Allow me to change regional settings: date formatting (mm/dd/yy, dd/mm/yy), thousands/decimal separators (period vs comma), formula language
Excel Online decides how to show dates and numbers and formulas based on where I live. I want to be able to choose how to display these Excel items. For dates, I might want mm/dd/yyyy, or I might want dd/mm/yyyy. My Excel formulas should be in the language of the application, and not based on where I live.179 votes

There is no technical reason to expire sessions whereas currently Excel Online (and word) get their sessions expired after a few hours. Please could the session model be fixed so that sessions expire only when deemed necessary for security reasons (at which point a re-login would be required) i.e. just like google docs.
Automatically refreshing the page would be a short-term workaround.
This problem prevents online applications having parity with desktop applications, even where the required feature subset is fully supported.1 vote
