  2. 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)?

  3. 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.

  4. Setting to Block Excel Online

    I have some complex excel files with Macros and references to other spreadsheets.

    They are stored in a Sharepoint portal which exposes them to Excel online.

    As soon as somebody opens them in online it breaks the external spreadsheet links and breaks some macros functions.

    And since the macro doesn't work in Online would be great to have a slider, Block from Excel online. It would start to load online then see this flag make no changes and force local excel to open and download.

  13. Trash the program. It is worthless. I'm going to try to get my money back because this was a total waste.

    Trash this ****. I just bought it. Excel won't even open. Says the file may be corrupted. Well, it wasn't me that corrupted it because I never got it to open. Not sure if the version of Word works or not. I don't care. I'm taking my new laptop back to the store where I bought it. If they won't give me my money back for this piece of **** they sold me, they can have their laptop back too. I can buy a laptop anywhere but I well NEVER buy this **** again. And why do you ask for…

  15. Give me a program that works

    Give us a program that works. For the money you charge, it should work as soon as it's installed. Excel does NOT work. It says is must be corrupted. Well, I didn't corrupt it. I can't use it. What do I have to do to get an answer from you? I'm taking my new laptop back to the store and get my money back for the laptop and your inflated software. If I'm going to spend $150.00, I want to see something for my money. To date, I haven't seen anything worth keeping.

  16. Stop auto launching in Online

    If online won't open a file of a large size, then don't even try to load online. Just automatically load in excel. It isn't rocket science to say, If file size is < Xmb then open excel online, else, open excel.

  18. Poor Development

    The ability of openly share and collaborate on documents provides the ability to move a project forward faster and allow improvement while still in the production mode with amazing insight from all areas concerned. However, with this you have put excel back to 1990, all of the functionality from Windows 10 is absent from this program, making collaboration more difficult, files don't save right information is lost when multiple users are in at the same time, you don't have the same functionality as the powerful 10, this reaches across the board, from the simplest task of printing to complex mathematical…

  20. Select multiple sheets at once

    I have a spreadsheet that I've been updating for four years with one sheet per week. I now have over 200 sheets in my spreadsheet and I'd like to cleanup by deleting all but the last few. I could do this in Excel desktop by clicking the first sheet, then shift-clicking the last. Then the context menu's delete sheet function would delete them all. You could also use this to hide many sheets, or change the tab color if you wanted. I can't do this with Excel online. Shift-clicking a sheet just selects that one sheet.
