  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…

  5. CHECK-MARK A CELL

    I'd like a way to check-mark a cell instead of highlighting it...to show I've completed the task in that cell. For instance, if I'm going thru a listing and checking it against something, I'd highlight in yellow that I've checked it, but I'd rather have a small check-mark in the cell. So I don't have to un-fill the color etc. A quick way to tag a cell...check-mark that toggles off and on.

  8. 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

  9. It doesn't have all functionality as desktop excel. Make Online excel = Desktop excel

    Data formatting could be made as easy as in Desktop excel. As we are very much used to mouse it will be better to have those functionality to copy paste & other functions. In simple words make Online version = Desktop version.

  13. Need two colors of font in the same cell in Excel Online

  15. Offer options to "set color theme" across all accounts instead of making this the default.

    It seems as if themes are set automatically without the chance to change. I despise the colors that have been set and chosen. I need variety to match the different projects I work on.

    Instead of automatically syncing themes, make that an option to click and set.

  19. 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!

  20. Data validation incorrectly reverts to US date format when using Excel online.

    Data validation of dates formatted as dd/mm/yy does not work correctly.
    In Excel the date column is formatted dd/mm/yy and I am using data validation to reject any incorrect entries. When using Excel online the format is changed to mm/dd/yy and entries are rejected. I attempted to change the number format back to dd/mm/yy in excel online, but that just corrupts the existing entries.
