    • Pivot

      I build our company stats. Having the ability to have pivot tables with full slicer and filter support would have a major impact on mobile use of excel.

      I was surprised that this was not the case with using excel via windows continuum

      • A button that switches to excel desktop

        Should be a button that switches to excel desktop when you need a feature that's in desktop version.

        Too much of a pain to close the mobile app, open desktop excel, find the file .....

        • Ability to open any file, even if not editable

          Just as the iOS version, all files can be opened, not all can be edited or all functions are available. However, all can be opened.

              • Autosum for Excel mobile

                For the mobile application, it would be nice to have the autosum capability when I select a range of cells. Today I have to enter a formula in a cell.

                                • Excel mobile needs the cell autocomplete (predictive text option)!

                                  in the desktop version, if i start typing in a cell a popup list of predictions appears allowing me to select something that already exists in the column. for example the word apple in a list of fruit would be predicted for me as soon as i type 'a' . This would save me hours of work while data entering using the mobile version in the field! please please add this feature so that i dont have to write out everything over and over!

                                  (2016-04-05 Dan [XL]: added "autocomplete" to title

                                      • Provide a facility to import a .csv file in Excel Mobile

                                        I have a frequent need to import data in .csv format into Excel Mobile. A facility to do so and edit the input layout prior to saving the data as a worksheet would be most welcome.

                                        • Show file name in worksheet, without path name - =FILENAME(). Cell("filename") gives path etc. want only filename

                                          Have alternative to the Cell("filename") so that only the file name shows in the cell, ie without lengthy path name etc.
