              • Protect

                Protect Worksheet dialog v Protect Workbook dialog. One states password is (optional), one doesn't. They are both optional.

                • Remove

                  Function dialog boxe for IF states in value if True can nest 7. Thought that had been increased to 64. I've done 36!

                  Function dialog for Vlookup, range lookup mentions if True it is the closest. It never has been the closest in range lookup true!

                    • I found a bug in Excel online. When I paste a value ending with 0 it is automatically changing it

                      I am pasting a value which has zero at the end and its getting changed on its own.

                            • Provide options to open Excel when it cannot be opened on Browser

                              If an excel file cannot be opened for various reason on the browser, an option should be given to the user to open it on the desktop/client.

                              E.g. I am getting an error "The requested range does not exist in the sheet"

                              • File Size Limit

                                If the buggy online versions of office apps can't open a file due to a file size limit, don't present an error but automatically open the file in the desktop version instead.

                                Alternatively abandon the webapps completely. They are far from being production ready.

                                • "Your session has exceeded its limits and has been closed" is unclear language, articulate what "the limit" is and how it's exceded

                                  "Your session has exceeded its limits and has been closed"

                                  Error Id: d5beba95-ab91-4d03-b643-f81fb062e0c8, 2018-06-13 15:57:51Z

                                  This error message don't clearly articulate what the user did wrong or how to avoid doing it again. A more detailed message, or one that uses clear language to define what "exceeded its limits" even means, would provide users with a way to avoid getting this error, over and over, as I have.

                                  • Give an option of specific excel files to be opened in the desktop version instead of excel online

                                    Currently Excel files that have links to other Excel files in SharePoint will not open in Excel Online, if the default in SharePoint is set to open excel is Excel online then an error is given. There needs to be an option to change the default application specific excel files are opened rather than global setting.

                                      • Fix Grammatical Errors in "Couldn't Open the Workbook"

                                        Please fix the grammatical errors in the following message.

                                        "We're sorry, we couldn't open your workbook... Do you want to try and open this file in Excel?"

                                        The first sentence is a "comma splice." It should be "We're sorry. We couldn't open your workbook."

                                        The last sentence has "try and," which is a common mistake. The sentence should read "Do you want to try to open this file in Excel?" In other words, instead of using "try and," use "try to."

                                        • more info on why the file cannot be opened.

                                          A LibreOffice saved as .xlsx file cannot be opened in the online Sharepoint. The error is very generic and it does not give even a starting point where to look. it would be nice to have a more detailed description of the error to be able to rectify the issues between the vendors of the office suits.
