  2. right click paste options

    Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

    In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

  3. Trendline with Excel Online

    Excel online needs the capability of adding a trendline to a graph. How is this not possible when it should be a basic function of any excel program? With my present job there's really no point in using excel online when it can't add a trendline. If google sheets can add trendlines then excel online should be able to also.

  4. List of All Tabs on WorkBook

    Can you guys have a list of all tabs per workbook in the lower right-hand corner, (as in Google Sheets), where you select the tab that you want to work on by scrolling to it vertically instead of manually from left to right by clicking the left and right arrows. For use in workbooks where there is more than one sheet.

  6. Make Excel LESS complicated to use.

    Make Excel LESS complicated to use. Too many similar functions with no assistance makes the software unnecessarily complicated

  7. Excel is meant for numbers but lots of users use it for storing text, more like a database. Why not develop aFilemaker-like data store?

    Excel is meant for numbers but lots of users use it for storing text, more like a database. Why not develop a hybrid Filemaker-like data store, that's easy and pleasant to use?

  9. Graph paper with translucent layers - to make architecture plans, locking graph sizes

    Please provide an option to make different locking graph sizes for architecture plans, it would be wonderful if these could be tabs that are translucent to make stacking layers that can be viewed overlapping. Useful for quick idea drafts.

  11. Fix the Regional Settings mess

    A lot of people are having issues with Excel Online regional settings, whether it comes to dates or formulas language.
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/how-to-set-excel-online-regional-settings/76c7a892-7d00-4969-9561-7455a5e1307a

    (just a few examples)

    Changing the locale of a spreadsheet shouldn't be something so complex that we need to post for help on a forum (to eventually get no answer anyway).

    In Google Sheets it goes like Files > Spreadsheet Settings > Language, and that's how simple, straightforward, intuitive and clear it should be. No settings that comes from other settings in another part of the maze of apps from Office 365.

  12. Enhance online Office apps

    MS Office is the best office system, it is streets ahead of anything else.

    I prefer cloud-based application and would love for the online versions: Word, PowerPoint, Excel to have much more functionality than at present.

    I pay for a OneDrive subscription but use Linux not Windows, therefore it would be great if my paid subscription included a greatly enhanced web-app Office.

  13. Setting to Block Excel Online

    I have some complex excel files with Macros and references to other spreadsheets.

    They are stored in a Sharepoint portal which exposes them to Excel online.

    As soon as somebody opens them in online it breaks the external spreadsheet links and breaks some macros functions.

    And since the macro doesn't work in Online would be great to have a slider, Block from Excel online. It would start to load online then see this flag make no changes and force local excel to open and download.

  16. Tie it to a wooden stake and set it on fire.

    As a user of this software I am too frustrated with it's missing features to bother making further comment.

  17. Include table expansion entries in drop down list.

    I have a table that auto expands when I type a new entry at the bottom, but the drop down list that is linked to that table doesn't update to include the new entry. A feature to allow drop down list to auto-update based on new table entries would be great! :)

  19. It would be a huge help is the Find function worked and it does not work in the present.

    I input hundreds of figures and have to ensure no duplicates or need to verify a figure was input. Scrolling up and down is "loads" of fun but it would be faster and more accurate to be able to use the "Find" function.
    And is there any way one person can hide columns just on your screen? while others are working on the hidden columns? It is a pain to have to scroll back and forth across 12 to 15 columns 2 or 3 times each input session.
