  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.

      • Regularly post admin updates to the "Top Ideas"

        For instance, this idea: https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304921-excel-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/9769824-have-excel-scroll-better-when-there-are-large-cell, is the third highest voted on this page, and we haven't heard a word from Microsoft since January.

        It's frustrating that it hasn't been fixed yet, but it's so much worse not even getting updates.

        • Update data automatically in connected workbook when synced to OneDrive

          Recently, I've been having trouble with Excel. Data from one workbook is not automatically shown on the connected workbook. I have to close and open the workbook again for changes to appear. This has been happening to the workbooks only if they're synced to OneDrive.

          • Show a scale indicator in 3D Maps

            It would be helpful if you add an option to show a scale indicator (map scale) in Excel 3D Maps.

              • Copy multiple selections into Clipboard

                I've always wanted the option to copy multiple selections to the clipboard. When you paste, you'd be presented with the option of everything on your clipboard, to be able to pick which selection(s) you want to paste.

                  • Option to highlight or shade unlocked cells on a sheet

                    Set an option for locked cells on a sheet to be displayed in optional highlight or shading. This would be useful for users while working in the sheet, so as to quickly identify input cells on a sheet for example, but optional to be highlighted when printing.

                    • Show key commands when mouse over buttons.

                      When you mouse over and hover over a button it would be great to show what the key command is for that button. Cut and Copy has it, but other buttons like Text Wrap, Merge & Center, Format Painter etc could benefit from this feature.

                      Thanks Exel team. Adios

                      • If I am not mistaken, excel currently considers a blank cell the same as a cell with a zero value.

                        If I am not mistaken, excel currently considers a blank cell the same as a cell with a zero value. This is fundamentally incorrect as zero is a legitimate number. For example Billy may have 3 pencils and Bobby has no pencils. So, Bobby has '0' pencils- not 'blank' pencils. Excel excepts 0 as a first entry- but when linked to a cell it eithers displays all blanks and zeros the same way. This is a problem when a worksheet is set up for 20 children where a report is preset up with links to the number of pencils each…

                                    This is going to sound really silly, but the plural of 'cel' is 'cellen', not 'celen'.

                                        • Icon Size

                                          The icons are a little larger in Excel Quick Access Bar. My selected tools do not fit on one line and I have to expand. Perhaps the icons could be make smaller, but I don't know how to do that.
