Add pivot chart feature for Mac.
There isn't a pivot chart feature available, and if anyone uses excel above middle school level will require the tool. On behalf of every college student out there, please solve this issue asap, there is absolutely no reason to why this would be acceptable.

Easy ... remember the roots of the original Excel development (for Mac !!) and make Mac and Win Excel versions equal (they cost the same !!)
Excel for Mac has a VBA editor which is total ****. The VBA editor in Windows is better (although with latest upgrade the help function has been completely removed and replaced by a link to www, which makes it totally useless when working offline (on a plane for example). I am paying the same price for my Office products, and Excel was BORN on a Mac back in 19841985, so why is Office so blatantly discarding their Mac customers ??? Why can't I use VBA User Forms on Excel 2016 for Mac ??? (just as one example) ??? Why can't…

Add power pivot and VBA to Mac excel
There are very few addins in excel which can be added. it is time to create and support more addins for Mac. If Apple can solve most of those technical problems of data analysis, it is much better for it to occupy the market. I really don't want to download a windows system in my Mac.

Restore the pivot table wizard to Excel for Mac
Restore the pivot table wizard for the Mac version, as you have for the Windows version. This is a critical tool to help normalize data via the multiple consolidation range function (as described in this article http://www.tektips.com/faqs.cfm?fid=7103).

Layout for Excel for Mac make it exactly like Windows, Adobe did it with all their apps
The MAC version of Excel (and all Office apps) are different than the Windows version. Why!!!
I have participants coming to my college classes to learn Office, most are on Windows PCs. But there are a few that are on MACs. I have to tell them that MACs are different. Why not make both version exactly the same. Adobe did it with all their products. Please make both versions the same so we can use one book for both. Then we can also teach for either platform in one class!11 votes 
Solver in Excel for Mac gives wrong answers to problems with binary variables. I teach an optimization class where this is a big problem.
Solver in the latest version of Excel for Mac gives wrong answers to problems with binary variables. I am a professor and I teach an optimization class where this is a big problem. Running Solver in the attached file (and many others) generates wrong answers in the latest Excel for Mac. It works fine in other versions of Excel, including Excel for Mac 2011.

Return an enterprise quality vba to Excel for Mac 2016 or later. Make the editor a real editor. Stop treating Mac Excel users like we don't matter.

Fix VBA recording issue
Something I came across  which I suspect has been documents elsewhere but I can't readily see it so here goes.
When recording a macro in excel for mac 2016 for some reason the action of opening a file does not get recorded. The recorder literally doesn't register that you have opened the file. (Its a very useful step to provide the full syntax for the file path of the relevant file).
However when you close the file  that step is recorded as ActiveWorkbook.Close.
It took me a while to work out that the syntax from 2011 to 2016…

Please give Mac users of Office 365 Excel the SWITCH function too
I have an Office 365 subscription and it's infuriating that the SWITCH command which I can use on my PC will not work on my MacBook version (OF THE SAME SOFTWARE FROM THE SAME SUBSCRIPTION!).....Isn't it time you synchronised all versions of the software to give the same functionality to all users regardless of platform?

Make a Mac 2016 version of Excel that has all the same key commands as the Windows Excel
There are missing key commands on the Mac version of Excel that I need to use. These features are exclusive to Windows Macs which makes it a complete hassle to work with Excel if you are a Mac user. Some features include the Quick Analysis, Find & Select, including such layouts as the Page Break layout.
