  5. Edit in Excel Online

    It would be great if it was possible to edit in the Excel Online. So it did need to be necessary to have the original Excel installed

  8. Please add data validation options for worksheets that are populated by surveys.

    If making updates to a worksheet that's populated by a survey, the cells aren't currently bound by the same constraints.

    Example: Say you have a question with yes/no options in a survey. That column in the worksheet doesn't automatically populate with "yes/no" options for data validation. This limits worksheet usefulness, editing and update ability, and can potentially wreck results, break charts and formulas, etc.

    Adding data validation both to Excel Online worksheet edit capacity and as an automatic part of Survey + Worksheet population would be very helpful.

  10. Wondering how co-authoring works with groups in Excel

    we have a group project that involves entering and editing about 30,000 rows x 8 columns of data in an excel sheet. I have been researching the co-authoring new function. Are there any limitations for mulitple users? We usually have around 3-5 people entering at the same time. Would this cause problems? we currently have gone away from Excel for this project and used Google Sheets. However, it does not seem very robust and there are frequent screen freezes and crashes.

  11. Allow user to set margins for page and printed page.

    2 things: 1. allow the user to adjust page margins when preparing and printing the document;
    2. Although Canada is a metric country (sort of), the default paper sizes are the same as the US. Canada does not use metric sized paper. Please adjust the default

  19. Allow option to switch off keeping cells in clipboard (and highlighted) in Excel

    In previous versions of Excel, copied cells were in the clipboard for a limited time, which many found less helpful. This seems to have been changed - but I agree with the commentator in link below that it is really irritating to have the cells still highlighted (and in clipboard) after copy-paste has been completed.

    Could we please have an option to disable this? That would please all of us!
