      • 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.

          • 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.

            Now in the Online world, I want people to work on different workbooks,…

            • 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.

                      • Despite appropriate location setting, entry into date formatted cells is still in US order.

                        cells are formatted to display dd-mmm-yy for the appropriate location - e.g. Australia
                        but when entering data, it currently must be mm-dd-yy or wrong date is entered.

                        • Give us a button where we can open the form in Excel

                          Funny how there's a disclaimer at the top saying "There are some features in your workbook that we can't show in the browser.". with a "Learn more" button right next to it.
                          Open the "Learn More" and it says that there's stuff we can't do.. but we can if we open in Excel. Unfortunately there's no obvious button where we can actually open the document in Excel. *sigh*

                              • 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?
