    • In Excel, it could be a useful feature to be able to attach files (for informational backup purposes) to an excel workbook.

      In Excel, it could be a useful feature to be able to attach files (for informational backup purposes) to an excel workbook. This would help the user be able to trace back to important source documents.

            • Turn each row into a word document based on the column/field

              Create word document based on excel columns.
              Each column title/ field becomes the heading in a document.
              One row one document.

              Not even google thought of this...

              If you can do it vice versa, everybody will quit google and go with azure.

                • Add Actions for Excel in the IFTTT service

                  IFTTT is a way to connect services together based on Triggers and Actions. Being able to use Actions to import data from other services via Triggers would allow users to chart and track many different things.
                  Skype, OneDrive, and OneNote already have this capability.

                  Example Actions would include:
                  Add row to Worksheet
                  Update cell in Worksheet
                  Add tab to Workbook
                  Run a macro

                          in school we enjoy customising our charts and seeing what they all look like. We can not do that if we dont have access to them so please give us access.

                            • Allow pasting larger amounts of data into Excel Online

                              This 100k limit is very inconvenient and small. We are trying to migrate our users from Google Sheets to Excel Online and SharePoint. They regularly paste 4000+ lines of data at a time from Excel desktop to Google Sheets, and it works no problem.
                              With Excel online they are going to have to break it down into selections of 500 or so. Very time consuming for what we are trying to do. How can we get this limit raised?

                              • There should be a way to import a pre-existing "Forms" into Excel on OneDrive

                                It's great having the option to create a "Form" from Excel but it would be helpful to have a way to import a form that has already been created into one drive excel and have the data update live.

                                    Would be not be nice to be able to move a document from one folder to another when you are in 365? Now I have to save it to my computer from 365 and then click and drag it to the folder I want.

                                        • Allow VLOOKUP across Online workbooks

                                          In Excel client, it is possible to define a VLOOKUP across two workbooks. Not just sheets within a Workbook, but across two different files. Excel will retrieve and keep the filename and path.

                                          At one time this allowed me to create a complex (ever changing) network of various different but related data listings, without having to copy list 1 to workbook 2 for VLOOKUP validation. The files were stored on a fileserver that everybody had access to using the same Drive letter. Yes, this is old school.
