  2. Send to Mail Recipient

    I cannot find 'Send to Mail Recipient' in Excel for Mac. Why?

    In fact, why are so many commands that are available in Excel for windows not available in Excel for Mac?

    I am paying the same price, so should get the same functions! MS, should either get the Mac version to operate the same functions as windows, or offer a 50% discount for the 50% usability of the Mac version!

  3. Touch Mode

    Please create a more user friendly experience with touch mode. It is difficult to select multiple cells and drag formula ranges.

  4. Memory Overloading

    Tengo una macbook air mid 2013, corriendo con OS Catalina 10.15.6, 4GB de ram, cpu 1,3 GHz Intel Core i5 de dos núcleos, operaciones sencillas como aplicar formula "O" para encontrar valores en una matriz demandan 9GB de memoria ram, exigee al 187% la capacidad del CPU y tarda 1, 2 o mas horas en arrojar el resultado, luego copiar y pegar los valores de la columna toma 2 horas mas. cuando necesito trabajar en una hoja que mantenga varias formulas activas (sin copiar resultado y pegar solo los valores) resulta imposible trabajar.

  7. Reduce internet connection use.

    There should not be such a need for a constant internet connection with all Office apps. There are times when I cannot even cut and paste text without waiting for Excel to contact the server. That's just stupid. And no, I don't need to switch my whole computer to "Airplane Mode" as some one marked a similar suggestion as closed because. Nothing but Microsoft and Esri require constant connections. Everything else works fine without a great connection. No app should have to contact a server to cut and paste. This issue also causes problems with file versions on OneDrive, especially…

  11. I am trying to get custom keyboard shortcuts to work, and am following instructions. PLease make this work right.

    I am following the instructions, which are correctly written, I am able to perform all the steps to "insert row" (either above or below), or columns, but the keyboard shortcuts just don't work. I have quit and restarted Excel, but they still don't work.

    The shortcuts were previously unassigned (it tells you if it is already taken) so they theoretically should work but don't. Please fix! Excel (Office) 365.

  14. Excel for Mac needs a major overhaul

    I'm currently running Office 2019 for Mac, version 16.36, on OS X 10.14 (Mojave). I've spent hours on the phone with M'soft support for now more than a month, but none of the many Excel-for-Mac bugs have been fixed. All I get is another case number and a promise by the phone clerk to consult with the software "engineers" and get back to me. A week later I get a call saying, "Let's try this to see if it fixes the problem." It never does. Last week's try made things worse. I suspect the "engineers" can't find their way through…

  15. Saving a file with Excel 365 is very slow compared to Excel 2019 volume licence

    Multi tested on various computers, a 5 Mo Excel file takes 2,5sec with Excel 2019 when it takes more tham 80sec with Excel 365. Great disconfort for users. Is it just the fact the Excel 365 is a cloud based design program because, even off-line, it is the same result. Thanks

  16. adding by just clicking cells sequentially

    WHY is it to be a preference? Is there some conflict with some other workflow? This has begun to feel like someone has some sort of strange agenda.

  17. CALCULATE(sheet, on/off/calc)

    Add the ability to switch from manual automatic calculation (and vice versa) for a specific sheet. Make this controllable via a function so the developer can make an informed choice about when to re-calculate specific sheets.

  19. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, fix your problem with MAC Excel's ability to open https hyperlinks!!!!

    I swear if I read "cannot open the internet server or proxy server" ONE MORE TIME I WILL THROW THIS COMPUTER THROUGH THE WINDOW. The addresses have been verified by a third party certifier. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY SOMETHING SO SIMPLE CONTINUES TO BE A PROBLEM!!!

  20. Improve Excel for Mac performance

    Please improve Excel performance. I have Microsoft for Windows opened in a virtual machine alongside Excel for Mac. And despite limited resources Excel for Windows performs MUCH better.
    For example when I put any value in a cell and hit enter and do it multiple times in a row then I experience a noticeable lag. There's no lag when I use the Windows version for the same file.
