  1. Excel Web when used from corporate Share Point should allow copy pasting of items/data

    When you open an Excel Document from the corporate/authenticated Share Point site, the user should be allowed to copy data. If you have the right to see the document, you should be allowed to copy and paste information directly without having to open it in the desktop app.

  2. Printable comments

    Would be very useful if comments could be printed as a PDF listing row, column heading, comment and cell it is attributable to all in list form i.e. comments on student tasks printed of as a readable document on one continuous sheet of paper as you might in mail merge to readily share with students. Currently a separate document has to be drafted or additional columns added which can make spreadsheets larger than they need to be.

  3. Move Excel out of MSTEAMS

    A file system, collaboration site, and meetings do not work well together in large organizations as it creates data overload. Stop Team! I love Excel. To improve it, please remove it from MS Teams. I detest trying to work on files in MS Teams and want it to go away.

  7. Too many clicks

    It takes too many clicks to open Excel files from online sources. It would be great to set a default of always using Excel on PC for files. Especially helpful since Excel online cannot open Macro enabled files.

  9. Remove access to entire iframed spreadsheet

    There is a black bar at the bottom of a oneDrive spreadsheet embedded in an iframe. It contains four icons, one of the left and 3 on the right for such functions as give feed back, info about the workbook, and view full size workbook. I would like to hide the options for "info about the workbook", and "view full size workbook". I only want web users to be able to see the area that I have specified.

  11. I like to make the choice between Ecel application and online for a complete session at least as option

    Hello, we work with Onedrive and share data. Here and there I need to copy data from multiple Excel files on Onedrive to another one. Excel online is not always my first choice and I like to have an option for opening the files always in Excel application; choice for session is preferred.

  15. Comments Filter for Mentions

    In the Comments pane, it would be helpful to have the ability to filter down to comments in which you are mentioned. Without this, it's difficult in a document with a lot of comments to find the ones you need to respond to.

  16. Save to desktop

    Make a Save As button on top when you open it online. So its easy to download/save rather than open in desktop and then save

  17. data connections between excel online files

    We created an excel file PARENT which needs to retrieve data from few diffrent CHILD excel files owed by (or shared with) diffrent users within the company. Each user controls and enters data daily in his excel file (CHILD)
    Those data entered in CHILD files need to be instantly retrieved in PARENT file (not manually!!) and based upon them we set some sheets in PARENT file to calculate reports and statistics. This is the point where the need of connections between files arises.
    We couldn’t find any way to connect files in Office 365 and I can not understand why…

  19. For Office 365 when sharing a worksheet, I would like the ability to lock down the cells that I have edited.

    I would like the ability to lock down cells after editing a shared workbook. This way if another user wants to edit those cells it would be a two step process to unlock the cells and edit the values a second time.

  20. Text of Comment in E-mail

    In the notification e-mail when a user is tagged in a comment, it would be helpful to include the text of the comment.
