  2. Allow formulas working across multiple Excel files

    A very powerful functionality which makes all database calculation programs unnecessary.

    Simply put: allow formulas to work across multiple spreadsheetfiles.

    Description: it’s already possible to use a formula in a spreadsheet file across multiple sheets in the same file. But for more complexed situations that’s not sufficient. For instance when there are (relatively) a lot of users, or a lot of formulas per sheet. It’s also not preferable to have the user data and the management info in the same file.

    So the idea is that you can create a management spreadsheet file and then can use formulas which operate…

  5. Copy Values (and formulas) and paste the formulas referring to those cells

    It would be great to not have to create an equal sign and toggle between tabs; instead, it would be great to just select certain cells and paste the formulas that would refer to those direct cells. So i copy values or formuals in columns A-E, and I paste formulas where each cell I pasted has a formula that refers to those cells

  6. Customize the time zone in a workbook's settings and in the NOW and TODAY functions.

    When I use the NOW() function in Excel for desktop, it correctly displays US Central time, which is the time zone my computer is set to. When I use it in a new, blank workbook created in Excel online, it displays it in US Pacific time (my Outlook online settings are set to Central time). When I use it in an online Excel workbook that's shared with my work colleagues in the UK, it displays it in GMT. This seems like it may be a bug that needs to be fixed, but I would also add two suggestions:

  7. Conditional Formatting formulas based on other cells

    I would like to format a cell based on the content or formatting of another cell. This would become even more useful if I could apply the same formula to another cell and have the relational cell references remain the same.

    Example: If $A1 contains "X", then I would like B1 to be filled red. I should be able to drag the formatting down the column so that all boxes in column B are formatted based on the content of their adjacent A cell.

    I did my wedding invitation checklist this way using another online spreadsheet application and it was…

  13. When using VLOOKUP, allow table columns to be referenced rather than individual cells

    Currently in Excel Online you cannot reference table columns, only individual cells, making VLOOKUP functions difficult at best. The real answer is to put all of Excel 2016 into Excel Online so folks can share the document in real time and have multiple people working on it similar to Google Docs

  19. ImportHtml formula

    Can you please implement ImportHtml formula as well as GoogleSpreadsheet has it?
    It is very comfortable to be able to import tables from the websites and to use them as a data source for our spreadsheets.

  20. Being able to see formulas and click on cells to see a total

    When I am viewing in excel on line if I click in a cell I do not see a formula bar, showing what the formula is in the cell. I often highlight several cells to see a total, however this function doesn't seem to be in excel online.
