  3. cursor visibility

    Please improve the online edition for cursor visibility? We still have a poorly visible cursor (green and has no editable options) in Office Excel 365 due to the restrictions on not allowing Windows schemes it appears. It may seem not to be a problem when looking at a simple sheet. But for very large complex sheet with colour this is major issue. This is a problem for partial colour blindness, and especially where the cursor must be used on coloured sheets. No contrasting colour is applied. Can we have an option to have -
    1). A larger cell cursor line…

  4. Setting to Block Excel Online

    I have some complex excel files with Macros and references to other spreadsheets.

    They are stored in a Sharepoint portal which exposes them to Excel online.

    As soon as somebody opens them in online it breaks the external spreadsheet links and breaks some macros functions.

    And since the macro doesn't work in Online would be great to have a slider, Block from Excel online. It would start to load online then see this flag make no changes and force local excel to open and download.

  5. CHECK-MARK A CELL

    I'd like a way to check-mark a cell instead of highlighting it...to show I've completed the task in that cell. For instance, if I'm going thru a listing and checking it against something, I'd highlight in yellow that I've checked it, but I'd rather have a small check-mark in the cell. So I don't have to un-fill the color etc. A quick way to tag a cell...check-mark that toggles off and on.

  8. Make lables for charts work in excel online

    When you hover over different points on a chart in Excel you can see the values of those points. This does not work with Excel online. Because of this I will often have to open the file in Excel as opposed to just using online.

    Make every feature supported in excel online just like the actual excel. Only then People will start using excel online.Unless Excel online is supporting all features, people wouldn't be using your cloud based platforms like Microsoft TEAMS.

  13. Add developer tab including VBA

    Enable a developer tab so that users can add macros and edit the VBA behind them. JavaScript would be nice to be able to use as well.

  14. Color or the text in one cell

    With the current version of Excel Online, once you change the font color of a particular text in single cell it automatically changes the font color of every text or data in that cell.
    It would be handy if we could use different colors for the text in one cell

  20. Open Excel application automatically

    It would be great if there was an option to open the Excel application automatically instead of having to manually click "Open in Excel".
