  1. larger number support

    Excel is still stuck in the 1990's as far as number support. Numbers greater than 15 digits lose subsequent digits. DEC2HEX, HEX2DEC and the whole family of related functions can't handle larger values (over ~5bytes). I find that I have to use Windows Calculator to do these more complex values -- it's hard when the free calculator has greater range than what should be a premiere calculation tool.

  5. Make Linked Images possible in Excel Online

    I have made a cool linked images feature, where a candidate's photo shows up (using a named range) when that candidate's name is selected from a drop down menu. But when I embed the dashboard online, the photo doesn't appear. Please make linked images possible. In fact, all of desktop Excel should be available in Excel online so that we don't waste hours building projects that can't be shared.

  10. Excel online opening to the last cursor spot vs top left

    When I open excel online it opens to an odd spot in my document. It appears the last spot my cursor was left is now the top right of where it opens. For example if I'm working in a document and leave my cursor on the far right of my page (there is no more data on the right) the next time I open it my file opens with that far right cell now as my top left cell shifting my document. When working in multiple files and opening and closing it makes the constant having to scroll extremely annoying.…

  15. Comments Filter for Mentions

    In the Comments pane, it would be helpful to have the ability to filter down to comments in which you are mentioned. Without this, it's difficult in a document with a lot of comments to find the ones you need to respond to.
