  1. Limitation of 50MB should be increased

    The limitation of 50MB makes Excel for the web useless for our purpose, it should be increased to at least 400MB, or be made adjustable for the company.

    Furthermore is the error message misleading and confusing, it says that the data model is optimized for online viewing and that one can press cancel to view, but it leads to a blank screen.
    It should just say "The report is too big for Excel for the web to open, please open in Excel app", and then a button to open and cancel to go back.

  5. When a user walks away and leaves themselves in a working document, if you are the document owner, you should be able to force them out.

    If you are a document owner and a user leaves themselves in the document; you should be able to kick them out of the document so you can continue working on it.

  7. Provide an option to always use the App and never use the online version.

    SharePoint tends to open the web version. Better to default to the app and never the web version for users who have no use for the web version.

  9. Encrypted workbook in windows unable to open on a mac

    Currently, working from the office and home. At the office we use windows and when i am at home i use a mac. Unfortunately, if i encrypt a workbook in windows, i only have access to read-only the workbook on a mac. I've attached a photo of what windows has access to and missing from mac version. I spoke to someone already and there is nothing that can be done. Case# 1004012456 This would be a very helpful upgrade due to some of us working from both home and work.Hope this is an easy fix. Please advise.

    Thank you,
    Edwin

  10. I have three "Document folders" . I have a One Drive, Local PC and Default.

    Please provide colorful icon options for External, System and Manual Folders. We should not need to use brute force memory to locate our most recent version of a file.

  12. I can't get in!

    I have to be on Teams for work, but I can't open excel files from Teams in my personal version of Excel. It's infuriating.

    Just let me open it!

  13. Add ability to share Excel files via onedrive without having the unsupported features removed

    If I share an Excel file it always opens in Excel Web removing the unsupported Features. I would like to have the ability to share a file on OneDrive so it opens on the users Desktop without removing the unsupported Features

  14. Allow linking out of excel for the web to network shared folders

    Allow linking out of excel for the web to network shared folders (curretly only cloud links function). Some data cannot be imported into onedrive due to corporate data policy.

  15. Need to be able to access spreadsheet with more than one person at a time

    If someone is in this spread sheet no one else can work. We have a dead line and we need more than one person to access the spread sheet at the same time

  17. It would be really useful to have the ability to create shortcuts on the Teams landing page to quickly access regularly used files.

    Many of my regularly used files in Teams are many levels deep so navigating to them can be time consuming. Having the ability to create shortcuts on the landing page in Teams would save a lot of time as you could quickly access these files instead of laboriously having to drill down though each level.
