When opening a *.xls file in Excel Web App, instead of waiting for 5 minutes to see prompt
"Request Was Taking Too Long
We're sorry. We couldn't finish what you ask us to do because it was taking too long."
and leave users clueless about why the file randomly not opened, why not just prompt clearly saying Excel Web App can only open *.xlsx files?35 votes
Give users feedback on the "saved" status of a workbook--Explicitly SAY that the workbook is saved rather than leaving us to assume nothing went wrong33 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. This is something we hear from many customers and are already experimenting with.
We would appreciate any specific suggestions on what kind of indication would be most effective for you.
Hide or disable the "Edit in Excel" option when users read or open a document from a SharePoint library in Excel Online
Useers who have ReadOnly permission for a SharePoint Library see the "Edit in Excel" option displayed to them. This will fail when they click since they do not have permission.

When opening a sheet and discovering that the sheet is locked because someone is accessing the sheet with Excel, we should have a button that will notify the user that I am requesting access.
This would encourage a discussion between the Excel and Excel Online user.4 votes
When I try to open a file that another user is accessing in desktop Excel, I get an error because the file is locked. If real-time coauthoring isn't supported on the desktop, it would be great of Excel Online would give me the option to open and edit a copy of the original so that the files could be combined later.4 votes
I have master files I use as templates, it would be nice to be able to save different versions directly into different SharePoint folders eg currently it will only let me save to the folder the file is currently say templates but if I then use the template and want to save it in "January" I have to do this locally or open to sharepoint windows in ie 11 and move the file across.3 votes
I have some files that have macros in them that I would like to be able to view without running the macros.
It would be even better if I could add data to them and not break the macro portion so when I open later in a desktop version I can run the macros on the new data.3 votes
For the Online Excel, it would be nice to be able to upload a file to cloud storage and cloud editing, from a computer that doesn't have OneDrive capabilities (Windows 7 and older). This would be especially useful in situations where you have to work on a file on a non-personal computer, from a flash drive. If the file could be opened in Excel Online and then saved to OneDrive through Excel Online that would be great.3 votes
I want to be able to clear the "recent documents" list that pops up when I click on "Open" link. I noticed that even deleted OneDrive document files are still on the list. If it's not automatically recognized by the system, then the user should be able to delete the name of the file on the list.2 votes
You can do this already today, though you have to do it from within Windows Excel (so I’m leaving the idea open).
To do it:
- if you just want to remove one document – right click on the document in the MRU and choose “Remove from List”
- if you want to remove all documents, follow the instructions here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/313454
Hope that helps,
Take a look in a Google docs , so then you gonna see what i am talking about.2 votes
Instead of giving an error when the file size is too big, rather open the file in the desktop app and provide a notification to the user2 votes
Add Support for Box.com to open and save too
You should be able to see has a document opened through onedrive, just like you can see who has the document open online.1 vote
NEED HELP! This issue doesn't make any sense. I've tried all solutions found in https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/office_online_support_blog/2015/05/04/excel-online-request-was-taking-too-long/ to no avail.
So now I'm stuck with a file that I cannot open online. THE WHOLE POINT OF SHAREPOINT is to COLLABORATE ONLINE. Not possible when you cannot open a file. I cleaned it up. Went from 6MB to 2MB. still not able to open.1 vote
There is a an obvious way to link to files on sharepoint. https:/.company.sharepoint.com/SITE/Folder1/Folder2/Filename
where an special characters are replaced. Instead the sharepoint URL's are crazy long and complicated.1 vote
