      • Another option to view and open on the SharePoint site

        When you click on the link it gives you direct access to the workbook. That's all you see. It doesn't take you to the SharePoint site where it was saved.

        An option to be able to view the workbook on the SharePoint site before opening it will be great. Its just a thought.

        • Excel workbook

          Go a message that I could not open an excel work book because it was a shared workbook. The Idea is that even shared workbooks be able to be opened

            • Add mutliple window sessions

              Allow Teams to have multiple windows open. If you want people to utilize this more, then more windows like Excel windows as most corporate employees use two monitors

              • Row-based security will be nice!

                Users of the workbook will only have access to rows they have permission to view.

                  • 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…

                      • There is no way to select non-adjacent cells as in normal Excel.

                        In order to tot-up figures, it is useful to be able to use Ctrl+click and select different cells. There is no functionality in Excel online to do this currently.

                        • Add ability to Zoom in/out a workbook

                          Add the ability to zoom a workbook in the web browser, without zooming the entire browser window.

                                  • Zoom Slider

                                    This is one of the most ESSENTIAL features when working in Excel. Why the **** did you not include this in the online version?

                                    Did you conduct any user research when developing the online version? More specifically, did you conduct any usability tests to identify what were the most commonly used features people use when working in Excel?

                                    Come on, MS. Get it together.

                                    • Row and column highlighter

                                      Row and column targeting highlighter. I would love a feature that when I point or click on a cell, the entire row and column is highlighted with a
                                      color that I can choose from a pallet. This feature would confirm when entering values into a specific cell, that you can ensure you are working on the right row or column because often sheets are very large and making sure you enter a value into the right cell can be a problem especially after hours of staring at a spreadsheet with many values. This feature can of course be turned on…
