    Thanks for all of your comments and votes supporting this suggestion. We are now in the planning stages to support creation and refresh of external links for workbooks opened in Excel Online.

    Thanks – Micah M [MS Excel]

  3. Enable the drop-down list feature in Excel Online.

    The online version of Excel doesn't allow the drop-down box option to work in files.

  6. Create the ability to lock certain cells while being able to edit other cells in the same sheet.

    Currently, there is not the ability to lock certain cells in a document online, while also being able to edit others in the same sheet. It would help a ton if there was a way to lock specified cells in a sheet and also be able to edit unlocked cells in the sheet when editing online.

  7. Multiple font colors in a single cell

    Our group just recently started using OneDrive for collaboration of an Excel document that we use on a daily basis. However, when trying to edit the document in the Browser, only one color can be applied to a cell. When using Excel in a local file, you can have more than one font color in a single cell by highlighting the targeted words in the cell and then choosing a different color.

    Recommendation: Make it possible to have multiple colors in a cell when editing an Excel document in browser like you can do in a local file.

  8. Let users edit Excel at the same time with their own filter update and one's change won't affect others

    when multiple users making changes in Excel onine, a user's operation will affect others which means that users can hardly really edit file at the same time, is there any way to solve this issure?
    Requirement: Let users edit Excel at the same time with their own filter update and one's change won't affect others.

  10. Allow for multi user editing without file locks as with Google Spreadsheet

    Generate the baility to multi user edit concurrently on the same file for both Excel online and application. Currently there is no true multi user editing as anytime a file is accessed even with multiple users enabled it still locks the file and cannot be edited by others.

  11. Highlight cells affected by formula when editing

    Like the desktop version, when a formula is being edited (F2), highlight with colors the other cells used in the formula.

  12. Color or the text in one cell

    With the current version of Excel Online, once you change the font color of a particular text in single cell it automatically changes the font color of every text or data in that cell.
    It would be handy if we could use different colors for the text in one cell

  16. Excel Online Cell Movement After Enter

    When editing an Excel Online documents, hitting [ENTER] will drop you down to the next row, same column. Generally hitting [ENTER] will return you to the next row, but in the column your previous modified cell was in.

  17. Allow users to cut and insert rows in between existing rows

    Currently, when you cut and 'insert' rows, it pastes over existing rows and information. The insert function should insert the rows and move the existing rows down.

  18. Create and edit custom Conditional Formatting rules

    It would be really nice if we could create and edit custom rules for Conditional Formatting in Excel Online, similar to how we can in the Desktop version of Excel.
