  5. Do not use colons in the sharing link as it does not work well with chat programs.

    Use a shortened link or don't use colons or other protected characters in the URL when sharing a link as it doesn't work well with chat programs.

  7. Sharing a workbook

    When a workbook is designed by team managers can there be a way to identify who has Excel locked so we can reach out to them?

  9. Improvement on Office 365 concorrency

    Consider a scenario
    WHEN One use of shared excel is editing excel
    THEN it is in locked state
    WHEN Other user tries to access and edit same shared excel
    WHEN Both Users are geographically separated and don't have communication channel to communicate need to edit excel.
    THEN Blocked user should be able to send intimation to Editing user that he / she wants to Edit
    AND the intimation should come in Editing user's session.

  11. Currently it is not possible to filter the lines with an option to leave the sheet unfiltered for the users. This would improve excel a lot.

    Currently it is not possible to filter the lines with an option to leave the sheet unfiltered for the users. This would improve excel a lot and would enable more convenient cooperation.

  12. Please include chat like Google Docs has so you can talk to someone editing the spreadsheet

    I would like to chat with the person who is working with me on the spreadsheet without messing up anything inside of the actual spreadsheet. Please include a "Chat with Users" feature, where you can select from the people editing the spreadsheet and start a chat.
    Thank you (and great job on Excel Online)

  13. Display the user who has the Excel sheet checked out

    There is currently no way to determine who has the Excel sheet locked / checked out. How does one determine who to talk to in order to allow the rest of the users access to the file?

  18. SEE THE LOCKING PERSON IN ONLINE SHARING

    WHEN SOMEONE USES THE EXCEL VERSION FOR A SHARED DOCUMENT (INSTEAD OF THE ONLINE EXCEL VERSION), WHY DON'T WE SEE THE NAME OF THE LOCKING GROUP-MEMBER? SO THAT WE CAN WARN THEM ?

  20. Please, create the option to protect sheets and to know who made changes.

    So we can protect what the people who we share with can edit
