  1. Protect Range/Sheet, Collaboration Range/Sheet, Tracking history of workbook

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Besides that, in comparison, Microsoft Excel Online doesn't have advanced features in the Google Sheets. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Protecting features only works in desktop version (not work online)

    ~ Microsoft Excel Only cannot protect sheets, but Google Sheets can protect sheets or ranges. Therefore, many users can collaborate together with high security in range/ranges, same sheet/sheets in a common workbook.

    ~ and so many advanced other feature in Google Sheets doesn't appear in Microsoft Excel

  2. Improve the compatibility in between Excel Desktop version and Excel Teams version. Hiding Columns and adding pdfs is impossible

    It is impossible to make columns invisible or add pdf files to the Excel Microsoft Teams file. It would be great if the online Version of Excel would be fully compatible with the Desktop Version!

  3. Edit history for individual cells

    I would like to see edit history for individual cells. Google sheets has this option and it has proven invaluable so I would like to see it available in Excel Online

  4. Money in Excel: Import historical transactions

    Money in Excel: It appears that you only import a couple months of historical transactions. I would like a way to request you pull more transactions, or the ability to load historical transactions from a CSV or Excel file.

  5. Embedded SharePoint Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar

    When embedding a Excel online file into normal CSS webpage using codes, Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar.
    The only way to get to the data to the right of the view port is to click on a cell and then use the right arrow key to scroll to the right.

    Codes referenced from this official article.

  7. dark theme support for spread sheet and menu

    Dark theme for both spread sheets and menu will be very beneficial to protect our eyes as well as save laptop batteries. Just for printing you may have to reverse the colors to normal mode.

  9. Sorting Not Working

    Advised by MSO365 support to raise a bug here. The sort function is not working correctly when using excel on the web however when we open the exact same file in the application it works fine.

    When we sort a date field in ascending or descending order (as shown in OnlineIssue1 & 2) it does not sort the data correctly as some data is still in the wrong order. If we follow the exact same steps in the application the data sorts perfectly as expected (as shown in Application1).

    I dont believe this is a data issue as…

  11. Allow for custom colors or an expanded option set for choosing colors for text, cell backgrounds, and tab labeling.

    The color palette for excel online is extremely limited. Expanding the palette or allowing for a color wheel selection option or HTML color entry would be fantastic.

  14. Default print option settings feature

    Currently, with Officee365 it is impossible to set default print settings to Letter or any other size. it is also impossible to set the default scaling of the printed output. If you need to print the document several times due to minor changes, you have to manually set the paper size and scaling each and every time. This is a huge time waster and should be implemented asap.

  15. Don't autofill the "Hyperlink" field to include "http://"

    The "http://&quot; text in the hyperlink field always has to be manually deleted when copying + pasting links into cells in a worksheet otherwise the link will appear with "http://https://[link]&quot; and the link won't work properly.
