  1. It is terrible. It is much slower and normal shortcuts don't work. I'm very disappointed

  2. Unzip/extract files on SharePoint

    Extract bulk files on sharepoint online while it supports the same supportive features in excel, etc. would be a blessing.

  4. Copy & paste error if more than one cell

    It is not possible to save several rows and columns (in local Excel or other spreadsheets) and paste them back into an Excel published online to continue the work. In this way it was possible to paste data from different rows and columns. Now it is only possible to do it in the user's private online environment. In the published ones, it is only possible to copy and paste into a cell, requiring also to click on it (before only control+V is needed).

    Has this problem been detected? Is there a planned solution?

    Thank you!

  7. Spreadsheet locked for editing by you

    There is a bug which seems to occur that when you try to move an excel spreadsheet that you previously had open (which you are not using currently) with in SharePoint document folders, it says you can't move it because it is locked by yourself.
    Another version of this same error is that I can open a document online and then choose to open in Excel and then when I try to edit the workbook it says file in use and again it is your name. I have turned my computer completely on and off again and sometimes it fixes…

  14. Can't open workbook on Web message due to external links: Have a visual in excel web for unsupported features

    I would like to see excel web have either red text or a visual message indicating that a feature is blocked.

    Examples:
    1. If a chart visual isn't supported than have a little grey square that says "Excel web don't support X kind of chart. Click here to view it in excel desktop"
    2. if a certain cell query isn't supported than maybe have it highlighted with Red text.

  17. If I ask to 'open in excel' please do not ask me if I would like to 'continue editing here' as in the webpage.

    Clearly, I have elected to 'Open in Excel'. Why is my only option thereafter to either 'continue working in the webpage I just asked to leave' or to 'provide feedback'. Who designed this? this is really 101 stuff.

  18. Shortcut keys sometimes don't work

    About once or twice a day, an error message pops up that the most basic shortcut keys (liek CTRL+C, CTRL+V, or CTRL+X) don't work, and I can only use the mouse. Can you fix that? It's horrible.

    Also, CTRL+Z sometimes stops working, and the program says that "There's nothing to retreat", where I've been editing the sheet for hours

  19. 'sid:<skype_business_email>' is not working in Excel online but it working in Excel.

    in excel column if we have skype url like 'sid:abc@xy.com'. If I click this link in local Excel it is opening skype for business chat appropriately. But when I click this link during Excel online in browser, then it is not opening correctly.
    I am not sure is this kind of bug rather than new feature.

  20. Bug: Formulas not displayed in the Excel interface language

    In Excel online, the formulas are not displayed in the same language that the interface is. For example, interface in English and formulas in French.
