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

Return share workbook functionality to Excel 2016

Excel 2016 has recently removed the share workbook functionality and hidden the icon for easily sharing workbooks. It appears that this has not taken into account spreadsheets that are saved on file servers, and aren't uploaded into the cloud (ie the co-authoring functionality). Please return the functionality so that workbooks can be easily shared.

        I second this request. It is a little presumptuous of Microsoft to assume all workbook sharing can take place in the cloud. it can't. Provide the both on-prem and cloud methods if MS wants users to continue to use this function.
