    • Remove the "Download" option which strips content

      Currently Excel online has options for "Edit Online", "Edit in Browser", "Save a Copy", AND "Download".
      What is the purpose of the last option outside of the bad functionality that this option strips out some of the more advanced content in your file?
      Please just remove this "Download" option, as "Edit in Excel" and "Save a Copy" should be sufficient for all purposes.

      • Color or the text in one cell

        With the current version of Excel Online, once you change the font color of a particular text in single cell it automatically changes the font color of every text or data in that cell.
        It would be handy if we could use different colors for the text in one cell

        • Provide function like Fill Down, Fill Up and Fill Series of data.

          Provide "Fill" data function such as Fill Down, Fill Up, Fill Series, etc. instead of Flash Fill only.

          • color

            Why are we back to this gray scale color scheme? In what universe does anyone need that many shades of gray. It's absurd. I want custom colors or just MORE OPTIONS. I don't mean 12 blues, 87 grays, and 12 yellows. One of the many reasons I am on the verge of switching back to Google Sheets. Aside from the fact that nobody seems to be working on the color problem- the sheets are slow. They refresh every 5 seconds and oftentimes it will refresh while I'm working on something and lose all my work. Excel online has some SERIOUS…

                  • Make the keyboard shortcuts the same between Excel and Excel online.

                    In Excel hitting Ctrl Y on the keyboard is the command you can use to create multiple new lines in a spreadsheet. In Excel online the Ctrl Y combination means "redo" Making commands like this between the two would be helpful.

                      • My request or idea is that in Excel online allowed to make different filters or temporary filters and that these are not visible to other us

                        My request or idea is that in Excel online allowed to make different filters or temporary filters and that these are not visible to other users who are working at the same time in the document. Thanks. Carlos Gonzalez.

                                  It should still give you the option to insert a cell row on a table even if there is a possibility of it negatively effecting the overall table because it can still be fixed.

                                      • Create the ability to lock certain cells while being able to edit other cells in the same sheet.

                                        Currently, there is not the ability to lock certain cells in a document online, while also being able to edit others in the same sheet. It would help a ton if there was a way to lock specified cells in a sheet and also be able to edit unlocked cells in the sheet when editing online.
