  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.

  2. select date for open/close stock

    You should be able to pick dates when selecting stock info.

    E.g set the date as 06/11/2019 to get XNAS:MSFT open price on that day.

  3. Vertical, Hierarchical Worksheet Tab Column at the right instead of Worksheet tabs at the bottom

    Instead of having worksheet tabs at the bottom of the viewing window, put the worksheet tabs in a column to the far right. This way you can see more tabs on the screen at a time and use longer more descriptive worksheet titles. This would make worksheets much easier to navigate and organize. Furthermore it would be great to make the tabs able to be hierarchical as in the attached example where Schedule 4 has a drop-down arrow that that reveals tabs for sub-schedules a, b and c. Of course please keep all of the fill color options for the…

  6. Give feedback regularly on suggestions on UserVoice for Excel (at least for the popular or hot ones)

    It's great to be able to suggest improvements to Excel, express our frustration with features that don't work as expected or communicate use case that we, as users, think should be supported. It's a great opportunity for Excel to improve brand involvement, attachment and brand responsiveness (and of course of improving the product and user satisfaction).
    BUT
    feedback from admins is so irregular and infrequent... sometimes years... even on some of the most popular suggestions
    that this site end's up contributing to our frustration and eroding the trust in the Excel brand.
    Microsoft Excel is a strong brand, but no…

  7. 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.

  8. Increase the 32,767 charachter limit per cell

    When using the WEBSERVICE function to call API data, it is very constricting to what this function can do if a single cell can only contain 32,767 characters. If the character limit was increased or there was a way to go around this limit that would make working with files that have more that 32,767 possible.

  9. When creating a data validation drop down box, allow use of list, already created at File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists

    I've already created a list at: File, Options,Advanced, Edit Custom Lists... Why should I create a new list for my data validation drop down? Why not allow me to use the list already created?

    Every time I open excel the default fill color is set to yellow. We should have the option to change the default fill color to another color.

  15. New Template, Investment Tracker, Use in UK

    This is a great idea. But I am in UK and entering my shares does not work.
    (XLON:RDSB) produces a field error.
    (XLON:AV.) produces a US$ price which is about 10 times the actual £ price.
    The template is just what I need; but as with many others I have looked at it is not easily adapted for UK use. This severely limits the value of their subscription for UK users of Office 365.

    Can UK versions be supplied, please?

  20. 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.
