  1. More colors!

    Please add more colors. Very annoying to have to open Excel to use the advanced colors... defeats the purpose of Excel Online

      • Improve performance

        Benchmarking a locally installed office application, to a cloud-based application, I experience a four time slower performance. Program launch, file opening, file saving takes much longer that when I am offline. Online performance is too bad, and I try to avoid using it when possible.

          • how i wish I could still use Google Sheets instead of this !

            Excel is far behind Google Sheets for handling large complex sheets online, and being able to collaborate online.

            • Add "copy hyperlink to this cell"

              If you right click on a cell you can only add the hyperlink to that cell but you cannot copy the hyperlink TO that cell. This could be very useful when you have long sheets and want to jump to a specific section. You can just copy the link to that section cell and paste it in the hyperlink of an index at the top.

              • Delete multiple cells at once

                If you select a column of cells and press "delete", only the top cell is deleted. If I select all the cells and press "delete" it means I want to delete them all. Otherwise I would just select the top one.

                Is it possible to add this very basic thing?

                    tried many times and there are to many hoops to jump through and then i am prompted to pay for it when I can do the same thing for free somewhere else.

                    • big file loading issue need to be fix.

                      big file loading issue need to be fix.
                      instead showing loading at least load some data or tab or page ....
                      For user it is very frustrating if big file contain more time to open ...
                      at least make index view of big file and redirect him internally.
                      It will help to fast look and close .

                          • content copy paste issue.

                            1. its not very friendly, especially, if you want to copy the online excel content and paste if into outlook emails or excel or any xls.
                            2. its very sloooooow.
                            3. also, if there are multiple user shared, suddenly the excel file is blocked, saying you are not allowed to use the file.

                                      • Basic Functions

                                        The inability to select a group of cells, press ctrl, and select another group of cells is detrimental to the online version of Excel. Being user-friendly is the #1 goal!

                                        Additionally, in the desktop version of Excel, the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+;" inputs today's date. Making such functions available in the online version would be useful.

                                        • Excel Lite

                                          No doubt excel has a lot more in terms of functionality than other spreadsheet providers but due to same fact, excel is quite slower too.
                                          I suggest to have at-least couple of versions i.e. Excel and Excel lite. where lite version provide only basic (daily use) features so that we do not experience performance issues.

                                          Not everyone is an excel expert and there are many features which are not of use in most of the time. so it would be great if we can have lighter and performant excel experience. :)

                                          Zubair Ali
