    • Query and Refresh warning

      I would like to have the ability to trust data sources.
      So that a user does not get the 'Query and Refresh Data' warning each he opens a report and refreshes all connections.

      This should be a setting for site collection administrators or tenant administrators.

        • Support WEBSERVICE and FILTERXML to pull in web data

          These are very useful functions supported by excel, and the main reason me (and many others I know) stick with google sheets which has similar functions.

                    • URL based Data Export and Import

                      Given the online spreadsheet URL: https://progresssoftware-my.sharepoint.com/personal/sbobba_progress_com/_layouts/15/WopiFrame.aspx?guestaccesstoken=JwXF0rgoNVjWo1tlOnGO1ZCse83x68EVsa9kyK2ZWhk%3d&docid=1dd2aea19b1c14f8ba7be170c8fd5ecde&action=view

                      How can I access that same data in CSV form? If I was using Google Spreadsheet, that would be be achived using an &format parameter.

                      • How can we add images to a post without adding that image to our Files?

                        We share a lot of photos as an organization, but we also want to have a very tidy file bank. How can our users upload images and tag groups without adding that to the groups files?

                              • Add similar function to Google Importrange which imports data from another sheet

                                Similar to what Google spreadsheet provides Importrange function which allows to import data from another Google sheet, looks like this feature is not available in MS Excel online

                                this is must feature

                                    If Excel was automated to interface with FBook contacts, it would dramatically expand its use and users.
