    Please see if there is a way to open the PDF print tab in Firefox without having to select "Click here to view the PDF of your document." after printing from Excel. Thank you.

  14. User A shared a folder for user B by sending a link through mail, User B wants access the folder by creating shortcut on his desktop.

    Needs a shortcut on User B's desktop to edit daily. because users A & B both have to work on single folder on daily basis.

  17. Desktop Sharing

    It would be great if Shared Documents could be used on the Desktop app with all recipients able to edit while in the document at the same time instead of all having to use the Online Excel version.

  18. Online version to keep grouped cells on paste

    Online version to retain row/column grouping when you paste from excel. Currently you can do so in excel desktop version. However when pasting say grouped rows from this into excel online the grouping vanishes and you lose the ability to expand and collapse at will.

  19. Excel online vs. excel - Can we only allow the user to edit the spreadsheet online, by default, rather than always choosing an option?

    May I suggest only allowing persons to work in the excel online by default rather than giving both options to work online or in regular mode? It would eliminate confusion.. especially among old skool users. Perhaps there could be a feature somewhere under the file menu to export the online spreadsheet to a regular mode or pdf instead. This way, multiple people can work in the sheet with less confusion and locking (like google sheets!). It would also show revision history (as I suggested in a prior suggestion)

  20. Excel online does not preserve column width when pasting from another sheet

    Would like to see column width maintained so the user does not have to go back a manually set them.
