  3. Trendline with Excel Online

    Excel online needs the capability of adding a trendline to a graph. How is this not possible when it should be a basic function of any excel program? With my present job there's really no point in using excel online when it can't add a trendline. If google sheets can add trendlines then excel online should be able to also.

  5. [Embed] if you uncheck "Include a download link", then disable view full size workbook

    On the embed code screen, if you uncheck "Include a download link", then disable view full size workbook

    When you uncheck "Include a download link" your are telegraphing that you "don't want someone to download you Excel file".
    But you can still "view the full-size workbook" because icon is still active.

    Improvement: Disable "view the full-size workbook" when you uncheck "Include a download link"

    This would be a nice security feature Then this acts as a true viewer, like the good old ActiveX days ;)

    Also prevent someone from hacking the script to get the download!

  7. Link directly to Excel tab

    Each tab in excel document should have unique url, so that sharing a link pointing to a specific tab is possible.

  8. right click paste options

    Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

    In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

  9. Move row/column inbetween instead of replacing

    This is supported in the desktop version. When a column/row is selected and it's dragged while holding shift it's possible to insert row/column inbetween instead of replacing.

  10. After a session expires, automatically reload the page, rather than prompting to refresh

    Instead of telling me my session has expired on a read only document, and asking to hit refresh. How about just automatically refreshing the page.

  12. Allow Header and Footers in Excel Online

    At the moment there is no Header and Footer options in Excel Online. Existing Excel documents uploaded lose their headers and footers.

  15. Make Excel online have full office features, and offline support for chromebooks

    I have a suggestion to make Excel online better. Adding offline features on Excel so customers will use this when not connected to the Internet especially for users that run Chromebooks. Excel Online should need full office features from desktop apps.

  17. Add the ability to close a worksheet via the "File" menu.

    In the fat client version of Excel, there's an option to close a file. Users accustomed to that would be less confused if that option was added to Excel Online.
