  1. More fill colors

    The color choices are limited, we like the color wheel that is in our desktop version. We assign colors for various catergories and there aren't enough contrasting colors to choose from. Please add the colors pallette back!!

    • Make it possible to change the colours of bars in charts using right-click

      In the online version of Excel it isn't possible to change the colour of bars in charts or graphs on the chart menu. You can't right-click to change them either. I use charts a lot in my work and need to be able to change the colours as easily as I can in the desktop version of Excel

          • TRENDLINES ASAP

            Without trendlines this program is essentially rendered useless in academic applications.

              • Zooming In & Out

                Would be nice to have the keystroke shortcuts available for Excel Spreadsheets...sometimes there is so much data that one needs to zoom in and out in order to work efficiently.

                • System process control chart functionality. Used a lot in science, engineering, statistics and manufacturing

                  System process control chart functionality. Used a lot in science, engineering, statistics and manufacturing. Very difficult to produce in Excel, and the addons available are difficult to implement at a business level. Something like Winchart, which is a very simple piece of software, would be great.

                    • Let us make charts by defining the X axis and the Y axis

                      Let us just be able to say we want this range of data for the X axis and that one for the Y. The wizard is constantly doing stupid things, forcing you to guess the format which will produce the right graph and make special tables so the wizard will be able to produce the graph you want.

                      It's basic to charting. This is the X. Why have to guess if the wizard is going to decide you wanted years on the Y axis and your labels on the X and population nowhere to be seen?

                                        PivotCharts are supported in Excel Online if they were previously created in the desktop app. We don’t currently support creating a new PivotChart in Excel Online. However, we’ll consider improving this in a future release.

                                        Thanks,

                                        I have created a scatterplot graph on from scratch on the online version of excel, and it seems that I can't add a trendline. Maybe we are able to edit existing ones, I'll have to look into that, but adding one here seems impossible for now.

                                        • Please add the abilty to copy charts from Excel online in order to paste into other apps

                                          Hi, I have set up charts for data visualisation within Excel that I would like others to be able to use in their reports and presentations. Unfortunately Excel Online does not appear to allow you to copy a chart.

                                          Is there a workaround (that doesn't mean the user opening in Excel desktop and thus locking the file) or could this be added please?

                                          Thank you.
