  1. Allow for equations using the equation editor to reference values of cells

    The idea is that as users change the values of cells, the values within an equation object will change accordingly.

    • Cross product and dot product

      You have many esoteric functions rarely used but you don't have dot and cross product. The dot can be faked with mmult but it should be easier and most engineers use these two functions.

      • Have a clear filter button for all filters on the sheet as you can have with excel

        means if previous person has used filters and left them, easy to un-filter the table rather than try and see what was filtered and then un-filter it.

        • please give a sheetwise sharing option, there is only a work sharing option in Excel online.

          i have an idea that please give sheetwise sharing option in online excel, there is a whole workbook sharing option, but don't have a sheetwise sharing option in the same.

          Google Docs have the ability to do so. they have given the protect sheet option to restrict other used of the doc to edit. they can only see the document..

          • Being able to favourite a sheet within Sharepoint/Onedrive without having to use web browser favourites/bookmarks

            I think the title speaks for itself, just a nice simple feature that would be handy.

              • Enrich the bindings to return more information from the Javascript API

                Currently Table, matrix and text bindings essentially only return the value. Although I appreciate that table and matrix also have rowCount and columnCount (and hasHeaders for table). These bindings should be enriched to return all the information like formula, format, borders etc. etc.

                • Align across as an easy pick

                  Pasting is rendered impossible with merged cells. Make align across easier to pick so people will use that in lieu of merging. Nothing new to program just make this easier to pick

                  • Ability to add conditions to 'yes/no' questions

                    I want the option to add, text box or choice list, to yes/no answers. For example; Did they save any money this month? If yes, How much. If no, why not. If I could put this all into one question I can more easily require the user to impute a response.

                    • ability to fill in divided cells with a different color

                      While this is a non-traditional use of Excel, my wife likes using it for quilting. What would help her is when she wants to make triangles that she could fill the cell with two different solid colors based on the triangle split.

                                  • Add / Edit charts online

                                    One of those things that are badly missing online is the ability to add and edit charts in Word.
                                    In my opinion, add/edit charts is the simplest way to create compelling documents that look good and are easy to share/edit with anyone without going through Excel which some users a really not very much used to, especially at the C-level.

                                      • Fix Calculated field returns incorrect grand total in Excel

                                        As explained, the Grand Totals don't use the sub-totals of the calculated field. This is very non-intuitive/wrong.
                                        Fix.

                                          I would like to know when my OneDrive file that I have shared with someone is updated by that other person.
