  1. Enable multiple users to sort/filter the same data table in different ways simultaneously

    Our company would greatly benefit from the ability for multiple people to log in to the same Excel Online document and sort/filter the same table in different ways on each of their devices without affecting the sort/filter of the other users, and yet be able to update the underlying information in each view of the table in a way that appears immediately in each table.

  3. Wish we could sort without having to undo merged cells. It should allow us to sort but the merged cell has to sort a a complete cell

    have the ability to sort merged cells along with those that may not be merged with it but the information goes with that in the merged cells

  4. Advanced filter options

    Introducing advanced filters like in Outlook desktop version will be great.
    We have filters for subject, from, to, body, date, attachment filters in outlook.

    It is a pain to search using keywords.

  5. Multiple Filters

    Excel Online is currently only able to filter one column in a table. It would be useful to be able to filter multiple columns when you have a big table and need to sort through data quickly. Please help.

  7. Add a workbook filter, similar to worksheet filter

    Allow filtering on multiple sheets (or entire workbook), in the same way as within 1 sheet.

    Currently one can perform a workbook find and replace only.
    However, this requires jumping to each and every single cell that should be updated, contrary to filtering within a worksheet, where one can indeed update multiple cells simultaneously just by pasting the new value into those multiple cells.

  10. Two features that are on excel but not excel online

    1. Custom sort isn't an option online -- To sort by one column and then a second column and then a third column; to sort by a custom list that you create -- none of these are options online but are very necessary!
    2. Currently on excel you can have multiple colors or formatting within one cell. It's a way to color code items. On excel online its either all red or all black, all bold or all plain.

    Thank you!!

  11. Filter drop down boxes

    When using date fields on excel worksheet and having a filter drop down boxes it would be a lot easier if the drop-down boxes were just the dates below e.g 31/01/19 1/02/19 etc like the old versions 2003 excel. As like you know for 365 you have to deselect all then click the year then the month then the date and when running a business everything needs to fast and efficient and it's a shame they have changed this idea to make it slower.

  17. New functions

    Add functions to:
    > sort and de-dupe arrays;
    > concatenate strings from variable length ranges and arrays;
    > implement regex;
    > FILTERIF function enabling values (including arrays) to be included / excluded (remove zeroes / error values / matching a regex / etc.)

  18. allow query to return more than 2 records on a search

    when you need to query 2 or more records back you only have a choice to do a max of 2. it does not allow to use commas.
    example i want to query to return records on
    units: 234, 768, 823 NOTE it will only allow you to get back 234 and 768 nowhere to select a third value

  20. Formatting first and last columns

    Add numbers to allow first or last columns to be formatted not just the first or last. E.g. if I have forename and surname I'd like the first two columns formatted automatically. I have Qty, Unit Price and Total price on the right and I'd like the last 3 columns automatically formatted.
