  1. Sorting Not Working

    Advised by MSO365 support to raise a bug here. The sort function is not working correctly when using excel on the web however when we open the exact same file in the application it works fine.

    When we sort a date field in ascending or descending order (as shown in OnlineIssue1 & 2) it does not sort the data correctly as some data is still in the wrong order. If we follow the exact same steps in the application the data sorts perfectly as expected (as shown in Application1).

    I dont believe this is a data issue as…

  3. Sorting with merged cells

    When attempting to sort and the error pops up that some of the cells are merged and it cannot sort, it would be super handy to know which cells or cell range contain the merged cells. Would you be able to make that happen? Google sheets can do this, which is where I got the idea.

  4. Add Ability to Linear Fit

    Microsoft moderators were talking about it back in 2017 https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/creating-a-trendline-in-excel-online/6b12c339-02e9-466b-86a0-a64e17754610

    There should be no reason excel online is as limited as it is.

  8. Invert selection

    When selecting filtering options, after pressing the down arrow on the right of the column header, a menu comes up with various filtering options and the list of values available in the column.
    Sometimes there are many values I can choose from, so selecting those few I need may take time. Often I want to see the opposite, I mean so far I looked at for those few selected, but now I want to have a look at all others. This requires that I invert the selection: everything that was selected so far should be unselected and everything that was…

  9. I rarely use Excel Online, so my idea is not for Online, but for Excel desktop.

    In desktop Excel when I use Auto filters and press the down arrow on the right of a column header to see the list of possible values I can filter for, it lists all different values available in that column. If the value set contains blanks, or various errors, like #N/A, #VALUE, etc, all these appear at the bottom of the list.
    I find it useful to move such values to the top of the list so I do not have to scroll to the bottom of the list to see if there are errors. Thus the list would look…
