      • Top bar

        Please make the option to hide the top bar or remove it. It's too big.

              • Improve msg when trying to freeze panes... "To freeze panes the selected cell has to be in view."

                To freeze panes the selected cell has to be in view. What does this mean? (needs clearer explanation)

                  • Make Formula Bar also visible in 'Read Only' Mode in Excel Online

                    Hello, when viewing files with Excel Online, the Formula Bar is not present in 'Read Only' Mode. In the cases where the cell content (usually a text) in one cell is too long, it is not possible to read the content without increasing the column width. It is not very hard to exceed the column width with some text, and very annoying. The current version makes the sharing of Excel files filled with text impossible to read for the other users. Please fix this by making the Formula Bar also visible in 'Read only Mode' (copy/paste and ctrl+c/x... disabled is…

                    • Support ink annotations in the web view

                      Excel Online should support ink annotations, at least for viewing, via the web browser.

                      • Slidebar for Workbooks with Numerous worksheets

                        The workbook my group is using right now has 120 tabs at bottom for different worksheets. If the last person to use it left it at tab #28 and I now need to use number 84, I have to click the arrows until I find the tab I need. Please add a slider to navigate through tabs more quickly, like there is in regular, full blown excel. Thank you!

                        • Please enable using Cntrl Button in keyboard to select multiple custom cells. We normally use to use it to check the sum from random cells

                          In the offline excel, we use Cntrl button and select multiple cells. We do this to view sum of values (below bar) between those cells.

                          • Need better looking interface

                            Things looks too white. More specifically, the scroll bar at the bottom of the page is all white and light gray. Very similar and really hard to see/differentiate where the scroll bar is.Add some darker colors.

                            Also, having a move/hand tool on the fly -- kind of how Adobe has it across most of its products where by pressing the space-bar and the cursor becomes a move tool. Very handy to navigate through wide pages, rather than using the scroll bars.

                            • Can not view multiple sheets on mobile phone screen - View Excel Online

                              I'm trying using Microsoft Online Document with excel file.
                              After I created link, this web app generated new link for me, you can see
                              https://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=http://wisdomaxis.com/technology/software/tableau/sample-data/World%20Bank%20Indicators.xlsx

                              I opened that link with Chrome app on 4 devices : samsung j7, sony z3 verizon, iPhone 6+, and Samsung Tab A. As you can see, 3 first devices just have only the first sheet, while last device (Samsung tab A) can display both 2 sheets, at the bottom navigation.
                              I suppose this is not issue with my phone, I guess Excel Online Web app detected screen size of device, then changed the display.

                              Please…

                              • Allow Excel online to be opened in a new tab from webmail

                                If someone emails you an excel sheet, you can only "inline" preview view it. There is not option to open in an another tab so that you can utilize full screen real estate.

                                        any normal microsoft excel we should be able to see the cell markings when we press F2, just as shown in the file attached.

                                        • Have a minimize button if file is opened in office.

                                          Whenever we open a excel or document in office ,it blocks entire mail and restricts viewing mail until we close the excel.Can we have a minimize button which will help in providing better view.This will enable user to open file whenever needed through maximize button it will also prevent restricted view.
