  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  5. 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.

  12. fix problem with page up / down scrolling

    I hit Page Down and see I'm on line 64; then I hit Page Up and suddenly, I'm on line 14; if I hit Page Down again, it goes back to 64, ad infinitum -- the app skips the several pages in between. If I use the arrow keys, I can get back in control and get to the rows the app was jumping over.

  16. Don't show file size limitations while opening in OneDrive. Its so confusing, opening it in Excel and wondering if its saved online or not.

    Don't show file size limitations while opening in OneDrive. Its so confusing, opening it in Excel and wondering if its saved online or not.

    Atleast get inspired by the Google sheets. See how seamlessly it shows up online documents in the browser itself, without any fuss about file size , easy to define permission sets etc

  17. Format dates consistently

    You can stop Excel INCONSISTENTLY formatting some dates as numbers, some in US format and some in UK format - even within the same column! It makes Excel UTTERLY USELESS, which is why I saved in Open Office format - which Excel online now can't open.

  19. Please activate Conditional formatting, freezing view like Google offers. The online file gets corrupted often resulting in multiple upload

    Please activate Conditional formatting, freezing view like Google offers. The online file gets corrupted often resulting in multiple upload. Franchise/ service support should be made available.

  20. 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.
