  1. Habilitando una opción simple y clara para desproteger libros con contraseña

    Hola. He querido desproteger un libro de excell que yo mismo protegí y no encuentro una opción simple y clara para hacerlo.

    Es irónico, pero yo mismo protegí el libro y sé la contraseña pero no puedo desprotegerlo fácilmente

    Creo que una vez el libro está protegido, debería haber una opción que diga desproteger y que solicite la contraseña y de inmediato el libro quede desprotegido

  2. Widen the Year range supported by Formatting in Office 365 Home User Edition

    Please implement an earlier year range for sorting dates. As identified elsewhere, the range goes well and truly into the future but only back to 1900? Please.....
    This is not a power user function, or purely a commercial requirement. Not having it supported in the home user version of Office 365 is frustrating. It is more likely this is what a home user really needs (for genealogy or research etc) and trying to 'force' people to buy the commercial version for such a small change/functionality by restricting the range is .... well I'll say no more.

  3. Need features similar to Smartsheets

    I have been using Smartsheets in lieu of excel as it allows me to assign a row to contacts for actions in their court and sends them reminders to update progress. Also the collaboration and sharing of workbooks feature that provides current information would be very helpful with Excel.

  4. Surface numeric keyboard stays on the screen instead of going back to qwerty screen from cell to cell.

    Format surface touch keyboard that so the numeric keyboard can stay on the screen instead of going back to qwerty screen when going from cell to cell. It used to do this, but one of the recent updates changed it. I was hoping it was a glitch and would be fixed, but it hasn't. I do a weekly liquor inventory and have to push &123 button over 600 times to input numbers.

  5. Cursor controls unique to individual spreadsheets

    How about making cursor controls unique to individual spreadsheets rather than having just one global setting. I use several spreadsheets at any given time -- having the cursor move to the right after hitting ENTER is good for some of them, but having the cursor move down after hitting ENTER works for others.

  10. Add a modeless PowerPivot Measures Pane (or make the existing one modeless)

    Why is the PivotTable Fields Pane non-modal, but the #PowerPivot Measures dialog modal?

    I LIVE in that Measures dialog. I ALWAYS want to have it open. And I want to be able to park it permanently over in Monitor 1 where it can merrily not obscure my Dashboard like my Fields pane doesn't.

  11. Make all Desktop functionality available on the browser. There should be a seamless experience between browser and desktop versions.

    When I work on something collaboratively in the browser, it would be great for all shortcuts, formatting, and operations to function as seamlessly as possible.

    These are my own thoughts and words.

  12. Allow custom format input directly in Home Ribbon

    Instead of inputting custom number formats by clicking on the drop down and then selecting 'More Number Formats' and then selecting 'Custom' and then typing the format into the Type box. - Make it so you can just type in the custom format into the drop down. Like how you can type in 'Percentage' from the ribbon, it would be nice if you could simply type in values like 0.00% or MMM-YY.

  13. Enable scrolling through Help whilst text boxes are open

    Allow scrolling down the Help section whilst text boxes are open/in use - enables the action to be performed simultaneously whilst the instructions are being followed, for example Data Validation - currently unable to continue with instructions once the text box is open/in use - have to start all over again if further instructions are required.

  14. Cell fill depending on its value (percentage)

    It would be cool to colour-fill a cell depending on it´s content. With "conditional formatting" you can fill the whole cell, but i am looking for something different:
    If you have a table with relative numbers (%) you could fill the cells e.g. only 25% if the value in the table is 25%. So you can present a greater table more clearer.
    You already can plot that with a graph but not in a table design (see attached screenshot).

  19. Count function for colors and icons used with or without conditional formatting.

    I see many "ideas" like mine "flagged" as "inappropriate." Hum! Is Microsoft really interested in user inputs?

  20. Provide Within parameter for Range.Replace method

    VBA Range.Replace method applies the current Within (Workbook) setting of the Find/Replace dialog box even though an explicit range of workbook.sheet.cells is provided to the method. The desire is to replace only within the scoped range, not across all sheets of a workbook. Although the VBA can be coded to first execute a benign Range.Find instruction which "magically, without the option to indicate" resets the Within property value to Sheet, the responsibility of having to do so should not be necessary. The Range.Replace method should provide for a Within parameter and stick to the range of Sheet or Workbook according…
