  1. Add a Reporting Ribbon to Excel to consolidate and highlight the amazing capabilities of Power Query and Power Pivot

    Tables, Power Query, Power Pivot and Pivot Tables are amazing tools that will transform the way people build their reports, but only once they know about them!

    Let's SHOUT about how good these things are and how well they work together by putting them onto a single new Ribbon called "Reporting" - something like the attached image.

  3. Colar Especial - Valores Únicos

    Ao copiar dados de uma coluna com vários dados repetidos.
    Como temos a opção com o botão direito do mouse de Colar Especial > Valores, poderia ter uma opção de Colar Especial > Valores Únicos.

  6. Copy multiple selections into Clipboard

    I've always wanted the option to copy multiple selections to the clipboard. When you paste, you'd be presented with the option of everything on your clipboard, to be able to pick which selection(s) you want to paste.

  7. Excel Find feature for next consecutive number

    I would like the ability for the Find/Replace box to include something like "a next integer" find. For example I search for 55235 and then click either a left arrow to search for 55234 or right arrow and it will search for 55236. Basically the function is read what is in the search box and either subtract 1 or add 1 to that value to locate the next number in a spreadsheet. Seems simple enough to do this without re-sorting an entire spreadsheet. This would still not effect the basic function of the Find Next used for finding the same…

  8. Please, please, PLEASE add double strikethrough to Excel!!!

    Please add double strikethrough to Excel. I've often wished that it was available in Excel as it is in Word. It seems if it's available in Word, it'd be easy enough to add it to Excel.

    Please consider this addition.

    Thanks!!!

  9. After a recent update, the "Insert Comment" option is no longer available from the right-click menu.

    The "Insert Comment" option is no longer available from the right-click menu. It is still visible under the "Insert" tab, but the button is gray and I can't click on it. I can use shift + F2 or I have to add a custom group to the ribbon in order to get it to work. Why has it been removed from the right-click menu and why has it been disabled?

  10. Embedding Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning) in Excel

    Team, I have some of the cool ideas to make excel intelligent. Implementing machine learning / Deep Learing algorithms as functions in excel would really enable small business entities take wise decisions. Here is a presentation I have shared in Open Data Science Conference. Would love to take excel to next level as OLD IS ALWAYS GOLD.

  11. True Dark Theme for Worksheets

    In Excel, the only way to make your worksheets/reports that you build in Excel a dark theme, is to add a background image.
    On the PowerPivot/Sharepoint server, background images are not supported.

    It would be nice if you could save an Excel sheet with dark background color as a configurable default, so that you don't have to change cell backgrounds (which go away with PowerPivot refresh), and don't have to do a background image (which is incompatible with server refresh/presentation).

    Even outside of server refresh, we find issues on file exchange too.

  12. Installing updates

    When I open Excel in my FULLY PAID Office 365, I sometimes encounter a disruptive message: "We must shut down your software to install an update!".
    While I understand the need for updates for Office 365, given that it crashes often, I suggest that you give the user A CHOICE!

    That choice is: A BUTTON that says "Install the update after I sign off from Office 365!"

    This would annoy people far less, and would result in way more updates actually installed.

    Yes, with Microsoft's habit of NEVER testing software in a realistic work environment, the fear is always: "Will…

  16. Change default fill color

    Every time I open excel the default fill color is set to yellow. We should have the option to change the default fill color to another color.

  17. Where is pivot in excel?

    After you removed everything from the ribbon I can’t find pivot. Did you remove the function entirely? All help online shows the old (and useful) ribbon.

  18. Make it possible to Protect all Sheets in a workbook simultaneously.

    Currently it is possible to protect/unprotect each sheet individually. Many other functions are able to be performed to each sheet simultaneously by selecting all sheets. Please make it possible to protect all the sheets at one time as well by selecting all sheet.
