  1. Touch Gestures

    Introduce more touch/gesture functionality to desktop Excel. For example the rolling list selection (dropdown) like on phones and tablets.
    Example, drag and drop a selection of cells using fingers rather than the multi step thing.
    When touching the screen make user's finger transparent:) IOW show what's under you finger in a hover box.
    Regards
    Brian

  2. Give the ability to connect to Social media and get the data for data analytics

  3. Include changes to Conditional Formatting in Undo

    If a user edits or deletes an existing conditional formatting rule, and then wishes to reverse that change (for whatever reason), clicking the Undo button will NOT help as such changes are not logged. Go figure?

  4. Provide a built-in method to do custom calendars

    I am a Financial Analyst that works for a large corporation that has a 52/53 week calendar. All of the cool features like Time grouping and PREVIOUSMONTH for PowerPivot or Excel seems to need some work around to use the tools... For example, our months always end on a Sunday which means that our quarters are always 13 weeks. The functionality built into the app would always add or subtract a few days because everything is based on calendar.

  5. Ability to customize the Open page

    In Excel 2016, Open gives a nearly blank page with the only options being Recent, This PC, Add a place or browse.

    Why is there no way to add a specific data directory?

    "This PC" give a list of files under the C: My Documents which is not where my Excel data is held with no way of changing or adding to it.

    To select the relevant directories I need therefore each time I need to go through the pain of browsing for it. There needs to be a "Favo(u)rites" in the same way as Explorer has. There is loads…

  6. Can you please give us back a window border on Office

    Office 2013 has no windows border. As a result it is very hard to grab and scale the application and you never know which window has the keyboard focus. Windows have frames for a reason, i.e. to give a visual cue which one has the focus !!
    If you insist to persist with this madness, please add an option to switch it back on and then see how many of us will switch it back on.

  8. Remove VeryHidden sheets from "File>Info>Protect Workbook" list in Backstage

    Excel 2010 or later, goto Backstage: File>Info>Protect Workbook

    Under Protect Workbook, it reads "One of more sheets in this workbook have been locked to prevent unwanted changes to data"

    There is a list of protected sheets with Unprotect buttons next to them

    VeryHidden sheets are included in the list. MS, why is that?

    Keep VeryHidden sheets VERY hidden, so users are not aware of their existance, if VBA project is locked

  9. Greater control over 'used range'

    Too often does excel blow up spreadsheets' size by extending the used range of the sheet. Sometimes deleting rows/columns and then saving doesn't always work and you are then left with a file that is too big and too ungainly. A simple option to manually override the default used range would quickly resolve this annoying, but common, problem.

  10. Options in linking workbooks

    When I select a cell in another workbook to link into my active workbook, it always comes across as an absolute reference. This is an absolute pain, because most of the time I want to extend that link to copy a number of adjacent cells and every time I have to go in and edit out the $ signs before continuing.

    So how about an Excel Option to link references either as absolute or relative ?

  12. Check and X

    Conditional formatting is not good enough. I would like a big X and a big check mark right in the main menu. This would be so usable to so many.

  13. Make it possible to change font size in scroll box

    The scroll number box and similar boxes are easy to work with. However the font of the data is only one default size and can't be changed

  14. Public roadmap for Excel

    Could you please publish the product roadmap for Excel. Other groups in MS have done so with their products, although I appreciate they are open source. It's really very helpful for the partner community and user community to know what's in the pipeline and in what time frame. Thanks a lot, Mark

  16. Office documents workbook

    When you create a new workbook, there could be an option to create an 'Office documents' workbook. Then, when you add a new worksheet you would have the option to create non Excel types of worksheet, e.g. a Word document, a PowerPoint slide.

    Ideally these would be linked, so the Word document could link to data on the Excel worksheets. This is already possible (e.g. you can embed an Excel extract into a Word document), but has the problem of the Excel file being stored in a separate location to the Word file. Having all the information stored in a…

  17. One version of Excel across all platforms

    Why do we have 'Excel for Android', 'Excel for Mac', 'Excel for ...', etc.? The user experience of Excel should be the same across all platforms.
