    • 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.

      • Menu become drop down menu when browser is shrunk

        The current menu cannot fully show the rest of the menu options when browser window is shrunk to half or smaller.

        • Search Option to move on a desired sheet

          Hi, I have a problem to move on other sheets on excel as i have number of sheets in one file and when I have to find my desired sheet there is no search option as available in MS Office by right clicking before the first sheet and there are available all the tabs and I can also search by pressing any key. But there is no such option available on online excel. Kindly make an update at earliest.

          • When using the find feature, it would be helpful if the cell that has been located pulsates or blinks. Our eyes would zero in faster.

            I'd like to see the find feature improved, currently when a cell is located, the outer part of the cell is outlined. This takes a bit longer when we are using color in our cells. I think it would be more helpful if the cell pulsated or blinked. Our eyes would zero in on the location of the cell much faster.

            • 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.

                • Zoom in Excel Online

                  I wish there was a ZOOM for Excel Online (instead of zooming with the browser).

                  • can we please get working check boxes in excel online

                    it would be totally awesome if I created a doc in MS Excel and checkboxes showed would show up on the online version.

                    I manage room rentals and checkboxes are a fast way to manage payment. it looks nice on my desktop, but then I take it to the online veirseon.. they just get cut out. is there a way you could allow them to appear, even if they aren't usable.

                    Below is my document if you would like to see what i mean

                    • I want the online version to have a way to full screen

                      I want the online version to have a way to full screen... the online version can only see like 25-30 lines with the default row height.

                                • Improve filtering

                                  In the desktop version of Excel, clicking one of the column headers will display the filter options. This includes the free text search box which initially gets focus. This makes it very easy for users to click, type and hit enter to filter the data.

                                  Within Excel Online, similar functionality is available but it's much more tucked away. So more clicking and thus time is required to achieve the same result. Our users like the effectiveness of the desktop solution and would like to request a similar approach for Excel Online.

                                  • Add comments to sheet tab

                                    Add ability to add a comment to a sheet tab, similar to adding a comment to a cell. This would allow you to add commentary for sheet usage and/or instruction.

                                      The option to view the file is futile if the viewer cannot actually do so. I would remove the password

                                        It would be great if there is a way to freeze the spreadsheet and prevent it from scrolling to eternity - for horizontal and vertical scrolling.

                                          Some shortcuts applicable offline don't work online. Like inserting rows and columns, moving in between sheets..etc for instance. Please make this work
