  6. Go back to where it was. Find your self a new job

    in just seconds my machine is over heating, the application appears to suck, getting in and out of files and spreadsheets i have been using for 15+ years is not an acceptable procedure. in short who ever dream all of this up needs to be fired and put away somewhere. Everyone is not a part of the modern I really can't do anything and the fact that the software is assuming more and more control and predicting what the user actually needs or wants in frightening. This thing is a monster and older generation users just don't have the time…

  8. Excel Online filters causes dractically increased filesize

    I faced an issue with Excel online that causes sudden increase of filesize.

    I managed to replicate it.
    I tried this with Edge and Chrome browsers with same result.

    This is how I managed to replicate it.
    1. create a new excel file with excel online
    2. add text/numers to several rows in column "a"
    3. select whole sheet
    4. add filters
    5. close excel online
    -- At this point the filesize is ok
    -- Excel online and Excel 2016 behaves differently. Excel online adds filters to each column but Excel 2016 adds them only to column with some content. …

  10. The Error Messages could be more elaborate rather one liner. Atleast an error code which could help us troubleshoot more.

    The Error messages seems to be very plain English. It could have some error codes incorporated so it could be helpful in troubleshooting the issues / problems that arise in Excel Online. Instead of just "Give Feedback" link, there can be a link for more description of the errors.

  13. Permissions won't populate contacts from outlook

    My organization is a merger of two non-profits and we are in the beginning stages of Office 365 roll out, currently we use google to lock online spreadsheets and wanted to use that function for excel 365.

    However, when I download the excel file to edit the permission, I can't access my outlook contacts to choose the correct program director (20 + programs, 20 + tabs, 20+ individual directors I have to create unique access codes for and editable ranges).

    Currently, since my organization is in the middle of a merger, our company email is an alias while the underlying…

  20. If a data query fails to refresh in Excel online, the cause should be identified.

    The error message gives a link to a page that lists the possible causes, but why can't the error message just tell you what's causing YOUR query not to refresh? It would really speed up troubleshooting.
