      • Link directly to Excel tab

        Each tab in excel document should have unique url, so that sharing a link pointing to a specific tab is possible.

            • After a session expires, automatically reload the page, rather than prompting to refresh

              Instead of telling me my session has expired on a read only document, and asking to hit refresh. How about just automatically refreshing the page.

                • [Embed] if you uncheck "Include a download link", then disable view full size workbook

                  On the embed code screen, if you uncheck "Include a download link", then disable view full size workbook

                  When you uncheck "Include a download link" your are telegraphing that you "don't want someone to download you Excel file".
                  But you can still "view the full-size workbook" because icon is still active.

                  Improvement: Disable "view the full-size workbook" when you uncheck "Include a download link"

                  This would be a nice security feature Then this acts as a true viewer, like the good old ActiveX days ;)

                  Also prevent someone from hacking the script to get the download!

                  • Add the ability to close a worksheet via the "File" menu.

                    In the fat client version of Excel, there's an option to close a file. Users accustomed to that would be less confused if that option was added to Excel Online.

                        • Move row/column inbetween instead of replacing

                          This is supported in the desktop version. When a column/row is selected and it's dragged while holding shift it's possible to insert row/column inbetween instead of replacing.

                          • entering data, should be able to tab, tab, tab, enter -- enter should take me back to the row down from where I started.

                            category would be 'data entry' -- makes it easier to keep a good workflow going.

                            • Session timeout needs to be eliminated. Google sheets does not have this issue.

                              My company recently switched from Google Sheets to Excel online. Expiring sessions are very annoying. It creates delays in entering data (waiting for a re-load), extra clicks, and sometimes my data has been lost altogether. If the page is open, it should be active.

                              • Make it easy to publish spreadsheets on the web

                                Excel should easily integrate as a computation engine into a web backend so that spreadsheets can be published. Numerous spreadsheets exist in business that take advantage of Excel's formulae and computations. It would be beneficial to have these available through web interfaces. For example, someone should be able to post values that are entered into cells and then trigger Excel's solver to output a solution that is read from another cell(s) and returned as the result.

                                • Need detailed report with edited cells and data in online shared workbook facility.

                                  once after I shared an excel for all Microsoft users in our company I cannot see/track which users changed which cells and which data were changed. Better if I can track every data after change by someone (user,logged time,end time, duration, cells viewed. and older data and new data changed) these permissions should be granted only to owner who shared this document.

                                          The default on the Excel Online Find is “Cancel”, not “Find Next”. So when I type something and just hit Enter, it doesn’t save what I typed and doesn’t find it. It would be really helpful if the default were “Find Next”.
