  4. Default File List View

    If you insist on eliminating Document Version numbers it would be great if you included the Version of the file next to the file name. Currently you have to jump through hoops to see what version of the document this is. Some people have changed document formats and we can't see what the new version is. You may not think this is important but you also think hiding extensions by default is a good thing. It actually helps to spread viruses. I've been telling you this for 18 years. The Anna Kournikova virus and some others should have proven this…

  8. Formulae and number formatting appear in Spanish. How to fix?

    Excel Documents opened in Excel Online switch to Spanish formulae and number formatting.
    Can't use a decimal point, have to switch to comma.
    Formulas switch to Spanish.
    It's really annoying.

  9. Please explain to users the difference between Outlook.com Online applications and Office 365 Subscription service. I have Office 365.

    I subscribed to Office 365 with all of the applications included. Is there any point in having Outlook.com applications online too? The existence of Mail in Outlook.com, and Office Outlook has completely baffled me. Is this just unnecessary duplication of service? Did I pay for Office 365 unnecessarily?

  13. Need an Obvious 'Open in Excel' Option

    When an Excel file opens in Excel Services, there is no obvious thing to click on to open in Excel (real excel). We need an obvious way to open in Excel (not go to the bottom and click on a tiny square or click on the dot, dot, dot thing)

  14. Notification

    If a file is too big to share, you should let the sender know before the recipient can't open it.

  16. Stop Excel from Rearranging Conditional Formatting Rules for shared Excel files on Sharepoint

    I built a shared Excel file with 100 conditional formatting rules and put it on Sharepoint, but for no apparent reason once every few days some of the rules get rearranged back to a previous arrangement in a way that causes them not to work properly anymore. Please fix this problem.

  17. Bring back the old workspace feature

    We used to be able to open a group of spreadsheets at one time using a workspace. That is a sorely missed feature

  18. Option to change theme/color

    It would be better if we can change the overall theme of Office Online, just like what the desktop versions can do. I do work on a dim environment so its great to have some Dark Mode here.

  19. Fully formatted accounting spreadsheets. All calculations are done automatically. AmbitionsInc.com

    Recently completed fully formatted accounting spreadsheets. Simply name accounts and post amounts. Finally, all calculations are done automatically. Possibly, a representative and I will collaborate in an effort to attempt to create templates or an application from the existing model. AmbitionsInc.com

  20. Just be Google, or buy this feature from them - Microsoft is trash.

    Difficult to share (WTF is Sharepoint vs OneDrive?) Can't tag people in comments, difficult to share, cant have two people working on it at the same time without errors, doesnt backup save until internet connects again, total trash, give up Microsoft - the new kid on the block made you obsolete and overpriced in half the time it took you to make this ****. Even leaving this feed back is a pain and I had to go to an external site and cant see everything needed until I fill in an earlier spot. This is like something my dad invented,…
