  1. Inverse of filter selection

    I like the fact you can select multiple items in a filter, but sometimes I want to see one selection of items first, then see the remainder after. I'd like an "inverse filter" option to untick all the ticked items and tick all the blanks so I can view the remaining items.

  2. Allow multiple people to sort the same spreadsheet differently based on their preference.

    For instance: I want to show only the entries I care about in a spreadsheet so I filter the spreadsheet. But when someone else tries to look at the spreadsheet they'll see the filtered spreadsheet.

    They could just remove the filter or I could remove it when I'm done but I can't really reasonably ask everyone else to remove the filter I set or be bothered to add and then remove the filter every single time I use the spreadsheet.

  3. Ability to expand filter - the filter function is almost useful to me without the ability to expand to include adjacent columns

  4. Quick pick filtering

    Desktop excel has the unique set of values as a tickable list when you click the drop down on a table column. This is very useful, and a real timesave compared to using the "contains" etc options in the filter context menus.

  7. You must have FILTER as an online option. Google has it. People won't use One Drive for editing docs if you don't

    your online version of excel states

    NOTE: In Excel Online, you can sort only a single column ascending (A to Z) or descending (Z to A); multi-column and custom sorting aren't supported yet

  8. Table Range Update

    After adding new information to a current table from an exported spreadsheet, the new data will no longer sort. You have to open the file in Excel on the desktop and manually change the Table Range even though it is already selected the new data. Once this is done then you are able to sort the new data correctly. Please provide a way to mitigate this little glitch.

  10. Allow Tables to be deleted

    Right now "the header and insert rows cannot be deleted" is the response you get when trying to delete tables. There seems to be no way of deleting them currently.

  11. Применение фильтров и Сброс всех применённых фильтров в один клик

    Для полноценной работы в Excel online нам очень не хватает самых базовых возможностей по работе с ФИЛЬТРАМИ (ПРИМЕНИТЬ ФИЛЬТР К ВЫДЕЛЕННЫМ ЯЧЕЙКАМ, ОТМЕНИТЬ ВСЕ ПРИМЕНЁННЫЕ ФИЛЬТРЫ В ОДИН КЛИК) как это реализовано в локальной версии Excel. Добавьте пожалуйста!
    P.S. Именно из-за отсутствия данного функционала в Гугл Таблицах мы решили использовать Офис 365, ожидая что такие базовые возможности здесь будут точно, но увы, а жаль.

  14. Automatic Sorting Option

    It would be awesome if every time the Excel Online Document is closed (or every Hour) the Document ist sorted in Alphabetical Order.
    Otherwise in our Case someone has to open the excel every day on a PC and sort it.

  17. Cell Count Information

    Please add the information readily available; on the desktop version, when you filter or select a number of cells or columns, Excel tells you at the bottom how many cells there are available and you do not have to select manually to find this information. In this current version online, it appears you have to manually select to see how many columns you have available after filtering. If I have one that filters to a few hundreds...that's still a LOT of work to do to select all the cells before you are given a count. Please add this functionality to…

  18. Sort columns and update formulae

    e.g. column A cells have formulae with cell references to their row. Column b has strings. when I sort data by column B, the references contained in column A aren't adjusted to refer to their new row number.
