Please add a padlock icon on the sheet tab for worksheets that are Protected.
The padlock icon already exists for worksheet tabs on Excel Online, and it is very helpful for quickly assessing which tabs are locked in large files. Please consider adding this functionality to Excel (desktop).
We don't like this feature either. The lock takes up to much room on the tab so if you have multiple tabs scrolling through them is an issue.
Can the lock icon be taken off?
I need the padlocks removed asap. My users are viewing it as a challenge. It is creating friction that is not needed. It is one thing to not allow a user to do certain things, it is another to put up a sign to constantly remind them.
I don't like this idea. It would make the tabs wider - so you would not be able to see as many tabs.
If Microsoft does this, please make displaying the lock icon an OPTION that can be set by the user. Please and thank you...
