  1. Editing a Share point file

    When editing a Share point file it should have link to both the parent page and the Share point home page. My users complain about having to go back step by step to the home page.

  3. Make it clear if i can save this in a way that it will (or not) be dynamically updated even if saved on my PC.

    If I save someone else's document to my PC, that they share to me in viewer mode, will it be updated when they make further changes or will I have to download it again? Obviously it cannot be updated if I am offline, will it be updated when I am online or will it be necessary to reload it from the live link? This needs to be immediately obvious to the users.

  4. Embedding spreadsheets in Teams from an existing SharePoint project

    In Microsoft Teams, it would be beneficial to be able to embed an Excel spreadsheet from an existing SharePoint project instead of only being able to embed a spreadsheet from the SharePoint project created by Microsoft Teams

  8. Multiple comment authors per cell.

    When copying one cell to another it retains comments but only allows one comment author.

  10. Lock a shared (or concurrently editable) spreadsheet in a clear, public way

    I have a spreadsheet shared via a public group in Office 365's Groups system. Users may concurrently edit the spreadsheet as long as people edit via the browser--when the download the sheet, the online version gets screwed up once that user uploads their finished work. There should be a broad, clear way to publicly lock the sheet with color/message.

  12. Mature chat and log that is part of the the document's metadata

    The ability to chat with other users natively within a spreadsheet is very important. I've seen references to chatting with Skype which is absurd. E.g. I share a spreadsheet with 10 people. Another person logs on and want to discuss something related to it. He opens up a Skype chat with me - conversation is hidden from the other 8 people unless we forward the "meeting minutes" - what a pain now 8 people have to either read this or file it - or just pretend they never received it. Or we open a 10 person chat - 8 people…

  13. Too easy to lose an "un-posted" comment if you accidentally click away.

    In Excel Online, you can right-click Insert Comment - the pane on right appears. You enter your comment only to accidentally click to say another cell and you lose the comment (as Post was not clicked). Maybe some sort of warning would be good?

  15. Collaboration needed

    When working with multiple people, we should have the option to send all of them or specific person, the notification via sheet itself to let them know it has been updated along with the ability to send annotation about it.

  16. Provide an Embedding Configurator for Office 365 / SharePoint Online, like the one on OneDrive

    In Excel Online on OneDrive, you can choose File > Embed, and you get a nice dialog that let's you choose the part of the workbook you want to embed, and a bunch of other options and then it will generate an embed code for you.

    But, if the file is stored in Office 365 / OneDrive for Business / SharePoint Online, there is no "Embed" option on the File menu. There should be, please add it!
