  4. Autosave should work to save the file in the same location automatically - not only if you are on Microsoft cloud.

  5. Remove the "auto save" feature before it destroys any more Excel files.

    Remove the "auto save" feature before it destroys any more Excel files. I decided to use the "auto save" feature on a very important file and it destroyed my file. Don't put computer features out there that you are not prepared to back up by fixing any mistakes you make.

  9. Add an option to Save All

    Currently the only way to do a Save All is to quit Excel and choose Save Al in the alert that shows up. It would be really great if there were a command to allow saving all at any time without having to Quit Excel

    When opening and saving files in version 16.36 the progress bar is completely gone. So is the calulation percentage display when recalculating worksheets. A major loss for everyday users.

  13. Make Office recognize SharePoint locations that are synced via OneDrive

    Right now if I open an Excel file that is stored on my Mac and is synced via OneDrive - Business (SharePoint locations), Excel does not recognize that file to be an online file. It still thinks that it is stored locally (eg no AutoSaving).

    But if I do the same thing with my personal OneDrive folder then it opens as an online file (eg AutoSaving works).

    Can you please improve the behavior of these files?

  14. Allow "good morning" to be hidden

    The "good morning" on the home page of Excel (and other Office applications) feels very patronising and childish. Could we have an option to hide it please?

  15. Please Fix UNREADABLE Open Recent File Name Display

    Presently the File > Open Recent menu displays an UNREADABLE bunch of file names that DOES NOT display long file names. Instead it sometimes gives a path name partially with a "-...>>" symbology in the middle of a file name. On shorter file names IT STILL DOESN'T DISPLAY THE WHOLE FILENAME and insists on spliting it up with a "..." in the middle. This is torment. PLEASE FIX THIS!!! IT WILL BE A TRIVIAL AMOUNT OF PROGRAMMING. See attached screen shot file to see how useless it is at present. HELP HELP HELP!!!

  16. Excel files can't be found with the recent update. What have you done?!

    It shows some files but they are blank and it tells me I have the name wrong and to check the spelling! Not true. This is so frustrating.
