        We are excited to announce that it is now possible to Duplicate worksheets in Excel Online.

        There are still cases where Excel Online will be unable to duplicate a worksheet. Most notably, in case either one of the following is present in the worksheet:

        • Images
        • Shapes
        • Charts

        Excel Online team is working to resolve these limitations.
        Please continue to leave feedback on the feature, to help us improve.

      • Pivot

        It would be great if PivotTable is also included online especially if you have things to modify in the table.

            • Excel survey with automatic timestamp on each record

              When you get many responses it often is very important to understand WHEN a certain respons was submitted. For exampel if the same respondent has submitted multiple times and you want to sort out the last one of them....
              Add feature that automaically add a timestamp on each record.

                      • Excel survey needs to capture email address/user name for respondant

                        There doesn't appear to be a way to automatically capture the user name/email address of the respondent to an Excel O365 survey. This means I am having to create an extra question filled with people's names to capture this information which reduces the value of the survey.

                                        We are excited to announce that it is now possible to Duplicate worksheets in Excel Online.

                                        There are still cases where Excel Online will be unable to duplicate a worksheet. Most notably, in case either one of the following is present in the worksheet:

                                        • Images
                                        • Shapes
                                        • Charts

                                        Excel Online team is working to resolve these limitations.
                                        Please continue to leave feedback on the feature, to help us improve.

                                        Functionality is very limited in browser. Can't search entire workbook or find all

                                        • Surveys should allow completion by several users at the same time

                                          Hello!

                                          I have a survey in Sharepoint that I send to all the new subscribers to my site, and I've received several complains for people who are getting an error when filling out the survey because "the file is being modified by another user".

                                          This doesn't make any sense. A survey should allow completion by any number of users concurrently.

                                          I had to move my surveys to Google Docs in the meantime because of this issue. Hope it gets fixed soon!
