  1. PivotTables created with Power BI using Analyze In Excel should work after publishing to Power BI

    Power BI's Analyze in Excel functionality allows Excel users on the desktop to create reports using PivotTables and cube formulas connected to a published Power BI dataset. However (and this is very hard to explain to customers) these reports only work on the desktop: even though Power BI allows you to publish Excel workbooks to an App Workspace, reports created using Analyze In Excel do not work after they have been published to Power BI because Excel Online does not support connections to Power BI. Please fix this!

    • More fill colors

      The color choices are limited, we like the color wheel that is in our desktop version. We assign colors for various catergories and there aren't enough contrasting colors to choose from. Please add the colors pallette back!!

            • Increase Excel Online file size limit beyond 5MB

              Pls make Excel Online to be able to allow files editing beyond 5MB size. Currently it does not allow any file to be edited if it is more than 5MB. This size needs to be increased to atleast 50MB

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

                    • Let users edit Excel at the same time with their own filter update and one's change won't affect others

                      when multiple users making changes in Excel onine, a user's operation will affect others which means that users can hardly really edit file at the same time, is there any way to solve this issure?
                      Requirement: Let users edit Excel at the same time with their own filter update and one's change won't affect others.

                              • Show who is editing the Excel spreadsheet on Sharepoint so that I can track that person down so that I can edit the doc.

                                Currently, when I try to edit an Excel spreadsheet online (shared with other users), I can't edit it because somebody else is using it. However, I have no idea who that person in the office is. It would be great if Sharepoint stated who the user is so that I go and talk to them to resolve the issue.

                                In the interim, I guess I'll just use Google docs wherever possible.

                                • Enable multiple users to sort/filter the same data table in different ways simultaneously

                                  Our company would greatly benefit from the ability for multiple people to log in to the same Excel Online document and sort/filter the same table in different ways on each of their devices without affecting the sort/filter of the other users, and yet be able to update the underlying information in each view of the table in a way that appears immediately in each table.

                                      • Row and column highlighter

                                        Row and column targeting highlighter. I would love a feature that when I point or click on a cell, the entire row and column is highlighted with a
                                        color that I can choose from a pallet. This feature would confirm when entering values into a specific cell, that you can ensure you are working on the right row or column because often sheets are very large and making sure you enter a value into the right cell can be a problem especially after hours of staring at a spreadsheet with many values. This feature can of course be turned on…

                                          Currently, when you cut and 'insert' rows, it pastes over existing rows and information. The insert function should insert the rows and move the existing rows down.
