    Yes PLEASE ADD! I have a large timeline I view and when I zoom out the menus become ridiculously small. I just want the WORKSHEET to zoom- not the entire browser window!

    Please Please Please add this to Excel online. With the movement going to cloud based applications I tend to use Excel online more than I do actual Excel. Not having this as an option adds extra steps to my workflow (save copy locally, edit return to SharePoint) multiple times a day and is creating a bottleneck.

    Thank you,

    I have an excel sheet that is shared online that immensely limited because excel can’t zoom out online (iPad)

    Good morning, I recently opened a ticket with Microsoft in relation to being able to zoom the contents of an Excel Online document because at the moment, according to what I have been told is not available.
    For me it would be of great help to have such functionality since to visualize documents with great information it is not feasible not to have it.

    Thank you.

    Adrian I think you have missed the point, Ctrl + or Ctrl – increases/decreases the size of the screen, not the spread sheet.

    This is ridiculous that it takes people to "vote" to allow a simple "zoom in/out" on a workbook. If this is not going to happen can an admin please notify us so we can explore moving to other platforms?

    exactly how many votes does it take to get something "more likely" to be done? Because then maybe we can start a petition/campaign to get these votes.

    It's been years since this recommendation was made. THIS IS NOT A REVOLUTIONARY UPDATE. Please fix or we will switch to Google Sheets.

    Must have zoom capability (status bar) for Excel Web Access. This would be a gift!
    EWA is nice, but then users have to still open the document up in excel because they can't zoom in/out to see specific details or the bigger picture for something similar to long range training calendars in excel.

    This is one of the primary reasons I often have to download & open a workbook in Excel online. Please fix this.

    It's been almost four years since this recommendation has been made, this isn't a revolutionary update. please fix or we will switch to google sheets

    Cloud first? Then go ahead, don't loose customers to Google Sheets and implement features like this. Thank you!

    pretty sad not one person from Microsoft responded to this post. Seems like a no brainer to me. Someone said Microsoft does not use their own products. I would agree; they should eat their own dog food.
