Row based Date stamp function capturing when data is changed in that row.
Provide an Excel function that date stamps a row when any change is made to data in that row (other than the date stamp column). This is exceptionally useful when maintaining membership data, inventory records etc.

Add ability to reference a cell in another sheet with a simple click (like the desktop version)
In the desktop version of excel, I can reference a cell from another sheet in my formula simply by clicking to that tab and cell. For example to make ='Sheet2'!A1 , I simply have to hit "=" and then click to the tab and cell I want in the formula.
In Excel Online, it is not as user friendly. In order to achieve that reference in a formula, I would need to type out the entire formula, in the process clicking back and forth to remember which cell I am referencing.

Set range name & restrict to some specific user for edit
I have been using Google sheets and that gives the option to set range names and restrict each range with some specific shared user so that no other user could edit the range data. This feature does exists in MS Excel but Excelonline does not have the option to set range name and to restrict it. This seems very disappointing as I have to share sheets among multiple users with 'user allowed only' ranges & I am unable to convert my online sheets from Google to Microsoft. I am looking for this feature as I am using my Microsoft account…

Is there anyway to preserve information for a #REF! reference to assist resolution?
Is there anyway to preserve information for a #REF! reference to assist resolution? For example, if column CustID has gone missing due to a modification of an underlying SQL statement, so that the column is now named CustomerID, it would be so easy to adjust formulas relying on CustID if the bad reference would display as #REF![@[CustID]]. (Or something similar.) Seeing this, I'd immediately realize OK, I need to adjust to the new column, CustomerID. Without this information though, I need to do some detective work to figure out what the bad formula is supposed to be doing. In some…

CELL function added to online
In the desktop version of excel,
```
=MID(CELL("filename",$A$1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",$A$1))+1,255)
```
is the only way to find the current sheet name. On Excel Online, the function CELL does not work.4 votes 
Copy conditional formatting formulae
When using a formulae with row cell references in a conditional format copying the cell's format down should adjust the conditional formatting formulae's cell references accordingly to use the new row's cells unless I have the $ symbol.

Array Formulas should be able to be calculated in Excel online.
Array Formulas should be able to be calculated online.
To recreate the Query function in Google Sheets requires the following formula in Excel:
{=IFERROR(INDEX('General Ledger'!E$2:E$1000,SMALL(IF('General Ledger'!$C$2:$C$1000='102'!$B$1,ROW('General Ledger'!E$2:E$1000)ROW('General Ledger'!E$2)+1),ROWS('General Ledger'!E$2:'General Ledger'!E2))),"")}Already quite cumbersome when compared to Google Sheets:
=QUERY('General Ledger'!A2:H , "Select A, B , E, F, G, H Where C =" & B1)But when it doesn't even calculate in Excel online it's pointless as a Google Sheets replacement! I'm trying to build a basic accounting spreadsheet that can be used online that integrates with other online features I'm building.

Hyperlink within hyperlink
It would be great if the Worksheet can be programmed as having Hyperlink within Hyperlink, eg;
I have 2x spreadsheet, 1 is the one I steer meeting to the board and other spreadsheet is used by our projects team to update on progress, which has Hyperlink to the supporting documents for the projects. I would like my spreadsheet be able to hyperlink and go straight to the supporting documents.
Is it possible??

Please make LINEST work even when some cells are blank
Often, I have several sequences of data, of different lengths, that I put into a table. I use LINEST to perform a quadratic regression, but because it refuses to work if blank cells exist, I have to manually adjust the ranges for each column. If LINEST simply ignored any blank cells for its calculations, I could autofill the entire row of LINEST regressions.

View Formula on a locked/checked in document without needing to check it out
You are currently unable to see formula in the browser without entering edit mode.
With version control enabled you must check a document out to enter Edit mode. this is awfully cumbersome when all you want to do is VIEW formula rather than edit the document1 vote 
We as an organization would like see better services in EXCEL ONLINE, if could replicate the MS excel to the best extent possible.
Make us feel easy while using excel online as we would do while using an MS excel or a google sheet.
Needs improvement at a fast pace as we are looking forward to suggesting the EXCEL ONLINE over Google Sheets to our teams and our clients located globally.
For which the EXCEL ONLINE has to be on par or even have an upper hand to Google Sheets.Looking forward to have features similar to MS excel 2013 or atleast Google sheets!
