  1. 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!

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  12. Excel Connect to Sharepoint Online Sources.

    Users are increasingly using SharePoint online data sources like SharePoint lists, however Microsoft 365 Business Standard license doesn't allow such a simple thing of connecting desktop Excel to SharePoint Online Services.

    Providing all that SharePoint online functionality and then not allowing Excel desktop to connect to a simple list, in my option should not have to pay an enterprise license for that. This is basic functionality that should be in the standard license.

    Just a thought.

  14. Release edit access without closing excel file

    It would be handy to be able to 'release edit access' or switch to read-only when you're in an excel, so you're able to refresh a query that uses the data without closing and reopening the file.

  17. Embed Excel minisheets in emails

    If you copy and paste a segment of excel into an email allow the option of it retaining the features of excel with formulas and the recipients can modify within the email or copy and paste to a spreadsheet. You would need to translate the formulas from the tab's A1 to the copied section's A1.
