        • Please allow the option to auto convert Excel files so that I can edit them with Excel online instead of having to convert them manually.

          Currently when I upload Excel Spreadsheets sent to me from other departments, I have to "convert" them before I can make edits after I upload them. In google sheets, they give you the option to automatically convert as you upload. I would greatly enjoy this option for OneDrive as well.

            • Another option to view and open on the SharePoint site

              When you click on the link it gives you direct access to the workbook. That's all you see. It doesn't take you to the SharePoint site where it was saved.

              An option to be able to view the workbook on the SharePoint site before opening it will be great. Its just a thought.

              • 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.

                      • New Function =SORT(text, ref, [order]) is desperately needed

                        Ever growing and enhanced business reporting requirements eagerly seek SORT() function in excel. This function will undoubtedly help excel users and significantly improve reporting effectiveness.

                        This function must follow the same logic that is used by SORT option available in tab under DATA and should be applicable for any type of data (numbers, characters or symbols etc.)

                        Thanks

                                • Excel Online - Tell us what forces desktop Excel so we can write xlsx files that work in Online - or make online=desktop functionality

                                  Tell us the gotchas that force Excel Online to desktop so we can write spreadsheets that don't force desktop. Going back and forth between 2 different versions of the "same" product is so kludgy.

                                    • Change confusing error message (corrupt file or file format not supported)

                                      Issue:
                                      One of the operational Excel workbooks cannot be opened in Excel Online, on the opening attempt the following error message is received:

                                      We’re sorry, we couldn’t open you’re your workbook. It’s possibly corrupt or using a file format that’s not supported.
                                      Do you want to try and open this file in Excel.

                                      However when the file is opened and inspected in the Excel reach client no corruption is detected.
                                      The file contains External Links that are not supported (i.e. cannot be resolved) in Excel Online. After removing the "unresolvable" links, the file can perfectly be opened in Excel…
