  1. It would be a huge help is the Find function worked and it does not work in the present.

    I input hundreds of figures and have to ensure no duplicates or need to verify a figure was input. Scrolling up and down is "loads" of fun but it would be faster and more accurate to be able to use the "Find" function.
    And is there any way one person can hide columns just on your screen? while others are working on the hidden columns? It is a pain to have to scroll back and forth across 12 to 15 columns 2 or 3 times each input session.

  2. Please allow searchable dropdown list in data validation

    If there are too many selections, it is time lengthy to find out where is it.

  3. Just Not Good Enough

    We use Teams for turnarounds at our Plant site. It was a challenge when we realized that we would not be able to utilize the online versions of Excel (or Word or PowerPoint) for anything other than simple word or number revisions. In Excel specifically, unless you are doing simple data entry with virtually no extensive calculations (or macros, pivot tables, etc.), then you can get by with utilizing the online version. For anything else, Excel online (at least through Teams) simply does not make the grade.

    It would have been better if excel, let us to use the various shortcuts functions, custom conditional formatting and rest of the features as available in desktop version.

  7. Microsoft forms and workbooks

    Users should be able to give sharepoint permission to modify workbooks, this will allow microsoft forms embedded in a sharepoint page to still connect to restricted workbooks.

  9. Trendline with Excel Online

    Excel online needs the capability of adding a trendline to a graph. How is this not possible when it should be a basic function of any excel program? With my present job there's really no point in using excel online when it can't add a trendline. If google sheets can add trendlines then excel online should be able to also.

  11. Make Excel LESS complicated to use.

    Make Excel LESS complicated to use. Too many similar functions with no assistance makes the software unnecessarily complicated

  13. Excel is meant for numbers but lots of users use it for storing text, more like a database. Why not develop aFilemaker-like data store?

    Excel is meant for numbers but lots of users use it for storing text, more like a database. Why not develop a hybrid Filemaker-like data store, that's easy and pleasant to use?

  15. Make it better

    For the love of God, make this better. It has none of the feature of regular Excel. You can't even add a trendline. The help button does nothing and search is worthless.

  17. Cursor controls that are unique to individual spreadsheets

    How about making cursor controls unique to individual spreadsheets rather than having just one global setting. I use several spreadsheets at any given time -- having the cursor move to the right after hitting ENTER is good for some of them, but having the cursor move down after hitting ENTER works for others.
