  1. Option to allow add-ins in restricted workbook (IRM)

    The new Information Rights Management (IRM) is great to protect workbooks from being opened or edited by non authorized users.
    Unfortunately it also deactivates all ad-ins. In principle this makes sense as add-ins can access and modify information within the workbook. However, current restrictions go a bit too far as even as an owner/author of the workbook with FULL CONTROL my add-ins are deactivated. Should I not have full rights to do anything with the workbook? In our company thousands of users across EMEA use a self developed add-in to calculate service costs. Now they cannot use IRM as it…

  2. Money in Excel - Import Transactions

    In Money in Excel, it would be nice to have the option to import transactions. I have transactions I would like to include in my spreadsheet, but they aren't able to be imported via Plaid.

  3. Add Office Scripts to the native Excel Application

    I understand getting full blown VBA working on the web is extremely unlikely (impossible?).

    So - make Office Scripts run on native Excel (and other Office apps). That way we get

    1) One common development language across all Microsoft Office applications

    2) Support for Javascript/Typescript in native Office.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Office native platforms already supports JavaScript/TypeScript for the add-in (extensions) model. The built-in Office Scripts/automation is not yet supported.

    We do intend to support Office Scripts across other platforms and hosts. However, the priority and schedules for such expansion in coverage is not yet finalized. We are right now focussed on delivering it for Online platform with Power Automation support. Please stay tuned for future announcements to learn about the coverage.

    Thanks,
    Sudhi

  4. PLEASE.....Add TTS Turbo Macro to the Microsoft Office Add-in Store

    Training the Street, Inc. (TTS) is a prominent Wall Street financial modeling company that trains the majority of Wall Street/finance firms in the United States. TTS has developed an Excel Add-in that thousands of professionals use to enhance their Excel modeling speed. But since Office 365 has started churning out rapid updates, the Add-in has become unreliable and TTS has stated they no longer are making the updates necessary to counter Microsoft's changes. https://trainingthestreet.com/macros/

    Is there a way your Dev team could look at this simple Excel Add-in and find a way to add it to the Microsoft Office Add-in…

  5. Python integration

    It would be nice if we could use Python for writing macros rather than VBA. (I realize that it's possible to automate Excel externally using Python and the COM interface, but this is slow.)

  7. Allow for more categories in Money in Excel

    The Categories spreadsheet only allows for the addition of 20 categories. My Quicken account, which I am trying to terminate, has over 70 categories in current use. This limits the usefulness of Money in Excel.

  9. Excel VBA Web Browser Interaction Updates

    A lot of web sites are ending their support for Internet Explorer. This makes Excel a little harder to use as a crawler for specific tasks that require interacting with the web page. Will there be an Excel integration with Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Firefox? The IE objects are slowly becoming less useful within VBA.

  10. Support Web Add-in development using C# / Blazor

    Modern Web add-in platform is based on an embedded web site, development of add-ins is currently supported using JavaScript.

    Blazor is a Microsoft technology which allows to build web apps using C#. Blazor also supports JavaScript interop.
    https://dotnet.microsoft.com/apps/aspnet/web-apps/blazor

    Leveraging C# ecosystem makes modern add-in development more accessible to back-end / back-office developers, where Office automation and add-in development is often used. Blazor would also provide a migration path for existing VSTO/COM add-ins.

  11. Money in Excel should be available in Microsoft 365 business

    It looks like Money in Excel is only available for Personal and Family Microsoft 365 accounts.
    We have several Microsoft 365 Business accounts that we use for both personal and family business activities, but we cannot access this feature.
    We end up paying more at least for some accounts, but we do it for simplicity of management.
    Microsoft should make Money for Excel to business accounts as well - at least small business accounts.

  12. office scripts

    Hi Team,

    I would like to suggest making the scripting functionality available to the Microsoft 365 Family Subscription. I would love to be able to automate Excel tasks in a more modern built-in scripting environment. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Thank you for sending the feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Support for consumer accounts is under review. We’ll use this UserVoice link to update on the progress.

    Let us know if you have any scenarios in mind for automation and that’ll definitely help us with making informed decision.

    Thank you,

  13. Add Calendar Picker and Time Picker tools to the toolbox

    Cannot imagine why a the Calendar date picker was taken away... so useful and easy... (The date functions are clumsy)>
    Please give the Calendar back... and a click time picker would be good to for user interfaces

  14. Add DISCOVERHOMELOANS to Money on Excel

    Please add DISCOVER HOME LOANS to Money on Excel. I cannot access my home equity loan through the discover.com option. There needs to be a link to DISCOVERHOMELOANS specifically. Thank you.

  17. VBA doesn't save pictures

    We now can save pictures from Excel. But we can't use VBA to do the same thing. VBA needs to have the same ability.

  18. VBA doesn't let add a comment when the cell contains middle dash symbol

    I get an error 91 when I try to add a comment in a cell with "-" value.

    To fix it I have to add a space after and before of "-".

    Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1) = "-"
    Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1).Comment.Text Text:="-"

    If I made this manually, not from vba, it works fine.
