  2. Enable drawing in Excel for web

    Drawing and viewing drawing in excel files works in iOS, Windows, MacOS, but not web or MS Teams. Would like to see it work in web and MS Teams also.

  3. absent sparkline in online Excel

    Online Excel doesn't provide sparklines. Sparklines are used in Excel, compact, informative, and just darn useful. Under Insert can sparklines be made available. I tend to not use Excel online since my Excel spreadsheets lose function.

    Thank you, Terry Wright

  4. It doesn't have all functionality as desktop excel. Make Online excel = Desktop excel

    Data formatting could be made as easy as in Desktop excel. As we are very much used to mouse it will be better to have those functionality to copy paste & other functions. In simple words make Online version = Desktop version.

  5. Be able to open excel files online even if it is with unsupported feature.


    • Should let us know which particular thing that sets off the unsupported prompt

    • Even if there are unsupported features inside the file we should be able to open the file ignoring the unsupported or opening it by creating a copy without the unsupported feature

  8. Change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web

    We should be able to change the autocorrect options in Excel for the web. For instance I want to turn off the auto hyperlinking, but I am unable to do so.

  9. Excel for the web and Excel Online should handle ODC connections to PowerBI

    In PowerBI it is possible to "Edit in Excel", which creates an ODC connection to the data model.
    But the resulting report is not possible to view/slice from either Excel Online or Excel for the web from either SharePoint Online or PowerBI.
    This forces us to build and maintain separate data models for every single report.

    Please let Excel Online and Excel for the web be able to authenticate towards the PowerBI, that would make the BI tools much more useful.

  11. Add textboxes to Excel online

    Add textboxes to Excel online
    It is ridiculous that you can't add a textbox or edit an existing textbox in the ****** online version.

    Maybe you could ask Google to show you how?

  12. Show the function wizard box on Excel for Office 365 (Microsoft Teams)

    When using standard desktop Excel a 'function wizard' dialogue box appears for, as an example, an IF function. It has three boxes where the user can input the query, then IF true, and IF false. As I am a teacher and use Microsoft Teams, it is unfortunate that this function disappears when pupils are completing Excel sheets online. It would be helpful if the Function Wizard Dialogue Box was in the online version.

  16. Allow user the ability to save a custom view, including the zoom setting and the exact cells in the x,y axis.

    When we open the workbook we need to be able to get to a preset View instantly without scrolling, regardless of the view that is seen upon opening. This is different than the ability to save filtered views, although the two options should work together.

  17. Please fix the "broken" wrapping format in Excel for the web. When cells with wrap format are updated in a table, the row height collapses.

    Bug: since recent release in Excel for Web, cells with wrap format within a table collapse to default row height when edited. Row height only restored either via Ctrl+F5 page refresh, or toggle wrap format. Workaround is to set a default row height showing multiple lines, then the "collapse" is not such an issue if cell has a lot of text.

  18. Change cursor/selected cell outline color.

    The Green outline isn't always the best color for users and being able to change the outline color used to identify your currently selected cell would help immensely.

  19. Allow Users to Edit Ranges should function in Excel Online

    This functionality would be incredible for several things my office would like to implement if it worked online. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly but it appears other users have been having the same issues. When I open an excel online file in the desktop app and give specific users permission to edit locked ranges it works when editing on my computer in the desktop app but not when editing on the web app.
