  2. money in excel

    Allow for future cashflow view. It would be great to see if I have enough money in a single bank account for the future transactions I have for the month (or further into the future). This allows me to see my future cashflow predictions which are not like having a budget. This is the one single feature that Tiller doesn't have, Money in Excel doesn't have and I have jerry-rigged in YNAB. This would include a view by bank with a balance column. I created this myself by adding a tab and using a combination of the 'unique' and 'filter'…

  3. Date picker button for excel in offfice 365 for Windows 10 64 bit

    I am so surprised that there is no Date picker function available in Excel 365. I see that this function existed and has been removed. this makes no sense to me what so ever. This is what has been pushing me away from Microsoft. This is why I have stopped using One note ( due to feature removals) and seek other options as you just cant rely on such thing.

    I feel less protective of Windows/ MS at home and hence Apple and Google devices have started replacing MS specially by Kids. Surface pro 4 was highly disappointing. So now…

  7. Track changes request

    Request is to enhance the track changes

    1- Give us the possibility to track changes on specific sheet.

    Often we have a sheet for data processing and we do not wanted to track changes on that specific sheet.

    2- Track changes only in a specific area of a sheet

    Same as previous but apply to a specific region of a sheet as not the whole sheet need to have changes to be track

    3-Have the history sheet always visible

    To see history we have to go inside track option and enable the track sheet, in intensive review session we would…

  8. Money In Excel- AutoCategorize Transactions

    I'm still figuring out how Money in Excel auto-categorizes merchants. I'm assuming it's based on merchant MCC codes.

    It would be wonderful if categorization could be done with a simple vlookup based on merchants listed on a separate tab.

  9. Edit history with username on every cell

    when you share a file with multiple users and they edit multiple cells with different values. It would be great to have a "Cell history" which will show us the edit history of a particular cell by any users. Information like what they changed and when they changed it (with username). This feature is available in Google sheets and its amazing to keep a track of whos changing what.

  11. excel Chinese Conversion

    1、when using the Chinese conversion function, there always a window pop out showing "Your workbook is not saved. You may not always roll back to where you are after conversion", even click "Don't show this dialog again", it still popped out every time I click convert.
    2、When you choose a box in the excel, click convert, it will convert the entire excel, but I only want to convert the one I choose. Only if I choose two boxes, this function will apply to the two I choose, it is strange that I cannot only choose one box.

  12. Money in Excel: monthly reconciliation

    Money in Excel template: I'd like to be able to do a monthly reconciliation against the monthly statement from my bank. I see there are templates for reconciliation. Could one of them be integrated into the Money in Excel template?

  13. Scroll to "Last/First sheet" buttons

    The current way of navigating sheets is slow and strenous, the "Scroll to last/first sheet" buttons were available before next to the " scroll to next/prev sheet" buttons then they have been removed.
    So, please bring back the "Scroll to last/first sheet" buttons.

  14. XLOOKUP to return the multiple match if result found

    Currently we have FILTER Function which can return multiple result in a array.. but extending the Power of XLOOKUP by adding the 7th Argument to return the multiple match in array form.
    By default it should return only single value but the 7th Argument can allow us to return all the multiple match.

    If you like the idea please VOTE & SHARE it to make it happen 😊

  15. I think that arrays should be able to pass in expressions

    In Excel there has been a bunch of Array work done. I think we should be able to pass expressions into an array...

    Something like this:
    ={sum(1,2,3),count(1,2,3),average(1,2,3)}

    so that I can dynamically generate a spill out list of expressions or perform a "lookup" function to dynamically select an expression to run within a cell by array position

    =lookup(2,{sum(1,2,3),count(1,2,3),average(1,2,3)})
    this expression would evaluate like this:

    =lookup(2,{6,count(1,2,3),average(1,2,3)})
    =lookup(2,{6,3,average(1,2,3)})
    =lookup(2,{6,3,2})
    =3

  16. XLOOKUP to return an array of ranges

    Currently XLOOKUP can return an array of return values, given an array of search values, OR a range corresponding to a single search value. Like other functions, it does not return an array of ranges but, rather, truncates the calculation.

    This may have been acceptable in the past when the expectation was to copy formulas across to return values that logically form an array. As dynamic arrays receive increasing use, the expectation will change and the failure of a range to spill will be far more problematic.

  17. improve Power Query extracting data from multipage-PDF

    Power Query is great and finally can import PDF - me and my clients were hoping to get that from PowerBI for a long time! Thanks a lot.

    But: multipage PDF files often have headers/footers on each page. Frustrating: you have to import and combine every single page.

    Please improve extraction and combining of multipage PDF, perhaps in the same way 'get files from folder...' works.

    Please vote!

  19. Please introduce Split formula, uniqueifs, countuniqueifs, flower bracket functionality (see description)

    Please introduce Split formula, uniqueifs, countuniqueifs, flower bracket functionality for example =UNIQUE({Z:Z},{A:A})

    Also, please upgrade the protection similar to Google sheets or rather launch all Google sheet functions here as well.
