  1. Track changes request

    Request is to enhance the track changes

    1- Give us the possibility to track changes on specific sheet.

    Often we have a sheet for data processing and we do not wanted to track changes on that specific sheet.

    2- Track changes only in a specific area of a sheet

    Same as previous but apply to a specific region of a sheet as not the whole sheet need to have changes to be track

    3-Have the history sheet always visible

    To see history we have to go inside track option and enable the track sheet, in intensive review session we would…

  2. co-authoring track changes history

    I love that using co-authoring you can manage how you share the excel file with your team wherein you can set a user as view only and the others will have the capability to edit. I however extremely need this TRACK CHANGES features 1.) alert notification real-time whenever there is change. This should have an on/off settings so you can turn this on if you want to monitor the progress real-time, 2.) you can check changes history who edit what and you can set the date so that you can select from the start and end date of the project.

  4. Edit history with username on every cell

    when you share a file with multiple users and they edit multiple cells with different values. It would be great to have a "Cell history" which will show us the edit history of a particular cell by any users. Information like what they changed and when they changed it (with username). This feature is available in Google sheets and its amazing to keep a track of whos changing what.

  8. Allow a site owner to kick a user out of a file opened in Excel Online

    If you have multiple people co-authoring in Excel Online, there are times when you need to open the file in Excel - typically for advanced formatting, etc. If someone has accidentally left the file open in their browser, there is no way to force them out and keeps the file locked. Although not always intentional, it can create a major headache by not being able to simply kick/close out that particular user from editing.

  10. Improve secutrity / protection - especially buisness oriented

    I think one of the main issues of todays excel, is the fact that one cannot protect sheets when shared with others. To clarify, i am aware that you can lock sheets and workbook with a password, but to workaround this, simply download the excel and open in google sheets, and all the sheets are unlocked.

    So what im thinking about, is the ability to secure sheets when shared, so that only you have acess to hidden/protected sheets.

    Ive got two ideas that would fix this issue, but if anyone else has a better idea, please comment!

    1) When creating…

  14. Can you add additional Banks and Credit Cards Capital One Quicksilver to your Money in Excel app?

    Can you add additional Credit Cards, Banks and Brokerage Accounts to your new Microsoft365, Money in Excel app? the app is worthless to me if I can't add all my accounts.

    Accounts:
    Credit Card: Capital One Quicksilver
    Suntrust Bank and Credit Cards
    Chas. Schwab Bank and Brokerage accounts.

    I hope this can be accomplished as I really like the idea of seeing all my income and spending in one place.

    Thank you and hoping for a quick solution.

  16. Edit Approvals

    If the spreadsheet is shared amongst a team, is there a way to approve of edits? Such as a team member makes an edit but before it is displayed to the entire team the boss/manager must approve it.

  19. Maintain hidden rows/columns in "sheet view" in Excel for Windows

    I would like the ability to create specific sheet views by hideing specific columns.
    Unfortunately hideing columns is not part af the sheet view.
    Would you please look into the option to allow users to create personal views by hideing columns not only filtering rows?
