  1. Fix the "problem with clipboard" mess

    This clipboard issue is well known to Microsoft and it can and should be fixed immediately. With all the Ph.D. programmers at its disposal, there is no excuse other than "We don't really care if you users have annoying and time wasting problems with our software. We are working on more important things and can't be bothered with trivial issues." Since we pay for Office 360, we users are entitled to product functionality, and this clipboard issue causes us problems we don't need. Please fix this issue ASAP!

  2. Do not issue updates that change advance settings. Last update turned AutoComplete back on and slowed down my large spreadsheets.

    Please do not issue updates that change non-security advanced settings. The last update apparently turned AutoComplete back ON, which renders very large spreadsheets with columns containing large amounts of text almost useless. (i.e. when entering a value in the column and moving to the next cell, Excel locks up for almost a minute trying to find something to AutoComplete with from a huge dataset before allowing the user to begin typing in the new cell). Not realizing an update would change this, a large spreadsheet quit functioning when presented during a web conference.

  3. Prevent Range Names from Duplicating when Sheet is Copied within Workbook

    Range names get duplicated when creating a copy of a sheet within a workbook. This is problematic because the same range name can now refer to two different data ranges. Changing the name of the range in the Formulas--Name Manager seems to have no effect, even though the range name and range in the Name Manager appear to be correct.

    The only way to fix this, after the copy has been made, is to open the Name Manager, delete all the duplicated range names, and then create the new range names as usual.

    Suggestions for improvement:


    1. Do not include copying…

  5. The ability to turn off the ram limit in excel

    I have a system with 32gb of ram and I have a pretty large spreadsheet and when I try to accomplish or make changes I always get a memory error. I know excel isn't using all my ram and I can see that clearly in task manager. If I have 32gb of ram I should be able to utilize it to its fullest potential.

  8. Pocket Excel

    My users often use the calculator to take care of simple calculations. Using Excel, in contrast, lets our users experience the breadth of depth of the incredible program Excel is. Unfortunately each user prefers the calculator because it's so much faster and our keyboards have a button for it.

    If we could have a pocket version of Excel that could used for quick and simple calculations, we would really appreciate it.
    Here's how we envision it would look:
    A grid of cells (5 rows by 12 columns) that can only be interacted with the keyboard. Functions can certainly be used…

  10. Get rid of There is a problem with the clipboard, but you can still paste your content within this workbook

    Excel get stuck on this, when doing a large background calculation. There is no way to interrupt this message popping up.

    Get rid of it already!

  11. EXCEL. You have gotten worse

    EXCEL. You have gotten worse. For my job, this is more of an inconvenience than an advantage. Will there be a way to open 2 files in one window? How you do it?

  12. Place the last two or three commands used in the right click pop up menu to help users save time

    Place the last two or three commands used in the right click pop up menu to help users save time. Example: Using Data>sort once and then being able to switch worksheets and right click anywhere and select Data>sort again without going to the menu at the top. Saves time for commands that don't have shortcut keys.

  13. The ability to pinpoint performance issues

    It would be great to be able to detect which formulas and cells in an Excel sheet require more intense computation than others.

  15. Side Scrolling

    Some mainstream Microsoft products already support side scrolling inputs from mouse inputs that are capable of doing so with a notable exception of Excel. Ironically, I feel Excel would benefited the most of this feature. I understand that a user can side scroll with the Scroll Lock enabled but if the user already has their hand on the mouse to scroll vertically then it would make sense to allow horizontal scrolling.

    Again, this capability is natively there for may popular applications with the notable exception of Excel.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Jon

  16. Allow grouping/ungrouping in protected sheets

    As someone who makes excel reports for people in the company, i must often lock the sheets so people cannot mess it up. However, when you lock a sheet, you are no longer able to group/ungroup without a macro.

    Please allow grouping and ungrouping in protected sheets

  17. Excel freezes during Microsoft Teams screen-sharing session

    I always share Screen instead of Excel app/file.  I've had to quit and re-open Excel spreadsheets too many times during Microsoft Teams screen-sharing sessions.

  19. Change active worksheet with Left hand only

    Currently Excel's shortcut for changing worksheets is Ctrl + PgUp / PgDn which works fine but requires taking the right hand off the mouse OR moving the left hand across the keyboard to an awkward position.

    It would be nice if Ctrl + Tab / Ctrl + Shift + Tab had the same functionality like in a web browser.
