  1. Make an integrated plot digitizer!

    See webPlotDigitizer.
    Have OCR auto-grab the x & y scale and dump data onto a new sheet or into an existing range. Use colors & shape detection to isolate different series. Can't believe this even has to be suggested, it's painfully obvious.

  6. Make it easier to obtain Excel file path from OneDrive and SharePoint

    When referencing Excel files held on OneDrive with Power Query you need to download the Excel file, open it, copy the path and then remove ?web=1 from the end of it. It would be great if there was a right click or ... option when selecting an Excel file in OneDrive that would give you this path without the ?web=1 on the end.

    This is also being voted for on the OneDrive forum here...https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913522-onedrive-on-windows/suggestions/36259678-make-it-easier-to-obtain-excel-file-path-from-oned

  7. Please allow the creation of rules for assigning merchant names to Categories when transactions are imported

    Please allow the creation of rules for assigning merchant names to Categories when transactions are imported. This would reduce the manual effort required to keep the transactions Categorized in a consistent manner.

  8. Add Chart of Account's Catagories Other Three Catagories; Assets, Liabilities, Equity

    I purchased some assets for my business and I am unable to list them as such when my transactions are imported. In addtion, I can't list a payment on a liability where only the interest portion of the payment is actually an expense. Why not have all the Chart of Accounts Catagories: Income, Expenses, Assets, Liabilities, and Equity ????

  10. Please allow user to expand the Text To Columns pop-up window

    I found Text to Column pop-up is not allowed the user to increase the size of pop-up window.

    In Text to Column the most important is Preview area, especially in case of Fixed Width.

    As of now, the preview area displays only 4 rows of data. It's very difficult for the user to take the decision based on the same. To check the below data user has to scroll. It's little hectic task.

    I suggest the MS Team to look into the same and resolve.

  14. Data Source Setting Failover List

    I regularly work between the office and at home. When in office, I point my workbook to a database server by its hostname. When at home, I need to forward traffic intended for that server through an SSH tunnel. Consequently, I use port forwarding. So any time I switch from home to office, I have to update my Data Source.

    Would it be possible to have Excel keep a list of data sources such that if it can't access the first one, it fails to the next?

  15. Populate missing data in Stock data Types

    Stock Data Type:

    Need to populate attribute fields. Currently, a crazy number of fields associated with a security still show up as "#Field! - lots of this data such as RETURNS over the various time frames (YTD, 1 yr, 3 yr, 5 yr) would be incredibly useful and increase productivity.

  16. Improve management of Credentials (usernames/passwords etc.) in Power Query and Data Sources

    Managing credentials in PowerQuery and other data imports is a pain and is all over the place especially if you pull in data from external systems with password expiry and when you share workbooks with embedded connects.

    Is it possible to manage all credentials in Excel centrally with sane ways to change/update passwords and see what credentials are shared/not share when sending/sharing a Workbook? I.e. a big button called "Manage Credentials" which shows a list of all usernames and passwords/credentials, an option to change it, an option to not embed the password, to always ask for a password, to switch…

    Hello,

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback.

    We would like to inform that Money in Excel currently doesn’t support Lakeview Loan Servicing accounts on the template. We understand that it would be useful to facilitate the transactions from that financial institution so we will share your feedback to the apt team for review.

    Thank you for using Money in Excel.

    Best,

  19. Smart Paste for html tables

    When pasting from a web page, Excel assumes an input element like a checkbox as a control, it creates checkbox controls and activates or keeps them unchecked, depending on the html input.

    But what one needs from Excel is to interpret a checked or un-checked input control from an html table as TRUE / FALSE data.

    Similar smart behavior can be applied to other controls where smart text is the default for pasting and the selected value or text becomes the data from html.

  20. Text Import Wizard needs default preference settings for delimiter, fixed vs delimited, first row etc.

    This can't possibly be a new idea, but I cannot find another one to vote for.

    Please add a preference for the default field delimiter in the text import wizard. In my case, the delimiter is always a comma and every time I import I mutter to myself "Tab - I have never seen a tab delimited file", and this is not healthy. When I'm old and senile muttering away to myself in my wheelchar with my plaid blanky over my kneeds, this is what I will be muttering, and I really would rather be reciting Shakespeare or Auden.

    I…
