Show who is editing the Excel spreadsheet on Sharepoint so that I can track that person down so that I can edit the doc.
Currently, when I try to edit an Excel spreadsheet online (shared with other users), I can't edit it because somebody else is using it. However, I have no idea who that person in the office is. It would be great if Sharepoint stated who the user is so that I go and talk to them to resolve the issue.
In the interim, I guess I'll just use Google docs wherever possible.
This is already another ticket, vote here:

I prefer for it to allow me to edit. Just knowing the person's name is a time waster. Just allow true collaboration as Google docs does and there shouldn't be any problems. Unfortunately, our company is forcing us to use Office 365.

File > Options
Quick Access Toolbar: On the Choose Commands From, select "Commands not in ribbon"
Scroll down to "Share Workbook (Legacy) and add it to your toolbar
Click it and select "Use the old shared..." and OK
Tell it to pound sand when it suggests going to collaboration mode. DONE.
