  1. Please allow macros within Excel online 'Edit in browser' mode

    You should be able to run macros while editing in your browser for an Excel Online Sharepoint/OneDrive document. Currently, you can only do this if you select 'Edit in Excel'

    • Office Addin Excel API JS - Insert Images programatically

      Hi,

      I am trying to add image in excel worksheet using JS api for office Addins.

      I came across this thread where users were asking to have option to support images insertion in office excel online.

      Now that it is possible to insert images in excel online from UI, do we have anything planned in office JS for addin in future releases to support inserting image to worksheet in excel online programatically?

      I didn't come across any documentation for achieving this functionality in

      https://dev.office.com/reference/add-ins/excel/excel-add-ins-reference-overview

      Please advice.

      Thanks in advance!

          • Please allow XML maps on Outlook live

            Please allow XML maps on Outlook live. It's frustrating that an entire excel file can't be viewed in "preview" in Outlook Live because it has XML components.

            • Macros & Scripting Creation from Excel Online

              Macros/scripting are essential to help users perform automated tasks. Currently, you cannot create, edit or view the macros inside a workbook on Excel Online.

              Google Sheets 'Script Editor' has been available for years, and it is one of the features that makes Google Sheets superior.

                      • A New Type of Macro: Command and Keystroke Sequences

                        I would like to propose a new way to add automation in Excel apps that (a) does not require VBA and (b) does not clear the undo stack. To avoid confusing this approach with VBA macros, let's call them "Sequences" for now.

                        The idea would be to create, name, and assign a shortcut key or custom QAT command button to a "Sequence" that is defined as a series of built-in Excel commands and/or key strokes.

                        This type of feature for recording command or operation or "Action" sequences can also be found in other software (a certain popular photo editor, for…

                        • Enable macros in online version

                          Basically Excel online doesn't allow for any coding or Macros whereas google sheets does and I was wondering if this is in the pipeline for Microsoft's development team?

                          I would like to have a floating text box along side my spreadsheet so when I scroll down I have my frozen panes at the top and a floating text box to the right of my timeline.

                          The file attached is the file I want to use and if you run the macro it brings up the window that is displayed in the Capture.PNG.

                          If you can think of viable alternatives that…

                            • Macro buttons, pretty please!

                              Excel Online is almost there... it even shows slicers which is fantastic!... but not custom buttons with macros enabled. That's the last step we'd need to make robust excel dashboards available for viewing across all platforms. So close, when do we get the cigar? ;)

                                            Can you please add a more descriptive title, as well as a description of what your idea is (if it’s a Feature in Windows/Mac Excel, please describe the feature).

                                            Thanks!
