As the owner of the file that is protected there are times I need to edit the document however folks have it opened in sharepoint and walk away. I'd like the ability as the owner to kick them out so that edits can be made. When they return they can re-open the updated document.4 votes
I am trying to add image in excel worksheet using JS api for office Addins.
I came across this thread where users were asking to have option to support images insertion in office excel online.
Now that it is possible to insert images in excel online from UI, do we have anything planned in office JS for addin in future releases to support inserting image to worksheet in excel online programatically?
I didn't come across any documentation for achieving this functionality in

When working in Excel online on ONEDRIVE, to search do the following:
Make a Search Sheet to help you quickly move to a particular sheet.
Right click on the tab you've name Search Sheet.
Move to before the sheet you are searching for, clicking OK.
Choose your sheet.
After you've finished searching, move Search Sheet back to before 1st named sheet so you know it's there for next time.5 votes
When a document is locked (being edited by you or someone else) it would be helpful to know the machine name that where the file is opened.
Someone else has workbook locked
Unfortunately, the workbook needs to be closed or checked in before you can edit it. If everyone uses Excel Online, you can work on it at the same time.
(I know there are opened ideas to show the user who has it opened; however, it would also be great to show the machine name that has it opened as currently, it states that I am editing the file and I don't know what machine it is opened from.)63 votes
The inability to select a group of cells, press ctrl, and select another group of cells is detrimental to the online version of Excel. Being user-friendly is the #1 goal!
Additionally, in the desktop version of Excel, the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+;" inputs today's date. Making such functions available in the online version would be useful.4 votes

When we give a print command no preview is available for what we are printing but the same feature is available in google sheets. So it should be developed.15 votes
Can I have an option to see at what time the reply was received. This is because I am receiving revised replies from my audience and after sorting data, I will not be able to see which reply was latest.2 votes
It'd be great to follow Google idea and allow to mention people that have access to the document simply by adding @name .29 votes

Dear customer service officer,
I hope that is an online support that we can communicate with an officer whenever we encounter any issue.

So sometimes people misclick and accidnetally close and lock pivot tables, and after that point they are completely useless for adding new information into. There should really be a way to reopen them as this is currently causing an information entry issue at my work.2 votes
If there are unsupported features when opening an Excel workbook for edit in Office 365, then please inform me what these features are and where to find these in the workbook, instead of 'To edit this in your browser, we will create a copy that doesn't include unsupported features.'
For instance I get specific information when saving an Office 97 version after editing in Office 2013.
This helps me to decide what to do: accept (e.g. is only a presentation issue) or somehow make it impossible to edit via Online (e.g. VBA code will get crippled).3 votes
