  2. Excel Online - sheet print area

    Excel Online - Set Print Area - would be nice to be able to set a print area that can be saved, so that when others use the document, it will print the same way without having to redo all the settings.

  4. Multi user filtering without changing view of other users

    Generate the ability for multiple users to edit documents in Excel online and application where the users can filter for their screen only. This would allow for greater collaboration as multiple pieces of a project can be worked on in the same document without each users view being altered by one users filter.

  5. Multiple Text Colors in one Cell

    Multiple text color in current excel online is unavailable.
    The multiple color text will ease the editing & online coworking experience, especially in emphasizing a point without turning everything into the same color.
    Really hope to see this improvement updated soon.

  6. right click paste options

    Currently in Excel desktop when you copy something to your clipboard the right click menu includes a Paste Special drop down menu, as well as icons for paste, paste values, paste formula, etc etc

    In Excel online the only way you can access Paste Special options is the long way round on the Home menu. Can the Paste Special drop down menu be added to the right click (or better still the icons)?

  10. Provide an option to disable Excel Online and default to desktop version

    Excel Online continues to disappoint new users and is hampering adoption of both SharePoint and Teams. Even if the library and site collection are set to "Open in client application", every Excel file that isn’t opened directly form the library in SharePoint or files tab in Teams, opens in the garbage online version, then has to be change to desktop, then user has to close the useless window of the online version.

    There is no option to open in the desktop version for a file attached to a planner task embedded in Teams, so then it is either jump through…

  11. Zoom % should be actual

    The zoom % in Excel online is always 100%. It would be good to load the file with the actual view size saved in the file. Secondly, there is no zoom option available in the screen. We have to use the browser zoom option to do the same.

  12. Filter Views (collaborative work), zoom and freeze panes

    Hi,
    As much as I love using Excel Desktop version, online version is not that easy to use.
    Few ideas (for on-line I prefer using google only because it have features very easy to use):
    1. Filter Views - addressing the need of multiple people working in the same time, in the same spreadsheet but each on it's own view without bothering other folks

    2. Freeze panes - would be easier just to "drag" a line (as is with Google) and freeze whatever rows, columns etc.

    3. Rearrange the order of the column and rows - again referring to Google…

    Excel Online needs to be able to have full Pivot Table functions - we need to use excel online for sharing in the team but are frustrated without the ability to drill down!

  14. Show who is editing the Excel spreadsheet on Sharepoint so that I can track that person down so that I can edit the doc.

    Currently, when I try to edit an Excel spreadsheet online (shared with other users), I can't edit it because somebody else is using it. However, I have no idea who that person in the office is. It would be great if Sharepoint stated who the user is so that I go and talk to them to resolve the issue.

    In the interim, I guess I'll just use Google docs wherever possible.

  15. Add text rotation option

    Excel Online lacks one important feature: text rotation option is not implemented and even opening existing xlsx file with the text formatted as rotated is not showing it correctly

  20. Trendline with Excel Online

    Excel online needs the capability of adding a trendline to a graph. How is this not possible when it should be a basic function of any excel program? With my present job there's really no point in using excel online when it can't add a trendline. If google sheets can add trendlines then excel online should be able to also.
