  2. Editing a copy online Error

    When an error occurs that prevents you from editing a file online. Can the type of unsupported formatting or shapes, or any other unsupported items be highlighted to make easier to suggest if the information can just be removed?

  5. After making a selection from a drop down list that we created; Excel starts shaking up & down

    My team at work, uses Excel in SharePoint for almost everything that we need to track. We've all (16+ people) have been having an issue. While editing Excel in the Browser, it randomly shakes up and down, the best way to describe it is the sheet moves up and down a few rows, really fast). One of my peers noticed the sheet starts 'shaking' after selecting a word in a drop down list of the sheet. To fix the issue, we have to completely close out of the Excel Tracker and then re-open it... Which causes a lot of extra…

  6. Increase capacity of dropdowns

    As a manager with the Ga Dept of Ed, I routinely poll all of the school systems. I would love to use Excel Online Survey tool- but there is a limit as to how many selections I can have in the dropdown. I cannot get all 190 districts on the dropdown - which would require me to have 3 dropwdowns- which prevents me from requiring a seletion.

  8. Make comments in excel be also saved when downloaded to pc

    Whenever I download a copy of my online excel file and open it, it says "Excel found unreadable content in <filename>. Do you want to recover.." It doesn't include the comments which is very important to me as they are like my diary, reminding what that was all about.

  10. Business Intelligence removed from Office 365 Business Premium :(

    Have Office 365 Midsize Business and Microsoft is forcing us to go to a new plan. Office 365 Business Premium which is the same price has Business Intelligence missing which we use. It would cost $90 a year more per person to go to E3 which has the BI we need or I have to cancel the plan we have now (because user names are attached to the online email address) and start another account. Please add option to purchase BI for some reasonable amount!

  12. When using Excel online Survey it would be ideal to be able to change the font of the questions.

    I will be using the Survey in Excel online with K-5 students so to have the survey look appealing for this age group would be a big advantage.

  13. View sheets in full screen mode much like viewing a Youtube video.

    I have a sheet that 6 people can update and I would like the sheet displayed full screen on one of my computer screens permanently as an image with nothing else

  14. formatting option are poor... Atleast compare the existing outlook and try n replicate the same

    Editing tables and colour coding is still pathetic and even if you try copy from excel it comes as plain text.

  19. Please add data validation options for worksheets that are populated by surveys.

    If making updates to a worksheet that's populated by a survey, the cells aren't currently bound by the same constraints.

    Example: Say you have a question with yes/no options in a survey. That column in the worksheet doesn't automatically populate with "yes/no" options for data validation. This limits worksheet usefulness, editing and update ability, and can potentially wreck results, break charts and formulas, etc.

    Adding data validation both to Excel Online worksheet edit capacity and as an automatic part of Survey + Worksheet population would be very helpful.
