    It doesn’t matter if 20 minutes or 20 hours pass between connections. Fact of the matter is that EXCEL REACTS POORLY when the token expired. The application gets unresponsive and users often don’t know how to react.

    Excel should handle this issue in a more elegant way. Rather…

  12. Relative paths within OneDrive (links work regardless of PC or Excel Online)

    Relative paths within OneDrive - my documents folder is stored in OneDrive on my PC, so all items are synced. If I have a spreadsheet with external links, then it should work in Excel Online just like in Excel 365 on Windows.

    Ideally, DSN connections (e.g. MySQL db files), refresh of Power Query when opening in Excel Online etc would also work regardless of platform, but I realise that is tougher

  15. Accept more file types

    Extend your support to accept xls files. Google & Facebook marketing platforms are still using this format for exporting.

  20. Ability to choose country & default settings or ability to keep settting from original document

    When uploading or downloading files excel setting change automatically to "Microsoft" settings

    This makes a simple job complicated when it changes dates in 500 plus row documents.

    In New Zealand we enter date 14/03/2018

    14 March 2018

    Once up loaded or downloaded it automatically change to 03/14/2018 forcing me to find & fix all entries low than 12 eg 4/10/2018 - 4 Oct 2018 becomes 10/4/2018, confused??? I was too the first five times it looked and found all my work had changed
