    • Zoom in, so make it easier to view.

      Once an Excel document is updated to the SharePoint. I'd suggest that the User be able to zoom in, so make it easier to view.

        • Enable full screen view only for the work area in edit mode. This will help for live dashboard.

              • Zoom (+/-) bar on the excel online application

                I would suggest to include the zoom (+/-) bar on the excel online application as nowadays organizations are using excel online feature excessively to edit data on real time basis and it will become easier to display the data and have an option to zoom in and zoom out for better view-ability.

                          • browser tab shows name of spreadsheet instead of "XLSX File Viewer"

                            When I have multiple spreadsheets open in the web browser, it would be helpful if the tabs displayed the name of the spreadsheet instead of the text "XLSX File Viewer | Microsoft Teams" for each one

                            • Move ribbon bar pin and up-caret to the menu bar to make them always visible.

                              Move the ribbon bar pin and up-caret to the menu bar to make them always visible to the user. Otherwise, the user needs to adjust the browser's zoom level often to see the show/hide ribbon bar view.

                                      • Ctrl + Scroll Wheel no longer Zooming

                                        Until recently, I was able to use Ctrl + Mouse Scroll Wheel to zoom in and out of Excel Online. Since yesterday, this has stopped working.

                                        I can still use Ctrl + Mouse Scroll Wheel to zoom in and out of Word Online, which also controls the zoom setting on the Excel Online tab.

                                        This is strange.

                                        • when it's a shared workbook, you should actually be able to view it !
