  3. Sorting with merged cells

    When attempting to sort and the error pops up that some of the cells are merged and it cannot sort, it would be super handy to know which cells or cell range contain the merged cells. Would you be able to make that happen? Google sheets can do this, which is where I got the idea.

  4. Excel update notification

    Problem: A notification is sent/received when a text/chat or excel addition has occurred in Microsoft teams. This action does not occur when there is an update inside an excel file.

    Please allow notifications to occur when an excel file is updated.

  5. CONSISTENCY of user interface for all office apps

    web user interface and local should be the same, so it remains familiar no matter where you are using the apps. Lots of time wasted looking for functions, buttons, due to different layouts, functions, buttons, menus, etc.
    Thanks.

  7. allow show detail in pivot tables online. I don't understand why microsoft makes it so hard to do basic functions.

    Why does microsoft want customers to step back into the 1990s for the online version. it degrades your brand. Show details in a pivot table is very basic. And its not on your joke of an online version

  13. Stop linking "undo" list of action to all opened files....

    When I do "undo" in a file, and then realized that Excel jumped in other list open files to continue to undo things, it really annoys me. I always have many Excel files open. And they cover different topics. When I want to undo actions, it is ALWAYS related to list of actions in one file, and never across many files.

  16. Enable retention of file type when downloading from Excel on the web

    Whenever a .csv file is shared from OneDrive or SharePoint and opened via Excel Web App, it automatically converts it to an .xlsx file.

    I want to be able to download the file and retain its original format as .csv and not as an .xlsx file.
