  1. co-authoring:a banner in middle of page to know that connection had dropped or make the green part of the software red or something

    When editing on excel desktop (office365) a shared spreadsheet it doesnt inform me in a noticeable way if the connection drops. It does say on the top "save pending" or something similar but it is not noticeable enough. So what happens is that i could be editing at the same time as my partner (who is on excel online at that moment) and we could be making changes in the same cell without knowing it. It would be much better if there was a banner in the middle of the page letting me know that the connection had dropped or…

      • Independent filter/searches in excel on line for multiple users

        Re: Excel online sharing on onedrive

        It would be helpful if multiple users could access the same file online to edit/update/delete records AND be able to perform filter/contains searches independently (dynamically) without effecting the other users visibility.

        The spreadsheet we are using has 8,500+ rows of data.

        Thank you.

        • Multiple O365 accounts and Excel 15 for MacOS

          I have two Office365 accounts (one for work and one for family) but I am punished for being a good Microsoft customer with a non-functioning sign in mechanism. Every time I open a document stored in an O365 Sharepoint I am forced to sign in at least twice before the document opens. Even worse, at no point in the Sign-in process is any indication given which account you should be signing into, it is assumed that you remember which account the document was stored in; this does not sound like a product that is making life easier. I am raising…

          • Please add real time co-authoring

            It would be amazing to have the opportunity to edit and view a worksheet among multiple users at the same time. Just like you are able to work in the same document in Word.

            • Export to SharePoint

              It would be great if you could export from Excel to a Sharepoint list in Excel for Mac. At present you have to cut and paste which is prone to error with large files.

              • Ask to break links when sending a workbook by email

                This goes for Windows and Mac versions. Every day I receive workbooks by email that are linked to some server or PC in one country or another, increasing the file size and bogging down my machine as Excel tries to unlink the files, sometimes unsuccessfully, turning the cells to zeros.

                • Allow option to "Print Active Sheet" from "Sharing" on Excel on MacBook

                  When using the online version of Excel (on an iPad), going to Sharing / Send Attachment / Email / via PDF, it gives the option to "Print Active Sheet" or "Print Entire Workbook".

                  Unfortunately, when using the downloaded version of Excel on an iMac or MacBook, the Sharing Options / Send Attachment / via PDF, gives no option to print the "active sheet" and automatically sends the entire workbook.

                  Is there any way to send only the "active sheet" directly from Excel on a downloaded version of Excel used on iMac or MacBook?
