  2. Be able to group tabs the way Onenote does

    By using a tab system the way Onenote works (with tabs showing vertically on the right hand or left and side) would significantly improve the usability of large workbooks, as you could group sheets into sections like, inputs, calculations, outputs, setup etc. It would also make it easier to see a listing of tabs rather than having to scroll along the bottom trying to find what you are looking for.

  3. Fix the small resolution dialogs, like Text to Columns, Edit Links and more

    Many dialogs are small and haven't changed since the days of 800x600 size displays. The Text to Columns dialog in particular only manages to show 5 lines and 63 columns using just ~450 * 80 pixels. I have a huge monitor. This is completely unnecesary. Other old dialogs can be resized, but still have default windows and column sizes appropriate for latter 1990s monitors.

    Please fix this dialog and any others that are either not capable of resizing, or have inadecuate defaults.

  6. Replace Document Version Option

    It would be nice if there was a file upload option for replacing a document on OneDrive. I've run into a perfect instance for this feature. I downloaded a document, made extensive changes to it, but need to replace the older version on OneDrive. Currently, I have to delete the shared document, upload, reassign sharing/permissions and write a message to alert users that I uploaded a new version. But if this feature was present, I could simply upload this new document and the previous would be replaced. I could not apply the extensive functionality using the "Online" version, the "Open…

  7. Additional Date Functions

    Hi,

    Love Excel -- the one thing which is always a pain is working with dates (which is quite common). Although it is possible to do with long formulas these are really common things which I think deserve its own formulas:

    1) Adding to dates with the type of component specified: e.g. it would be greate to add 1 month, or 2 years or 5 minutes to a date time in a very clear readable way: e.g. DATEADD(<component>,<date>,<increment>) ... to add 17 months to the date in A1: =DATEADD("M",A1,17)
    2) Unhide DATEDIF ! It's there, but people don't know it. …

  8. hyperlink formula

    Please fix the hyperlink formula's in excel online. I know there is an option to embed but using a formula allows me to hyperlink to the next available blank cell rather than just a static location like A1. Here is the formula:

    =HYPERLINK("#INDEX('1102'!A:A,MATCH(REPT(CHAR(122),255),'1102'!A:A)+1)","Silver Poly T-Shirts (1102)")

    Either that or please add an option in the hyperlink embedding process to go to the next blank cell in a column or row.

  12. More Room

    On a small 13 inch screen the online excel is cluttered and takes up space. I suggest getting ride of the top bar that reads, "Excel Online".

  13. Offline Functionality for Editing Shared Documents

    As a user who goes in and out of network/wifi access, I would like to edit shared documents "offline" that will temporarily store my data locally until I am inside my network/wifi area when I can sync the data back to the master document.

  18. survey form save button and return to survey

    There are times when I have a lengthy survey. One page is too long and the user may not have the time to complete the survey in one sitting. The ability to save the survey would be helpful. Perhaps the user could enter their name & email address and then receive a link in their email to return and complete the survey. This feature should be part of the survey design setup when creating the form.

  19. Add an option to boot users on shared documents if idle for a certain amount of time.

    In my office, we are currently running into an issue that people leave the office still logged in to live documents. This causes a problem because at the end of the day we like to have one person open the document in the desktop app so they can make formatting changes, etc. This is not possible with the forgetful users still logged in.
