  1. Multi user filtering without changing view of other users

    Generate the ability for multiple users to edit documents in Excel online and application where the users can filter for their screen only. This would allow for greater collaboration as multiple pieces of a project can be worked on in the same document without each users view being altered by one users filter.

  4. Stop forcing Sharepoint links to open using Excel online

    Link automatically open in Excel online which doesn't work for many documents that have macros or are over a certain size. Give an option to open in Desktop Excel or just download the file instead without having to waste time trying to load it in Excel Online.

  15. Multiple Text Colors in one Cell

    Multiple text color in current excel online is unavailable.
    The multiple color text will ease the editing & online coworking experience, especially in emphasizing a point without turning everything into the same color.
    Really hope to see this improvement updated soon.

  17. Provide an option to disable Excel Online and default to desktop version

    Excel Online continues to disappoint new users and is hampering adoption of both SharePoint and Teams. Even if the library and site collection are set to "Open in client application", every Excel file that isn’t opened directly form the library in SharePoint or files tab in Teams, opens in the garbage online version, then has to be change to desktop, then user has to close the useless window of the online version.

    There is no option to open in the desktop version for a file attached to a planner task embedded in Teams, so then it is either jump through…

  19. Keyboard Shortcut for typing in superscript & subscript, just like bold, italics, and underline

    If I am working in an excel spreadsheet (also in word for that matter), I can click on any cell and hit Ctrl + B, and everything I'm now typing in that cell is Bold. Ctrl + I does the same thing for italics, and Ctrl + U does the same thing for underlined. As a scientist and engineer I work a lot with formulas. Therefore, I would like to be able to hit Ctrl + "insert button here" and now I am typing in Superscript. Same thing for Subscript. Pick a letter that isn't in use, cause I'm pretty…

  20. Allow both fixed rows & fixed columns at the same time

    Currently the user has the option of choosing a fixed row or a fixed column, but not both. Would be nice to be able to freeze 1st row & 1st column at least.
