  3. System process control chart functionality. Used a lot in science, engineering, statistics and manufacturing

    System process control chart functionality. Used a lot in science, engineering, statistics and manufacturing. Very difficult to produce in Excel, and the addons available are difficult to implement at a business level. Something like Winchart, which is a very simple piece of software, would be great.

  6. Let us make charts by defining the X axis and the Y axis

    Let us just be able to say we want this range of data for the X axis and that one for the Y. The wizard is constantly doing stupid things, forcing you to guess the format which will produce the right graph and make special tables so the wizard will be able to produce the graph you want.

    It's basic to charting. This is the X. Why have to guess if the wizard is going to decide you wanted years on the Y axis and your labels on the X and population nowhere to be seen?

  8. Linking Charts

    Hi there
    I hope this message finds you well
    I think it would be a great idea that users have the opportunity to link charts from one file in another
    For example to link a chart from Excel in a Word file
    That would make it easier to upload information and summarize it, especially information including numbers.
    Thanks a lot for your time
    Have a wonderful day :D

  9. Can we please customise the ribbon or have the developer tab in excel online

    Sliders are brilliant in excel but you can only access via the developer tab which can only be accessed by changing the ribbon.
    Maybe there is another way to get the same result/function with the above. Either way I am just looking for this functionality.

  10. Colored Highlighters

    I don't understand why they don't have different colored highlighters this is usually used for business and numbers the highlighter would help to separate the work.

  15. I need to be able to have a dashboard workbook reading data from other workbooks.

    I have a dashboard workbook that I need to populate with data from several other workbooks. I need to map to individual cells. This works fine in normal excel when the documents are on my local machine, but they break when they are on the cloud. I have people using tablets who need to be able to update document that need to be displayed on the dashboard workbook, but this only works when I open the documents on my local machine to have them update.

    Is there a way to map to a cloud document and have it pull data…

  17. TELL ME HOW TO ******* SELECT DATA FOR A CHART.

    Maybe have an actual dialog and/or an ability to click on the sheet itself and select. If you simply must keep your tiny *** text box with no ******* help or guidance or interface whatsoever, at the VERY ******* LEAST have some sort of guide on how to enter data ranges available EASILY and OBVIOUSLY.

  19. Select different data at the same time

    I would like to be able to select one piece of data and add another at the same time to insert into a table. Like using CTRL to select both.

  20. make a drop down on a graph to have the options to print, make new page, save image, etc. look at google.

    On excel on a mac, after you make your graph/chart there is no place to print or move to a different page. On google sheets, if you make a graph it has a drop down in which you can select different options for your graph. Doing this it makes life easier.
