  1. "Ideas" tool improvement suggestion

    I'd like to be able to select data and then use the "Ideas" tool, instead of the "ideas" always using the whole spreadsheet

  2. Excel - "tagging" comments to specific users

    We would like to have a feature to add a comment to a cell in Excel but to assign it or tag it to a specific other user. That they would receive a notification or draw their attention to that specific cell/comment and what action or input is needed from that specific user. Then they could reply to the comment or resolve it.

  3. Make it possible to change the colours of bars in charts using right-click

    In the online version of Excel it isn't possible to change the colour of bars in charts or graphs on the chart menu. You can't right-click to change them either. I use charts a lot in my work and need to be able to change the colours as easily as I can in the desktop version of Excel

  6. Copy paste screen-shots directly without saving as images.

    At the moment user has to save the screen-shot as image and then use excel insert option to add image to the sheet, it would be awesome to have a direct paste option,

  9. Filtering should refresh focus in the document

    In Excel Online if we perform a search and afterwards filter for specific fields we are shown the lower part of the Workbook, many times consisting of blank cells.
    Desired behaviour here would be to have the focus in the Workbook shifted towards the top of the Document after performing a Filtering.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Have a file with multiple columns: Number [1..200]; Cities; Status[free busy].
    2. Search for 150. So the focus goes to the lower part of the page.
    3. Filter for one of the Cities.
    4. Filter for free in the 3rd Column.

    Result: The focus…

  12. Summation of cell counts by doing multiple select.

    In desktop excel version, summation of numbers is provided after selecting multiple numbered cells at adjacent or non adjacent location. But in case of drive online version we can select adjacent cell but cells at non adjacent location can not be selected hence it does not give the count summation.

  13. Provide capabilities to key in your Password to those file protected

    have access to files with Password protective. Let the user key in their password to access the file instead of having to open the PC excel programs.

  15. Wish we could sort without having to undo merged cells. It should allow us to sort but the merged cell has to sort a a complete cell

    have the ability to sort merged cells along with those that may not be merged with it but the information goes with that in the merged cells

  16. Improve Security into Collaboration and Sharing

    Provide extra security when sharing a sheet. It is very risky for an editor to be able to copy a spreadsheet or share with other people without the owner permission. Only the owner must have that option unless provided to certain people.

    The person that can edit must only be able to edit. Owner must have a list what the editor can and can't do. Example Print, download, Copy in sheet, Share to other people etc.
