  1. Put ‘FORMS” back into the ribbon

    When setting a table The “Forms” option is no longer available. Strangely enough that was one of the reasons I purchased 360.

  2. Permit opening and closing groups in protected worksheets

    It is annoying to have to unprotect a worksheet each time you need to open or close a group.

    When protecting a worksheet, have a tick option to permit this or not.

  6. I want to be able to sort my sheets/tabs in alphabetical order within one worksheet.

    Create a one-click option to sort tabs/sheets within one workbook the same way you can sort data within your worksheet cells.

  7. Ability to Drag and Drop Rows/columns to re-order

    I would like the ability to drag-and-drop rows and columns to re-order them. Google Sheets has this ability and I use it all the time. In excel if I want to move a row or column to re-order it, I need to use copy/paste and insert. It's a pain. If I'm viewing a list of items which I want to put into priority order, it is very difficult to do this in Excel. Whereas in Google Sheets, I can just drag and drop the rows to re-order them very easily.

  8. Include custom filter for pivot table

    When filtering the pivot tables or excel tables, we the Mac users aren't allowed to use custom filter and that can be frustrating when we need to filter out names from A to N, but as the row is categorised as "Texts", we do not get to use filters like "Greater than or equals to" which is only for "Numbers" category. Need this to be included soon.

  9. Exists in Windows not in Mac, very usefull when an item is selected, pressing the space bar will check/uncheck the check box.

    This is the behavior which is not in Mac or does not have an alternative, the only way is using the mouse click.
    Working with filters, when the filter is applied to a column and the drop down menu is active,
    When an item is selected, pressing the space bar will check/uncheck the check box.  Then press Enter to apply the filter.

  11. Improve Filtered Columns

    On a table that's filtered, when you hit the little filter drop down arrow the cursor should immediately go to the search box in the drop down, rather than having to click it again. As you've just hit the dropdown you obviously want to filter and as that's the only field you can type in while filtering it should go there automatically

  12. Comma Separation Option for Text String Values in Single Cell

    I have an .xlsx containing the titles of a bunch of books I'm using for a project with columns for things like the Title, Author, Year Published, etc. One of those columns is a "Keyword" column for classifying the book: e.g. novel, science fiction, anti-hero, etc. Each book has an entry containing multiple keywords, separated by commas.

    What I would like to be able to do is set up a filter for the entire sheet so that I can quickly pull up books tagged with a particular keyword. Unfortunately, Excel treats the text in the cell as a single value,…
