  1. in normal Excel you can Ctrl+click on different cells and see the total or average of these cells ...... Excel Online only allows you to seq

    In standard Excel you can Ctrl+click and select various cells at random and see the sum or average of these cell value. Online only allows sequential cell selection for this. Is this coming?

      • Ability to see all formulas on a sheet at one time

        As a teacher, I need to see all formulas entered on a sheet. In Excel 2013 we had the ability to use Fn & ~ in order to do that - can't do it now with Excel 2016 online (which is the only program we can use with Chromebooks).

          • Isnotblank

            I believe in many cases I need Isnotblank instead of isblank.

              • could you please include the function to calculate quadratic mean ?

                Since you have harmonic and geometric mean calculations in your statistical functions, i suggest you bring on board quadratic mean.

                  • Group/Combine cells/rows/columns in Excel Online

                    It is so convenient and professional looking when cells can be grouped and combined to create title spaces etc.

                    • Larger Workbook Capacity and Sheet finder facility

                      Please increase the allowable size of the work book in the browser so it can accomodate large work Sheets with a lot of tabs

                      Also not being able to right-click in the Sheet Finder in the Browser version of Excel is particularly annoying and inconvenient and should be fixed ASAP

                            • 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…

                              • 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.

                                • PRICELOOKUP function, please!

                                  i often create spreadsheets for comparing similar products that I'm planning to buy. For example, the other day I was looking at 4k TVs.

                                  I can easy get a table into Excel from RTings.com but cutting and pasting but to get the market prices, I need to click on each product and lookup the current price on Amazon manually.

                                  I REALLY wish Excel Online had a PRICELOOKUP function.

                                  • 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??

                                    • Count automatically subtracts header row

                                      I know this count feature has resulted in millions of instances beginner to intermediate excel users reporting 1 number higher than they should because it includes the header. No one want to count their header!! Would be so simple to add that as a setting.

                                      • parentheses debugging view in formula bar

                                        Working with functions and formulae nested in parentheses is a huge headache for me. Some kind of indentation/tree view or a means of collapsing (and mouse-dragging) each parentheses pair about within a formula would make it easier to visualise and manipulate the hierarchy.
