  1. Be like google sheets, they are going to eat your lunch.

    Oh my gosh. It's only a matter of time until my organization and others figure out how much time employees waste using your poor online stack of apps and file storage.

  2. Excel Online is an abomination.

    It's nothing but an impediment to my working on a spreadsheet in Excel. Someone in a meeting at MS said, "hey, look what I'm able to do with Excel," and because it was something different - and MicroSoft has become a barren wasteland for productive ideas - it was implemented. It's an abomination.

  4. Make Excel Free.

    Why must you charge for everything. Give pl for many things but never had to pay a $99 per year subscription for it. why do you **** your customers and laugh to the bank. Why do you think Android and Google are doing so well. you are taking advantage of the people you brought this future to. You started this digital age and been a major player in how we got to where we are today....why cant you offer freely to the world and the people that made you the company you are. Very un happy old customer....for the simple…

  6. webdings added to online office

    The webdings font is full of useful icons and it's kinda weird that it's not supported through the web interface :)

    In general more of the default fonts should be added so that what people see through the web interface is the same as through the desktop application.

  9. Need to offer a simple, faster, and easier version of excel online. The annoying features are the slowness and its need to reload frequently

  10. change log the changes done by which user on eacg cell to trackdown the chages

    Excel online should log the changes done by user in log sheet or logs.
    if mutliple users are accesing the excel and doing changes and some one wants to trak down the chages will be easy for person to track down.

  11. Function in chosen language, not according to location

    I use Excel and other Office web apps in English, however my locale is set up as Czech Republic which I would like to keep because changing account to a different locale that uses English means changing timezone etc.

    My request is that functions language would either be based on selected language or there will be an option to select language specifically for functions.

  12. Instead of trying to "emulate"/"rebuild"/"migrate" features from Desktop, focus on framework for having the same build of excel available

    Full title was supposed to read: "Instead of trying to "emulate"/"rebuild"/"migrate" individual features from Desktop in/to Excel Online, focus on framework for having the same build of excel available both via Desktop application and via Web Interface"

    Keywords for this would be, for example, the following two (non-exhaustive list):

    -Virtualization
    -HTML5

  15. Be like Google Sheets. Literally.

    That's it. Google's design, functionality, and reliability make it far superior.

  16. Allow me to change regional settings: date formatting (mm/dd/yy, dd/mm/yy), thousands/decimal separators (period vs comma), formula language

    Excel Online decides how to show dates and numbers and formulas based on where I live. I want to be able to choose how to display these Excel items. For dates, I might want mm/dd/yyyy, or I might want dd/mm/yyyy. My Excel formulas should be in the language of the application, and not based on where I live.

  17. Don't expire sessions

    There is no technical reason to expire sessions whereas currently Excel Online (and word) get their sessions expired after a few hours. Please could the session model be fixed so that sessions expire only when deemed necessary for security reasons (at which point a re-login would be required) i.e. just like google docs.

    Automatically refreshing the page would be a short-term workaround.

    This problem prevents online applications having parity with desktop applications, even where the required feature subset is fully supported.

  18. Rip it up and start again. Usability is just hopeless. Sorry.

    This app is completely unusable. The user experience is one of complete frustration. The lack of functionality really doesn't help. For it to work it needs a complete rethink and overhaul.
