  1. Provide drop down list of columns where filters are applied with column's alphabetical label in brackets.

    This ties in with recommendations of others where they recommend changing the color of the filter button to easily identify filtered columns. Also consider providing drop down option or pop up option to list column names (with alphabetical label of column, such as (A), (B), etc). This will help to easily identify columns where filters are applied. You don't necessarily want to go to each column, but rather want to catch up with the logic / thought process you were busy with. Maybe some short abbreviated info about the values filtered as well.

  2. Please add more time formats

    Please add a time format that will allow me to format and sort times like this:

    1:30

    I want to be able to add 1:30 PM without displaying the PM and I want to sort, so making it into text will not work. I do not want 13:30.

    Thank you!

  3. Allow time format >24 h in Power Pivot and Power BI

    In order to calculate monthly call times, one has to create an overly complicated DAX formula in order to show the times above 24 h correctly. As a result, it doesn't function as TIME, but as TEXT, and one cannot use it in charts.

  4. An active sheet bar.

    I work with 10s of sheets in my workbook and switching between them is difficult and it breaks the flow of your work.

    When I scroll on the sheet bar. Instead of the current sheet the sheet bar should move (left/right) so switching between a lot of sheets becomes easy.

  7. working modes when using excel

    We are will use excel for different types of purposes...…. Entering data on a table, preparing different types of statements.... Preparing drawings by using auto shapes etc...…

    for Example, I am entering a selected data in a single work sheet from difference work sheets (or) work books. If we turn the excel in data entry mode..... then we will only enter the and selection of cells will be automatically done in sequence of columns or sequence of rows depending upon table format. If this all happened by the help of AI it will be more productive. Based on customisations when…

  10. Have a formatting option to add a line above a letter, opposite of underline, which helps in writing statistics

    Statistics uses a line above a letter, such as X to signify sample means, but Excel does not allow you to write it out. MS Office should allow you to place a line above a letter. Place this next to the underline option or in the formatting page where you can strikethrough.

  11. Why don't you respond to complaints?

    Why don't you respond when complaints are made? Why don't you follow industry best practice and
    - send a response with a complaint number and date that could be followed up
    - include the text of the complaint so that it's not lost
    - commit to addressing the problem within a fixed period.
    Many if not most of us are paying a subscription for Office as a service, and - as a customer service - it's ****. It's time for Microsoft to wake up to what customer service is all about.

  12. Opening the main Excel window in a default size and position specified by the user

    We like to open the main Excel window in the same position on our desktop each time. The only way we can do this is to assure that the last closed window was in the desired location when closed. This is because new windows open in the same size and position as the last closed window.

    The problem arises when you open multiple worksheets, which automatically arrange themselves or are moved by the user to other temporary locations. Closing any of these windows last sets a new undesired default for the next session of Excel.

    Another problem is that t…

  14. If you select Fit Outline size from Enclosed Characters in Word for Office 365, the font size in the characters does not change, but you wan

    In the monthly channel, if you select Fit Outer Border Size from Enclosed Characters as the expected behavior, the character should be resized with the default font size, but it is not resized.
    Instead of displaying Field Codes each time and changing the font size, if you select Fit Outline Size, i want the characters in the box to be automatically resized.

    Semi-annual channels are resized, but monthly channels are not resized.

    タイトル (日本語) : Word for Office 365 の [囲い文字] から [外枠のサイズを合わせる] を選択しても文字が中のフォントサイズが変わらず文字がはみ出るのを改善してほしい。

    本文 (日本語) : 月次チャネルにおいて、期待の動作としては [囲い文字] から [外枠のサイズを合わせる] を選択した場合、〇 は既定のフォントサイズで文字はリサイズされるはずがリサイズされない動作になっている。
    都度、[フィールドコード] を表示してフォントサイズを修正するのではなく、 [外枠のサイズを合わせる] を選択した場合は中の文字は自動的にリサイズしてほしい。

    半期チャネルはリサイズされるが、月次チャネルはリサイズされない。

  15. conditional formatting: change a possibly misleading text

    Replace "Regels wissen" ("Clear lines") as shown in the attached picture by something less alarming. Clear lines suggest the content of the lines is removed.

  16. SUBSTITUTES function supporting arrays of "find" and "replace" parameters

    From time to time, users need to remove multiple characters from a string. For example, you might want to remove all punctuation, or all accented characters.

    Right now, you have to do that with a lengthy nested formula using the SUBSTITUTE function. Such formulas are hard to read and challenging for a novice to debug. Or you could write a VBA user-defined function that performs each of the substitutions for you.

    The better approach would be a SUBSTITUTES function that works like SUBSTITUTE but accepts an array (or range of cells) for the Find parameter, and possibly also for the…

  17. Scroll lock shortcut should be able to turn it on AND off

    For many laptops that don't have a specific scroll lock key, scroll lock can be turned on by fn+C (which is typically dangerously close to probably the most common shortcut used in excel - ctrl+C). If scroll lock becomes turned on (whether on purpose or on accident), a user then has to open their on-screen keyboard which will have a scroll-lock key and turn it off from there. This is unnecessarily cumbersome and poses a big problem when the on-screen keyboard isn't fully functioning.

    I don't see a reason why the same short cut to turn on scroll lock can't…
