  1. When an Excel spreadsheet is locked, the name of the person who has locked it does not always show up. Please fix

    It appears that a recent change was made to display the name of the person who has locked an Excel spreadsheet. Unfortunately, the name does not always show. I still get the message "Someone else is editing ..." with no name.

        • Add a site collection administrator toggle for opening files in either View or Edit mode as a default

          As the change to open files in Edit mode by default does not work well for many people,provide site collection administrators a toggle to set files to open in View or Edit mode by default, as their organizations deems fit.

          • Get a message as soon as a documented is not locked anymore

            If another user has locked a document for editing I'd like to get a message as soon as the document is unlocked again. I would then be able to grab the document myself and do my own edits.
            Currently I need to monitor the locking status continuously which distracts me permanently from my other work.

            • If trying to edit a file and someone else has locked it, have option to send

              If trying to edit a file and someone else has locked it, it would be useful to have the ability to message and or request access to the file from within the popup.

                • Pls Completely Prevent Downloads Of Embedded Excel Workbooks and Fix "Disable Download" Bug

                  Currently, Excel users can disable downloading of an embedded Excel workbook by unchecking "Include a download link" in the embedding options in Excel Online.

                  However, this does not prevent downloading of the Excel file. If using Javascript option for embedding, the download button and link to the workbook is removed from the bar at the bottom, giving the user a false sense of security.

                  However, a malicious user (or simply an unauthorized user/site visitor) can view the page source where the workbook is embedded, and view the direct link for the workbook on OneDrive. If an unauthorized or malicious user…

                      • SharePoint Alert for In-Browser Editing

                        If you cannot do multiple people working in record at the same time like Google Docs, then at least have an alert to come up on a current editor to make them aware that another user would like to edit the document because we can't always download the file when needing to make edits. They might not realize they have locked out other users.

                          • Add Chat Minimize when in snapped window

                            Setup:
                            Windows 10, Chrome browser.

                            When I have a window snapped to the left or right of the monitor the Chat option is available, but I am unable to minimize the chat window without first going full screen. When the chat window is open it covers the toolbar.

                            • Please add the option to adapt text orientation on spread sheets. The lack of this option makes it very difficult to effectively share.

                              Standard excel allow the orientation of text and thus makes it possible to effectively label columns. The lack of this feature on the online version is a huge disadvantage.
