  2. get and transform excel online

    I know setting get and transform(power query) to excel online would be a large task. But at least being able to fetch some data from sharepoint list etc should be possible

  7. Excel Desktop vs Excel Online - online version should have all/most of the same features

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Paste/Formatting - When pasting into the online version, the format doesn't stay.

    ~ Sorting - There are very limited sorting options in the online version.

    ~ Copying data. I have about 300 lines of data that's about 10 columns wide and am unable to copy it so that I can paste it into another document and sort it the way I need (since online version has limited options for sorting, as mentioned…

  11. Lock/Unlocking worksheet ordering.

    I am always reordering the worksheets by accident when changing sheets. We should have a way to lock and unlock the worksheet bar to avoid dragging them out of order.

  16. Will the new Dyanmic Array features be coming to Excel Online (Sort / Sequence / Filter / Unique etc)

    Hi,
    I'vev just heard about the new dynamic array formulas that are coming to Excel very soon (monthly channel).

    Sort / Sequence / Filter / Unique etc

    Will these also be added to Excel Online? These features are extremely powerful and I would love to utilise these formulas on spreadsheets that I share with my colleagues with.

  17. Enable VBA for Excel Online

    Enable VBA for Excel Online. Others have suggested a scripting language like google sheets has (which is javascript). No, keep it VBA.

  19. Please make it easy to have alternating row colors.

    Why is it so challenging to create alternating colors for rows? It's as if I need a degree in Excel to understand where to do this and how to write the formula. Google Sheets makes it easy. Please, make it easy for us newbies too!
