  1. 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.

      • Advanced filter options

        Introducing advanced filters like in Outlook desktop version will be great.
        We have filters for subject, from, to, body, date, attachment filters in outlook.

        It is a pain to search using keywords.

        • Multiple Filters

          Excel Online is currently only able to filter one column in a table. It would be useful to be able to filter multiple columns when you have a big table and need to sort through data quickly. Please help.

            • Two features that are on excel but not excel online

              1. Custom sort isn't an option online -- To sort by one column and then a second column and then a third column; to sort by a custom list that you create -- none of these are options online but are very necessary!
              2. Currently on excel you can have multiple colors or formatting within one cell. It's a way to color code items. On excel online its either all red or all black, all bold or all plain.

              Thank you!!

              • Filter drop down boxes

                When using date fields on excel worksheet and having a filter drop down boxes it would be a lot easier if the drop-down boxes were just the dates below e.g 31/01/19 1/02/19 etc like the old versions 2003 excel. As like you know for 365 you have to deselect all then click the year then the month then the date and when running a business everything needs to fast and efficient and it's a shame they have changed this idea to make it slower.

                            • allow query to return more than 2 records on a search

                              when you need to query 2 or more records back you only have a choice to do a max of 2. it does not allow to use commas.
                              example i want to query to return records on
                              units: 234, 768, 823 NOTE it will only allow you to get back 234 and 768 nowhere to select a third value

                                • Formatting first and last columns

                                  Add numbers to allow first or last columns to be formatted not just the first or last. E.g. if I have forename and surname I'd like the first two columns formatted automatically. I have Qty, Unit Price and Total price on the right and I'd like the last 3 columns automatically formatted.

                                    This is a basic function that prevents people from using the online version.
