  1. 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.

      • Include checklists in the online editing

        In desktop you can allow the program editing, but online you can't, checklists are the most common useful tool, just add it

          It would be nice if Addins that have been added could be removed again.

          • 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…

              • 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!
