        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.

        I don't honestly believe that Microsoft employees use their own products. Otherwise key features like this would not go un-resolved for so long. This is another example of a MS Online product that gets 95% of the way there and then fails to be usable because of some crucial, glaringly obvious, key feature that is missing. This is the 3rd or 4th time I've started using one of their products, then I get to the middle of a project and realize that I can't continue because some really essential feature is missing. Like... I tried to use planner, but it didn't have a calendar. I tried to use teams... but it didn't send notifications. I tried to use flow and one drive, but it doesn't alert you when a new folder is dropped added a team member... Maybe these things are fixed now? But why even launch a product if its not close to done?

        I started working on an excel sheet in microsoft office online for the first time yesterday and needed this functionality immediately because the text was too small. I cant believe this has not been taken care of, in two years???? What kind of development team do you really have over there?

        Quite clear that Satya Nadella couldn’t give a **** about his customers… you know… the ones that fund his income.

        Mr Nadella, why has it taken over 2 years for your company to respond to your users? Is Microsoft lacking the technical skill to make this update?

        Would love to hear from you

        Shared sheets in Google has this option. Why doesn't MS? 2.5 yrs later and still nothing. What's the point of even voting?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        please MS, it is terrible to use the Browser Zoom. Need a microscope to see menue etc.

        Can Microsoft care any less about this product ?
