        • Examine copy and paste function within the browser version of Office 365 Excel

          Copy and paste function is so hit or miss in Office 365 Excel.

          For example, formatting of tables is completely lost even when I'm copying and pasting from one tab of Office 365 Excel to another.

          • Give an option of specific excel files to be opened in the desktop version instead of excel online

            Currently Excel files that have links to other Excel files in SharePoint will not open in Excel Online, if the default in SharePoint is set to open excel is Excel online then an error is given. There needs to be an option to change the default application specific excel files are opened rather than global setting.

                          • Correct bug that sets formatting to US when editing online and prevents correct setting of data format - Change to UK but sets to Armenian

                            The date formatting when editing in Excel online changes the format of a date field to US even though it was set to UK when created offline and uploaded. When you try to change the formatting back to UK, it seems to accept your instruction but the formatting displayed is not the one you chose. If you check the format again, it has been changed to Armenian.
                            You have been aware of this bug since July last year and it still hasn't been addressed. This is a huge inconvenience to people in the UK as some dates may have been…

                            • When scrolling down one line in Web Browser, Excel randomly scrolls 800-1000 rows down

                              Example: When I'm on row 5, and need to scroll to row 6 or 7, the sheet will suddenly be on row 800 to 1000. I've tried using the arrows on the keyboard, clicking and dragging the side scroll (on the browser), and the scroll on my mouse. The most recent change I've made is added the top row Freeze Pane.

                                • Can't open workbook on Web message due to external links: Have a visual in excel web for unsupported features

                                  I would like to see excel web have either red text or a visual message indicating that a feature is blocked.

                                  Examples:
                                  1. If a chart visual isn't supported than have a little grey square that says "Excel web don't support X kind of chart. Click here to view it in excel desktop"
                                  2. if a certain cell query isn't supported than maybe have it highlighted with Red text.

                                    • File Size Limit

                                      If the buggy online versions of office apps can't open a file due to a file size limit, don't present an error but automatically open the file in the desktop version instead.

                                      Alternatively abandon the webapps completely. They are far from being production ready.

                                      • Provide options to open Excel when it cannot be opened on Browser

                                        If an excel file cannot be opened for various reason on the browser, an option should be given to the user to open it on the desktop/client.

                                        E.g. I am getting an error "The requested range does not exist in the sheet"

                                        • "Your session has exceeded its limits and has been closed" is unclear language, articulate what "the limit" is and how it's exceded

                                          "Your session has exceeded its limits and has been closed"

                                          Error Id: d5beba95-ab91-4d03-b643-f81fb062e0c8, 2018-06-13 15:57:51Z

                                          This error message don't clearly articulate what the user did wrong or how to avoid doing it again. A more detailed message, or one that uses clear language to define what "exceeded its limits" even means, would provide users with a way to avoid getting this error, over and over, as I have.
