL+; to insert today's date into a cell and Ctrl+' to copy the contents of the cell above as per proper excel. Why on earth would these useful shortcuts not be included as standard? Why am I paying good money to use this when it is clearly a beta version

  15. Please show the person updating the tracking sheet when you try to edit using the brouser. Edit in excel reflects person.

    Please show the person updating our excel tracking sheet when you try to edit using the browser. When we edit in excel, if sheet is currently being updated, the message reflects the person's name that is updating the sheet, when we select edit in browser, the message only states we can not update at this time.

  16. Add notice to other member when someone is selecting the "edit in workbook" option.

    When someone is selecting the "edit in workbook" option, other member can see who is editing. Otherwise we have to wait without deadline.

  17. Add "insert.." , "delete" , and "clear contents" to right click options in onlne version.

    If I want to add rows to only a few columns in the middle of a sheet I have to switch to full version of Excel. I do this very frequently, so I miss this feature. As for clear contents, I can't highlight multiple cells and delete all at once. In full Excel I can do that with right-click and :delete contents." I would rather just be able to highlight all cells and hit "delete" have all deleted.

  20. Lock edit row/column when in edit mode online.

    When I edited or leave our file on all day sometime we have some accidents pressing some key then it replace. it will be nice to lock column or row when we in edit mode (lock to edit not effect to change format or arrange data. we still can sort or arrange all rows or columns)
