  1. Can't open a password protected spreadsheet in Outlook. Gmail has had this ability for several years. These are all MSFT products. WRF?

  4. Add "Log Off" or "Log Out" on any screen

    Regardless of the view or screen, "Log Off" or "Log Out" should be an option.

  6. Expand OneDrive to work the same way for business that dropbox does and put everyone else out of business.

    Why does OneDrive not work in the same way as Box, DropBox, GoogleDrive. Google sheets / google power point is awful. Our presentations look like garbage, but collaboration is easy. Please roll out a dropbox type functionality where we can store (and more importantly share) our files and I will have my entire company switch to it.

  7. Provide quick link to download a copy of your workbook.

    When Excel Online says it cannot automatically save online, it says to "Download a copy of your workbook". This dialog bar should have a button or quick link to do this.

    it would be helpful to be able to see in your "sent" after using the share feature, to be able to continue a conversation on email, or re-send things as needed

  13. No sub sheet protection available for users

    Excel Online does not allow to protect individual sub sheets in one file. We get this option in Google sheets. This needs to be included.

  17. We are a heavy user of the Room Finder capability in Outlook. Make the webpart wider.

    Room Finder - Allow us to start typing in the room list we want, instead of only offering the scroll bar.

  19. User Interface ==>KISS--Keep It Simple Stupid

    Instead the banner, header, labeling **** at the top of a spreadsheet, simply use right click to open up a menu to select what we want to do. At this time the top 50+% of my window is taken up with useless stuff that should be hidden unless I need it. I do not need a huge banner (taking over 10% of my screen) telling me I am using "Excel Online" as an example.

    Enclosed is an image showing the amount of useful area and the rest is useless and should be hidden and use a right click if necessary…
