  2. Advanced Sorting of Sheets Within a Workbook

    It would be very useful to sort the sheets of an Excel workbook according to chosen data within the sheets. For instance, if a workbook contained sheets with stats for a group of baseball players, it would be useful to arrange the sheets according to a particular statistic that is common to all sheets.

  5. We need to be able to select non-consecutive cells/ rows in Excel Online

    Why would you not build this feature into Excel Online in the first place?

  6. The ability to delete columns/row permanently like google sheets. Having several thousands columns/rows on the x and y axis is not great UX.

    The ability to delete columns/row permanently like google sheets. Having several thousands columns/rows on the x and y axis is not great UX. Google sheets does this perfectly!

  9. 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,…

  10. If a data query fails to refresh in Excel online, the cause should be identified.

    The error message gives a link to a page that lists the possible causes, but why can't the error message just tell you what's causing YOUR query not to refresh? It would really speed up troubleshooting.

  13. Allow option in file to force Excel Online

    I'm going to take a different approach to the idea here https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/274580-excel-online/suggestions/32514754-give-an-option-of-specific-excel-files-to-be-opene

    Allow us to require some files be opened in Excel Online (or the Teams UI) interface only. We have some files that require very specific formats and data, and it is easy to set up in Excel desktop, but it is also easy to trash in Excel Desktop by people copying and pasting from other files, complete with file links being created when formulas are copied, which of course return #REF errors when opened with Excel Online, or are processed with Power Query in Excel or Power BI.…

  17. Add the ability to "stop" editiing in Excel Online

    Until recently, when opening a file in Excel Online, you had to click to Edit (online or in excel). With the files now opening straight into edit mode, we are seeing cells unknowingly changed.

    How about some sort of option to just view only?

  18. If the file is greater than 30 MB you can give us options to download.

    If the file is greater than 30 MB you should give US option to download,
    It's no necessary that user has MS-Office downloaded at that time.
