      • Someone else has this workbook locked

        I was trying to edit shared excel online and i received message like "Someone else has this workbook locked" now how i should notify "Someone" Please replace "Someone" with the username who has opened this workbook so another one can actually notify him to close.
        If its a privacy issue then Admin should notify about same.

          • Editing a copy online Error

            When an error occurs that prevents you from editing a file online. Can the type of unsupported formatting or shapes, or any other unsupported items be highlighted to make easier to suggest if the information can just be removed?

            • Disable subscription validation when using Excel off line. It was validated when I installed it and I should be able to use it off line.

              Disable subscription validation when using Excel off line. It was validated when I installed it and I should be able to use it off line with all features activated. When I try to use it off line, I get a message that the subscription could not be validated, so most features will not work.

              • Make comments in excel be also saved when downloaded to pc

                Whenever I download a copy of my online excel file and open it, it says "Excel found unreadable content in <filename>. Do you want to recover.." It doesn't include the comments which is very important to me as they are like my diary, reminding what that was all about.

                • Don't bug me with a dialog for a shared document every time my laptop goes offline. Ok to display a message in-pane

                  I get a popup for 'session expired' when my laptop goes to sleep that I have to click on in order to continue; would be better for it to signal the issue in-pane or not even bother me till I try to do something with the document. If you have 5 documents open in different tabs, is this going to freeze every one of them till I click Ok? This is not what Google docs does...

                  • When scrolling down one line in Web Browser, Excel randomly scrolls 800-1000 rows down

                    Example: When I'm on row 5, and need to scroll to row 6 or 7, the sheet will suddenly be on row 800 to 1000. I've tried using the arrows on the keyboard, clicking and dragging the side scroll (on the browser), and the scroll on my mouse. The most recent change I've made is added the top row Freeze Pane.

                    • Publish Bug tracking of this software

                      We need to have a public Bug tracking to report issues and see if they are getting worked on. All we see are NEW IDEAS but the existing ones sometimes don't work or there are some bad functional issues that get ignored.

                      • After making a selection from a drop down list that we created; Excel starts shaking up & down

                        My team at work, uses Excel in SharePoint for almost everything that we need to track. We've all (16+ people) have been having an issue. While editing Excel in the Browser, it randomly shakes up and down, the best way to describe it is the sheet moves up and down a few rows, really fast). One of my peers noticed the sheet starts 'shaking' after selecting a word in a drop down list of the sheet. To fix the issue, we have to completely close out of the Excel Tracker and then re-open it... Which causes a lot of extra…

                            • bug

                              Sometimes, when you do a search, Excel Online loops in a "scroll up, scroll down" loop - that is, it jumps between displaying one set of rows and another, and does not allow you to do anything. You have to shut down the spreadsheet and start again to get out of the loop. This happens in particular when the worksheet is filtered. I don't know if it is influenced by whether another user is working on the same spreadsheet.

                                    • Correct bug that sets formatting to US when editing online and prevents correct setting of data format - Change to UK but sets to Armenian

                                      The date formatting when editing in Excel online changes the format of a date field to US even though it was set to UK when created offline and uploaded. When you try to change the formatting back to UK, it seems to accept your instruction but the formatting displayed is not the one you chose. If you check the format again, it has been changed to Armenian.
                                      You have been aware of this bug since July last year and it still hasn't been addressed. This is a huge inconvenience to people in the UK as some dates may have been…

                                        • Excel Typing Not Working

                                          For some reason, both on my phone and the computer, excel's typing input box is not working. I am unable to type in any data. That seems to be the only thing not working for right now, but a pretty important one.
