  1. Make comments filterable. It would be great to be able to only see "open" comments (i.e. filter out "resolved" comment threads).

    Make comments filterable.

    It would be great to be able to only see "open" comments (i.e. filter out "resolved" comment threads).

    It would also be amazing to be able to filter comments by month that they were added (can you tell that I use the comments to trigger people to help with end of month commentary? Haha!).

    Someone else has mentioned being able to filter based on person who is mentioned int eh comment and that would be excellent too.

    Great feature that has helped me so far, I just think these changes could take it to the next level.

  2. Auto unlock inactive user who have locked an excel in edit mode (web app vs desktop app issue)

    Auto Unlock excel if the user is inactive for more than 5 mins. If users dont close the excel in web app, then other users cannot open the same excel in edit mode in desktop app.

  4. Select multiple Sheets to delete on sharepoint

    Select multiple Sheets to delete on share point. It currently makes you go one at a time. The Shift and CTRL button does not work in Sharepoint when the Excel sheet is live.

  6. Notes option is not available when using Excel in Teams. Could this please be an option.

    Notes option is not available when using Excel in Teams only comments and then they show as a list down the side with the cell (e.g. D7) as ref. Not very useful when you have to scroll through comments. Would like to see note when hovering over cell. Could this please be an option.

  7. Allow multiple user edits in real time.

    Users should have the ability to collaborate edited documents in real time. Allowing users, especially large groups, would advance the work task to be accomplished more quickly and efficiently.

  9. Is there a limit of entries in filter option on the online version?

    In the Excel online version, I noticed that when data exeeds 1000 entries, the filter shows a warning message "NOT ALL ITEMS SHOWING".
    May MS expand this limit

  12. Excel is a Powerful calculation tool. But Excel speed of loading the cells with formulas , data, filter, should be improved a lots

    Excel is a Powerful calculation tool. But Excel speed of loading the cells with formulas , data, filter, should be improved a lots

    If Speed of Excel data loading both 32bit & 64bit is improved.

    In Office Excel sheet can be widely used in many applications effectively.

    I request Microsoft has to think of autonomous Dynamic Memory Management , for Excel data Very high speed Executions.

    Currently Excel usage is limited, due to low Speed of Excel file opening, closing, data loading, formula loading, Filter loading, macro supports lag time.

  14. Please make a hotkey for merging cells

    Please make a hotkey for merging cells. It's annoying to have to scroll my mouse to the editing ribbon every time I want to merge several cells.

  16. Try to suck less.

    Excel on Sharepoint is limited, frustrating and confusing. Why is my uploaded sheet so different from the one I created on my desktop app.

    Seriously, Microsoft. If I didn't have to use this, I wouldn't!

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
