  1. Trendline with Excel Online

    Excel online needs the capability of adding a trendline to a graph. How is this not possible when it should be a basic function of any excel program? With my present job there's really no point in using excel online when it can't add a trendline. If google sheets can add trendlines then excel online should be able to also.

    • More color choices, especially for highlighting.

      I have a running file that I no longer have access to some of the colors I have used for 3 yrs now. More colors, and more SHADES of colors, please.

              • Allow Header and Footers in Excel Online

                At the moment there is no Header and Footer options in Excel Online. Existing Excel documents uploaded lose their headers and footers.

                • Allow object embedding in excel online

                  My team works with excel with Visio Drawing embedded in the file. However, we need to always edit it in desktop version because the embedded object is not supported in Excel Online.
                  Please allow embedding object in the online version of excel, please.

                  • Please restore ability to insert simple notes in cells

                    I want to be able to insert notes in a cell brought back in Excel online. Comments do not work for everyone. Sometimes I just want a note for myself, not start a conversation about a cell. The ability to navigate comments is also horrible - show it in the cell, not on the side. If I right click on a cell to edit, I don't want to see all comments for all cells, just the one I right clicked. How simple is that?

                        • Consistent View Size when Opening Excel in Teams

                          When I open excel files in teams they are never the same size. Sometimes they open so large that they run off the screen and sometimes they are just in the left top corner, and very small. How can I change this so they open in a consistent size?

                          • right click paste options

                            Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

                            In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

                            • My excel online file size is more than 5 mb. Alteast allow me to reduce the file size by deleting some unwanted rows and formats. Pls help

                              My excel online file size is more than 5 mb. Alteast allow me to reduce the file size by deleting some unwanted rows and formats. Pls help and suggest how to proceed. There is some garbage in my file and I can definitely reduce. Also you should have given a warning , alert with file size so that I could have ensured the file size to be smal.
