              • Relative paths within OneDrive (links work regardless of PC or Excel Online)

                Relative paths within OneDrive - my documents folder is stored in OneDrive on my PC, so all items are synced. If I have a spreadsheet with external links, then it should work in Excel Online just like in Excel 365 on Windows.

                Ideally, DSN connections (e.g. MySQL db files), refresh of Power Query when opening in Excel Online etc would also work regardless of platform, but I realise that is tougher

                • excel data types

                  Excel Data types (Stocks & Geography) should be available in the Online Version of Excel. The data comes from the web and this would be a very logical evolution of Excel Online (and put it on par with Google Docs).

                        Don’t strip leading zeroes from csv files (or at least make it possible to switch this off as an option)

                                • Allow VLOOKUP across Online workbooks

                                  In Excel client, it is possible to define a VLOOKUP across two workbooks. Not just sheets within a Workbook, but across two different files. Excel will retrieve and keep the filename and path.

                                  At one time this allowed me to create a complex (ever changing) network of various different but related data listings, without having to copy list 1 to workbook 2 for VLOOKUP validation. The files were stored on a fileserver that everybody had access to using the same Drive letter. Yes, this is old school.

                                  Now in the Online world, I want people to work on different workbooks,…

                                  • Allow pasting larger amounts of data into Excel Online

                                    This 100k limit is very inconvenient and small. We are trying to migrate our users from Google Sheets to Excel Online and SharePoint. They regularly paste 4000+ lines of data at a time from Excel desktop to Google Sheets, and it works no problem.
                                    With Excel online they are going to have to break it down into selections of 500 or so. Very time consuming for what we are trying to do. How can we get this limit raised?

                                    • Add Actions for Excel in the IFTTT service

                                      IFTTT is a way to connect services together based on Triggers and Actions. Being able to use Actions to import data from other services via Triggers would allow users to chart and track many different things.
                                      Skype, OneDrive, and OneNote already have this capability.

                                      Example Actions would include:
                                      Add row to Worksheet
                                      Update cell in Worksheet
                                      Add tab to Workbook
                                      Run a macro

                                        • Give us a button where we can open the form in Excel

                                          Funny how there's a disclaimer at the top saying "There are some features in your workbook that we can't show in the browser.". with a "Learn more" button right next to it.
                                          Open the "Learn More" and it says that there's stuff we can't do.. but we can if we open in Excel. Unfortunately there's no obvious button where we can actually open the document in Excel. *sigh*
