  1. Side by side in Microsoft Teams

    Could you please add the option to view multiple sheets side by side in Microsoft Teams just as you have the option in Excel desktop?

    Thanks! :)

  3. Include a script search box in the Scripts pane

    Add a search box in the Scripts pane. Also , perhaps, add the ability to create folders in the pane , too. Enter text in the search box would filter those scripts that are listed making it easier to find the one you need. I am, already, having to scroll through a hundred scripts and that is, only, after a few months of using Office Scripts. In a year or two I will have hundreds of scripts which will, actually, be impossible to navigate.

  7. Linking of excel sheets in multiple files using formulas in sharepoint.

    Working in single file is a basic thing. However linking of multiple excel files through formulas are not present in sharepoint. For example VLOOKUP(), SUMIF(), MATCH() e.t.c.

  8. 2 Step Verification for individual Office (Excel, Word, etc.) Files

    This is much needed in the business community when the product for sale, e.g. is a single large Excel file. Present day password protection capabilities don't provide the necessary protection that a compiled program does. 2Fa would solve this concern.

  10. Be able to change formatting for single word in a cell (Ctrl H)

    Ctrl H - change format for a single word within a cell rather than apply the format change to the entire cell's content.

  11. Row height adjusts for merged cells as well

    Very simple: unmerged cells, when wrap is enabled, result in the row height adjusting accordingly. Wrapped cells do not, which is a formatting gap.

    Please can merged cells, enabled for text wrap, adjust the row height just like for a single cell meeting the same conditions.

  13. Pause edit of a calculation

    Often when one is editing complex formulae in a cell it becomes necessary part way to leave that cell and double check some of the input cells. This is not currently possible without 'cancelling' that change and losing any progress, prefixing it with ' or 'entering' the change. ' or entering the change has other impacts, e.g. #value forcing a column width adjustment.

    By adding a pause calc option, this would allow one to 'step out' of the editing process but keeping that cell in a limbo stage (identifiable in the Evaluate formula) based on the cell's last entered value…

  14. Cell screentip formula

    Complex Excel-based business tools are often used widely in the organization or by clients. User guidance would be considerably aided (even more so than cell comments) by a new formula, or a modification to the HYPERLINK formula.

    Firstly, XHYPERLINK (like XMATCH) to allow users to exceed the 255 char limit.

    Option 1: New formula
    =XSCREENTIP(linklocation,[friendlyname])

    Option2: Hyperlink formula update
    =XHYPERLINK(linklocation,[friendlyname],[link_click])

    where the new [link_click] in the modified XHYPERLINK formula is TRUE or FALSE, false resulting in a non-clickable hyperlink (i.e. purely a screentip cell).

    In addition, to be able to concatenate this new function, for example: …

  15. Make standard colors primary instead of Theme Colors.

    Have the option to have Standard Colors and its gradients as the working colors or have Theme Colors as working colors. I prefer the Standard colors as they match my other applications and the Theme colors do not.

  16. Add the option to use formulas for conditional formatting

    What we really need is consistency between Excel 365 and the desktop version. I love the Xlookup function, and since it is only available in 365, I am stuck working on the web. That means that I need other options, such as using formulas for conditional formatting and more color options, on the 365 version as well. I read that more color options are available in 365, but I haven't seen them yet.

  17. Improve the compatibility in between Excel Desktop version and Excel Teams version. Hiding Columns and adding pdfs is impossible

    It is impossible to make columns invisible or add pdf files to the Excel Microsoft Teams file. It would be great if the online Version of Excel would be fully compatible with the Desktop Version!

  20. I don't know how to turn off autocomplete on 1Drive

    I can't use Excel for the web because I don't know how to turn off autocomplete, which has been causing data entry errors and is an extreme annoyance
