Excel for Mac should have the new Stocks functionalty
It would be great if Excel for Mac (Insiders) is able to have the new Stocks functionality currently used by Excel for PC (Insiders)
This functonality is described in https://support.office.com/enus/article/getastockquotee5af3212e0244d4cbea0623cf07fbc54
In respect of this particular capability, it would bring Excel for Mac more in line with Apple Numbers which currently offers something similar.
Thank you for considering this addition.

WeekNum  let it work with a Array like Month() does
We can use '=SUMPRODUCT( (MONTH(A1:A10)=MONTH(TODAY()) )* (B1:B10) )' to get a result from dates.
However
'=SUMPRODUCT( (WEEKNUM(A1:A10)=WEEKNUM(TODAY()) )* (B1:B10) )
does not, because WEEKNUM can't handle an array or range.Please give us a WEEKNUM that handles Array and ranges
Thank you.

Including a timeor datestamp on templates for reports
To insert a time or a date, we can either use the stamp function (e.g. ctrl+;) or use the formula (=TODAY). I would like to have the use of a timestamp inside a template, so that when we create a new sheet from that template, the fixed date appears, i.e. as a datestamp. I haven't found how to do this using help.

Rounding issue with Excel and dollar values
Current Issue just discovered talking to MS Excel Support to see if there is a work around or if someone is solving this error.
Issue is that when you place values in a cell and do a =ROUND function to format a currency value it rounds down not up. i.e. Summing to Cells and trying to find tax for the two values return in correct value.
=ROUND ($33.165, 2), returns 33.16 and not 33.17. This is a major show stopper for financial calculations and worksheets.1 vote 
Why is there no Menu item or Ribbon button for toggling between relative and absolute?
Yesterday, I spent a good 2 hours trying to change a table's references from relative to absolute. I couldn't find any Menu item or Ribbon button to perform this action, so had to resort to Google.
That lead me to the support.office.com page for Mac keyboard shortcuts (https://support.office.com/enus/article/KeyboardshortcutsinExcelforMacacf5419e1f87444d962f4e951a658ccd), which told me that I could use CMD+T (which creates a table) or F4 (which is a Redo shortcut).
So I called 365 support, where I hand to help the agent understand how to use several aspects of Excel (nothing is more frustrating than talking to an "expert" who knows…

Parse
I’d like to see a “parse” function that can easily separate out strings in cells and pull just one element instead of doing multiple mid() and find() functions. e.g. =PARSE(“Gift card from Company for $200”,4) would return “Company” or ,6 would return $200 etc. Maybe an optional parameter to specify the separators (sometimes it’s hyphens, sometimes spaces, sometimes bars etc). Another optional would be how many words to pull starting at word x, e.g. =PARSE(“This has useful data about product”,3,2) would return “useful data”

Adding notes to formulas?
Formulas can get extremely messy with messy data. This is especially true when a formula is 10+ lines long. Often, rereading a formula a few weeks later is absolutely indecipherable. Can we somehow be able to add notes to a formula, similiar to the ' in VBA?

SUMPRODUCT should work with rows and columns
SUMPRODUCT should calculate a value from the same dimensionsize arrays regardless of their vertical or horizontal alignment like for example =SUMPRODUCT(A1:D1,F1:F4)

Create a new "swapping" function
We have the transpose function that allows us to swap data from rows to columns, or vice versa … how about a function that allows us to swap data between two different rows, or two different columns. For example, if I have data in A1:A10 and I have data in B1:B10, I could highlight both sets of data, and by choosing this new function, I could swap the data, whereas A becomes B and B becomes A.

Put back the function
Please put the function for addition back on Excel  the one where you hit "=", then highlight the column of numbers, then hit "=" again and it adds up for you. It is way more efficient than what you have now.

Make Name Manager Mac = Name Manager Windows
Where has the Name Manager for Mac (Excel 2016) gone? I have imported work done earlier on a Windows platform and now need to work with the named ranges...but cannot find a way to access the Name Manager. The suggestion I find on the web to push command +fn + F3 does not work.

"Manual" calculation setting should not affect other spreadsheets
If a user has a spreadsheet that has calculations set to "Manual" (for what reason, I can't fathom), if they open that spreadsheet *first*, then all subsequent spreadsheets open in that session will do manual calculation.
Calculation settings should not be *global* like that. If you have to have a Manual calculation spreadsheet, that should only affect *that single spreadsheet*  not any others that may be concurrently opened.
This is a terrible design choice.

Static timestamps that has an option to be updated when a target cell is updated.
It would be great to have the ability to use a function that targets a cell and when the target cell receives a value gives a "static" Date and Time stamp. Also have a true/false option for updating timestamp when target cell value changes.
Currently the only options are VBA or circular reference. NOW just isn't any use for static timestamps?? Or have

clicking on cell while using formula adds it to formula
In older versions, (2011) when you entered "=" and clicked on a particular cell, it added that cell's value to the formula. You could then click on another cell and it would use addition to add the second selection. Example: When entering = and clicking A1 then clicking B1, then clicking C1, formula would calculate "=A1+B1+C1". Now we have to manually enter "+", or the cell first clicked is replaced with the most recently selected cell.
