        • 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.

              • Make the keyboard shortcuts the same between Excel and Excel online.

                In Excel hitting Ctrl Y on the keyboard is the command you can use to create multiple new lines in a spreadsheet. In Excel online the Ctrl Y combination means "redo" Making commands like this between the two would be helpful.

                • Allow Header and Footers in Excel Online

                  At the moment there is no Header and Footer options in Excel Online. Existing Excel documents uploaded lose their headers and footers.

                  • excel online forms Table formulas cannot be calculated automatically

                    Excel online Forms cannot automatically calculate the form after writing data, only manual recalculation can be performed. This BUG only happened this month, which was not found before.

                    • More conditional formatting options

                      Add more conditional formatting control; e.g.
                      > font size;
                      > cell merging;
                      > fitting text / cell contents to the size of a cell or merged cell.

                        • Allow object embedding in excel online

                          My team works with excel with Visio Drawing embedded in the file. However, we need to always edit it in desktop version because the embedded object is not supported in Excel Online.
                          Please allow embedding object in the online version of excel, please.

                          • Microsoft Teams (Shared File Editing)

                            While working in a file on Microsoft Teams (shared-style file editing and viewing) I notice that you see what others are doing in "real-time". I was working in an Excel File and when I would filter a column, other users would see it and think something happened on their system so they would re-filter their columns and it would change what I was doing. This can be a real nuisance in a company setting. Either the Autosave feature should be able to be turned off (forgive me if that's an option and I just haven't found it) or you should…

                              • 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

                                  • Examine copy and paste function within the browser version of Office 365 Excel

                                    Copy and paste function is so hit or miss in Office 365 Excel.

                                    For example, formatting of tables is completely lost even when I'm copying and pasting from one tab of Office 365 Excel to another.
