  1. Provide an Embedding Configurator for Office 365 / SharePoint Online, like the one on OneDrive

    In Excel Online on OneDrive, you can choose File > Embed, and you get a nice dialog that let's you choose the part of the workbook you want to embed, and a bunch of other options and then it will generate an embed code for you.

    But, if the file is stored in Office 365 / OneDrive for Business / SharePoint Online, there is no "Embed" option on the File menu. There should be, please add it!

  3. Wondering how co-authoring works with groups in Excel

    we have a group project that involves entering and editing about 30,000 rows x 8 columns of data in an excel sheet. I have been researching the co-authoring new function. Are there any limitations for mulitple users? We usually have around 3-5 people entering at the same time. Would this cause problems? we currently have gone away from Excel for this project and used Google Sheets. However, it does not seem very robust and there are frequent screen freezes and crashes.

  4. Give me the opcion to clear content.

    It would be easier to have the opcion when right clicking to clear content and to scroll to the left or right while shading for editing.

  6. Fix Charts inconsistencies which require you to delete items to fix them.

    I run into bugs where changes I make on a chart in excel don't make it to excel on-line. For example, I changed font characteristics of 3 data labels for a chart. On excel on-line, 2 where changed and one wasn't. To fix, I had to turn off all the data labels and recreate them.

    Please provide further details on what you are referring to. Are you ask for maps to be supported in Excel Online or some other functionality?

    Thanks,

  12. Make it easy to publish spreadsheets on the web

    Excel should easily integrate as a computation engine into a web backend so that spreadsheets can be published. Numerous spreadsheets exist in business that take advantage of Excel's formulae and computations. It would be beneficial to have these available through web interfaces. For example, someone should be able to post values that are entered into cells and then trigger Excel's solver to output a solution that is read from another cell(s) and returned as the result.

  14. Be able to group tabs the way Onenote does

    By using a tab system the way Onenote works (with tabs showing vertically on the right hand or left and side) would significantly improve the usability of large workbooks, as you could group sheets into sections like, inputs, calculations, outputs, setup etc. It would also make it easier to see a listing of tabs rather than having to scroll along the bottom trying to find what you are looking for.

  15. Fix the small resolution dialogs, like Text to Columns, Edit Links and more

    Many dialogs are small and haven't changed since the days of 800x600 size displays. The Text to Columns dialog in particular only manages to show 5 lines and 63 columns using just ~450 * 80 pixels. I have a huge monitor. This is completely unnecesary. Other old dialogs can be resized, but still have default windows and column sizes appropriate for latter 1990s monitors.

    Please fix this dialog and any others that are either not capable of resizing, or have inadecuate defaults.

  18. Replace Document Version Option

    It would be nice if there was a file upload option for replacing a document on OneDrive. I've run into a perfect instance for this feature. I downloaded a document, made extensive changes to it, but need to replace the older version on OneDrive. Currently, I have to delete the shared document, upload, reassign sharing/permissions and write a message to alert users that I uploaded a new version. But if this feature was present, I could simply upload this new document and the previous would be replaced. I could not apply the extensive functionality using the "Online" version, the "Open…

  19. Additional Date Functions

    Hi,

    Love Excel -- the one thing which is always a pain is working with dates (which is quite common). Although it is possible to do with long formulas these are really common things which I think deserve its own formulas:

    1) Adding to dates with the type of component specified: e.g. it would be greate to add 1 month, or 2 years or 5 minutes to a date time in a very clear readable way: e.g. DATEADD(<component>,<date>,<increment>) ... to add 17 months to the date in A1: =DATEADD("M",A1,17)
    2) Unhide DATEDIF ! It's there, but people don't know it. …

  20. hyperlink formula

    Please fix the hyperlink formula's in excel online. I know there is an option to embed but using a formula allows me to hyperlink to the next available blank cell rather than just a static location like A1. Here is the formula:

    =HYPERLINK("#INDEX('1102'!A:A,MATCH(REPT(CHAR(122),255),'1102'!A:A)+1)","Silver Poly T-Shirts (1102)")

    Either that or please add an option in the hyperlink embedding process to go to the next blank cell in a column or row.
