Make Power Pivot available in all versions of Excel
Previous title: "Make the Power BI Family - PowerPIvot + PowerQuery + PowerView and PowerMap available in all versions of Excel".
We’re happy to report that Power Pivot is now in all current Windows editions of Excel, including Office 2019 (perpetual) and Office 365 (subscription).
In older versions of Excel (Excel 2013, Excel 2016) only certain Windows editions (Pro Plus and higher) include Power Pivot.
Thanks for helping us to make this a reality!

The MS Excel Team are doing another 'Ask Me Anything' (AMA) over on reddit on the 18th Oct as announced in this reddit thread: https://redd.it/74ytcd
maybe an opportunity to let your thoughts be known directly to the team - this thread seems to be being ignored
You can´t even upgrade as far as I know. If you have bought you license from Microsoft you can reverse it within 30 days. I bought my Office 365 license (Yes, of course believing I bought a "full version...(I even checked with their support) " from another source, and I they do not refund a penny. I have truly fought for it, no luck. "Contact Microsoft". Microsoft: Contact you re-seller.
I am as disappointed as everyone else on this thread and all the rest out there. Furhter, it takes time and effort to figure out that excel is no longer complete. Shape up Microsoft and change this!
Can't even figure out where to upgrade and how much it will cost! Very disappointed!

However I purchase Excel, all components should be included, unless I am knowingly acquiring a ‘lite’ version.

Dumb is as Dumb does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we want PowerPivot to be in all versions of Excel
As a user below me said, don't get greedy as the next generation may not consider Excel after growing up with Google Sheets. Give users more than than need, not less, or you might find yourself the 21st Century version of LOTUS 1-2-3 ....... they too thought they were indispensable .......

It's not available even for O365 Business subscriptions https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Where-is-Power-Pivot-aa64e217-4b6e-410b-8337-20b87e1c2a4b
Deceptive having these elements missing from 365 Excel and an obfuscated view of what versions contain. Very frustrating. Now to revert to my old 2010 version ...
disappointed.....would not have purchased if it had been more clear
Case Number 1396986161 - Many of us use PowerPivot in office. We also need to continue using it at home for those who have office 365 Home. Please make the Add-in available to office 365 Home.
PowerPivot is the next generation of Excel, something that will propel the use of Excel by young minds and then into business. However, if you remove features for the sake of greed guess what happens. The youth never see your wonderful new tool and then consider it no better than Google Sheets, when they enter work they will see no reason to use Excel and companies slowly but surely move away from Microsoft Office to Google Office or other alternatives. You make money by charging large fees on companies, giving home and school users all the features of enterprise users does not take away from enterprise users paying for it. Consider this as advertising to home and school users for the future.
Why do I need to have 2 MS Excel apps in my laptop, PowerPivot is not available as standard in Excel and you have to buy separately as a stand alone or upgrade to Office 365 Pro Plus/Office 365 Enterprise plans. These gives multiple licenses yet I do not need them and I do not want to pay for something I do not use.
I have the Office 365 University and it's very frustrating to see that resources so powerful and useful are not disponible in the universitarian platform. When going out the college, it is important to have the knowledge and, to Microsoft, it is a form to fidelize future profissionals to keep working inside Excel.

I'm trying to complete an MS office online course, and ideally need power pivot. Not helpful. Should have been clearer. When I try to do what I need, I get a try fixing message. 3 times I tried before finding out from a message board that it's not included.
Adam S commented
PowerPivot should be included in all versions of 365. No clear path to upgrade without owning 2 versions simultaneously for next 6 months. I feel duped.
Ying Min commented
I would like updated versions of excel to include this as well. I don't know why i upgraded to a dumbed down version :(
Now i feel upgrading from 2010 to 365 was a very bad move. I don't have powerpivot anymore and as it is essential for me and my team, we are going to rollback the upgrade. This is huge disappointment. What was Microsoft thinking?
Lorenzo Di Marco commented
no powerpivot in O365 Home so I'd need to revert to Office 2010 to get it...Are you serious? Knock ,knock ...anyone home at Microsoft?
one more voice of frustration on this topic. I can understand microsoft not including powerpivot in certain versions of office 365, just as office (home and student) doesn't contain Access.
What i can't understand is how they hide that fact with deceptive advertising that speaks about "the office you know and trust" when their product is anything but that. If i were the litigious type, i'd jump on this straight-up falsehood immediately.
