  1. Excel Desktop vs Excel Online - online version should have all/most of the same features

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Paste/Formatting - When pasting into the online version, the format doesn't stay.

    ~ Sorting - There are very limited sorting options in the online version.

    ~ Copying data. I have about 300 lines of data that's about 10 columns wide and am unable to copy it so that I can paste it into another document and sort it the way I need (since online version has limited options for sorting, as mentioned…

  6. Add text rotation option

    Excel Online lacks one important feature: text rotation option is not implemented and even opening existing xlsx file with the text formatted as rotated is not showing it correctly

  10. Please make it easy to have alternating row colors.

    Why is it so challenging to create alternating colors for rows? It's as if I need a degree in Excel to understand where to do this and how to write the formula. Google Sheets makes it easy. Please, make it easy for us newbies too!

  11. Fix the cell formatting to match regular Excel

    The formatting functions are less robust than regular Excel. I always have to download to set up as needed. Please fix.

  16. Allow users to copy tables WITH formatting intact when pasted onto Outlook e-mail.

    Google Sheets does not have an issue with the formatted copies of the tables from online to an Outlook e-mail. So, why does Excel online have this issue? All the colors and alignment are stripped away and when you paste the tables into the blank e-mail, whatever option you choose to paste it as (except a picture), it's all just raw data.

  17. Please enable Formatting of Borders!

    Cell formatting has NO provisions for changing border line style and colors. This is very frustrating and is making Excel online very limited and virtually useless for my employee schedule sheets.

  19. Add a shortcut to the "merge cells" function
