How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Sensible date formatting on X-axis of XY-scatter charts

If the X-axis of an XY-scatter chart is DATES, then it would be great to have the option to select the x-axis category labels to be spaced by (eg) months, years, etc like you can do for a line-chart. The advantage of being able to use an XY-scatter chart with this proposed functionality is that not all plotted series have to share the same x-series. Thank you!

        This would extend the nice date axis formatting of a line chart to the overall more flexible XY Scatter type.
