  2. Make the webversion fully functional

    This is the message I got from Microsoft: "This feature is not available in Excel for the web. If you have the Excel desktop application, you can use the Open in Excel button to open the workbook and print rows with column headers."

    The only problem is that, even though I have installed Microsoft Office 365 on my PC about 7 times now, Office never works on my PC. I cannot even access my documents when the wifi is running a bit slow. I live in a 3rd world country so the internet is mostly slow here. I daily regret…

  4. Ability to provide a link to a certain cell within online workbook.

    Would be nice to be able to provide a link that goes directly to a certain cell within an online workbook. Ex. Need someone to approve a certain item in a large list of items within excel online workbook. Instead of them having to try and find item, link would take them directly to the correct cell and sheet within the workbook.

  6. Seamlessly import a range / sheet from another workbook(s) online.

    Would be great to have an "Import range / sheet" functionality in Excel online that would import data from one online spreadsheet (or multiple spreadsheets) to another real time.
    Ex. Say I work for a Global company. Countries have to update project sheets on a weekly basis. They cannot see other countries information but I need to be able to. Instead of having to check each individual sheet, it would be nice to be able to import the real time data into a master file (view only). That way I can track their progress easily by only having to check…

  7. Column sort specifically in Outlook's Excel preview

    It would be great if a rudimentary sort could be added to the Excel preview of Outlook online.

    As a user, I'd like to be able to preview a daily large Excel report from Outlook at a glance by seeing the first several rows. Because the report is large scrolling to the bottom is cumbersome and the top rows currently are not helpful.

  10. stacked chart format axis - axis options - bounds

    The axis for my stacked bar chart is a DATE type.
    To adujst the bounds (minimum/maximum) Excel only give me the associated number for the dates to change the bounds.
    It would be very helpful if I have choosen "DATE" as the Category the bounds should give me the same format to set the minimum/maximum in DATE format.

  11. It is useless... just get ride of it. It is good for nothing.

    Why you don't make something like a mini excel and discontinue the existing version? It is good for nothing.

  13. Allow creation of a default "Sheet View"

    "Sheet View" is a great feature, but doesn't it require the user to remember to create the sheet view?

    The problem is that if I send an invite to 100 people to collaboratively edit an Excel spreadsheet with filters, it only takes one of them to leave the filters in a nondefault state to ruin the party for everyone.

    I suggest allowing the creation of a "Default" sheet view that is used whenever the sheet is opened online for collaboration. This would allow the default view to be fine-tuned by the spreadsheet maintainer.

  15. I would rather purchase the software and not have to worry that I cannot access my documents

    If a hardship occurs and you are not able to pay for a renewal you lose your documents until you are able to renew. This is a situation that is now the new form. This is not acceptable. This is bad business. I will have to find a way to get my information out of microsoft and the only way is a purchase and then move it to a more permanent non- environment. Thanks for nothing. I really wonder if the business community is really aware of this business ethic you now have obtained?

  17. When timing out allow the user to download the file.

    When you timeout it should allow access to the file on the cloud drive and ability to download.

  18. Keep up to date with Google Sheets features

    Google is constantly updating, and seems to have a lot of features missing from Excel online.
