  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Multi user filtering without changing view of other users

    Generate the ability for multiple users to edit documents in Excel online and application where the users can filter for their screen only. This would allow for greater collaboration as multiple pieces of a project can be worked on in the same document without each users view being altered by one users filter.

  13. 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!

    Formula tab is missing in excel which shows precedents and dependents and formula checking in that tab. It should be made visible even when we are working online.

  18. Edit pay layout in Excel Online

    Allow us to make page edits online. The print area and page layout at a minimum.

    I have a workbook with multiple pages. When I edit one page, it is the only page that downloads and I cannot upload it after an edit easily.

  19. Excel Online should show when saved

    Excel Online should show 'Saved' at the top of the document next to the title (like Work Online) when the document is saved. I've had a couple of occasions where I haven't quite waited long enough for the sync to happen and have lost some alterations. It would be very handy.
