  1. Add a Reporting Ribbon to Excel to consolidate and highlight the amazing capabilities of Power Query and Power Pivot

    Tables, Power Query, Power Pivot and Pivot Tables are amazing tools that will transform the way people build their reports, but only once they know about them!

    Let's SHOUT about how good these things are and how well they work together by putting them onto a single new Ribbon called "Reporting" - something like the attached image.

    • Colar Especial - Valores Únicos

      Ao copiar dados de uma coluna com vários dados repetidos.
      Como temos a opção com o botão direito do mouse de Colar Especial > Valores, poderia ter uma opção de Colar Especial > Valores Únicos.

        • Note Box for Excel Sheets

          I would love for Excel to have a place for notes. A note box like PowerPoint has would be great for storing information about your data (where it came from, how you calculated it, notes to self, etc.)

          • Add short month name and short day name in Power Query

            In Power Query, you can convert a date in year, month, day, first day of the month, day of the week, .... You can also convert a date in month name or in day name.

            But there is no option to convert a date with the short name (Jan, Feb, Mar, ...) and the same for the day (Mon, Tue, Wed, ...)

            Is it possible to add these options on the ribbon?

                Please (it would be great to have an alternative interface similar to Microsoft Office 2003 and LibreOffice in Microsoft Office 2019)

                • Please respect user ideas!

                  If a user asks you to update VBA since he has passionate about this language and wants to see it better, you have to respect his idea and to care for it!

                  Stop decline user ideas about VBA as you did here:

                  https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304921-excel-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/8843113-bring-vba-into-the-modern-world

                  The idea that asks you to update VBA is a great idea!

                  If you have no plans currently to update VBA, you may have in the future, so you have to mark these ideas "under review" not "declined"!

                  You must use "declined" only for ideas that don't make sense!

                  • Bring back the Office Assistant

                    I would like to have the office assistant be available as an option under the help column. I liked it in the older versions of Excel and would love to have it in all versions of Excel.

                    • Please have someone check these suggestions to merge similar requests.

                      Please have someone check these suggestions to merge similar requests. I was about to put in a change request but then found 7 posts of the same request and they all have different amount of votes. All for the same thing. If they were merged the vote would be considerably more and may make the developers take note.
                      Thank you for listening

                                        • Option to make Check Boxes bigger or at least big enough to be seen

                                          The CheckBox in ActiveX controls is microscopic! You can increase the Font next to it, but you can't make the CheckBox itself any bigger. I imagine the fact that there isn't even a category above to select for suggestions for the Design Tab items tells me why this tiny CheckBox has not been addressed by the developers. 2016 was not a good release. You need some people who know how to use a spreadsheet on the development team.
