  1. Please make it easier for the administrator to unshare a document or lock it from editing.

    Auto lock a document once a deadline has been reached. Make it so only the admin has edit options once a specific time has been reached.

  4. Remind off-line doc editors to release docs back to Office Online

    When someone chooses local Excel versus Excel online, push a notification every few minutes to remind them to save/release the doc back to the cloud so that others can work on it too. Or force folks to use Excel Online...

  7. I want to be able to save the edits to my worksheet.

    My worksheet is viewable/editable as a webpart in Office 365. I want to be able to save those edits, without going thru all the rigmarole of re-exporting and re-importing every time.

  9. let readers of view only files chose to hide rows / columns they don't need

    Let readers of view only files chose to hide rows / columns they are allowed to view but don't need. This would be handy sharing event info letting different users chose to hide the rows / columns that do not apply to their role. They could each create their custom print out for their particular purposes of the joint project.

    The file below is real life example of a Shriner Parade Marshal scheduled work in progress. Everybody needs some of this info. Nobody, including the parade marshal needs all of it. Hiding different combinations of rows and columns gives every…

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  17. 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.
