    • 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.

      • Allow users to cut and insert rows in between existing rows

        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.

        • 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

          • modify excel online to open password protected files

            like other email websites (gmail, etc), excel online should also have feature to open password protected files without download to the pc, it should be open online by entering the file password

              • Copy paste screen-shots directly without saving as images.

                At the moment user has to save the screen-shot as image and then use excel insert option to add image to the sheet, it would be awesome to have a direct paste option,

                • 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.

                  • Inserting Cell Rows

                    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.

                              • 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.

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

                                        • Why can't I see the number of items when I set a filter, as I can in Excel desktop?

                                          Why can't I see the resulting number of items when I set a filter, as I can in Excel desktop? This is very helpful when working with a large number of entries.
