  8. make internet explorer compatable with excel

    I had to use Chrome instead of Internet Explorer to get to the point of even trying to open an excel 365 file. Yes...the file was too complex, but Internet Explorer stopped there. I tried the same thing in Chrome, and of course I could not open the file in Chrome, it did allow me to open Excel in my desktop application. Two Microsoft programs should work together better than a Microsoft program and another company's program.

  13. All the functionality available in desktop version if not supported yet by online version, why not be given option to active it?

    While someone use shared data available in MS-Onedrive using MS-Excel Office 365, and got the error message for any function that is not supported yet in online version, if given a chance to switch to the desktop version, such an approach will make the team work could be easier working together while using the data where is stored in MS-OneDrive.

  17. Have a rating for file performance

    Have a file performance index to allow to fix potential issues and avoid repetitive Excel crashing.

    Example: if file is crashing, we can work on hard drive, or if formulas or formatting too complex and slow things down, it is good to know it so we can do something about it.
