  2. Search bar

    I would prefer that when I use the search tool on a spreadsheet that the information stay in there so I can continue to search throughout the spreadsheet. Allow me to delete the info for the next search.

  7. show file location somewhere after search and open

    Show file location somewhere after search and open. Now when you search for files on one drive, they open, but it doesn't tell you the location of the file with helpful details like last modified etc.

    A small "i" in the top right corner as is in one drive folder view would work.

  12. When you "right click" on an closed excel document it needs to give you an option to email the document - not share - just email attachement

    If you want to email an excel document to someone, you have to download the document and then email. Please add a functionality to right click and email the document - not share - just email attachment like the current functionality in Windows - hold mouse pointer over excel document - right click - send to - mail recipient - attachment in email.

  13. Change default on the Excel Online Find from “Cancel” to “Find Next”

    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”.

  14. 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.

  16. 'Show Comments' in Excel Online should roll-up across ALL worksheets.

    'Show Comments' in Excel Online is really good; however, limiting it to a worksheet at a time is inefficient for reviewing a review. Maybe show tabs in the comment sidebar that equates to comments on other worksheets if it is a performance issue with displaying live links to all of them

  17. 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.

  18. Naming tabs when they are created

    When adding a new tab to a spreadsheet, it would be handy if you could give it the name you want in the same step, instead of having to create 'copy of', then click 'rename'
